It was a sad day when I realized the election was over and that I would no longer be receiving fundraising emails from the Obama Campaign. I eagerly awaited the most recent too-friendly salutations from Barack (or Barry, as he likes to be called). They often asked me to come party with him at his house or on his plane. Like a designated driver asking for gas money, all I had to do was pitch in and I could hang with the former Choom Gang member. While I always found it weird, creepy and undignified, I still miss the hilarity of his pompous audacity. Ah, those were the days…
Luckily, just because he’s still president doesn’t mean the days of him hitting me up for cash is behind us. While it was once the norm for presidents to poise themselves with dignity and grace, the recently re-elected president who is the living embodiment of narcissism has started to ask people to pitch into his inauguration.
In a recent email, Obama states,
“Because of you, I’ll be taking the oath of office again on January 21st.
I’d like you to be part of this historic moment — whether that’s in Washington, D.C., or wherever you call home.
As we make plans, we want to make sure the people who made this inauguration possible are the first to know what’s happening.
Add your name here to take part in inaugural activities.
I’m honored each and every day to be your president, and I will never forget how I got here.

That’s all well and good, except that when you add your name to be part of the celebration of the glory of our Dear Leader, you get hit up for money to- and I quote- “Celebrate four more years of President Obama.”
As America struggles to make ends meet thanks to fiscally insane policies championed by socialists like Obama, he has the nerve to ask us to dig a little deeper to help him out?!
