Seriously, you have to give them credit for being the biggest hounds on the planet! I signed onto the enemy website to see what they were sending out and today I got my third request for money from the Obama Campaign. Can you spare $3? Mind chipping in? This is really a pathetic attempt to drain even the poorest of the poor - they don't bother asking for a normal amount: $10, $25, $50. Na - not this classy bunch of politicitians. They want the $3 buck donations to be send in over and over and over, til you don't even realize what you have sent them!!
Anyway, just putting this out there to keep us informed of their movements... Every time I get one of these, I get a sick feeling - they are good on the technology side. They also use lingo directed at younger donors or people who are 'kinda simple' as my mom used to say, as if you are getting a little instant message from your friend Barack, or your pal MIchelle. Again, it makes me sick. But I do think we need to be doing similar things...
There are two ways to look at it: This is yet another email from the campaign in your inbox. Or this email is making our organization stronger.
Grassroots support, especially online, is how we compete with our opponents. And we won't win without it.
If you've got a few bucks to spare, mind chipping in before midnight?
