And now, a message from the Obama campaign
I get e-mail from Obama 2012 headquarters:
I love seeing 2008 bumper stickers on cars and bicycles when I travel across the country. But as we start to see Republican gear hit the streets, what about making sure people know you’re supporting the President in 2012?
You can do that with a 2012 campaign car magnet. Will you donate $10 or more and we’ll send you one?
An Obama 2012 car magnet? With a minimum $10 donation to the campaign? Clearly, the Obama campaign doesn’t realize there’s a recession going on right now. Oh, well. The e-mail continues:
Maybe you’re wondering how putting a magnet on your car will help re-elect the President.
When people see us out in the neighborhood showing support with our clothing, our dog leashes, our cars, or our water bottles, it starts conversations. You might get a chance to tell someone why you’re supporting the President, and maybe even convince someone to sign up to volunteer.
At the very least, you’ll show everyone that you’re on the President’s team — and you’re proud of it.
Starting conversations is good. Unfortunately for the Obama camp, I’m seeing some different sentiments on people’s cars these days. I saw this down in Cape May this past July:
Talk about starting conversations. And this one I saw on the way to work just last week:
These are all in New Jersey for pete’s sake.
And from Virginia, a state that many leftist bloggers and pundits are claiming is turning deep blue, a friend sends this:
Maybe Americans are tired of having “conversations” with this president. And maybe, just maybe, they’re about ready to move on.
