Would you give a donation to Obama in lieu of a birthday or wedding gift?

CBS News) President Obama wants to wish you a very happy birthday - and as his gift to you, he'll let you donate a portion of your gift money to his reelection campaign.

A blog post on the Obama/Biden 2012 website on Friday announced the campaign's newest fundraising ploy - the "Obama Event Registry," which asks anyone with an upcoming birthday, wedding, or anniversary to "support the President on your big day" by asking for donation money "in lieu of a gift."

"Let your friends know how important this election is to you," the post reads. "Instead of another gift card you'll forget to use, ask your friends and family for something that will go a little further: a donation for Obama for America."

Replete with a section that allows anyone interested to create actual accounts for their registry, the site reasons, "it's a gift that we can all appreciate--and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl."

    As much as I want to see Obama re-elected I dont think my husband or daughter want a political donation as a gift.

    thanks for your comment....I can't imagine anyone really wanting this kind of present.....a charity donation, or scholarship gift in their name...but a political race?!?!
  • Tennessee3501 2012/06/23 19:05:56
    Yes, nothing says Happy Birthday or Congratulations like a political donation...

    In a way we all are doing so. We cannot afford to buy gifts for anybody, because our taxes are so high and President Obama uses our money to buy votes!

    You would do it to promote the causes of higher taxes, higher unemployment, higher deficits, more corruption, more waste, more socialism, more communism, more illegal immigration, more Islamic terrorism and a weak national defense. Isn't that more important than a birthday or a wedding?
