Michelle’s Appeal to Help With Obama’s Gray Hair

Victoria —

Every day, I see Barack make choices he knows will affect every American family. That’s no small task for anyone — and more proof that he’s earning every last one of those gray hairs. The way I figure it, he’s spent at least $100 billion of your Grand children’s tax dollars for each and every one of those gray hairs.  

 

 


This has been a busy week in Washington. Barack has gotten out on the golf course only a couple of times and we’re still planning our next big vacation before the 2012 election, but today happens to be Barack’s 50th birthday. I’m writing to you because this year, the girls and I would like to do something a little different. Yes, we’d like to ask you for money in a different way!

I’m asking friends and supporters of this campaign to wish him a happy birthday by signing his card, and sharing why you’re on this journey with us. We’ve never actually done a card for Barack before. Usually it’s just a run of the mill money tree. This year, however, we’re asking you to sign the card and then sign over your credit card number as well. We’re trying to raise a $1 billion in campaign donations! That money together with that boat load of dough the Republicans let him have in the debt ceiling debate ought to give him enough ‘walking around money’ to distribute to his friends in the unions. Gosh, with this kind of money we can reconstitute ACORN! Buy another network (isn’t Jeff Immelt doing a great job for us?) and get George to set us up another Media Matters or Organizing for America website. The possibilities are endless! 

Your names and notes will become part of a book that tells the story of this campaign — who’s building it, why we’re in this thing, and what he means to us. We’ll deliver a copy to Barack and send one to our campaign offices across the country. Then Barack will use all your names in all of his future speeches. It will go something like this: “Loretta Braindead of Wackinack, New Jersey sent me this well wish, ‘I was in my home and Barack Obama gave me a new kitchen. Those men in those purple shirts from the union untied me so I could use it after I promised to sign over all my social security checks to Barack Hussein Obama and all his friends at C.A.S.H. They’re so nice!’ That’s right, we’ll WIN THE FUTURE with people like Loretta here.”

Sign the card for Barack.

I’ve known Barack for more than 20 of his 50 years, and we’ve been through quite a lot together. We’ve sat in that church for 20 years together. Learned chemistry experiments from his old pal Bill Ayers. And learned the art of the deal from Barack’s good friend Tony Rezko, or, as we like to call him, Inmate 78383875116.

It still amazes me that no matter how many decisions and distractions he’s faced with every day, he’s always able to focus on the bigger picture. For instance, he doesn’t just want to play the course at Andrews Air Force base. No, he’s played that course, what, 80 times so far? No, his vistas go far beyond that course. He can’t wait to play Pebble Beach on the taxpayer dime. He looks forward to the day when he can tee off at St. Andrews. One way he does that is by making time for stories and letters from people like you — because he knows that this job isn’t about him, Oh, come on, who am I kidding? Of course it’s all about him! He’s a petulant single child raised up by a bunch of doting adults who kept telling him how smart and special he was. Of COURSE he thinks it’s about him but he says it’s really all about the millions of folks around the country he’s fighting for. Of course your fight may be different from his fight. You may want to keep your own money for instance, but Barrack has different plans. Because he’s fighting for all those millions of folks, he wants to take YOUR money and give it to one of them. That’s special, right?

This next year will challenge us all to work harder than ever before, but the crucial thing is that you’re here now, early on, helping to build this campaign. He’s only in year three of Cloward Piven and he’s almost done destroying the US economy. Please send him money so he can complete the job!

I know that, like Barack and me, you have your own reasons why, so I hope you’ll take a moment to sign the card and share your story with him and other supporters of this campaign.

Thanks for being a part of this destruction of American exceptionalism and ending the relationship the individual has with their government and advancing the cause of the cadres and the collective!

Candidates: Start Your Engines

Yes, CD 1 is Purple. Let’s Paint it Red.

The word came down late last night that the primary for the race to replace David Wu will be held November 8, 2011 while the general election will be held in January of 2012.

While the Democrats have a huge advantage in the district, that advantage has been tapered by the recent redistricting and disgust with a Democrat party that has covered for David Wu amid news stories, speculations and behavior all these years.

Make no mistake, it will be a David/Goliath battle. The Republicans haven’t held this seat for decades, and confront not only an electoral disadvantage but also the embedded disadvantage since the D’s control every single lever of government–and aren’t afraid to use it.

The Democrat party is the party of big government. Growing government is in the DNA of the party for one main reason. When they need troops for re election, government union members salute en mass and march up the hill for the folks who promise to give them better pay and benefits: Democrats.  Unions provide the ground troops that can be –like MRE’s–reconstituted at a moment’s notice. Add money and voila! Instant army.

The Governor of Multnomah County, John Kitzhaber, and Secretary of State Kate Brown are among the most partisan executives we’ve seen this side of Kulongoski and Bradley. They’re not afraid to use every official and unofficial tool at their disposal to keep this seat in Democrat hands. Their boy, Brad Avakian, has been using his position at the Bureau of Labor and Industries to push forward the liberal agenda at the expense of freedom and jobs (more on this in later posts).

Make no mistake, if our candidate gets one toe out of line, or if the left squints and THINKS they see a toe out of line, it will be demonized and a willing press will lap it up. TV and radio will see the headlines and pick up the narrative.

The Republicans have many faithful as well as the Tea Party hoping to claim another Congressional seat. The 1st CD provides a huge opportunity. However it will take every single Independent, Republican and conservative in Oregon to swarm CD 1 from today forward to tell our story to have a chance at this seat.

The election will be held just eleven months before the big test of November 2012.
Scott Brown showed the way in Massachusetts in January 2010, depriving the Democrats of their crucial 60th vote to ram through legislation. Then came the continued conservative wave in the November 2010 elections when Republicans took over the US House of Representatives and declawed Nancy Pelosi.

We can do it. How badly do we want this?

The Letter from Wu: "The Time Has Come…I Resign…Immediately"

A hand written letter has been sent to the Governor of Oregon on official Congressional letterhead. Here’s the transcript:

August 3, 2011
Dear Governor Kitzhaber, 
Serving as a United States Congressman has been the honor of my life.  There is no other job where you get up every day and ask, ‘How can I try to make the world a better place today?’
Of particular significance to me in this effort to improve the world is investing more in science and education. Also, I believe my support of people around the world who are struggling for human rights and civil liberties will ultimately bear fruit in the world which is not just and peaceful. 
However great the honor and engaging the work, there comes a time to hand on the privilege of office. That time has come. With gratitude to the people of Oregon and confidence that our best days are yet to come, I hereby resign as their United States Congresman for the First Congressional District of Oregon effective immediately.
God Bless the people of Oregon and the United States of America. 
I am very gratefully yours,

David Wu

David Wu is *Reportedly* Now An Ex-Congressman

…and it couldn’t happen too soon. 
It’s a done deal:

From Fox News:

Democratic Rep. David Wu of Oregon has notified state and federal authorities that his resignation would be effective at the end of the day Wednesday, making him the fourth member of Congress to resign this year in the wake of a sex scandal.

We’ll help you pack. As one of my listeners put it, “We’ll send you a Wu-Haul.”
Here’s his statement via KGW:

Washington, DC — Congressman David Wu:
“Serving as a U.S. Congressman has been the greatest honor of my life. There is no other job where you get up each day and ask, ‘How can I try to make the world a better place today?’
“Particularly meaningful to me has been working for more and better investments in science and education. Also, I believe that my support for people who struggle for human rights and civil liberties will ultimately bear fruit in a world that is more just and peaceful.

Also from KGW:

“We are glad that Oregon can move forward and find a replacement in the First Congressional District,” Oregon Democratic Party Chairt Meredith Wood Smith said. “It is critical that this process begins immediately so that the citizens of the district can have a representative in Congress.  The Democratic Party is excited to see so many outstanding Democratic candidates step forward to fill the vacancy.”
