OBAMA RAFFLE FOR BUCKS - THE DEMEANING OF THE PRESIDENCY
Now in one of the most demeaning acts in Presidential history Barack Obama's reelection campaign is raffling off four tickets to have a personal dinner with Obama. All donors have to do is donate five dollars, yes five dollars and they receive one chance to win one of the raffle tickets. The more five dollar donations one makes of course the more chances to win a ticket.
While the President is not royalty as the Chief Executive of our Nation there is a great deal of decorum and prestige to the office and raffling off a chance to eat with the President lowers that prestige to the level of a side show making the Presidency nothing more than an item to raise dollars for a candidate who is running for the office again.
The Presidency is not for sale and in many respects Obama allowing himself to be raffled to raise money for his campaign is selling the Presidency in a very cheap and demeaning manner that does not fit the office or the prestige of the Presidency. Obama may be a Chicago thug who is willing to sell himself to the highest bidder, but the office he holds does not deserve this circus side show.
Bill Clinton used the Lincoln Bedroom in The White House as a reward for fat cat donors who were given the opportunity to stay the night in the room that Lincoln actually used as his working office during his Presidency and since has been used as a bedroom. This cheapened The White House in ways not seen before Bubba's reign as President.
As demeaning as that was to the Presidency, Obama being raffled in order to raise campaign funds makes Clinton's Lincoln Bedroom escapade seem nothing in comparison. Not only is Obama raffling himself he is doing so for only five bucks. Even Presidential fund raisers charge hundreds and even thousands of dollars to attend large dinners where the President is the guest. But for five bucks campaign donors have a chance for a personal meal with Obama.
This man has no respect for the office he holds and has shown that throughout his tenure in office. This belittling of the Office of President of The United States takes even Barack Obama to a new low in his disrespect and demeaning of the Presidency.
