Yesterday I read something during the show that really pissed me off, and surprise, it has to do with politics!
A blog was posted on President Obama’s website requesting for people who are getting married to register with the site and "support the President on your big day" by asking guests to donate money in lieu of a gift.
This also applies to birthdays, anniversaries, or any other big celebration.
Here is what the site says:
“Got a special milestone or event coming up?
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 to Obama for America. Register your next celebration—whether it’s a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary—with the Obama campaign. It’s a great way to show your support for a cause that’s important to you on your big day.
Just log in or sign up to build and customize your page—and congratulations!”

For those who don’t know, I do not discriminate between democrats and republicans because I hate both parties. That’s why I have no problem beating up the president over this because this is really low move.
It is the lowest of the low to ask for people’s wedding or birthday gift money when we know how much money Barrack has and how much other politicians have.
Just think of the poor people who think they are doing the right thing and forgo a wedding gift that they probably need. When you’re getting married, generally you are just starting out building a home so you need those gifts and money to help you out.
This is a lame move on your part President Obama, a really lame move.
