Last week, it was hobnobbing with Sarah Jessica Parker. Then yesterday comes this email from President Obama’s campaign gushing about what it be would like to “be a fly on the wall” at his fundraising event with President Clinton.
They described it as “almost ridiculously cool.” I describe it as embarrassing and out of touch.
Really, Mr. President? With record high unemployment and spending through the roof, you’re focused on parties with Hollywood celebrities and how cool it is to hobnob with you.
The American people are tired of celebrity ‘leadership’. We’re focused on solutions to get people back to work, and grow the economy so that people can stay in their homes, save for education and retirement, and correct the dangerous debt problem threatening our nation. That’s why so many Americans are standing with my campaign.
Steadfast and loyal,

Subject: Two tickets to meet Presidents Obama and Clinton in New York
To: Allen West <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Meeting the President of the United States is an incredible thing.
Meeting two presidents at the same time? Now, that’s almost ridiculously cool.
These two presidents know better than anyone in the world that grassroots supporters are how you win elections.
That’s why President Obama always wants to be able to meet you at events like this, and why President Clinton jumped at the chance.
This promises to be one amazing evening. Imagine how great it would be to be a fly on the wall when Presidents Obama and Clinton get together. Now imagine getting to be part of the conversation.
Enter today and you could win two tickets to New York to be there with them:
Seriously, good luck.
Obama for America
