Final Obama Campaign E-mails Berate, Blame Supporters

Depending on who you are, if you receive e-mail updates from the Obama-Biden campaign you may have gotten a few strident notes in your inbox over the last week. In making the closing pitch to supporters and potential donors, the President’s campaign has struck a negative tone attempting to shame supporters who haven’t done enough into doing more. “You’ve waited until the last minute here,” one e-mail dated November 2 fumes to a supporter who has not contributed enough money to Obama for America.

Noted for its versatile use of technology and micro-targeting, the Obama campaign blew its Republican opposition out of the water in part thanks to a massive technology edge in 2008.
The edge is hardly as pronounced this time around, but the Obama campaign continues to send carefully scripted missives to segments of its vast e-mail list attempting to turn supporters into activists and donors.
”Look — Barack and I need you,” an e-mail sent in Vice President Joe Biden’s name to a female recipient on October 27 reads. The fundraising plea says that a cash disadvantage can be overcome but “only if you step up and do your part.”

 

Ann Marie Habershaw, the COO for Obama for America, signed her name to another harsh message sent November 3. “According to our records associated with this email address, you haven’t chipped in to this campaign yet. So this is it, the very last call. If you care about the outcome of this election, now is the time to show it.” The e-mail repeatedly emphasizes how serious it is that the recipient starts contributing to the campaign. “Please hear me when I say this is serious, and the decisions we’re making are very concrete — and final.”

    That is a fake email photoshopped by Romeneny supporters.

    Maybe if the Nobel committee awards Obama the humanitarian Peace Prize for his work on the Sandy hurricane relief efforts?

    Karen –

    Barack and I. We’ve been watching you. Counting the vig. Keeping score.

    Nice place you got here. Be a shame if anything were to, uh, happen to it. SMASH! Sorry, Karen! I didn’t mean to knock over that vase. But accidents happen, see? So you need insurance. And you can buy some by clicking this here button:

    My Pandora and Iheart radio and other outlets are all profiled for Cincinnati, even though I moved back Texas. The good people of Ohio have got it bad, you can’t hide from Barry and his pet orka Michelle, hell I wouldn’t be surprized if they didn’t pop up out of your toilet while you are taking a crap to beg for your vote and a ten spot.

    Meanwhile, the Republicans are pretty happy with how the election is going for them. I hope their right.

    I listened to Dick Morris go over the RCP blend of polls that Fox always touts as the most accurate of averages. You don’t need to have Morris’s background to know what’s been happening to all those polls. They’re wrong based on the underlying data (that’s not presented). Romney’s win is going to be a LOT bigger than any of the polls suggest. Every indicator has got voters moving away from obama and moving towards Romney. That’s all I need to know.

    Hello, Karen:

    This the Obama campaign putting the squeeze on you for money. Don’t make us beg, Karen, because if Obama is re-elected, we will take your money by force. Making us beg for money at this point will only serve to make us angry at you, and you don’t want to make a bunch of Chicago people angry.

    Besides, we know you purchased a Grande Non-Fat Chocolate Mocha last week. Here we are asking for a measly three dollars, and you are spending $5.50 on frivolous things that your bathroom scale says you don’t need and which aren’t available in re-education camps anyway. (Oops – you may want to forget that last remark. Or not). Do you want to waste your money on Grande Non-Fat Chocolate Mochas, Karen, or do you want us to provide you with a free lifetime supply of condoms?

    Choose wisely.

    Unless and until, post election, Oboobie and his entire menagerie are brought up on charges of treason and tried, convicted, and sentenced, we stand the horrid abominable possibility that he will run again and again…. once he is convicted of high crimes against the USA, and is branded a felon and traitor, he then can NEVER run….work cut of for us.
