“Walk Down the Aisle with Barack” contest

“Walk Down the Aisle with Barack” contest

The sickest thing about it is that when you read the headline, it didn’t surprise you in the least.  Such is the state of the Obama campaign.

With everyone talking about the bizarre Obama Event Registry, wherein people are asked to have wedding guests donate to Obama in lieu of the betrothed couple, anything is possible.

Brides who give up their wedding gifts to Obama will be entered in a contest to win a special Barack Bouquet so that Barack can walk you down the aisle.  (No, not really, but allow your imagination to roam in the age of Obama.)

He wants to be with you the whole way, because he cares that much.

Reader Patricia produced this announcement:

For more of what is possible, check out #ObamaFundraisingIdeas.

[Note:  I thought it was clear from the text of the post that this was just a parody.  From some of the comments I’m wondering whether this was clear enough.  Just a parody.  Just a parody.]


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Wow. What a bizarre idea! I guess the president IS the first gay president.

The BOuquet is a joke, right? Right?

1. He wants to be with you the whole way, because he cares that much.

The whole way to the bank, that is. To your bank.

2. Maybe major donors should be allowed to marry in the White House Rose Garden, with Obama personally leading them down the aisle garden path.

3. The image is incorrect because those are White Privilege roses. Barack and Michelle will send the lucky winner roses of color, probably Hugo Chavez red.

4. Excuse me, Patricia, everybody’s a critic. Great job!

Unbelievable!! “Fricking” Unbelievable, actually.

They forgot to include funerals as an occasion to donate memorials in lieu of flowers to the cause.

Wonder how many to-be-marrieds would politicize their wedding and take a chance on alienating some of their various relatives and friends. Realistically, there would be a fair per centage who would not want to donate to Obama.

Typical narcassistic of Obama – not matter what the occasion, it ultimately is about him.

    Well, since your child who just graduated college is probably still living with you due to the Obamaconomy anyway, this would be a perfect time to return all the graduation gifts and give the money to Barack!

    Just as a thank-you to Barack for letting your little darling live at home with you even longer.

    Technically, dead people can’t vote or donate to a campaign, but why let the law get in the way of good intentions.

So when does Barack issue the Executive Order claiming jus primae noctis?

    O don’t say that. The Grooms have a lot to worry about on a wedding night – now they have to watch their behind.

This has got to be the final scraping of the barrel. Right?

How many weddings will have registries open between now and November? How many are made up of two people that will both vote for Obama? And how many of those would forgo cool gifts for themselves (or their future spouse)?

Or worse, imagine the look on a kid’s face at a confirmation or bar/bat mitzvah when they find out their nutty aunt gave their gift to Obama.

    Next they will be asking for us to remember Obama in our wills.
    And I thought PBS fundraisers were bad…

    persecutor in reply to Jay Jones. | June 23, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    No, the lowest will be when they suggest that in lieu of flowers or a charitable donation, you send a donation in memory of some dear departed.

Holy smokers! This is so Third-World-leader-cultish. Of course, if Barack Hussein 0bama really came to your wedding, you could only serve finger food, or ice-cream. Follow the link to Riehl World View. They really were asked to give up their knives and forks. Who is nuttier, BH0, or his staff that thinks this stuff up?

    profshadow in reply to Milwaukee. | June 23, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    They don’t want to know what anyone with some thought can do with a spoon. Weapons are everywhere.

    Unpleasant, unbidden thought: Spooning with 0bama.

While it would be easy to say this man and his campaign are exploitative beyond description, I think the more accurate observation is that we have before us a “societal tell” (to use a little poker language). Has our society become so morally debilitated that it would seriously entertain this absurd idea. Imagine, using your wedding cash and gifts to give to a man whose purpose is to weaken America (and your future family) even more than what he has already done in 3.5 years. This man is truly a danger to America’s entire well-being.

What should concern us all? Do we have enough Paul Reveres between now and November warning the countryside.

I have a rule…

no relationships with narcissists.

I can be alone by myself, just fine… Being alone in a relationship is WAY too expensive.

I would have believed Patricia’s announcement mock-up was real. What great, great damage this man has done to the institution of the American presidency. Any day now I expect to see he’s turned the president’s limo into a bouncing hoopty.

Obama must have an all gay team thinking up these shameless fundraising gimmicks…

Baracko cheezo the wedding planner.

    In ‘Marley and Me ‘ the family were asked to let the crew come & see how a normal household works & where stuff was etc so that they might be able to reproduce a family setting & props.

    Yes the set guys & deigners were gay. That’s Hollywood & practically all TV.

What a FRAUD. He has no shame. I hope that Fox News reports on this.
Isn’t that like Clinton selling nights in the Lincoln bedroom?

If you are scheduled for hemorrhoid surgery please ask your friends to consider a donation to Obama in lieu of get will cards or flowers.

SoCA Conservative Mom | June 22, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Creepy. Ironic that the Amazon ad at the right features Obama as the Joker on the jacket of Lost in “Zombieland: The Rise of President Zero.”

BannedbytheGuardian | June 22, 2012 at 9:40 pm

So funny . This has to be the best joke of the whole century so far.

Now i shall go & check out the gloom on the other side of the pond.

And the bride wore white. This photo of an Obama supporter greeting him at the airport today is just one of the reasons it took me a few seconds before I realized Patricia’s pic was a parody.

Juba Doobai! | June 22, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I know it’s a parody, but the belief that it is real is because the parody is one shade away from reality. This guy is raffling away the prestige of the office of the POTUS.

NC Mountain Girl | June 22, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I thought the Clinton’s were rubes when they asked supporters to help furnish their house in Chappaqua but this plumbs new depths of Democrat crassness

Okay, serious question here – if he gets 3 or so rich liberal families to do this…was it worth it (minus Conservative ridicule)?

Too bad Bo (their Portuguese Water Dog) was neutered. Otherwise, they could put him “to work” making puppies. These, then, they could sell for a hefty sum.

Michelle could write a trilogy: Vol 1 entitled “I Have Never Been so Proud of America” Vol 2 entitled “I Have Never Been so Disappointed in America” and Vol 3 entitled “With a Second Term for Barack I would Have such Hope for America”.

Another money-making scheme might be to create a video of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s most hilarious press onference statements.

It just occurred to me “whose side am I on, anyway!” I stop now.

Describing just how much Obama debased the presidency through Obama’s “Event Registry” is difficult to quantify: but Patricia’s Walk Down the Aisle With Barack Parody does it handily. Leftist Jon Stewart apparently “left the Left” enough to go after Fast and Furious and Executive Privilege a wee bit today. Will he further unleash himself and go after not only the Event Registry but also Birthday Girl Elizabeth Warren?

I thought it was clear from the text of the post that this was just a parody.

Okay, you got me. But in my defense, the only thing that’s really not credible about this is that you were the only site I saw that talked about it…

TrooperJohnSmith | June 22, 2012 at 11:36 pm

For an additional donation of $100,000 Barack will fly to your city and:
1. Give away the bride.
2. Dance/DJ at the bachelor or bachelorette party.
3. Marry the couple (Barack has power!).
4. Issue a personal “executive order” for all to be happy for you!
5. Supervise the wedding night.
6. Loan his “auto-pen” for thank-you notes on White House letterhead.

For an additional $10,000 Michelle will jump out of a specially-designed wedding cake!

To order, go to our website!

See, I told y’all you’ll love this! 🙂

Umm, this is for real right?
I don’t mean to be disrespectful of the office of the presidency but it seems the fellow holding that position really doesn’t care anyway.
He’s quickly becoming an embarrassment, a laughingstock. I mean seriously, this from the White House?
There’s no dignity in this. None.

Why stop at weddings. There’s also christenings and bar mitzvahs.

Oh, and funerals. Perfect. “Why waste your money sending flowers when the memory of your loved one can help President Obama get reelected.”

Baby Showers. That’s even better. I can see the card now.

“To ensure that your daughter won’t get cancer because the Republicans have poisoned the Earth, I’ve donated the cost of your gift to the Committee to Reelect Barack Obama.”

    Barack Obama: The Bride at Every Wedding, The Corpse at Every Funeral, the Child at Every Christening, etc.

TrooperJohnSmith | June 23, 2012 at 7:16 am

In my estimation, the important point here is that some of the readers were willing to accept this at face value. That speaks directly to the fact that the Obama Administration has deviated from the norm so often and in such unexpected, if not outright strange, ways, that we’re ready to believe most anything.

Is this by design? Does this make it easier for them to go even further, as they have already laid the groundwork for the body politic to stop, wonder and ask the question, “Is this real?” Confusion and doubt were important tools used by Quislings and Fifth Columnists in earlier times.

Sorry, but everything these people do, I process through by Cloward-Piven and Alinsky filters. One of these days, there will really be a wolf out there when the little boy cries out!

This is odd.

I’d think a rather informal meeting at a D.C. club for drinks, then a little fornicating in the back of Limo 1, followed an abortion right before the election would be more Barry’s style…

This must be for the Obama’s retirement home on the Malvinas.

The Secret Service rounded up all the knives and forks from a luncheon Friday of NALEO before the President appeared.

“It’s very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible,” National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the group’s annual conference.

I guess this means that they won’t need any silverware (except for spoons) .. a potato peeler sounds nice.

Just a parody until the Obama campaign sees it and lifts it.

Phillep Harding | June 23, 2012 at 5:19 pm

It might be fun to print that out and put it up on a few school bulletin boards…

Just for scientific research, of course.

Many people are missing the point. The Obama campaign wants your email address and other information for their database. Come November in crucial swing states, they’re going to be sending out micro-targeted messages based on gender, age, ethnicity to get out the vote. So while we’re laughing now, let’s hope Obama doesn’t have the last.

jimzinsocal | June 24, 2012 at 9:15 am

Sort of a reminder..yet again of the Carnival Barker sort of President we have.
And although probably not intended, this silliness becomes a metaphor for how Obama views things.
“Government” can and will find better ways to spend your money. Forget the economic impact of spending for gifts that help small and large business alike. My needs are more important. Its more important that my campaign money is spread around my close associates than your trite gifts to others. Dear Leader says so.
