Figures. Obama Doesn’t Give His Own Kids Birthday Presents But He Wants Yours

In 2008 Barack Obama admitted that he and his wife do not give birthday presents to their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
The Telegraph reported:

In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.

The couple explained that they spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and want to “teach some limits”. Santa Claus is still permitted to deliver seasonal gifts however.

The girls are also given an allowance of just $1 (50p) a week for performing household chores, according to People magazine. Those chores include making their own bed, setting and clearing the dinner table and putting themselves to bed by 8.30pm.

But he wants yours…
Today the Obama Campaign asked supporters to forgo birthday and wedding presents and send the cash to the Obama campaign.
Via Weasel Zippers:

That takes some nerve. He says he doesn’t give his own kids presents but he wants yours!

    More evidence that the kids are not really theirs, they are just hired actors in the obama theater.

    Obama’s Desperate Fundraising Ploys

    [RUSH: It starts out this way: “For the first 10 years of our marriage, Barack and I lived in an apartment in my hometown of Chicago. The winters there can be pretty harsh, but no matter how snowy or icy it got, Barack would head out into the cold — shovel in hand…” Do they not get the irony here? She’s got Obama leaving the family abode with a shovel. Here’s a guy that promised shovel-ready jobs and then joked about them. He leaves the family abode, “shovel in hand — to dig my car out before I went to work. In all our years of marriage, he’s always looked out for me.

    “Now, I see that same commitment every day to you and to this country. The only way we’ll win this election is if we can rely on one another like that, all the way to November 6th. You should know that your recent donation means a lot to both of us. Barack is working hard, but he can’t do this alone — he needs your help. Will you make another donation today to build this campaign? When you do, you’ll be automatically entered to join Barack and me for a casual dinner.”


    He was not making it up. The Obama Event Registry. You can click on “register with Obama 2012.” You’re getting married or you have a birthday. You’re supposed to tell your guests to donate to Obama instead to you. It’s right here. Obama is asking people getting married to forego gifts for themselves and ask their guests to donate to him. It’s a guy calling other people greedy and selfish. Exactly right. Now Valerie Jarrett’s daughter got married not long ago. Did she forego gifts? Valerie Jarrett’s daughter. Did Obama ask Valerie Jarrett’s daughter to ask her wedding guests to send money to him? No way. You know it didn’t happen.


    RUSH: How long is it going to be before Obama starts asking people to remember his campaign in their wills? You can see it now, a website, (Obama impression) “If one of my death panels determines your life is to end, please remember my re-election campaign in your will.” It’s just as brazen as asking you to forget wedding gifts and give them to him.]

    Thank God Obambam is ” asking” for gifts for himself.
    He could have sent his black and/or muslim and union thugs to your homes to ” redistribute” your gifts .
    Then what you would have done ?

  • old glazier

    Another peek into the souless ONE. I asked my youngest grandson if I should send his birthday money to the President. He thought not, that Presidents get too much already. Heh. Smart kid.

  • democraps suck

    That is because mooslums do not believe in Christmas…hence no Xmas presents…that would go against his Koran teachings

    There are no words for this low-class joke of a “president” and his entourage.

    And BTW, don’t even think about donating that $3 to The None’s campaign in hopes of “winning” dinner with him . . . the dinner, transport and so forth is “valued” at $4000+ on which you must pay taxes just like any lottery winnings!

    Pretty expensive $3 donation if you ask me!

    The man is so selfish. He is even spending more than he has on his campaign but I guess to him we are like his daughters. He thinks our money is his and he can dole it out to whoever appeals to him. It will teach us humility.

    And that spending more than he has doesn’t even begin to account for the HUGE travel costs that are being billed to the American taxpayer so that he can attend his fundraisers. One little stop at some memorial and it becomes his “legitmate duty as potus”.

    democraps suck commented: Muslims don’t give Christmas presents.

    Damn! I didn’t think of that. They threw in not giving them Birthday presents so it wouldn’t stand out that they didn’t give Christmas presents.

    Most still want to think calling Obama a Muslim is some kind of conspiracy theory but this latest is only one of many things that point in that direction. The truth will out but not until this frickin liar is defeated in a landslide.

  • paul

    you can have my birthday presents when you can pry them from my cold dead hands

  • Redwine

    Holy crap. This is truly insane. This poseur-in-chief is a paranoid sociopath:

  • Winston Wolfe

    Just when I think these clowns can’t get any more pathetic, they pull something like this.

    If you must send money, consider the wounded warrior fund. That way real men benefit.
