And they just keep rolling in… (Obama email #2)

Just received another “send money to Obama” email…

At least this time if I send at least $3.00, I will be entered to join him in Chicago. It’s almost as good as Publisher’s Clearinghouse.

Friend —

When I decided to run for president, I had significantly fewer gray hairs than I do today.

Michelle says I’ve earned them, which is the nicest possible way to say I’m getting older.

In fact, I’m turning 51 in a couple weeks, and to celebrate I’m heading home to Chicago for a get-together at my house.

I’d love for you to be one of my guests.

Donate $3 or whatever you can to support the campaign, and you’ll be automatically entered to join me at home in Chicago — flight and hotel covered for you and a guest of your choice.

Chicago is where I fell in love with my wife and where our daughters were born. It’s where decades ago I first started as a community organizer and where, six years ago, I first talked with Michelle about the possibility of running for president.

I’m looking forward to spending a few hours celebrating there before it’s all systems go for the final weeks of the election.

Should be fun.

Thanks for all your support so far. If you can, enter today for a chance to join me and some friends at my house in Chicago, and I can thank you in person:

Hope to see you soon,

Barack

About alongloudsigh

Who am I? Just an average woman living an average life. There are many labels I would use to define myself: mom, wife, daughter, student, educator, American, etc. I have no professional experience nor am I claiming to be a writer. Sometimes I am brushing up on some skills I will need when I return to academia, and sometimes I am just expressing my views. Lately I seem to be fixated on politics, but I believe that it is mostly due to my utter disbelief and disgust for what is happening in America.
