Waking up this morning, I had a ton of e-mail in my inbox, but one really stood out. It was a fundraising e-mail for Barack Obama. Yes, even after his dismal debate performance against Mitt Romney, Obama was back to fundraising. But his e-mail message was one of the strangest I've seen.
First, let's start with the subject line. Again... this was an e-mail from Barack Obama's campaign. Supposedly, these are not a bunch of amateurs. Yet the subject line was simply: Hey. That's it. Just "Hey." They might have well just said Yo!
Then, we have the e-mail itself. Here is the entire message:
I hope I made you proud out there explaining the vision we share for this country.
Now we need to go win this election -- the most important thing that will happen tonight is what you do (or don't do) to help in the little time we have left:
His whole debate review is one sentence? I guess the brevity speaks louder than words. If anyone was proud of that performance, I guess they WOULD be likely candidates to still give him money.
Then, Obama talks about "the most important thing," which is not the debate, but giving Obama money. That's the most important thing about last night? Maybe in Barack Obama's eyes. In the eyes of most Americans, I'm sure the most important thing was that the president of the United States can't defend his policies and showed that he is completely out of touch.
What do you think? It sure seems like an odd e-mail to send following a complete debacle at the debate. Oh well... at least he considers me a friend.
