I got an e-mail from Michelle Obama yesterday.
Barack’s 51st birthday is coming up.
You’ll be adding David, from Indiana, alongside thousands of other supporters’ names — folks from all 50 states, from all different backgrounds. Together, all those names will be impressive — they’ll show the strength of this campaign and our support for Barack.
And I know he’s going to love it.
Add your name today — and then ask a friend to join you:
These last few months until Election Day won’t be easy — so let’s show Barack we have his back every step of the way.
Well, I couldn’t resist a personal appeal from the First Lady, so I signed, and was immediately hit up for a campaign donation. After I signed, I received another e-mail.
Thanks for signing President Obama’s card. Want to wish him a happy birthday, or good luck in the months ahead, in your own words?
Add a personal note to the card here:
Obama for America
Well, I certainly do want to wish him a happy birthday, so I wrote that I hope he has a very happy birthday, next year in Chicago, or anywhere except the White House.
