Of course, Obama's fundraising arm, Organizing For Action, was hoping to profit from Obama's 55th birthday on August 4th.
Here's the email:
The progress we've fought for over the last eight years wasn't won easily and it's been even harder to protect -- you know that.
Together we've organized like hell to hand off a better America to the next generation. And no one takes our hard work to heart more than President Obama.
That's why today, on the President's 55th birthday, I want to make sure you get your name on OFA's birthday card before it's too late.
Sign the card celebrating the Organizer-in-Chief himself.
Seriously -- the President loves OFA supporters. So let's celebrate a little, and then get back to fighting for more big wins.
Add your name to the card:
Organizing for Action
Anyone on Obama's email list would receive this. Typical email stuff, for the most part.
I wonder, however, if some Obama supporters questioned the appropriateness of the email's subject line:
"55 is a BFD - sign the card"BFD?
How about displaying just a little bit of dignity?
Too much to ask.
