Forget Gifts, Donate to My Campaign

The Left is Freaking Out because…

Christmas presents under the treeTeam Gov. Scott Walker (R-Gimme dat money) sent out an email asking people to not give Christmas presents to their children, but instead send donations to his campaign.

Walker’s campaign wrote last week in the email, “Instead of electronics or toys that will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next Holiday Season, help give your children the gift of a Wisconsin that we can all be proud of. Governor Walker is helping Wisconsin move forward to a future where you children and grandchildren can experience…”

But it was Perfectly Fine when the Obama asked people to forgo gifts to give to his Campaign in 2012:  Obama: forget gifts, Donate to my Campaign instead

Give the Gift of an Obama campaign Donation.  The site says,

“Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up? Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift”

No hypocritical outrage  there!

Now we don’t think this tactic is even close to being intelligent, bad optics galore and open for pure ridicule.  But here is where Scott Walker is worse, The right went wild when Obama did it and even so, some political consultant thought it was a good idea and tried it again!

Now do I think a GOP Governor would be a better gift to the children of Wisconsin… you betcha, but lets not be ridiculous.
