Anybody For Some Obama Campaign Merchandise?

A friend tagged me on Facebook this week with some interesting observations about the merchandise President Obama is offering these days on his website, and...while my friend has asked to remain anonymous, his observations were too good not to share. 

On the President's Web site on Friday, you were able to save 10% on merchandise by using this code: 10%TurkeyDay. Call me nit-picky, but the sale--while it was a "Turkey Day" sale--was posted on Friday, missing Thanksgiving by a day. (perhaps it couldn't be called a "Black Friday" sale because the country is in the red so deep) Just sayin'. 

If you take a look at the front page on the merchandise site, you'll notice that 2012 sticker in the header photo is attached to a Ford Focus. Funny, wasn't Ford the only company that didn't take bailout money?

Rhodium ball and glass ornaments are offered, but Christmas ornaments are never mentioned on the, however, he tweeted an advertisement for Christmas ornaments.  (I'm sure, to the disappointment of many constituents) 

A cutting board is offered, but he seems incapable of cutting the least bit of spending. 

Birth certificate mugs that say "Made in the U.S.A." are my friend put it, it's just a tad ostentatious, don't you think?

He has done you a favor and offered one product that showcases the American flag, so if you'd like to own your very own tee with the President against a flag backdrop, see this link

And, if all of these items don't quite suit your fancy, you may follow this link, donate and enter a drawing to have dinner with the President. Watch the video, I think you'll find it quite...interesting.

Excellent post..
Happy Moms realize that the days are long but the years short. It's not that they are impervious to stress, it's that they have learned to lower their expectations and be in the moment when things get difficult. When your toddler is puking all over the house, this is not the time to reorganize the hall closet. A sick day then turns into a time to create sweet memories of hours spent reading and cuddling on the couch.
