    Obama drops $5 dinner raffle to $3 – again

    Obama drops $5 dinner raffle to $3 – again

    I warned you not to pay $5 for the latest Obama dinner raffle, Warning on $5 Obama dinner raffle.  Based on past performance, as the quarterly reporting date approached, Obama would drop the price.

    And sure enough, a reader forwarded me an e-mail with the $3 offer (full e-mail image below)(emphasis in original):

    As chief operating officer of this campaign, I’m the person people come to when they want to spend the  money you’ve donated.

    All the budgets, calculations, and planning lead to a simple “yes” or “no.” Yes, you can buy coffee and clipboards for neighborhood organizers in Ohio. No, you can’t have a fancy computer when a cheaper one does the job. That sort of thing.

    Every team on the campaign has submitted their plans for the rest of this year — opening field offices, registering voters, building technology. And it all costs money.

    I can’t say yes to everything — but what you do right now can help me say yes to more.

    We have a critical fundraising deadline coming up on September 30th.

    Help me say yes by giving $3 or more today.

    Help me say yes to what we need to do to put our plans in motion by donating $3 or more today — you’ll even be automatically entered for a chance to have dinner with President Obama

    Those of you who paid the $5. Well, you’ve been played. Again. Slurpee not included this time.


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    Of course, the best part of His website:
    Legal Compliance

    Check this box to confirm that the following statements are true and accurate:
    I am a United States citizen or a lawfully admitted permanent resident of the United States.

    That’s just not fair.

    Maybe this has been covered before…but I just don’t understand the point of dropping from $5 to $3. I mean…how many people are there who think “$5? No way. Oh, $3…I’m in“.

    I can see going from, say $50 to $20. But how many MORE people can they be attracting with a $2 price drop? I don’t get it.
