Obama Makes Plea to Donors
No surprise here that it looks like the comments are reflecting that general Joe's and Jane's aren't really feeling giving money during economic hardship. It's time to get more creative beyond the typical phone calls and heavy-in-words emails that come 1-2 times per day.

Now, 3.5 years later, your net worth is approximately $10 million and you sit there and beg for more money. … All of you 'disillusioned' Obama 2008 folks need to go to barackobama.com and give $5 at least. You think Romney cares one whit about you? … Aren't federal employees forbidden to lobby from federal property?... There is a dedicated fundraising phone fool.
It's almost O-ver. … President Panic sitting on Air Force One begging for dollars on a "special telephone line" or whatever - still he's embarrassing himself and the office of the president, yikes. … It’s just politics.
