Bad news: The Obama bridal registry not as popular as you’d imagine

posted at 11:21 am on July 16, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

It’s summer, so we’re right in the middle of wedding season, where brides schedule their big day when the weather will be most likely to cooperate.  There is so much to do — planning the food, the reception venue, how to keep fueding relations separated by the seating chart — that a whole industry has evolved to take some of the burden off of the happy harried couple.  A traditional industry helps to manage gifts; brides register at a particular outlet (or more than one these days) and compile a list of items that they want, in order to keep from having to answer the same question on 200 phone calls, and to keep from getting five toaster ovens.  (That’s a true story from my wedding, by the way, because our choice for bridal registry kept forgetting to take items off the list.)

Imagine, then, how happy brides must have been to have found yet another option to increase their convenience!  A month ago, the Barack Obama campaign offered to make it even easier for those heading to the altar by, er, just taking their gifts away from them:

Oddly, the New York Post reports today that brides and grooms haven’t exactly rushed to take advantage of this option:

President Obama’s bizarre marriage-theme fund-raising scheme — where he asks couples to request campaign donations from their guests in lieu of wedding gifts — has been a total flop.

The desperate initiative, dubbed “the Event Registry,” is being mocked by event planners and couples — and shows how desperate the Obama campaign is to keep up with GOP contender Mitt Romney’s fund-raising. …

So far, “the Event Registry” has been all but ignored on social-media sites — even though Facebook, Twitter and other networks have been a strong suit for the Obama campaign.

“The number of links and stories about the announcement is very low since the news went live on June 22,” said Meredith Klee, a spokeswoman for the social-media tracking firm Topsy.

Her site’s latest data show 1,137 posts on Twitter about the registry.

And only a few hundred links to the registry have been shared on Facebook — even though Obama has more than 27 million fans on the site, according to Topsy.

What a shock.  Who knew that young couples just starting out in life might really prefer to get gifts that help them put together a new household?  And who knew that most people getting married, regardless of age, want their special day to focus on their new relationship rather than act as a fundraiser for a politician?

It’s too bad that the campaign’s flop took place this late in the year.  They could have tried out grad-party donations, where high school and college students ask Grandma and Grandpa to drop $50 into Team Obama’s pockets rather than their own.  I’d bet that would be every bit as successful as the Obama Bridal Registry, especially considering the jobs prospects for these young men and women in the Obama economy.

If the Obama Event Registry fails to raise enough money, Family-Man-in-Chief will issue an Executive Order, by which all engaged couples planning to marry before November 6, 2012 shall pay a $100 Marriage Fee/Penalty/Tax to Obama for America, whose consitutionality shall be guaranteed by Chief Justice John Roberts.

White folks getting married are racists.

Think what this man has done to this country in just 3 1/2 years.

Food stamp use exploding, Black Unemployment on the rise and over 14%, Budget deficits off the charts, mandates to wretch hold of every part of our lives (family farms, Big Gulps, fracking, you name it). And he and the Mooch Mama have tasteless and crassness like I’ve never seen. They are just a complete embarassment to this nation.

God help us, send President Plague on America back to Chicago.

Depends on whether he’s screwing the bride or the groom or both.

A considerable number of feudal rights were related to the vassal’s marriage, particularly the lord’s right to select a bride for his vassal, but these were almost invariably redeemed by a money payment, or “avail”; and it seems likely that the droit du seigneur amounted, in effect, only to another tax of this sort.

Wallythedog on July 16, 2012 at 12:04 PM

considering the jobs prospects for these young men and women in the Obama economy.

Young people take note:

Democrats “inherited” the economy when they took majority control of the House of Representatives and Senate on January 3, 2007.

The last month that Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and Presidency was December 2006.

In December 2006, the Employment-Population Ratio was 63.4%

If we still had that same Employment-Population Ratio today, over 11.7 Million more people would be employed.

Employment status of the civilian noninstitutional population 16 years and over

Current (June 2012) civilian noninstitutional population aged 16 years and over: 243,155,000
243,155,000 * 63.4% = 154,160,000 jobs
Actual employment: 142,415,000
Difference: 11,745,000 jobs

Got that? Over 11.7 Million jobs are missing from the Democrat economy.

Even if we use the average Employment-Population Ratio from the entire 96 months of the George W. Bush Presidency (62.7%), there are over 10 Million jobs missing from the Democrat economy.

Do you want HOPE?
Do you want CHANGE?

Then vote Republican this November.

Put the party that gave you higher employment back in control of the House, Senate, and Presidency, and watch the Employment-Population Ratio start going back up again.

I’d guess that the bigger problem would be that a large percentage of his voting base is not married and has no plans to be — you will not often hear a conservative utter a statement like “we don’t need a piece of paper to tell us we’re in love,” but you’ll hear it out of “progressives” with depressing regularity.

I’ve never been married, but if my bride-to-be suggested such a thing, I’d immediately remember a promise I had made to join the Peace Corp.

Secondly, if I got a wedding invite that suggested this BS, the happy couple would most definitely be getting a toaster.

0bama evidently did not have the foresight to see that, when you intentionally tank the economy, people have less money to contribute to your campaign.

It’s basic economics, something that he has never understood.

Considering the recent polling, which shows that married people support Mitt Romney over Obama by a wide margin, while singles support Obama by an equal margin, this is no surprise. What I would love to see is someone giving the bride and groom a “human fund” card (a la George Costanza) in lieu of a wedding gift on a show like “Bridezillas,” and watch the fireworks.

I wonder if the bright idea was that there were presumed to be an awful lot of people who support the President but don’t care to make a separate donation so make it easy for them to do so. I could see something like this gaining momentum (i.e. groupthink?) and dignity and decorum (of the Presidency) being ignored or set aside as unimportant (compared to the objective of raising funds and getting Obama reelected).

One might think of this … ploy? … as being somewhat pathetic if the expectation was that it would generate any signficant amount of contributions. I wonder if the idea was that it would be a show of public support for Obama (i.e. as the Best President EVER or something).

That’s why it’s up to us conservatives to get the word out.

Or at least call the liberals racist for not wanting to share their bounty with a black man.

Now, I know that some of you are conservative-thinking out there. You’re thinking what other president have they offered a cut of the wedding-day take? But that makes sense and it’s just not going to fly. What other president who campaigned on nationalizing healthcare did we enthusiastically embrace? Still, we were racists for being just as against the AC(t)A as we were “Hillarycare” (excuse the sexist term).

Thus, not wanting the president to have a cut of your wedding-day take is RACIST!! -> Racist liberals.

Axeman on July 16, 2012 at 5:57 PM

You know, they already had the lottery to get dinner with Obama, and then the lottery to have dinner with Obama and a famous lefty to be named later.

If they really wanted to have a wedding theme, why not a lottery to have your wedding at the white house? 5 bucks and if we pull your name out of the hat, you could be in the Lincoln bedroom for your first night.

Just not alone.

I might be an outlier, but hey if I were being wed this summer, I’d fer sure give every best-wishes gift to the teleprompter reading goofball from Chicago. Probly.

On a realted front, how far are we from the current POTUS pimping his FLOTUS for campaign cash?

Obama, who wants to “invest” in America, doesn’t know how to invest. He can’t tell a peach from a pooch. This wasn’t even a pooch; it was a pooch’s poo!

I wouldn’t even acknowledge an invitation asking for a contribution to any politician, especially Obummer. I wouldn’t attend the event and wouldn’t bother sending a gift.
