If you give a lot of money to Mitt Romney’s campaign, Obama may mention you in one of his speeches. This is from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
McConnell told me that large donors to the Romney campaign are near the top of the President’s enemies list. The Obama campaign attacked eight of those contributors on its web site, accusing them of having “less-than-reputable records,” of “betting against America,” and worse. The charges are unfounded but the message is clear: contribute to Mitt Romney and the President will put your name on a virtual “Wanted” poster.
Think of what that kind of publicity is worth. I could build an entire direct-marketing campaign around that.
“President Obama has named me as betting against America. He’s wrong. This is a strong nation. It always recovers from every calamity. Even Obama.”
“I was tarred and feathered by Obama: The best endorsement in America today.”
“Obama says I’m less than reputable. That means I donated to Mitt Romney.”
The nation is divided. This means that there are at least 20% who really do not like Obama. That is a very large potential mailing list. Any copywriter worth his salt could convert that opposition into business opportunities for anyone lucky enough to get named as less than reputable by Obama.
I wish I could get on his public hit list by donating to Ron Paul. But that train has left the station. A pity.
