Obama is reaching into his successful campaign bag of tricks to raise $$ for his 2012 re-election campaign. Prior to the 2008 election, I received emails with the invitation to dine with the President, kinda like a sweepstakes deal where you donate $5, and you'd be entered for a for a chance to win. Well, apparently it worked out quite well, because the President is again offering a chance to win his presence along with dinner for a $5 donation (at least, the price didn't go up!). So, it appears that Obama is reaching out to the same people that got him elected, "the little people," (myself included), except I'm not sure he's acted in their best interests since he's been in office~future polls will dictate that answer. This is the 1st email I received, and it was already followed up by a 2nd email two days later. I have no doubt, they'll be many more...
