Obama Gift Registry: Your Family and Friends Should Pay Their Fair Share

Could Team Obama, with its world-class campaign fundraising prowess, be that hard up for cash so they had to launch this tacky gift registry?
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?
Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
Aside from wedding and birthdays, how would your family feel about Santa visiting the White House rather than your house?

At this writing, there are about 900 comments posted at the registry. Check it out. It's not going well for Team Obama.

Maybe the Obama campaign is falling short of fundraising goals. Per the Wall Street Journal:
The Democrats' official fundraising numbers, released on Wednesday, showed that the $95 million cash-on-hand advantage Obama and the DNC had over the Republicans at the end of April had been cut by two-thirds at the end of May to $33 million. This is in part because the Obama campaign is burning through its war chest so fast and in part because of the impressive $107 million that the Romney campaign and the RNC announced they had on hand at May's end.
