They’re inserting themselves into people’s own private celebrations – as though folks are thinking about the November election as they gear up for the biggest day of their lives. How conceited is that?

[Honestly when I first saw this Friday I thought much the same thing. Seriously who would want to donate gifts from friends and family on the most important day of their lives to support a guy who plays more golf than anyone? To support a man you’re already supporting his vacations through
donations given at gun point taxes. Why would anyone want to donate more to a man who couldn’t save money and honestly doesn’t care about you, your family, or your future? If he’s so desperate for cash, maybe he should be frugal with how he spends it.
I know there’s plenty of people out there who actually would think this is a good idea. Honestly I think it is a clue that there is something wrong in your relationship on a deep fundamental level. Miguel said it best on that one:
You know there will be fight “We could had the espresso machine but noooo.. Donate to Obama you said. My mother was right!
Your wedding day is about you and your family (that is growing). It is not about some political hack trying to get reelected. Frankly any political hack that would attempt to interject himself into what really is probably the most important day of your life, is a narcissist of such degree one should be very fearful.
If you’re friends tell you to donate to a political fund in lieu of gifts for their wedding, don’t bother going. Obviously when it comes to their relationship their priorities are ass backwards. -B]
