Obama taps donor list to raise money for Hurricane Gustav victims

| 2 Comments

Obama e-mail appeal...

xxxx --

Today, the thoughts and prayers of all Americans are with those in the path of Hurricane Gustav -- and many of you are asking what you can do to help.

We do not yet know what the impact of Hurricane Gustav will be, and we hope with all our hearts that the damage will not be as great as it was three years ago.

But we know there will be damage, and there is something you can do right now.

Your financial support will strengthen organizations like the American Red Cross that are evacuating Gulf Coast residents and planning to help communities get back on their feet.

Make a donation to support the American Red Cross today.

At times like this, it is our compassion and resilience that define who we are as a nation.

Please give whatever you can afford, even $10, to make sure the American Red Cross has the resources to help those in the path of this storm:

Thank you for your generosity, and I hope you will join Michelle and me in praying for the safety of those in the path of the storm and the first responders who are doing all they can to ensure the safety of their communities.

Barack

BARACK OBAMA IS ALWAYS JOHNNY ON THE SPOT!
HE WILL MAKE A GREAT PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE WON'T
MAKE A FLY OVER THE SITUATION, HE WILL COME UP
WITH SOLUTIONS TO AMERICA'S PROBLEMS!
HE GENUINELY ROLLS UP HIS SLEEVES AND GETS
INVOLVED, HE DOESN'T WAIT UNTIL THINGS DIE DOWN
TO REACT TO SITUATIONS THAT AMERICANS WANT
ANSWERS TO!
PRAYING FOR THE GULF, HANNAH IS COMING AND IKE!
GREAT JOB BY RAY NAGIN!

BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA WILL BRING A FRESH
AIR SOLUTION TO THE WHITE HOUSE!
I LIKE LAURA BUSH SHE IS A NICE PERSON!
GEORGE BUSH WASN'T PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL, HE
WAS PLACED IN A SITUATION WHERE MENTALLY HE
COULDN'T HANDLE THE POSITION!
NOW HERE COME THE OBAMA'S TWO LAWYERS, SMART,
THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR FELLOW MAN!
A MIGHTY CHANGE IS COMING TO THE WHITE HOUSE!
