Do you have $5? Go, dine with Obama

How about a dinner with U.S. President Barack Obama? It is possible. You can make it if you have $5 to contribute to this presidential campaign.

“We rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford — and I want to spend time with a few of you,” Obama is himself appealing to you.

Actually, Obama has simplified things for you to dine with him which would have cost you upto $30,000 earlier. But his 2012 re-election campaign just announced it will have a much smaller asking price now – just $5 for a meal.

Obama even sent mails to raise funds for his repeat bid to the White House, saying anyone who donates at least $5 is automatically placed into a lottery for a dinner with him.

Four donors will get to attend the dinner, which does not yet have a date or a location.

“We’ll pay for your flight and the dinner — all you need to bring is your story and your ideas about how we can continue to make this a better country for all Americans,” Obama wrote in his appeal.

So are you his supporter? “This won’t be a formal affair. It’s the kind of casual meal among friends that I don’t get to have as often as I’d like anymore, so I hope you’ll consider joining me.”

Here is what Obama wrote:

Friend —

I’ve set aside time for four supporters like you to join me for dinner.

Most campaigns fill their dinner guest lists primarily with Washington lobbyists and special interests.

We didn’t get here doing that, and we’re not going to start now. We’re running a different kind of campaign. We don’t take money from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PACs — we never have, and we never will.

We rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford — and I want to spend time with a few of you.

So if you make a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of the four supporters to sit down with me for dinner. Please donate $5 or more today:

We’ll pay for your flight and the dinner — all you need to bring is your story and your ideas about how we can continue to make this a better country for all Americans.

This won’t be a formal affair. It’s the kind of casual meal among friends that I don’t get to have as often as I’d like anymore, so I hope you’ll consider joining me.

But I’m not asking you to donate today just so you’ll be entered for a chance to meet me. I’m asking you to say you believe in the kind of politics that gives people like you a seat at the table — whether it’s the dinner table with me or the table where decisions are made about what kind of country we want to be.

It starts with a gift of whatever you can afford.

Please make a donation of $5 or more today, and we’ll throw your name in the hat for the upcoming dinner:

I’ve said before that I want people like you to shape this campaign from the very beginning — and this is a chance for four people to share their ideas directly with me.

Hope to see you soon,

Barack
