Campaigner in chief: White House website displays political #My2K tweets; Update: Twitter feed pushing hard

Ah, the campaigner in chief strikes again. Now, with more tweets.

Hmm. Unprecedented! Here is a screen shot from


The White House official website is owned by the government. Which means, you know, by we, the people. For Obama, it’s just another place to continue his endless campaigning.

What leadership! Once again, the hashtag stops here.

Will conservative taxpayers be featured? Twitter’s Magic 8 Ball says “no.”

And, good luck with this one.

Update: And President Obama’s Twitter feed gets in on the act.

    i have come to the conclussion that those in the white house and those that support them are total morons

    • Imaconservativ1

      Actually, the ones running the game are very smart. Very smart indeed. They have LOTS of people fooled with their Alinsky strategies! They know exactly what they’re doing, and the American people are falling for it.

    #My2K will go toward paying for part of the $2,800.00 Obamacare tax (thanks John).

    “$2,000 is 2 months of daycare??????” Sera from Texas tweeted? Really? $1,000 a month? Really??????? Obama’s twitter nit wits actually posted that tweet and didn’t do the math? Does Sera understand that it is $2,000 for the year? Which means her daycare portion is $167 a month, not $1000 a month. And does she understand she is NOT going to get an extra $2000 a year no matter what odumbo does? She’ll just be keeping what she already has. The $2000 is already figured in to her salary now.

    • TugboatPhil

      I doubt that Sera understands much beyond what Obama tells her.

      That seems to be a really big thing with the left – not checking math. I remember one time the Seattle Times printed a story about how the dams were hurting the fish, and they quoted an old woman saying how she remembered bigger salmon coming up the river when she was just a girl before the dam was built. No editor bothered to do the math and figure out that she was born after the dam was built. What is wrong with these people? I mean, simple addition, subtraction, and occasionally multiplication and division – most of us can do all that by fourth grade!

        should tweet that $2000 will buy diapers for a month or groceries for a week or buy a pair of shoes for one kid… something completely ludicrous and see what happens.

        • Marcy Cook

          If someone does that obama will make them a Cabinet member, or head of the business committee.

        • Lady 12

          You should! That would be funny!

        Not if they went to the Little Red Schoolhouse and got their participation award.

    • EEKman

      Uh, If you live in a city and not the middle of nowheresville, then that is what it costs. 1000 a month is cheap. Many have 2 year waiting lists and the cost can be even more. 1500-2000 a month is not unusual.

      Go free market.

  • Shaun Deegan

    His posting of the total number of #my2k hashtags tweeted as a declaration of some sort of moral victory is absurd. Half or more of those were likely conservatives mocking his fiscal stupidity

  • orringtonmom (D)

    if you are paying $1000 a month for daycare, you are doing something wrong. i am a SAHM (unlike Sera i’m not “allowed” to work outside the home… seriously wtf?). after the holidays this might change and i’ll need daycare for before bus pickup and after bus drop off. if it is more than i bring home, guess who gets to still be a SAHM?

    maybe she gets her daycare where ‘dear mom’ chick gets her birth control.

    • EEKman

      I guess you don’t live in a city. 1000$ a month is cheap.

      • orringtonmom (D)

        no, i don’t. and that’s still insane.

        • EEKman

          Thats assuming you can find one. Some of the 1500$ per month day care around me have a 2 year waiting list.

          • TexSizzle

            Union wages, I presume.

          • Marcy Cook

            Elite daycare programs.

      • Marcy Cook

        I live in New York City and no one is paying $1000 a month for daycare unless they are rich and the kid is going to an elite program. In that case they don’t need their My2K. In fact someone in that bracket is going to be PAYING for someone else’s daycare.

  • Cyrena

    Just wondering who wants to end tax cuts to the middle class. I’m pretty sure the answer is neither party. So what is the point of all the #My2K? Distracting us from other issues, I’m sure.

    • Finrod Felagund

      It’s all distraction. Obama is like a bad magician, look at what he isn’t trying to focus your attention on and you’ll figure it out everytime.

    • SpinMeNot

      Well, on top of the distraction issue raised by someone else — since when is keeping tax rates at their current level a tax cut?

      The left has control of the dialog and is twisting the language to create an emotive responsive. We have to get battlefield superiority with regard to messaging if we have any hope of turning this thing around. We are being flanked, its time to start with fire-and-maneuver.

  • Lisa Dean

    #my2k will go toward helping support my FSA account since Obamacare cut it down from $5k to $2,500.

    #My2K will buy four ounces of weed.

  • lainer51

    again, all the tweets somehow spin around to ME paying for someone else’s day care, cataract surgery, kid’s college education, mortgage, prescription…. if that isn’t socialism, please explain to me what it is?

    Leadership? I thought all we had at the WH was leadershit.
