How not to get Barack Obama’s attention

Earlier today, a group of protesters in San Francisco disrupted President Obama’s $35,800-a-plate fundraiser — $5,000 goes directly to his reelection campaign, the rest to the DNC — over the conditions in which alleged WikiLeaks whistleblower Bradley Manning is being held. Great! It’s reassuring to know even good little San Francisco limousine liberals can be bothered to do something more significant to affect change than affixing an Obama-Biden sticker to their Audi.

Except . . . well, not be a downer or anything, but, um — remind me — why again should a politician like Obama give a shit about your cause when, before even stating your reason for protest, you declare:

Dear Mr. President, we honor you today sir
Each of us brought you $5,000
It takes a lot of Benjamins to run a campaign
I paid my dues, where’s our change?
We’ll vote for you in 2012, yes that’s true
Look at the Republicans – what else can we do

Look, liberals: dude’s a politician. He doesn’t care about you. I can’t stress this enough: Barack Obama is not your friend. If killing your grandma by running her over with the family station wagon was a viable path to reelection, the fucker would do it — and back up over her just to make sure she was dead. He’d probably file an insurance claim too.

I don’t have all the answers, but one thing I do know: if you want to get sociopaths like Barack Obama to pay attention to your concerns, giving him wads of cash and professing your willingness to vote for him no matter what he does is probably not the best way to go about it.
