(CNN) – After losing the monthly fundraising battle in July for the third straight month, the Obama campaign is rolling out a new money-raising gimmick to encourage its supporters to pony up donations.
In an email sent out on Tuesday, Obama for America announced that future donors to the president’s reelection campaign will be automatically entered into a lottery for the chance to play basketball with current and former NBA and WNBA stars at the rescheduled Obama Classic. The winner will also get a dinner with President Obama and NBA legend Michael Jordan.
I'm in, love to play hoops.
Obama has turned the presidency into a game show. Time to get rid of this bad joke in November.
Please try governing one of these days..............
Really! I'd do a space jam on Jordan.
NBA and WNBA stars didn't do that by themselves so they should ALL be willing to campaign for the US Government.
That is pretty cool...my kids would love it
Democraps are in trouble go figure
Well if this doesn't scream desperation on the part of Obama's campaign, I don't know what does. What next kissing booths with Michelle and the kids? November can't get here fast enough to get rid of this 4 year reality show disaster.
Deperation setimg in Obama, time to make a change.
Oh oh, is that the same Michael Jordan that was delinquent for not paying taxes, county and municipal taxes in North Carolina?????? I hope Jordan is paying taxes or Harry Reid will tell on him.
New 'Obama Classic' fundraising contest:
Play with NBA stars, dine with Michael Jordan
Mr. HOPE & CHANGE
begging for a $3.00 donation to shoot hoops
To the good life on the government plantation !!!
Geez.... even the guy on the left is laughing at that incompetent Obama!!
President Obama is having fun. Just amazing don't hate, donate. Go President Obama
Sounds like fun. My nephew could hold his own (I think). Sure beats standing around snootyville watching the
"elite" try to outdo each other, and Romney trying to keep up.
@ BEND Forward – Obama has turned the presidency into a game show.
Nah, Dubya did that when the SCOTUS elected him the first time, followed closely by his ill-timed "victory" speech on the aircraft carrier. Now Willard opens mouth inserts foot in latest GOBP faux paux overseas. Where do you people get these clowns from ??
I want to see Michael Jordan's tax returns for the last 30 years to make sure he has been paying his fair share. I wouldn't want him or Obama to be accused of hypocrisy.
No LeBron James, please.
Go Mr. President.
Those republicans are selfish and unreliable like Bush. I don't like them. Obama for a second term !
@BEND Forward – .. even the guy on the left is laughing at that incompetent Obama!!
They were really discussing Willard's chances in Nov ! I'd be laughing hard too....
