Obama Still Campaigning As Campaign Manager Sends Fiscal Cliff Email

It seems that the Obama campaign is not done campaigning for the year, despite re-election. Over the weekend Barack Obama had his deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter send out a campaign email that practically begs them to tell their story of how a tax increase of $2,000 would hurt them should the fiscal cliff talks fail.

Here's the text of the campaign letter:

Friend --

I hope you had a lovely holiday and all is well. I'm writing with a quick update on the "fiscal cliff" and how you can get involved.

Right now, President Obama is asking you to think about what $2,000 a year means to you and your family -- because Congress needs to hear it.

The Senate has passed a bill that stops taxes from going up for 98 percent of American families, and asks those who can afford it to pay a little more. If the House follows suit, President Obama is ready to sign it as soon as it hits his desk.

If they fail to do so, a typical middle-class family of four will see their taxes go up by $2,000 in just a few short weeks.

President Obama is asking Congress to do the right thing and act before the New Year, but he needs our help. We've got a good track record here: When we make our voices heard and urge Congress to take action -- whether it's about health care, student loans, Wall Street reform, or "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" -- they listen.

Watch this new video about the President's tax plan, and take a moment to share your story: What does $2,000 a year mean to you and your family?

(Here's the video linked in the email)

For more than 19 months, President Obama campaigned on the idea that if we're going to be successful, every American has to do their part and pay their fair share.

A centerpiece of his platform, and the campaign you built, was that income taxes should not go up on the middle class -- that the responsible way to pay down the deficit, while investing in education, job training, research, and science, is to ask the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more.

None of this is a surprise to anyone in Washington. They heard the same arguments we did -- they paid attention to the campaign, and then they saw a clear majority of voters deliver a verdict on November 6th.

If and when the House passes this bill, 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses will not see a tax increase.

Your story matters and Congress needs to hear it.

Think about what $2,000 a year can do for you, or your family, or someone you know, and submit it here:


Thanks for speaking out. More soon,


Stephanie Cutter
Deputy Campaign Manager
Obama for America

P.S. -- We've got to make our voices heard in this debate. Share what $2,000 means to you, and then ask your friends and family to do the same.

We recall during the campaign how Ms. Cutter was one of Obama's biggest liars during the campaign, which garnered her to be nicknamed "Cutterocchio" by columnist Michelle Malkin. Now it seems that she and Obama will "hit the campaign trail" again, only this time to push taxmageddon agenda.

    Have we ever had a more inept and incompetent president than Obama? Our country is sinking and he's still in campaign mode, probably because that's about all he's good at, certainly doesn't have any leadership skills.

  • R.Young

    The only reason the Great Black Father is doing this is that when he guts the "Law" which clearly states that a person can not be re-elected to a third term as President, his Re-Election Campagin will be in full Swing! The Great Black Father, President for Life of the United States?

  • regulus30

    always a campaign "COMMUNITY ORGANIZER";;;;;;NEVER a President;; what a piece of pond scum America has elected to destroy it..........please make natural disaster happen in his vicinity soon.

    Obama loves campaigning!!! He hasn't stopped campaigning since at least 2008. He won't stop campaigning - ever!! We will have to watch him talking out of his a _ _ everyday for the next 4 years, getting more and more arrogant, acting more and more like a rock star. This won't be over soon enough.

    And worse yet, I feel like everything I own including my retirement and entire future is under siege.

    He is such an embarrassment it is enough to make a grown man weep for this nation.

    Obama's scam is the same as FDR's, confuse income with wealth and raise taxes on the "rich" in the name of fairness, only problem, Obama's super wealthy elite puppet masters don't have "income" in the sense of normal people and pay nothing in terms of how long they have to work to pay them. The tax burden of the "rich" is born by the poor as the taxes trickle down through the system and raise the cost of living.

    The one percent class Obama focuses the wrath of the lower classes on are the job producers. The last thing Obama wants is for them to be able to get good jobs. Democrats need the poor to maintain their power. Most Democrats useful idiots for their handlers and a few are downright evil. I don't know for sure which Obama is but we're going to find out if he takes the US over the cliff.

    in retrospect, i don't know why i thought he would stop campaigning after the election.

    • 75andkickin

      He had no intention of stopping his campaigning. According to one news report I read today, He is seriously planning to run for a third term. When do you suppose he'll declare himself dictator and then a third term run will be as much a sham as Sadaam Hussein's elections were? Same politics, different face.

      Wouldn't put it past him. Democrats don't believe in limited government, why should they respect the Presidential term limit. Obama can simply declare it un-constitutional and run again. Democrats didn't think Clinton's perjury was a high enough crime to convict, they don't give a dam about Obama's forged certificates, don't care to enforce voting laws and not only believe it's OK to kill unborn children but want to force everyone to pay for the slaughter.

    "If and when the House passes this bill, 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses will not see a tax increase." This is an out-right lie! If Obama gets what he wants, and what the head campaign liar Ms Cutter says Americans should ask for, then at least 70% of small businesses will get their taxes raised, and lay-off people to pay for the tax increase. If everyone should pay their fair share of income taxes, as Obama and Ms Cutter keep proclaiming, then is it fair for 50% of Americans to pay no income taxes, and most of those get back an earned income tax rebate, even though they haven't paid any taxes for many years? Is it fair for 10% of income tax payers to pay 70% of all tax revenue kept by the government, and the 40% between the 50% who pay no income tax, and the 10% who pay 70% of all income tax revenue kept by the government, pay the remaining 30% of all tax revenue kept by the government? I really don't think what Obama and Ms Cutter is calling a fair share, is not the description of an American fair share, but rather the old USSR's description of a fair share. 10% of people paying 70% of all taxes, 40% of people paying 30% of all taxes, and 50% of people paying no taxes, yeah, right, that sounds fair to me, 'NOT'.

      If Obama gets his way, "the recovery" paid for by borrowing against our children's future is going to falter, our credit rating will fall and send us back into recession. Of course if the Roots of his Rage is correct, that's his subconscious goal.

    • Randy131

      Why do you think Obama's goal is subonscious? It looks to be too obvious for subconscious! But then again, if so, the 'Manchurian Candidate' book would no longer be considered 'Fiction'.

    • faithandhonor

      This is pure demagoguery. Those of us in the private sector know that when you have a problem, the first and most important task is to IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM, in its origins, scope, severity, etc., and then PROPOSE A SOLUTION that SOLVES THE PROBLEM.

      Obama never does this. He just demagogues the issue to death. He will never change, because for him, the issue is NOT "solving the problem", it's using the political system to aggregate and consolidate POWER. And the tax code is a primary instrument for him to do this, as it has for every venal master politician down the ages.

    • Randy131

      His luxorious living makes him a great 'King', but as the American people suffer financially, losing jobs and homes, doesn't make Obama a very good empathetic leader. But he definately knows how to play the 'Blame Game', and is helped tremendously by our pathetically liberal media, to the detriment of solutional policies that his opposition wants to implement in order to save the country and people's lives and investment in a self-reliant and independent way of life. But Obama's goals are obvious dependency of the people, to keep himself and the socialistic and communistic Democratic Party in power, as the 'King' lives luxoriously. In all my life, I've never seen a President live so oppulently, while the American people suffer so. Shows a definate lack of conscious and empathy.

  • EricHaulenbeek

    What a crap president this guy is. He doesn't understand what he's supposed to do now so he drops back into campaign mode. This clown is a real lightweight!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Hart/1718962778 John Hart

      I think you've hit the nail, Obama is an amateur out of his league, a puppet of power he fails to see. He's a fool on steroids leading US down a dark path, thinking he see's the light. The population control and eugenics movement are pulling his strings, beyond that he doesn't have a clue what he's doing.
