I got an email from Barack Obama himself. - December 21st 2011, 07:28 PM

"Friend --

Early this morning, the last of our troops left Iraq.

As we honor and reflect on the sacrifices that millions of men and women made for this war, I wanted to make sure you heard the news.

Bringing this war to a responsible end was a cause that sparked many Americans to get involved in the political process for the first time. Today's outcome is a reminder that we all have a stake in our country's future, and a say in the direction we choose.

Thank you.

Barack"

I have no idea why I got this
(For the same people who think I actually eat babies, no I don't think I got an email from Barack Obama himself. Learn sarcasm because I'm tired of putting up disclaimers )



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Don't get me wrong, I'm so excited to hear that the troops have been removed from Iraq and are going to be coming home to safety! But, the part I quoted is my FAVORITE part of your post. Hahah. People who don't understand the subtleties of sarcasm amuse me to no end. Were there really people that thought you were a baby-eating cannibal?! LOL.

Yes. Much to my amusement, there have been complaints about my username. Of course I've only found out right after I changed it back to my original name, TheBabyEater, so the noobs will have to wait another 6 months before I can change it. Poor Robs and Mods will have to put up with their complaints of my offensive username for awhile I guess

Oh my. I really don't know what to say to that. Mind you, a while back someone thought my username meant I was claiming to be a doctor - that took some getting my head around...

Anyway, I'm going to guess that it's probably something like your e-mail being on a (probably completely unrelated) mailing list that it's picking up from, or else something on Facebook or the like. Does seem a bit weird though.

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.

I probably got on the list from www.change.org petitions. It hasn't been the first time I've absent-mindedly signed a petition, given my email, and they're literally sent it to whoever. I guess this time it was Barack Obama.



Take me seriously.

Just looks like they're trying to stir up some 2008-era feelings for Obama by sending out a "Look what I did" email to anyone who supported him in the past.

Well, that explains why I didn't get an email from Obama. I went Republican for the 2008 elections.

WHAT? I GOT THAT EMAIL TOO! I thought Obama was just my friend who sent me emails. I guess we're not as close afterall. Hahaha. Are you a registered democrat? I think that's why I got mine. I don't know.

If people are offended by your username, they need to suck it up. It's awesome.

I don't think I ever registered to be a democrat? Maybe I did when I registered to vote, though I doubt it. I'd register to be an independent
