Romney Victory, Inc. Sends Out Invites

The crazy stuff that gets stuck in our spam filter! In case any of you didn’t receive your invitation to this prestigious June 29 event, here is the text of the email (sent 5/29 from Kelley McGarvey, Executive Assistant to the Chairman at Cello Pack Corporation)  announcing it:

Dear Friend:

 I hope that this communication finds you and your family doing well.  We write you today as Co-Chairs of the Romney for President Committee for Upstate New York and as supporters of the American Dream.

 Our way of life, American exceptionalism, entrepreneurship, jobs and more are under attack from the far left.  The current Administration seems to believe that the European model is best for America.  We can all see how it is working there!

Are there things that we can do to improve our historic free enterprise system — absolutely!

Are there ways in which the Republican Party can learn and grow to become better supporters of a bright future for all Americans — you bet!

Is it time for each and every one of us to stand up, be counted, and help our presumptive nominee to get his message of change and the American Dream — out to all Americans — yes it is!

 With these thoughts in mind we have assembled a strong committee of volunteers to work with us to raise money for Governor Mitt Romney who is running for President of the United States!

 We are honored that Mitt Romney has agreed to come to Buffalo on Friday, June 29, 2012 as his only scheduled upstate New York stop between now and the election.  Attached are invitations to the general event and the more private dinner for those who so which to participate.

 We hope that you will:

 Contribute to the campaign for America’s future by giving as much as you can.

Attend at least one of these events and meet Mitt Romney in person.
 
For those of you that have already committed to participate through one of the Committee members, we thank you and look forward to seeing you on the 29th.  For those of you who have not yet committed please respond today by filling out the attached donation form and sending it to the email or mailing address given.

 Thank you for your time and your commitment!

 All the best,

 

Ambassador Anthony Gioia (Ret)                                        Mark E. Hamister

Upstate New York Chair                                                         Western New York Chair

What the hell is “American exceptionalism“? It’s a term first used by Soviet dictatator Joseph Stalin, silly.

Click here to download your invitation to the cocktail reception at the Buffalo Historical Society. $2,500 per person, $5,000 per couple. But why not upgrade to the VIP photo reception for $5,000 per person, and get a picture taken of yourself with Mitt Romney, and his hair?

Tip: You might want to take it easy on the booze—I don’t think Mormons drink much. And, you want to be at the top of your game when the party moves over to Anthony Gioia’s place at 55 Meadow Road for the photo reception and dinner over there. Admission to that one is a flat-rate $10,000 per person. No exceptions. Click here for the invite to that portion of the evening.

Gonna be a wild one.

    Mitt Romney’s Magic Mormon Underwear protects him from the
    evils of the world including socialism, illegal immigrants, homosexuals and
    taxes on his inherited wealth.  Can these
    sacred garments also make it rain down enough cash for a victory in this race
    since well over 90% of public offices are bought in our country by Big Money?  Drop by to discuss these mysterious tighty whities
    and the role of money in politics at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/05/mitt-romneys-magic-mormon-underwear.html
