They won the campaign handily and even had $14.2 million to spare, but the Obama-Biden campaign is still raising money, this time off the president's comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Connecticut.

In email from chief campaign advisor David Axelrod that urges supporters to watch President Obama's moving address to the community of Newtown, Conn., there are two links that open a page with a video player featuring the president's speech and two donate buttons asking for $15-$1,000 for his campaign.

"The next chapter begins today. Stand with President Obama for the next four years," headlines the donation page.

While he links to the donation pages in his email, Axelrod did not mention donations with his words. Instead, he expresses the horror the nation feels about the shootings. "Our hearts broke on Friday as we learned of the tragic and senseless deaths of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut," he wrote. "As we reflect on the lives lost last week, we must also, as the president urged, consider how each of us can play a part in making our country worthy of the memory of those little children."

But above and below a picture of Obama giving his speech are two links to the donation and video player page. One reads, "Watch this speech." The other reads " http://my.barackobama.com/Newton" ;. Clicking the picture also directs supporters to the video player and donation page.

Obama critic and blogger Jeryl Bier wrote, "Not one, but two buttons - two opportunities to donate to the Obama campaign. Not to the Red Cross, or to a memorial fund for the children and adults killed in Newtown. How hard would it have been to shift the focus, disable the buttons, for just one email, just one blog post? But the show must go on."

Obama is never one to "let a crisis go to waste." He will stop at nothing to disarm the American people individually with firearms or by reducing nuclear stockpiles and killing the Space Program in a manner than as set Space Research back at least a decade.

Obama believes that "White folks greed drives a world in need" so the more he hurts this country the more he helps his relatives and kinfolk in Kenya and Indonesia.

Disgusting, since I just read that a portion of the contributions to Organizing for America will be going toward Democratic gubernatorial election/re-election committees. Never let a crisis go to waste, indeed!

So, you're upset that the President's campaign committee is sending e-mails to "supporters" and asking for campaign contributions, and there happens to be a link to his speech from last Friday?

I would assume that you aren't one of the "supporters" who received the e-mail. Heck, I voted for him, and I don't get them, because I'm not on the list.

I would assume that the people who received that e-mail previously took some affirmative action to get on the mailing list, and likely donated money to his campaign before.

Here's what you can do if you're feeling left out. Go here:

I'm sure they'll take your money. And you won't have to listen to Obama.

A lame, yet predictable defense of the clowns who surround your messiah.
Smart people in power surround themselves with smart people. That's never been the case in this administration.

It takes a lot of moxie to allow vets to some home with PTSD that you don't want to properly treat, and then turn around and use the Sandy Hook incident to collect campaign contributions. Moxie, of course, is not my word of choice.

Only things I would donate to Obama or any democrat are a rope with a noose already tied and a rickety stool.

If Obama were on fire I wouldn't pi$$ on him to put him out
