Real Golfers Don’t Request a “Mulligan” – Revisiting Obama’s Presidential Campaign Playbook Following the Democrat National Convention

Following the Democrat National Convention it’s timely to revisit my August 19, 2012 article “Obama’s Presidential Campaign Playbook”. Here are relevant presidential plays.

However, before that re-visitation, let’s look at the golfing definition of a “mulligan”: “most simply put, is a ‘do-over.’ ‘Hit a bad shot? Take a mulligan and replay that stroke’. So as you’ve probably guessed, a mulligan is never ‘legal’ under the Rules of Golf.”

More about a “mulligan” later after revisiting Obama’s presidential campaign playbook.

Obama Campaign Seeks To Guilt Supporters Into Donating

In a shameless attempt to guilt Texas resident’s into donating to President Obama’s campaign sent out the email below.

Friend –

Here’s something you don’t have in common with 45,829 other supporters of this movement who tell us they live in Texas.

That many of your neighbors have decided to own a piece of this campaign by making a donation of whatever they could afford. For some, that meant just $5. For others, it meant $100 or more. But each had their own personal reason for giving.

Our records show that you aren’t one of the 45,829 people in your state who have stepped up for 2012. Now’s your chance to change that.
