If last night’s GOP debate made you sad Obama is leaving, Dems have a balm for you

According to TimeandDate’s official countdown, Barack Obama will be leaving office in 531 days. (And 15 hours, 45 minutes, and 24 seconds, but who’s counting.) It is anything but clear at this point who his successor will be, but the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the official arm of House Democrats, is already feeling wistful.

So much so that after last night’s primetime GOP debate, the DCCC sent out an email that was received by our friends at WeaselZippers. Here is the text:

That was nuts. I mean… Wow. If you’re feeling REALLY thankful that Obama is our President right now — (not those 10 fools) take a free sticker:

This is something along the lines of a “miss him yet?” campaign, only front-loaded.

Whatever your opinion of the debates and debaters might be, it’s interesting to see that the House Democratic caucus is willing to stoop to the level of name-calling. Then again, the apple doesn’t fall from the tree. The man whose departure they are lamenting in advance has variously called members of the opposition party “enemies” and most recently accused them of making common cause with Iranian hardliners who have chanted Death to America.

For those who missed the debate, the transcript is here. For those who didn’t receive the DCCC email but for some reason want a sticker, once can be obtained here.
