This is Team O's answer to trying to win back disaffected working class voters that voted for them back in '08?: Dinner with the President, the First Lady and ... Sarah Jessica Parker...?
It's my honor to invite you to take part in an event I'm hosting at my home with the President and First Lady on June 14th.

Just before Election Day in 2008, I went to an Obama campaign office in New York and called some undecided voters.
I believed then, as I do now, that if we all chipped in and did our part, we would not only make history, but create meaningful change that so many Americans needed.
For me, this election is even more important than 2008.
As a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I need to believe our country can be a place where everyone has a fair shot at success.
This November's election will determine whether we get to keep moving forward, or if we're forced to go back to policies that ask people like my middle-class family in Ohio to carry the burden -- while people like me, who don't need tax breaks, get extra help.
I'm hosting this event on June 14th because there is so much at stake this year, and I want to keep doing what I can.
I hope you'll help me welcome President Obama and the First Lady to New York.
It should be fabulous.

Doubling down on electoral demographic detachment, are we?
Mind you, this salute material and cultural excess was released this past Friday, the same day that miserable jobs report came out, stating that the economy only added 69,000 jobs.
Add the "Thingamajig" and "Polish Death Camps" gaffes to what could've very easily passed for a Romney parody ad, and one wants to wonder if Team O is simply setting some sort of complacency trap for Romney such has been the complete incompetence of the Obama campaign the last 7 days or so.
