What some, such as the OP have failed or chosen not to mention, is that the President has nothing to do with this, to suggest otherwise is merely dishonest at best.
NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING would please the Democrats more, than to have Sarah Palin as their GOP opponent.

A president asking for money to go against a book author?
I'll have to admit Obama needs to consider his priorities better. This is silly. her opinion is just, her opinion. She's not a politician, she's just promoting her book.

Right now, Sarah Palin is on a highly publicized, nationwide book tour, attacking President Obama and his plan for health reform at every turn.
It's dangerous. Remember, this is the person who coined the term "Death Panels" -- and opened the flood gates for months of false attacks by special interests and partisan extremists.
Whatever lie comes next will be widely covered by the media, then constantly echoed by right-wing attack groups and others who are trying to defeat reform.
As we approach the final sprint on health reform, we can't afford more deception and delay. We need to be ready for anything -- and have the resources to respond with ads, events, and calls to Congress when the attacks come.
So we're setting a big goal: $500,000 in the next week to help push back against Sarah Palin and her allies. Please chip in $5 or more to help reach our goal.
Earlier this month, Palin publicly said that she hopes health reform will be "dead on arrival." And since then, she's been working fiercely toward that goal.
On Tuesday, Palin went on Rush Limbaugh's radio show where she outrageously -- and falsely -- suggested that Americans could "face jail time as punishment" if they don't buy insurance.
Palin has many more interviews scheduled on Hannity and other conservative shows in the next few weeks, with more platforms to go after the President. As soon as she does, the rest of our opponents will likely parrot those attacks.
We need to be prepared. And we're counting on you help. Can you chip in $5 or more?

He's the President! Why does he need "donations" to fight "lies"? All he's got to do is call a press conference and dismiss the lies. He's got the media at his beck and call. It is part of their job to report what he says.
Better yet! Why doesn't he take her out for a coffee or a cold beer and discuss it with her! I hear that is the diplomatic way to handle those kinds of situations.

Obama fears Palin for one reason... The very cult of personality that got his inexperienced rearend elected is going to do the same for SP
