< Hello, my name is Daniel ___, and I’m calling on behalf of President Obama’s re-election campaign. How are you today?
> I’m OK. I will not be participating in Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign.
I suppose there’s no reason to waste time on pleasantries with me, or even basic civility… after all, I haven’t got any money to contribute.
