The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee rolled out its new promotional sticker and instantly got roasted on social media.
The committee not only released a new “I Miss Obama” sticker, it then promoted it with a GIF featuring “live footage” of the former president and vice president.

Clicking the link in the tweet leads to a contribution page where a $3 donation gets you a free sticker declaring “I Miss Obama.”
“Show off your President Obama nostalgia today!” the website declares.

The National Republican Congressional Committee took the opportunity to mock Democrats on their loss in the Kansas special election earlier in the week.
So that’s where all that money went instead of Kansas…
On stickers. https://t.co/COowFNbBP7

@dccc You put more work into this than you did for the Kansas 4th Congressional race. ?

@dccc You have impeccably bad timing.

@dccc you just barely lost a house seat in a special election this week and you haven’t said a damn thing about it

The DCCC has set its sights on next week’s special election in Georgia’s 6th district, releasing an anti-Trump radio ad featuring Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson.
Twitter users, and members of their own Party, promptly bashed the DCCC for its “goofy” Obama tweet, giving Democrats a scathing reminder that they need to get their minds out of the past if they want to survive.

@dccc You guys are a pathetic excuse for an opposition party. Thanks for nothing. This is really your idea of trying to win?

@dccc seriously? That’s really bad photo editing.

@dccc Maybe hire an actual comedian. Or a competent campaign strategist.

@dccc I’m no your side, but what you’re trying to do and what’s at stake is way to serious for this goofy bullshit.

@dccc Poorly-made memes of a marginally popular president will surely combat the Democrats’ image of being woefully out-of-touch & incompetent.

@dccc Please stop giving the GOP more ammunition against us in 2018. This is terrible and really accentuates our shitty messaging strategy.

@dccc B/c nothing says we have no plan or clue about the future like wistfully remembering 90 days ago.

@dccc So you were making Obama stickers instead of being on the ground in Kansas! Stupid things made us the minority. FOCUS!
