A Texas man is literally dying to defeat Obama, trying to tip the tables against Barack Obama in the 2012 election, though he died last month from a terminal illness. Jim Harrison, who died February 27 at the age of 68, used his obituary to call for Obama’s defeat, according to Fox News. The obituary reads, “In lieu of flowers, at Jim’s request, please make a donation to anyone running against Barack Obama.”
In lieu of flowers, at Jim’s request, please make a donation to ANYONE running against Barack Obama” the obituary reads.
Harrison’s stepson John Rundlof said the obituary was “kind of a parting shot.” Though the family has gotten positive and negative feedback, Rundlof said Harrison just wanted to see “change” in Washington. His widow said she supported Harrison’s message. “We saw it. We said, ‘Yes Jim. You’ve got to put it in.’ It was awesome. He’s a staunch Republican and everybody, they remember that obituary when they see it,” Ginger Rundlof told Fox News. Harrison’s not the first to include a message for Obama in his obituary. A Georgia businessman made a nearly identical request in his obituary last fall. These are very dedicated and classy people.
