Might want to try paying supporters to show up.
President Obama’s latest job-creation gimmick is a self-serving one: Obama allies are reportedly paying protesters to stake out Mitt Romney’s rallies. Two Michigan protesters said that they were getting paid to do that arduous work. They’re clearly not unionized – one protester claimed she was getting paid $7.25 per hour, while another man said he was being paid $17 per hour. These same professional protesters had appeared at another Romney rally that same day. Their story was confirmed by an Obama campaign official, but disassociated his own group from those protesters.
Huh. Imagine that! Obama paying people to protest his opponent. Apparently there aren’t people who believe in The One that are willing to do it for free. At least not in this economy. Seems to me Team Obama is taking a page out of the Union book here.
