Hattip to Allahpundit at Hot Air. I do not want to hear the meme any longer that Obama has created no jobs in the private sector.
Here is proof to the contrary:
The protesters popping up at Mitt Romney’s rallies throughout Michigan Tuesday look like run-of-the-mill grassroots liberals — they wave signs about “the 99 percent,” they chant about the Republican’s greed, and they describe themselves as a loosely organized coalition of “concerned citizens.”
They’re also getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed…
Neither of the representatives agreed to give their names, but two protesters said they were getting paid to stand outside for the rally, though the wage is unclear: one said she was getting $7.25 per hour, while another man said they were being paid $17 per hour.
Meanwhile, about 50 feet away, another protest had been organized by local Democrats in conjunction with the Obama campaign. A campaign official told BuzzFeed they had nothing to do with the other group — which he said he believed they had been sent by the labor-backed “Good Jobs Now” — and confirmed that they were being paid.
Go here to read the rest. David Axlerod, Obama’s political guru, has always been a master of the black art of astroturfing, using paid agents to give a false impression of a grassroots movement. Bravo! Considering the pig of an economy that Obama has presided over, I hope Obama opens his coffers wide indeed to provide temporary employment for the numerous unemployed, although I also hope that one man in particular joins the ranks of the unemployed come election day.
