I guess Michelle Obama wasn’t kidding when she declared that, “Barack Obama will require you to work” and “demand” that “you move out of your comfort zone…”
Only now it turns out that her hubby will be making making such demands before he’s been elected president.
The Rocky Mountain News reports:
Some of those hoping to wrangle a seat for Barack Obama’s speech were told this week they have to put in six hours of volunteer work for his campaign by Friday to have a shot at a ticket.
And that ruffled at least a few feathers.
“My whole reason why I’m so mad about it is because Democrats need to act like Democrats,” said Heather Kreider, a working mother from Centennial.
“Democrats work for a living, and they have to work and take care of their families. And they say these are open to those in the community, so they shouldn’t ask people to drop everything in their lives for this,” Kreider said Tuesday.
“It’s not fair. It’s elitist. And they need to practice what they’re preaching,” she added,
In fairness to the Obama campaign, if they have to allocate a limited number of tickets, it isn’t unreasonable that they’d give preferential treatment to their loyal volunteers. But the way they’re going about it seems brash and is creating some bad PR. This will become more embarrassing if somehow he doesn’t fill the 80,000 seats.
