    It seems the democrats have recently created jobs, but not as a result of an ‘Obama recovery’. In fact, the ‘jobs’ they’ve created are a result of questionable campaigning practices. Wednesday, Mitt Romney had a campaign event in Ohio, and the protestors present were folks endorsing Obama, wearing purple, pro-Obama SEIU t-shirts, reading “SEIU for Obama 2012″. So, they must have been apart of the SEIU (a union) and must want Obama to be reelected, if I’m reasoning through this correctly. The Blaze has the story:

    The video, posted to YouTube on Wednesday, showed protesters carrying a variety of signs including “SEIU for Obama 2012.” Some wore T-shirts in the labor union’s signature purple.

    The article also states:

    One woman said the SEIU picked people up from around the community to come protest and that a lot of activists just “go door to door.”

    But are these real protestors …who showed up, because they wish to selflessly engage in exercising their freedom of speech, standing in the rain, because they love their country, and would never take a paycheck to do so (like most protestors in these United States)?

    No.

    Actually, they were being paid $11 per hour. How nice. The Blaze:

    “We rode down here today,“ one man with an ”SEIU for Obama” sign said on camera. “They’re paying $11 an hour.”

    We should elect Romney so these protestors would have a full-time job. :thumbs:

    It should be obvious but I will explain it anyway. They cannot get genuine protestors to come and protest they have to pay them to be there. They are not real protestors, they are just paid to look like it.

    How do you know they aren't 'genuine protestors?'

    They're union. They're not going to do anything for free. :smilewinkgrin:

    One can only hope that you are right...

    Then perhaps they won't show up to vote because there won't be a paycheck for going to the polls.

    Other than an IOU for future benefits from the government courtesy of the taxpayers that is.
