Obama to Charge Press for Political Rally in Grant Park

On election night Barack Obama will hold a rally in Chicago's Grant Park which is on the shore of Lake Michigan just north of Soldier Field and west of the Loop. Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun Times has reported on her blog that the Obama campaign will charge news outlets for access into the event. Taxes in Chicago have done nothing but explode and now the Obama campaign will charge news outlets for the pleasure of covering this final campaign rally in a Chicago Public Park. All I want to know is, where's my check!?

On the flip side, Obama has been treating the press as "his bitches" for over four years now, so why stop now? The press seems to like it. Besides there will be no charge for the "General Press Area" including the bike racks. Well it is good of them to not rent out the city bike racks that are all over the place. Considering that I can see Grant Park from our office and the view will likely be better than from the "General Press Area" maybe we should rent it out to one of the networks.

You should get together with some similarly sited friends, put together a package, and make a huge google ad buy. How fun would that be? Give BO a little competition.

I wonder if you went to BO's house whether he would charge you for dinner?

I doubt that I could get within a block of the Obama mansion. I have been considering taking a sleeping bag, a tripod and some cameras down to the office and watching the returns from Downtown that night. Hopefully the pigeon will be gone by then.

Why is anyone surprised? The liberal illuminati want to overcharge the citizens of America for working.
