With what appears to me to be a move which further fuels Obama’s apparent insatiable ego, instead of announcing his acceptance at the convention hall, his campaign just announced that he will leave the convention hall and announce instead “to the American people,” to 75,000 people assembled at a “huge, free, open-air event where he will deliver his acceptance speech to the American people.”
In part, his announcement states:
It’s going to be an amazing event, and Barack would like you to join him. Free tickets will become available as the date approaches, but we’ve reserved a special place for a few of the people who brought us this far and who continue to drive this campaign.
If you make a donation of $5 or more between now and midnight on July 31st, you could be one of 10 supporters chosen to fly to Denver and spend two days and nights at the convention, meet Barack backstage, and watch his acceptance speech in person. Each of the ten supporters who are selected will be able to bring one guest to join them.
Make a donation now and you could have a front row seat to history…
Uh, so it is free, unless of course, you donate to his campaign, at which case you might be a lucky person that wins a free trip to see him in person.
Rumors had been floating around for days that he may do this. Sort of make all those supporters that paid thousands to be at the convention, who are really the people driving his campaign appreciative of the attention he is giving them, eh? DO you think they will accompany him to the “open-air” event or will they just stand on the floor of the convention hall and watch it on TV like the rest of us “American people?”
