Reality Check, Aisle Five!

This is absolutely priceless.

Obama campaign workers angry over unpaid wages

Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. Police were called to the Obama campaign office on North Meridian Street downtown to control the crowd.

The line was long and the crowd was angry at times.

"I want my money today! It's my money. I want it right now!" yelled one former campaign worker.

What? You think that just because you worked for it, that somehow it's your money? Don't be so naive. That's Barack Obama's money, and as soon as he's done spreading that wealth around in whichever manner he sees fit, he'll be sure to give you the change.

You do want the "change", don't you?

Eventually people did start getting paid, but some said they were missing hours and told to fill in paperwork making their claim and that eventually they would get a check in the mail.

But, of course.

"Still that's not right. I'm disappointed. I'm glad for the president, but I'm disappointed in this system," said Diane Jefferson, temporary campaign worker.

Excuse me?

You performed worked in exchange for financial compensation, and now The Almighty One, Barack Obama isn't giving you all of what you supposedly earned?

That's EXACTLY the system that you voted for!

"It should have been $480. It's $230," said Imani Sankofa.

"They gave us $10 an hour. So we added it. I added up all the hours so it was supposed to be at least $120. All I get is $90," said Charles Martin.

"I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned," said Randall Waldon.

American citizens bitterly complaining about their hard-earned wages being withheld from them by an organization run by a radical, leftist politician. Talk about a bunch of unpatriotic whiners.
