I met Barack Obama a couple of times before he was elected in 2008. Since then a financial barrier has between us, I feel. I do receive messages almost every day asking for money, however, even though he was re-elected nine months ago. Anyway, just now I received a Tweet on Twitter:
Want to meet President Obama backstage at an event this summer?
Enter today for the chance for you and a guest to fly out and meet the President—all expenses on us.”
Sounds good to me. I did it. But once you’ve filled out the email and zip code lines, a new screen pops up: “Chip in!” And I’m asked for a donation, of course.
Your free chance to meet the President. No catch, just sign up here: http://t.co/TyzfiG0B1Y
