If you’ve got a private event, you have the right to say who can be there, who can’t, etc. However, if you’re the President, and you are hosting a PUBLIC event and the PUBLIC is paying for it, there’s no right to keep THE PUBLIC from attending. But that’s exactly what’s going on now with Bush, at least at his rally this week on Social Security reform. Several people, including the producer of the democratic talk radio Ed Schultz show, were denied entry because they were blacklisted.
This is an atrocity when we have to pay our taxes for these rallies, but cannot attend. Bush will lose on this one bigtime.
