For those of you who are unaware: I am a journalism major. And during election season, journalists are very busy.
Especially if you live in the battleground capital of this lovely little swing state of Ohio.For example, our campus has been visited not once, but twice by the Romney campaign. Once by Ann, the second time by Mitt and Paul Ryan. Pretty cool stuff. Now, being the editor of the campus newspaper means I get to do some behind the scenes, professional-style media work and attend these events, media credentials and all.
A few Romney campaign pictures for your viewing pleasure:
|Cowboy Troy and Big and Rich, who are touring with Mitt Romney's campaign|
|Paul Ryan. Fact: he has beautiful eyes.|
|Mitt Romney himself. I love this picture cuz I feel like he was looking right at me. Win.|
A few pictures from Obama's stop:
|No one exciting spoke or performed before him. Boo. Definitely a different atmosphere.|
|This one is just funny to me. I wish he would have looked at me though!|
And as you know, it's election day. If you haven't already, take advantage of this wonderful privilege and vote for the man you believe will guide our country best.
I will be sitting on my behind for hours upon hours in the board of elections in our country relaying the tallies to the Associated Press. I'm what they call a 'stringer,' as in they call me up for each election season and ask me to call them with results every 30 minutes and pay me to do so. Another win.
I am just about all politicked out, though!
Like I said, this post isn't political. I won't push my views, express my thoughts on either rally (unless you do care, in which case we can talk about this on an email basis, haha). Why? Because my candidate of choice will not influence your vote, it will only influence your opinion of me, which I hope would not change because of my vote. I just wanted to give you a glimpse of the glamorous (HA!) life of a journalist.
Enjoy your day, and God Bless this amazing country and all the privileges that come along with living in it!
