Obama says he's a prop: election up to his supporters

The Hill reports:

President Obama on Sunday urged his supporters to make a final push in the last two days before the election, telling them he and his campaign advisers were “props” and voters held the election in their hands.

At a rally in Concord, N.H. where he was joined by former President Bill Clinton, Obama spoke of meeting young campaign volunteers the night before at a rally in Virginia.

“We were talking to our staff and our field organizers, they’re all 25 or 22 and we were talking to them. And I said, well, how are things looking? And they seemed pretty confident,” said Obama. “And I looked at David Plouffe, some of you know he’s my big campaign pooh-bah, smart guy, but Plouffe and I looked at each other and we said, you know what, we’re no longer relevant now. We’re props. Because what’s happened is now the campaign falls on these 25-year-old kids who are out there knocking on doors, and making phone calls.” Facebook Fark Furl
