It sounds good. Just make tickets for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll available on-line. Avoid the wait, the lines, and make ’em available all over the country. Just go online and order ’em.
Naturally, with anything the Obama folks try, they’re going to make a mess. There is a poetic justice here. When you act like an arrogent jerk and try to “CHANGE” everything, you blow it.
No wonder they are destroying this country. If you can’t even organize an Easter Egg Roll, how the heck to you plan to take care of the economy?
“…The switch to online distribution was envisioned as a way to ease the process and make tickets to the April 13 event on the White House’s South Lawn available to a broader cross section of people across the nation. By 6 p.m. yesterday, tickets had been snatched up by people in 41 states, a spokeswoman said. By 7:45, the Web site said all tickets were gone.
Complaints began surfacing early yesterday, shortly after the tickets became available.
Several people said that they were unable to log on to the White House ticket site or that when they logged on, tickets weren’t available. Some resorted to Craigslist to find tickets, for as much as $50 apiece. A spokeswoman for the White House said it was working with Internet sites to prevent ticket sales. She said the staggered distribution was done to give more families the chance to get tickets without having to be available at a specific time.
Tracy Rotton of Aspen Hill said she started trying to reserve tickets for her two children at 8 a.m. At 2:15 p.m., she announced via Twitter that she had gotten her tickets.
“I was a bit dubious when I first heard about the White House’s plans for offering the Easter Egg Roll tickets online,” Rotton said in an e-mail to The Washington Post yesterday. “And for much of the morning . . . I was being proved right.”
Kristin Vergis of Garden City, N.Y., said she was up until midnight to see whether the ticket site was active. She went to the site again at 6 a.m. and tried to reserve tickets throughout the day, to no avail. “At one point, I got through the verification process and then was timed out,” she said in an e-mail to The Post. “I wish the ticket process had been left the way it was.”…”
