Fired Up! Ready to Go!… Obama Rocks to Half-Empty Arena – While Only 800 Waste Their Time to Hear Biden

Fired Up! Ready to Go!
Despite the his big media support and his free traveling rock star entourage, Barack Obama could only half-fill the arena in Columbus, Ohio today.

(Caleb Bonham)

The media said 15,000 supporters attended the event.
The media was being generous.

Meanwhile in Virginia…
Joe Biden continued to impress.

800 supporters actually turned out to hear Joe Biden rant his endless nonsense. Once again, the chattering Democrat could not get over that 1,000 supporter hump at a rally.
Nice campaign, Donks.

    Russian Sub Skirts Coast
    Russian attack sub detected near East Coast

    A Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine cruised within 200 miles of the East Coast recently in the latest sign Russia is continuing to flex its naval and aerial power against the United States, defense officials said.

    The submarine was identified by its NATO designation as a Russian Seirra-2 class submarine believed to be based with Russia’s Northern Fleet. It was the first time that class of Russian submarine had been detected near a U.S. coast, said officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of anti-submarine warfare efforts.[……………………….]

    This is a concession speech.

    Video. All I can say is – this is a concession speech. Seriously – I’m not being political about this. The is a goodbye talk by Michele introducing her husband (10 minutes.) Listen to her verbs. Look at her face. All of the references to the future can be translated into “we lost the election, but our job is not over, it’s now in your hands.”

    Loudon County is considered to be the decider in VA. Very nice place, by the way. Lots of horses and stuff.

    I don’t think the class warfare is going to pay off for Obama in Virginia.

    Obama 11 picks and Romney 8 on the site I just posted above.

  • Patty

    The Hill predictions:

    Prediction: Romney 325, Obama 213

    The predictions are all over the map.

  • That photo of Biden…look behind him and you’ll see Tim Kaine. Looks like all he needs is a dunce cap while sitting on that stool.

  • shadow

    So Romney draws 11,000 and it’s a “MASSIVE CROWD,” that is “unreal.” Yet Obama’s crowd of 15,000 is somehow disappointing?

  • Mad Hatter


    Obama drew 60,000 in Columbus Ohio on November 2nd, 2008.

    This time around he could only draw 15,000 and he had Springsteen with him this time. How can that not be disappointing?

    God Bless Romney & Ryan!!

    G-Damn Obama & the preacher he rode in on..


  • Fionnagh

    #13 LOL:)

  • Sasja

    Springsteen was the big draw, not Barry.

    Romney pulls them in because of Romney.

  • shadow

    So what are you saying? Since Romney never drew a crowd of 60,000, he would’t find 11,000 disappointing?

  • shadow

    Springsteen was the big draw, not Barry.

    And yet in South Florida, Obama drew 23,000 without Springsteen or any other entertainment.

  • Patty above is right – the Obama event in Iowa tonight was like a wake, first Michelle & then Obama. Some time into CNN switches from Mitt & Ann in the corner before thousands in NH, it was jarring – thousands of folks screaming, etc. – it was PRIME point in Romney stump speech – then – after good portion + hearing & editing (amazing!) they went back to Obama – he was moaning about negative advertising … it was near silent, like death there. They came to bury the legend of Barack Hussein Obama! Eventually one guesses CNN got depressed (I was already looking for the live Romney feed) and CNN eventually switched back to Romney’s closing – inspirational + optimistic & all – even the CNN anchors had to close saying, “two different tones, two different visions”. GO R&R GO!

    I see Nate Silver just gave his final prediction. He gives Obama a 92% chance of winning. He estimates Obama will get 315 electorial college votes.

    Apparently there has been a late movement in the polls towards Obama, possibly due to his handling of Sandy.

    “He gives Obama a 92% chance of winning. He estimates Obama will get 315 electorial college..”
    if we have that many dumb people…… i hear a lot of people selling off their so-called moral standards for 30 pieces of silver. one is contemplating voting for o so his 21 years old son can remain on his health insurance while still trying to claim the moral high ground that is counter obama’s policies and beliefs. i would’ve thought it better if obama concentrated more on getting the economy on track so maybe the kid would have a better chance for employment.

    It’s not the absolute size of the crowd it’s the expectations. It’s axiomatic that you book a space slighter smaller than the best estimate of the crowd you expect to draw so the story is about SRO or overflow speakers outside, not empty seats. Also a packed crowd helps generates excitement and a sense of belonging.

    This campaign Obama’s staff has consistently over estimated the size of the crowd he can draw this election cycle. They did it at the kickoff in May. They did it at the convention with the cavernous Bank of America Stadium and they did it in Columbus.

    Does this matter? You betcha. In 2008 Obama wasn’t a politician. He was the secular messiah. Celebrities wanted to be on stage with him to borrow some of his magic and voters wanted to be part of a historic campaign. In 2012, Obama’s just another pol. He needs the celebrities to enhance his image.

  • Look-Out

    The only way BHO will win. Fraud. No one does it better:

    …in Nevada to help re-elect President Obama.

    Culinary Workers Union Local 226 appears to be committing voter registration fraud by hoodwinking noncitizen immigrants into registering to vote and then threatening them if they fail to cast their ill-gotten ballots illegally. People who have been lawfully admitted to permanent residence in the United States, that is, permanent residents or green card holders, do not have the right to vote in elections.

    Glenn Cook of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that union members who barely speak English were made to sign voter registration forms without understanding what they were signing.

    Union goons then visited those members to press them to vote. When they failed to vote, union officials kept visiting and ramping up the pressure.

    “One of the immigrants was visited at home by a Culinary representative and said the operative made threats of deportation if no ballot was cast,” according to Cook.

    Read more:

    Doncha just want him for another 4 years? A peach of a guy. Chooses terrific friends. His word is GOLDEN. Wouldn’t dream of breaking a PROMISE. OR A LAW.

    If this kind of thing makes you PUKE (obviously it doesn’t bother BHO one bit)…then get out and VOTE THE ($&#)s OUT.

    “He needs the celebrities to enhance his image.” i would say he and other politicos have more in common with these folks. all that’s missing is probably a membership in SAG.

  • Thom99

    Here is a simple explanation of who Barack Hussein Obama is and what he’s really up to:

    Barack Hussein Obama is a Marxist socialist revolutionary, and his goal is to transform the Unites States of America into a socialist state.

    It really is that simple.

    Oh, he certainly has secondary goals. He believes that America is too powerful and must be brought down economically and militarily, hence the multi-trillion-dollar debt, trillion-dollar annual deficits, the debilitating attacks on the military, and the dismantling of our industrial and energy sectors. He believes that America is an oppressor nation that should be made to pay restitution to oppressed minorities, inside the USA and elsewhere. He has other, equally destructive goals and ambitions.

    We have a President, a major political party, and mainstream news media that see America as the enemy. Obama’s goals are transparent, and there are many of us who do not want him to succeed. The real question is: what are Americans going to do about Obama and his socialist fellow travelers? It is not possible to make a composition with them. Their aim is to destroy us.

    Are we going to fight them with every resource at our disposal? Or are we going to let them win?

    Whatever the outcome of November 6, each of us has a personal decision to make. And then we must take action.

    quit golfing in Palm Springs twice a year (just cannot support liberal Ca)
    I dont shop in my own hometown since they put up red light cameras! Hit em where it
    hurts! Oh, and here in Washington, we voted to privatize the liquor stores and the
    liberal legislature added taxes that cost more than their bloated monopoly cost, so I
    don’t buy booze anymore here either. Example, a 1/2 gal Crown Royal is like $55.

    [So, according to Pastor Lowery, Obama’s lack of character and lack of leadership are irrelevant. I, being a n—-, as Pastor Lowery refers to black Americans, must vote for Obama or join all the white people in hell. Pastor Lowery is a racist. Racism is evil.] i believe the pastor tried to back off his statement – just a joke. he of course was the same one could only come up with “whites do what’s right” in his riming at the 2009 inaugration. this classless display that foretold what the next 4 would be like and what would be missing. fired up to fire him up and out of the w.h.

  • Brivar Houtex

    My election prediction is that it comes down to Ohio with Romney ahead by a very narrow margin. The lawyers get involved claim suppression and the people threaten riots. The votes are recounted and the balance tips to Obama. In typical Republican appeasement fashion Romney will concede for the good of the country to avoid chaos and riots tearing this country apart. Every conservative will cry piss and moan about how Obama didn’t win and he isn’t their president. A whole lot of blog traffic but no action and no results. I hope I’m wrong and I’m willing to wait in line all day go vote for Romney to try and stop it but I think every one under estimated Axlerod and the liberals desire to win.

  • Granny

    Just back from voting here in Vermont. We were there just as the polls opened – us three and a couple hundred other people. The lady supervising the big bins where you insert your marked ballots looked around at the crowd and said “this is scary” – apparently this big a turn out is highly unusual. Go R&R!

  • Gary

    What we’re really seeing is the invisible hand at work.

    People worry about what will happen when the majority of the country are net takers, and what will stop them once they realize they can vote money away from the makers.

    But now we see that there’s a reason they’re net takers. They’re lazy. Sure they got fired up in 2008, but look at the unusual circumstances. They totally rolled over in 2010, and they’re still in lazy mode even now. Obama was counting on getting 51% of the country hooked on crack with himself as the dealer.

    Now he needs a bunch of crackheads to keep him in power, but they’re sleeping in.

    Funny how things take care of themselves.

    Nobody were attracted to attend Biden’s rallies even in 2008…and not now. Biden was only chosen as VP because he makes look Obama like a genius.

  • Limousine Barry

    I will admit that Joe Biden blows! He is an idiot. But he is my Idiot! Nobody likes him including me!

    Whoa, I just got this message via Davy Axelrod which is now being tickered across the bottom of CNN.

    It says:

    “0bama finds 305,666 new absentee ballots in New Hampshire. 0bama takes early lead. No need for Republicans to vote.”

    See! I am ahead! There is no need for the Republicans to even vote. I have probably won New Hampshire…

    Ah, crap. My East to West Time Zone trick is not working! New exit polls are coming in and I am losing!

    But, that is why you should vote for me. I am a consistent liar.

    If reelected, I promise higher unemployment, higher gas prices and free taxes! Bill Clinton will have a nose candy party.

    I am so excited by my early lead that I can’t even read the teleprompter – my loins are hurting.

    If you like my grossly dishonest TV interviews Teleprompted by David Axelrod and his multimillion dollar company – then vote for me!

    Send me $3,666.00 before mid-noon Eastern Standard Time! This is you last chance to send me money – before the election is over. Send me more money now!

    The reason you guy lost is that you had to lie about everything, there were 15,000 people at this rally. A very silly thing to lie about but for some strange reason you needed it to feel better. How do you feel now that America has spoken? Are you ready to leave this nonsense behind and help us restore our nation?
