Team Obama “Starting to Worry” About Low Turnout for Inauguration

Team Obama is starting to seriously worry about low turnout for the 2012 Inauguration.
Two weeks before the big day, plenty of hotel rooms still haven’t been booked.

Two million turned out for the 2008 Inauguration.

The Daily Mail reported:

Crowds may have flocked to the National Mall to see President Obama make history in 2009, but the team behind the president’s 2013 inauguration bash later this month are bracing themselves for a ton of empty seats.

The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won’t be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol o watch Obama take the oath of office.

This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama’s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, January 21.

Two weeks before the big day, plenty of hotel rooms still haven’t been booked. Four years ago, some hotels sold out months in advance.

There will be just two official inaugural balls this year, both at the Washington Convention Center, rather than 10 official balls at multiple locations around town.

The pair of celebrations are the lowest number since 1953, according to the New York Post.

A political insider told the paper: ‘Some on the presidential inaugural committee are starting to seriously worry.’

His inaugural committee has also scaled the celebration back to three days of festivities, instead of four.

The poor Obama voters can’t afford the trip this year.

But on the bright side…
Maybe they won’t have to worry about the trash problem they faced after the 2008 Inauguration.

    Don’t worry Trumpka will bus paid sheep into the city for the festivities. The union bosses will fill the hotels courtesy the rank and file. I am sure millions will be on hand, just ask the main stream media on the day.

    I’ll believe when I see it. Until then it’s only wishful thinking. It doesn’t mean anything. I remember only a few months ago so-called smart people were telling us Romney was going to win in a landslide and all the momentum was on out side. Remember?

    I will be watching paint dry that day.

    I sure most of his supporters will be waiting for their foodstamps and obama phones that weekend.

    The trash exactly represents who the Obama people are.

    Well, Ladies and Gentlemen we don’t need to worry about Barack Hussein Obama about his inauguration because we hope not to hear any more lies or truth purposely said by him. No more Hope, Change and Forward.

    I wouldn’t go if my life depended on it nor will I watch the farce!

  • gastorgrab

    Hey, it’s no problem at all.

    Just get the number of that Photshop artist from Nancy Pelosi and add a few hundred thousand people to the crowd.

  • S. Wolf

    Surely they aren’t afraid the vote fraud that got Hussein a second chance to live like a king won’t mean people will ignore the imposter? /sarc

  • bigkahuna

    I still cant believe the people believed he loves this country… He says so but says he wants to fundamentally change it…

    That 2009 Inaugural looked like an Occupy camp

  • AuntieMadder

    Holy cow! Looks like a freakin’ landfill.

    By the way, there was no 2008 Inauguration. Kenya Boy was coronated/inaugurated in Jan 2009.

    The lack of attendance at O’s latest coronation inauguration coincides with the fraud committed at the polls during the election. Bus loads of paid voters driven to multiple different polling stations, early voting ballots by same voter in multiple locations, and multiple votes by same voter abusing absentee ballots were tactics which certainly provided the illusion of support for this administration. . .whereas those same bus loads of paid supporters and actual supporters showing up at one event at the same time certainly don’t make much of an impression.

  • Jackson

    Anyone in their right mind wouldn’t watch this ceremony………either in person or on TV. Seeing and hearing him on TV everyday is enough to make anyone sick to their stomach.

  • Path

    There is not enough money in the WORLD for me to attned this.

  • Multitude

    I’ll go if you pay me $7 million for the trip and fly me on Air Force one. Actually, I think I read that every American is entitled to that much government funds for a vacation each year.

    It is sad, however, to see that all the low-information ObamaPhone parasite voters aren’t willing to go worship their Sugar Daddy.
