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.

  • Jack

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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

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

    Hmmm Kinda like telling your Wife…. I love you honey But you have bad breath, you are fat, ugly, have bad breath, bad teeth, dress poorly, are ignorant, mean and nasty, I hate your parents and you need breast implants and a face lift.

  • 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.

  • wtd

    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.

  • Piss off you disgusting narcissist. The only reason I would go would be for a chance to spit in your face.

  • dw dude

    you mean all that texting to Obama phones and they still can’t get the turnout? oh wait, low information voters disappointed that they can’t book a hotel with their ebt card…

    #2, Your unintentionally touching on something…Voter Fraud!!! This is more proof that the election was rigged!

    Crowds? We don’t need no stinkin’ crowds!
    We’re taking “the oath” (ahem) in secret anyway…

    I’d be right next to you pal…just wish we could watch him getting that long overdue punch in the face on national t v. he’s the guy in high school that used to curse at you while hiding behind his football playing brother and his friends…someday he will be caught alone.

  • Team Obama can just get Pelosi to photoshop in the other missing 1,500,000 who are otherwise occupied with studying their lower paychecks trying to figure how they became the 2% who only got a tax hike.

  • As a counterpoint to those post-Inaugural photos, why don’t you show photos of the Mall after the Tea Party rally, or after the Pro-Life rallies? Really show up the Obamunistas.

  • bg


    what, no hot dogs & band??

    oh wait, how about vibrators

    only progressive can make this crap up..
    are they waging a war against men?? 😯


  • Elizabeth

    I doubt the Obama fiends care about the turn out. The corrupt Democrat media will just take photos from certain angles to give the impression that the crowd is just as large as last time.

  • Sasja

    Aw, who cares anyway. Progs are such pigs and here they whine about our poor fragile planet and everywhere they go, they trash the place.

  • connie

    I knew he would not get many people at his Inaugural ball and it serves them right that no one would be there, this is what happens in voter fraud and this should be a lesson for all who commit it we will ignore the ones who do it!

  • midusdew

    Here we go, paid crowds will be bussed in.

    We need to get this pinko thrown out.

    So NOW you’re against political contributions from corporations. LMAO

  • I FOR ONE, won’t be watch it! Why should King O worry, they’ll just bus in supporters and illegals and some paid extras to trump up the “massive throngs” waiting to hear their King insult the opposition, say how his brain is EVEN BIGGER than Einstein’s, and wax about how LINCOLN like he is!

    Good! DC has more than enough garbage in it already.

    That’s fascinating, as PIC via Ticketmaster at around 7:25 EST today went live with tickets to the Parade and Inauguration. The Inauguration tickets nearly crashed that particular link site and sold out within minutes…..

    I think I will record him stating the Presidential Oath of Office and send him a copy of the recording every time he fails to consider the constitution in his actions or disregards or ignores its principles in any way, shape or form as a reminder to him that the “Change” he desires for this country is not such a good thing. It would seem to me that not many actions of those of the liberal persuasion are in accord with that oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” His big campaign slogan of “Change” is not in compliance with that promise and he should be held accountable and suffer the consequences if he disregards it in his actions. That is the only reason I would spend any time in observance of his inauguration.

  • Highlander

    I think I’ll spend that day re-loading ammo ….

    “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.

    That’s ’cause he and Pelosi cheated the vote and DID NOT WIN a darned thing.

    In fact, Pelosi was responsible for cheating the down votes too in most every state.

    People in NJ, NY, OH Fl. and more are going to jail for vote fraud.

    This is getting interesting. Will they end up paying people to attend like they do at elections? Maybe they’ll have a band and free pizza, hot dogs and beer. 😆

  • Truth Teller

    We need a million Patriots to show up and protest…block the brainwashed idiots from entering.

  • shadow #43

    Nazis and other leftists have no compassion. That includes leftist trolls like you.

  • Diana

    The Democrats have figured out how to get dead people to vote, but they haven’t mastered the art of producing those voters for the big bash in Washington.

  • Patty

    They were worried about filling seats during campaign, that didn’t matter, now did it? It is obvious Obama doesn’t care about a d— thing. He won we lost.

  • Jeannie

    Either it never posted or my comment that phony votes and stolen votes and dead voters cannot show up to an inauguration was pulled.

    The Fate Of The Republic Is In The Hands Of One Man…

    Chief Justice John G. Roberts will give, by long-standing tradition, the following Oath to Obama on January 21, 2013: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully

    No problem, they’ll just bus them in at the last minute, just like they “helped” people vote.

    So, team Obama is “starting to worry” about a low inauguration turnout…

    This, yet again, shows just how messed up Obama’s narcissistic priorities are.


    Obama had little or no worries about the lack of security before and during the Benghazi murders (Obama, of course, will have very heavy security before and during the self-aggrandizing Presidential Inauguration ceremony).

    Nor was Obama worried about the safety of the video producer that his administration falsely blamed for these murders.

    Then there’s the fact that team Obama, along with various Dems and Reps, decided to spend their time and efforts promoting and passing his unread “Obama Care” scam bill, rather than worrying about the severe recession that has gripped the nation since mid-late 2009.

    Nope, nothing to worry about there.

    But a low inauguration turnout?

    Now that’s something any self-respecting NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) afflicted politician would worry about.

  • thegoldman

    Makes you wonder who voted for him ? ?

    Every one i know says they voted for Rom…

  • Chris W.

    The death of white guilt? One can only hope.

    Low turnouts at campaign stops and low turnout at the inaguration also makes one scratch his head about the results at the polls. Must be a coincidence, surely.

  • ChillytheAlaskan

    Yep, phony paper voters and votes rolled over from Romney by election machines can’t show up and celebrate the biggest election/voter fraud in the history of the United States.

    Anyone who thinks he was actually elected needs their brain examined. Romney won, Obama cheated and stole his votes.

  • BarbaraS

    He can’t multiply one supporter into four or five or more like he did voters in the election. Also, the dead will not attend nor will the people who stated to the canvassers that they would not vote and were voted by those same canvassers. The stuffed ballots will not attend either no matter how hard the “citizens” in Philadelphia and other black communities try. He had very little attendance to his rallies before the election and the only answer is he cheated. He took a leaf out of Chavez’s book and rigged the election.
