What If The Next Few Obama Rallies Turn Into "No Show Rallies"?

Posted on 05/08/2012 6:56:09 AM PDT by Reality_News

Ohio was embarrassing enough,but what if it happens again in Virginia,North Carolina,Nevada,Colorado and Pennsylvania? Are we going to see staunch Obama supporters either knocking on doors/making phone calls begging teeny boppers/aka/kool-aid drinkers to show up at rallies? Even offer free kool-aid and "hotdogs"? We need to wonder what the campaign is doing now.It's not easy getting a few thousand angry Americans in a purple state to show up at a "Liberal Radical" rally.

It is claimed that that picture of the half empty stadium was taken an hour after Barry left.

When it gets closer to November, they’ll call in the music.

In politics, if you think fewer reporters will show up, you change your setting to a smaller location, cozier. Easier to pack, and crowd noise seems so much louder. Camera angles are scoped out early and fixed.
Otherwise, your candidate may be speaking to an empty arena.

the commie crowds will be down from 2008, even if they are paid. The bigger question is how does obamney draw crowds unless he names Sarah Palin as VP?

Which begs the question, why didn't Urkel's people simply release a pic from an hour earlier?

Or did The Secret Service forget the camera?

They will just do what they did in Europe before the 2008 elections- throw a free music concert then have Obama show up and give a political speech and make it look like the throng was there to see him.

And where did Michelle disappear to??

Team Obama will fill the stands with nonvoters and new voters much like they did in 2008.

I fully expect to see high school teachers bring their classes to Obama rallies being held on college campuses across the nation. In both cases the teachers’ unions will provide extra credit for their students “voluntary” participation.

We are already seeing this trend - look at the location of the Ohio rally and where Obama is ging some of his campaign centered speeches. He has already given one in a high school for Pete's sake; how many registered or likely voters were there?

BTW - I trust no poll, good or bad for Obama, that samples only registered voters. Historically those polls that sample only likely voters are more accurate. BL - remember the media created Obama and are doing everything up to and possibly including financial suicide to get him reelected.

Yeah, but Obama cannot do smaller. Remember Germany and Denver with the columns. Going small will deflate him like a dirigible.

We won’t know about it since the legacy media is so in the tank and such willing accomplices that there won’t be anything published by them.

Fox News last night showed a photo of the half empty stadium from behind stage right with Zero at the Podium. it's a bitch when facts get in the way of a good story for the Prestitutes and Mouth pieces.

In Texas, LBJ went to the barrios and gave out free tamales and long-necks, so giving freebies to their base has been SOP for Dems for decades.

I've heard they are already adjusting to smaller venues where they can show people packed in. Also, they are sticking to college campuses where they can lure young people who don't understand the scope of what he has done in 4 years.

College freshmen and sophomores can vote now and were only about 15 when he was elected the first time. They have not likely put Obama's behavior above their own interests such as sports, proms and graduation over the last three years.

On the other hand. College sophomores, juniors and seniors who were swept up in Obama mania and greek columns are now out on the street looking for work, living with mom and dad again, or doing jobs below what they expected three years ago.

The drop off rate in Obama idolatry has been significant; he is somewhat of a fad that is going the way of pet rocks, leisure suits and mood rings.

The apologists are all about trying to sell the '14,000' attendance number, but frankly I don't see even that many.

Maybe someone familiar with the arena can chime in,
but if the upper deck is empty, ditto most of the floor, is it even possible for the lower deck to hold 14K ??

Assuming, of course, that the lower deck was actually filled !

Agree - media will dress up the windows. Obamao should be a sitting duck, but thanks to the geniuses who appointed Willard we might see the lowest voter turnout (% wise) in a generation.

"When it gets closer to November, they’ll call in the music."

Obama is heading for friendly territory in Seattle to hold a fundraiser on Thursday. Yesterday they announced the added thrill of the Dave Matthews Band in order to try to fill the place with idle OWS street dregs.

The novelty of Obama has warn off. He still has his groupies in the media, but people are beginning to discover that he is a pop star with little talent, and one routine, a one hit wonder that has been played ad nauseam.

Original was claim it was taken before nobama was on stage, but there was another photo with the two commies waving at the audience and the same empty sections were seen even though Nobama campaign tried to darken the background.

You can bet his campaign will “make sure” this is portrayed better at all future rallies, even if the buses are hauling em in from far away.

Hi Mom used to hang a porkchop around his neck to get the dogs to play with him.

But, that was before he started calling the porkchop "dog-bait."

Guy doesn’t can’t just show up as the exclamation point to a concert anymore and pretend he could draw 70,000 people.

Secret Service Nightmare for logistics.

He pulled that magic trick with a complicit press who never reported that me merely showed up where there already these unbelievably large crowds, who were just waiting in adoration and idolation to hear from their savior.

It was unbelievable because it wasn’t true.

I was there (Schottenstein Center) last month with family for my son's graduation. It was packed to the rafters and this was a winter quarter graduation. That being said, June graduations are held in Ohio Stadium which holds around 105,000. It a BIG school. Based on the photos from the perspective of the ample backside of Frau Eat Right my guess is the crowd was under 10,000. The two upper decks make up more than half the seating. In honor of Her Thighness, here is the seating chart for a Monster Truck rally:

They'll bus-in Union Members, Media dupes, etc., to fill it up with "Cross-Section of Middle Income Americans", claiming they turned thousands away due to lack of space and Fire Regulations.

No way the Media will cover the lack of support, except from the socialist base (Unions, Felons, Minorities, Yewts, Illegals, etc.)
