Skip to comments.Obama Campaign: “We’re Purposely Limiting Attendance”
Posted on 08/18/2012 2:43:49 PM PDT by Da Bilge Troll
Obamas and Bidens campaign events have been marked recently by less than impressive attendance. Meanwhile, attendance at Mitts events have been overwhelming. Here is a couple of pictures of his recent visit to Chillicothe, Ohio.
Well, it turns out there is a reason for Obamas less than overwhelming attendance. It seems that his campaign is purposely limiting tickets:
We have plenty of time for big rallies, a campaign spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said between the rallies on Thursday. Our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters and the smaller and medium-size events are the best venue to accomplish that because the president can closely engage with the crowd.
Big rallies are expensive, especially given the logistical and security challenges for a president as opposed to a mere United States senator. And Obama campaign operatives, both at the Chicago headquarters and in swing states where Mr. Obama recently has stumped, say the campaign intentionally limits crowds by restricting tickets. The reason is to allow the president to better connect with supporters, aides say.
So when reporters report half-empty Obama fundraisers, his Campaign responds, Hey, we sold out!.
If they are being on the level, Im not sure that is wise. But then, theyre the experts, not me.
Another lie told by the BO campaign. BO needs as many worshipers as he can get-they just aren’t showing up. LOL!
I don’t want him just beaten.
I want him to lose by an historic margin.
I smell trouble...
Although it IS plausible, in that it is easier to “control” (i.e., seed, plant shills into) a smaller rally, and, let’s face it, there are security issues on both sides, but one candidate is the President and one is not (yet).
Can’t just show up as an appendage to a rock concert and fake that he was the main draw of 75,000 drunks and higher than a kite tokers.
Our synthetic present is a fraud, a woos and something less than a mommas boy whatever that is.
“....................But then, theyre the experts, not me.”
Experts at what!? Blatantly obvious BS?
Obama and Biden, aka the Teleprompter Twins.
I wonder if the Democrats will be able to fill that stadium they have reserved for the final night of the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. The big clue will be when they start giving away free tickets just to help fill the empty seats.
Obama and everyone around him are such a bunch of effing liars. Do they really think anyone will buy this lie?
Ha Ha Ha!! Change your name to Oscar Meyer obama,because you’re full of Bologna! Ha Ha Ha!
The truly nauseating thing is that they say this stuff with a straight face.
The spin masters at work. Too bad it isn’t working.
And more vomitous, the enemy of the Republic, the euphemistically called mainstream media, will report this blatant lie as truth. Guillotines from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure
