Obama rally in Madison Wis. Madison????

Posted on 09/29/2010 7:58:48 AM PDT by umpqua

So let me get this straight, Obama goes to the liberal bastion of Madison Wis. to rally the troops. Hmm, maybe the elections are going even worse for demos than we realize.

Honest reporting would say it was a free concert for students featuring The National and Ben Harper with a prepared speech by Obama as part of the deal.

And he cannot muster a large crowd.

My best guess is that there were 12,500 in Library mall, with an additional 4-6 thousand total flanking it on Bascom and on State Street.

I was on Bascom Hill.

Exactly. Madison is the only place in the state that would welcome him.

Here in Texas, Austin has a slogan: “keep it weird.”
Madison’s slogan is: “keep it liberal.”

There are certain bastions of stupidity and delusion in this country where even a Leftist who is total failure can draw a crowd.

And, many if not most Madison Liberals are mad at Obama for not being liberal enough!

Bejing and Moscow are less communist than Madison.

Even during his 2008 Heyday, he still needed star acts to bring out crowds.

The big question is: Were the Raging Grannies there? And were they in support or protesting? If Obama has lost the Raging Grannies he’s agoner!

Here's the 'Troops' Obama should be worried about rallying.

They’d better protest while they still can, ‘cause when Obamacare kicks in, they’ll be the goners.

Just wait until open enrollment for health insurance hits the majority of America. The Dems are going to tank.

Announce FREE at any college or university, no matter what the FREE is, and it’s like you were offering government housing applications in Atlanta.

A friends daughter was there... obama spoke after all the festivities... they would not allow any of the crowd to leave until obama spoke. Many ignored him and partied on.

0bama just campaigned recently for Barney Frank.
Yes, that Barney Frank.
Even he is in serious trouble.
The Democrats are going to be blown out.
Unfortunately there just aren’t enough Democrat Senate seats up to give Republicans a super-majority, or they would be overriding 0bama vetos when they repeal everything he’s done since taking office.

The Soviet Socialist Republic of Madistan is the one place where he could be reasonably sure of drawing a relatively large and relatively friendly crowd.

From Shakespeare’s Henry The Eighth Act 3, scene 2, 350–358
Wolsey:
So farewell—to the little good you bear me.
Farewell? a long farewell to all my greatness!
This is the state of man: to-day he puts forth
The tender leaves of hopes, to-morrow blossoms,
And bears his blushing honors thick upon him;
The third day comes a frost, a killing frost,
And when he thinks, good easy man, full surely
His greatness is a-ripening, nips his root,
And then he falls as I do.

The worse the salesman, the more he hangs out with the easy marks.

Hard sells challenge their inept ability to do their jobs, so they hang out with they they are ALREADY sold, or people so stupid he knows they can be sold.

obama is inept and incompetent, if nothing else.

The reason he chose the USA instead of kenya to make is stand is, kenya doesn't have EEO and Affirmative Action...ergo he would have been living in a hut with his half-brother, George.

They wouldn’t let anyone leave??? What if you had to go to the bathroom? Did they have storm troopers there to keep people inside? What the heck?

Funny that his half brother lives in a hut, and his aunt lives in public housing as an illegal alien in Boston. Yet he touts his Christianity credentials as being one who is his brother’s keeper.

Actually, I nearly choked on my coffee when he spouted that "brother's keeper" remark, knowing the situation with his half-brother in kenya.

But, we all know he is speaking to the "brutha's", not the brothers, as his promise to keep them in the money is where his support and votes come from.

His aunt lives in poverty, and he threw his "typical white person" grandmother under the bus during his campaign...obama cares about nothing and no one, but himself...and that's not "Christian".

Media is not covering the Madison fundraiser aspect of this - pulling campaign cash for Barrett and Feingold.

The Obama event in Madison also included 3 bands playing - 2 of which are very popular national acts.

“Out-state” Wisconsin hates three things - Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago.

This has the potential to be a polarizing event.

Feingold is a Madison guy, Barrett is the poster child for Milwaukee’s decline and Obama is an out of touch liberal from Chicago.

This election is shaping up to be the barbarians in Milwaukee’s inner city and Madison’s liberal enclave versus civilization.
