(Washington, D.C., 5/6/12) Responding to unconfirmed reports President Obama kicked off his re-election campaign in a half-empty stadium at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, response to the photograph has been swift. Ohio will play an important part in the election of 2012 as it's considered a swing state.
According to our sources, a spokesman for the campaign called the allegations of a half-empty stadium ludicrous. His statement, made on condition of anonymity, follows:
Attempts to paint this kickoff re-election effort as a failure fall far short of reality. Had the photographer taken his picture 3 hours later, the world would have seen the arena was filled to over-flowing with enthusiastic, adamant fans of Obama. To suggest otherwise is ludicrous.
Take any photo of an NFL stadium 3 hours before kickoff and you'd assume no one cared. Such is the case here. Fans were overflowing outside the stadium but adequate security measures prevented everyone from being there at the time this photo was taken. Our dear, dear leader deserves better than this blatant racism being displayed and the right-wing ought to be ashamed of itself for choreographing this charade.
The Obummer Administration can’t help themselves, lying is as natural as breathing. I would hope enough Americans will understand that come November and vote this alien and his sycophants out office and preferably out of the country. Those new democracies in the Middle East they helped create would be a nice home.
This shouldn’t be tough to prove. There has to be a photo of the crowd once the “messiah” hit the stage.
It will be reported as so, beloved Fuhrer!
I could care less one way or another, but the idiot who took the picture 3 hours earlier is dumb. People are still in line going through security. Wait until the show starts and then take the picture.
Why does anyone give two shits whether the stadium was half full or half empty?
Nothing a little Photoshopping can’t fix...
Was it the campaign who released the photo’s??
So I’m sure they released pics of the full arena then, right?
It was full. Everyone arrived late.
So why were the people in the picture taking pictures? I don’t you usually take pictures of an empty stage.
This appears to be satire.
That is true, but that is Obama voters for you...stupid to the core. Of course we are going to be pretty stupid too when we vote for (God Help us) Romney.
Here’s the link for the photo.
From the link;
“We here at Liberal Lunacy poke fun at Democrats, Liberals and establishment Republicans by inventing stories that aren’t true, but based on past actions and/or words COULD be. “
". . . According to our sources, a spokesman for the campaign called the allegations of a half-empty stadium 'ludicrous'. His statement, made on condition of anonymity, follows:Uummmm . . . if the event was a huge success and the arena was full to over-flowing as the person asserts, then . . . why not provide a name? I mean there's nothing to reflect back negatively on the Obama campaign if this what this person claims is factual and not just more liberal lies. On the other hand, if this guy is shoveling BS then it would make more sense that he wouldn't wish to give his name.'Attempts to paint this kickoff re-election effort as a failure fall far short of reality. Had the photographer taken his picture 3 hours later, the world would have seen the arena was filled to over-flowing with enthusiastic, adamant fans of Obama. To suggest otherwise is ludicrous.'. . ."
I figured it was nothing that cartons of cigarettes, and vouchers for the local liquor stores couldn't fix..
