“Our leader? I thought he was our president.”

I believe for a while Michelle was making comments about how her partner would make a great “ruler,” until one of her handlers took her aside and gave her a short lesson on US civics and the aversion of Americans to kings and such.
It may have been something like Truman calling fertilizer “manure” at an Independence, MO flower club meeting: Someone complained to Bess and she said, “It took me years to get him to say manure.
Mookie was either just saying what she was thinking, or maybe she thought “ruler” sounded better than what she was really thinking.

First, the event was at Value City Arena, which is a basketball venue, not Ohio Stadium, where they play football. The local papers reported attendance at 14,000. Seating capacity for the arena is 20,000.

Further - an arena that was less than half-full. Notice that not only was the upper deck completely empty, but where are the photos that show BEHIND the President? I have strong suspicions that only half of the lower level was full... which would imply that the arena was far less than 50% filled.

No, "ruler" really is how they see it. It is part of their defective thought process of what the governing of this Republic actually is.

Valerie Jarret told Brokaw that "given the daunting challenges that we face, it's important that president elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one."

The sad truth - Racial guilt will be back in force when November rolls around. Add to that fact, many conservatives just cannot get enthusiastic about voting for Mitt Romney (who admits he is a “Republican” out of convenience.

Anyone who has ever worked on large campaigns knows that the ‘kickoff’ is a special important event.

Political mavens spend hours determining exactly the location where the most impact on desired demographic groups and swing voters will be found. You know that they thought an Ohio arena would be perfect.

Once a site is determined, the advance men spend weeks and months setting up the event and making sure that their ‘base’ is revved up and there to cheer with enthusiasm.

Think about the Obama 08 campaign and the crowds he drew. It may be telling that they picked a medium sized arena instead of a open air facility like a one for a rock concert.

This turnout, seen with the entire upper deck emptied down to the lower areas to fill in the vacant areas had to be disappointing. It the type of thing advance men get fired for.

I am guessing 5,000 or less. There would be no one seated in stands behind the kenyan I would bet. The upper deck is completely empty and it looks like it holds quite a few seats. Come to think of it, 5,000 might be to high of an estimation.

Have to disagree, the slavery guilt has been repaid in most of those minds without “mo reparations cash” to gain. Remember the first couple of years with holders people in yo face 150%? Am betting most of those non-black voters vividly remember, no one likes their nose rubbed in someone else’s victory.

The Messiah enthusiasm is worn out, required too much hope and wrong kinda change. No doubt 95% of holders people that vote will vote racial again, trouble for nobama is the turn out.

In the ‘not full’ picture, everyone is looking in the same direction.

Not only that, even though it's kind of hard to tell from the photo, it looks like everybody in the seating areas are standing. Why would everybody be standing 3 hours before Obama was scheduled to appear on stage?

And, several people on the floor are taking pictures ... of something.

Can’t say that I agree - seeing lots of freshly-applied Obama 2012 bumper stickers on the automobiles of a wide variety of Caucasian-driven automobiles, from junkers through the Lexus and Mercedes SUV crowd. It just blows my mind.

Strangely enough, twelve years later when asked about that day, not one of the participants could remember being there.

And today, less than 4 years later, not a single white person you stop on the street would remember voting for Obama...or admit to it.

10-20 - Little Rock/North Little Rock, Arkansas. There are some wealthy liberals around here... the perfect illustration of idiots.

You are in Texas? Last time I was that direction, even the mention of the name “Obama” (even when cracking a joke) would draw a minimum of ugly stares.

Our dear, dear leader deserves better than this blatant racism being displayed

Exactly what part of stating that the arena was half empty equals "racist"?

OH - year, right. How could I forget. Another Liberal Codewords. Anything against Obama = "racist"

In Congressman Louie Gohmert’s home district, Tyler. Any ol Yeller Dog dems left, hide around here.

Sure don’t have much overt “O” enthusiasm even from the reparations crowd, although those that do vote in Nov, will sty with Nobama.
