Headline on Drudge: Clinton plays to half-empty high school gym.
(Excerpt) Read more at drudgereport.com ...
I guess Clinton can be the optimist and say the “high school” gym was half full. :-)
I thought the state run “media” told us that Slick Willie and Barry Soetoro are playing to crowds of millions. What the....!
I guess they forgot to schedule a rock concert.
Easy explanation...Clinton is irrelevant.....he was the “Boy President” and just played for 8 years...now wants to be taken seriously but it isn’t selling for that is not his legacy. He is best known for shenanigans in the Oval Office.
I was in Downtown Detroit in May. It’s a ghost town. There’s more traffic in Bentonville, Arkansas then there is in Detroit during work hours on a weekday.
Triple “D” Ping
Democrats Downfall & Destruction
Altho the photo was probably taken at another time it says a lot.
So many captions, so little time.
Cartoon’s next book titled
My Life.......Sucks or
No Cuntry For Old Men?
Maybe the rock band found a better gig playing for a wedding at a local fire hall.
No, they forgot to bus them in, provide free food and walking around money. How soon some former president's forget what it takes!
***Theres more traffic in Bentonville, Arkansas then there is in Detroit during work hours on a weekday.***
Durn right there is! I stay away from the Centerton-Bentonville area during rush hour! It’s bad enough From Vaughn so I go a back route through Cave Springs to Rogers!
Maybe he was looking for a date?
What? No Pearl Jam? No Sheryl Crow? No Johnny Melloncamp?
Guess I'll just stay home, smoke some weed, and wait for Obama to give me my rent money like he promised...
"Clinton told about 500 people at Detroit's Renaissance High School that Bernero was the only candidate with an economic plan to turn around Michigan's battered economy and attract new jobs and businesses to the state's silent factories."
No word on the gym size versus attendance. Same thing holds true for the Ann Arbor stop:
"He was joined on the stage at the University of Michigan's Rackham Auditorium...The audience of more than 1,000 in Ann Arbor had to wait three hours to see Clinton and Dingell, as Clinton's appearance in Detroit got behind schedule. Clinton said it was important to re-elect Dingell and listed some of his accomplishments, including pushing through a health care reform law."
The Ann Arbor event was free, and Slick could only pull in 1,000?
They were: Tom Millions and family, Sandy Millions and family, Tony Millions and family, etc. :-)
There were only 1000 tickets available for the Battle Creek event.
Who forgot the Union buses and box lunches?
The only Democrat voters who have "come home" are in the media.
And the only polls in which the Democrats are closing the gap are the media's.
Accordingly, may I suggest that the only source of Democrat hopefulness is...the media.
But, how many fainted?!
The venue in Ann Arbor could only seat 1200 or so, and you needed to sign up to get tickets there as well.
A good omen: unmotivated voters don’t turn out to vote.
Remember Lepanto !!!
Bussing and free food takes alot of walking around money . I can’t believe the toon let this happen :-0 They must be saving the bucks for lawsuits after the election .
It would be nice if the Tea Party express stop in Jackson could pull in better numbers.
Liberalism is on the run.
Let’s keep chasing it until its gone.
I wonder how he got all those people to show up.
And all they could get was a half a gym full of curious kids getting out of class, who don't even remember the Clinton years. Enthusiasm gap--you bet.
Oh how the Mighty have fallen.
Was he trolling?
I take it BJ doesn’t pay as well as Sor-0bamadinejad.
Even NPR reported that the gym was less than half full.
Wow, and he draws a larger crowd than BO!
Ann Arbor is psycho left like Boulder, CO and Madison, WI - due to college prof vermin aka no one ever grows up in a college town.
It’s really sad to see a once great city dwindle to almost nothing.
I plan to go, but they still don’t have a confirmed location!
There are a number of ways to look at it.
On the positive side:
The educational system is so good, they know who he really is.
Students know he's a grifter.
Boys won't let their girls anywhere near him.
Girls are listening to their parents about him.
Girls know that only "loose" women are attracted to him.
Girls know that boys know his medical records haven't been released and "you'll never know what you'll catch...".
He sold national security secrets to the Chinese.
On the negative side:
The educational system is so bad, they don't know who he is.
The educational system is so bad, they think the only president in US history is BHO.
All the Dads wouldn’t let their high school daughters go anywhere near the old lecher . . .
It needs to be at cascades again. That was ideal.
Ha ha! It is about time people are catching onto the facade of these fake creeps. He is just icky.
He can’t even discern what is is, why should anyone listen to him. His personal choices prove he has no honor or character—just stupid, immoral people would listen to him.
My favs from the article:
But he began his speech just before 3 p.m. in a high school gym that was less than half full. The appearance was in support of gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero, shown in most polls to be trailing Republican candidate Rick Snyder by 20 percentage points.

Shortly before Clinton took the stage, the Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, urged attendees to leave bleacher seats along one side of the gym and try to fill the area in front of the podium before Clinton began his address.
- - -
And my ultimate fav...
Though polls point to a strong Republican year, “we’re not buying that malarkey,” said U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. “We don’t care about polls.”
Clinton is always late, very late.
He never thinks of other people who are waiting for hours.
I would just leave except for the fact that I would never be there in the first place.
