MIAMI, Fla. -- A low-dollar fundraiser here Monday felt like a throwback to the 2008 campaign.
There was the same old soundtrack including City of Blinding Lights by U2, the presidents 2008 anthem -- the enthusiastic organizers and the abundant appeals for supporters to rally behind President Obama.
The one missing element? Overflowing crowds.
Granted, it was a fundraiser, not a free rally. But the empty seats were hard to miss.
The top level of the 2,200-seat concert hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts was entirely empty, as were the seats along the side of the second and third levels.
"The expectation was 900," a Democratic official said, and more than 980 tickets were sold.
Tickets for the Gen 44 event started at $44, the official said.
This is no big deal because my banker buddies and I have plenty
of resources to write the Wee Wee a bigger check if we have to
Well, I can understand the empty seats at the venue in that city. Most of Miami was out watching the victory parade for the Miami Heat and cheering on Lebron James for his pivotal role in claiming the NBA Championship for South Florida. /s
Any word on how many commie metrosexual “men” fainted at this one?
“The reason were here today is because our works not done,” Obama said after hushing the crowd. “
You’re telling me he’s not done destroying the country??
The seats that weren’t empty likely held a lot of local union members being paid to attend.
Since Obama took office;
Unemployment up 25%.
Nations Debt up 35%.
Gas up 104%.
U2’s song is to blame because Joe Scarborough over uses it, especially as he dances in the spandex liberal tights ‘’’’’’ika made for him.
Obie apologist much????
The empty seats were probably purchased by the unions who want Barry to win reelection but don’t want to spend/waste their time listening to him talk.
That animated gif is excellent.

Good! I like it when Libs pi$$ good $ away on hopeless causes. It means there’s less to use doing damage to the world. Before this is over, Soros will be about the only source of funding that O has left. Sure doesn’t seem to me like all his old sources of cash don’t share the philosophy of cutting their own throats anymore.
Just a year and a half of destruction left to go. Je;ll ramp it up as much as he can. Gonna be his downfall... unfortunately, probably the rest of civilization’s as well.
Edit - “He will”
Man, that's cold. Funny but cold nonetheless. :=)
Thanks...goodnight...you've been a great crowd...try our potato wrapped in foil...and tip your waiters and waitresses.
Obama’s handlers won’t let this happen again.
The One must be protected from embarrassment and the Rubes must be fed enough bovine excrement to keep them in line.
Venues will be downsized and empty seats will be stuffed by party loyalists and paid union members.
Only the compliant, Obama rumpswabbing media who know what to report and what not to report will be permitted inside.
lol. "You lie!"
One would like to think there’s still hope for America, and that the legions of cretins, socialists, and racialists who elected the idiot in the White House have had a change of mind, if they even have minds to change.
We’ll have to wait another year to find out.
nobama hates you, hates your family, hates Free America, hates Americans, hates the Constitution and hates the Bill of Rights. nobama is a hate crime foisted upon America. nobama is the Destroyer.
Everything nobama does is intentional.
God help us all.
I used to really like that song.
You have to make sure that whatever venue you pick is crowded. No empty seats. Obviously Hussein's popularity is not as high as they believe.
This is Florida, where the dead will once again come out to
Barry MUST win there, so all the “shovel ready” jobs he
created will be unearthing of graves.
“The expectation was 900,”
So we rented a theater that seats 2200 because we like to lose money and make the boss look bad. Now, reelect us so we can run your life too....
Also interesting to read the comments, not much O support out there.
