Skip to comments.New Obama panic: Romney crowd sizes
Posted on 08/13/2012 1:56:04 PM PDT by Red Badger
The recent frantic email theme to supporters from Team Obama about Mitt Romney's run-away fundraising successes has been expanded to the crowd size gap between the thousands who rushed out over the weekend to see Romney and new running mate Rep. Paul Ryan and the hundreds who cheered on President Obama.
The big worry expressed in a new email from Obama's Chicago HQ: "The Republican base is energized." The reason: Romney attracted 15,000 at a rally over the weekend.
I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday's Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.
There's no spinning that number. It's a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.
And that's not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney's campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base.
We've got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters -- starting right now.
Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama's agenda >>
Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: "I love him...He's going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board..."
We can't let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:

Biden draws 600 in NC
Size matters. ;0)
Must've been in a cemetery...
Their biggest voting block.
Mmmm ... fear and worry fundraising ... my favorite ... tastes like chicken ...
You’d think that in NC they could afford more free cigarettes...........
LOL...He's preaching to the choir!...they all will vote for Obama anyway!
It was a pretty grave turnout...
Wonder if Zero knows they’re not even there because they like Romney?
They’re There because they’re Disgusted with Zero himself.
LOL...He's preaching to the choir!...they all will vote for Obama anyway!....its the democratic base!
They’ll be bussing all the UAW and SEIU robots next
Biden is all emotion and Ryan is all facts, figures and numbers. The VP Debate shouldn’t even be close.
Romney & Ryan have stolen the “buzz”.
Obama’s crowds sound forced.
What these folks may be realizing is that Palin and Ryan may turn out to be the one-two punch that will defeat "hope and change" and replace that fraudulent and counterfeit invitation to slavery with the only authentic idea which ever has brought freedom, opportunity, and prosperity to a nation.
Palin's fresh "common-sense" approach caused enthusiasm, and Ryan's unique ability to articulate America's founding ideas will bring real "change" to the understanding of voters. Their combined appeal will help to engender a new sense of individual worth and the "People-over-government" idea which gave birth to America.
Instead of falling into the so-called "progressive" tactic of dividing people by ethnic background, level of income, etc., Paul Ryan enables Romney's campaign to articulate the singularly American idea that Creator-endowed life, rights and liberties belong to every individual, and that those ideas are, therefore, unalienable and are not grants from government, nor are they available for proscription by government.
That idea, if articulated clearly, will be understood by each citizen who catches the Founders' meaning, to be applicable to that citizen, and to work to that citizen's benefit to provide opportunity and freedom.
For decades, the "progressive movement" has sought to eradicate that idea from textbooks and public discourse, because the power of that idea ennobles, dignifies, and causes individuals to resist the appeal of those who wish to enslave them.
The locals were told there was a free circus in town headlined by an old comedian. Several brought their families.
***Theyll be bussing all the UAW and SEIU robots next***
I know where they can hire some UMW coal miners, who lost their jobs, to root for Obama.
Oh That’s evil! ;-D
Has Baraq had his POTUS bus fleet out for a ride lately?
What, no mention of the 10,000 plus at Manassas, VA on Saturday? (I was there.) Oh, and my wife was shopping in Leesburg a couple of weeks ago when Zero was there and she saw very few people at the Zero rally. And these are both Northern Virginia locales where Zero’s base is supposed to be strong.
Biden draws 600 in NC...
2008 when he was running in the democratic primary he had 1% of the Democratic primary vote before he dropped out.
Not exactly a favorite.
Yes, we’ll know the union gangs have been there because there will be heaps of trash left behind when they leave.
“Please donate $3 to energize the Obama base”
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Palin drew similar crowds, yet McCain lost NC. It was a squeaker, but a loss. Unless unprecedented numbers show up (say 50K), this isn’t anything to write home about.
They should make the Guantanamo prisoners attend Biden’s appearances. You’ll get way more info from the prisoners than the waterboarding would ever provide.
Absolutely. The Illegal is the father of the Tea Party.
First Chic Filet and now the R&R rallies. Let the landslide begin!
“Biden draws 600 in NC”
“Must’ve been in a cemetery...”
Now that is funny!!!!
I can smell the fear....
Yep, this is a wave of the “Chick-Fil-A Effect”...
The left poked us in the eye one too many times.
(Plus, I think every human on the face of this planet viscerally knows that something big and dreadful is imminent.)
Today’s theme WRT Biden et al: “small batons of questionable meat...”
If someone else’s hard work has to provide you with something, then it is not a right, it is charity.
If someone orders you to provide someone with something, then it is not a charity, it is theft.........
The UNalienable definition hasn’t been enforced in our country. It means that not only can these rights not be taken away from you (INalienable), you are further incapable of even voluntarily giving up those rights.
Panic time for Obama/Biden.
I am not exactly a contributor to anything. The wife says we donated to George W, once. As interested as I am in politics my feeling through thick and thin has been my few bucks were not going to make the difference.
Yesterday, after the Ryan selection, I responded to a Romney email and donated. I think I will do that a few more times between now and November.
It wasn’t just Ryan, I knew that defeating Obama is an absolute priority to save this greatest nation on Earth.
David (Hedley) Axlerod to Barak (the Guv) Obama:
“We’ve got to do something to protect our phony baloney jobs!!!”
True but here's the big difference: at the time Obama was drawing big crowds too. Remember how he would fill every venue he spoke at and was able to fill Mile High Stadium? The 2012 version of Obama is vastly, vastly different he couldn't fill Mile high today. Hell there's speculation he won't be able to fill BOA Stadium. Secondly, in 2008 McCain by himself was barley able to fill anything, it was only Palin that was able to draw in the big crowds. Today in FL hundreds of people were turned away from an event in which only Romney was speaking, another good sign. When your side is outdrawing the other side you're doing pretty damn good. If Romney was only drawing half empty rooms like Obama did yesterday I would be hitting the panic button, I'm not doing that now because it wouldn't make sense.
That’s a three dollar bill they’ll be wanting, eh?
They thought it was a soup line.
Not only was it a cemetery but they also paid the members who attended $100.00.
They wanted to pay them $50.00 but there were no takers.
Iowa is considered the heart of the agriculture community. If he can persuade Iowa voters, then maybe Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri will follow suit..........
Plus, he probably expects to get huge crowds, ala 2008, when he began his campaign on the ground. He needs those crowds to get sustenance for his ego..........
LOL. The chance of Obama winning KS is ZERO. People here hate that bastard. He’ll be lucky to pull 35%.
Except Zero now has a record and it stinks. Similar sized crowds were showing up for Zero back then, but they’re nowhere close now. The Rs are more fired up about this election than the Ds.
