Obama is having trouble drawing large crowds on the campaign trail. At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, his campaign was forced to move his acceptance speech from the 74,000-seat Bank of America Stadium to the 20,000 Time Warner Cable Arena, citing weather as the excuse. But the media are always eager to help--for example, putting 18,000 people inside a 5,000-seat arena at an Obama event in Milwaukee on Saturday.
The contradiction was first noted by battlegroundwatch.com. Local media, including the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, reported that Obama had addressed "supporters who filled the 5,000-seat BMO Harris Pavilion, along with thousands more who sat in bleachers and stood on the pavement beyond the protection of the roof, even as wind and rain lashed down in the latter moments of the near 30-minute speech."

Can’t get more egregious than this. Sickening. Imagine how the media will behave during the debates. They’re 0bama’s whores.
Look at this comment:
“Drove by it shortly afterward: ghost town. It was at a side stage on the summer fest grounds.”
You are witness to the rebirth of Obama Mark II. We hope you like his new direction.
Man, you think the “news” media are lying now, wait till November 1-5!!!
Imagine how the media will behave during the debates. Theyre 0bamas whores.
I know the communist mainstream media doesn’t care what we think but we need to let them know we are on to them and their leftist love affair with obama. I wish there were someway to make them pay attention financially but that’s not possible. And, you can’t reason with them on ethical terms because that doesn’t exist in their world.
Sign should read: “Puppet Show featuring the Food Stamp President”
"Thousands" of people were at this Obama campaign speech. Or so the media says. One in particular was very wee-wee'd up over the Obamanator.
Just like the 238,000 Pittsburghers who were there in the stands to witness the Immaculate Reception or the 517,000 who personally witnessed Mazeroski’s home run.
I remember hearing this in passing this weekend or even friday I don’t remember and am not going to look up date of event. My point is even though I read here and prefer my info in a truthful light I distincly remember saying to self, dang nice crowd. So the MSM got me is what I’m saying, how many folks have no idea the MSM said 18k in a 5k arena?
Does anyone else find it odd that BO placed a majority of white people as his back drop but the main crowd looks to be a majority black?
