Skip to comments.Brian Williams: Obama Crowds Down To 5,000 From 50,000 In '08
Posted on 10/25/2012 7:00:21 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Back in 2009, Brian Williams literally bowed to Barack Obama. Today, he's telling like it is from the Obama campaign trail: the size of the crowds is way down from last time around, and the candidate is not the same man he was in '08.
This is a stunning admission from a man seen as deeply in the Obama tank. Williams made his admission to Chuck Todd on today's Daily Rundown. Takeaway line: "palpably obvious to you: this is not '08. These are not the crowds, this is not the candidate."

For Brian Williams of all people to be saying this has got to send a shudder through the Obama camp. Ping to Today show list.
Na na na na....
Na na na na....
Obama also has to go to colleges (young and ignorant) or bring musical acts to get a crowd. There for him or the free show?
Is Barry-O wearing a pink bracelet, or is somebody else picking his nose for him?
Stick a fork in him, he’s done. There is nowhere near the kind of enormous enthusiasm Obama had on his side in 2008.
And that why every poll is way off since they use a 2008 turnout model.
This election won’t be like 2008 at all and Brian Williams just gave the game away!
That’s got to be a real blow to his, very sensitive, ego.
He’s just someone that we used to know, I guess...
I sounds like the Obama tank is running on empty
Hope and change has become piSS and moan.
Facing reality. They all want to have jobs after THE ONE is thrown out of office. But we already know who they are and what they stand for.
The Obamabot media is deserting the badly sinking Obama/Biden ship. Shucks, that idiot, Joe Biden can’t muster a thousand supporteres at just about every stop!!!
The media is not exactly climbing out of the tank, but, they are sticking their pinkies out so when obammy is gone they can point to their even-handedness when raking Romney over the coals.
Did you note how he hedged on the 5,000 number... my instincts tell me the actual crowd size he is referring to is probably more like 1,500 to 3,000.
Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can't move...
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.
Just when I'd stopped opening doors,
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours.
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines...
No one is there.
Don't you love farce?
My fault, I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want...
Sorry, my dear!
And where are the clowns
Send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here.
My daughter was only about 2 when she learned that song off the radio and began belting it out from her car seat.
You didn't do the whole old fashion who what when where why gum shoe reporter thing.
You were in the tank for this guy for 4 years..
I don't watch you stupid show and little of your network.
I fired you eons ago, they guy @ 1600 Penn? I fire him on 11/6.
The news divisions will be the next downsizing victims post 11/6, America doesn't trust you Sir.
Brush up your Resume....
The parties over, Gilligan!
Obama That I Used To Know - Gotye Parody
Oh PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!
Rush/Hannity/Beck: play this over and over!
Fox: show this over and over!
Team Romney: make a commercial from this!
Brian Williams must be in the WOOD SHED now, and the Lames are going to try to forget this ever happened!
BTW: did anyone notice how F.Chuck Todd was trying to get him to move on at the very end by going “Yeah”, but then Brian closed it up anyways...
Obama and Biden were in Dayton on Tuesday and the local media has studiously avoided giving an estimate of crowd size in it’s reports.
The venue chosen required parking downtown, difficult to access and expensive, then hopping a shuttle bus to the venue. The photos posted on the newspaper’s website showed three buses with perhaps 30 people in line.
In another photo, it appeared that a mere three portable toilets were provided for the crowd. The venue itself would not hold more than 1000 people comfortably. It is also the local homosexual hangout.
I would like a defeat of the democrat party that is so crushing that it will be politically impossible to have another democrat party elected to office. IOW the democrat party goes the way of the bull moose, whigs, tory, or commies.
Another lib smells defeat and begins to move to the right side of history.
Sadly I have to say that I am not afraid that he becomes suicidal.
But I am not wishing for it.
“It is also the local homosexual hangout.”
Is he going back to his roots?
That’s just too awesome. Two year old daughters singing in the car loudly is one of life’s great pleasures!!
That is because, after 4 years, people realize those Greek styrofoam columns from 2008 have more substance than the guy who used them has.
After all the grandiose rhetoric, the bellicose speechifying, the promises, Obama spends more time playing golf than working in the Oval Office.
So how many does the misus on the trail draw?
They kept saying ‘our beloved first lady’!!!
So? Where is the truth teller?
That is a stunning piece of music from a true genius.
(It is also timely......)
One thing I like about Newsbusters is that they publish transcripts with their vids, I can read and comprehend a lot faster than the vid or audio and that way i don’t have to hear the annoying sounds of Obama or his Amen Corner in the media. I wish Hoft over at Gateway would do the same.
LOL MY thought too. That park has such a reputation, I’m still puzzled by it’s choice.
Heck, I was priviliged to be part of a huge crowd downtown at Courthouse Square when Reagan spoke years ago.
