Skip to comments.´They´re starting to seriously worry´: Concern growing about low turn- out at Obama inauguration
Posted on 01/06/2013 9:01:41 PM PST by Nachum
Crowds may have flocked to the National Mall to see President Obama make history in 2009, but the team behind the president´s 2013 inauguration bash later this month are bracing themselves for a ton of empty seats. The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won´t be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol o watch Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama´s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, January 21.

I’d like to go....If only to boo through a bullhorn.
If Obama can gin up millions of votes to fill voting booths, I think he can probably find a few more Democrats to fill inauguration venues.
Free iphone for all will get the leechers in the bleachers.
Will he be using Lincoln’s Koran this time or his own?
I literally would not go for a million dollars.
Don’tcha just know it? Oh yeah. You “won” the election, Papa Mubama. Thaaat’s the ticket. Everybody loooves you.
Loved the comments.
He only needed 2 or 3 to generate thousands of votes. Multiplied by a thousand you get ....
Maybe people are more aware than we know. If this is true, I have genuine hope for our Country.
i-Obamaphones for all attendees: “You sign up. If you’re... If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability...”
He will cancel his performance if the venue isn’t sold out. It’s in his contract, listed under “narcissistic demands”
What does it matter if 1 or 1 million show up? That won’t change the election results!
Much harder to manufacture bodies in seats than it is to manufacture votes from voters.
Aside from the the taker crowd is not gonna show up for the show in the cold if there is nothing in it for them.
Exactly!! And, agree that they won't show unless something's in it for them...like more free stuff!
Might as well watch “Snapped”...it’s the same premise. Stolen election and a nut bag who kills an American Ambassador, Navy Seals and Military personnel (Benghazi). Next it’s Baby Boomers with the Death Panels via Obamacare.
SCJ Roberts go it right....the SCOTUS isn’t responsible for who is elected but they sure could have kept it balanced.....some of us who aren’t the 47% still believe in the balance of power, Sir.
Got this in email:
In the coming New Year, 2013, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.
This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.
....The other involves a groundhog.
Let’s see if they pick up their garbage this time around.
“What do you do for a living?”
It’s a new verb. I disability, you disability, he disabilities.
“To disability, or not to disability. That is the question.”
This is the Obama legacy.
Lets see if they pick up their garbage this time around.
No, he has to stay in Washington.
Unless they are paid to attend this event.
After 6 Nov, I fail to see the relevance.
Obama will have no trouble filling up the ballrooms. Filling the street with 1 million supporters might be a different story but not insurmountable for the irresistible ground game that we saw in November.
My point is, and has been since I was bitch slapped on election night, that we do not know what the hell we are talking about. The most obvious self delusions had to do with assessments of crowd size and their implications. I have been imploring conservatives since election night to get very serious about finding out exactly what happened to us and why by having resort to real data.
We had better find out, as just one example, how to fill a venue and how to run a ground game. We had better be humble about it and we had better not any longer soothe our anxieties with bluster and ignorance.
It is not just a question of cleaning out the Rinos, it is a question of installing competents to execute the mechanics of election campaigns. It is a question of building a party from the grassroots up based on reality rather than hope and conservatives feel good shibboleths.
We cannot even begin to imagine the cronyism and dependency the Democrats have infused into the country. Can we really believe that Democrats cannot pull a few strings, call in some IOUs, promise more of the public trough, show a little ankle, and fill a venue? They are buying elections with our own money and we do not even know how they did it.
No matter, they will have an empty seat at the inauguration ball, all is well.
“My point is, and has been since I was bitch slapped on election night, that we do not know what the hell we are talking about.”
Too true; the biggest problem is underestimating the strength of the Dem propaganda machine, and the lack of one to get our own messages out.
Soon you will start to hear the excuse that since the private inauguration ceremony on Sunday, Jan 20, will be televised for all to see, there aren’t as many interested in the public ceremony on Jan 21 and that’s the reason for the lower turnout.
Time to get out the BUSSES!!
Karma...just maybe karma will figure in. An a anthropogenic globull worming BLIZZARD would be great!
If we all pray, perhaps there will be a blizzard or a major rain/hail storm right over Washington on that fatal day in U.S. history. Once again this nation is being chipped away, piece by piece as the imposter gets sworn in.
“After our experience in November can anyone ever again take these crowd assessments stories seriously?
If Obama can gin up millions of votes to fill voting booths, I think he can probably find a few more Democrats to fill inauguration venues.”
Well said Nathanbedford, in the scheme of things it really does not matter if he gets one or ten million to attend his inaugaration. He is a despot who, along with his cronies, have destroyed America and that is all that matters to me.
To rephrase an old cliche:
“What if they had an inauguration, and no one showed up?”
Buyer’s remorse, isn’t it sweet?
It is, but these buyers do not have the intelligence to have remorse. The only things they have is stupidity, blind rage, and jealously. Parasites, American haters,and self hating Whites take those away and obama would only be another turd in the Chicago sewer. But unfortunately for America, he is in the White House.
The blooming idiocy of a cult.
The blooming idiocy of a cult.
The blooming idiocy of a cult.
At the Dem convention there was a last minute change of venue due to low ticket sales.
The Obama victory party in Chicago used a small venue to offset projected lack of attendees.
The West Lawn of the Capital and the National Mall are an entirely different story. Of course the could just move the inauguration to the East side under the auspices of having Obama sand where Lincoln gave his speech.
The only way they can get people to attend the inauguration is drag a few kilos of weed down the street.
<><> David Axelrod will perform the Mexican Hat Dance on the Capitol stepa.
<><> Sandra Fluck is giving out free BJ's.
<><> Valerie Jarrett (born in Iran) is holding a Film Festival---featuring the American Embassy aflame in Benghazi.
<><> Michele Omama is gvivng out free wash and set vouchers for her fave Chicago beauty parlor, "Curl Up And Dye."
Mmmmmmm.........that sounds an awful lot like the "People's Temple." Rev Jim Jones promised a "better life, hope and change.....and diversity." Tolerant and compassionate Rev Jim Jones brought lotsa Kool-aid (and cases" of cyanide) for the diverse crowd that blindly followed him to a place from which there was no escape.
THE OBAMA WRAP
These people are even scarier in triumph, when they've clearly mocked democracy and stole the election. America has witnessed the consequences of a generation inculcated with moral relativity and situation ethics. The ghost of Saul Alinsky lurks behind M/M Obama, Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Anita "Mao" Dunn, Valerie whatsherface, and the rest of the Ohaha ilk.
They clearly see themselves as "deconstructionists"----savagely committed to tearing down America's traditions. Every manaical official govt act is dedicated to chipping away at the bulwark of American freedoms.
The Obamanations are a virulent anti-American plague of religion haters.......vacant, surly Me-First humanoids who worship at The Church of Whatever Works For Me. Cadres of self-absorbed punks squatting in govt are clearly disturbed---obsessed with religious cleansing and kicking so/con Repubs to the curb.
The Ohaha savages duped the citizenry, led us over a multi-trillion dollar deficit cliff, into massive corrupt bailouts, and atrocities like amnesty.
Their motto: "Everything For Us--Nothing For You."
That same generation inculcated with moral relativity and situation ethics has segued into The Entitlement Generation---better known as "Pay Me--I'm a Victim.
We need to remember that the Obamanoids are ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others and no remorse, anti-social psychopaths who recognize no moral boundaries--aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences to others.
Paraphrasing Saul Alinsky----the author of evil anti-religious satanism......"they do not have a fixed truth -- truth to them is relative and changing..... they are free from the shackles of dogma."
Which I do not believe was present for Reagan's inauguration.
But maybe you know something I don't T.N.
