How ironic. A lot fewer people also voted for him than were actually recorded.

The DC streets are empty. It’s a turnout debacle. Where are all of Hussein’s supporters?

If one snowflake falls near D.C. during the Second Immaculation, the Obamedia will blame the “blizzard” for the smaller crowd. With the government employees off today on another paid holiday, one would think at least a million warm bodies could turn out.

I look at it this way....each of these suckers probably voted 3 or 4 times, so it’s not a 500,000 crowd...it’s 1.5-2.0M crowd....just like last time...

Yeah, he won.....just like that..

Why would anyone want to hang out with the trash that shows up at Obama events? Brainwashed students, DC beltway bandits, government employee, unions, crazy women, minorities wanting more handouts, etc.

I visited DC last year and stopped at Ben’s Chili Bowl. Nothing special (smoked sausages topped with chili that a Texan would turn his/her nose up at). Ben says that Obama and his family can eats for free (Ben is black).

No one is there and Hussein’s speech is supposed to start in a little over an hour! What a flop!

there is ZERO compelling reason to not have done the full blown inaguration on the 20th. The two-fer by obama is a 130 million dollar waste designed to give government employees one more day off.

Monday would have been hangover day.

Darn, I wish there was a law that required voters to be present at a coronation when their choice won. That would be one way to do a recount. If the number is smaller than the actual votes, then the loosing candidate becomes President.

expect between 500,000 and 700,000 people to attend...

By my count, the number of people is probably more like less than 1000. And that's only because they are forced, generally as a requirement of employment, to be there.

I do expect somewhere between 499,000 and 699,000 drones and zombies and various forms of sycophants to attend as well, though.

hussein’s supporters don’t care about Hussein or his speeches. They are at home still asleep dreaming of their free stuff and sticking it to the “rich” that’s all they really care about.

A friend was watching the Jacksonville (FL) news and it showed crowds who were entirely black boarding the train yesterday to go to DC. I would assume a lot of their tickets were being paid for by their various “churches,” which are essentially nothing but channels used for funneling campaign money out to buy votes.

Obama stole the election!!! His campaign rallies were terrible with half empty high school gyms. Obama has “Lame Duck” posted on his head. The Republicans better wise up and do this imposter, America hater in politically!!! This inauguration is an insult to our great country. No one is watching, his poll numbers stink, and he caters to only those with their hand out for freebies. Sad!!!

Just checked the ucam or whatever it is. Appears to be trillions of fans there. NOT! We had a better turn out at the Gun Appreciation rally in Carson City this past weekend. And unlike these clowns in dc, they all love the constitution and bill of rights. No mess to clean up either. At least the trash will be less for the union sanitation workers to clean up after the slobs leave the mall. And the crowds too.

Molon labe.

Look like the old trick of free cell phones,booze and weed isn’t working this time.
No matter the MSM will say the turn out was in the millions.
Photo shop expected.

Yup. Wait for the overhead shots comparing the last satanical event and this one compared to the Glenn Beck rally. Not to mention the shots of the litter left behind. Maybe the msm won’t do any wide live shots. Just close in shots of several hundred declaring it trillions.

Molon labe.

On Friday night, my wife and I were watching the ABC Chicago affiliate for late night news and they had a video report of all these people getting on trains and busses to DC. I turned to my wife and said, “Other than the reporter, there doesn’t seem to be any honkies headed to DC.”

Probably - and I’m sure most of them didn’t pay for their own tickets, either. But Obama probably wouldn’t have had anybody at his coronation this time around, even blacks, if he hadn’t gotten them free rides.

Canceling events, slashing ticket prices by 50% at the last minute...these aren’t good signs for The Won. But it’s sure encouraging news for the rest of us!

A lot less people have jobs. Therefore a lot less people can afford to go. If the dems had thought this through they would have had buses coming in from Cities such as Chiciago, Detroit and Memphis. GET ON DA’ BUS!
