President Barack Obama's Remarks at the Ready to Go Rally in Columbus, Ohio (Weird Self-Intro Video)
You Tube ^ | Saturday, May 5, 2012 | "Barack"

Posted on 05/05/2012 7:21:21 PM PDT by kristinn

This is a turning point for this campaign. Starting today with these rallies, we're entering a new stage -- and we don't intend to slow down until the last voter weighs in on November 6th.

(Note by Kristinn: The beginning of the 39-minute video of today's campaign rally featutes a weird and decidedly unpresidential backstage self-introduction by "Barack" as he calls himself. As he is introduced from onstage, backstage Obama speaks (reads a teleprompter) to a camera exhorting his supporters to work for his reelection. The pep talk is timed to end as the onstage introduction finishes. Obama ends by saying, "Let's go get'em. It's game time!," as he starts to strut his way into the arena and toward the stage.)

I am happy to know he did not pack ‘em in to the site. Either his people are idiots and assumed it would fill, or they were not able to do it. Either way, this is an ominous sign for his re-elect chances ;)

He always sounds like a high school cheer leader, not a president.

OSU is still in session. They should have been able to fill the place up with OWSers.

Snapshot of the crowd. Not too full to begin with. Take out the paid attendees, union organizers and presstitutes, and it seems safe to say that at this stage, the Community Organizer isn't much of a draw.

There seems to be differing estimates of the crowd which showed up. The stadium was maybe 50-75% filled, not an overflow crowd by any means, but still indicative of ardor not completely extinguished.

We STILL have the blind, the lame, the crazy, the old ladies and little children showing up in force, though they are maybe not a majority in any town. But are we to accord them moral authority vastly in excess of their numbers? I think not, but emotion is such a fickle thing.

Not yet a slam-dunk for Mitt Romney, no matter what Dick Morris may be saying. But if Obama loses Ted Turner, then the bottom is pretty close.

Even NYT isn’t cutting Obama nearly as much slack as they were.

Somewhere in a mid-Manhattan precinct late on November 6th...

The Newser's crowd estimates are probably about as accurate as their push poll results at this stage. Here's a close-up of the enthusiastic audience in the upper deck. Doesn't look to me like the joint was 50-75 percent full. Not by a long shot.

When he walked out they played “City of Blinding Lights” by U2. Either they used the song to cover cheering or they needed something to make up for the lack of cheers.

Nope. Came from one of the social media sites, @BarackObama, and was supposedly a live shot by one of the Libtards in attendance.

That 50-75% figure was probably for the lower deck, with the emphasis on the low end. I would have to assume they filled the sections near the sage for good TV then let the crowd spread out.

The arena seats 20K, my best guess is that Obama got somewhere between 5-7.

It is hard to watch this man pander to the lowest denominators of society. I am embarrassed for America and for what he has done to degrade our highest office.

“Either way, this is an ominous sign for his re-elect chances”

I agree; I believe his late-night minstrel shows just reinforced a growing perception that Obama is in fact “not cool” to a lot of his prior supporters.

What a lovely, peaceful, inoffensive shade of aqua they’ve chosen for their signs, arena lighting, and Michelle’s dress. Same color as UN helmets. I feel so peaceful I’m slipping into a coma. Since they can’t win on issues, they’re trying the subliminal approach.

The only person the GOP could have picked who would lose to Obama is Romney. Just saying.

That is why the GOP ordained him. He is supposed to lose to obama.The Elite Republican Party members see obama’s re-election as away to kill the Conservative movement. They, likethe Democrat Party do not give a damn about the Country. They, again, like the Democrat Party are only interested in power and control.
