Dwindling crowd sizes or “intimate” campaign tour?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

As someone who has spent almost their entire term in office campaigning for the next election, President Obama is more than aware that winning an election comes down to the amount of people you can get to rally behind you. It’s easy for people to say that they’ll be supporting a candidate come November, getting them out of their house and to the polls is an entirely ballgame.

This morning on radio, Glenn brought up the stark different between the people coming out to Barack Obama’s campaign stops. While Romney and Ryan are gathering crowds of 15,000 to 20,000, the amount of people coming out to see the President is becoming so noticeably low that even the media is beginning to talk about it. 

Is it possible that the man who won the 2008 election, gathering giant crowds throughout his former campaign could be intentionally organizing smaller campaign stops? Well, that’s what they want you to believe.

Apparently the Obama camp is claiming that they’re trying to “limit the crowd size.” 

“It’s like the aging rock star that goes on the ‘intimate’ tour,” Stu joked.

That’s a hard line to buy from the Obama campaign, considering most people limit crowds at events by selling tickets. These are FREE events that people aren’t showing up for. Limiting crowd size at a free event seems like a very odd way to fire up your base. 

Plus, who doesn’t want to watch Joe Biden speak? That’s comedy gold.

“I would think people would come just for entertainment factor. If you get your news from “Entertainment Tonight,” is there anything more entertaining that Joe Biden? Seriously? But now they’ve pulled him off the trail,” Glenn said before playing the most recent ad from Karl Rove on Biden.

Is it really a good idea for conservatives to start swinging at Joe Biden? Probably not, he may be the biggest ally conservatives have in the White House.

“Let’s not get him dropped from the ticket,” Glenn joked. “He’s amazing.”

“We need him right now,” Pat added.

So apparently the most bi-partisan figure in the campaign is turning out to be Joe Biden. A man both parties can put their support being, albeit for extremely different reasons and with wildly different intensions.

Regardless of Biden’s presence it’s hard to believe he has anything to do with the amount of people showing up at Obama’s campaign stops.

It’s also unlikely that President Obama would intentionally go from drawing this size crowd

to this size…

    Dwindling crowd size as his own base runs for the hills, and others who fell under his spell are seeing the real truth of the man. The only ‘intimate’ part is the fanatical followers, or those who are coerced into attending by the union bosses.

    Understand clearly, Obama is coming apart at the seams, and is now to the point of desperation and complete insanity. He is past unhinged and capable of doing anything.

      ….even george soros is losing faith in his puppet-hussein-obama

      • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        I don’t think its Soros losing faith in his puppet; Soros plan for the US has been a ‘controlled descent’ in Soros’s own words. Obama has well served that purpose and I see Soros is soon to dump him for another to come up in turn, expect in 2016, Van Jones will be on the scene.

      So, with the low turnout by the crowds, snow, do you thing that will reflect in the number

      of votes cast for the man?   Last I heard, ”they” said it would be a close election.

      Of course, if the usual Chicago style politics is put into play, there may be more people

      voting than there are people registered to vote.

      It is absolutely essential that we keep up the pressure on this Illegal Alien and his Socialist supporters.  Nothing short of absolute defeat is acceptable.  If this bum gets reelected, this entire nation is doomed.

    There came a day, when before the gathered masses, in person or on television or the internet, when the god-king himself came forth; brilliant white is his clothing, stern his gaze and grim is his expression. Fires dance in his eyes, displaying the malevolence and madness for all to see, as is the mask he wears, the symbol of his new positon.

    A question is asked of him, a simple one…

    “I am Mr Obama, God-King of the Nation…”

    A figure, decked out in the robes of a prince or magistrate of a high court beckons for silence from the crowds; with a silent sweep of his hand, two men come forth and adjust the clothing that is upon the shoulders of the Great One…

    “Make sure the straps and the bite mask are secure, he is still mad…” the robed figure says to all…”Mr Obama, you are to be commited, at the order of this court, to the home for the criminally insane for the remainder of your natural life…”

    Obamas eyes flare at the sacrilidge commited against him – in his own mind as the two guards secure his straight jacket even more, and check the bindings on his mask and the dolley to which he is tied are secure and strong.

    To his side, another such figure bound speaks:

    “You just had to go and declare yourself a god-king did you not my child?”

    “Mr Soros,” says the justice, “shut up, your bound over for war crimes, as are Reid and Pelosi and Holder, and anyone else we can finally catch.”

      EXCELLENT STORY.  Too bad we haven’t been able to do this yet. 

      Lets CLEAN HOUSE of all the Socialists in our State and Federal governments in November. 

  • Adamant

    It’s apparent that the appeal of this guy is dwindling rather dramatically. I can hardly wait until he is escorted from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He had his own destiny to make, and he squandered it on foolish escapades. Where has it got him? He has nothing good to report or show for his efforts, so his campaign is one of smears and lies and popularity with an ever shrinking segment of the population. 

    This is what happens to people that achieve a modicum of success by lying, cheating and stealing their way to it. His house of cards has fallen flat.

      yeah when we escort hussein-obama out of our whitehouse we will need to call the exterminator to get rid of all the other bugs…the ..rats ..fleas ..flies islam..all that he brought with him…its almost like the seven plagues that came with pharoh..when Moses came to set his people free…get him out before the barackalypse!!

        Perhaps Obama just needs a pair of magic underwear,

        Mitt needs to show 10 years of tax returns so we can all learn how to tax evade like the “big boys” do.

    They can’t even call these stops half full or half empty, compared to the campaigns of 2008. Typical of liars that they are, they will make up smoke shields any way they can. However, if you listen to the media, Obama is on his way to victory, supported by all the blind lefties who listen.

  • Anonymous

    These crowds are hand picked by Obama. He has the whole thing rehearsed. Once it backfired. He went to a backyard and gathered what he thought were supporters. One person started saying they voted for him but wanted to know why he let her down. It didn’t go so well for him. He was a little surprised because he screened everyone and everyone that voted for him was allowed in. He did not expect her to start asking difficult questions. I would say his ego got the best of him that day.

    Would it be possible to have some grammar standards in these articles?  
    “As someone who has spent almost their entire term in office campaigning for the next election, President Obama…”

    The pronoun should be ‘his’ and not ‘their.’  That jumped out because it is the first sentence. This is supposed to be professionally written. Does anyone proofread here? Three errors occur in the first paragraph.

    I’m not a nitpicker. These errors are jarring to read and affect the credibility of an organization.

    an entirely ballgame??????

    I suspect it’s composed with voice dictation software (see paragraph 2, different vs difference), but there is no excuse not to follow behind and correct errors.

    I believe this isat the root of BO’s problems.

    The Black and Hispanic constituencies in revolt:
    1.       Chicago’s south and west sides are in open revolt over jobs and competition with illegal immigrants and they are disproportionately suffering much higher unemployment, as much as 50% among the young and time unemployed for example.
    2.       Legal Hispanic voters are stirring over the same issues.
    Obama is clearly on a path to grant amnesty to the Congressional Budget Office’s estimated 35-40 million illegals here and this obvious attraction will spur millions more to enter illegally.
    No one believed that the present amnesty of 600,000 “kids” and sure enough the estimates are now above 1.2 million. All of whom can now seek jobs legally.  The present estimate of illegals is 15 million working and 30-35 million partners & kids.
     The macabre joke is that Obama (not businesses shipping jobs off shore) is the outrageous real culprit in CREATING US UNEMPLOYMENT! He is growing the pool of those struggling to find work not to mention extending the time to find work just as fast as he can! Obama is lying about all he has done and is doing to cut unemployment

    • Anonymous

      Writer,  statistics bare out your remarks on the sad unemployment figures of those folks

      who are minorities.  Around 17-18% (or perhaps more) among Hispanics and for the

      young blacks, it runs over 22%.   If I were in those groups, I would revolt too!

    Laura Ingraham made an excellent point today.

    The most poignant question everyone has on their mind regarding Joe Biden — including some on the left — is he mentally capable of effectively running the office of POTUS if something were to happen to Obama?  That has to be very much a concern with every American in the US.  And the answer that most people and pundits have is no, Joe Biden would not at all be capable of running the executive branch effectively, which everyone would have to agree would be a very bad thing for this country.

    Laura then asked, so why would Obama then want to keep Joe, given this obviously negative opinion most Americans have of him?   Because he believes it would hurt his chances of winning re-election, to which most people and pundits also agree.

    So proof positive Barack Obama is more concerned with doing what’s best for him than doing what’s best for America, should he win.

    Ah, yes.  I can picture it now.    “Why are you crying, Lacey?  I thought you were going to go

    and hear the President speak.”   Through her tears, Lacey says in a quavering voice, “I did go

    to where he was supposed to be speaking, but I got turned away.  They told me he all ready had

    250 people in attendance and they wanted to keep the number low so they could have it more

    intimate.”   Lacey’s friend tries to console the sobbing young woman.     

    Can you say this looks and smells like B.S.?      Lotta spinning going around!

    I am waiting to see & hear the debate between Biden and Ryan. I sure hope that Ryan doesn’t pull any punches on his opponent. 

    Also waiting to see movie “2016”. 

    Now that Obama has a record of failure, a record of attacking our First and Second Amendment rights, a record of deliberately trying to destroy our national economy, and a record of bypassing Congress on immigration reform (which we do NOT need), and a record of using the radicals in the EPA and Dept of Interior to PREVENT job creation, who in their right mind would even consider supporting him or any of his Socialist supporters? 

    Our Federal government is in desparate need of an overhaul. We need to pass legislation in the form of Amendments to our constitution that will PREVENT any and all future attacks by an Unamerican President against our Constitution.  Make these kinds of attacks on our Constitution a CAPITAL CRIME punishable by removal from office, arrest and prosecution, regardless of the position – office held. 

    Reduce all Department / Agency budgets by 10% immediately. Force appointees to do their jobs, consolidate needs and reduce head count in agencies. 

    RESTRICT use of Presidential Directives and Executive Orders to NATIONAL SECURITY issues ONLY.  Do not allow use for any political reasons.  No bypassing of Congress on ANYTHING. 

    BALANCE THE BUDGET. In case of a VERIFYABLE national emergency, CONGRESS will have the power to allow additional expenditures to perform all necessary functions to respond to the emergency.

    I fear that he will try to do all he can before he leaves office.  Prayerfully, it is something that can be undone.  We have to get out and vote and change this election.  We just don’t know what Obama is going to do to win this election.  You know the unions will do just about anything and everything to keep him in office.  Scary!!!  VOTE!!!  Maybe the Lord will bless us just one more time and help to get that out of our White House….

    I found this might be a blessing that Obama elected as the President. He bluntly displays how bad and how ridiculous that a socialism is and reveals the evil side of communism that hide behind the cover of socialism. It could be much worse that if Hillary elected as the President!
