Team Obama on Pitiful Crowds: ‘We are intentionally limiting crowd size at rallies’

Posted by on Aug 19, 2012 at 8:56 am

Don’t believe your lying eyes. Nobody is coming to see these losers on purpose.

Can it get any more pathetic than this?

“We have plenty of time for big rallies,” a campaign spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said between the rallies on Thursday. “Our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters and the smaller and medium-size events are the best venue to accomplish that because the president can closely engage with the crowd.

”Big rallies are expensive, especially given the logistical and security challenges for a president as opposed to a mere United States senator. And Obama campaign operatives, both at the Chicago headquarters and in swing states where Mr. Obama recently has stumped, say the campaign intentionally limits crowds by restricting tickets. The reason is to allow the president to better connect with supporters, aides say.

To better connect with people, by telling them they didn’t build that, or that they’re racist. Easier with a tiny crowd, we suppose. Four years ago a football stadium could hardly contain the awesome crows, Greek columns and his massive ego. Now he’s discovered frugality and intimacy.

    I imagine the teleprompter is there so that aides will know what Obama will say next also. He, himself. certainly doesn’t need it.

    Obama does not need donations either. He has had more fundraisers than any other President only because he knows how much his many supporters enjoy the feeling that they are participating in his coming victory. The fundraisers are his way of showing love and compassion for all the little people (millionaires and billionairs).

    Kinda off topic, but, might want to be careful with some of the links: there is a nude picture of “Roxanne Pallett’s Lake Placid sex tape” in the “You might like” section.

    Anyhow, I wonder if Team O will request people wear the same color shirts as the seats at Bank of America stadium, which would make it harder to actually count the empty seats.

    OMG….OBAMA is INTENTIONALLY limiting people at his rallies ? Has he went off gone totally insane that he actually thinks ANYONE, even the stupid lefties to believe this crap? Obama is a pompous self serving jerk off who relishes being King and having thousands of adoring fans around him . I am starting to think the people who actually do come were picked from the homeless shelters or off the streets and given a free lunch for fake support. This man has no one left. Forget the polls, this man doesn’t have a prayer. Yo ‘Bama, enjoy the heavily packed pro American rallies of Romney/Ryan…….and remember it was what you had in 2008 and you will never get back. Such a joy it brings my spirit to be a witness of this mans fall.

    “Big rallies are expensive, especially given the logistical and security challenges for a president as opposed to a mere United States senator.” — Well, big rallies can’t be *that* expensive if Obama can host $40,000-a-plate fundraisers with massive support from liberal Hollywood.
