Anybody Else Remember How
In 2008 The
Seemingly Couldn't Stop Itself
From Gushing Over The SIZE
Of The Crowds Obama Was
Drawing & Comparing
Them To McCain's?
Whatever happened to that? Anybody know?
Anybody know why this DMC/MSM dog isn't barking about crowd sizes any more?
If so, feel free to comment.
UPDATE! Gateway Pundit has the numbers. Crowd for Romney rally tonight was around 30,000. Meanwhile Obama's biggest crowd of the day was....4,000 in Springfield, OH:
In fact, Obama drew 2,800 and 3,800 at 2 other rallies today giving him a one day total of....10,600 (est.). Or less than half of what Romney drew to this one rally tonight.
UPDATE II: Now that the final GOTV in the swing states is underway, Obama For America had an event today in Cleveland Ohio with Stevie Wonder that drew........200 people.
"I Just Called To Say Where Are You?"
Of course, OFA Ohio had an excuse when the local reporter asked why so few people turned out:
They claim they only notified people 30 minutes before hand this event was being held. As someone who's been involved in GOTV efforts, this is beyond epic fail. Either the campaign botched this badly, or they are trying to pass off a REMINDER sent out over Twitter as the 1st time anyone was supposed to know about this event.
You don't set up a Get-Out-The-Vote event with a celebrity and then wait until 30 minutes before to let the public know about it BY SENDING OUT A SINGLE MESSAGE ON TWITTER. The report makes it clear many of these people were drawn by the sound of the live music.
UPDATE III: More on those rally numbers from yesterday from the key battleground state of Ohio, where both campaigns are in a final last pitch attempt at Get Out The Vote efforts:
Romney drew 30,000 to his rally last night:
If you watched the rally live on CSPAN it was amazing. CSPAN then showed Obama's own rally that night, also being held in Ohio where he drew........2,800.
Note this little bit of sophistry by the Dispatch reporter: Obama spoke to 2,800 supporters at the Franklin County Fairgrounds, while that loser Mitt Romney only managed to draw a crowd of 2,000 to his 'rally' that wasn't even a rally, it was an event held inside a factory.
Nowhere in the article does the reporter admit while Obama was having his GOTV night time rally at the Fairgrounds with less than 3,000 people Romney was finishing up addressing 30,000 people in a county far less populous than the one Obama was in.
UPDATE IV: Now the MSM is back to just inventing crowd numbers for Obama:
Yep. Reporting a crowd of 'over 20,000' in an arena that seats 12,580.
