Imagine, if you will, that the POTUS-the Great and Mighty Obama, shows up at a family home, and gives a speech. Then, also imagine that very few people show up, and one of they home-owners later states that she might not even vote for him! Well friends, that very thing happened just recently. Ace has the details…
Hmmm. Probably not. I’ll call it “more Saturday Stupid.”
As leader of the free world President Obama will be used to making speeches to millions of people around the globe.So he might have felt the occasion was a little beneath him yesterday when he stopped off in Reno, Nevada, to deliver an address outside a couple’s garage.
In what could be a disastrous photo opportunity for the President’s campaign, Mr Obama spoke to a handful of people in the crucial swing state.
The president’s 15 minute address outside the home of Paul and Val Keller on Friday afternoon, drew a small audience of neighbours and supporters – though even his hosts said they were not sure if they would vote for him in the coming election.
So, let’s take this situation in light of what we know about Obama’s 2008 campaign. We know that the entire was tightly controlled, and heavily scripted. Crowds were ensured, even if they had to be bused in. Questions were carefully crafted, and answers were rehearsed. Nothing was left to chance. So then, are we to now believe that the most tightly run campaign machine since Stalin is now intentionally leaving things to chance, or was it that troops were requested, and none showed up? Was this family carefully vetted, or did someone in the campaign seriously drop the ball. Either way, this doesn’t bode well for the Obama Campaign. Because, either they are inept, or they they have a serious enthusiasm problem.
When we look at this sad event, as well as the recent failure to fill a college arena, can we say that the Obama campaign is in trouble? Is this a question of the blogoshpere believing the propaganda put out by the MSM and the campaign (or do I repeat myself)? Or, is this a sign of a moribund campaign pretending to be successful and unstoppable?
Time will tell.
