Obama a ‘Little Flat’ in Denver
Seriously, did you notice, that Team Obama tried to sell 750 tickets for the venue, and barely sold 500. OK, there is a trend developing, see it?
The New York Times says the speech fell a little flat. “A little”, what about the near empty venue, what about that?
9News reports that the President is expected to arrive at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora Co. and is scheduled to speak at 2:15 p.m. at Abraham Lincoln High School. A limited amount of tickets were available beginning at 11 a.m. on Monday.
“The crowd was obviously supportive and glad to see him, though the room at times felt a little flat and Potus seemed a little tired after a long day that’s not even close to being over,” pool reporter Peter Baker of the New York Times wrote, according to The Weekly Standard.
On top of being “a little flat,” the fundraiser was also a little sparse, at least according to expectations. The Weekly Standard explains:
Moreover, the campaign announced that the president “[would] headline a reception for 700 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. General admission tickets started at $500 apiece, though a selected number of Gen44 and Grassroots tickets were available for $250.”
The campaign now says, according to the pooler, that only 550 people showed up
And that’s all in addition to the protesters who showed up with signs such as “Out of Hope, Ready for Change,” “Debt Slavery,” “Obama’s Blvd. of Broken Promises” and “Bye Bye on Nov. 6th.”
The pool report doesn’t say if the protesters were disenchanted former Obama supporters or longtime Obama detractors.
So they may have been Democrats? That would be rich, they may have figured out it’s their economy too. But I dream. All the Ostrich Economics professor.s destruction of America is tiring him out. That’s too bad, maybe a rest would help pick you up.
The Denver Post, however, quotes a state Republican operative outside the fundraiser. That operative outside was frowning upon what Obama said inside:
“(Romney’s) working assumption is (if) CEOs and wealthy investors like him get rich, then the rest of us automatically will too,” Obama told the crowd of about 550 people gathered at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center. “What Gov. Romney doesn‘t seem to get is that a healthy economy doesn’t just mean a few folks maximizing their profits through massive layoffs or busting unions.”
Sounds like he is gonna really like the Walker election in Wisconsin. Maybe he would like to go and help the Union Thug? After-all, the public’s 747 looks real big when it lands.
Well there is always tomorrow.
