Team Obama: The smaller crowd sizes? We're doing that on purpose

Remember those enormous crowds that turned out for Obama's rallies in 2008 and helped create an unstoppable wave of excitement culminating in a convincing election victory? They're not going to make that mistake again : However, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are not drawing the crowds they once could. Full Story

“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.

That is really funny.

The linkages between President Obama, ACORN, the New Party and Working Families Party are too close and longstanding to be a coincidence. Democratic progressive activists may claim that unearthing such links constitutes "smears" and "McCarthyism." But aside from being wrong on their face, such accusations miss the larger context. All political alliances, Left or Right, are "conspiracies" of a small minority designed to attract support from a large majority - in other words, networks. And within the current administration, the common denominator of this network, aside from Obama himself, is Patrick Gaspard. National Review Online columnist Stanley Kurtz notes, "We are talking about a persistent and shared political alliance between President Obama and the complex of community, labor, and party organizations controlled by ACORN." That may be another way of saying that if ACORN is a criminal operation, then crime pays politically as well as economically.

Black americans are asking themselves, why should they bother to show for his events when he don't bother to show up for major black events to show his support for black americans, when he's only 5 mins away. Instead he plays it up a white friends' or half white friends' homes to party. God forbid he sacrefice his own birthday party to attend a black themed event in the neighborhood. And what about those black teachers he fired in a program ironically called RENAISSANCE 2010. It's so Marie Antoinette from white Europe.

The Obamas were a deadly force to deal with in Chicago. Barack firing black teachers. Michelle turning poor black patients away from the hospital to earn her high paid living. Let's not forget third leg, Valerie Jarrett, scamming the poor blacks in the South Side with housing code infractions. Let them live in rat hell holes I built while I hob nob with the well-heeled crowd mentality against their own. It's disgusting.
