One of the things I’ve been saying over and over again is the actual evidence of Obama’s election prospects:

A NYT reporter at an Obama event this week tweeted out the following

Politico immediately went into the full prevent defense:

But the crowd for the afternoon fundraiser at the Bridgeport Art Center totaled 1,000, an Obama campaign official said – more than the 850-person estimate the campaign offered earlier in the weekend. Tickets for the Gen44 fundraiser, targeted at younger supporters, started at $51, but many were more expensive.

And, to this reporter and several others in the White House press pool, the room seemed plenty full. There was empty space at the back of the large loft space during and immediately after the president’s remarks, but the crowd was densely packed to get close to the stage at the front of the room where Obama spoke.

The problem for Politico and the left is we all remember the crowds for Obama 4 years ago. If you are arguing over half full vs “plenty full” both of them mean something different from “Full” or “Overflowing” Thus Tom Maguire’s quip:

some say the glass is half empty but I say it’s a specimen cup.

Meanwhile lets look at the turnout for the latest Romney Rally in NC a state the President won:

One picture is the front of the line, one picture kinda the back, EXCEPT my camera can’t capture two and a half blocks of people.

and it was bigger in Wisconsin:

Anne is at the Romney-Ryan rally in Waukesha. She says the crowd is so large they had to move the rally from indoors to outdoors to accommodate all the people.

We’re still trying to confirm the crowd size estimate. (Campaign says 10,000, which is similar to what Anne was told.)

Take a look at that line, you would think it was Chick-Fil-A on a Wednesday.

Stacy McCain was at Manassas and the men from Massachusetts & Wisconsin got more of the same:

How big was the crowd? Huge. Enormous. Gigantic. It was difficult to get an estimate because the audience attending the rally overflowed the pavilion (which has an official capacity of 1,000) and filled the surrounding plaza. Lines to get into the venue circled around several blocks and, when Romney and Ryan arrived, there were still hundreds waiting to get through the metal detectors. Susan Ferrechio of the Washington Examiner, who rode into town on the press bus, shot a photo of the crowd lining the streets of Manassas that prompted the paper’s editorial page editor Mark Tapscott to muse that the polls must be wrong: “How to explain such crowds if Obama is leading in Virginia, one of the key swing states?”

Clearly these two Northerners won this third battle of Bull Run.

This is the difference between a campaign that is winning and a campaign that is losing. Last time around Obama drew huge crowds and McCain didn’t match until the Palin pick. This time around with the Ryan Pick Romney is getting the overflowing crowds while the Obama media tries to argue the difference between a “half full” and “mostly full”

This was also so predictable, as Bill Whittle told us just after the 2008 election:

On Tuesday, the Left – armed with the most attractive, eloquent, young, hip and charismatic candidate I have seen with my adult eyes, a candidate shielded by a media so overtly that it can never be such a shield again, who appeared after eight years of an historically unpopular President, in the midst of two undefended wars and at the time of the worst financial crisis since the Depression and whose praises were sung by every movie, television and musical icon without pause or challenge for 20 months… who ran against the oldest nominee in the country’s history, against a campaign rent with internal disarray and determined not to attack in the one area where attack could have succeeded, and who was out-spent no less than seven-to-one in a cycle where not a single debate question was unfavorable to his opponent – that historic victory, that perfect storm of opportunity…

Yielded a result of 53%

Folks, we are going to lick these people out of their boots.

Or as I would put it:

“Ride right through them, they’re demoralized as hell”!

Guys it’s going to be geometrically more difficult for the media to convince the public and the left that this isn’t happening. The inevitable end result?

Update: The PJ Media link was dead so used the NRO version.

Hornblower bowed, but as the Colonel remained unbending he stiffened to attention. He could recognize that type of man at once—the servant of a tyrant, and in close personal association with him, modeling his conduct not on the tyrant’s but on what he fancied should be the correct behaviour of a tyrant, far out-Heroding Herod.

Jack Sullivan: I got news for you son, she already has all the control. And when she’s done with this world she will control the next whichever world that is. Probably hell, because she’ll want to be reunited with her family.

One of the things that has gotten short shift when critiquing the Obama Administration has been the disaster the people under him have been.

Elizabeth Scalia (whose quote titles this post) brings this up in her piece at the Anchoress saying:

In Washington DC, every administration brings in a number of new people — both male and female — who are MCTC (“more connected than capable”) and I’ve always thought of J-Nap as one of them.

We’ve talked about some of those real winners Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings at this blog but all of these people and their radical views have been enabled by Obama.

Obama is a radical, he was brought up as a radical, he was taught as a radical, and is the worst type of radical, a radical with “Chicago Machine Values” under anything resembling normal circumstance he would have all the chance of being elected president as Rosanne Barr…

…BUT he is a radical who carries himself and presents himself as someone acceptable to the American people, and once he got in he brought his ideological soul mates, people who did not feel the need to hide the type of folks they are.

When you look at some of the worst things that have come from this administration you don’t have to go far to see the hand of these people and it is the work of those people on a lower level that contribute the most real world damage to Americans.

When President Obama is replaced in November it will be good for the country but just as good if not better will the symbolic cleaning of the Augean stables that the sweeping his radical cronies from DC will be.
