Ride Right Through them: Half Full Edition

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.

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?
