It was this in 2008 —

It is this in 2014 —

When people are voting with their feet, you don’t need a pollster to tell you what the lay of the land is with the electorate.

The second video of a walk out is for Mary Burke. This is the second time in a month that The Won has roused the crowd to walk out on him. That sock drawer must be a real mess.

    Part of the reason is that the media has abandoned Obama to set the stage for Hillary.

    #2 Being that she’s the original birther, I wonder if they’ll still shine a light on that stage if she doesn’t get “her turn”. 😉 Whatever she knows, she’ll use…or be deemed crazy, one of the two.

    What bc3b said

    In 2008 and 2012 the media routinely used strategic camera angles to make 1/2 filled venues appear OVERFLOWING with Obama supporters. Now they are bizzzy making AND Elizabeth Warren look as good as possible.

    Lather…Rinse…Repeat

    Looks like in some races the local Dim candidate is not even mentioning Obama. — http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/la-na-begich-obama-20141029-story.html#page=1 — Never seen so much animus about one holder of the white house. Nixon had better.

    One thing the press better take into account. As they pivot to their favorite running horse they better not burn the barn down behind them. The flash back could burn them and the running horse.

    JR –

    After Sarah Palin’s speech at the GOP convention and McCain overtook Obama in daily polling, you can’t convince me that the media didn’t have meetings with the Obama campaign team to destroy Palin.

    8 – They don’t particularly need official “meetings”, as they are already simpatico in thought most of the time.

    Beheading – In fashion this season for those looking to kill their mothers.

    Nothing new except perhaps an nbc affiliate getting around to cover it. Just reminder about why tech firms in particular loves them some h1-b’s. Earth to nbc it really hasn’t been a secret.
