Press corps is M.I.A.
at Obama rally

Washington Post, by David Nakamura

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 10/6/2012 1:44:48 PM

MADISON, Wisc. – It’s the kind of rally the Obama campaign wanted to show off to the world: a crowd of 30,000 students showing up for President Obama on a quadrangle on the leafy University of Wisconsin campus. But a day after Obama’s lackluster debate performance, the president’s bad fortune continued: Though the crowd and the president showed up, the national press corps did not. Because of a mix-up at the Denver airport, the press corps’ charter plane was delayed about half an hour en route to Madison, Wis., and failed to arrive on time.

Comments:
Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck.

(And I don't believe there were 30,000 there, either.)

Either they are incompetent or there is a mole in the Obammunist's event office.

I'm surprised the lsm didn't just accept a photo from the won's campaign. Of course, getting a picture of a crow of 30,000 is hard to do without a crowd of 30,000.

Well, if the press corpse didn't cover it, then it didn't happen. No great loss.

Good one # 5.

My thinking is that it does not matter where the LSM is.

They already have the WH e-mail:

Talking point 1 - Romney is a liar.
Talking point 2 - Obama is king.

Any other questions, see above.

Why should it matter that the press was not there? Their stories would be written before the event anyway.

They shut all classes down. Told teachers to take day off and "recommended" students attend... Not hard with a captive audience..

obit did his own version of the empty chair. He talked trash to Romney by saying things he couldn't think on his feet to say during the debate. It's easy to talk trash to the enemy when the enemy has left the building; much harder to talk trash when the enemy is kicking your backside. All over the stage! That's why obit turned around when he heard the noise back stage at the debate. He thought that it was the sound of his butt being slammed up against the wall. Did you see the look of relief on his face when he realized his butt was still behind him? Tee hee! Sorry guys, but I'm still on a high from the debate. As my granny used to say, that was good to me!

Don't know why zero bothered to take the time with a crowd who apparently were such geniuses that they thought it was unfair that he didn't have a teleprompter in the debate. They obviously are too stupid to be anything but liberals.

Remember that bourgeoisie "corporate jet" line from the debate? Guess who flies non-commercial everywhere on the campaign trail??

For those who do not know, on the campaign trail, no plebian press person has to endure TSA. Anywhere. Ever. Simply that the bus is mystically cleared onto the ramp for them to board their privately chartered aircraft.

If the Obama crew ever thought that Obama really had that place in the bag this year, Obama would never have gone there. Just like always, the Obama crew can call off an attendance number and the liberal media will run with whatever number the Obama crew throws out there.

Madison has approximately 40,000 students.

Are we to believe that 75% of them signed up to see Obama?

What nonsense.

The National Security Agency has eyes and ears everywhere. At least, so we thought. In 2012, during a classified but widely-known operation at Fort Meade, MD, government crypotographers and developers downloaded the OpenSSL source code, as it does with dozens of other software published on the Web. The operation´s objective was to find weaknesses in the library and exploit those vulnerabilities as part of wider efforts by the intelligence agency to conduct mass-scale surveillance. Executives and senior officials heralded it as one of the biggest vulnerability discoveries in the intelligence agency´s recent

Mickey Rooney´s legacy includes raising

The legacy of Mickey Rooney, who died on April 6 in California at age 93, goes far beyond the silver screen. The prolific film star did a service for millions of elderly in this country by helping to publicize the scourge of financial elder abuse. Whether it´s fraudulent sweepstakes phone calls, investments, grandparent scams, or the far more insidious deceptions by neighbors, friends, employees, and relatives, such exploitation is rampant and on the rise.(Snip) In September 2011, Rooney´s court-appointed conservator, Michael. R. Augustine, filed suit against the actor´s stepson Christopher Aber, and the stepson´s wife, Christina, alleging elder abuse and

Los Angeles - A shallow 5.1-magnitude earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area Friday causing power cuts, gas leaks and bursting water mains, and stopping rides at Disneyland. While no injuries were reported, objects fell from shelves and furniture toppled over, according to photos posted on social media, while TV pictures showed a car flipped over by a rockslide. (Snip) At Dodger Stadium, the quake briefly interrupted the baseball game between the LA Dodgers and the Angels.

These should be avoidable Measles has made a comeback, at least in New York City, where as many as 19 cases have been confirmed. New York City isn’t an anomaly, though. Diseases that are and have been avoidable in the U.S. thanks to vaccines, are resurfacing all across the country. Measles, for instance, was considered wiped out in 2000, but there have been several outbreaks in the past few years.

L´Wren Scott was found dead on Monday in her New York City apartment. The fashion designer, who has been dating Mick Jagger since 2001, was found hanged to death. She was 49. According to authorities, the body of L´Wren Scott was discovered hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant around 10 a.m. in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. Preliminary reports suggest a suicide and foul play is not suspected; however, the medical examiner will determine a cause of death.

If the news last month that the prevalence of obesity among American preschoolers had plunged 43 percent in a decade sounded too good to be true, that´s because it probably was, researchers say. When the study was published in late February in the Journal of the American Medical Association, no one had a ready explanation for that astounding finding by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(Snip) Anti-obesity campaigners credited everything from changes to the federal nutrition program for low-income women and children to the elimination of trans-fats from fast food, more physical activity in child-care

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
