Crap Wants To be Applauded for Floating

Narcissist Romney Campaign made last minute demands to bus in a more enthusiastic crowd. I wanna have happy cheerful Latinos & Latinas, this crowds sitting on their hands!
You can't make this up! Crap floats & needs to be applauded for it!

When the Republican took his place Wednesday night in the first of two back-to-back candidate forums televised on the mega-network, he was greeted by an adoring, raucous crowd that cheered his every word, and booed many of the moderators' questions. The next night, President Obama was treated to stone cold silence from the audience as he was aggressively grilled on his lackluster immigration record.

How PATHETIC A PIECE OF CRAP THIS IS that he needs a canned adoring audience!

Salinas told BuzzFeed that tickets for each forum were divided between the network, the respective campaigns, and the University of Miami (which hosted the events) " and she said both campaigns initially agreed to keep the audience comprised mostly of students, in keeping with the events' education theme.

But after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus, the Romney camp realized there weren't enough sympathetic students to fill the stands on their night " so they told the network and university that if they weren't given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to "reschedule."

The organizers relented. One Democrat with ties to the Obama campaign noted that Rudy Fernandez, the university official charged with coordinating the forums, is a member of Romney's Hispanic steering committee. Fernandez did not respond to BuzzFeed's questions about whether he gave preferential treatment to Romney's campaign."

Joe, I posted about this under Tan Man II on September 22 at 16:49. Demi posted right underneath, "I don't blame them. It worked for Obama." I have no idea what her post was in response to but if it was in response to my post about busing people in, it makes no sense.

You're not saying you're surprised, are you, Dockside... because I'm not. I haven't read anywhere that the President is in need of fixed audiences. It seems to me that conjecture and projection are about the only tools left in the GOP toolbox, and they haven't even been sharpened...

Kindergarteners throwing temper tantrums what else is new.

I am so surprised. There is this mouth open so surprised look on my face.

They think that the campaign is of yesteryear. That people only know what they see on TV. Not understanding that in the real world people read and the organizer would tell and it would all be for nothing and hurt the candidate. Stacking the deck like Voter ID, and stacking a audience with actors it only makes you look bad and hurt the candidate.

Thanks Dockside I can't believe between the ideas of trying to rig the voting, believing in the polls are rigged & this what a piece of crap this character is.
