Politico: MIAMI, Fla. -- A low-dollar fundraiser here Monday felt like a throwback to the 2008 campaign.
There was the same old soundtrack – including “City of Blinding Lights” by U2, the president’s 2008 anthem -- the enthusiastic organizers and the abundant appeals for supporters to rally behind President Obama.
The one missing element? Overflowing crowds.
Granted, it was a fundraiser, not a free rally. But the empty seats were hard to miss.
The top level of the 2,200-seat concert hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts was entirely empty, as were the seats along the side of the second and third levels.
"The expectation was 900," a Democratic official said, and more than 980 tickets were sold.
Tickets for the Gen 44 event started at $44, the official said.
Are you buying that excuse? If they were only expecting 900 why the heck did they get a hall for 2,200? Perhaps it is just more wasteful spending from this administration. Sarah Palin would have had no problem filling 2,200 seats at twice the price. Something for the left to think about.
Whatever the case maybe, the magic of Hope and Change is dead and bury. Obama's record is starting to stink up the joint. It is only at short matter of time before public opinion solidifies and he is pronounced a universal failure.
