Scarecrow Alert: Failure-in-Chief Can’t Fill Medium Venue Even With Fire-Sale Discount Seats

September 24, 2010

It’s shocking, how far Obama has fallen.

I remember the world’s most arrogant narcissist puffing himself up on a “Temple of Barack” stage during his acceptance speech.

I knew from the get-go that the man was a failure and a fraud waiting to ruin America.  And even I never dreamed Obama would fall this far, this fast.

Obama’s Fire Sale
by Gail Sheehy Info

Six weeks before the election, President Obama couldn’t fill the ballroom at the Roosevelt Hotel, despite cheap tickets on offer. And then he was met by hecklers.

Who would have thought that six weeks before a cliffhanger election, President Obama would have to reach down to the D list to fill a room to listen to him? Most of us low rollers arrived early to see President Obama up close and personal. Our tickets for the general reception at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York were only $100. Some thought the email invitation was a joke. Some bought tickets for $50 from their desperate Democratic committeeman. Some bought the same day.

“It’s Filene’s,” enthused Sharon Douglas, reliving her heady days as a volunteer in Obama’s 2008 campaign. The doorman beckoned conspiratorially and ushered us out one door and in through another to stand at the back of the $500 line. Their crowd came from Wall Street in car services and killer heels. Our crowd came on subways in flats and scuffed teacher’s shoes.

Only after I received four email invitations and two personal calls imploring me to come did I call Speaker Pelosi’s office to check the admission price. “You mean, to be in the room with the President of the United States is now on fire sale for $100?”

”Yup.”

“How long do we get?”

“Half hour.”

“How many $100 givers have rsvp’d?”

“Mmmm 250.”

“Do we need to line up early to get in?”

“That’s not necessary. Everybody  will get in.”

And everybody did—450 people in a room that holds 650.  Even Obama’s fire sale didn’t sell out.

Obama can’t fill a medium-sized venue with Democrats now.  That’s what an embarrassment he has become.  To his own party.  After only 18 months in office.

Obama was a skyrocketing celebrity just a matter of months ago.  Now he’s a lot more like Pee Wee Herman.  You know, Pee Wee Herman after getting arrested for playing with himself in an adult theater.

By way of analogy, the “adult theater” has been the economic meltdown that has dramatically worsened under Obama’s watch, with the masturbation being the effect his asinine policies have had on the crisis.

Obama is down to the ‘D’ list.  And that ‘D’ aint for ‘Democrat’ in this case.  It’s for ‘near persona non grata.’

But don’t feel too sorry for Barry Hussein.  Pretty soon he’ll have a whole lot of Republicans willing to stand in line to thank him (without shaking his hand, of course) for being the Agent Orange to the tree of the Democrat Party.
