Get ready!

Block off all the streets! The hordes are coming!

Apparently not.

Bark's a long gone daddy in the USA!

Was Tammy Baldwin there, shaking her moneymaker? Inquiring minds want to know.

Subdued? Yea, that's Rock n Roll.

Snark said...

There were of course other photos of several thousand people. I don't understand a post like this that feels like the kind of small disingenuousness most of us would criticize elsewhere.

Born in the USA!!!! NOT. At least not born with American values allegiance or attachment. Obama is exactly the man the framers were preventing from the Presidency by requiring a natural born Citizen. They were requiring a "child of our own" (sic) (Federalist #68). A British born subject of a British subject Kenyan father is certainly not a natural born Citizen.

Even birth in the USA is not conclusively proven (a pic on a website is proof of nothing, and is not evidence in any court of law).

Rallies can be a snare and a delusion; when you have a rally, your organization has to put resources into getting out to the rally, that don't go into the all important get out the vote.

The Obama campaign would be wise to say, we don't want to cannibalize our efforts. Not that I'm saying that explains these low numbers at rallies; but if Obama wins tomorrow, it could be.

I would have come out to see a British-subject usurper. Boring old Obama? Yawn. I think this proves Obama is a US citizen. People would come out in droves to see an actual usurper. Besides, I heard--well, I'm not sure what I heard. There were conflicting reports. One guy said Jill Stein was being arrested on the other side of town, so the 40,000 liberals who had intended to see Springsteen--and who's that guy he's opening for? Bronco What? Yeah we'll stay for that I guess.--were whisked away to cheer her on and pledge their support. Protest vote! The other report was that it was actually just a day-old French roll or pile of goose shit--I guess that makes another conflicting report--that looked like Jill Stein, and everyone wanted to, ahem, take a gander.

Not since Vaudeville have people been treated to such a cornucopia of visual riches. Usurpers on one stage, goose poop that looks like Green Party candidates on another. Where is the bearded lady? Oh, same stage? Ok. Sword swallowers?

The requirement is "natural born Citizen", i.e one born with singular allegiance to the US, i.e not born of foreign parentage. DUH. (see A2S1C4. and Federalist #68)

When it's all said and done this time tomorrow I predict the D's win 2 out of 3: WI, MI, MA. Leave it to the stoopid party to pick their candidates from Blue State territory.

It was that pathetic?

Oh, boy, and I thought 400+ electoral votes for the Romster was being sportive.

It looks like someone usurped your funny bone.

Wow...that's certainly a comedown from selling out the LA Colesieum four nights in a row....

It's hard to tell who is stupid and who is joking.

Just goes to show how little I've been paying attention to that technology around here. It's not his fault: God knows he tries.

I will, however, look forward to 10 years from now. Being able to make one's own metal stuff would be cool.


Let your heart be not troubled, Father. It's going to be Romney even in Wisconsin.

Weather forecast: Dane County might get snow as well as rain tomorrow morning. Milwaukee will get rain.

Good news as far as I'm concerned. Because I know which side will be willing to stand outside in the cold and rain tomorrow to cast their votes and which side might be a bit "meh" about it.

What's with the snow plows?

Bless you, Meade, those pics of empty streets are comforting. My head is swimming with poll numbers and predictions; my heart is heavy with the knowledge that we are all tired, so very tired, of Bronco Bamma, and we want him to go home.

May tomorrow be a happy day.

Bryan C said...

But the tumbleweeds had Obama bumper stickers, so there's that.

phx said...

Thank goodness for Meade and Althouse's objectivity. From the pictures we can clearly see there were only thirty or so people at this dismal, dull, and subdued rally.

As a Fr. Joseph, O.Cist., said in a somewhat Faulknerian homily 'When thing don't go as we wish, some will whine, some be angry to absolve themselves of responsibility. Recall, "Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted." '

rcommal said...

OMG! First time ever: Dixville Notch, NH, has a tied vote for president.

Seriously. 5-5.

Reagan said...

It is a good thing we have this objective storyline from Meade. It appears there were 8 people at the rally. I was expecting some people to be puking up from partying so hard at 7 in the morning on a weekday. Really, it should have been a topless bachelor party.

Obama is a Natural Born Citizen because he was born in the USA---in Hawaii as his birth certificate and the confirmation of the officials of both parties in Hawaii and the Index Data and the birth notices sent to the papers in 1961 by the DOH of Hawaii all show.

And the US Supreme Court has ruled in the Wong Kim Ark case (which BTW was AFTER Minor v. Happersett) that the meaning of Natural Born comes from the common law, and that it refers to the place of birth, and that everyone born in the USA except the children of foreign diplomats is a Natural Born US citizen.

“Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are "natural born citizens" eligible to serve as President ..."---- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005) [Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]
