The “real reporters” of the MSM may pooh-pooh the attendance at President Romney’s massive rallies, but they were very impressed with the turnout at President Obama’s rally in Milwaukee yesterday:

“The President addressed a crowd of around 20,000 people at the Delta Center in downtown Milwaukee.”

Local ABC affiliate WXOW

“20,000-Plus Turn Out for Obama Rally with Katy Perry in Milwaukee”

The Hollywood Reporter

* * *

“With help from pop sensation Katy Perry, President Barack Obama drew 20,000 people Saturday as he trumpeted his accomplishments in office and urged people not only to vote, but to volunteer in the closing days before the election.”

The Chicago Tribune

ABC News’ Jake Tapper:

Just one problem: As Ben Shapiro notes at Brietbart.com, the Delta Airlines Center (where the rally was held) has a capacity of only 12,580.

Like David Limbaugh says, this is what we’ve come to expect from the MSM.

    No word if he fed the crowd with two fish and five loaves of bread?

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Is that done the same way they fill a clown car at the circus?

    • Zane Henry

      I could almost see an over-filling of the center to maybe 15k, ignoring fire safety codes, but there’s no way in Hell that place held 20k.

      Their desperation; it is both palpable and scrumptious!

      • Frustrated Teacher

        I’m gonna watch more MSNBC and CNN Tuesday night than I have all year. Just to watch them cry! It’s going to be GLORIOUS!

    They weren’t counting the actual people. Just the number of votes they’re going to cast.

  • Jack Deth

    If you look and listen closely. You can almost here some faceless Obama minion shout.

    “More Cowbell!”

    Kind of liked the botched Balloon Drops at the ends of Al Gore’s and John Kerry’s media
    splashed Democrat conventions.

    • redheadgrl

      heh. more cowbell. really laughed out loud.

  • ERMERGERD

    I hope they keep reporting like this. Then libs won’t feel the urgency to vote.

  • tony

    Even us country folks can cipher gooder than that.

  • afvet4america

    Well that’s okay cause if Oblamer cab say he’s only a prop I guess his made up crowds are too.

  • John Galt

    Just like the democrat voters, some of them where counted twice!

  • TomJB

    Thats OK, if Obama wins, they plan to hold the inauguration in “Redskins Stadium” (i.e. Fedex Field) so they will be able to fit the estimated crowd of 750,000

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KFVPZJEDRJ4AGTEVX2G3H7QLYM greyfox

      I thought that stadium held a million.

  • Lin Blackett

    Half were there to see Katy not barry

    • Zane Henry

      The same with Stevie Wonder.

  • Love of Country

    Small crowds for Dinglebarry in Milwaukee? Perhaps they were all down at Arnold’s or the Leopard Lodge and who could blame them? Certainly the last four years have not been Happy Days.

    • Kathleen Mcdonald Shepherd Die

      just came from Romney rally in Bucks County, Pa—at least 30000 people there and several thousand outside the security fence

      • Love of Country

        That’s outstanding, Kathleen …. we’re proud of your participation and thanks for the heads up!

        :))

      • JamesBenson

        CBS reported that “thousands” attended the rally. They don’t know whether it was two or twenty or thirty thousand , though.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KFVPZJEDRJ4AGTEVX2G3H7QLYM greyfox

          Yes, it’s hard to tell the difference between 2 thousand and twenty thousand. The MSM can’t seem to understand that they are they are the idiots not the public. Gawd, what will they do when Romney is elected as he surely will be. Benghazi? no story here just move along folks, Fast and furious? no story here, just move along folks. Romney’s
          charitable acts? no story here, just move along folks. But when Obama farts it’s headline news from all MSM, unbelievable. You have sold the public an empty suit now you can wear it.

  • http://twitter.com/InformedNow InformNow

    Brought to you by the party that invented double counting… double counting votes, double counting budgets, now double counting attendance!

  • http://twitter.com/Awakedt Flipt

    Lazy lap-dog media merely take Obama campaign’s reported attendance and dutifully repeat the number w/o questioning it. I’m a little surprised Jake Tapper was sucked into the black hole of misinformation coming from Chicago HQ

  • ChicksLoveRight

    Whoever wins this election (I know, I know, Mitt it is!) the sure loser is MSM!

      Here! Here! They will wear this badge of shame for a long long time. They are so invested in Obama they find it hard to turn on him. All the evidence shows how wrong they have been and still they stick to their misguided stories.

    Here’s a number for you — 6,500 at the Paul Ryan rally in Minneapolis today that word went out about 48 hours or so ago. My family and I were there and it was energetic and powerful. And that’s the non-incumbent VP candidate!!!

    • fanofamerica

      Check that – Mpls Star Tribune now reporting 10,000 at the Ryan rally!

  • Dan Thorpe

    I live in Milwaukee and they held it at a convention center not an arena. Having been there a few times, I could see it holding 20k. You have to remember that Wisconsin has a lot of unions, under-informed voters and a large population of liberal voters. Hell I live in one of the most liberal parts of Milwaukee. I had my Romney sign defaced at my home. My question is how people were there for Katy Perry? As I travel around town, I see a lot of Romney signs probably 2-1 or 3-1 in some areas.

    • Linda Ann McBride

      Thanks for this information. I am very conservative but there is so much bad info out there even from the Republicans. I hate that conservatives also twist the facts, even a little. Example: ballots for Romney coming up Obama. There are only reports that were claims only. There is no proof that happened. Also Soros had nothing to do with those machines. Let’s keep it real. I am however living in great fear of Obama winning, but I don’t want to be mislead. I can’t depend on anything I read on either side and now have to check everything out for myself. So glad when this is over……unless Obama wins.

      • Dan Thorpe

        I am actually pretty confident right now, all the polling numbers are trending towards Romney especially in typically Democrat states. Combine that with excitement and what seems like a ground swell of support and I think it will be a good night Tuesday. Also don’t discount the huge Romney rallies compared to the “small gatherings” of the Obama campaign

      • MondaysChild76

        Are you saying that ballots marked for Romney did not turn to votes for Obama? I can’t speak to what is going on in other places but in NC that is absolutely happening. In Guilford County, NC it was happening at 3 different early voting locations and the BOE director for the county admitted it

      • JamesMc

        Don’t be mislead Linda. Romney has had the lead in National polls for the last month. Analyzing the internals of the State polls show a likely Romney win as well. Many media sources are going full court press to show Obama love. Then there’s the blatant Media Matters trolls pulling the concern troll to get you down. Their side reeks of desperation, not confidence. Take that to heart. Romney’s winning this.

  • WJGBalderama

    Hey, it’s possible. You know Dems are very enterprising. Check the photos. Who knows? Half of the seated attendees may have been asked to have someone sit on their laps.

  • $30756787

    20,000? Is that like the 35k that attended Louis Farrakhan’s Million Man March? Gotta go back to rubbing the broken glass across my stomach in preparation for Tuesday. Anybody got a rag to wipe the blood?

  • Redzilla

    It was more of a ‘composite’ of crowd estimates.

  • Prince Bowaa

    Yor republicans cannot think. 12,580. is the official for sitting places only.,

    Sadly, if he wins, which is a good change (ugh…..)…the inauguration will be attended by
    100 million people! The waters will part, and rainbows will abound daily………..everywhere……..here we go again. Maybe, possibly, maybe not……..

  • in_awe

    Just like the estimates two years ago when Glenn Beck held his rally in DC. MSM estimates were 1/10 of more accurate estimates. They have an elastic way of reaching their numbers – if it is a conservative rally divide by ten; if it is a liberal rally multiply by whatever number you want to maintain the fiction of popular support.

  • Terry

    Lefty Liberal Madison WI – WI State Journal has come out endorsing Romney! Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel isn’t endorsing either candidate. This is the first time I recall they didn’t endorse for POTUS. I like Bruce Springsteen’s music, but I don’t think he’s going to draw many college students in Madison tonite. Romney will be in Milwaukee at about the same time, and I look forward to seeing him.

    The MSM have finally succeeded in reaching a point where no one believes anything they say. They deny that they carry Obama’s water but they are all stooped over from the weight of the pails. A pitiful bunch at best.What we need is a Pro American, Pro Republican newspaper, one that tells things the way they are not the way the reporters want them to be.
