Oh, no! What are Obama cheerleaders to do? Suzanne Malveaux gives it the old college try.

She’s so eager and excited! This is even better than the White House Correspondents’ Dinner! Gee, Suzanne, you mean there is a crush of people at a checkpoint? Unprecedented!

For a certain value of “crowds.” Others on the scene report the crowds are noticeably smaller than Obama’s first Inauguration.

Heh.

Aww. It stings, doesn’t it? He totally planned the smaller crowds. Plus, Obamacare. So, shaddup, wingnuts (which apparently now includes reporters who are daring to post small crowd photos). Perhaps that’s why the Obama head cheerleaders in the media are still frantically trying to spin the lines and excitedly squee.

Hundreds of schoolkids! MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski gets in on the act.

Buzzing!

At The Dubliner. To try to get on television. Oh, sweetie.

No, for real! People are totally excited, guys. See?

More like a Sandra Fluke “intimate gathering” numbering in the tens.

    David Axelrod just called the event a “consecration.” While the word inauguration had such a connotation in the middle ages, it no longer does, and they know it.

    These vermin are using sacred language to mock people of spirit and character. Every word is carefully chosen to demoralize us.

    You would think they might give it a rest on a day like today. Not them. They are not people of spirit and character. What are the antonyms of spirit and character? That’s what these people harbor in their hearts.

      • $30423294

        Let me try to flesh out the logic a bit since you seem to be struggling.

        The word “consecrate” is an infrequent word in the English language. Basic axioms of information science point out that the unexpectedness of a word is a measure of its information value. You get that, right?

        So the word consecrate, now there’s a doozy. It is used infrequently, and on very particular occasions. Oh yes, I’ll double down on that one, that word was hand picked to disturb genuinely religious people.

        You might feel that it is an innocuous word choice. You might feel emotionally wounded on behalf of Mr. Obama. But now I have explained my thought process. Whether you accept the truth about Mr. Obama or not is between you and your conscience.

      received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for

      Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).

      * In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of

      the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their

      polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney.

      (Another statistical impossibility).

      * In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only

      98,213 eligible voters. From a resident of Wood County:

I am angry at the turnout too, but believe me southern conservatives did not and still do not hate Romney or Mormons!!

    • Patsplacepp

      @rennyangel2:disqus pop over to FactCheck.org

      This email claims there was “massive voter fraud” in a handful of U.S. states, but nearly all of the examples given are wrong or completely fabricated. (One is mostly true, but lacks context.) The anonymous author of this bogus tirade may want to believe that votes were falsely recorded for President Obama, but the supposed “evidence” cited in the email is simply imaginary.

      We’ll go through each point in this message, which has been forwarded to us by several readers. The claims made here also have popped up on conservative blogs and message boards.

      Made-Up Claims About Wood County, Ohio

      Terry Burton, director of the Wood County Board of Elections, doesn’t know why fabricated claims about votes in Wood County, Ohio, are swirling around the Internet. “The misrepresentations of the outcome of the 2012 elections … continue to be [a] mystery and a point of frustration to our office,” he told us in an email. The actual results, he said, “are plainly available on our website.”

      The viral claims include a made-up statistic about Wood County’s results:

      Claim: In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

      Actually, Obama didn’t get 100 percent of the vote in any district in Wood County, as anyone can clearly see on the election board’s website. Obama garnered 51.21 percent of the vote overall in the county.

      As for the claim that “GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations,” there’s nothing to that, either. It appears to have been pure fantasy on the part of this anonymous email author. “The random accusations which continue to be made regarding Wood County are untrue,” says Burton. “No candidate received 100% of the vote in any precinct in Wood County, no precinct officials were removed during Election Day and no issues were identified during a recount and/or the required state audit.”

      The viral email goes on to suggest there was voter fraud in Wood County with more votes cast than eligible voters. But that’s not the case, either.

      Claim: In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

      Actually, according to the Ohio Secretary of State data, 63,948 votes were cast for president in Wood County in 2012, with 32,802 votes for Obama, 29,704 for Romney, and 1,442 for other candidates. Once again, the figures in the email are completely off base.

      What the anonymous author is attempting to question is the number of registered voters in Wood County, a figure that is artificially high because of college students at Bowling Green State University remaining on the voter rolls. There were 108,014 registered voters in the county,according to the Secretary of State website. But the total population of Wood County is 126,355, with only about 99,000 of those over the age of 18. The apparent discrepancy comes from Bowling Green students not canceling their registrations when they graduate and leave the area. Burton told the Columbus Dispatch that nonactive voters stay on registration rolls for two election cycles before the election board tries to contact them. Then, it’s two more cycles before anyone the board can’t find is deleted. That means college students can remain on registration lists for more than a decade after they’ve left Wood County. Back in 2004, for instance, there were 90,688 registered voters in the county, but only 64,103 showed up at the polls to vote.

      Wood County follows federal laws for removing inactive voters. Says Burton: “Wood County has worked closely with the Ohio Secretary of State’s office to ensure that we are continuing to do everything within our power to make Wood County voter rolls as accurate as possible within the bounds of federal and state laws.”

      St. Lucie Distortions

      Another bogus bit is being spread about St. Lucie County, Fla.

      Claim: In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

      The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

      It’s simply not true that there were tens of thousands more votes cast than voters available in St. Lucie County. Whoever first started this falsehood misread a St. Lucie election board documentshowing that 249,095 “cards” were cast, and registered voters totaled 175,554.

      But the supervisor of elections website explains that a “card” is one page, and the full “ballot” contained two pages. Total cards are not double the number of voters, as not every voter cast both pages (or “cards”).

      St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections website: Note* — Turnout percentages will show over 100% due to a two page ballot. The tabulation system (GEMS) provides voter turnout as equal to the total cards cast in the election divided by the number of registered voters. Also note that some voters chose not to return by mail the second card containing the amendments.

      A more detailed document of the county’s votes cast shows total “votes” at 123,301.

      The email author makes the same mistake with “cards” versus “ballots” in claiming that one St. Lucie County polling location, the National SEAL Museum, had a “158% voter turnout.” Not true. Of the jurisdiction’s 2,756 registered voters, 2,243 votes were cast, according to the Supervisor of Elections’ official results. A total of 4,469 “cards” were cast of the two-page ballot. Obama, by the way, got 33.62 percent of the vote at that polling location.

      Viral Email Confusion

      The email includes two bewildering statistics. It gets its voting numbers all wrong for Palm Beach.

      Claim: Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

      According to the County Supervisor of Elections website, the turnout for the presidential election was 69.56 percent.

      We’d guess that whoever wrote that line in the email might have grabbed the 141 percent figure from St. Lucie County — in comparing registered voters with the “cards” cast.

      The email also says:

      Claim: In Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

      Which “Ohio County” might that be? There’s one in Kentucky, West Virginia and Indiana, for starters. But the 108 percent figure appears to be another misguided statistic from Wood County — in Ohio. The percentage can be derived by using the email’s bogus number for Election Day voters and its slightly off number for the county’s voting-age population. As we said, the email inflates voter turnout in Wood County by more than 40,000.

      This is what happens when those with little-to-no regard for the facts spread falsehoods through email and the Internet.

      Hitting a False Note

      The email includes another completely made-up stat:

      Claim: NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

      Not true. There are 11 states with some type of photo identification voting law, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, and Obama won four of them.

      It is true that some state laws are more strict than others, and Romney won the four states with the strictest laws: Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee and Indiana. They require a photo ID in order to vote. People without identification can cast a provisional ballot, which won’t be counted until a voter presents photo ID, generally within a few days after the election. (Indiana will count the provisional ballot if the voter signs an affidavit saying he or she doesn’t have photo ID because of poverty or a religious objection to being photographed.) It’s worth noting that Obama won Indiana in 2008, when the same photo ID law was in place.

      The seven other states with some type of voter photo ID law are: Florida, Michigan, New Hampshire, Hawaii (all won by Obama) and South Dakota, Idaho, Louisiana (all won by Romney). Most of those states allow voters without photo identification to cast votes, if they sign an affidavit or confirm their identities in another way. Idaho, for instance, says that a voter without photo ID (such as a driver’s license, passport or student ID) can sign an affidavit that includes the voter’s name and address. Lying on the form is a felony: “Any person who knowingly provides false, erroneous or inaccurate information on such affidavit shall be guilty of a felony,” the state regulations say.

      Florida uses signature matching to determine whether a provisional ballot — cast by those without photo ID — should be counted. “Your provisional ballot will count if the signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration application,” says the state Division of Elections. In Hawaii, voters can vote if they give their date of birth and address, and that matches the information in the poll book.

      An additional 19 states have laws requiring identification — but not photo IDs. Obama won seven of them.

      Some Philadelphia Districts Don’t Like Romney

      All told, this email purporting to show “astounding” evidence of “voter fraud” contains just a scant sliver of truth. The only correct claim is that some districts in Philadelphia recorded 100 percent of their votes for Obama — a stat that isn’t “a mathematical and statistical impossibility,” as the email claims, and isn’t all that surprising once the full context is known.

      Claim: In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).

      It’s not mathematically impossible. The 59 districts are in areas of the city that are mainly African American, as the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. And Obama received 93 percent of the black vote nationwide.

      In 2008, Obama received 100 percent of the vote in 57 districts in Philadelphia. So it was not that unusual that something similar happened this time around. In fact, Inquirer reporters had a tough time tracking down any registered Republicans in these areas.

      To be clear, these districts make up a small subset of all of Philadelphia. The 59 that went 100 percent for Obama in 2012 constitute 19,605 votes, just 3 percent of the total votes cast in the city.

        Write FOX and complain. These are stats from FOX.

        Right after the election, in less than a week, even the Phila. Inquirer reported 27 Phila. districts had 100% or more voter participation with ALL having 100% votes for the pres., and these were also many of the districts that threw out their Rep. poll watchers until a fed. judge returned them to their rightful oversight.

        I worked in N. Jersey pol.’s for many years long before early voting and when absentee voting required documented necessity and committeemen(women) and ward leaders brought people in to vote in their hospitals beds, people flew up from FL just to vote, and guardians brought in people to sign their X’s (first times I ever saw that), but the voter participation was never above 62%. And that was considered “100%” by the local establishment.

        So, anyone who believes innumerable districts throughout the US had 100% voter turnout in slums, inner cities, esp. among the abandoned buildings and burned out cars, prostitutes, drug addicts, homeless, and derilict needs a course in logic and studies in coherence.

          @PennyClub:disqus LOL. Actually all the information came from FactCheck.org So yes I figure they are pretty obsessed on getting the right information out to the peeps. Again no force feeding here, if you don’t want to read it you don’t have to. It was really meant for rennyangel2

          • Finrod Felagund

            Ah yes, factcheck, the propaganda outfit that called Romney’s 100 percent true statement the ‘lie of the year’. Pardon me while I disbelieve your crap.

          • emjem24

            Can’t you mind the store at home, Pat? Concerned that Obama might have you pay for your own military too? As well as health care that you can’t get in Canada?

        • emjem24

          LOL!

      • emjem24

        Dear Lord, it’s a manifesto from a guy who doesn’t even LIVE HERE. Why do you need to be involved in our electoral process? Sometimes, there’s are just dumb, low info voters (like my in-laws) who vote for the person who sounds “fair” and will “give them stuff.”
        We’ve a dumbed-down electorate and power hungry politicians on both sides. Yet, it seems, Canadians are suddenly concerned with our electoral process. You should be alarmed…

    • GTFOBigGovt

      It’s not statistically impossible for Obama to get 100% of the vote in those Philly wards. I’m from Philly and they are strictly African American AND Philly in is a minority majority city and generally enjoys a good amount of reverse racism.

      • rennyangel2

        Yeah, yeah, yeah, I worked in Jersey City, Newark, and Hoboken and even in the best of voting circumstances, when city machines really knew how to turn out votes–they came to your place and got you, you do not get 100% voter participation, or participation in anything. Period.

    Scanty attendance? Great news!

      Must not have been any union money to bus people in. They could have afforded the buses, but the union people wouldn’t show up for less than double or triple time pay.

    • Patsplacepp

      @Booker_T:disqus @TugboatPhil:disqus @2ifbyT:disqus probably don’t want to turn of Fox News right now then. Doing a lot of wide panning and seems like a lot of people. For sure not as many as it was 4 years ago, but not as bad “Twitchy” would like us to believe

  • 2ifbyT

    Most of those people in the first picture are homeless. They are all over the streets of DC. Probably think they are getting something for showing up. That’s Obama.

    • lainer51

      probably turning their DumbPhones in for a $500 SmartPhone, they can thank us later.

    • Andy Jacobson

      I have no doubt they were expecting something free, what no free drinks, no free sandwich? Wat da faq?

  • rinodino

    Twitchy you’ve been pushing this smaller crowds theme since he was running for a 2nd term, and guess what? He still whipped the republican candidate’s butt… So does it really matter?….. Only to righties it would seem

    • $30423294

      Lance Armstrong whipped French butt too.

      Let me finish the analogy for you:

      Steriods pulled Armstrong across the finish line.

      A corrupt national media pulled Obama across the finish line.

      • rinodino

        Sure, right, whatever helps you sleep at night, scholar

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ Penny Robinson Fan Club

      It really seems to bother you. Would you like to talk about that?

    • Andy Jacobson

      Via lies, unions, LSM media in the tank, voter fraud and he barley go over 50% (really whipping ass there) LOL!

    • emjem24

      Ummm, sweet pea, the thrill is gone… get over it and get ready for your little utopian trial balloon to pop!! A fake and a fraud who is on repeat mode is still a fake and a fraud. I can see how it’s so easy for you to relate to a cardboard cutout of Obama in your bedroom. I really can. Shhhh!!! I won’t tell anybody.

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        No one could tell it wasn’t the real thing. Both share the same dimensionality,.

    • Cruz2016!!!

      Voter fraud got him re-elected….that’s why you see smaller crowds….get off the kool aid and grow up already!

    • J.N. Ashby

      I fail to see how 51.1% of the popular vote counts as “whipping,” at best it would count as “edging” or “squeezing” out a victory.

  • lillymckim

    More law enforcement than people

  • Shawn

    I know the reason why, I really do….it is because the people that could actually afford to go to the inauguration, won’t do it because they voted for Romney. You can’t expect a person on welfare to make it to DC.

  • auh2064

    It’s been a little colder out since Obama ended global warming, that’s all.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    Bwahahaha, I can’t stop laughing…our media is a joke…and just gets worse year after year!

  • lcky9

    even my husband didn’t turn on the evening news so we didn’t have to hear the OBOZO.. watched shows that I missed the first time around,, hey BONES was a good series

  • michael s

    Please tell me the crowd count for Pres Romney ‘s inauguration?

    • lainer51

      same number as Gore’s and Kerry’s.
