If anyone doubts President Obama has not only wasted all his political capitol with the nation, but has also generated a huge wave voter anger for failing to make ‘the [unemployment] waters recede’, they only need to look at WI this week to see just how toxic the first two years of Obama, Reid and Pelosi have been to the Democrat caucus. The administration touted a rally in WI this week as the biggest political event since 2008 (ignoring all the Tea Party events and Glenn Beck’s historic gathering in DC).
When Obama steps onto a grass quad at the University of Wisconsin on Tuesday, he will deliver a newly tailored, more personalized campaign appeal aimed at ginning up enthusiasm, according to White House and senior Democratic officials. Plouffe said Obama will remind students of the work they put into his 2008 campaign and warn them that if they don’t re-engage now, “all that could be jeopardized.”
The lack of support for President Obama’s slick but vacuous messaging has made just getting a crowd to attend the event a tough challenge.
But where he drew a crowd of 17,000 at the University of Wisconsin in 2008 during the presidential race, crowds are expected to be significantly smaller this time around — so much so that the president’s campaign team, Organizing for America, is sending out RSVP requests for Tuesday’s rally, featuring musician Ben Harper.
According to The Washington Post, the students at University of Wisconsin-Madison are typical of the enthusiasm gap that Democrats recognize is eating away at their chance to keep the majority in Congress.
The stunner in all this is that the endangered Democrat incumbent Senator Russ Feingold is not even going to attend, the President and his liberal allies in DC are so toxic!
Democratic Party Chairman Timothy Kaine says he sees no slight in Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold skipping a campaign rally tonight where President Barack Obama is appearing on his behalf.
The Democrats have run out of lipstick to cover this pig of an election cycle. It is not a slight that one of the most liberal Democrats in the Senate is afraid to be seen with the most liberal President in memory, after said liberal Democrat Party passed endless liberal fantasy legislature? Yeah, things are going just great for the Dems, as long as you live in complete denial.
