Fear And Loathing 2012: Mitt-Mentum?

05 October 2012 @ 10:30


Stacy McCain has filed a report from the Romney/Ryan Rally held in Fisherville, Virginia last night.

There were so many people that showed-up, Stacy, other members of the press, and VMI Cadets were denied entrance by the Fire Marshall. Those thousands denied entry stayed, which is quite unusual…and telling.

Being the top-notch shoe leather reporter he is, Stacy made lemonade out of the situation by wandering around the outside crowd. He filed a report over at The American Spectator this morning. A highlight:

FISHERVILLE, Virginia — Randy Goettge left Leesburg about 3:30 p.m. Thursday and the normal drive time should have gotten him to the Romney-Ryan "Victory Rally" here by the announced start time of 6 p.m. Unfortunately for Goettge, about 10,000 other Virginians had similar plans, producing what was surely the biggest traffic jam in the history of Augusta County. Traffic was backed up for miles in every direction — all the way from the Highway 285 exit to Interstate 81 four miles west — and by the time Goettge found a place to park and walk the final mile to the Augusta Expo Center, it was 7:30 p.m. and the gates were already closed.

Goettge was by no means alone. Thousands more late-arriving supporters — some of whom had driven from as far away as Richmond and the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. — stood on a hillside across from the outdoor arena where a fired-up sign-waving crowd was packed to fire-code capacity. However, the sound system was powerful enough to be heard at a quarter-mile distance and the giant TV screen was visible from the hillside, providing Goettge and the overflow crowd with an excellent view of the proceedings.

The massive turnout was proof that Mitt Romney’s stunning victory in Wednesday’s debate struck a spark of excitement, reviving a campaign that had sustained a month-long battering of negative media coverage….

He also filed a backgrounder over at his own joint [also, check out his morning-after report from yesterday]. A highlight:

So I asked one of the cops about the arena capacity, and he said officially it seats 5,000, but I could see there were easily another thousand people standing, inside the security perimeter, but outside the seating area. A Secret Service agent said she’d been told the campaign had issued 10,000 tickets online. Walking back out to the road, where the crowd was standing on the hillside, I estimated at least another 2,000, and the cars were still lined up bumper to bumper coming in.

And these people were totally fired-up….

Let us hope this enthusiasm carries Willard to a smashing Electoral victory on 06 November.

But let us also not forget the words of Sarah Palin after the Debate:

"Now we have to be aware in the next couple debates also if Mitt Romney continues to gain and gain and gain just by being truthful and experienced and intelligent, that doing a good job as a presidential candidate, these guys in the Obama camp, they’re not going go down without swinging. They’re going pull something," former Governor Sarah Palin warned after tonight’s debate.

"And the American public, with the media’s help, these lapdogs in the media, kind of going along with what Obama and his people want to do to shake some things up if Mitt Romney continues to do so well. The American public just needs to be aware that they’ve got to do their own home work, don’t rely on the shelter of the media, and just be aware something could be pulled here to turn things around if Mitt Romney continues to gain so much ground," the 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee said to Sean Hannity on FOX.

You just Axelrod and Jarrett are plotting and planning as your read this. They’re getting desperate — and you know how cornered animals react.

Let us also heed Jeff Goldstein:

I honestly want to be more sanguine. And I was very pleased with Romney’s demeanor last evening; he didn’t fear the President as McCain clearly did (and still does), and he refused to let the President mischaracterize his record or his policy plans.

The problem is, he did that once during a debate. After allowing the President and his campaign and the activist media in bed with the Democrats create an entirely different picture of Romney, one that he now has to beat back.

And time is running out.

Willard has a big mountain to climb in the next month and he will be fighting Chicago Thugs the whole time.

Regarding this next item, I quote it without comment, as I haven’t decided whether or not to believe it. All I know is Kevin DuJan has been accurate on a number of things about Obama in the past:

Obama was injected with amphetamines or something before the debate and they wore off about 20 minutes in. Here in Chicago, word on the street for the last month has been that Valerie Jarrett was specifically tasked with getting Obama off coke and other drugs before the debates so that he would not embarrass himself on stage for an hour and a half. So, word is that Obama’s been detoxing since at least September. This explains how haggard he’s looked and how prickly he’s acted for a while now…it’s what addicts look and act like when they’re cut off from their drugs. Remember that a President can have whatever drugs he wants. The Secret Service are not there to keep the president from breaking the law, they are just there to keep him alive. Obama’s main drug suppliers are the junior staffers who work in the White House who go to Lafayette Park and buy him whatever he wants…and he also gets special deliveries from his friend Bobby Titcombe in Hawaii, who brings him “fish and poi” to the White House (that’s Hawaiian slang for “weed and coke”). To get through the almost two hours of being on TV, Obama looks like he needed a big injection of beta-blockers and/or amphetamines. If you noticed at the beginning of the debate he was talking fast, acting erratic, and blinking like CRAZY he was still jazzed up by whatever they gave him. About twenty minutes later, it seems like the adrenaline in his system from being in front of the crowd might have caused the uppers to wear off…and his energy levels collapsed after that. By the end of the debate, Obama looked like he was aching for a new fix. This could be the reason Michelle Obama rushed him off stage and skipped the traditional “let’s waive to the crowd for a while” schtick. She could tell he needed to get out of sight because he totally lost it out there.

I report, you decide.

Mrs. B. and I did get the impression he was ‘on something’ Wednesday Night.

    I lean towards it because I was a musician in the 1980’s and saw a lot of users.

      The notion that the president is getting his dope off the street is preposterous throwing doubt on the creditability of the whole story.

      Not relevant.

      Publicly suggesting that the President is on dope is the kind of thing I would expect to see at Huffpo or Kos, not at professional, adult and responsible blogs.

        I only bring these things up because there’s so much we don’t know about Obama. Regarding Kevin DuJan: He’s opemly homosexual and has a rather good GayDar, but, having dealt with such people in the music business, I am fully aware that they are often quite melodramatic and over-the-top, but amidst all their queenery, you often find kernals of the truth. I think if Obama was on anything that night it was Metoprolol, which is a drug I take for high blood pressure, but which has street value and is used often by people who have to speak in public. If you take too much, it can slow you down and befuddle you.

        As to Obama being on the Down Low: I’ve heard enough anecdotal evidence to believe it to be true. Combine that with his classic Narcissism and his upbringing, and you have even more reason to believe.

    I have not been able to put words on what bothered me so much about the debate; I know how many days I waited for someone to put Obama and his pompous, condescending attitude in check, however, I started to feel “uncomfortable” and even worst the next day while I reveled in our President’s demise. That is when it started to make sense: Obama did not have “something pressing on his mind” or “worries about America” that perhaps the public was not privy to. He has never presented any behavior of concern or distraction, not even when Ambassador Stevens body was dragged through the streets of Benghazi; Obama looked more aggravated that he had to address the press back then. Now that I look back on the behavior at the debate, the rapid speech, run on sentences and overall no sense, I see that Mr. Dujan may have a point. It is a point that makes me happy to know that I am still too naive (for lack of a better word) when it comes to the Office of the President. I KNOW what people do, but the President? And I know more than the average woman who watches the local 6 o’clock news to get the weather report! So, I am seeing how America has been duped. “Not OUR president…THE President”. I guess I, too, still get wrapped up in forgetting that our President (and all of his predecessors) is human. I trust my instincts and have always believed that this man’s heart has never been in the country he is serving. Addiction, to power or anything that starts out as feeling good, is just bad and we all know this; it’s 2012 for crying out loud. However, things make so much sense when put in that light. I guess I would rather believe that our President is an addict rather than a narcissist who has no care for the office he has been elected to. Now I feel bad.

    Nothing would surprise me with this imposter. I also read that he really doesn’t want to be president anymore. I wonder if the 35 million dollar, beachfront home in Hawaii is some kind of payoff? Where would he get the money to buy a home like that? And what about the upkeep?

    I can’t go with the dope idea here.

      Waaaay too good to be true. And if he’s using, the dope certainly doesn’t come from Lafayette Park or 12th street.

    I think it’s kind of interesting that Maher mentioned that O spent his million dollar contribution on weed; Rush mentioned Vallium; and the NYT’s article mentioned Xanax.
