1. The video I seen had maybe 75 or 80 people, tops

it was an early video but I didn't see anyone streaming in as the reporter said who was covering it. "Yeah we can see people streaming in, is what he said," paraphasing. What I seen was a few milling around, not people streaming in as he implied.
Republicons LIE, have since the sixties, maybe even before but I know about since the sixties cause I've been paying attention to them. After all the congress critters sent me to an illegal war too. Illegal, if you say, well how can what we did to the Vietnamese have been Legal I ask?

15. 18k + overflow. The 360 of Mitt had empty space, even as he spoke.

More disinformation to be his "game changer" this week. They're touting his bus tour as a big turning point.. so they're no doubt bussing more evangelicals and mormons in for it, AGAIN.

And they specifically put nothing but WOMEN behind him.

9. Denver Post says 7,000 as reported by the Romney campaign.

http://www.denverpost.com/recommended/ci_21615382

Romney campaign officials said about 7,000 people attended the evening rally in a football field at D'Evelyn Junior/Senior High School. Romney will host another rally in Pueblo tomorrow.





Again 99.9% white.

18. Looks like there was a Black person and a Hispanic person there.

Miraculously right behind Romney where the cameras can catch them. One has to wonder whether the delay that Romney had getting to the stage was caused by his handlers having to find a Black and/or Hispanic person in the crowd and get them behind the podium.

10. That Bay Buchanan woman said it was 10,000!

A DUer said in a post last night that the event was advertised in the paper.

Channel 9 reporter said that the event was "highly produced" and there was a LIVE Band.

So the question is, were people there to see Mittens or to see what all the hubbub was about and catch some live music?

11. So what, he got 7k white people to show up on a Sunday night, big deal!!

And I was the DU'er that saw the advertisement in a local paper in Denver, I saw this at Kos, I do not have the link. But it was a nice size ad at the bottom of the page extolling his sheeple to "come on down"... I think we should take the word of the Denver Post about the attendance and move on.

I bet the Obama people are seeing this and can see a big big event coming very soon to show them how WE roll...

12. Oh I don't really care - just reporting what the Romney campaign is trying to put out there....

I know damn good and well Team O does not need ads, busloads of people brought in or live bands just to perk up some enthusiasm.

Just makes me mad that these people will do and say anything to prop up their wonder boy despite evidence to the contrary.

17. You completely miss the point.

If republicans are reporting and are worried about crowd size, republicans are losing. Forget the number that they report, ignore it because republicans will exaggerate that number.
