5 May 2012 OBAMA RALLY - The Supporters - Romney Campaign LIE EXPOSED





Proof the Right Used Pre-Rally Picture To Claim Obama Arena Was Empty



The right has tried to claim that the arena was empty for Obama’s Ohio rally, but an analysis of the photo reveals that the picture was taken before the president went on stage.



Here is the picture of the “empty” arena:






Here a picture of Obama taking the stage at 1:20 PM ET:







Here is a view of the upper bowl that the right didn’t want you to see:




(That arena looks so empty with all of those people in it).




By comparing the first two photographs, we can see two things that prove that picture of Obama “failure” was taken before the event began. Notice that the crawler between the lower and upper bowls is blank in the first photograph, but once event began, the crawler/scoreboard featured a blue Obama/Biden logo. Secondly, check out the lighting in the first photograph.



If you look closely, you can see the shadows cast by the people standing on floor. The lighting likely wasn’t at full power, in other words the stage lighting is not on. As anyone who has ever been to a concert knows, the stage lights aren’t turned on until an act takes the stage. The house lights, which are the lights beneath the retired jersey banners, are used pre-event, post-event, and during intermissions. The photo was likely taken before the event because the people in the first photo are looking towards the stage. There also people in the stands, and there aren’t any visible people moving or heading for the exits. It looks like the crowd is waiting for the event to start, which suggests that President Obama wasn’t even on stage at the time the photograph was taken. Drudge and Breitbart’s evidence is a photograph that was taken when Obama wasn’t speaking.



The so called empty arena wasn’t empty at all. Over 14,000 people showed up in Columbus to kick off Obama’s reelection campaign.



Here are more pictures of the empty arena.

4. I bet a lot of Republiclowns get bent out of shape because they're playing America the Beautiful

and not the Star Spangled Banner. I remember years ago there were people who were advocating changing the national anthem to America the Beautiful. I'm sure the right wingers would lose their ever-lovin' minds (tiny though they may be) if this were ever given serious consideration. Because we all know that just like In God We Trust and One Nation Under God, The Star Spangled Banner has been with us since the beginning... Right?

9. We should change our National Anthem to, "This Land is Your Land."

And it should be the Mojo Nixon version...

I have always preferred America The Beautiful to the SSB. Even more I would like This Land Is Your Land.

6. Thank You! The right made no bones about the fact that....

they were going to work hard to turn this president's strengths to their advantage. This is just one of those tactics. This is going to be a long slog, but it's definitely not going to be dull.

8. ABC was peddling the propaganda this morning

Claiming Obama's rallies are not as large as they were in 2008.

And it is because of the economy.

They did point out that Romney's rallies are rather smallish compared to Obama's.
