1. Wonder how many tour buses were lined up on the side of the road??

I am just kidding. There is NO enthusiasm gap except the one that the right-wing media/GOP/Mitt Romney pretends exists.

5. Actually there is a huge enthusiasm gap

Democrats are far more enthused than Republicans.

25. Same Point I Made During The DNC Convention

When you look at the usual yardsticks such as crowd size, enthusiasm on the convention floors and viewer watching the convention they all favored the Democrats. And one night the DNC had to compete with opening night of NFL. Yet the talking heads claim the DNC convention was all aimed at closing the enthusiasm gap. Say what? Yes, there are election risks -- especially all of the successful efforts by Republicans to surpress voter registeration and actual voting.

52. Obama's crowds look like AMERICA

And that's what the republicans can't get over.

Oh, sure, they have a little "diversity," too, but those individuals are just tokens and have no power or meaning in the greater context but are there for show.

8. There will never be such crowds for the GOP. This must scare them and is why M$M won't show it.

The campaign shots this year have been extraordinary, or the venues are much different than in the past. I haven't seen such crowds since the demonstrations of the sixties and seventies. These are the kinds of numbers needed to make social change, that energy can't be denied.

9. Sadly, the "four more years" salutes bear an unfortunate resemblance ...

... to the hijacked Roman salute, connected to the Nazis. (It was also the way all American school children were taught to salute the flag during the Pledge of Allegiance ... until WW2 made it distasteful.


That said... that's an AWESOME turnout! It ain't easy to get that many people out in the heat and humidity.

55. Well, I'm not as stupid as some of the above replies imply, ...

... and OF COURSE I noticed the camera-phones. I am, however, also informed by video of this SAME rally wherein the crowd was holding up four fingers and chanting "four more years!"

It's probably noteworthy that so many folks HAVE camera-phones ... and regard the rally as worth recording and photo-messaging.

My NEXT thought when I saw this photo is how the Reich Wing gutter residents might exploit such a photo and my "mind's eye" saw a juxtapositioned set of photos with the insanely specious slander about "Nazis." (Nevermind the fact that such a slander is mostly projection ... since the political faction most closely allied with fascism is today's GOP right wing.)

It's a small point and probably deserved no mention by me ... let alone the self-indulged insults made above.

11. Watched the C-Span Coverage of Rmoney yesterday in Iowa...

I happened to watch the C-Span delayed coverage of Rmoney in Iowa after the Obama event in New Hampshire. Rmoney gave his
speech and then went around thanking people. He had maybe 2 to 3 hundred people that I could tell. C-Span cameras didn't span the crowd as they did for the President in New Hampshire. But, if this is any indication of the crowds the Presdient is receiving, Mittens is in trouble.. All we need now, is for them to vote OBAMA-BIDEN in 2012!!!

14. wonder if the MSM will mention that Romney's BIG speech was at a private christian college,

poorly attended, and they bused in jr/sr. high kids from nearby Christians schools in the most conservative county in Iowa?

Doubt it. The majority of MSM are 1%ers themselves, and want that tax cut, even if it means screwing everyone else.. including their own relatives.

60. Well, the actual problem we have ....

... is that even if we can get Obama those "4 more years," he may still be saddled with a Republican Tea Party Congress.

I'm a bit disappointed that more isn't being done to make this election about the broader issue of Republican regressiveness -- though Clinton's speech did try highlighting the obstruction.

If you don't look too close you could think that most of the crowd is giving some salute with the raised hands....but those are people with cell phone cameras I think and their numbers suggest that they are the young demographics....not surprising to me.

Do not fail to vote you young folks... please.
