Hecklers interrupt Obama's Cincinnati rally (Libtards can dish it out but can't take it)
nbc ^ | 11/4/2012 | Ali Weinberg

As President Obama tried to maximize the precious few stops he has left in crucial Ohio, his rally here Sunday night was full of musical interludes, but not without a few interruptions. Taking the stage at the University of Cincinnati shortly after R+B superstar Stevie Wonder warmed up the crowd, the president was sidetracked by a lone protestor up in the rafters, who held a sign and yelled, his words loud but hard to make out.

“I guess y’all are still fired up,” Obama said as the crowd began a counter-chant of “four more years!” attempting to drown the heckler out.

At first the president tried to soldier through and deliver his remarks over the protestor, but he finally gave in as the crowd cheered on state troopers who pried the man away from the balcony bars he had grabbed onto.

But it wasn’t over yet – there was still one more protestor who had to be removed from the arena.

“It’s okay folks. Everybody, it’s okay. We’re good,” Obama said before once again giving up until the cheering and shouting subsided.

While people were leaving since Stevie Wonder was done.

No mention of crowd numbers.

From the Dayton newspaper: “Four years ago, he drew a crowd of 27,000 to Nippert Stadium at the University of Cincinnati on a chilly November night. Last night, a crowd that fire officials estimated at 15,500 – including 2,000 in an overflow room – showed up at Fifth Third Arena for a rally that also included a performance by Stevie Wonder, who led chants of “Fired up…ready to go,” before the rally and who ended it with “Sign, Sealed, Delivered,” a favorite song of Obama’s on the campaign trail.”

15,000 people to see Stevie Wonder is pathetic. Would anyone show up for obama if he wasn’t dragging out all these rock stars? I doubt it.

That crowd figure is a bold face lie .
I saw the wide range photo
The place was empty and the crowd was forced into one corner of the stage floor for the close crop photo . Fox had the real
Photo !

Isn't this the place where it was reported that only 200 People Showed Up, for the Stevie Wonder Concert? I think so (ha-ha).

I wonder if Barry likes the Rolling Stones too? If so this song is for him: It's all over now
And this one too: Brown Sugar oh-oh is that one ... 'Racist'??

Obama had to “soldier on” despite the heckler. Bush had to “soldier on” every time he stepped outside.

OK, but it looks like “no drama Obama” actually took it pretty well...

If the enthusiasm level for 0bama has dropped so precipitously, and the polls still say the race is a toss-up, i have to deduce that the democrats would have won this in a walking away landslide if they had an energetic and charismatic candidate who actually had any positive accomplishments.

That doesn’t speak well for the numbers of conservatives and libertarians.

I just had to include this little racist dig from further into the article...

Not even the president could resist – he was seen shuffling back and forth, modestly clapping to the beat.

Shuffling? Really? Only because it's from leftist NBC will this use of the race-charged word be overlooked.

It will be interesting to watch Zero’s meltdown when he loses. Watching the MSM meltdown tomorrow night should also be entertaining.

I’m looking forward to the concession speech. Think we’ll get it late Tuesday / early Wednesday? Or will we be subjected to court challenges and other nonsense from Zero?

No, but I would be interested in your point.

Is she a study in braille?

Going to the University of Cincinnati in downtown Cincinnati, blighted section of Cincinnati, and getting together a group of professors, students, and locals should be a piece of cake for any breathing liberal. I’m a UC grad. I know. That territory has been liberaldom for an entire 4 decades, minimum.

The good news: they beat Syracuse on Saturday. But, I’m sure that’s Hurricane Sandy’s fault.

Has Stevie Wonder ever campaigned for a White presidential candidate? Did he campaign for Clinton?

How about Another One Bites the Dust, Ain’t wasting Time No More, Ruby Tuesday, Born Free, and Halleijuh by the Mormon tabernacle Choir? I could probably go one for hours about this stuff.

I don’t like disruptors whoever is speaking. The idiot just makes our side look as bad as the libs. I’d like to think we’re better. Trying to stop or inhibit a political opponent from speaking is a fascist act...whether their side does it or our side does it.
