Obama's Latest Speech About The Economic "Recovery" Results In Mass Audience Exodus


Zero Hedge

20 October 2014

Yesterday, Obama made a rare campaign trail appearance in Maryland where he spoke in support of Democratic candidate for governor, Anthony Brown, proceeded with his usual bulletin of reading fabricated economic data off the teleprompter in which he highlighted improvements in US unemployment (if not the 46.5 million people on foodstamps or the 93 million Americans out of the labor force), a rebounding housing market (just as the bouncing dead cat is once again dead), the benefits of health insurance (if no mention of the disaster for small businesses that Obamacare now definitively is) a resurgent manufacturing sector (just don't look at this chart) even if he did point out the unfairness of families having "two folks working", and... a mass audience exodus followed.





This is how Reuters summarized it:

President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.

With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.

It has gotten so bad, "most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity," according to Reuters.

Here's why: "A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke, however, and a heckler interrupted his remarks."

And then this from the Free Beacon:

Many attendees of an Obama campaign rally headed for the exits shortly after the president began speaking Sunday evening.

Speaking at campaign rally in Maryland for Democratic candidate for governor Anthony Brown, Obama either ignored or didn’t notice the movement of attendees out of the event.

Reports were unclear if attendees left due to unhappiness with President Obama. Disapproval of the president is currently at an all-time high.

And then the eyewitness reports:

Lots of people, at least up front near where journalists are sitting, appear to be leaving this rally now that Obama has started speaking.

Steady stream of people leaving Maryland rally continues as Obama speaks. It's noticeable and noisy. They would have waited hours to get in.

One thing is clear: people have had enough of both hope and change.

  1. Good advice for Brits and Americans from our Aussie friends:

    Vote the Bastards Out - Flashmob

    Major political parties only give us a token democracy: they can easily be controlled by the elite. Vote for an independent you can trust; then let those elected by the people select a Prime Minster or President from amongst themselves to form the next government. It's harder for the elite to nobble every candidate than a couple of party leaders. The uncertainty will drive them mad.....

  2. Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change.
    The people we elect aren’t the ones calling the shots, says Tufts University’s Michael Glennon

    http://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2014/10/18/vote-all-you-want-the-secret-government-won-change/jVSkXrENQlu8vNcBfMn9sL/story.html?event=event25

    THE VOTERS WHO put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

    But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.


    Why did the face in the Oval Office change but the policies remain the same? Critics tend to focus on Obama himself, a leader who perhaps has shifted with politics to take a harder line. But Tufts University political scientist Michael J. Glennon has a more pessimistic answer: Obama couldn’t have changed policies much even if he tried.

    Though it’s a bedrock American principle that citizens can steer their own government by electing new officials, Glennon suggests that in practice, much of our government no longer works that way. In a new book, “National Security and Double Government,” he catalogs the ways that the defense and national security apparatus is effectively self-governing, with virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. He uses the term “double government”: There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy...

    1. I agree, FEDUP.

      The system won't change until it is held to account. The nation's founders gave it a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, and the 2nd Amendment to defend it against tyranny, yet the public does nothing: it does not hold to account a policeman pepper-spraying peaceful protestors; it does not hold to account a judge who gaols a young mother for not mowing her lawn; it does not hold to account Supreme Court judges for favouring corporations; it does not hold to account corrupt congressmen breaking their oath of office; it does not hold to account security agencies for assassinating heads of state, including their own, supporting terrorism and drug-running; it does not hold to account the mainstream media for its lies and propaganda; it does not hold to account the military for destroying countries that are of no threat and for raping and murdering innocent women and children; it does not hold to account a rigged election system; it does not hold to account crooked bankers, oligarchs and corporations; it does not hold to account a President who is not eligible for office but who signs into law the NDAA and wages proxy wars.

      Democracy, for all its shortcomings, cannot work if the voting public are misinformed or willfully ignorant; too dumbed-down or indifferent to make rational decisions, the voting rigged and there is too little transparency, accountability and feedback control.

      If it's of any consolation, it's not much better elsewhere. America held such promise but its light of freedom was allowed to dim, and is now close to extinction.

  4. Federal Prosecutor Alleges Boss Pressured Him To Engage in ‘Unethical Conduct'; Judge Calls Abuses ‘Egregious,’ ‘Pervasive,” and “Reprehensible”

    In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice.
