Low turnout for Barack Obama rally in Green Bay, Wisc. (http://www.suntimes.com/news/politics/obama/1178184,obamarally092208.article)
McCain/Palin drew 4,000 more supporters at same venue a week ago


GREEN BAY, Wis. — Hoping to shore up support in his suddenly undependable backyard, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama flew here Monday to talk about how he’d handle economic crises as president.

Recent polls have shown that Wisconsin — once pretty solidly in Obama’s column — is now a statistical dead heat between Obama and Republican John McCain.


Just a week ago, John McCain and his vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin — who can bring out crowds the way Obama can — appeared in this same stadium, Resch Center, to a crowd of 10,000 fans. There were an uncharacteristic amount of empty orange seats for Obama’s rally.

Was it Kerry that called it Lambert field?

It probably had something to do with "Packer game hangovers", since they lost to the Cowboys last night. I'm sure that's how the Obama campaign will spin it. :D

The only reason Gore and Kerry carried WI in the last two election was because of voter fraud. WI is one of the worst states in the union regarding voter fraud. To boot, ACORN, a group Obama used to lead, is one of the worst offenders when it comes to voter fraud. WI is a conservative state. There is no doubt that if it was a real one-man-one-vote state, it would go to McCain. Instead, McCain needs to win by 5,000-7,500 voted to overcome the Democratic fraudsters who vote 10 times. It's worse in WI than it was in Chicago in the 60's and 70's. It's ridiculous.

Not much of a supprise, I saw a few mins of Obama speaking, and his jokes were not working. Also most of what he said were lies anyway. No doubt he is on the way out.

GAME OVER NOBAMA!

Nobody wants your anti-American socialist garbage here!

Go hide in a cave with Osama, Obama.

I am so tired and bored of seeing Barack Hussein Obama campaigning. When will he please just disappear already? His motto of change is a joke especially since he is from tax and Stroger Chicago. If people think he is going to be any different, they are wrong. People in Wisconsin are getting wise that he does not and never has known what he is doing. Voter fraud is rampant. We just received in the mail another illegal who is using our address to receive their voter registration card. I'm fed up. Obama supports these criminals and will do nothing to help the citizens of the U.S.
