Running out of gas..

Drudge headline this morning:

CLINTON PLAYS TO HIGH SCHOOL GYM:
TWO-THIRDS EMPTY


Here is an excerpt from the underlying article. I added emphasis:

While the crowd hoisted signs that stated “Virg Surge,” the turnout at the rally was anemic. More than 500 people came to the rally, but the gym at Renaissance High School was only about one-third full, even though Clinton used to command full houses wherever he went, especially in Detroit.

Politician after politician exhorted the crowd to not let the polls keep them from voting on Nov. 2.

“They think that if they tell you often enough that you’re not doing well that you won’t go to the polls,” U.S. Rep. John Conyers said. “But we’re not buying that malarkey. If Detroit turns out as it has in the past, we win.”

..while it is delicious to consider the prospect of the Democrats only marketable commodity losing traction, probably a lot of this can be laid at the feet of younger people not knowing about Clinton's aura. (Or, perhaps more of them coming to learn his reputation.)

Other little tidbits associated with this news item over at Drudge are evocative of the crap sandwich that the Dems have served up to America over the last 22 months:

RI Dem: Obama can 'take his endorsement and shove it'...
'He ignored us and now he's coming into Rhode Island treating us like ATM machine'...
Debt Has Increased $5 Trillion Since Speaker Pelosi Vowed, 'No New Deficit Spending'...
States Weigh Letting Noncitizens Vote...

Ah ... that's just too too bad!

Well he is backing a losing candidate for governor in Bernaro. Recent polling has him trailing Rick Snyder along the lines of 52% - 27%.

It's hard to draw people to a losing candidate no matter who is speaking.
