Feel the heat … coming off the empty pavement

Harris/Biden were in Arizona this week. And, boy howdy, could you feel the heat!

I mean, look at this crowd!

Feel the heat … coming off the empty pavement

Can’t you just feel the heat?!

Yeah, no. Neither can I.

I’ve seen more people on the sidelines of a pee wee soccer game.

I’m not familiar with Arizona. Is Yuma a tiny one-horse town? Does it have a population of a few dozen people? Is this the best they could muster?

Okay, I just looked it up. Yuma, Arizona has a population of over ninety thousand. Can’t you just feel the heat?!

Did Team Biden not let them know they’d be visiting? Seems unlikely since they arrived in a gaudy bus.

When the supporters who turn up to see you could all fit comfortably on your campaign bus, this is not a good sign.

You wouldn’t know the election is less than a month away.

At first when I saw that tweet, I thought this Charlene Fernandez was being rather tongue-in-cheek – you know, like most of us are when we talk about the “crowds” turning out to see Biden.

But Charlene Fernandez is the Arizona House Democrat Leader.  Her Twitter feed is full of Harris/Biden love. So I’m guessing she unironically tweeted this photo thinking it made the Democrat ticket look good.

The replies are, well… Let’s just say, if sarcasm was sold by the ounce, those replies would cost more than the gross national product of most European nations.

Can’t you just feel the heat? Problem is, the heat in question is radiating off the vast expanse of empty pavement surrounding this tiny group of Biden voters.

I think more people were eating at the diner in my small hometown the day Ivanka Trump visited.

That’s about the same number of people who arrive three days early to get to the front of the line for an upcoming Trump rally.

Actually, that’s probably inaccurate. I’m thinking the folks who camp out for days to see President Trump probably outnumber this gaggle of Biden voters by quite a bit.

Charlene’s picture sends a powerful message – just not the message she thinks it sends.

The election is twenty-five days away and the Biden campaign has all the heat of a soggy dish towel.

And while Harris/Biden were garnering the support of tens of people in Arizona, President Trump was reaching tens of millions just by appearing on Rush Limbaugh’s show.

In fact, in addition to Rush, the President was also interviewed on the Mark Levin show, then he appeared on the number one watched cable news program, Tucker Carlson Tonight, where he did his first sit-down interview since his COVID diagnosis last week.

I keep saying never underestimate the importance of voter enthusiasm, or, for that matter, the enthusiasm gap.

The establishment wins when voter apathy is high. And in 2016, Donald Trump blew that up because he fired us up.

The media and the establishment responded by trying to dispirit us. They did it with endless “Trump has already lost this race” stories a month before the election. They did it by focusing on nonsense “Bombshell” stories – the most infamous being the Access Hollywood recording.

As I said back on October 21, 2016 in my column “Vote:”

The goal of the Enslaved Press and opinion polling is to create an air of inevitability around Hillary Clinton. Their hope is to dispirit you – to leave you feeling as if your vote will make no difference.

They want you to give up and stay home in November. Because that’s the only way Hillary Clinton can win.

But they’ve miscalculated. Their ability to sway you into staying home in defeat rests solely in how much voters trust what the Enslaved Press says.

And we don’t trust them anymore.

Here we are four years later and they’re doing it all over again.

But they have to. See, just like in 2016, the Democrats are again running a horrible candidate who has no hope of ginning up enthusiasm among Democrat voters.

So once again, the media and the establishment’s only hope is to dispirit us.

But we’re not dispirited. Are we?

Biden voters, on the other hand? Well, take a look at that picture again. You can’t feel the heat because there is no heat.

There is no excitement or enthusiasm.

The only way the media and the Biden campaign (same thing) can drive their voters to the polls is by ginning up anger. But as I said a few weeks ago, anger is a poor substitute for voter enthusiasm.

Which is why, when the rubber of the bus tires meets the parking lot, the best your campaign can muster is few dozen sign-holding supporters.

    Is Barney Fife in charge of crowd control? Where are all the Karens passing out bottles of water to the frenzied crowd? Everything about that ‘ticket’ is sad. More to be pitied than scorned. And yet, I can’t pity them. They are pathetic in a very ugly way.

    Cast their vote? They barely cast a shadow…

      LOL! That is priceless!

      Bloodsucking vampires don’t cast shadows!

    She’s also showing how pathetic she is as a leader if that’s the most people she could muster out for an appearance of a presidential candidate. She doesn’t have any highway workers or some similar blue collar civil service job she could promise (or threaten) with attendance at the “rally”?

    (Or did they just file the cemetery ballots with the county and it doesn’t make a rat’s ass bit of difference?)

    “I’ve seen more people on the sidelines of a pee wee soccer game.”

    I’ve seen more people waiting in line to get a colonoscopy!

    You’re right about the advance crowds for DJT. Here in Ohio if you’re not in line at least three days early, you’re not getting in. Like CPAC…. when the Boss spoke at CPAC back in February, we were in the ballroom at 6 AM. If you left to go pee, you weren’t getting back in!!!!

    Why dont they simply paint a crowd on the side of that bus Or fill the bus with surplus cardboard cutouts on loan from MLB and the NFL
    I realize everyone tries to paint themselves red, white, and blue but cmon man what’s with the go,…you know… you know…the thing, because the old coot seems to have “borrowed “ the red stripes from his old bosses logo.

    Look fat, Obama had a basket full of different slogans, that no one remembers . Except for maybe the hopey changey one, so the goofy slogan changes ( my soul is fine where it is thank you) are more proof the campaign wants to link those two 8 balls together.

    SloJo Biden has less heat than an 8yo girl pitching a softball.
    He sure likes to sniff and fondle them though.

    Everybody knows there is no enthusiasm for a demented old hack.-0-. What the democrats are counting on is the Trump hatred the media has been helping them stir up for four years will pay off in votes against,rather than votes for.

    Uh oh! I think one woman on the left side of the “crowd” is holding a Trump sign.

  • October 11, 2020 at 2:01 pm

    Yuma has a military base there that accounts for a decent part of that population. Marine Corps Air Station to be precise. Marines didn’t like Obama and they don’t like Biden.
