We find numerous reports of our commander and chief’s visit to Milwaukee. We read 18,000 plus, nearly 20,000 brave rain, 5000 people and thousands more. Was there really that many people who came out to see the president. Here are some stories about his visit.

MILWAUKEE – President Barack Obama made a stop in Wisconsin for only the second time this year.
This trip was all about fundraising and touching base with voters to try and maintain, or even boost, his slim lead over rival Mitt Romney.
And the President made it clear he was on the side of the Middle Class.
“Top down economic never works,” President Obama faulted Romney’s economic plan as he spoke before a supportive crowd at a fundraising event at the Milwaukee Theatre.
Supporters paid anywhere from $250 to $25,000 a ticket for the private events planned in the afternoon.
Then the President continued his attack on the GOP ticket in front of an estimated 18,000 people at the Summerfest grounds along the lakeshore.

Nearly 20,000 brave rain to see Obama in Milwaukee
Obama fires up supporters, raises money here
Obama energized his supporters who filled the 5,000-seat BMO Harris Pavilion, along with thousands more who sat in bleachers and stood on the pavement beyond the protection of the roof, even as wind and rain lashed down in the latter moments of the near 30-minute speech.

From the JSOnline report, 13,000 plus people stood outside in the rain while only 5,000 were able to be inside to listen to the president. Who is trying to fool who here?
Who counted these people? You mean to tell us they nearly filled up half of Miller Park? If you watch the video at Fox 11 or look through the JSOnline picture gallery, you see no images of the giant 18,000 plus estimated crowd. If it was so great, wouldn’t someone show the massive crowd? If someone has an image of the 18,000 plus crowd, let us know where to find it. We would like to see it.
This is how the media is trying to pump up Obama but it’s not working. The media counts crowds like the government counts jobs added to the economy. They have been exaggerated to help give support to President Obama and also to give republicans a reason not to vote. The giant crowds mean the election is over and Barack has won. Stay home this November.
People see through all this. Again, if anyone has proof of the 18,000 plus crowd, please send us the information.
