Mitt Romney And Kid Rock Outdraw Katy Perry And President Obama

The Hollywood Reporter notes a big Obama campaign event:

An estimated 20,000 people turned out Saturday In Milwaukee for an Obama rally, featuring a mini-concert by Katy Perry, who donned a tight blue dress with the president’s reelection slogan “Forward.”

…Saturday marked the singer’s third appearance on the campaign trail for Obama. She’s consistently been one of the president’s most popular rally performers. More than 13,000 turned out to see Obama and Perry in Las Vegas last month. At that show, the singer donned a tight white dress imprinted with a giant ballot. At a concert fundraiser in Los Angeles, the pop star wore a red, white and blue cape and a Statue of Liberty outfit. Perry designs the Obama dresses herself, then styles theme with her team.

Obama took the stage following Perry’s performance in Milwaukee. He told the crowd: “I just have to say Katy has been working so hard these last couple of weeks, and I’m so grateful to her.”

Gone are the days of giant Obama crowds. Now he really needs his celebrity support.

Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is packing them in. His Ohio rally with Kid Rock, Bobby Jindal, John McCain, Rubio, and Rudy Giuliani drew 30,000. There hasn’t been a detailed analysis done, but the anecdotal evidence is that Romney is outdrawing the President all over the place.

Drudge really nailed it with this:

And yes, this is whole thing is a pretty good excuse to post some Katy Perry picture. Politics aside, she seems like a pretty decent person and I know my kids love her music.

    Yeah, but are they there to see Katy or to see Barry?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001951614348 Rogue Rose

      Easy enough to calculate. When he wasn’t appearing with Katy he drew a crowd of 2,800 at the Senior High gymnasium in Lima, Ohio.

    • Sam G Jr

      17,200 were there to see KT. I’d be there too…..she is too cute to pass up even if I disagree with her politics.

    Is that draw before or after PHOTOSHOP

  • 914

    The crowd dwindled to 257 after Katy left.

  • Tanuki Man

    The former Mrs. Russell Brand’s life choices are highly questionable.

    Wow, let’s see what happens on Tuesday, asswipe wizzer. Typical bagger — you’ll post pictures because she’s cute but not because she has her head on straight as far as politics. I doubt RMoney got that many people to attend because of that stupid fuck redneck Kid Rock. And even then, quality versus quantity kicks in. Really, so we should all eat shit, because 100 billion flies can’t be wrong. So, how about YOU eat shit and die. Don’t have a nice day!

    • OCTruth

      Spoken like a true, well-”educated” liberal. Obama must be proud to have the support of people like you. Can’t wait for Romney to be announced as the next president-elect on Tuesday night.

    • lasveraneras

      Anybody else vote to throw this Obamabot off the island, i.e. a lifetime ban? This mindless, four letter frothing at the mouth is really quite beyond the pale, particularly on a Sunday morning. He actually makes our other lefty trolls look like intellectual giants.

    • HindaRifka

      Typical obama supporter; when truth & logic appear they just yell obscenities and stomp their feet. Funny how lame street media won’t publish the Stevie Wonder debacle, or the Fauxcohontas rally where NO ONE showed up, but a free Katy Perry concert & its all over the press. Here’s the deal, Bob; the days of massive fawners are long gone, no more 80K crowds, and most intelligent people can see that the emperor has no clothes. After almost 4 years of crippling debt and massive unemployment coupled with a monumental number of executive orders and an almost totalitarian attitude towards civil liberties, your candidate has lost the rabid love and fanatical devotion of all but the most gullible and of course, the black vote. Because nothing says racism like voting for someone solely on the basis of they’re the same color as me. Now Bob, go ahead and scream racist, because after cursing & stomping your feet like toddlers, you Libs always cry racist next. See Bob, that’s how you offer an opinion without cursing or acting like a mean-spirited spoiled brat with a blatant disregard for others.

      What are you complaining about. The left has declared that women are nothing more than the utility of their reproductive organs. It’s more than a little ironic that when your side treats women like prostitutes that you complain that others appreciate a woman’s figure.

      No doubt you would prefer if everyone who disagreed with you could be thrown in prison. If obama wins Tuesday I am sure you will get your chance to see that happen.

    • LiberalNightmare

      Really? Your taking political advice from Katy Perry and you expect to be taken seriously here?

    • bella131

      Baggers? Screaming your perverted sexual proclivity on a forum looks bad for you and even worse for obama supporters. Your filthy scree is hilarious, and typical of all obama worshipers, it’s all you’ve got. Those 30,000 people were there to hear a message of positivity, America’s exceptionalism, and something I’d wager you know nothing about, love for America. Sadly for you and your ilk, you have no credibility, no plan, no life and no point.
      Hahaha! BUH BYE!

    • retired.military

      Gee most of your posts Bobs mentions teabagging. Not self projecting are you?

      Where did all these trolls suddenly come from?

      Anyway, see you on Wednesday, Bob. Oh, no, wait. No, we won’t, because you’ll have run away with your tail between your legs.

  • LiberalNightmare

    Artistically speaking, Katy Perry has a nice rack and its fun to watch her jump around.

      Worth the price of admission.

      • Carl

        Yeah, but is she one of those sluts who take birth control pills?

        • jim_m

          I’ll bet she has opinions on taxation, immigration, foreign policy and the debt that she finds meaningful, but that you dismiss on account of her gender.

        • retired.military

          Are you saying only sluts take birth control pills?

        • 914

          You really are a foul mouthed little troll!! Show some respect to a Lady you chauvinist gnome..

    Good story about Gary Johnson possibly tipping the election:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/gary-johnsons-anti-drone-anti-ndaa-platform-may-take-out-obama-in-colorado-2012-11

    Nothing would make me happier than this.

    • http://opinion.ak4mc.us/ Scribe of Slog (McGehee)

      Which way?

      • Commander_Chico_Cognoscente

        Either way. The parties might wake up to the freedom agenda, instead of working for the Fear Department.

        • http://opinion.ak4mc.us/ Scribe of Slog (McGehee)

          So Romney winning Oregon would make you happy? Good to know.

          • Commander_Chico_Cognoscente

            Yes, if Gary Johnson is the factor it would be just punishment for Obama abandoning his campaign promises on the war, surveillance and police state.

    …Im not sure about your sources…. cuz i mean… Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, etc….are millions of times better than Kid rock n blah,blah,blah….Are you sure about what are you sayin?….the only reason because the people are not gonna vote for Obama is because racism!!…in fact there was a poll that said that 60% of people under 35…will vote for Obama because Katy was promoting the vote…and in the United States are more young people than older people…so… you’re wrong!

    • Vagabond661

      Oh…….wow.

    • 914

      ‘the only reason because the people are not gonna vote for Obama is because racism!!.”

      I’m not voting for him cause he sucks!!

    • http://www.wizbangblog.com David Robertson

      the only reason because the people are not gonna vote for Obama is because racism,

      What false claim that is.

    • http://www.shockandblog.com/ Jay McHue

      Race card played! Everyone take a drink!

    • http://opinion.ak4mc.us/ Scribe of Slog (McGehee)

      Thank you for your opinion. Come back in 2016 when you’re old enough to vote.

    • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

      Wow.

      Your detailed and well-sourced analysis of all the complex issues that go into who to vote for this year is everything we’ve come to expect from the typical Obama voter.

  • fuckjindal

    So this is where our great governor is while the homeless and mentally ill wonder the streets killing people, since you know we didn’t need any of those state facilities. The old and disabled didn’t need that care, because obviously they can take care of themselves, right. and were still waiting on you to explain how your going to balance that budget?

    • Brucehenry

      Huh? Where did THAT come from?

      • retired.military

        Bruce. I have no clue where he is coming from. I think he is referring to when the dems raised so much cain that the rights of the mentally ill were being violated by institutionalizing them thus causing them to be released into the general public. How that plays into this thread I have no clue.

      Where has Obumbler been? Golfing?

    Nothing decent about that Kate Perry and Barack Obama arrangement. Nothing decent about Barack Obama´s sex-ads either!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/susannewesthlarsen Susanne Westh Larsen
