    Yep, it's a clear lie of omission that the right wing jackasses were pushing.

    Here's the arena when Obama was speaking:

    Anyone who uses Drudge as a source is a complete idiot.

    There were 4300 empty seats in an arena that held about 20,000 .. thus, roughly a fifth of the seats were empty.

    Those are the facts.

    Is the Obama Administration concerned about the empty sets after they put so much work into filling the venue?

    Absolutely they are.

    The reality is that Obama is not as popular with independants or even the left as he once was.

    This election is not a given.

    Drudge claimed the arena was less than half full. He used a photo, given him by the Romney campaign, taken quite awhile before the start of the event. This is a lie, that right wingers on this board were repeating. That's the point. It's not whether you believe or don't believe Obama is going to beat Romney. It whether Romney is going to continue to use lies in his attacks.

    They are ALL liars .. including Obama.

    Drudge is to news what the WWE is to sport. It isn't.

    Romney is going to lie as long as his lips can move.

    My point was that was some truth to the empty seats argument. There is not the same enthusiasm for Obama as there was before voters knew what they were getting.

    Actually, Drudge is pretty much just links to other news sources these days. In fact I would bet that if one had clicked on the link Drudge had provided with the photo and the headline about empty seats it would have taken the reader to some newspaper's site. It's been a long time since Drudge broke any real news.

    he at least uses facts to make his arguements.
