What Happens In Vegas: Romney Photoshops Henderson Crowd

Oh, my word. I understand why politicians might want to inflate their momentum. You know, make it seem like there is more wind in their sails than there really is. Sometimes these things are more about perception than reality. For instance, in the first debate, President Obama did badly. But the legend grew that Mitt Romney did fantastically, unbelievably, amazingly WELL!!! Not true. The whole affair was a stultifying, sleep-inducing, unenjoyable slog. But the legend will live on, regardless of what happens on November 6.

looks a little odd, your eyes are not deceiving you.

But if your campaign is going to fudge the facts. . .tart up history in a frilly frock if you will. . .do it right! This attempt at crowd inflation is a sad, sorry affair. It should never have been allowed to see the light of day. Then again, the Romney campaign has seen fit to ignore fact checkers, and continue campaigning with known, provable falsehoods, so why not?  If Toto pulled back the curtain, and Romney was really Professor Marvel, they'd move along as though it never happened. And their supporters hate the President enough to go along with it.

  1. Oh, you mean like when Obama was at my school and the democrats said they had 10,000 people at the rally, even though in reality, they had maybe half that amount?

  2. I have no idea if they exaggerated the claim at the Obama rally. But did they photoshop a fake crowd?
