Maybe They Could Fill The In 'N Out Burger...


Remember last week, when 75,000 folks from all walks of life streamed into a Portland park to see Barack Obama and we wondered if anything could bring that many folks out to see, say, John McCain.

Well, if it was going to happen, you'd think that hometown Pheonix Arizona just might be the place.

Wouldn't you?

Well, actually, no:
Phoenix Business Journal - May 23, 2008A
Tuesday (May 27th) fundraiser headlined by President Bush for U.S. Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign is being moved out of the Phoenix Convention Center.

Sources familiar with the situation said the Bush-McCain event was not selling enough tickets to fill the Convention Center space, and that there were concerns about more anti-war protesters showing up outside the venue than attending the fundraiser inside.

Another source said there were concerns about the media covering the event.

Bush's Arizona fundraising effort for McCain is being moved to private residences in the Phoenix area. A White House official said the event was being moved because the McCain campaign prefers private fundraisers and it is Bush administration policy to have events in public venues open to the media. The White House official said to reconcile that the Tuesday event will be held at a private venue and not the Convention Center.

Convention Center personnel confirmed the event has been canceled at their venue.

'Nuff said.
