Obama video message booed at … Fenway Park? Update: Fan responds

posted at 12:31 pm on April 21, 2012 by Allahpundit

Well, it stands to reason. Massachusetts is a deep red state. Wait, what?

I held off blogging this yesterday in hopes that video would emerge but after almost 24 hours I’ve given up hope. It started when Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom tweeted:

At Red Sox game, President Obama comes on big screen to recognize Fenway’s 100th anniversary, followed by loud chorus of boos.

Partisan bias at work, right? Nope: A couple of sportswriters noticed the same thing when The One appeared onscreen. The video message was part of the elaborate pre-game ceremony celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fenway’s opening, replete with appearances from Sox legends like Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky, Carl Yastrzemski, Pedro Martinez, Jim Rice, Carlton Fisk, and on and on. The Yankees were in town too and both teams were in 1912 “throwback” uniforms. Point being, if ever there was a game where you’d expect lots of cell-phone video to be taken and posted on YouTube, this was it. And yet, when it comes to the stadium’s reaction to a presidential cameo, nada so far. Huh.

There is one video circulating online that purports to show O being booed by the crowd but it’s obviously not of yesterday’s game. Watch it here. Among the many problems with it: (a) the Sox were wearing white and the Yankees gray but the players in the vid are wearing red and blue; (b) it looks like a night game when yesterday’s game was played at 3 p.m. in bright sunshine; (c) I can’t hear any audio of Obama over the stadium speakers and it’s hard to believe the booing was so loud that he was completely drowned out; (d) Obama’s video would have been broadcast during the pre-game or between innings, but in the vid the booing’s happening while the game is being played. Anyone out there have real video from yesterday?

Exit question: Second look at turning Massachusetts red? Or were they booing him because, let’s face it, baseball fans have long memories when it comes to horrible play? They can forgive Buckner but no one can forgive this.

Update: Just received from reader John T.:

I was at the Red Sox game yesterday and can confirm the reported booing occurred, mixed with cheers at about a 50/50 ratio I’d say.

I think the reason there’s no video is because of the timing. The opening ceremony, which lasted about an hour, had officially ended and the game had begun. Most people, myself included, had stowed their phones and settled in for the game.

Obama’s message was brief, perhaps 10 seconds long, and began to play, I believe, after the first inning or half inning. It took me (and likely most others) by surprise, so there was little opportunity to catch the moment on video. As it turned out, there were other prerecorded messages played all game long between innings. Obama’s was just the first, and the only one booed. Most, if not all, of the other messages played were from people with Boston roots (e.g., Conan O’Brien, Dennis Leary, Mark Wahlberg), and they all received favorable reactions from the crowd.

Maybe they just didn’t want to be interrupted…

and I really hate these “so and so was booed at some event” stories… it’s so easy for a minority to drown out the majority when they’re just sitting still. It doesn’t matter who is being booed or doing the booing…

Oh my.

I guess that message wasn’t a homerun over the Green Monster.

I seriously doubt that Massachusetts will be flipping truly red any time soon. Perhaps the booing has more to do with Mr. Obama feeling he needs to insert himself into any big ocassion there is. Narcissist.

Thank you AP for blogging this. The video out there now is probably fake, but others will show up, although probably not from the local TV stations that covered it.

Callers to Howie Carr’s radio show last night reported on the event.

For those of you who live outside New England you gotta understand how big a deal this is. We’re talking Fenway here. Cathedral of baseball on a very important day in Red Sox nation. The 100th anniversary of Fenway, with no other team than the Hated New York Yankees. Hallowed ground.

And then Obama pops up on the Jumbotron monitor and the crowd booed him. Yankee fand and Red Sox fans alike. According to Howie’s callers the booing was loud and raucous.

The twitterverse lit up with the story and blogs all over are talking about it.

Key West Reader on April 21, 2012 at 12:49 PM

Man… I’d never paid attention to that clip of his throw before. I know he’s left handed, but that throw looked like something a right hander would do trying to use their left hand to throw. That throw looks like something I’d do if I tried to throw with my left hand.

You’d think the guy would have tried to practice a little bit… unless he thinks his stink don’t stank or it doesn’t matter – in some respects it doesn’t. Brings to mind the recent basketball event he held wherein he missed four shots in a row before finally sinking it… I thought the guy played basketball nearly as much as he played golf and liked to talk smack about how good he was at it?

Perhaps it is as upinak says. People are beginning to see through him as the charlatan that he is.

As to his jeans, meh. A bit odd, but whatever. If anything though it only furthers the idea that he’s absolutely clueless, showing that he’s unaware of what “regular” folk wear. Which is funny since he was supposed to be a community organizer… you know, out there with the “regular” folk.

You need to see the video of all the Mass residents who turned out to see Scott Brown when he was running against Marcia. It was heartening that he had a crowd outside in the snow and rain waiting to see him than Obowma and Marcia could drag in off the street.

This was not a aberration it was a portent of things to come.

It does seem strange that NO video’s have come out on this? I sure hope someone will post one if it did indeed happen.

Just as mo got booed at a nascar race, seems fans aren’t all that thrilled with either of them?

letget on April 21, 2012 at 12:57 PM

Eh. I would chalk that more up to the unnecessary and egregious attention seeking inherent in such a message. Seriously. WTF does anyone care about Barrack Obama’s take on Fenway Park turning 100 ? He’s not a Sox fan. I don’t even think he’s really a baseball fan at all. He’s not from Boston, or Massachusetts, or New England, or even the US in the first place. There is no reason for the man to have any message except to get his moronic mug out there in yet another setting in pursuit of re-election.

I think the boos are as much a reaction to the cynical nature of politics evident in the very existence of his message.

MA isn’t going to go Red, but Obama isn’t going to win this state by the margins he should if you think about how liberal we are. Remember, I think it was before the 2010 election, Obama couldn’t fill a college auditorium in Boston for a speech he was giving. I don’t know anyone here willing to defend this guy other than reflexively, “for the team” if you know what I mean.

How would you like to have coached him in Little League?

a capella on April 21, 2012 at 12:54 PM

Aside from the fact that I wouldn’t have coached anything period, I probably would have made him a bench warmer.

I was lousy in sports as a kid and am still not that great at any sport but a lot of that is due to lack of interest. At least I know that about myself. Still, if I were President and were invited to throw a first pitch at a game, I’d either politely decline or practice so that the ball can at least make it to the plate.

This guy thinks his stink don’t stank.

Boo!

Would be even funnier if he’d tried to do a Bear Grylls and light the ball on fire and then drop it because he burnt his hand.

Logus on April 21, 2012 at 1:05 PM

Obama’s message was brief, perhaps 10 seconds long, and began to play, I believe, after the first inning or half inning. It took me (and likely most others) by surprise, so there was little opportunity to catch the moment on video.

Still, with the number of cameras there, some video will show up. The media certainly have the raw footage of the entire event.

I can’t stand Obama, but this isn’t much of a story. Politicians always get booed at sporting events. People are there to get away from all the daily barrage of nonsense. Paying for a t.icket to be preached at is not anybody,s idea of a good time.

…difference is…he goes to all of them…aircraft carrier games, tournaments, etc.
Different… going to a game to see it…than going to it… to be seen!

He has no connection to Boston, and very little connection to great American pastimes. The audience knew they were being played for fools, and that’s why they booed.

I would say Obama has jumped the shark. He ought to start acting like a president and not a cheap celebrity.

If you’re trying to convince me that the Golfer-in-Chief spends way to much time recreating and preening his ego, no need. We’re already on the same page. It’d make a great topic for a Romney campaign commercial.

Obama should not appear on Bark in the Park day, I guess.

Thank goodness we have twitter and blogs to get stories like this out.

In case you missed it, the Campaigner-in-Chief’s happy 100th birthday message to Fenway Park was booed loudly when it was played on the Jumbotron yesterday.

As luck would have it, I was at the game. For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of Red Sox fans.
