Election Day Empty Chair Countdown – Day 16

Election Day Empty Chair Countdown – Day 16

Each day until Election Day we will feature a previously unpublished photo sent in by a Legal Insurrection reader on National Empty Chair Day, September 3, 2012.

The countdown continues with 16 days to go.

Today’s Empty Chair photos were all taken by Glenn in Ohio (note: not “Oiho” as the Empty Chair Prez spells it).  They are all so good that I couldn’t pick just one.

First up, the Empty Chair in the empty field begs for a caption:

“Field of Obama’s Dreams of His Father”? Maybe “You didn’t build that, so no, they won’t come”?

Next up is the Empty Chair in the outhouse.

I’m not sure how I’d caption this, but the message seems rather clear.

Next up, is the Empty Chair “gone fishing . . . ”

. . . for votes, perhaps?  Or maybe for discounted donations?

And finally, my favorite of Glenn’s Empty Chair photos:

Especially fitting now that the Empty Chair’s poll numbers are slip sliding away.  But maybe this needs a fiscal cliff caption?

(Note: DO NOT SEND additional photos, we are using only photos originally submitted on National Empty Chair Day.)


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.



That first one reminds me of the Monty Python “How Not to be Seen” sketch.

“In this picture, there are the 43 best American Presidents. None of them can be seen.”

#1 And you wonder why you can’t see the forest for the trees!
#2 Yeah, well, you’re economic plan doesn’t work either!
#3 Nah, the fish are takin’ the bait either!
#4 But Bush said it would work to do it this way!

Only 16 more days. I can feel the cold sweat coming on.

That outhouse one is priceless – without the chair, that is a “throne” for “Emperor wannabe!” The ultimate empty “chair” for this Won.

Very creative, and good captions, too. 😉

Great ad. Is there an echo here?

Early voting tomorrow, early voting tomorrow, early voting tomorrow!

This Texan can’t wait to vote all (R)!

    We have had the money bombs, now it is time for the voter bomb!

    22 Oct 2012, 8:10 am, at my local library here in TX, I VOTED EARLY! All (R)s too. 😎

Re the chair over the outhouse seat: I wonder if Obama would be smart enough to realize there is no hole in the chair.

Candy Crowley might need to be on hand to help him. But then I wonder if she would realize there was no hole in the chair.

(Come to think of it, when you look at the size of her gut — how can she tell the state of anything below her waist?)

I like the empty chair gone fishing; That is truly a work of art. Empty chair in an outhouse made me laugh.

Another very fine chair. The dimensions & colours are perfect. Where do you get these ?

I have been non interneted for a few days (time out ) & since I have returned I am struggling to find any coverage of the election in places previously over flowing with obamaluv.

On the Daily Tele blog just one in the last 22 threads!

Mitt has really freaked them out.


Chair in field:

Our Fearless Leader a man without peer, outstanding in his field.

    “outstanding in his field”

    And that’s where I wish he were – out, standing in a field. Any field.

    (Are there any fields left in Hawaii?)
