Obama attracts only 2,800 to 4,000 people in Ohio Comments

A rally for President Obama in the democratic stronghold of Cleveland turned out to be a major disappointment. In 2008, Obama in the same city drew crowds of 80,000 people. This past weekend, only 2,800 attended an Obama rally near Columbus, and only 4,000 attended the Cleveland rally. In contrast, 30,000 people showed up in the cold and rain in Cincinnati to see GOP contender Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Continue Reading

    Not accurate. Misleading. In other areas of Ohio, Obama had very large crowds consistently. In New Hampshire, Obama held the largest rally there in the state's history. It is a little sad that this rather desperate story does not include a more honest picture.

    A few points to be considered:
    1. Cuyahoga County was slammed by Hurricane Sandy. Our electricity and heat was restored yesterday (Saturday). Of course, this does not account entirely for the small crowd sizes, but it did have some effect.
    2. The Obama rally numbers were awfully small, but the volunteering effort was not. In my neighborhood (Cleveland Heights), volunteers were out in force.
    3. Most Obama supporters know that Obama has Ohio wrapped up already.
    4. Romney-Ryan supporters tend to be emotional; whereas Obama supporters are more rational. Thus, RR rallies have tended to be bigger and more enthusiastic.
    5. Remember that being pro-life does not only mean being pro-fetus. It means being pro-environment so that our children and their children grow up in a world that's as rich, diverse, and resilient as the one we inherited from our parents.

    Does not matter. Obama has this election in the bag. Nice try, Romney, but you lose.

    Way to go, Mitt Romney!!

    I'm so happy we don't have to choose between the lesser of two evils like we had to in 2008. We have likely the best presidential candidate of our lifetimes running this year. Mitt Romney is uniquely qualified to handle the challenges our country faces right now.

    Mitt Romney is a good man who led a "stellar" career turning around failing and corrupt organizations in both the private and public sectors. There's no roundabout way to say it. He has a reputation founded on his track record of follow through. He has shown that he can reach across the aisle to accomplish the things that everyone can unite on.

    He gives more of himself to volunteer service, and more of his income to church and charity than any Democrat in federal government. He saved the Olympics, and donated his huge paycheck to charity. He worked as governor of MA for free. He has given roughly 10 percent of his life to service. How could we not want someone like this as our president.

    Vote now, and vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan - they really are America's comeback team. Help give him the election sweep that he's earned! WOOHOO!! ROMNEY/RYAN 2012!!!
