Obama Launches Campaign to Empty Seats; Unveils Ad That Should be Called “Just Go”

“Barack Obama launched his campaign in unspectacular fashion today at Ohio State University, the largest college in the crucial swing state” of Ohio. “A photo posted to twitter by Mitt Romney’s campaign spokesman Ryan Williams,” Ryan, not Brian. Ryan Williams. And the upper deck is empty. Twenty thousand people is the capacity, and I think there were just over 10,000 people there. “According to the Toledo Blade, the venue for Obama’s rally seats 20,000 but ‘there were a lot of empty seats.’ Comparatively, Obama drew a crowd of 35,000 at Ohio State when he campaigned for former Governor Ted Strickland in 2010.”

Two years ago, he drew 35,000. Now he barely draws 10,000 or 11,000! We’ve got Axelrod on ABC yesterday basically running a campaign of hope and change. They’re still running against Bush! And Obama has been reduced to saying, “Well, you may not be better off now than you were four years ago, but you will be in 10 or 15 if you stick with me. But if you go to Romney, if you go back to Bush, you’re not gonna be better off in 10 or 15 years but you will be better off in 10 or 15 years with me.”

They’re stuck.
