Barack Obama launched his campaign in unspectacular
fashion today at Ohio State University, the largest college in the
crucial swing state. A photo posted to twitter
by Mitt Romney's campaign spokesman Ryan Williams
reveals sparse attendance. The above image, according to Williams, was
taken during the President's first official campaign speech.

During the speech, Obama ripped into the presumptive GOP nominee and discussed nation building at home, but the most newsworthy item of the day was not the talking points Obama delivered: it was the crowd... or lack thereof. According to ABC News, the Obama campaign had expected an "overflow" of people. Instead, the arena looked half-empty. The Columbus

    I hope our young citizens will vote smarter than Obama. College graduates are unemployed in record numbers due to Obama's policies. Blacks are unemployed in record numbers too. These groups need to wake up and vote for a strong economy that allows them to prosper. if you voted for obama in 2008 to prove you are not racist

    They are about to get their HOPE and CHANGE and at the same time get rid of the plight that made so many empty promises in 2008.

    0bama did fall approximately 4800 people short of filling the arena,but it was more crowded than this picture in the videos, I would say this picture was taken early before the herds of sheeple showed up.

    The videos from the start of the speech show a lot more people than this pic shows though. As a buckeye I've seen that arena filled quite a few times. The reports said he had ~14000 people show up, that arena holds ~18800. Obviously there are not 14000 in the pic, but the video would seem to show closer to that number. In the videos both tiers of the seating were pretty full. But keep in mind that place is in the middle of a very large (liberal) university campus. It's kinda funny that even there on that campus, with the best of the numbers reported, he still couldn't fill it as well as sporting events or concerts.

    Sorry but the picture is BS. 16000 people had all the lower seats filled in a 20,000 seat arena.

    They've ll changed their political affiliations to moderate on this site. The obama rally to kick off his re-election didn't turn out so well in terms of attendance and his speech was pretty boring for even the mainstream medias to even bother with much reporting.

    I have three kids all in their twenties. None of them are voting for Obama. None. And according to them, none of their friends are either. Why-stated issues are that Obama has failed on his campaign promises-the dismal jobs situation for new grads and the continued misappropriation of money to causes that do nothing to change things. Two of my kids work in the performing arts. All of them are struggling. Many of their friends are putting off marriage, kids and more because they simply cannot afford it. That's why we have idiots like the OWS organizer living off of student loans until he's 29 years old. This has got to change. Our greatgrandparents were adults when they turned 18 and they were expected to go out in the world and survive. Our kids are now coddled through college and then go into shock when they are expected to wake up in the morning, go to work, pay bills. Of course it's hard to do that when there are no jobs. And there are no jobs because Obama has used stimulus money to bailout union heavy industries and campaign contributors over the mainstream of the economy. Fail, Fail, Uber Fail.
