Posted on 05/05/2012 2:08:38 PM PDT by Twotone
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 that the event was poorly attended. The above image, according to Williams, was taken during the President's first official campaign speech.

Empty suit, empty stadium, empty head. All you need to know about Obama.
And half of them were the Moonbat media.
He needs a much much smaller arena.
And at Ohio Hate University of all places. Very bad sign if you start with a cheating University full of sexual predators!
And here’s another article about the same event:
“If people ask you what this campaign is about, you tell them ‘it’s still about hope.’ You tell them ‘it’s still about change,’” he told a cheering mass of supporters at Ohio State University in Columbus, six months and one day before the election. “I still believe in you. And I’m asking you to keep believing in me.”
Enough with the hope & change already!!
did dunham give a shoutout to karl marx.
Overexposed ain’t the word for it. Michele was giving out clues on Jeopardy last night for crying out loud! I usually watch the show, even though Trebeck is a lib, but I clicked it last night.
If Axelhole was half bright, he would “size” the arena to not quite fit the smallest anticipated crowd. “People were turned away, leaving enthusiastic crowds cheering in the street outside.” That’s a whole lot better headline than, “The President spoke in front of a nearly empty stadium.” Of course, when you own the press, I guess it doesn’t matter.
dunham shoulda launched in an acorn office.
You know its possible even the dems are tired of nobama and are happy to put him on the spot or in a bad light. You just gotta know him and moochele are pure assholes to deal with.
Once these two hacks leave office it will be interesting to see how they are treated.
With the Food Stamp President it all about image. Just think about it ... he has Slow Joe around just to make him look better.
this idiot is still using the “hopeychangey” garbage? Unreal.
check out the few hundred in richmond...
Full moon, empty head.
Empty head, empty suit.
Empty suit, empty stadium.
“Forward! with Hope and Change. WTF? Win The Future!
Let a thousand flowers bloom!” Chairman Obama
As long as a mirror, monitor, recorder and teleprompter were available for Obama, I’m sure he mesmerized himself with the sound of his own voice and considered the embarrassing flop to be a resounding success.
Remember this is the guy who `wrote’ two books about himself in his 40s and considered a collection of DVDs of his speeches to be a suitable gift to our most steadfast ally.
I can’t help but think that the GOPee is encouraged by the disgust felt and expressed by ordinary Americans about the current WH occupants.
Romulans ... your guy is as bad, just as clueless and hopelessly “progressive.”
So, take heart: this may be a contest after all ..... Demo lefties vs. GOP lefties.
`Since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell,
It’s at the end of Lonely Street,
it’s Conservative Hotel.’
Note the `DND’ sign on the door knob—all gun-grabbers, homosexualists and perverts of both parties. Baby-killers. Empty suits of either party, enter at your own risk.
Two more days and counting until moderate statesman Dick `DREAM Act’ Luger is a lame duck!
Øbama is well hated
Likable isn’t what comes to my mind when contemplating the Obamas either.
He will get fewer braindamaged republican votes than in 2008, and republicans are a greater percentage now than then, so that will work against him cf to 2008.
The "youts" will be less in the tank, just because you can't ever do the same thing twice, and the idiot children who voted for him in 2008 have now come face to face with grim reality, which is that obama just can't cut the mustard for them.
The new generation of 'youts' has less reason than their predecessors to vote for obama--no backlog of Bush hatred, no romance about "the first black Preezy;" no good job prospects, no exciting bullshit about "hope'n'change." No war to be against. IE, no reason to bother, so turnout will suffer. Works against obama cf to 2008.
Romney is not McCain. If the senile McCain had run a good campaign--not a perfect campaign, just a good solid competent campaign, he would have won and Obama would be the asterisk he deserves to be.
Romney is no Reagan, not very conservative, not very charismatic; I compare Romney to Nixon with a better shave and somewhat better personality. But Nixon won--twice--despite those challenges, by being a serious candidate who recognized essential issues and stayed focussed on them. Romney can do the same if he's smart. I assess him as being very smart, a lot smarter than McCain, and with a far better organization.
He has a Superpac who can deliver the goods on any candidate, and we have to believe will do the number on the Usurper, a large slow-moving target, in reality.
A few percentage points on polls right now mean little or nothing. If Romney runs a good solid campaign and keeps the heat on the Obama record, he will win in November. We better hope he does, like him or don't.

“Ooh...that smell..can’t you smell that smell...?”
Sorry for the sidebar, but this is the third time I’ve seen the word “Tumblr” today as if we are all supposed to know what the heck if is. I presume it’s a new Facebook or Twitter or some such, probably owned by Google or some other commielib media giant.
Can I assume we will soon see Mumblr, Fumblr and Stumblr to go with it?
Maybe they will have women fainting like four years ago or perhaps they shouldn’t do that because it might be revealed they were fainting because they’re starving for not having had a job in three years.
And THAT was an eye-opener. Moochelle, with a clue. . .(evil grin)
I like your “dispassionate” assessment. One gets tired of all the foot-stomping spoiled children that burden this forum.
...which is the only reason they didn’t invite Obambi, since EVERYONE now knows he hasn’t a clue.
As far as the empty arena goes..it will never make the mainstream news.
And the "cheating" you're probably referring to at OSU was athletes selling their own possessions, mainly little key rings with U of M colored pants the players receive if they beat the Wolverines in football, for free tattoos. Their coach got fired for not reporting that major scandal to the NCAA.
So in light of all that, would you please be so kind as to bend over and perform a physically impossible act on yourself? Thank you.
Team Obama's in luck - they're DEMOCRATS - - the MSM will pretend they didn't notice the place was half empty.
Excuse ME. And that is more important than the empty stadium of Obama worshipers. Get your priorities straight my man.
Are you going to post the picture, or shall we just use our imaginations?
Never mind. FreeDumb posted it for you.
His slogan is ‘ready to go’? How funny, yes, we certainly are ready for him to go!
As in say bye and leave the white house in 2013.
The other half are the ones who don’t realize the economy isn’t any better now than in 2010, when he extended the Bush tax cuts for the rich because the economy wasn’t getting any better.
Oh my..... I LOVE IT!!!!
I am praying everything you said is true.
I was embarassed for our country; for our First “Lady” to be giving out clues on a game show during a re-election campaign, was disgusting-and desperate.
And it’s teen week on Jeopardy too...give us a break!
One of the clues she gave was about a vegetable that had vitamin this and vitamin that etc. “and it is the President’s favorite!”
“What is a sweet potato Alex?” one of the teens asked. And Alex said “that’s correct! We are learning a lot about our President tonite!”
-took us 4 years to find out something he likes to eat besides beef and ice cream (I would have guessed grasshoppers-they’re green!) Wonder what else we don’t know about him?
The Obamas were also popping up on Animal Planet during March and April, that blew my mind....but,no rest for the wicked. I feel like I’m living in Russia or China with our Dear Leader’s face plasted everywhere...
Either Bambi gets for more years or his lite version (Romney) will get the Oval Office, but I strongly believe that the Senate is lost to the Dims. I'm not worried about the House. Either way, liberty busting legislation will not survive for either to sign.
Unfortunately, Romney will not repeal the egregious Executive Orders, Czars, bureaucracies, regulations, et al, put in place by the Marxist and Reid/Pelosi ilk. It will take major stones for Congress to find their rightful place and dare either to veto.
Our future rests on the USSC and their decision regarding Obamacare. If it goes down, then any future president will be minimized and Congress may find their cojones. If it stands, this great experiment in liberty and self-determination is over. A confirmation of Obamacare will open the path to the Fedgov declaring all must purchase other products for the good of the "people". It will be a "Fast and Furious" push to control everything everywhere (pun intended).
I'm on the back stretch of my life. While I adore my wife and love my little doggy, I will NOT succumb to tyranny. My wife has told me that she would respect me less if we just sat and hid and lived with it. Whatta gal!
“Michele was giving out clues on Jeopardy last night for crying out loud!”
Obama can’t run on his record, AT ALL, so they are trying to make him in to a “Cool” media Icon again.
It may work, it may not. After all, the sheep WERE dumb enough to elect him in the first place!
I was in this arena just two weeks ago. BARRY MANILOW had a crows that was AT LEAST 4 times this size!
I would not be surprised.
Empty promises, too.
Obama 2008: Hope and Change
Obama 2012: Running on empty, like his arena.
It matters. This was their “first” official campaign event, and it was a FAILURE.
I understand Obamas campaign people had to ask people to come out of the bleachers to stand on the floor, so it would ‘look like’ more were there.
His first Cam[aign stop and he forgets Michelle while stepping off the plane...and then blew his first campaign appearance with low crowd numbers.....now that is Very Bad when usually the first stop is dynamic....
The thrill is gone it would certainly appear!
