Skip to comments.Obama rallies at Mentor High School (in Ohio in the gym)
Posted on 11/03/2012 2:52:18 PM PDT by smoothsailing
President Barack Obama appeared in Lake County for the first time Saturday as president and candidate for last-minute campaign stop at Mentor High School.
Obama spoke for about 28 minutes before an estimated crowd of 4,010 in the schools gymnasium and a nearby overflow room.
Obama asked for help getting people to vote early and on Tuesday and for supporters to knock on doors and make phone calls asking for his support.
I hope youre ready Ohio, he said. I hope you still have fight left in you. ...........

PPLEWIS1 2 hours ago It is so wrong that a political pep rally was placed before the good of the students this morning! It never should have been approved to have the rally the same time the students were scheduled to take the SAT. Then, at the last minute the SAT test was cancelled. I feel badly for the students, particularly seniors trying to get their scores to get their college apps in, and hope someone is held accountable!

4,010 in a gym in Mentor the day after Romney had 30,000 in West Chester.
If he needs to move his campaign rallies to high school gyms, he’s dead, Jim.
This is not the handiwork of a candidate who’ll carry OH much less than win a national election.
For O, its over!
Read the comments at the article site, seems there is also another little twist to this rally.
Today was the scheduled SAT test date at the school and the SAT was cancelled at the last minute so Obama could hold his rally. BHO places himself above everyone else, even kids trying to get into college.
This guy is the President Of The United States!
I guess he’s longer The Messiah we have all been waiting for!
All the goosed polls in the world can’t revive him now. He’ll need more than a miracle to remain President.
That’s interesting. I wonder now you can estimate a crowd to be at 4010?
What kind of town is Mentor? I looked it up and it’s 97% white. Guilty leftists?
Did he glom onto a bake sale or something?
Obama had these huge outdoor rallies four years ago with young people screaming and women fainting in the aisles.
The magic is gone. There is no life to this campaign. I don’t feel the love! Do you?
An “estimated” 4,010? Means more like 1,250
It must be a typo of some sort. Maybe the reporter meant to report "410" and somehow an extra zero got stuck in there.
He should have handed out free beer and tamales, as they did in TX during LBJ’s reign of terror. He always drew a crowd of Mexicans and Americans and both voted Democrat.
And later tonight Joe Biden is at Central High School in Pueblo co.
It’s not a bad sign- they just like High School gyms LOL!
In 28 minutes, three or four people could've counted 'em one by one ..
He doesn't care because he got in through affirmative action and had expense paid by the Saudi muslim radicals. (He's repaid the favor numerous times, most recently by supplying arms to radicals in Libya and Syria.)
Listen to this -
I hope youre ready Ohio, he said. I hope you still have fight left in you”
Does this sound like the language of a victorious candidate? He spoke for 28 minutes and he was reduced to begging his supporters to turn out to vote.
I kinda feel sorry for him. But not sorry to enough to see the Supreme Narcissist out of our lives forever!
“for a crowd of 401, Obama blah blah” got turned into “a crowd of 4010”
Pueblo is 2 hours from where I live. Its a Blue Democratic city. Considering the reception Slow Joe had in Arvada today, he’ll be hard pressed to top that performance!
Simple. They counted 401 people (kids who didn't know that their SAT test scheduled at that location got cancelled) and applied the standard MSM "multiplier" of 10.
“President Barack Obama will speak at a grassroots event with former President Bill Clinton and singer Dave Matthews will perform in Bristow, Va., Saturday.
The event at Jiffy Lube Live at 7 p.m. is free and open to the public, but tickets are required...
LOL! I read this as “at Jiffy Lube, live..”
Could have swore news reports last night were that after targeting small locales and venues for some time they would be in the big venues this weekend. What happened?
Wanna take bets about the Democratic Party hierarchy coming out there to lend er - moral support?
The numbers aren’t there. Even his base isn’t moved.
And when your base isn’t moved, its over.
Mentor, Ohio is not exactly friendly territory for The One. Lake County is quite Red overall. Someone screwed up.
They made the same mistake earlier this week on Colorado Springs until Sandy gave O an out.
This is poor planning and poor use of time by his campaign. And when you’re short on time, it can’t be made up.
But a campaign is ultimately about the candidate and not his staff.
High school gyms today, Fill-A-Sack convience store parking lots tomorrow, Go OBobo, Go............ LMAO!!
1, 2, skip a few, 99, 1000.
Well, these events are for the GOTV workers.
They’re not really for the voters.
Though I wonder why they aren’t doing events for voters like Romney is.
Because they know they’ve lost. Biden appeared in a high school gym in Wisconsin today in front of “more than 1,100 people who packed the gym.”
He spoke at a high school gym in Lima, Ohio yesterday.
Yeah, he's the loser I was hoping wouldn't show up.
Just saw Obama live on Fox at a rally in Iowa. He’s supposed to be in Virginia right now. Apparently the Virginia rally at Jiffy Lube Live was a bust.
Jiffy Lube Live seats 25,000. This thing in Iowa looked to have a few hundred. It was hard to tell for sure, they were just doing closeup shots.
Another sign of fail im Obama World.
This venue is right off I66 and it will be easy for Oboomu to bus in supporters from MD and NOVA. I suspect this will be a surprise photo op and how he drawing crowds
LOL beat me to it
Cajun? Qu’est-ce que Obama connaître Cajun?
C’est comme étranger à lui que les bayous de la Louisiane.
Laissez le bon temps rouler!
This Jiffy Lube Live thing was supposewd to start at 7PM. Obama is still in Iowa. I guess maybe he’s planning on making a late entrance so his lackeys have time to round up a crowd. HA!
This says he’s scheduled in Bristow at 11 pm.
Clinton and Dave Mathews Band there.
Be very noteworthy if he skips out...
Cela est très vrai (vrai is *Ve de tae* in Cajun French where I live).
Always have the good times rolling, sure hope so on next Tuesday.
Know for sure Romney is a lock in Louisiana.
And as the late Justin Wilson would say, I gar-run-teee.
They probably estimated it as 4000 and then 10 more people came in. Dem math.
Was the basketball game in progress when he showed up???
Was he the half-time entertainment???
I did not hear about Arvada. We have our office there. What went on, and where was he. Just curious.
Thanks for the heads up! I wonder how many people are there now and how many will hang around until 11PM! LOL!
Be even funnier if he shows up an hour late and no ones there!
If this amazing popularity continues they’ll be renting bus kiosks to hold the faithful.
LOL, and Sandra Fluke will draw larger crowds!
