As President Obama tried to maximize the precious few stops he has left in crucial Ohio, his rally here Sunday night was full of musical interludes, but not without a few interruptions. Taking the stage at the University of Cincinnati shortly after R+B superstar Stevie Wonder warmed up the crowd, the president was sidetracked by a lone protestor up in the rafters, who held a sign and yelled, his words loud but hard to make out.
I guess yall are still fired up, Obama said as the crowd began a counter-chant of four more years! attempting to drown the heckler out.
At first the president tried to soldier through and deliver his remarks over the protestor, but he finally gave in as the crowd cheered on state troopers who pried the man away from the balcony bars he had grabbed onto.
But it wasnt over yet there was still one more protestor who had to be removed from the arena.
Its okay folks. Everybody, its okay. Were good, Obama said before once again giving up until the cheering and shouting subsided.

While people were leaving since Stevie Wonder was done.
No mention of crowd numbers.
From the Dayton newspaper: “Four years ago, he drew a crowd of 27,000 to Nippert Stadium at the University of Cincinnati on a chilly November night. Last night, a crowd that fire officials estimated at 15,500 including 2,000 in an overflow room showed up at Fifth Third Arena for a rally that also included a performance by Stevie Wonder, who led chants of Fired up ready to go, before the rally and who ended it with Sign, Sealed, Delivered, a favorite song of Obamas on the campaign trail.”
15,000 people to see Stevie Wonder is pathetic. Would anyone show up for obama if he wasn’t dragging out all these rock stars? I doubt it.
The excerpt doesn’t say what the sign said...
That crowd figure is a bold face lie .
I saw the wide range photo
The place was empty and the crowd was forced into one corner of the stage floor for the close crop photo . Fox had the real
Which always means ‘I can be real bad in a NY sec and that — — is dead’
makes sense, otherwise why would they have trouble drowning out 1 protestor
Don't see where you get that here.
OK, but it looks like “no drama Obama” actually took it pretty well...
15,000 people to see Stevie Wonder is pathetic....Have you ever seen Stevie Wonder’s Wife?
200 people attended.
If the enthusiasm level for 0bama has dropped so precipitously, and the polls still say the race is a toss-up, i have to deduce that the democrats would have won this in a walking away landslide if they had an energetic and charismatic candidate who actually had any positive accomplishments.
That doesn’t speak well for the numbers of conservatives and libertarians.
15,000 people to see Stevie Wonder is pathetic....Have you ever seen Stevie Wonders Wife?
No: But then neither has he.
Not even the president could resist he was seen shuffling back and forth, modestly clapping to the beat.
Shuffling? Really? Only because it's from leftist NBC will this use of the race-charged word be overlooked.
It will be interesting to watch Zero’s meltdown when he loses. Watching the MSM meltdown tomorrow night should also be entertaining.
I’m looking forward to the concession speech. Think we’ll get it late Tuesday / early Wednesday? Or will we be subjected to court challenges and other nonsense from Zero?
funny you should mention some songs. i’m considering a playlist for Tuesday: Boz Scaggs, “It’s Over,” “Ticket to Ride,” etc.......
