This is what happened to the ScoaMF today when he started his campaign at Ohio State University. Apparently the stadium was only half filled.
Not an auspicious start for “The Greatest Dog Eating President in History!” There’s more on this from Breitbart.com:
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.
See what happens when your campaign staff forgets the Greek columns? Of course it may be they didn’t forget them. It’s possible the Greek Government demanded them back so they could sell them and pay of their debt.
According to the Toledo Blade, the venue for Obama’s rally seats 20,000 but “there were a lot of empty seats.” The official Barack Obama Tumblr boasts a figure from ThinkProgress that 14,000 attended the event–70% of the stadium’s seating capacity.
I’m sure those figures were done by the same people who have been doing the monthly unemployment numbers and the inflation rates too…with as much accuracy.
To hold a campaign event in a room that you can’t fill is a mistake; to promise the media a more-than-capacity crowd then fall this far short of that promise is an act of utter incompetence. In 2008, Obama ran a near-flawless campaign, buoyed by enthusiasm and effective organizing. But it’s not 2008 any more, and on day one of the 2012 campaign, Team Obama has already made an embarrassing blunder.
In 2008 Obama knew he could count on his drooling hordes in the media to cover up his errors. This time, even with supertanker loads of whitewash, the news will get out. As much as I detest Mittens Obomney, he is out for blood. Every time the dog eating ScoaMF screws up, Mittens Minions will be blasting it all over the Internet.
I have just one question.
Does the Obama Campaign have enough shovels or should we supply a few more? Since they have failed to learn the first rule of holes, I see no reason not to help them with their digging.
