I will be at work during this rally. My office looks right out over Malls B and C (29 floors up).

I will report, if you'd like.

Why is 0bama wasting his time in Ohio. He lost Ohio weeks (if not months) ago.

What is so funny is that Obama goes into a very Dem area of Ohio. What a waste!

If you were one of my old pals from the 'hood I'd ask you to hawk an oyster on Bruce during his acoustic set & shout 'greetings fm Asbury Park' for me.

Sorry for the visual but that would concisely sum up how I feel about old Bruce these days.

You make the perfect spy for all of us! I saw he had Springsteen to get out the support but he has that area. Does he think he might not be as welcome in say Cincy? :)

Obama brings liberal entertainers to his rallies to attract people.

I'll take the following folks over them any day.

The reason they are coming into downtown Cleveland is they have to get as much votes as possible to counter the outlying areas (and vice versa).

They need a free concert to get Dem voters to attend an Obama rally? I thought they're on their way on to a landslide? I hope I haven't imparted anything detrimental to them? Oh dear. Since they need Bruce Springsteen, that's very telling.

No doubt he’ll make some goofy reference to Obama being “Born to Run.” Lame. Must remember to put my Springsteen albums at the curb this weekend.

On November 1, 2004, I was here at the exact same spot. Kerry had Springsteen with him at 9:00 at night. There were only about 100 people there. I knew, at that time (and so did Kerry), that Kerry lost Ohio.

“The reason they are coming into downtown Cleveland is they have to get as much votes as possible to counter the outlying areas (and vice versa).”

Lemme guess....their lawyers have asked for ‘emergency’ polls to be opened up to accommodate the crowds so that everyone can run over and vote for 0bama. He’s supposed to be speaking at a rally in Columbus that day as well.

Is anyone wondering if people are voting multiple times at these rallies? Are they verifying that if people are voting at a rally in Cuyahoga County (since early voting requires that you don’t have to be at your assigned precinct) they’re not running down to Columbus and doing the same 4 hours later?

Its funny. If they held the concert in Chillicothe, I would know it would look bad for McCain. That its in Cleveland again - means McCain is set to win OH. Every four years, its the same Dem script. It never gets old! LMAO!

I will report this time tomorrow. But, keep in mind that we have a Browns game that will finish about 4:00 p.m., so the number of people may not mean as much.

I bet its the same 100 who showed up for Kerry. Are they the same Springsteen fans?

Draw a huge crowd, have the MSM take pictures so everyone can see that everyone wants Obama, all you have to do is look at the crowd in pictures, which will surely convince you to vote with the crowd. Believe nothing of what you hear or read, and only half of what you see when it comes from the MSM.

Scheduling a rally to begin right before the end of the Ravens/Browns game. There will be a lot of pissed Browns fans coming the Obamanites way after the Ravens dispose of the Brownies. Not sure these fans will be in the mood to hear Barry’s “your all selfish comments”.

It’s still a fight for Ohio, goldstategop. It’s going to be close, I think, as it has been the past two Presidential elections.

“Will he sing Born in the USA?”
They probably will play it but I have always hated that song because if you actually LISTEN to the words, it’s very anti-american!
Springsteen can rot in hell!

A good morning to everyone! One of your favorite Cleveland Freepers here reporting from ground zero of enemy territory. :-)

Well, “Bleachers To Go” (not joking) has erected a stand of bleachers with one large American flag behind it. In front of that is the stage, with one podium, surrounded by blue-colored gating. Three tents have been erected, and there is also a long row of tables (for propoganda, no doubt).

There are approximately 8-10 kiddies standing in line on the corner waiting to get in for the free concert.

Updates, when available, will be posted.

View of the Mall, looking north, towards Lake Erie. Mall A is partially visible at the bottom of the picture, Mall B is in the middle, and Mall C is near the top. You can see the Browns Stadium on the lakefront. This event just happens to start at the very same time the Browns game should be over.

I think he wants to seen the 70K Browns fans mix with his 100k fans.

It does seem odd to rally in Cleveland where he already has 110% of the eligible voters.

I hate that tune. I never heard a real guy moan and groan as he does in that totally over-wrought production.

I just came inside from a break. The mall is going to be filled, but realize that it is not all that large. The people that passed me walking toward the mall were your usual BHO supporters, almost entirely young and ethic.
