PARMA, Ohio With less than an hour before President Obama's scheduled speech, 75 seats remained empty in the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College's Western Campus.
So organizers went around campus and recruited more students to fill the seats.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
just 75? I smell BS, bet it was 275.
How much per student did they pay then, ya think? $20?
Parma was union before...but a lot of immigrants from europe in the 50’s...and Catholic.
Hellll..who knows anymore?
That’s one thing about the military, people will show up for the President.
Democrat Stronghole flops!
People around here are fed-up like I’ve never seen.
From the corruption scandal at county level all the way to the 0bama regime.
This says something about how far Obama has brought down respect for the office of the president.
If my child was attending a college where the president was speaking, I would encourage them to attend the speech—no matter who the president was. Presidents are historical figures, the presidency is unique in our society, and you don’t often get the chance to hear a sitting president speak.
The fact that they couldn’t fill the hall tells me either the students have become apathetic about Obama, or they were trying, without much success, to fill the hall with a certain type of student (ones that would applaud loudly at all the politically correct moments). Neither is really a good sign for Obama.
I would go attend just so I could get up out of my seat and leave during the key part of his speech. I might even yell out “YOU LIE” while I walk out.
They don’t have a choice.
Students should attend the event. Obama owns them. He holds their student loans. He holds the mortgage on their futures. He controls the number of private sector jobs available. His Government union thugs handle their chances at Government jobs. He owns them. /sarc with a little truth
You couldn’t pay me enough to go, although the thought of screaming “You lie” after every other sentence does appeal to me. Once wouldn’t be enough.
Of course, I went to college after my three years active Army, and was a member of the guard, so would, no doubt, be screened out during the security checks.
Too, there would be the danger that a photo would be taken which would indicate that I had something to do with the POS.
Even back then, I could afford to buy my own beer.
No way I’d show up.
Hey, can we send these some Barack BS Bingo cards?
Tell them they can play while they listen!
Cosmo Kramer wasn't available?
“Parma! Turn blue knif!”
Soon we will have virtual students and people. The audience will be animation.
How about some dogs too?
Nope. My dog is a REPUB.
Of course if she were a democRAT and also deceased then she could vote five times each election.
