Yesterday, Obama staged a rally at Cleveland State University. Unlike the 2008 era of hopenchange, Obama spoke to an auditorium that had thousands of empty seats. The New York Post notes that event organizers are making excuses for the poor attendance:
Shortly before his election two years ago, Obama drew a crowd of 80,000 in Cleveland.
Organizers of yesterdays event tried to explain away the row after row of unoccupied seats by saying the president was competing with football, church and Halloween parties.
The RNC retorts So were clear, the event started at 3pm. Most church services were over, trick-or-treating hadnt yet started and the Cleveland Browns had a bye week. Theres a simple truth, one the Democrats will do anything not to admit: voters just dont like President Obama and his job-killing agenda.

U2 couldn’t warm up the crowd.
IT WASN’T MY FAULT.
For the next few years after these elections, one of the Tea Party’s efforts should be to muster enough folks to ^significantly^ add to these Hype&Change crowds and just sit on their hands for the entire session.
A dour look would be “gravy” for the cameras. Obamugabe and the MSM would begin to understand the zen concept of “one hand clapping”.
Browns were on bye week.
That one won’t work, sorry Baraq.
WRONG! There were not 80,000 people at Obama's rally on the Mall in Cleveland on the Sunday before election day 2008. I WAS THERE! I reported on it on this site. Why is the media still using this FALSE number?
The City of Cleveland gave the media the total number of people who were downtown that day -- most of whom were at the Browns game and went directly home afterward and did not stay for the BHO rally.
The security guard in the building where I work said a government agency (secret service or FBI -- I don't remember) signed around 10,000 people into the mall area for the rally.
The next morning I saw a news van on the very site. I asked one man with the news van why they used the 80,000 number. I told him I was at the rally and there were not that many people there. He said that that was the number the City of Cleveland gave him.
you mean like this? Scroll down for video - he couldn't shut them up -
I don't think the Left has any real clue how bad tomorrow is going to be
some people decided to paint a room or two in their houses and needed to watch the paint dry.
You gotta watch that stuff every minute!
They painted the White house, didn’t, and
it’s still wet behind the ears.
She taking over for the Black Panthers this year?
Hey, give Hussein a break. After all, there are so FEW blacks and union members in Cleveland!!!!
Liberals get their news from comedians and rappers.
Obama had none at his rally.
You forgot: For only a $30,000.00 donation to the DNC you can hear the great orator hisself speak.........
I highly doubt Obama was competing with church-goers.
Not those of us that vote our faith anyways.
Liberals on suicide watch starting on Wednesday.
