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.

This is too good. I hope it’s emblematic.
Obama Launches Campaign in Empty Arena
A few percentage points on polls right now mean little or nothing. If Romney runs a good solid campaign and keeps the heat on the Obama record, he will win in November. We better hope he does, like him or don’t.
well stated, and exactly where voters need to be focused.
He will get fewer braindamaged republican votes than in 2008
Yes, Romney will pick them up.
It may well be the new Republican base...?
Brain dead and pre-dispose to compromise.
As well as,displaced “moderate” independents who believe the answer to combatting a liberal progreassive Democrat is to put a liberal progressive Republican in his place..???
Team Obama’s in luck - they’re DEMOCRATS - - the MSM will pretend they didn’t notice the place was half empty.
So true. Make this an Republican/Tea Party rep, and it would be front page.
His first Campaign stop and he forgets Michelle while stepping off the plane..
There was no teleprompter to let him know to look behind him to see if Mochelle was there, and then smile/wave to whomever was greeting them coming off the plane.
Once these two hacks leave office it will be interesting to see how they are treated.
Next you’re going to tell me no one fainted. Even w a crowd that size, surely someone fainted.
To be fair I don’t think Romney wants to go this road, anyone remember like 200 people in Fords Field at his event a few months back?
You’ve got their number...
That would make a great bumper sticker. Just just change the exclamation point to a question mark on the first line.
It’s like in the movie THIS IS SPINAL TAP where the band manager is trying to explain that the band isn’t playing in smaller arenas because the band’s popularity is waining: “Their appeal is just becoming more selective....”
I don’t think he or his bride has missed a day yet.
If I had a lawn jockey, it would look like Obama.
Another reason turnout was so low is because there were no free t-shirts or box lunches handed out.
“If people ask you what this campaign is about, you tell them its still about hope. You tell them its still about change, he told a cheering mass of supporters at Ohio State University in Columbus, six months and one day before the election. I still believe in you. And Im asking you to keep believing in me.
But, he got an ‘amen’, right? /s
