Politics: The Preezy of the United Steezy, as Barack Obama lets Jimmy Fallon refer to him, opens his re-election bid to a partially-filled stadium and a letter from his rival asking this year's key question: Where are the jobs?
There were no faux Greek columns when the president with the composite girlfriend and taste for canine filets officially began his 57-state campaign Saturday at Ohio State University's 18,300-seat Schottenstein Center that was only partially filled with those wearing faded "hope and change" T-shirts hoping to get their student loans paid off.
According to recent stats, only half of OSU graduates can expect to find jobs and like the rest of their brethren will take up residence in their parents' basements between occupy-whatever rallies. The one they were once again waiting for drew some 14,000 people to the arena. Before he spoke, the OSU newspaper, the Lantern, tweeted that ushers were asking people at the rally to move "in order for seats to look full for TV."
The glass looked less half-empty later at President Obama's next stop at a rally at the Siegel Center at the University of Virginia in another 2012 battleground state. It seats a more manageable crowd of 8,000. But the message was the same.
"If people ask you what the campaign is all about, hope. It's still about change," he told his Virginia audience after nearly four years of work on his golf game. The campaign is about waiting for nothing while an "economy built to last" on electric cars and windmills finally implodes under the weight of his own arrogance.

Obama is losing the independents by 10pts. He’s toast.
I've always been a fan of the triple-whammy-in-one-sentence style of writing. Yessiree.
What a great article. It reads like it was written by Mark Steyn.
I was hoping someone would lighten that up so we could see all the empty seats. Thanks!
The only reason this purple lipped POS has not already declared defeat is a dying media still gasping to hold on to what Soros promised them.
There was a period a few months ago where MooseChelle had slimmed down a bit. That didn’t last.
Or to paraphrase Johnnie Cochran
If the hips are wide, you must deride
Wow, I guess Francis isn’t the only one that can “lighten up” ;-)
Composite girlfriend? Did the president ever have a real girlfriend? Surely Michelle was not his first true love......?
“All they have to do is manipulate the right pressure points.”
Don’t underestimate the desperation of many Americans today; the same thing that got Obama his gig will cost him it. Besides the despair, you can add in the rage against an out-of-touch golfer who consistently shows he has no understanding of what is happening “on the ground”.
There are a lot of jobs for engineers, chemists, geologists, biologists, pharmacists,mathematicians, toxicologists, etc. and others that have degrees in the Pure and Applied Science.
All the above jobs have one thing in common. You must take a hell of a lot of courses in math, physics, chemistry, biology, botany, physiology, statistics, that are not easy. Industry will pay a premium salary for those that have achieved a premium education.
The day that I would have a test in geology, chemistry or pharmacy the next day was exactly like the day before. I read and studied for the next test.
However I must admit that at the end of each semester in the school of pharmacy and geology the majority of the students would get together and become incredibly drunk. A few days later would be the start of the next semester and it was back to classes, studying, tests, etc.
I have absolutely no sympathy for those that pursue degrees in majors that have absolutely no economic demand for such skills.
If you want those degrees that is fine. If you can not find a job with those degrees, it is not my responsibility to subsides you with my taxes because the market place had decided that your degree is of no economic worth.
There are a hell of a lot of jobs for those that will educate themselves in the areas of demand. The skills in demand are skills that are hard to accrue. If you can achieve those skills, you will be rewarded.
