It has been a reliable bellwether county for all its history for the nation and the state up until 2008. Let’s hope it assumes its previous role as a bellwether.

Well, yeah, but they're only showing up to see Katy Perry shake her t*ts...oh wait, that was last night for the other guy.

10K showing up with no promise of alternate entertainment? Maybe there really is something to this guy Willard...

N. Canton is a nice little town. They are going to get slammed with traffic for Mitt, is what I heard.

It’s the former home of Hoover Company.... the company labor destroyed.

Now that place is on its a$#!

Does anybody know what size crowds the dimbulb in the WH is getting? We never see any pictures of his audiences.

Check out brian ‘obie’s lap dog’ williams’ piece last night
Even he sadly admitted that Obozo has gone from 50,000 people rallies in 08 to.... Under 5000 this time around. Except on te larger college campuses where his emo robots cohabitate.. Then he pulls in 10-15
Still a far cry from 08 and that in itself is quite telling

Rush just mentioned how even Brian Williams (aka 0's lapdog) is admitting 0's crowds of zombies have significantly decreased.

10,000 for Romney - in Ohio - is awesome!! Please, OH, we're counting on you!!!

Everytime I hear of one of R/R's huge crowds, it recalls the thought of Ødious's stadium cancellation for a few sprinkles and a couple booms of thunder 50mi away.

And THEN the maggot / dhimmie freak show couldn't even fill a basketball arena !

Small town Ohio, at that. No big towns within 50 miles.

I’ll be there! I live about a half hour from Defiance, and we’re leaving for the rally in a couple of hours to get in line. I’ll try to post up some pictures, if we get in. :)

I'm in Las Vegas for a few days and last night my wife and I were at the Fremont Street Experience. They had a section of it roped off and apparently it was some sort of Obama "pep rally" event. We did not see a whole lot of people in that section and when we were leaving later that night, they had everything taken down.

On another note, the radio has Romney or Obama ads constantly. So this is a state very much in play.

The only large Obama rallys I have heard about have been at colleges and universities. Even then they seem to run 3-5k. Outside of that Sandra Fluck filled a parking spot with 10 people in NV recently.

I hope there is more than 15,000 who show up in Ohio. The reports said Mitt drew a crowd of 15,000 in Denver, but it looked like much more from the pictures.

In Richmond VA today, where the weather is beautiful, the news is that Obama drew a crowd of 15,000 according to the count by Obama's campaign, given to them by a Lt. in the Fire Dept. At Byrd Park, Obama calls election stark choice

Romney speaks here on Saturday. It is supposed to be raining badly. I am worried because Romney really needs a larger crowd here, too. But I doubt that, even if he draws a huge gathering, the Liberal media here will report it. I don't trust anyone in the media anymore to correctly estimate these crowds.

“Heard R & R had 10k people plus to a rally at Red Rocks...”

Yeah, but local CBS estimated 20,000 showed up, even though Red Rocks itself holds only 10,000. Events started at 6:30pm and doors opened at 4:30pm. One poster said they were already turning away ticket holders in line at 4:30pm. I thought about going but glad I didn’t. Traffic in and out of Redrocks is a nightmare, esp. with 20,0000 showing up for a 10,000 venue. I watched the good parts online the next day. (I could care less about Kid Rock, and the others there anyway.)

.

- I just watched a former CIA man speak to Neil Cavuto on Fox News Channel about Obama, Paneta, Hillary, etc. -

- “BAD” and “SILLY” people who just watched for hours (in “real time”) as Ambassador Stevens and three others were tortured and died and - and King Obama & his Court did nothing to help them or to rescue them -

.

Can you imagine General George Patton saying this to General Eisenhower when US Airbourne soldiers were encircled by the Germans and freezing:

“Golly Ike!

If I take our tankers to save them we might lose some of my men!

Let’s just wait and HOPE things improve and maybe even CHANGE for the better!

Anyone want another of my beers while we eat this delicious tender Kobi beef?”

He is doing a flyby at Cleveland tonight, we'll see what the turnout is. Word is the 'rats are pulling out all the stops to pump up crowd size for the Flying Chicago Sh*twagon to disgrace Airforce One on the tarmac of Burke Lakefront.

On the Scene reporter last night at Red Rock, she is a native of Denver, she said “ That was the largest crowd she ever seen at Red Rock. Mitt and Ryan were in Las Vegas Tuesday, you could not get near the place.Long lines trying to get in for standing room only.

I was there, and the crowd was huge:

At least 12,000 people, probably more. This was one of the largest rallies ever held in NW Ohio. The population of Defiance is about 16,000, so we came close to doubling the size of the city for the evening. :)

fast forward to 14:25 if you want to skip Rob Portman and Governor Kasich.

Mitt had trouble starting because we kept cheering. :)

‘Traffic in and out of Redrocks is a nightmare.’

I’ve been there when there was a handful of people. Great place.
Are you anywhere near Littleton? Have a daughter and family there. Another daughter is visiting there at the moment. Delightful (for Californians!) snow Thursday!

True-But North Canton, Ohio WAS the Corporate HG for Hoover Company.

Strictly speaking, the Timken Company has always been a Canton concern. That is where THEIR Corporate HQ is. They are still a going concern but certainly could be doing better with the right person in the WH.

I don't know who Col. West is, but CONGRESSMAN West would stick his finger in the air, see which way the wind was blowing, and shout "Justice for Trayvon!"

Just like he did back in March.
