Skip to comments.President's rally attracts 35,000 at Ohio State
Posted on 10/18/2010 7:20:06 AM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta
Seeking to fire up the Democratic base and the young voters who helped put him into office in 2008, President Barack Obama urged an overflow crowd on the Ohio State University Oval last night to reject a Republican agenda "that nearly destroyed the economy."
"We need you fired up because in a little more than two weeks, you can set the direction of this state and the direction of this country for not just the next two years, but the next five years, the next 10 years, the next 20 years," Obama said to the crowd, which university police estimated at 35,000.
It's believed to be the largest Obama rally since his his inauguration.
"This is the same theory they have been peddling for years," Obama said of GOP policies on regulation, taxes, trade and other issues that he blamed for causing the recession.
"And Ohio, it is up to you to tell them we do not want what they are selling. We've been there before, and we are not going back."
Larissa Gerber and Johanna Moeckel, both 22-year-old OSU seniors who attended the rally, said they voted for Obama in 2008. They both think Obama has done a good job in office so far and "definitely" plan to vote this year.
But Ben Boeke, 30, a Grove City engineer who attended the rally with his wife and 3-year-old son, said he is leaning toward supporting Kasich in the governor's race because "nothing's really changed the last four years with Strickland."
The president also held a small fundraiser in Columbus before the OSU rally for the Democratic National Committee that was expected to raise $250,000.

They needed something to cheer about after Saturday’s football game with Wisconsin.
Ohil State rally
Mr. Skittles, Ohio is lost. Best Regards.
Ohil must be one of those 7 extra states.
Meanwhile, an OSU home game draws over 150,000...
Keep smiling loser, your day of reckoning is coming.
Ohio State rally...
He’s right about the Republicans getting the wrecking ball rolling.
The spinelessness when Andrew Cuomo first introduced the idea of allowing unqualified people to obtain home mortgages.
The “compassionate” spending.
The utter spinelessness in standing up to the DemonRATs Dodd and Fwank as they insisted there was no need to audit Freddy and Fanny.
But 0bama forgot to mention that the DemonRATs want another chance to finish the job of wrecking the economy.
Is this the Lords way of sending a prediction of what is coming on November 2, 2010.
Every where the one goes, destruction follows.
Strickland is going the same way that the buckeyes went this past weekend.
Did anyone notice that Zero is campaigning in BLUE states?
They have to campaign in Blue States to try and keep their majority?
They must be in DEEP DO-DO................
“Keep smiling loser, your day of reckoning is coming.”
OTAY SPANKY :>)
“Did anyone notice that Zero is campaigning in BLUE states”?
...oh yeah! Delaware, California, Ohio! This spells BIG trouble for the kenyan usurper.
Ohil State lost a football game to Wisc last week end.
I believe it borders the lakes of Hope and Change just off the left coast........
At this point his image is so bad that he’s having to do rallys in blue CITIES in soon to be former blue States. I’m not sure he gets 5000 to show up anywhere outside of a large school campuses at this point.
Sunday night. College town. Nothin’ to do. Hey, lets go to the Bama rally. I’ll make a beer run first!
Ah, yes, the college students.
During the 2008 elections in a nearby college town, some students were voting by absentee ballot in their hometowns, and voting again in the college town.
Must be nice to have all your expenses paid for and get the extra advantage of casting (at least) two votes for every election to guarantee your free ride.
Just don’t complain when you graduate and there’s no job for you.
No....we need YOU just plain fired, Bammy
Couldn’t help but notice ...
“the crowd, which university police estimated at 35,000. It’s believed to be the largest Obama rally since his inauguration.”
“estimated” and “believed” ROFL. Reads a lot like Hope and Change.
If the estimator was an Obama voter, then the crowd was ACTUALLY half that.
No wonder they lost the football game.
"Barack, you think these cheering suckers will vote Democrat, again, after all your screwups."
" My screwups? You the one who went globe-trotting to Spain. That dumba** trip killed my agenda."
35,000 people who haven’t yet tried to find a job. Good luck with that.
Close, 105k... but I see your point.
And so, Obama continues his Diz Kids Reichstag Rallies in college towns across America. Among the many things the lamestram media is failing to notice (in addition to how small the crowds are compared to the available sitting) is that the carefully orchestrated Reichstag Rallies are more for the fading charlatan than for his candidates or party.
SOBama desperately needs adoration. Without it, he sinks back into the blue funk of knowing that he is nothing more than a “mongrel” (his word, not mine) with nothing more to offer than narcissism and platitudes.
As to the Diz Kids who turn out to watch the production, I have to think that a lot of them turn out for the very reason my pro-Vietnam War fraternity brothers used to hop in the car and drive down to the anti-Vietnam War rallies on the mall: “Come on,” they would tell me gleefully, “there’s going to be lots of good [word we cannot use on FR) there.”
You took the words right out of my mouth!
Yuk. No, thanks...
Her sweater is way too small and her pants are too big (thank goodness we were not subjected to tight pants on her ever growing backside). And it looks as if he got his wedding ring "repaired".
“Attracts” or buses in?
FWIW, it seems the band/artist “Legend” performed prior to Obama’s entry. Imagine that, kids went to a free concert for a popular singer.
Oh ... a singer who’s had videos produced by Spike Lee.

Honest .. I don't know HOW that happened.
i am really amazed he drew that many
was there free beer?
Vote 2010. LOL.
We will, Obama. We will.
Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa higher taxes.....yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 10% unemployment.....yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Zerocare.....yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa your in debt kid for about $60k.....yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
They’re officially chillrun now till age 26 so they can just live with mom.
She looks like she’s wearing maternity clothes
The surrounding area is lower income to the east and south, progressives in Upper Arlington.
Well, 105k in the stadium, and another 50k partying on Lane and High streets. WAY more for OSU-Michigan...
"Tell the president we have done so."
Of course there’s a huge turnout. It’s a huge state school. I think the American people have grown weary of the constant campaigning. Who’s running the show while he’s galavanting across the country trying to save his ego? He needs to do his job or get the hell out.
Note the “Vote” signs with the Zero logo.
I wasn’t aware that he was running in 2010.
It really is all about him, isn’t it?
The Dems aren’t worried about Ohio. The word is that the ‘Progressives’ have requested absentee ballots 2:1 (DtoR).
“it seems the band/artist Legend performed prior to Obamas entry. Imagine that, kids went to a free concert for a popular singer.”
That’s what Obama did during the 2008 election, I figured there was live music for this also to draw the kids in.
BTW, where are the white people in that video? Other than the white women used as props in the one dream sequence....
Is the reason he never wears a tie, because he doesn’t know how to tie one?
