Ohio Mittmentum Followup

Just spoke with my brother who tried to get into the Romney rally in West Chester, Ohio.   He said he arrived over an hour-and-a-half before it was supposed to start and he couldn’t get it.  The line when he gave up was over 1/2 mile long.  And the rally was only just starting.



  1. Noticed something driving through swing-county Loudoun VA this morning.

    1. The Romney-Ryan signs tend to be on private property, while the Obame-Biden signs are mostly at places like freeway interchanges.

    2. The Romney-Ryan signs have the names of the candidates in big bold letters. The names Obama and Biden are in teeny-tiny font in the middle of large blue fields.

    This leads me to think that Romney-Ryan support is personal and grassroots while Obama signs were put out by paid campaign workers in public spaces, and the design of the signs suggest even the Obama people are embarrassed to display the names of the Failure and the Buffoon too prominently.

  2. I think one of the telling things in NH is how many yards have signs for down ticket democrats but there isn’t a single Obama sign among them.

    Makes me think either there is an Obama sign shortage in NH or some people are voting democrat at the state level, but not intending to vote for Obama.

    They can do that in the Dominion State?! In my state, campaign signs on public property is strictly verboten . Every two years the state DOT issues a press release–twice, once before the primary and again before the general election—that medians, rights-of-way, and interchanges—is forbidden public property.

    I don’t recall seeing one presidential campaign sign in my area; but my state (and county) are so red, they haven’t voted for a Democrat since LBJ. The Obama supporters are only brave enough to slap a bumper sticker on their Priuses.
