Romney and Empty Ford Field

One of the first rules in political campaigning I learned is to never speak in a bigger room than your audience. If you expect 20 people, schedule a room that holds 18. If your expecting a crowd of 1200, hold it in a hall that seats 1000. You always want to leave the fire marshal complaining.

I knew from the get go that Romney's speech at Ford Field was destined for disaster, he'd have to bus in half the population of Provo, Utah to make it look decent. As it was, he "sold out" the event at 1,200 fatcats (Using an extremely liberal definition of the phrase "sold out" as apparently even the folding chairs weren't filled.). It doesn't matter what Romney said today when everybody will be laughing at the pathetic images.
