Mitt Romney at Ford Field
"It's quite the venue for Romney's speech" @MaeveReston
those wide shots at the Romney Ford Field event aren't doing him any favors.

So apparently football stadiums only carry sound when there are 60K people watching a game. Can barely here the crowd clap here in Detroit.

Romney thanks Ford Field for hosting: "I guess we had a hard time finding a large enough place to meet... and this certainly is."

"This is not exciting and barn-burning," Romney says in wind-up to his Detroit policy speech

After this Ford Field debacle, I want to Photoshop Mitt Romney speaking in other thinly populated areas.

Romney squeezes Detroit event into deserted stadium.

CNN breaks away. MSNBC talking over, Fox and Bloomberg TV not airing Romney speech.

Tomorrow, Mitt Romney will address the Arizona Economic Club in the Grand Canyon.

Mitt Romney is expected to mimic Obama's 2008 trip to Berlin by delivering a foreign policy address in the sand dunes of Egypt.

Speaking of 2008 ... suffice it to say, President Obama's speech in Denver wasn't a Romney event:
Obama in Denver

10:03 AM PT: Sorry, I couldn't resist one more hilarious photo of the scene in Detroit:

By the way, if you listened to the speech, it was as empty as the stadium—he didn't mention anything new, just the same old tired crap. Pure vapidity.

10:12 AM PT: Oh, and here was President Obama in Detroit on Labor Day 2011.

10:24 AM PT: Another great angle of #romneyfail, this time from Greg Sargent:

Here's a shot that shows the Romney speech didn't even fill up the folding chairs in front of the stage:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
