We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

I posted pictures of the oversized crowd at the Romney Rally in Jacksonville yesterday but Ohio pictures were in short supply.  The airport hanger Romney spoke at in Cincinnati maxed out at 4000 people so the overflow thousands had to go next door.  Here is a video of the overflow crowd exploding in support when Romney stopped by ahead of his formal remarks and introduced Ann Romney and Rob Portman:

Thousands turned out Saturday morning for a a brief but enthusiastic rally for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at Union Terminal. Romney – along side a host of Ohio GOP leaders, including U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, Sen. Rob Portman, and Ohio Treasurer and U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel – was critical of President Barack Obama’s efforts to create jobs. He stressed his plan to get Americans back to work. “We have seen in the last four years a lot of disappointment and a lot of families having hard times,” Romney said. “The jobs we lost were middle-income jobs and the jobs we are getting back are low-income jobs.

“(Obama) was going to heal the planet,” he said. “But we are going to help the American people and help the families of America. “I will do everything in my power to bring us together, because united, America built the strongest economy in the history of the Earth,” Romney said. “United, we put Neil Armstrong on the moon.” Romney’s wife, Ann, took the microphone briefly, telling the cheering crowd, “Help is on the way.” The 4,000 in attendance packed the museum center lobby waving signs and chanting “Mitt, Mitt.” The event was originally scheduled for outside with the historic building as a backdrop, but was moved inside due to the threat of wet weather.
