Romney Rally at Red Rocks, Colorado — Live Feed, Capacity Crowd

I believe 9600 is the capacity and the event has been sold out since shortly after it was announced.

For those like the panoramic shots:

Thanks to John in the comments section, here is the actual live video feed:

      Looks to be working for me. It’s not a video feed with audio. It is constantly updated photos of the event.

      Apparently they also leave a garbage wasteland when they are done. I wonder how the left over trash compares between the crowds. I know the Tea Party is notorious for leaving the place spotless when they leave. I wonder if that translates to Republicans in general.

    Mitt has really won over the GOP base and independents. I am a disabled veteran and he just gave a thank you to all the vets in the crowd. I can’t wait to vote for Mitt.

    Huge story tonight from Reuters, the White House had emails from the intelligence community two hours after the attack that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack.

    I don’t know if any of you caught Rasmussen on O’Reilly’s show tonight but I thought he said something interesting. He alluded that the 3rd debate isn’t moving any of the numbers either way. Now granted, he’s just referring to today’s polling, which I’m sure was still ongoing, but if there was any indication that O picked up even a little bit of steam, he may have mentioned it to Bill.

      Thx. Missed it. CNN poll broke 25/25 on who they r going to vote for. They way I see it, if the second debate didn’t move any numbers, the 3rd debate shouldn’t.

    I was able to catch the tail end of Ryan’s speech and all of Mitt’s that 360photo link – THANK YOU – that looked amazing!

    Folks, we’ve been looking for someone to take up Reagan’s mantle. We’ve got him. When I first started reading about him in 2007 I thought he was too good to be true. He’s not. I have no doubt that Romney strongly believes in American exceptionalism. Tonight he strongly voiced that belief and it wasn’t scripted – that was real. When he talks about compassion and generosity he means it. Reading The Real Romney, your jaw can drop when you see his life and his family laid out. And how he regards Ann – just an incredible husband and father, a great leader, and a genuinely funny guy.

    The first debate really allowed him to shine and he’s been more comfortable since.

    And to Barf just above me, thank you for your service! The United States Armed Forces is the greatest force for peace the world has ever known. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard – the greatest men and women in the world can be found there. Always first on the scene whenever a disaster strikes and people need help.

    I have never been this excited going into an election, ever. I’ve said it before, but Romney has turned this campaign from being a vote against Obama into a vote for Mitt Romney. That’s why the enthusiasm is building. I think people are finding out a lot more about Romney and realizing he is fit for the job, he will do the job, and he will be someone we can look at with pride – and I think both sides of the aisle will feel that way, at least sizeable portions will.

      Thanks for your post. I, too, was changed from voting agains BO to voting for Romney after the debate.
      I’m more reserved in giving the Reagan mantle until: 1) He is elected 2) I see some actual action.

      I was burned with G.W. in thinking he was the next Reagan after 9/11 but was deeply disappointed in the end.

      I agree he has some great potential with his background and his service. I can’t take the bait hook, line and sinker like before.

      • Posted October 23, 2012 at 11:52 pm | Permalink

        I understand that. I was also disappointed in the end by W. I wouldn’t call him a bad President, but I had hoped to see the Federal Gov’t scaled back a bit, especially with the GOP in control.

        What I saw watching Romney tonight, though, was a cheerleader for America. Reagan did that so well. And, funny thing, Romney actually led cheers at football games when he was in high school, so there’s some experience. I think W believes in American exceptionalism, but I don;t think he was ever much a cheerleader for it. Like 1980, we need someone to boost our morale as a nation. Reagan did that and tonigh Romney seemed to be showing off that side of himself.

    Look at the last In-Trade for Ohio. It is almost 50-50 now. Not long ago it was 67 favor Obama.

    Obama unnerved — by Ohio? His campaign talking about how to reach 270 without Ohio.

      Going to be hard with Colorado swinging towards Romney. He’s coming here to Tampa, though the location is undisclosed right now. He’s not faring well in Tampa Bay from what I can tell. His campaign offices are usually fairly empty whereas Romney’s are packed. Their GOTV effort is not good here in Florida that we can see (and we do watch it). Our contacts are through the roof. Notice that the Obama campaign has not bragged about numbers while the GOP has. We’ve done more door knocks and phone calls than you can imagine. The energy is through the roof and volunteers keep on showing up by the truckload. The buzz tonight was that internal polling is showing an 8 point lead in Florida. The feeling is that Obama is either coming back here for show or is coming here because he’s so desperate that Ohio is lost. There’s also been talk that Romney is opening up some daylight between himself and Obama in Ohio, around 3 points.

        I don’t know if what u r saying is legit, but it sure is fascinating. Keep it coming, as long as you think it is reliable.

        I’m having some trouble believing that entirely. If internals are +8 in FL, why would O consider Ohio lost and not Florida? It seems FL is more lost than OH. Right?

        I’ve read about this a bit on several blogs.

        Seems to be a combination of some or all of:

        1) A head-fake to keep Romney bunkered down in FL to prevent him moving into PA, MI, etc
        2) Obama knows he’s losing and it’s a “Hail Mary” grab in a rich EV state.
        3) Demographics being more favourable to Obama (e.g. more Hispanics compared to “White” Ohio).
        4) Early voting in Florida is good but not as overwhelming for Republicans as some thought.

        Dunno how true any of these are, but the implication is that Obama’s struggling in Ohio and is casting around for other ways to shore up his firewall.

      • Posted October 24, 2012 at 4:44 pm | Permalink

        NO WAY internals shows Romney +8. No Way! Neither candidate would touch the state these last two weeks if it was really that big. Obama would move to another, closer state or states as a backup firewall. He would hit Virginia HARD, NH, IA, Colorado, Wi, Nevada, etc. +8 is a lost cause,.

        Romney is still spending money and working the crowd. My guess is Florida has been overblown and internals show Romney +2-4 (which is overcomable). No way he would give up Ohio where is at WORST tied to take on a +8 state.

        I think we all need to calm down and come back down to Earth. Internals are just that…they DO NOT GET SHARED…at least accurately. They are CLOSELY guarded information that truly probably less than 2 dozen very high up people in a campaign get to see. This is a TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT race. Ohio is dead tied. Florida, Virginia, NH and Colorado are trending Romney but are still within striking distance for Obama.

        DO NOT REST OR GET TOO CONFIDENT. Two week is an eternity.
