Thin Crowd for Cleveland Campaign RallyMaybe voters, particularly those in Ohio where Obama has visited over and over and over are just sick and tired of hearing him complain about Republicans and make the same tired excuses on why his "hope and change" routine has been replaced by fear and loathing!

CLEVELAND — President Obama wrapped up a weekend of last-minute campaigning in Ohio on Sunday, addressing Democrats in an indoor arena that, in a sign of the “enthusiasm gap” that the president is working so hard to close, was little more than half full.
About 8,000 people attended the Democratic National Committee’s Moving America Forward’ rally at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center, a hall where the capacity is 13,000. The rafters were largely empty.
On a related matter, an AP poll of former Obama voters shows that 47% say he deserves to be defeated in 2012!
