#rsrh Fiscal irresponsibility over at OfA? *Perish* the thought.

Still, I can’t help but feel that the Return on Investment on this one wasn’t all that:

According to disclosure forms with the Federal Election Commission, President Obama’s reelection team appears to have paid $92,751.50 to rent the Ohio State University’s Jerome Schottenstein Center, the site of the campaign’s much touted kick-off even in May.

Via Instapundit.  The problem for Team Obama, of course, is that they paid ninety-two thousand, seven hundred and fifty one dollars (and fifty cents: gotta wonder what that one was for) for a 20,000 seat stadium that they managed to only get 14,000 to fill.  For Obama’s kickoff event. Which was held in a college town.  And, admittedly, which I had already mocked at the time; still, I hadn’t realized quite how much money the Obama campaign had wasted on that event.

That’s probably it, with one important caveat:.  I hope nobody got fired over this.

No, really.  I hope nobody got fired.

    I think it’s a win-win, Moe.

    If Team Choom* keeps the incompetents around, we get several more months of comedy gold.

    If someone gets “laid off”, then .. we get to re-edit all the “Romney-as-layoff-artist” hit pieces.

    Not seeing a downside here.

    Do not forget the other logistical costs associated with the event, and the morale costs for the people who organized it and watched the kick-off go flop. This event hurt.

    I cheerfully encompass my enemy’s DOOOM!!!!!!

    Seriously, I love watching Obama’s team take punches in the nads.
