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.
