10,000 people at the Romney/Ryan rally at the MSP Airport. Spot on. How many people were at the Clinton rally? Why wasn't that number reported? Just wondering... ???

It wasn't 10,000, closer to 12,000 that came to see Ryan. Further, Channel 9 reported that 4,500 showed up to see Bubba in St Cloud, and most of them were college students.

The Strib includes 8 pictures of the surrogate Clinton out in St Cloud, but only 1 of the contender Ryan in Minneapolis. Gee, how did that happen.

10k at a Ryan rally. Who knows how many at Clintons St Cloud visit. Romney had 4500 at Des Moines IA and 6100 at Cleveland OH. Obama had 23000 at Hollywood FL, 24000 in Virginia, and 14000 in New Hampshire. Let do a little math. 10000+4500+6100=20600 for the Romney Ryan combo. 23000+24000+14000=62000 for Obama plus whatever Clinton had. Don't know if Joey talked anywhere. Why the difference? Just wondering...????

"10,000 people at the Romney/Ryan rally at the MSP Airport. Spot on. How many people were at the Clinton rally? Why wasn't that number reported? Just wondering... ???"................Posts such as this one just inform the readers that this campaign has gone of FAR, FAR too long. Sinking into the petty little weeds, comparing rally crowd size is amusing, especially when you're comparing the two top GOP on the ticket to a former president who's not even running for anything! Don't worry - it'll all be over in 48 hours when our commander in chief is handily reelected!

Who cares how many people showed up to see Ryan or Clinton. The most importance issue is how many people show up to "VOTE"

I bet that had the Clinton crowd been bigger than the Ryan crowd estimates would have been prominent in the article. Lots of spin this week.

I was waiting and hoping for Paul Ryan to flat out deny the Romney participation in the Delco outsourcing of jobs to China in 2009. I don't think Romney should have to release his 2009 tax returns to disprove it either.

Finally, I was kind of hoping that GWB would make an appearance in the state to rally the troops.
