If I were Mitt Romney I’d fire the boneheaded campaign aide who booked a Romney speech into the 65,000 seat Ford Field in Detroit today. Of course the place is going to look bare:
This move was either stupid or arrogant. Or both. Whatever, the optics are awful and one can’t help but compare the pitiful pictures above to the 4,000+ who came out to see Ron Paul at Michigan State, it's only 4,000, surely doesn't rate any TV air compared with Romney's latest where 85 showed up. We know this because Romney is "preordained" whereas Ron Paul "can't win"
