Obama has to beg people to come see him. Again.

This is starting to become a trend.

For his last visit a few weeks ago to the Buckeye state, OSU students were asked to show up at the last minute to fill seats at Obama’s event for Ted Strickland.

And now this happens today:

With less than an hour before President Obama’s scheduled speech, 75 seats remained empty in the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus.

So organizers went around campus and recruited more students to fill the seats.

Student Jennifer Rahal, of Parma Heights, whose class was canceled today, was working on her art work in the coffee shop in the basement of the building when the call went out for more guests.

After dropping off their stuff at a bag check, the newly invited guests cleared security and filed into the gym.

How incredibly embarrassing.

Of course, when your Ohio approval rating has plummeted 43 points in less than two years, I guess this isn’t exactly unexpected.
