800 is way too low. The first 1300 people were supposed to be able to stand in a special section closer to the stage. That section was full and closed off way before I got there, and the rest of the grounds were packed, too. Did you see the guys from the mine? There were 200 of them from Twentymile, alone (that's who rented the buses), and I saw a huge number of people who weren't miners.
I was towards the back, standing on a table to try to see. It was pretty packed. The line to get in was at least three blocks long, and that was after they had been admitting people for a while. Still -- 2000 people on a work day in an area as rural as ours...not bad.
Sage Sam -- were you actually there, or are you basing your "sage" comment on the photos? I was there, and I'm pretty sure it was much more than 2000 people.
The buses were rented. I believe the signs were put up by the workers who came on the buses. If we can stop having kittens over these things and focus on the fact that our economy is in shambles, there may just be hope for this country yet. I don't hear any Dems crying and whining about Obama using taxpayer money to traipse around on his campaign trips, or using taxpayer money to send his family off on expensive vacations. But, OH MY GOD...if we think taxpayer money is going to pay for security and crowd control at a Republican candidate's event, it's the end of the world. I love that Romney came to our corner of the state. Not only does it give us a chance to participate in a rare and unique part of the democratic system, but it also provides hours of entertainment watching the local Democrats having conniption fits over every little thing.
Please. Posting propaganda from MoveOn.org is supposed to make people overlook the fact that Romney actually has business experience? (Does anybody, aside from devotees of the Democratic political machine, even read Move-On?) I think (hope) people around here are more intelligent than that. The economy is the most vital issue of this election. You Obamabots can try to distract from your guy's horrendous record on the economy all you want. Most people are smart enough to know that if we don't get someone in office who isn't crucifying the job creators at every turn, we're all in a world of trouble.
