PARMA, Ohio – 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.

How shameful that an elected officeholder flies in to town on a publicly bought jet, is escorted and secured by probably hundreds of publicly paid police, to give a speech in a publicly owned facility, and the event is not open to the public. What a sham. I hope someone is reimbursing the taxpayers for the costs of this partisan campaign appearance.
