    that update is missing.
    along with update that it was Secret Service who had some concerns and cause this delay.

    CRINGE WORTHY.

      Like someone actually leaving from where Romney is would be a threat.

      Wouldn't pay to own up to it now would it?

      Frankly, I really don't get a damn either way.

        this diary is the equivalent of red state free republic garbage about how obama supporters leave his rallies because they are bored, that no one even attends his rallies, and that riots occur at his rallies .
        all diaried at both sites, all recc'd, all drooled over, all based on some tweets from one or two people, all based on lies, and all no reported by the lamestream media .

        funny how all these tortured souls are being held in some prison camp and and are NOT talking to the media isn't it.

        oh that's right - you don't care.

          was citing "security concerns"?  It wasn't the Secret Service.  It was staffers or campaign event people.  And frankly, Romney's/GOP's campaign people were bullshitting.  They were making that up when they told that to people.  Not letting people out to go home or go to the bathroom or whatever has nothing to do with "security" at a campaign event.  The crowd has to be able to do what it needs to do to stay comfortable for true "security" at a campaign event.  

          They just didn't want images of the crowd streaming out, or of a thinned crowd.  It was all about the optics, but they justified it with "security concerns."  That's pretty callous, and pretty par for the course with the Romney campaign.

          That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
