Romney gives major economic address, draws crowd...(sort of)

From Think Progress...

Comparing two speeches. The first from Mitt Romney today at a large sports arena/stadium...and the second President Obama during the 2008 campaign.

It just looks terrible and gives the Democrats another free swing at him...
