From Fainting Crowds of Thousands to Garage Speech Where Even the Host May Not Vote For Him

How the mighty have fallen:
As leader of the free world President Obama will be used to making speeches to millions of people around the globe.

So he might have felt the occasion was a little beneath him yesterday when he stopped off in Reno, Nevada, to deliver an address outside a couple’s garage.

In what could be a disastrous photo opportunity for the President’s campaign, Mr Obama spoke to a handful of people in the crucial swing state.

The president’s 15 minute address outside the home of Paul and Val Keller on Friday afternoon, drew a small audience of neighbours and supporters – though even his hosts said they were not sure if they would vote for him in the coming election.
I think Obama became a little shy about speaking in average neighborhoods after Joe the Plumber called him out on a street in Ohio. Now he usually sticks to speeches in homes of rich liberal movie stars.
