Ohio: Biden meets the farmers (sort of!)

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for this to be over and had no intention of saying a word today—-that is, until I saw this story from Ohio that made me smile.   Seems Joe Biden had a little rally going on in the local Middle School, but with only 24 hours notice the pro-Romney tractor counter-rally came to be.  It was a Chick-fil-A moment for an Ohio farm community.

See the whole story and check out the John Deeres here at Gateway Pundit.

It only took 24 hours for a small group of Romney/Ryan supporter to gather forces and pull together a tractor pull to counter Vice President Joe Biden’s rally Sunday at Rushville Middle School.

In that short amount of time, Joe Young, one of the men who started the event, said they were able to secure a location, food and drink, a 20’-by-40’ American flag and more than 25 tractors and other big pieces of machinery.

“It all started from a phone call,” said Young, of Rushville. “We thought we’d have our own rally and it really blossomed from there. I just can’t believe how quickly it came together.”

As Biden’s campaign set up inside the gymnasium of the middle school, Republicans started setting up their demonstration directly across the street in a field.

Mike Ricketts, the property owner, said he was more than willing to let his fellow farmers and friends use his property.

“We wanted to make a statement,” Ricketts said. “And people just came.”

And, in just 24 more hours…….
