Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan held a rally at a packed Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo., tonight. It was a sight to behold:

Red Rocks officially holds almost 9,500 people. There were just a few more ticket holders than could be accommodated:
My wife and daughter tried to go to Romney rally at Red Rocks and were turned away. Packed house sellout. Couldn't get close to event.

So sad. Waited 2 hours in line and did NOT get into Red Rocks to see our future President Romney. Thousands turned away!!!!

Drove 500+ miles to Romney rally at Red Rocks. Didn't get in. Don't mind (much). Crowd huge. 1000s couldn't get in. This is a good thing.

Enthusiasm? You could say that.

Amazing event in Colorado, Red Rocks. People holding signs "Democrats for Romney" At least 9,000 attended.

Justin Romney or Mitt Beiber? MT @PhilipRucker: Thousands of Coloradans are screaming Mitt's name at Red Rocks. Like at a Bieber concert.

Oh, they saw it, SP. Here’s your proof:
Hope reporters remind their audience Romney/Ryan's Red Rocks event is occurring in a facility built by the gov't via FDR's socialist CCC.

Colorado Dems pointing out the irony of Romney event at Red Rocks, which was built entirely w/ public funds in 1930's. http://t.co/mnulJNVG

Do you think conservatives let that weak talking point slip by unchallenged? Of course not.
@GarrettNBCNews Do they also point out the irony of Romney using a highway which was built with public funds. Or how about the airport.
— GarCasey (@GarCasey) October 24, 2012
@GarrettNBCNews ummm… So are all the streets and town squares where Romney has had rallies.

Romney credits the power of God for the beauty of Red Rocks. Cue indignant Tweets about the WPA in 3… 2… 1…

Feel that, libs? It’s momentum — and your guy doesn’t have it. Just ask Sandra Fluke.
