Obama rally ignites USC

October 22, 2010 |  2:16 pm


President Obama is currently at USC to speak to crowds of students and the public in an effort to energize voters for the midterm election.

The Twitterverse is especially active with comments from supporters, voters and critics.

Here are a few sample tweets:

@RANKIS: Went to UCLA, but I'd love to be at #ObamaUSC right now. Okay L.A. stand as one. It's your day. It's California's day. It's the Nation's day

@hotpsychic: I have a psychic prediction. Republicans will win 120 seats in the House, and all 33 in the Senate. #ObamaUSC

@jdguenther: Overheard at USC Obama rally "We should have tailgated." 

@marc_cooper: RT @neontommy: New Slideshows from the ground at USC: #uscobama #obamausc

@hillelaron: Jamie foxx: "can I put y'all on my twitter?"

@allisonkgibson: Jerry Brown kept it shockingly short.

@NotYaAvg80sBaby: wish i was able to go see Obama today ... heard the line was 4000 people long at 8am said forget it lol #obamausc

The hashtags #obamausc and #uscobama are trending in Los Angeles. You can follow either stream to get attendees' live impressions.
