    Weeks ago the economic club moved Romney's speech to the cavernous Detroit landmark Ford Field after the campaign said a smaller venue quickly reached capacity. But the audience of 1,200 seated on the AstroTurf in the football stadium appeared dwarfed by the 65,000 seats arcing above them on all sides.

    "I guess we had a hard time finding a large enough place to meet," Romney said during his speech. "And this certainly is."

    Laughter and applause from the audience were swallowed up in the giant venue, which made the response appear muted to those seated inside.
