President Barack Obama's campaign staff is currently five times the size of Mitt Romney's.
No reports of any staff envy from Romney. An adviser to his campaign says:
“My guess is that, other than trying to personally lower the unemployment rate, they have to hire a lot of people. They have to have an enormous operation to offset the fact that there are 24 million Americans out of work, gas is over $4 a gallon, and there’s a housing crisis.”
