Democrats Getting Ready To Move Obama’s DNC Speech From 74,000 Seat Outdoor Bank of America Stadium To 20,000 Seat Indoor Arena … Is His Popularity Waning?
Once again Barack Obama has a ‘Spinal Tap’ moment … is Obama’s popularity waning? Nah, it’s just becoming more select.
Democrats are getting ready to move Barack Obama’s DNC speech from a 74,000 seat outdoor Bank of America Stadium to a 20,000 seat indoor arena. It would appear that maybe Obama and Democrats do not have enough buses for astro-turfed individuals bussed in and receiving free tickets to fill Bank of America Stadium. Democrats hardly want the optics of a half empty stadium when Obama speaks on Thursday night. It would seem that Dems are blaming the weather for the change. Hmm, and I thought that Obama could part the seas, and control the tides, weather and climate? Really Dems, now you are blaming the weather for the switch-a-roo? According to weather reports there is a 30% chance of rain. But wy not, you have blamed everything else except yourself during your Presidency.
Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor arena and citing ‘severe weather’.
The Obama campaign have been working desperately to ensure that the 74,000-seater Bank of America stadium in Charlotte would be filled.
Buses for students from across North Carolina and even members of black churches in neighboring South Carolina have been arranged
Footage of rows of empty seats at the stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, as Obama speaks on Thursday night would be politically disastrous – an enduring image of the contrast between his campaign of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ in 2008 and his dour, negative struggle for re-election in 2012.
So the question remains:
Marty DeBergi (rockumentary director):Reporter at the DNC – The last time TapObama toured America, they where, uh, booked into
10,000 seat arenas, and 15,000 seat venues, and it seems that now, on their current tour they’re being booked into 1,200 seat
arenas, 1,500 seat arenas, and uh I was just wondering, does this mean uh…the popularity of the group is waning?
Ian Faith (Spinal Tap maganer):Obama minion & mouth piece: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no…no, no, not at all. I, I, I just think that the..uh.. their appeal is becoming more selective.
Best line of a post comes from the Vodka Pundit, President Empty Chair is trying to solve the problem of empty seats when he delivers his big speech. Brilliant! If Democrats can spring for the buses and tickets, why not umbrellas and ponchos for all?
All of this is going to translate into a suppressed and uninspired turn out for Obama in November. Not only is he not going to replicate what he did in 2008, it is going to truly pale in comparison.

what? 4 years and Owe can’t GIVE away tickets to fill a 74,000 stadium? what? the dems don’t have the ID to get in? Say it ain’t so
With ten thousand already in the area,they would need to get another sixt-four thousand on the buses. The large tour buses will seat about forty-two which means they would need to have over fifteen hundred buses.
Finding that many for charter at this late date would not be possible. It is easier to go to a smaler venue and cut the bus count to two hundred forty.
Unless we get photos from those inside that are not media, we will never know if the arena was not filled.
