TOO BIG TO FILL … DNC Moves Barack Obama Speech From 75,000 Seat Football Stadium to 15-20,000 Seat Time Warner Cable Arena Citing bad Weather, More Like Because They Could Not Fill It
TOO BIG TO FILL …Obama is “Lost in Smallness” once again, literally.
Now Obama and Democrats are blaming the weather. Why not they have blamed everything else for Obama’s failures.
The decline of Barack Obama … DNC officially moves President Barack Obama’s speech from the 70,000 seat Bank of America football stadium where the NFL Carolina Panthers play to the Time Warner Cable Arena. Democrats are citing bad weather. Please, spare of the BS. The fact of the matter is that Obama could not fill the 70,000 seat stadium and he did not want to be embarrassed with empty seats. Instead Barack Obama will be speaking in an arena that holds between 15,000 and 20,000 people depending on how the event is set up. Local meteorologist puzzled by Obama speech move seeing that Thursday was supposed to be the nicest day of the week. In any event the DNC, Obama and his minions can stick their collective heads in the sand all they want, Obama’s days are numbered and his best days are behind him. Hope & Change is over, Obama’s failed record rules the day.
Democrats today announced that President Barack Obama’s big speech on Thursday night will move from the vast Bank of America stadium to the much-smaller Time Warner indoor arena.
While organisers blamed weather forecasts of lightning, the switch means that Obama has avoided the possibility of having to accept his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium. Just hours earlier, officials had been insisting the speech would go ahead in the stadium ‘rain or shine’.
‘We have been monitoring weather forecasts closely and several reports predict thunderstorms in the area, therefore we have decided to move Thursday’s proceedings to Time Warner Cable Arena to ensure the safety and security of our delegates and convention guests,’ said convention chief Steve Kerrigan.
But convention sources exclusively told the MailOnline on Tuesday that the real reason behind the switch was fears within the Obama campaign that there would be large numbers of empty seats in the 74,000-seater stadium. The Time Warner arena has a capacity of just over 20,000.
Also reported at the Washington Times, former New Hampshire Republican governor John Sununu theorized that the Democrat party is moving the final night of its Democratic National Convention because it can’t fill the planned venue, and not because of possible bad weather. Theorize? As reported at Weasel Zippers, CNN reports the Obama campaign gave away only 65,000 tickets to Bank of America Stadium, capacity is over 74,000.
The Lonely Conservative opines that there will be an awful lot of angry Democrats. So where are all of the other 50,000 Democrats going to go? Are police going to have to turn people away? Imagine if you are a Democrat and purchased hotel rooms and took time off of work to see Obama speak? Don’t worry, now you know how the rest of us feel about being screwed by this President. But Democrats already know about disappointment from Obama, don’t they?
I kinda like the title “Too Big to Fill”, but I must admit a close second is over at Michelle Malkin.com … “You Didn’t Fill That!”
