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.
The Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton Compares GOPs To Nazi Propaganda Chief Joseph Goebbels (VIDEO)
I guess this is what President Barack Obama was talking about when he referenced civility in politics … Welcome to Obama “Hope and Change” in 2012.
John Burton, the Chairman of the California Democratic Party provided more smear politics yesterday when he compared the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Democrat John Burton took the high road, for Moonbat Democrats, and smeared GOP Vice-Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan for “lying” about the Janesville GM Plant, even though Paul Ryan was not lying.
The Chairman of the California Democratic Party already had political pundits, delegates and rivals buzzing a day before the Democratic National Convention formally opened in Charlotte, North Carolina, after telling KCBS Radio exclusively that Republican tactics had been akin to Nazi propaganda.
“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie,” Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton told KCBS Monday in Charlotte. “As long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels, the big lie, you keep repeating it, you know.”
LISTEN TO A DEMOCRAT LOON IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Really? The DNC Convention has just begun and we have Democrats acting with such vile behavior. But should it really come as a surprise to the Republican party? As alliterated at Powerline, put a bunch for freaks together in one place and you get a freak show. Mitt Romney has been called in political ads, by Democrat pundits and surrogates of Obama a felon, a tax cheat, and a murderer. One would naturally think that being compared to a Nazi was right up their ally.
UPDATE I: The GOP demands an apology for outrageous Nazi comment. California Democrat Chair Burton makes an non-apology apology regarding the Nazi propaganda comment.
UPDATE: In response to the uproar over his (below) comments Monday, California Democratic Party Chair John Burton issued this statement:
“To correct press reports of my recent comments about Republican lies, I did not call Republicans Nazis nor would I ever. In fact, I didn’t even use the word.
“If Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or the Republicans are insulted by my describing their campaign tactic as the big lie – I most humbly apologize to them or anyone who might have been offended by that comment.”
Really, this is the demeanor of the lunatic LEFT and their idea of an apology? I guess it all depends of what Hitler, is? You would compare some one to a Nazi propagandist by name, but claim that you did not call them a Nazi. It is really sad what the Democrat party has become. The Moonbats have become the main stream in the party.
The Gateway Pundit states, “Their policies suck. The economy is in shambles. They bet the farm on the Stimulus and it failed. They’ve hit rock bottom.” That pretty much sums it up in a “NUT” shell.
Sand Sculpture of President Obama Washed Away in Charlotte, N.C. … Metaphor? Hmm, Looks More Like Jabba the Hut
Metaphor Alert: Democrats might as well get used to it … Obama sand sculpture washed away.
Talk about creepy. Who actually thought this was a good idea? It’s bad enough this sand Obama makes the presumption of a Mount Rushmore type sculpture, but damn, this creepy thing looks more like Jabba the Hut. Barack Obama is going to have more to worry about than getting washed away by bad weather in NC, losing North Carolina in the 2012 Presidential election for starters.
A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.
Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture, built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out the sand that had washed off the facade of the waist-up rendering of the chief executive.
Unfortunately, as every child who’s spent a day at the beach well knows, sand castles–or cult-of-personality-worthy sand statues–aren’t known for their water resistance. And it rains during the summertime in North Carolina. Sometimes a lot.
Add Senator Claire McCaskill (MO-D) to List of Democrats Not Attending the Democrat National Convention
Hey Democrat politicians, how’s that Obama “hopey-changey” stuff working out for ya these days?
They are calling it a DEMPLOSION, we just call it running with scissors as fast as one can away from Obama …
If you are a Democrat politician in a tough battle in a “swing state” where President Barack Obama is not all that popular, chances are you will not be attending the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, NC. Add Democrat Senator from Missouri Claire McCaskill to the list.
The list of run as far away from Barack Obama has grown to nine. Most likely this number will grow the closer we get to the convention and following the SCOTUS decision on Obamacare if they declare it unconstitutional. As stated at Michelle Malkin, it would appear that the sock drawer re-arranging is taking priority this year for many vulnerable Democrats. Yes it does. It took eight years for many to turn on GWB, Obama has accomplished the same results in less than four.
McCaskill joins a growing list of Democrats who won’t be in Charlotte, including Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, and Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., Mark Critz, D-Pa., Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., Bill Owens, D-N.Y., and Jim Matheson, D-Utah.
Oops, we spoke to soon. I could not even finish the post and another Democrat has decided to run from Obama and the Democrat National Convention. Add Montana’s Democrat Jon Tester to the list as well. As Weasel Zipper opines, “Charlotte now more radioactive than Chernobyl”. Yes it is, politically speaking of course.
Not only are Democrats avoiding the convention, Obama and his reelection minions are ruing the day that they chose North Carolna to have their convention. Through some ‘pie in the sky’ thought process they thought that it would win over voters to take the Tar Heel state, a state that Obama narrowly won in 2008. However, NC has been a fiasco for Obama and pretty much has been taken from the “battleground” category to leans Romney. Presently Romney leads Obama 47% to 44% in the latest Rasmussen poll. Although I tend the think that the race will not be that close.
EXIT QUESTION: Just how many US Reps and Senators will campaign with Obama in 2012?
Let’s start an on-line campaign for Debbie to keep her job as DNC Chair …
Say it isn’t so … Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-D) will not be asked back to be the DNC Chair after the 2012 November elections, win lose or draw. The Shark Tank is reporting that Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be out as DNC Chair. Who would have thunk it, her ever present partisan and polarizing demeanor has turned into more of a liability for the President than an asset. In a 2012 election that is supposed to be determined as to which candidate wins the Independent vote … Debbie is a downer for Obama. The thought was when she was put in the position that Debbie would sure up the Jewish vote, oops, except for that “Jew bag” flap.
According to our source within the Democratic Party, who is also a close associate of Wasserman Schultz, the arrangements have already been made for her to leave DNC regardless if President Obama wins re-election or not.
This same source believes that Wasserman Schultz will be forced to resign behind closed doors and then stage an press event in which she tells Americans that her job as the DNC chair was a temporary one and that she is moving on with her congressional career.
I have to agree with Jammie Wearing Fool. I hope that this report is incorrect and Debbie Wasserman Schultz be named DNC Chairwoman for life. Her smug and arrogant attitude can only be described as a plus for the GOP. Every time that Wasserman Schultz opens her mouth, Democrats lose another 100 votes. Please stay, I beg you. However, I will say this, if she much leave the DNC Chair, I implore Florida voters to send her packing in the 2012 election.
Kaine Says Democrats will Hold House, then Why are They so Worried the GOP Will Take the House of Representatives in 2010 … New York State Set for Possible Democrat Purge
Wouldn’t it be real news if the Chairman of the DNCC admitted that the Democrats would lose?
The top democrat says they will not lose the House. Really? Then why are Democrats struggling in the “bluest” of “blue” states l;ike New York? Tim Kaine, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, went on ABC’s ‘This Week’ and said the following shocking comment … the Democrats would retain the House. WOW, THAT’S NEWS!!!
Kaine told “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour that Democrats would maintain control of the House in the midterm elections nine days from now.
I do, I do. I think it’s going to be close,” he said. “These races are very close, but from this point forward, it’s all about turnout and ground game. And we’re seeing good early voting trends and we’ve got work to do, but we think we can do it.”
So is all the polling wrong, Amanpourasked. Kaine didn’t address that question, but said the wind was at Democrats’ backs.
Does any one think that the head cheerleader of the Democrats is going to admit they are going to lose? I mean seriously folks, these people could not tell the truth about Obamacare, the stimulus or creating jobs. America is just so enamored with Democrat House Speaker as seen by her 29% approval rating. It is only Obama who thinks she is a great Speaker, not the American voters. . Kaine must be drinking the Kool-Aid from the latest Newsweek poll and not all the others that have the GOP ahead in the Congressional generic ballot.
Obvious, most Democrats do not share Kaine’s optimism. Most all Democrats are fearful of losing the House of Representatives in 2010 which can explain why they seem to be running as Republicans and as far away from the policies of Pelosi and Obama as they can.? Maybe it is because like in a Deep Blue state like New York, there are 11 possible seats that could change hands. 11!!! The Republicans just need a pick up of 39 to reclaim the majority. Currently, 27 of the 29 New York House seats are held by Democrats. All that could change in the 2010 midterms and what occurs in NY state could be the political indicator for what happens November 2nd election eve.
The 11 races up for grabs in New York. In a state where 93% of the House seats are held by Democrats, imagine what it means for Democrats to lose 4 or 5 seats in New York state?
1. Hall (D) v. Hayworth (R): In the 19th Congressional District (Westchester, Putnam, Orange), Republican Nan Hayworth, an ophthalmologist, is in a statistical tie with Rep. John Hall in the latest Monmouth University poll. Hall, a movement radical/singer (Orleans) who won in reaction to the Iraq war in 2006, has toed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s line ever since.
However, numerous polls have the Repubpican candidate ahead like the Siena poll that has Hayworth ahead by 3%, while The Hill’s recent battleground polling had the race tied. How has the landscape changed in 2010? The incumbent Democrat Hall won his House election races in 2008 and 2006 by a 59%-41% and51%-49% respectively. Hall now finds himself in a virtual tie withan anti-incumbent Democrat scent in the wind.
2. Bishop v. Altschuler:In the 1st CD (Eastern Suffolk), Rep. Tim Bishop is behind Republican Randy Altschuler42-40 in the latest McLaughlin poll. A defeat of Bishop, a long-term incumbent, would send shock waves through the state’s delegation.
However, a recent Siena poll shows the GOP candidate down big. However, GOP candidate received the politcal endorsement from NJ Governor Chris Christie and has a nice war chest for down the stretch ads. Some recent polls only show the incumbent Democrat up by 2%.
