CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (PNN) - September 4, 2012 - Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of illegitimate 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” as the reason.
The Obama campaign has 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. It seems there is some doubt as to Obama’s ability to fill the stadium.
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.
Now, it looks like the weather has come to the illegitimate president's rescue.
As officials prepare to open the Democrat National Convention this afternoon, there are strong indications that the speech will be moved to Time Warner Cable Arena, which has a capacity of just over 20,000.
Citing possible weather problems, another official said that the use of the stadium was being reviewed “on an ongoing basis and we’ll keep you informed on any decision”.
“It looks like a done deal to me,” said an unnamed convention worker. “The decision’s apparently been taken and it’s just a matter of spinning it as being forced on us by the weather.”
The current Weather Underground forecast for Charlotte on Thursday is: “Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. High of 93F with a heat index of 99F. Winds from the SW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30%.”
Convention delegates, party volunteers and Democrat officials gathered in Charlotte would make up about one-third of a crowd in the Bank of America stadium, which officials have said would seat 65,000 people.
In 2008, when Obama fever was at its height, the then Fascist Police States of Amerika Senator had no trouble filling an 84,000-seat outside stadium in Denver, Colorado. But voter enthusiasm has waned since then, due to the illegitimate president’s dictatorial and un-Amerikan policies.
Approximately 13,000 people were at Obama's rally at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado on Sunday.
