Skip to comments.Dems REALLY screw up: The BIG speech..Clinton's...will be on opposite NFL opener
Posted on 09/05/2012 10:50:36 AM PDT by ken5050
Just realized that I haven't seen this mentioned anywheres, which in and of itself is curious. Months ago, the NFL announced that it was moving its annual kickoff extravaganza from Thursday to Wednesday, in order NOT to detract from Obama's big acceptance speech...
Well, well, how times have changed....
Well, they can't fill the stadium, so they've used the threat of bad weather as an excuse to move it indoors.
But as Obama's poll numbers continue to shrink, he was forced to turn to arch-nemesis Clinton to try and save his behind, and nominate him .
The MSM, the talking heads, the chattering classes, and been babbling incessantly about the speech...given the tortured relationship between the two....and that Clinton detests Obama, and that the best chance for Hillary in 2016 will be if Obama loses.
But, BIG OOPSIE..the NFL kicks off tonight..and nobody, repeat nobody, in the audience that Obama wants, hopes, needs, to reach..will be watching...all eyes will be on the NFL opener.
More delicious irony..it's on NBC....so the gang of idiots on MSNBC..will be denied the big platform to spew their venom.
And, oh yeah.. btw,,GO COWBOYS!!!!
I thought the same. I was sure they would have him on Tuesday night to push the most viewers. Bad planning. Clinton’s BS is the only thing that might save this ticket.
Look... actually.... it’s got me starting to wonder.....
.... someone asked in one thread or another, could Obama be throwing the election on purpose because there is going to be severe and bad things happening soon, and the Democrats want no part of it?
I mean, Joe Biden-a-Gaffomatic. “You didn’t build that”. Mess-up after mess-up. And now, something ABSOLUTELY and EASILY avoided — conflicting with the NFL — is also a FAIL.
It’s got me wondering if the thesis has merit.
OMG Bender get in here
Surely these examples cannot be of the same species.
Under normal circumstances, I'd agree that was a possibility, especially in light of rumors about Jihad Jugears and his family planning to move to Hawaii in January. BUT.... we're dealing with one of the most outsized egos we'll ever see. He won't give up power easily... even if he loses.
You sure that wasn’t deliberate. Clinton refused to release what he was going to say.
Ohhhhhhh....I think maybe Clinton planned it that way. :)
Of course, der Schlickmeister isn’t aiming for the main NFL demographic, is he? :)
Charlotte-Thursday Night - A chance of showers and thunderstorms before midnight, then a slight chance of showers between midnight and 1am. Partly cloudy, with a low around 70. Southwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
This is laughable. I go to Pirates games alot and the umpires would never call the game for a forecast like this. There wouldn't even be a delay.
They’re entire convention was a clustercluck.
When we had the DNC as a client, I could not drop a deuce w/o making sure the TP in the bathroom was made in a union shop. We had to remove soft drinks that were not made by union labor. I made a spreadsheet with costs of union vs non union and at the end of the year it was an increase of close to 35%. This is how much they feel they owe to labor.
Whomever decided to place the convention in a non-union state, and non-union facilities should have been fired. Whomever decided it was a great idea to rent a stadium named for one of Obama’s biggest targets, the “banks” should be fired and whomever decided to have the later convention (for momentum) should be fired.
From a meeting organization standpoint, this was from top-to-bottom a total disaster but this is what happens when you have too many balls in the air at once. Trying to keep too many people happy and none of them are.
Anyway, I think the majority of the American tv audience will tune in for the NFL, football is just that hot right now. Bill Clinton is sooooooooooooooo 1992, this convention has been a disaster first BOA stadium and now putting one of their key speakers against a football game, bunch of friggin idiots.
The ratings will be abysmal...
Those are about as real as the Obama personal narrative...
Hey, but they’re the smartest people EVAH!
I’d watch the NFL kick off tonight even if it had the Raiders and the Jaguars playing....
heh heh...standing by for flames...heh heh
What! you would choose to watch the Cowboy’s over your old neighbor? LOL
I was totally with you until the last line.
Rush FREEPS..he’s just mentioning this..LOL
Billy Boy won’t let the DNC vet his speech.
They don’t know what he’s going to say.
Billy Boy going up against the NFL opener may be the only thing that saves the DNC and Obama.
As Todd Starnes said, “20% chance of rain, 80% no shows”
It's a possibility. Hold off the Global Financial Meltdown until Romney takes office, and set the stage for a Dem comeback.
The 2008 financial meltdown's timing was very convenient for Obama.
Just tuned in, Rush is discussing it now. You knew he would! :)
He’s reporting the weather forecast for Charlotte has been downgraded to 20% chance of rain for tomorrow night! LOL!
Yep. Obama has been spending millions with Clinton ads on ESPN. Those ESPN viewers will be watching the game tonight. Major fubar on the dims part.
You, however can console yourself with Giants' successes..unlike my pitiful Jets...and a season of Sanchez/Tebow ad nauseum...
The move with the stadium. The conflict with the NFL. All of this could EASILY be/have been avoided. This is Amateur Hour stuff. I'm starting... just starting... to believe the thesis has genuine merit.
Oh, I’m not a Giants fan (unless they’re playing New England, Baltimore, or the like)... just not a Cowboys fan. (I am, however, a Cowboys Cheerleaders fan!)
He could even ask the question, if something so big and so nasty is coming in the next few years, that the Dems want no part of it. ;)
The New New York Giants are playing the New New York Jets tonight so Bill... should get the bigger ratings.
Yeah, the Cowboys beat the Giants back in 2012... and they got 5 times the ratings of my speech!
Rats! I never get any... big effing deals anymore!
Who are the Giants playing?! Reread your post. Haha!
I’ll watch paint dry before a democratic convention trying to get Odinga re-elected!....ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?
Laz....Said it a long time ago....he doesn’t want a second term...and Michelle hates being neat and clean, cooking, taking care of her kids cuz that’s what her mamma is for...
Heard Slick’s speech is scheduled same time as Halftime (12 minutes) but doubtful it’ll be enough time for Clinton to finish!
You didn't read... " but it is 3012, who are you going to put him up against this time?
"The New New York Giants are playing the New New York Jets tonight [in 3012 BOR-Duce!] so Bill... should get the bigger ratings."
So, who misread... what?
Rush mentioned it several weeks ago and it was mentioned on Fox a few weeks ago also.
Surely, the drop in viewers on Wednesday night will make the quite ordinary number of viewers on Thursday night seem tremendous!!!
Then, there's that thing about the loudness of the speakers in the arena being used, giving a viewing audience a perception of great enthusiasm and noise (as compared to the volume at the RNC last week). By moving Thursday's hoopla into the smaller facility, that faux "enthusiasm" is amplified, whereas, in the football stadium, it risked being diminished.
Depends if Monica is there with the humidor...
"Finish"?? Willie needs twelve minutes just to get through his introduction!
"Thank you! Thank you! Ain't Ah great? Ah feel your excitement! Thank you! No, really, you may be seated! Oh, what the heck, keep clapping if you want to! Yes, thank you! Thank YOU! Ah know, Ah know. . . .
"Now Ah think Ah know a little something about prosperity! Ah created all the jobs that exist, millions and millions of them! Yes, thank you! No, on second thought, don't thank YOU, thank ME!! Don't you wish Ah was still President, instead of--well, don't you wish Ah was still President? Really! . . ."
Opposite a rivalry game, no less! Half of the viewers would like to be rooting for both of us to lose!
I saw that, but why did you put that it is 1000 years in the future? I must admit, your style of posting is a tad... disjointed for my taste.
It’s Clinton’s chance to be a real Patriot and say he’s voting for Romney. I don’t think he will, but oh it would be so much fun if that happened.
Sounds like my younger brother. He voted for Obama when he was 18. He keeps saying lately that both sides are bad and there is no point in voting. I think he is just annoyed that Obama did not legalize pot. I am pretty sure he is still a liberal head case, by other comments that he makes. Is there a big difference in your age with your brother? I was 11 when my brother was born. Been in plenty of cage matches since he as hit puberty. LOL!!!
I said some time ago that I didn't think Palin would run because she is too smart to win an election and inherit the disaster that Obozo has created/helped along.
The only thing about 'throwing' the election is I just don't see it in Obozo's DNA to lose at anything...
NFL game was moved from Thursday to Wednesday because the Messiah will be speaking on Thursday.
OH Bender you are bad so true I think safe to say those teams in 3012 get better ratings than Bill Clinton speech
I am going watch the NFL game I dvr my new gulity pleasure
Here come Honey Boo Boo LOL!
OHH I am Raider fan LOL!
