Dems REALLY screw up: The BIG speech..Clinton's...will be on opposite NFL opener
one man's opinion...

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....

Obama was to have spoken outdoors, replicating his 2008 acceptance speech, to a crammed stadium of 76,000 adoring supporters. This was to have set the stage for the all-but-inevitable election triumph.

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.

HOLY CRAP

....

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.

Clinton has refused to let Obama's people read his speech. Obama and his people hate Clinton and are a little suspicious of him. Obama also likes to try to put people like Clinton in thier place and show them how much bigger he is than them.

That said, Obama has been told that having Clinton stand up for him is the only prayer he's got. So our narcisist ruler is conflicted...

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.

Not a chance. If he gets beat it'll be because he deserves to be beat, not because he "threw it". You're giving the marxist fool too much credit.

...and about that "threat of bad weather"...

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.

http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=35.18004755440415&lon=-80.85241696289063

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.

I'm ready for some football! I was watching a little bit of the Dem Convention last night and by the time they got to the Obamacare speech I dropped f bombs in my living room and shut off the tv, usually don't do that. Then my little 18-year-old liberal leaning brother, who knows everything by the way, started telling me how Obamacare was so great and that gas prices, grocery prices, and unemployment weren't bad. We were about ready for a cage match.

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.

Billy Boy won’t let the DNC vet his speech.

Billy Boy going up against the NFL opener may be the only thing that saves the DNC and Obama.

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.

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.

I hope Rush questions the Amateur Hour nature of all these screwups (the Stadium... the NFL conflict.. "You didn't build that"....) and wonders out loud if the Dem's are not purposely throwing the election.

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. ;)

Okay, Barack, we know you put Bill Clinton up against the Cowboys-Giants back in 2012... 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 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!

What a clever strategy! Invite Bill. Then schedule him opposite the NFL opener.

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.

Clinton has a history of giving long, long ramblings.

IIRC, one of his early Dem convention speeches went something like 80 minutes in length.

Maybe, the NFL can just break the game at half-time, call a rain-delay [surely it will rain somewhere], and postpone it until sometime Thursday after Obama gives his.

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...
