Who Will Be the NEXT Democrat to Bail on Charlotte Convention?
Self | June 26, 2012 | PJ-Comix

Posted on 06/26/2012 10:18:29 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

With the news now that MO Senator Claire McCaskill will probably be skipping the Democrat convention in Charlotte, she is joining other politicos also doing the same including the West Virginia Democrats. This could be the trickle of no-shows that turns into a flood.

Okay, so who do you think will be the NEXT Democrat to bail on Charlotte? My prediction is that Florida Senator Bill Nelson will be the next to announce that he will be too "busy" to show up in Charlotte.

What are your predictions?


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: charlotteconvention; clairemccaskill
The big story might ultimately be that almost NO big name Democrats show up in Charlotte. The 'Rats are jumping from the sinking ship!

Wow, things must really be getting bad if McCaskill is jumping ship. She was one of Obama’s first supporters - she was behaving like a little school girls, peeing in her pants whenever she was around Barry.

Hmmmm... It looks lie this North Carolina Congressman might be bailing on Charlotte since he won't endorse Obama.

“The ‘Rats are jumping from the sinking ship!”
They’ll be back in full force when Biden gets dumped for Hillary. Just my guess no evidence.

I just finished a gig in Charlotte (I travel a lot for my work)

At first, it was next to impossible to line up a hotel reservation for that week- now, my usual places are CALLING ME to see if I want my regular rooms

McCaskill was one of the first to don her obama kneepads. She’s a pathetic excuse for a senator

"Hi! The senators from Missouri, West Virginia, Florida, Alaska, and Ohio just cancelled their reservations and more cancellations are pouring in so we have plenty of vacancies now. Cut rate prices."

I hear that Obama is planning to be on the golf course that day.

Every Democrat Senator up for reelection this year, aside from hardcore left states, will not be there.

Will they be GIVING AWAY tickets just to fill the convention? To do that they need to toss in freebies like free food and refreshments. I would hold out for a free iPad.

Breaking News! DNC Convention is $26 million in debt!

In other news; Robert Reich-h-h-h-h-h-h-sh has been named as treasurer of the DNC convention.

When it is time to pay the bills he will be able to say, "I'd like to help you out, but I seem to be a little short."

Shamelessly paraphrased from Peter Sellers

No, she will not always be there, because wherever she is, she isn’t here.

Ah, so McCain will endorse Obama like he did back in 2008 (”nothing to fear.. blah..blah...”).

Jim Clyburn begs to differ.

But she is the only one that knows where the “passed” Senate budget is.

They’re going to have to literally pay some dems to show up. I’m guessing Bill Clinton won’t show for less than 1 mil. I believe his recent trip to Wisconsin cost them at least a quarter mil.
