Just a vanity here... but the issue of the DNC filling the Panther's Stadium Thursday night has been rattling around my brain for a couple of days... like, what's the big whoop? It occurs to me that the DNC must present an image of the known universe being in support of Obama. But... Why? is it to stroke his image? to quell the doubts of those who voted for him but didn't get their new kitchen? to give a lolly pop to the dismayed? Probably just about anything you can come up with would be a legitimate answer to that question. I'm thinking, its all about validation for Obama supporters... wow, so many what-if's... the biggest being, what if they can't fill the stadium. Hate to be in their shoes... Your thoughts?
Waiting for their Messiah.
When your candidate has no ideas and no solutions all you are left with is image. They have to have the image of the stadium being full. They have nothing else to run on.
Don’t call it Panther stadium. Call it Bank of America stadium. Just to piss off the dims.
They will do as they always do. They will claim full attendance through stadium-filling fraud.
They may not even have that as it is forcast to rain heavily all week.
Plan B was always plan A for them. It will be moved inside and blamed on the weather. They can’t fill that stadium. It would require emptying their war chest to pay people to be there.
The media will help by issuing statements with Obama’s apologies to the tens of thousands supposedly waiting outside and on the way to fill the stadium.
In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t mean much of anything. Most football teams fill their stadiums every home game, and they get a boatload of money for doing so. This idiot’s giving tickets away in bars and is still struggling to fill the Bank of America stadium.
I heard they have reserved seats for Gay, transgendered, union thugs, pedophiles, welfare queens, etc.
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
It seems as though the entire executive branch of the federal government and his entire campaign organization have taken on the traits of a malignant narcissistic. Whether that all comes directly from him or they all just assume what he is and act accordingly I don’t know.
Can’t they work with the NBC and the Chinese IOC to simply fake the images of people being in the stands (like the Beijing Olympics faked the opening ceremony fireworks display)? It’s not like the people who’d actually show up would ever say anything to dispel the illusion...
The will do like the Chinese and Norks do at public events, require all government workers within 150 miles to attend. Problem solved.
Even giving away tickets and busing attendees from afar may not fill that stadium. Even if they do, it will only serve to give them a false sense of security. A large number of those who are unwilling to buy a ticket will also be unwilling to get out and go vote on election day.
These people have a serious enthusiasm problem.
They will do anything to make it appear completely packed. It is part of the psychological game as people want to be part of movements and be popular. They are trying to make their movement appear to be the 'cool kids'. I am even hearing constant bumps on XM Octane and Liquid Metal stations for the convention due to the musical line-up. They are pulling out everything for the 'cool' PR.
It is called Bank of America Stadium, but the Democrats refuse to call it that. So instead we should call it Bailouts of America Stadium.
The MSM will attempt to revive the messiah complex.
I prefer to call it Carolina Black Panthers Stadium.
Thursday’s forecast calls for a high probability of thundershowers. This may end up resembling that Meet John Doe rally in Frank Capra’s classic film.
The image and the marketing.
adored by all
speaking from on high
how many other tyrants did the same thing?
Beck was talking about this just now. Said that there is one thing that the Democraps are good at.....and that’s “image”. He said to watch the media showing and interviewing the most attractive people they can find on the street.
When they were making game scenes for that film “Any Given Sunday” they would have carboard cutouts and tie balloons to the seats for a background ‘crowd’. Some us extras were used for closer up shots, most of them were left on the editing floor.
They did have an event where they got a lot of people to show up, enough to fill up a corner of the stadium by giving away a car and other prizes.
The use of a football stadium projects one of popular support. Isn't attendance of a sporting event a personal decision.
The use of a football stadium encourages over the top enthusiasm for “your” team even if it is playing an “away” game.
Use of a football stadium effectively traps all the attendees inside until the “show” is over.
Use of a football stadium allows your high end supporters a way of attending without having to associated with the common rabble sitting in the “nosebleed” seats.
Use of a football stadium allows the event's “ring masters” to totally control the performances of every act.
Me, I love attending professional football games - the female cheerleaders are GREAT!
“Image” is easy when you completely own the MSM and schools.
Panthers Stadium??? The official name on the Marquee says “Bank of America Stadium”. The Panthers don’t need to bus people in to fill it.
Looked at google maps. Directories for Charlotte. Can’t seem to locate this “Panther” stadium you are talking about.
Are you talking about Bank of America stadium perhaps?
Calling BofA Stadium Panthers Stadium is conceding your point to the Dems before you make it. Don’t use Liberal Euphemisms - choice does not equal abortion. Hate Crime is not suddenly more horrific due to the motivation behind it. And BofA Stadium does not suddenly become Panthers Stadium just because a bunch of liberals are filling it.
Will i need a photo ID to get in ?
The demonRATS are running away from the name of the stadium, Bank of America Stadium, and are calling it Panther Stadium and the media, including FNC is going along with the ruse.
how many did they pay to fill it.
That should be quite a challenge.
And isnt the word “panther” racist...blk panther..wonder what colors Michelle will be wearing
Heh! No kiddin’!
There is no “Panthers Stadium.” It is named “Bank of America Stadium.” The Democrats are trying to rename it during their convention because they don’t want to tie Obama to Bank of America.
We need to be careful not to adopt DemSpeech.
Panther stadium? Are you working off the Dem talking points. The name of the stadium is BANK OF AMERICA STADIUM!!!
Obama will fill the stadium. The Dems have just created a phony standard that signifies nothing. They will trumpet it as a major achievement and point to Obama’s popularity even though it is astroturfed, both the stadium and the crowd.
It will take a lot of free beer and cash to fill that stadium. Both will happen.
I don't think that this Democrat Party instruction to the media was supposed to be published, just obeyed.
Do they mean Black Panther Stadium? What is the name on the outside of the stadium?
Tyrants need full stadiums to project an image of broad acceptance & support to shame possible dissenters from dissenting.
Real leaders win followers on ideas alone.
Tyrant obama is having to bus people in.
Compare that to an event where Sara Palin is speaking.
No busing required.
According to them, it’s the Republicans’ fault they have to fill the stadium. (I know! I’m wearing my shocked face right NOW!)
They say they really don’t care one way or the other but not filling it would give the RNC talking points. Concealing their out-of-control God complex must get to be so exhausting.
Back when the filmed the movie “The Natural” at War Memorial Stadium in Buffalo they used carboard cutouts of people in 1930’s dress for the people in the upper decks.
When they were done filming the movie, they gave these cardbord people away. One of my buddies had a few. They demolished the stadium , known as the rockpile, not long after.
They could do the same thing in Charlotte.
Then he fell very ill, got eaten by worms
In THAT order.
I remember when it was Ericsson Stadium.
