DNC readies 'contingency plan,' watches weather for Obama acceptance speech
Posted by CNN Political Reporter Shannon Travis
2 days ago

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Democratic National Convention officials have been anxiously watching the weather for next week when President Obama will deliver his convention speech from an outdoor stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, a convention official told CNN. Another source said officials have readied a "contingency plan" which would be announced "closer to the convention" should extreme weather strike.

**SNIP**

When asked to outline what options that plan might include, the source said, "We will only announce contingency plans in the event that an emergency/severe weather actually arises, so that we can be sure that we communicate only one plan, the one that is accurate and relevant to the situation at hand."

There’s a thread somewhere about 15K (actual) rats being done in by Isaac.

Democrats were annoyed when Issac “spared” Tampa. Now, a little drizzle in Charlotte? Greatest tragedy! Like, Ever!

The contingency plan isn't for the rain, it's to provide cover for Obama when the stadium is half empty for his speech.

Why does this jackass have to have this outside at a football stadium anyway? As if he’s such a rockstar and so in demand they needed a stadium. He should just give his damn speech in the convention hall like the rest of the speakers next week.

My thoughts also. Bank of America, er, Panther Stadium holds 73,778 for football. Even if they loose a few thousand seats for the DNC it will be difficult to get that many people.

Exactly. They will have to pass out money on the 50 yard line to get anyone into that Stadium.

Ellen Barkin, Clay Aiken, and Samuel Jackson are wondering “What happened?”

They cast their spells of hate at the GOP convention. God must have a “funny” sense of humor.

The Charlotte area can get some real humdinger rainstorms in August, and it’s looking like that might extend into early September this year. I grew up there and if they had asked me, I could have told them that. But then again, I might not have.

Maybe the size of honey dew melons? My first thought was for an even larger fruit that is green outside and red inside, but that might have been interpreted as racist code talk.

They will move it inside when they discover they can’t fill the stadium and then blame it on the weather.
