Team Obama promises it will fill every one of the seats in Charlottes mammoth football stadium Thursday night when President Obama closes the Democratic National Convention with a speech accepting his partys nomination.
For weeks, Democrats have been concerned about filling Bank of America Stadium, home to the NFLs Carolina Panthers. They feared a devastating image of an enthusiasm gap if Obama spoke to empty upper decks at the venue.
But the Obama campaign says its got it covered, and that all 73,778 of the stadiums seats will be spoken for. The campaign also insists this success will showcase a ground operation that will help Obama win North Carolina for a second cycle in a row this November.
Were confident well be full, Jen Psaki, the traveling Obama press secretary, told The Hill late last week. We have a great ground operation in North Carolina and weve registered more voters than any other state.

I wonder how many UNIONS will bus in their membership? You can guarantee that many attendee’s will be thugs. I expect a lot of purple and gold shirts in the stadium.
Well, of course they will.
When it comes to elections and demonstrations/rallies they’re experts at busing in people from all over.
Fill it with what?
Heck, POSOTUS could probably fill 10 football stadiums and Bill Clinton (Rapist-In-Chief) could probably fill 20 “touch” football stadiums with women. There is no shortage of useful idiots in these “United” States.
Just because they have given out that many tickets doesn’t mean squat. There will be LOTS of empty seats, but the media won’t show them. That is how they “have it covered”.
They’ve registered more voters there than in any other state? Well, isn’t that SPECIAL? IIRC, there are PLENTY of illegals roaming around NC/s;)
How much are they paying?
Of course they will. Ever seen a sign that said “Free Beer!!!”. Never fails.
Someone is getting paid or free dinner...I wish we could interview the people who attend and I can guarantee you they are getting paid.
Hello my baby, hello my honey...
I guess they’ll be handing out a Chick Fil A sandwich to everyone who attends. That will fill the seats.
BTW - I thought they weren’t going to call Bank of America Stadium, Bank of America Stadium when Obama shows up.
With empty chairs of solidarity :)
You can't make this stuff up.
There’s a 50 per cent chance of storms in Charlotte Thursday night.
Maybe Barry0 can do the Greek thing again, only this time with Zeus’ lightning bolts and a lovely downpour. I hear that part of the country still needs rain.
BS, for sure.
He probably threatened to cut of their food stamps for a month if they did not show up.
They're making the cardboard cutouts as I write.
Reckon the Cherokee have a rain dance of good utility?
Nah. The seats will all be filled with stuffed Pedo-bears. Each attendee will get one to give to their children and the rest of the seats...
Wave after wave of Pedo-bears! The new emblem of the party!
Is it an outdoor stadium? If so, I’ll pray for a hard, hard rain.
There’s a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms all this week here in the Charlotte area. I too am praying for a gullywasher to really hammer the place for a couple hours before his speech is about to start. Then let up for about 30-45 minutes to entice the true believers into their seats but leave the stadium half-empty...then unload again right as his speech starts.
The media will have been thoroughly briefed on using no camera angles that show empty seats. Nothing, absolutely nothing, coming from the MSM can be believed.
I have no doubt that obama will fill that stadium. And then he will brag about all the new jobs he just created.
How much do you suppose it’s gonna cost him to bribe enough people to fill that stadium anyway?
Well, exactly. The joke is that, at a union rally, show them the beer and they will just follow it on to the bus. Pretty simple.
(WHEN YOU SEE THIS SIGNAL, DO NOT VOTE FOR ME!)
Losing confidence? Getting nervous? Has the hypnotic trance worn off and you can't make it work again?
Don't fear! The unions WILL get 'er done! With all the money you funneled to them, they will come through.
Well, they already made plans to round up all the homeless for the convention, I guess if they hose them off and nuke them with deodorant they can use them to fill the top bleachers. Especially if they park beer and pot up there first.
giving new meaning to “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses ....”
giving new meaning to Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses ....
Or muddled asses, in this case...
Breaking!!!!...early pics of the Obama delegates/supporters arriving for early seating. By all indications Obama will blow the capacity crowd away...
Note: none of the supporters were available for comment.
I have no doubt that the Dems will move heaven and earth to make it happen. It is a phony test that is just a PR stunt to prove Obama is as popular as ever and that he still has the magic of 2008. It really is irrelevant, but the MSM and the Dems will make a big deal out of it to fool the public. It is a Potemkin village approach to politics that Obama likes to engage in. We can all recall the manufactured crowds in Berlin or the Greek columns in Chicago. The guy is a fraud and poseur. His love of mass adoration is similar to other megalomaniacs, e.g., Hitler, Castro, Mussolini,
Of course they will fill it.....after they pay a crap load of Occupy idiots to attend..... =.=
Hitler did something similar in Nuremberg.
Maybe God will join in with a lightning strike or two... right in front of TOTUS.
Maybe they can bring in prisoners from the Angola Prison in Louisiana. They are used to picking up garbage after disasters.
Pray for beautiful weather, empty seats, and no excuses for the MSM
If you remember, the 2008 backdrop for the Democratic convention was designed after ancient Pergamum.
The standard Rent-a-Mob.
I wonder how much that is going to cost us.
I like the way you think.
How many bottles of booze and cartons of cigs will the DNC have to buy?
I have the michigan frog song as a ringtone.
I recommend that the RNC Secret Agent club make copies of the letters that the DNC has been sending out about this event being held at the Panther Stadium. Add to this a convenient map to Franklin, NC where the real Panther Stadium exists.
The stadium in Charlotte, NC is the Bank of America Stadium WHERE the Carolina Panthers play their home games. Thus the DNC starts their final run to the Presidency with a LIE! What a surprise!
