CHARLOTTE, N.C. – College students from across North Carolina will arrive in Charlotte by the busload. Same with members of predominantly black churches in neighboring South Carolina.

Their goal: help fill a 74,000-seat outdoor stadium to capacity when President Obama accepts the Democratic nomination Thursday night.

Anything short of a full house on the final night of the Democratic Party's national convention will be instant fodder for Republicans eager to use empty seats as symbols of waning voter enthusiasm for Obama.

Typical lib-dem image-strategy antics, to fill-up a largely-deserted stadium, which no one with a functioning brain, wants to attend. Anything to make ∅bummer look good. Oooops, "functioning brain"? Heck, that omits 96-98% of the circlefest attendees.

Why not load up all the welfare recipients? That ought to fill the stadium to overflowing. It may not be a very diverse crowd, but at night, it may work.

The campaign says the size of Obama's events this summer have purposely been kept low. Large rallies are more expensive and security requirements are more intense for a sitting president than a candidate.

BS .... he's been going to colleges and areas where the crowds are predominantly black to get decent crowds for the camera. As for Charlotte, I would like nothing better than to see a stadium full of RATS huddled under their rain gear in a downpour, while The Won, who thinks he can slow the rise of the oceans, gets his butt whipped by Mother Nature.

What about the damage to the environment caused by all the unnecessary buses?

Be sure the black churches get the information on how the federal laws will be changed making it mandatory to perform homosexual marriages in their churches. (Barack will have more flexibility after the election!)
