Solid proof Obama is planning a concession speech event for November 6th Election Night
Hillbuzz.org ^ | 10/18/12 | Kevin DuJan

Posted on 10/18/2012 10:24:45 AM PDT by Crimson Elephant

I’ve written before about the fact that Barack Obama was not planning another big Election Night victory party in Grant Park here in Chicago like the spectacle he put on in 2008, because no one I know in the Parks Department or in the event planning community had anything on their radar for Grant Park that night. Because of the permitting and union rules that plague any event in this City (which wouldn’t be waived even for Obama, due to liability and insurance issues the City would face if anything went wrong and permitting was not followed to the “T”) we would have known a few weeks ago if Obama expected another win and was going to celebrate in Chicago again. That massive Grant Park victory rally took a while to plan and involved far too many vendors for anything similar to be replicated this year without people already knowing.

I’ve suspected for some time that Obama was going to plan for a concession speech on November 6th, but last night final confirmation arrived in the form of leaked news that the Obama election night event is being staged in private McCormick Place, not a big public setting like Grant Park.

Very interesting look at the place Obama is going to speak on Election Night. The place he picked is a far cry from 2008. There is an aerial picture of the place and how hard it is to get to...basically only walking, Taxi or car. No trains or buses suitable for a large crowd.

“Solid Proof Obama is planning a CONCESSION SPEECH”

I’ll believe it when I hear it.

Gore never conceded, only whined and threatened GW, after refusing to acknowledge and respect the election result for weeks after election day.

I anticipate Hussein will do all that PLUS chide America for electing the wrong man.

True, but even Gore planned a pretty big outdoor event. Obama isn’t even allowing the possibility for a big celebration.

Boy, do I hope Kevin is correct on this!

Off to Hawaii with the Obozos! Although, that will be a brief interlude while O golfs and body surfs with lifetime Secret Service protection and Michelle redecorates, before O re-appears in the public limelight. Afterwards, I have no doubt he’ll be on TV virtually non-stop second-guessing Romney and campaigning for top spot at the UN, where he can work against the US and on behalf of the New Caliphate full-time.

Hate to be a party pooper but the anti-Christ will rule from the UN and not America. His job is to first eliminate the American challenge to his total global power.

I would still advice the WH staff, those people working at the White House, employed by The People (not the Obamas’ personal staff) to secure any breakables with significant values (both historically and monetary-wise).

Too bad the Obamas still have to return to WH till Jan 2013.

In 1997, legislation became effective limiting Secret Service protection to former Presidents and their spouses for a period of not more than 10 years from the date the former President leaves office--making Bill and Hillary Clinton the last to receive lifetime protection

You may be right about Obama’s post-White House plans. Nevertheless, I am still giddy because Obama may lose this election. Let’s not become so gloomy that we don’t appreciate what would be really great news: removing Obama from the oval office.

Just imagine all the Democrats hanging onto Obi-done's coattails as he plunges over the cliff.

We could easily see a repeat of 2010, with House, Senate, state, and local races go Republican, from coast to coast.

I'm predicting a 59% to 39% popular vote wipeout, with 398 to 140 electoral votes.

The whole country knows this bozo has got to go.

*gentle cough* He conceded the first night. The evil party forced him to recant.

The stupid party let him, and thereby enabling all the post election denigration of the process.

Hawaii realtors on windward Oahu have not seen any real indications that any sort of house shopping, along the lines of the rumors , is going on . Very high level inquiries . They would know . I have to assume this one is baloney . Don’t hold your breathe and thank goodness for us that he ain’t coming here .

Actually this does not give comfort. He does not have to concede. He does not have to leave office. Congress has afforded him total power by passing NDAA and by allowing his EO usurpations to go unchallenged, not that he has issued them but that he has changed laws and made new laws with them and Congress has approved, our TEA PARTY CONGRESS!

Or just a very defensible place. I think he expects to lose, his internal polls are telling him he will lose, and he knows there will be trouble in Chicago when that is made plain to the O-bots.

Take this with a huge grain of salt for 2 reasons. Kevin Dujan is the same guy who ran a story of Obama being gay. 2. I am from Chicago and I actually worked at McCormack Place. It is MASSIVE. Think indoor football stadium size. Plenty of room. Busing people from downtown or Grant Park would not be that big a deal for a city this organized. Just sayin..

PS Hope I’m wrong.

I stand corrected. I still think O will be the most insufferable ex-Prez ever, though. He'll make even Jimmy Carter look patriotic and well-tempered in his remarks. O and Mooch will NEVER shut up.

Let us hope that does not happen. Right now the economy is dead in the water. This month reminds me of Y2K and 911. Very little actual cash is flowing around. Basically due to the uncertainty of the election and of course all those dollars sent into every ones favorite political candidate. We need this election to be over and done with. And a clear winner to emerge with some type of mandate. An Obama comeback that just barely wins, wont get the economy roaring. Just get us back to June/July of 2012 with a boatload more of Marxist stupidity to come. A Romney win with a mandate would let loose the flow of investment and spending. Dragging the country through a month more of uncertainty after the election, could absolutely implode the economy.

I hate to think about it but Obama just could be thinking of an alternate to winning the election. He is big on executive orders and sneaking around the constitution, perhaps that is what the gross amount of ammunition is for, just in case.

I don't think so. If he is roundly defeated, he will go out as the guy who lost the Progressive's hold on the US government.

Bill Clinton is a Democrat hero because he won elections, and beat the Republicans in the impeachment effort, at least from a PR perspective.

But if Obama loses, especially substantially, he will be a pariah and a loser. He'll be marked lousy. I don't see huge speech income in his future.

There was a whole lot of mysterious construction going on at the WH in the last couple of years. Would be interesting to find out what we paid for. I don’t suspect Michelle would take kindly to having to remain underground anywhere. When he loses I think she will be out of there. Will be interesting to see how quickly they move the girls though and whether or not they remain at their private school until the semester break.

But first, we must all double down to make sure that Romney wins.

Exactly. If retail sales are any measure, the entire economy is holding its collective breath, waiting for the morning of November 7th. There is nothing going on except at discount stores and Wal-Mart

Can you imagine the S$$t-fit the Secret Service would throw over a repetition of the last affair?

Putting him out like that is just dangerous.

I think he is going to lose, but I cannot see him doing that for a number of reasons—win or lose.

That’s why it would be so much fun to see a Romney mandate and a Republican Congress. Not from a political win perspective, but because I think the economy would absolutely explode with energy. For the last 12 to 18 months everybody has collectively drawn their resources closer and tighter to their vest in advance of the election. With an Obama win people/businesses will release only what they have to to keep moving. With a Romney win people/businesses will leap forward and the economy will spring back to life within the next 3 or 4 quarters.

I doubt Obama is really *planning* for a concession speech ... because looking that possibility in the eye is far too forthright behavior for His Majesty. However, with that lurking unacknowedged in the back of his mind ... I am guessing they have downsized just in *case* of a defeat ... because a big ol’ park filled with angry Obama fans would certainly be the right place & atmosphere for a riot! Obama & his ilk might possibly want, or at least welcome, riots for political reason, but you can bet your britches he doesn’t want to be caught right in the MIDDLE of one!!!
