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.
Our goal is to leave North Carolina better than we came in, Psaki added.

Sure about that?
What are they giving away? You know dang well that people are not voluntarily going to see Obama. First all his fans have already saw him in person so why go again. Secondly, the enthusiasm of the Democrats is down due to reelection and also disappointment (first). They are going to spend a ton on this night to make it a success.
Yeah but fill the seats with what?
Must be a small stadium.
Sounds like an SEIU/ACORN operation funded by Obama’s “stimulus” stash.
The Dems were giving away 50 tickets in Altanta earlier this week. For free.
The hubris before the fall is Shakespearean.
I heard it’s Rimshot Joe Biden bobblehead night.
You know how Hollywood movies can make 100 extras look like 10,000 gladiators coming over a hill. We better watch carefully that night and see if they try some trick photography or cardboard cutouts at BofA.
Oh, they’ll bus in enough bums if they have to. The diversity look will do wonders.
LOL! That thing is getting creepier by the hour.
Keepin up with the Jone’s. Movin on up to the east side....
Generally here in Mexico, you can pay people standing in the park $30 for the day to march in a parade, hold up a sign, HEY...HE IS CREATING JOBS, give him credit.
About as substantial as a sand castle — yup. Whose idiotic idea was this.
Bogus. One drop of rain and easily the last 50 rows will be empty...
I bet there’s ads running in the “Help Wanted” section of the local papers down there looking to hire people to attend.
Fact: North Carolina is going for Romney/Ryan big time. Fill the stadium, easy.....just pay the attendees with Obama Stash” cash and free tickets. The DNC is going to bethe freak show of all freak shows!!!
