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.

They’ll be bussing them in from Chicago to Miami to New York and Boston to do it.
They could bus in inmates from all federal prisons on the east coast.
I hope at least one freeper with a phone cam gets in to take pictues of the empty seats that the MSM won’t show.
Too funny...in the replies a commenter suggests that he will pay attendees and count it as a “job created”.
They're full of something alright!
Unfortunately they forgot to put it correctly in this article.
they’re dropping free tickets from helicopters and tossing them out in front of welfare offices, bus stations and abortion clinics in a three state radius.
They’ll fill it up or force the owners to close sections of it (behind the camera) down..
You...gotta...be...kiddin’...me! LOL! He’s even got his Pepsodent smile working. The libtards love it.
Gee, it looks like his base is crumbling there.
Spoken for and filled are entirely two different things.
Wonder if they will pipe in fake applause overt the sound system.
“crumbling base” LOL
I think we are all getting giddy — but, ain’t it fun for a change.
Weve gotta have a great show, with a million laughs... and color... and a lot of lights to make it sparkle. And songs - wonderful songs. And after we get the people in that hall, weve gotta start em in laughing right away. Oh, cant you just see it... ?
Judy Garland, Babes In Arms, 1939.
In his first campaign he’d hire a band for a free concert to fill a venue, then walk out on the recently-emptied stage for his rally. I think if he did that plus had sixty busses of SIEU/ACORN/Teamsters he could pull it off, or the State-Run Media would make it look like he did.
Filling the seats with blow up dolls doesnt count.
