The DNC is going to bethe freak show of all freak shows!!!

"To its committed members ( the democratic party) was still the party of heart, humanity, and justice, but to those removed a few paces it looked like Captain Hooks crew -- ambulance chasing lawyers, rapacious public policy grants persons, civil rights gamesmen, ditzy brained movie stars, fat assed civil servant desk squatters, recovering alcoholics, recovering wife beaters, recovering child-buggers, and so forth and so on, a grotesque line up of ill mannered, self pitying, caterwauling freeloaders banging their tin cups on the pavement demanding handouts".

Any event that features any POTUS/VPOTUS/FLOTUS is a royal pain. SS insists each person requesting a ticket submit his/her SS# for a quick check; then they issue a ticket so you can stand in line for two hours before getting through security so you can wait another 2 hours for the ‘star’ to appear. Then it’s an hour or so to empty out of the stadium and get to your car. Takes a LOT of enthusiasm to go thru all that.

You know what would be cool is if about 20,000 patriots got tickets, went to the speech, and just sat on their hands. Adding that to the luke-warm enthusiasm of his base right now might produce some enlightening audience non-response.

Oh dear. We need to be worried when we see large guillotines and booths set up for receiving a “vetting mark” near the arenas. I hope nobody spots smoke coming from the Obama statue’s azz.

Two weeks ago convention organizers began making tickets available for the acceptance speech at the stadium.

Team Obama’s “9-3-1” program, which provides supporters with one ticket to the acceptance speech after they volunteer for nine hours over three shifts, an effort the campaign says will expand its grassroots, will also help fill empty seats.

In my show-biz days, one of our ongoing concerns was finding studio audiences for TV shows. Tickets for the highly rated shows were usually in demand, but for a lot of the other ones, you’d give away anywhere from 5 to 20 tickets in order to get one butt in a seat. The art form was finding the right ratio. At the major awards shows, we “dressed” the audience by having extras in formalwear filling the empty seats in the front rows. I wonder how they’re planning to “dress” the audience to cover the no shows for his speech?

Only question is, what are they going to fill it with?

Illegal aliens? Urine? Dead bodies from the Clinton years? Members of Democrat sympathizing Leftist groups that are affiliated with terrorist networks around the world?

I could go on, but why bother...

I think this will be the most expensive speech ever given. Total cost will be over 75 million dollars, a coronation of useless drivel.

Had an Obama zombie cheering him on, claiming a Democrat congress and reelecting Obama would change everything. ‘What, we have to reelect him to find out what he’d do?’ I asked, and they immediately agreed.

‘That worked out so well with Nancy Pelosi’s health care bill. Pass it to find out what’s inside. Half of Obama’s administration has been with a fully democrat congress - his first two years were so sterling - trillions in wasteful spending, seizing private businesses, etc.. I can only imagine how much more damage he could have done had the people said ‘ENOUGH’ and kicked the Democrats out of Congress.’

‘Well, if Republicans would only...’

‘Would only do what? The people said ‘NO MORE.’ They kicked out Democrats in droves. What? Are you saying, AGAIN, that people are just too stupid to know what’s good for them? Yeah, that’s a strategy that ought to work out well. ‘’Vote for Obama, you stupid jerks.’’ Can’t wait to see those ads..’

‘But if Congress would only...’

‘Only stop doing what the people want? Maybe it might be better if the President started doing what the people wanted.’

They stomped off at this point.

I live in Georgia. It’s a great State. Beaches, mountains, big cities (well city), swamps, quaint small towns, ancient Indian mounds, great colleges, hospitals, and an exceptional record on racial matters. For example, I think we were one of few States that did not have riots when Dr. King died. And, Atlanta was his home base.
Not to say we don’t have our problems. Some places you just do not go.
My real point is that I am always amazed when I see projected Electoral College maps that put Georgia in a toss-up or contested State for the election. I see it fairly often. It’s not depicted as purple, but is a lighter shade than Alabama, for instance.
However...
There is no way, absolutely no way, that Georgia will go for zer0.
I doubt that North Carolina will make the same mistake this go round. But Georgia did not go for zer0 last time, and it won’t do it this time.
Just wanted to stand up for my beloved sovereign State (represented by the fourth star on the US Flag), which like all other States ceded limited powers to the gluttonous federal government.
Let’s take back our States!

Democratic National Convention 2012 tickets (Charlotte, Nc)
Date: 2012-09-01, 5:28PM EDT

I have tickets to the DNC 2012 on September 6th, the night President Obama will be accepting the nomination for Democratic Presidential Candidate, but I can’t go because of work. The tickets are free, but I would like to be reimbursed for the two days of missed work and the 7 1/2 hours that I stood in line for them. If seeing the President isn’t enough, there is a list of other performers that will also be present that night. I also contacted the local Campaign office to make sure that if I gave the tickets to someone else that they could still be used and was told YES.

(”This roster of performances only adds to the excitement building in Charlotte for the historic week ahead of us,” said 2012 Democratic National Convention Chair Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “The tens of thousands who will attend Convention events in person, and all those tuning in across the country, should be ready for quite a show.”

The schedule of performances at the 2012 Democratic National Convention:

Thursday, September 6 (Bank of America Stadium)
Foo Fighters
Mary J. Blige
Earth, Wind and Fire
James Taylor
Delta Rae
Inspire the Fire
Marc Anthony (national anthem))

Location: Charlotte, Nc
it’s NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

I saw the same 50,000 total figure. The seating for the Forum is listed as 13000 to 19000 depending on configuration. Thinking about tradition pre-Obama, wasn’t it customary for a Presidential candidate to make his acceptance speech at the same place where the convention is held?

The location that was good enough for the delegates wasn’t grand enough for “the one”, I guess.

Obama used to sneeze and get crowds of 75,000+ in a flash.

Now they have to pull teeth to get people to come and place a “weather” contingency plan.
