Dems bring in crowds by the busload to fill stadium for Obama speech.

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.

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!)

I think the rats have contingency plans in case of rain.

Heck, they could use one of the vacant car dealership showrooms that still languish in Charlotte 3 years after the auto bailout.

It wouldn't surprise me if it were.

You're right, maybe they can put in a nice clean high speed rail, or deliver them in Volts.

Look, just the plain fact that Obama has to bus in college kids and Black churchgoers shows how sad and pathetic he is. Charlotte, North Carolina has over 800.000 residents and probably 1.5 million in the metro area. That America/hater/destroyer, POTUS Obama and his ‘dirt bag” Democrats cannot fill the venues with supporters who will gladly and willingly attend their campaign rallies, with folks rounded up like sheep & cattle is the proof in the pudding that Obama and his disgusting, anti-America ilk are toast, come November 6, 2012!!! Sad!!! Sad for fooled college kids and even worse for Black Americans of all stripes. And....they call themselves Christians!!! This DNC is a Freak Show galore!!!

This is easy for the dim-witted DIMs...fill the stadium with the local unemployed. They don’t have anything else to do. Or fill it with nobama’s extended family which is replete with shiftless grifters and degenerates.

There will probably be more busses than Nagin had parked when Katrina hit New Orleans. I hope Fox shows some pictures of all the Obama busses. Hope springs eternal.

If that stadium were infiltrated with Obama hecklers, a very inconvenient riot on national television would occur.

I hope you are one of the folks on this site who likes to crow about not being a Republican or a Tea Partier. That kind of comment has no place among decent human beings.

It’s interesting how for Democrats, filling a stadium or making a rally look impressive is strictly a matter of logistics. It’s just a given that the zombies will be available. They’re like inert matter, ready to be scooped up. The challenge is strictly in figuring out how to get them bused in. But for Republicans it’s much more a matter of persuasion. They have to inspire a bunch of small business owners and family people to put down what they’re doing and head out to the rally. They can’t just scoop up their constituency the way the Dems can just scoop up a bunch of college students or black church congregants or union guys.

When you are desperate and have to fill buses with whomever, the likelihood that there will be some of those will go up immensely.

Occupy kids, conservatives, anarchists, Howard Stern listeners? Chance of rain to boot??

Oh man, I almost want to watch!
