How would America react if it watched the Obama 2012 acceptance speech in front of empty seats? Daily Mail: “Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor arena and citing ‘severe weather’. The Obama campaign have been working desperately to ensure that the 74,000-seater Bank of America stadium in Charlotte would be filled. Buses for students from across North Carolina and even members of black churches in neighboring South Carolina have been arranged.”
Last May Peter Baker wrote about Omama’s Denver stop (above) in the NY Times: “The crowd was obviously supportive and glad to see him, though the room at times felt a little flat and Potus seemed a little tired after a long day that’s not even close to being over.”
Obama would cringe at the possibility of more pictures similar to those from Denver. About two weeks ago an Obama spokesperson said: “Our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters and the smaller and medium size events are the best venue to accomplish that because the president can closely engage with the crowd.”
Rumor we have is that conservative pundits are to be ignored during the convention. Consider topics to be discussed this week.
