acceptance speech tonight will be coming to you from a 20,000 seat arena, not the 70,000+ stadium it which it was originally scheduled. Why? The ObamaBots say it is because of the weather. Bolshoi. It’s not that Democrats feared being struck by lightning, it’s because they feared the PR disaster of an empty stadium filled with “Obama2012” signs on the seats.

Obama has made a habit of blaming his situation on the weather or natural disasters – tornadoes, tsunamis, wild fires, earthquakes, droughts. Why should this be any different? Wait … forgot to mention headwinds.

In 2008, Obama was received by 80,000 Democrats in Denver. Four years later, his audience will be one-quarter the size. And keep in mind that there are 15,000 members of the ObamaMedia in Charlotte to cover the DNC. Combine them with the 5,000 or so delegates and that just about wraps it up.

Campaign crowds have been smaller this year for Pbama. When the smaller crowds became a news item the campaign quickly covered by saying that this was all on purpose … the campaign was seeking smaller crowds so that the people could have a more intimate experience with Obama. Nobody bothered to ask the campaign why they were putting up all those chairs, and placing placards in the
seats, if they didn’t intend to fill them.
