- the great open air acceptance speech has been cancelled due to lack of interest. They can't even find enough unionists to bus in from interstate. Of course, possible inclement weather is the excuse. Look for live crosses to the 75,000 seat empty Bank of America Stadium during Obama's speech - under clear starlit skies.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Not a single raindrop is falling from a nearly cloudless sky in Charlotte, N.C., as President Barack Obama begins delivering his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.
Obama took the stage at Time Warner Cable Arena on Thursday night about an hour after his motorcade whizzed by the empty and dark Bank of America Stadium where he originally had planned to deliver the speech.
- somebody woke up too late that the omission of God and Jerusalem from the Democrat platform might damage the Jewish and Christian vote. Funny thing is, Obama was happy with the script until he became unhappy with it, after the Republicans picked up the gaffe.
- national networks broadcast live the appalling booing and virulent anti-semitism which now permeates the Democratic party. Perhaps America's Jewish community might wake up at last and realise they are being led like lambs to the slaughter by these modern day Nazis.
- another fake celebrity takes the stage. This time a steel worker alleged to have been employed by a Bain Capital controlled company. Turns out he was not employed by the company, he was a union organiser.
