Obama campaign says it will fill football stadium for convention’s finale

Team Obama promises it will fill every one of the seats in Charlotte’s mammoth football stadium Thursday night when President Obama closes the Democratic National Convention with a speech accepting his party’s nomination.

For weeks, Democrats have been concerned about filling Bank of America Stadium, home to the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. They feared a devastating image of an enthusiasm gap if Obama spoke to empty upper decks at the venue.

But the Obama campaign says it’s got it covered, and that all 73,778 of the stadium’s seats will be spoken for. The campaign also insists this success will showcase a ground operation that will help Obama win North Carolina for a second cycle in a row this November.

According to Weather Underground there is a 50% chance of rain on Thursday.

Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
– Proverbs 16:18

    maybe the rain will wash away the rest of the sand man and the empty chair.
    It seems like it is going to be 3 days of ugly and the rain will be needed to clean it up

    I do hope they will be singing this on Thursday

    “Team Obama promises it will fill every one of the seats in Charlotte’s mammoth football stadium…”

    Must be part of his job creation plan. I guess he plans to pay people to fill those seats.

    • HELENK says:

      that and free tickets at the local bars. but he would have to have a 100 mile radius to get enough people to go

        Free beer in Charlotte! Pass it on!

        I seem to have gotten myself banned at Cannonfire. 😉

          That’s like getting kicked out of a mental hospital.

          I like Joseph. I identify with other cranky old cusses.

          I’m not sure which post actually did it – the one where I pointed out that Staples (while still an absurdly low wage employer) pays more to its retail employees than either of its major competitors and (unlike them) offers benefits to all its employees (even part-timers) and their same-sex domestic partners, or the one where I referred to Obama as “swine”.

          What do you think?

    5 landmines for the democratic convention

    What amuses me is that I can never get any off the ex-PUMA Obot converts to answer one simple question:

    What has he done that merits re-election?

    • cj says:

      That’s a very good question. If anything, the actual Obama is much worse than the smoke & mirrors one of 08.

      I’d like to know why they think it’s so horrible to vote for Romney in ’12 if they were willing to vote for McCain 4 yrs ago. It seems like both were cast out of the same GOP mold to me.

      Gingrich & Santorum are one thing, but Romney?

      • propertius says:

        Romney’s rich. Rich is EEEEEVILLLL, unless your last name is Pelosi, Harman, Kerry, Polis, or Kennedy. Then it’s okay.

  8. LOL I just saw on the weather channel that Isaac has curled around and is now parked over the Carolinas- and may hang out for a bit. Now wouldn’t that be funny? Went by Tampa but dumps on the DNC

    I am not sure about this article, but the sad thing is it would not surprise me. I never thought this way before backtrack and his bunch

    I communicated with a few rational & logical yet loyal democrats (yep, they do exist). They are worried. They find both Romney and Ryan as credible candidates. On a national level, they pointed out that Brown is still maintaning a slight lead over Warren (a prog supestar), and that McMahon has got a slim lead over her democratic opponent in freakin Connecticut. They worry that the R/R ticket would have powerful coattails that would pull the repubs over the finishing line in close contests.

    • elliesmom says:

      I get to see all of the Brown and Warren commercials. To my very Democratic husband, Warren is coming off as a scolding professor delivering lectures.She almost always faces directly into the camera. In almost all, she talks about the “you didn’t build that” stuff and about student debt and how unfair it is to burden our young people with school loans. People who are making commercials about her focus on her role in the consumer protection agency. Brown has a series of old time Democrats from the state doing endorsements for him, and a “Scott Brown from the Road” series. He’s in his infamous truck, in his shirt sleeves traveling around the state talking, but mostly listening, to interest groups like veterans and fishermen who have been hurt by regulations on their catch.The Democrats endorsing him never mention Warren directly, but they suggest that Brown is about as bipartisan a senator as there is, and that we need more like him, not fewer. I don’t know which will be the more successful come November. But Brown’s spots are more pleasant to watch.

      • DandyTiger says:

        Warren didn’t run for the Senate. Someone else did that for her.

        • elliesmom says:

          When she talks about student loan debt, all I can think about is how much she makes for teaching a couple of hours a week. If she was paid what I made as a public school teacher who taught twice as many students as she does five days a week, we could charge the kids a lot less for tuition.

    • SWPAnnA says:

      That’s what the fauxgressives don’t get about endorsing candidates who can both win and help fellow dems. The only one whose re-election matters is the OAF, but for Chrissakes, how many Dems who went down in ’09 and ’10 are feeling no love for the way Pelosi forced them to vote for Obamacare to preserve the presidency? If he’s the only Democrat left in office, he’ll really be whining about how the R’s are stalemating him. The Chicago Crew is so insulated and full of themselves it doesn’t even occur to them that in SOME places, politicians actually LISTEN to their Constituents. After 3 years of dissing Fox News by name, they finally pull their heads out and discover that’s where the ratings are.

    we can only hope and Vote early and often. 🙂 :mrgreen:

    While the national spectacle is going on, the Center for American Progress is sneaking out the real intent of ObamaCare which is rationing. Who chooses who gets what? Why the Progressives of course. How will they do it? By imposing a budget on states and PRIVATE insurers. Anything that involves Tom Dascle is straight from Satan and the AP who wrote this crap up for the WH.

  14. DandyTiger says:

    I’m confused, will the new and improved styrofoam greek column speech be at Bank of America Stadium or the New Black Panther Stadium. I know the former is official, but the Dems keep calling it the latter. At least I think that’s what they keep saying.
