Dems Forced to Downsize Once Again as Convention Fundraising Falls Short. Ain't that a shame? :D

In January the DNC announcedit would be downsizing its national convention from four days to three. The first day, September 3rd, would instead be used to celebrate the region with a big NASCAR-themed kickoff event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It makes perfect sense given what a huge NASCAR fanthe President is.


Late Monday, the DNC announced another convention downsizing. The big kickoff event would be moved from the Speedway to downtown Charlotte. According to spokeswoman Suzi Emmerling the move was prompted by concern over the logistics of shuttling people 18 miles to and from the track. Logistically it just makes more sense to have the kickoff downtown with the rest of the events.


Of course the Charlotte Motor Speedway hasn't moved since January, so why is this just becoming a problem now? Bloomberg News has the answer. "With a party ban on direct contributions from corporations, the host committee has raised less than $10 million, well short of its $36.6 million goal..." Ouch! Less than ten million is bad. It's also vague. How much less than ten million did they raise?


With Democrats unable to raise even one-third of their fundraising goal, they were forced to cut a few more corners off their already stunted convention. They'll need whatever money is left to outfit the 74,000 seat Carolina Panthers football stadium for Obama's nomination acceptance speech. Hopefully Britney Spears' set designer can come up with another colonnade of Doric columns on the cheap.


Usually any shortfalls in corporate campaign cash are quickly made up for by the Democrats' union friends. In this case, that's not happening because of more poor planning by Democrats. North Carolina is a right-to-work state, so unions "have been reluctant to contribute to the convention because Charlotte lacks unionized hotels and is in a state where compulsory union membership or the payment of dues is prohibited as an employment condition."


But apart from the shortened convention, the last minute change of venue for the big kickoff event, the failure to raise even a third of the necessary funding, and irritating their best donors--other than that--this year's DNC Convention is shaping up to be amazing.

    I pray God will Bless us again but HE knows how far the Country has strayed from His word. Was talking to a Christian Scholar this morning and he believes Obama may win the next election as Obama may be the door in this Country for the tribulation to be fulfilled just as many others are being put in place in other Countries. Israel will be standing alone.

    BEV,
    I personally feel that there is a dark and evil hand in play here. Too many things of supernatural capabilities have taken place, too many people looking the other way, and a cloud , a dark cloud of wickedness, murder, death is falling on America. And our very own people, our trusted government is propagating it. I feel it in my soul, like when I was on active duty and in combat, that feeling crawls up your back and into your neck and you get a chill and feel sick to your stomach. That is what I feel inside. There is a serious evil thats here! EVEN with the lights on its still shadowy and dark.
    know what I mean? Spooky isnt it.

    It is very spooky and very evil. IT is a step by step process to control the people and Obama is an instrument that is being used to accomplish this. I understand completely what you mean about that chilling, sick feeling.

    With so many Democrats jumping ship and the resulting low attendance, event managers didn't want to run the risk of putting 8 or 10 thousand Obamabots onto a grandstand designed to hold 300,000 screaming NASCAR fans. Could you imagine the image comparison between him filling that stadium in Denver in 2008 and the empty speedway where you would be able to hear the crickets cherping over the tens of thousands of EMPTY SEATS?

    It seems like quite a shame when their own party members are ashamed to show up at the event with BO. Our Senator Manchin isn't going and our democratic governor even said he wasn't impressed with BO.

    The DNC has nearly a billion dollars in their election kitty. So there is no shortage of money. Having a convention is a waste since their candidates will not change, nor will their agenda of bankrupt America and screw any international credibility. It is just amazing the how the liberal progressive followers dislike this nation and side with any group committed to our overthrow.

    Ahh, I see the minions are fantasizing again, as their fascist party keep edging closer and closer to the fanatical edge. Don't get to cocky, because you are owned by a few billionaires, and they can dump your asses in a second if they want to. But I hate to burst your bubble, so go back into your fetal position and get into your comfy zone.
