Downsizing..

"BofA Vault: a cozy place on a rainy evening."
Seems like Obama and his traveling minstrel show are taking a hike to a more intimate site:
After this morning’s news that the Democrats are now planning to move Obama’s convention speech from the outdoor, 70,000-capacity Bank of America football stadium to the indoor, 20,000-capacity Time Warner basketball arena because of ostensible weather concerns (meaning, the 30 percent chance of thunderstorms on the forecast practically every night in the summer for the mid-eastern seaboard), there’s been no shortage of mockery from the Right for the Democrats’ retreat from much-heralded enthusiasm to defensive sheepishness.
You gotta love this, doncha? Cutting back by more than two-thirds (from 74,000 to 22,000) because of some isolated t-storms-- with the porbablbilty dropping to almost zero-point-zero by the time Obama hits the stage at 1000L PDT.

As I said in a previous post, this would turn out to be a monumental embarrassment for them if they stayed. either there would be phalanx after phalanx of empty chairs (now a painful reference to this campaign thanks to Clint's performance art at the Tampa RNC) or the Berlin Airlift-like logistics -- like carting in all of the Sterno bums on the Eastern seaboard -- would provide delicious commentary for the right-wing blogosphere.

But now, like the Obama Regime's spending, it seems they have outdone themselves by throwing in the towel and takin' it to off the streets. Also, the flimsy rain excuse is getting some embarrassing exposure as well. Seems that the head weather guesser at a local Charlotte TV station is calling B.S.:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The chief meteorologist at a Charlotte television station is questioning the decision by Democrats to move President Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention to a smaller venue because of the weather.

“Thursday night will likely be the best weather of the entire week,” Brad Panovich of WCNC-NBC TV wrote on Twitter in reference to when Obama’s speech was planned to take place at the outside Bank of America stadium, which can accommodate 70,000 people.

The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday announced that the weather is forcing them to relocate Obama’s speech to the Time Warner Cable Arena, which is inside and holds a far fewer 22,000 people.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday morning after the news broke, Panovich said there’s only a 20 to 30 percent chance of rain or storms and argued that “if you are going to move inside for this small risk you could have done that days ago.”

Said Panovich: “My main point is if you were going to move inside for the small weather threat Thursday, you could have made that decision a week ago.”

“It’s a simple question.. if you had a (Charlotte) Panthers game, Concert or Soccer match with a 20% chance of storms would you cancel 24 hours prior?” he asked.

In a stuttering clusterfark of a miserable convention fraught with questionable left-wing histrionics and a frankly scary socialist theme fit only for a SCOAMF POTUS, you'd think these clowns would tire of manufacturing questionable metaphors. But it's kinda funny how RAIN could well be one of the significant symbols used to define this Freak Show. It ends up with The Pantload's speech downsizing his acceptance speech venue because of rain" after it began some four days ago with his sand castle being rained upon.

Heaven help them if they pull off another OIHO STATE Schottmeister Field House fiasco like the did when they "opened" the campaign in May.

I'll just leave you with a little traveling music.

Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid: my favorite line, mentioned many times throughout the movie as they simply couldn't shake the Pinkerton agency guys who were closing in on them: 'who are those guys?'

Obama may have the same thoughts about the Tea Party....
