Climate Change Saves Obama From Humiliation In Charlotte

Democratic officials confirm to POLITICO that President Obama’s prime time address will be moved indoors to the Time Warner Center.

The Thursday address was scheduled to be at Bank of America stadium — an outdoor venue with more than 70,000 seats. But forecasts are predicting thunderstorms, forcing a last minute change in venue.

The move has an upside for the campaign, which has reportedly struggled to fill all the seats in the massive outdoor arena.

    Maybe Ray Nagin (former mayor of New Orleans) can round up a few hundred school buses left idle during Katrina and ship some hopey-changeys to Charlotte.

    Never let a good crisis go to waste

    That’s a shopping mall, period, unless you count the millionaire’s cafes above the perfume shops.

    ‘Best weather of the entire week’: Local meteorologist puzzled by Obama speech move
    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.”

    “I would have accomplished a lot more if it weren’t for…”

    – Bush
    – People who cling to their guns and religion
    – People not on board with “clean energy”
    – Naysayers
    – “The people out there who don’t think that …”

    He didn’t build that stadium neither.
