Thousands to Be Turned Away as DNC Moves Obama Speech Indoors Due to Weather Threat

The threat of severe weather has caused Democratic Convention organizers to move Obama's Thursday night speech  indoors to the Time Warner Cable arena (where last night's and tonight's events are situated) rather than the Bank of America stadium, CNN reports:

Dncc"We have been monitoring weather forecasts closely and several reports predict thunderstorms in the area, therefore we have decided to move Thursday's proceedings to Time Warner Cable Arena to ensure the safety and security of our delegates and convention guests," said DNCC CEO Steve Kerrigan.

Officials had already handed out 65,000 tickets for the event at the Bank of America stadium, but the Time Warner Cable Arena-home to NBA's Charlotte Bobcats-can seat up to 21,000. As a result, thousands will be turned away.

    Pure BS. It’s being pointed out if this were a football game the chance of it being cancelled ahead given the probability here of “bad weather” is zero.
    It’s hilarious, they build up Black Jesus the Almighty to fail and when he does it’s his opposition’s fault! A word to the wise: a little humility goes a long way. But maybe they could get an indoor moat for BJ to walk across.

    What I hate most about Barack Obama and his wife is that they’re both black liberals and they support gay people and my white conservative family hates gay people, so I’m really really angry at how unfair that is.

    You have no idea what’s it’s like to live with a micropenis.

    You don’t. It’s horrible.

    I have to live with it every day of my life.

    People literally point and laugh at the gym. Well, pointed.

    It’s been years.

    Yeah, baby. I get the Rick treatment from morons who don’t think 5 minutes before Obama’s speech in the little arena that there aren’t going to be shots from B of A stadium showing clear starry skies. But thanks for playing.

    I wonder if this was moved because of all the crazy T-Baggers out there planning to harm BO with their stock piles of weapons? Change really is that scary to some people. Why couldn’t they be targeting Marcus instead?
