Get Ready For Barack Obama's BIG, FAT Tour !!


When a Convention Center is Too Small For Your Ego.....
Time for my Keith Jackson imitation...... You are looking LIVE at Invesco Field in Denver, Colorado, where Barack Obama will accept the nomination for President from the Democratic Convention this Summer....
You heard right... The word is Obama is going to move from the Pepsi Center, which only holds about 20,000 people , to the home of the Denver Broncos, for his acceptance speech. Obama and the Democrats clearly are all about creating an atmosphere of excitement, and they are going all out to wow the voters. If you can't dazzle them with talent, baffle them with bullshit......
Aside from the logistics from a security standpoint, there are questions on the financial responsibilty aspect. No problem. Team Obama will flip the bill for it all. Nevermind that the DNC is $12 million behind on fundraising for the event (see my blog post from yesterday - even the Dems are suffering..), they are going all out to create a spectacle never before seen at a political convention. I'm not impressed.. We had Mike Pence at the SCGOP Convention last month, and he was CRAZY FUN !!! Actually, I missed that. Again, see yesterday's post.....
It doesn't end there either. Obama is working on having a big to-do at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin when he takes his European Tour later this Summer. No word if David Hasselhoff will be opening for him yet.....
Seriously, this is less like politics, and more like a Rock Tour. It's a huge , bloated , expensive and FINANCIALLY IRRESPONSIBLE show.... Obama will likely have spent $45o million by the time this is over. Shit, for $450 Million , he could have bought the Denver Broncos, and made some money on all this. But it's his money, and they are Democrats.... Wait , i forgot - it's your money. How this whole attempt to portray Obama as a Rock Star plays out will be interesting. They are taking a big risk here, and it's not necessarily the smart choice . We'll see........
