DNC readies 'contingency plan,' watches weather for Obama acceptance speech

Tampa, Florida (CNN) – Democratic National Convention officials have been anxiously watching the weather for next week when President Obama will deliver his convention speech from an outdoor stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, a convention official told CNN. Another source said officials have readied a "contingency plan" which would be announced "closer to the convention" should extreme weather strike.

On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, the DNC will hold events at the indoor Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte. On Thursday, President Obama – and Vice President Biden – are slated to deliver acceptance speeches at the outdoor Bank of America Stadium. The stadium seats just over 73,000.

        No Answer?

        YUP, as I suspected,,, you were Neutered,,,,

        DEcember2012,,,

        We have learned how LIBERALS argue,,,,

        Basically CONSERVATIVES SAY

        Fact, Fact Fact, and therefore PROBABLE ENDING,,,

        LIBERALS, Like Debbie Wasserma Shultz, and Sandra Fluk responds with,,,

        Doesn't Matter what the facts are,,,,
        Liberals want Money From Producers to give to the Takers
        to pay for, amongst other things, 30 year old Law Student's Birth Control and Forced Sterilizations!

        Has nothing to do with your being neutered as a child....

        How many kids do you have that are going to take on the Prizzy's NATIONAL DEBT????

        Or are you from Brazil or Kenya such that your children will be free of the Prizzy's NATIONAL DEBT?

        Remember,,,, FACT, FACT, FACT,, and therefore ANSWER dealing with the FACTS!

        Hey Howard you know that movie has been called out on distorting the real facts, the director of the movie gets real tongue tied when asked how did he come up with (his) facts. You can watch the video on youtube..... so before you believe everything that is fed into you mouth... do some research.

        I am sorry, but I do not intentionally watch fact loose propaganda that is a hatchet job on probably one of the best statesmen and leaders of our modern time. Of course you would not agree with me because you are too busy hating him and tying him to everything you hate in government. As if he instrumented the whole thing! I am not at all amused by people like you who make a loud noise, lack vision, and lumber behind the elephant in front of you. That is in essence what a republican is.

        I did see Obama's America 2016 it was one of the best movies I ever saw.
        I did not vote for Obama but I went in with an open mind not knowing what to expect.
        We are all American's first and I do not see any reason for anyone to argue. I am sure all that are reading this Loves America as I do. I just hope that everyone decides to see the movie.
        I am not looking to argue with the Right or the Left but to have an open mind as I did when I saw Michael Moore's move Farenhight 911.
        If you chose not to see it you should not argue over it.
        May God bless our country!

        You like to think people are impressed with the scars you have all over your head. They think you might have been in hand-to-hand combat until you mention you use a WEED-WACKER to give yourself haircuts.
        P.S. BLOODY GUMS ARE A TURN-OFF. So, stop trying to get girls by standing around picking your teeth with your over-sized hunting knife.

      I mean New Orleans,,,

      to INSPECT THE DAMAGE of the Hurricane?

      What did he say there?

      Did he schedule a Golf appointment on any of the days?

      Did Golfer-in-Chief Campaigne in any areas
      I MEAN in other states,
      before his visit to the Bayou?

      Any Propaganda, OLIGARCHIAL and CRONY

      NEWS-OUTLETS

      • Steveo

        Why can't you just believe Mikle was simply talking about PERFORMANCE? After all the quote was "Very Low PERFORMANCE". Is that now code for "black president"? Could it just be code for "very low performance?

        Why do I keep getting this feeling that if it were Colin Powell, this arguement pretty much dies?

Plus democrates will talk up their platform not cover it up like the lying repos. We are proud of what we believe in not trying to sneak it in under the radar like the rich phoney repos. Who hoped no one would notice their stance on birth control and abortion. Mitt and his own platform cant come togeather which on will they follow and who is lying?

What is more important: to keep killing babies or for you and all of us to keep our country and all it's privileledges. If all people fill us is speaches...God help us all. Let's fill with substance and facts. The last four years are the best predictor of the next four..unemployment, floreclosures, divided country and the list goes on so the social issues although important they are not what people use to pay their groceries and mortgages, school tuition and so forth.

    The disparity between the candidates has rarely been so clear in a presidential election–Romney/Ryan as the Herbert Hoover ticket reincarnated–let the robber-baron industrialists keep their gold and the market sort itself out while people suffer. Obama/Biden, who have made every right play with the terrible hand of cards Bush provided. The only possible mistake was that the stimulus was too small (not that the GOP would have allowed a bigger one).

    With the tea party Republicans we have had four years of anti-immigrant hate (the shooting of a congresswoman and others in Arizona egged on by Palin and the far right), four years of thinly veiled racism. The armed Pat Buchanan/ "militia" types attending rallies like pro-HItler 1920s brownshirts. The voter ID effort to crush the black vote and take us back to Jim Crow.

    It's scary what the Republicans will do steal [another] election. The possible backwards slide with a racist, elitist, middle-class crushing, robber baron Romney/Ryan white house is breathtakingly frightening.

    Vote decency, fairness, compassion and justice, not racism, gun thuggery, aristocracy; vote Obama...

However, you might think I would deem Elvis of all people, who doesn't compare to any of the guys I've known in my life who were actually maybe worth throwing panties at, is truly hilarious. Elvis gave a poor vocal performance that night and deserved to have been kicked to the curb in his self-appointed hell of a life. We were given FREE TICKETS to see a LOSER. And, you, STILL would trade places with him any day. BWAH-HA-HA! Don't tell me,...you threw your undies at Tom Jones-did he put them on his head??

    well the president won't have to do much to make a better acceptance speach than mitt. repo platform sucks convention was based on one lie after another. ryans 714 billion on medicare. THe help building it theme. The welfare reform nonsense and to top it off senile clint talking to a chair while offending people like ophra who did;nt comment and was'nt there. Then trying to make it look likr the president was making vulgar comments to mitt. As for going to the hospital for thoses folks kid , that is whay a bishop does part of their job just like a deacon or a priest or minister. Mostly a very dull convention with a lot of dull or looney people. Like the nut jobs they threw out for making racial remarks. The repo party of NO has tried to tie welfare to black people and gays to anti christians and woman who want to be in charge of their own bodies to murderers. They are a repulsive party of rich gready white old people who never intended to help anyone but themselves.

        Let's see,January 2009 Annual Budget Debt $1.5 Trillion via unpaid, unjustified wars, tax give aways to the rich, unfunded giveaway to the drug industry, major drop in tax revenue because of near depression level financial meltdown. So you would have decided to cut the debt at this point. You and Herbert Hoover have a lot in common.

        You should be kissing Obama's ass that he did the stimulus preventing a worst depression then 1929, the time to address the deficit was 2001 when we had a surplus, but no Bush and people like you had no concerns about being financially responsible then. We need to increase demand via more stimulus to grow our way out of this mess.

        The polls show Obama up by 3% or more where it counts so your comment is wrong. Obama has done more for America in four years than Bush and Robme could hope to achieve. Here are a list of Obama achievements first term.

        Obama has overhauled the food safety system
        Advanced women's rights in the work place
        Ended Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) in our military
        Stopped defending DOMA in court.
        Passed the Hate Crimes bill.
        Appointed two pro-choice women to the Supreme Court.
        Expanded access to medical care and provided subsidies for people who can't afford it.
        Expanded the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
        Fixed the preexisting conditions travesty [and rescissions] in health insurance.
        Invested in clean energy.
        Overhauled the credit card industry, making it much more consumer-friendly.
        While Dodd-Frank bill was weak in many respects, it was still an extremely worthwhile start at re-regulating the financial sector.
        He created a Elizabeth Warren's dream agency: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
        He's done a lot for veterans
        He got help for people whose health was injured during the clean-up after the 9/11 attacks.

        None of these things were priorities for Republicans. They actively opposed, directly or indirectly through obstruction, every single item on this list. In fact, they succeeded in killing a Cap & Trade bill in the Senate after it had passed through the House.

        All of these things are improvements that would not have occurred under a McCain-Palin administration. Moreover, a McCain-Palin administration would have moved in the other direction on most of these issues, or come up with even worse compromises.

    Very interesting, I took a moment and read the posts on this page. 1free worlds comments flying over the heads of these Marxists(who don't know what they are). The continuing bashing of Mitt Romney although there really is nothing to bash him about, he is a center right politician (proven by his record), the most left leaning GOP candidate in our history.

    The blacks in America are slowly coming to realize obama is NOT one of them, as 1 free world stated (but you missed it)..obama is kenyan/communist/marxist american and admits it in his books). You see obama was indeed elected by Americans who are trying above all else to prove they are not racist and obama knew this and used it...as he has done since his early years. We have all been scammed, obama does not have an American brain...he is not a black, white, or brown American. We don't know who he is.....God help us if he is reelected.

    For all you folks that are (STILL) supporting Obama I wish you all good luck if he is Re-Elected. You will sure need it. Have you noticed all tha Obama Supporters on this Post don't have anything Postive to say but are all taking Cheap Shots. That and a few bucks will buy you a cup of coffee. I had a friend that had a saying about such things. WHEN IN DOUBT, RUN IN CIRCLES, SCREAM AND SHOUT. Some here are running around like a Chicken with it's head cut off. Kinda reminds you of Obama, doesn't it?
