Thanks Democrats, But Obama’s Got Bigger Plans

Rather, Obama will be putting the convention — and the Democratic party — behind him

Assuming that the Democratic Party will be united — and counting on Hillary Clinton to use her convention speaking slot to tie up any loose ends — the Obama camp will concentrate on connecting with Republicans and independents.

The world is his oister and his megalomania his limit!

“Because this is your convention, not mine, I’m holding an event that is even more about ME than anything else we’ve done yet

“This is your convention, not his”? Only if you’re a willing member of the Obama cult of personality. If you’re not — say, for example, you’re a Clinton delegate, as almost half the assigned delegates are — then an event like this has to feel like an attempt to drown you out, if not to exclude you altogether.

What MSNBC called the rumored B0/Kerry ticket.

Which brought memories of Cabin Boy

Unbelievable fundraising letter

On Thursday, August 28th, he’s scheduled to formally accept the Democratic nomination in a speech at the convention hall in front of the assembled delegates.

Instead, Barack will leave the convention hall and join more than 75,000 people for a huge, free, open-air event where he will deliver his acceptance speech to the American people.

Of course, the “free” part is a figure of speech, as the pitch for money follows next. And wait, there’s door prizes!

If you make a donation of $5 or more between now and midnight on July 31st, you could be one of 10 supporters chosen to fly to Denver and spend two days and nights at the convention, meet Barack backstage, and watch his acceptance speech in person. Each of the ten supporters who are selected will be able to bring one guest to join them.

Make a donation now and you could have a front row seat to history

Backstage passes? Someone took the rock star metaphor literally! Also, I notice that the small donors are needed again. Drought?

So the spin on the stadium extravaganza is…democracy?

that opens up the political process the same way we’ve opened it up throughout this campaign.

Barack has made it clear that this is your convention, not his.

The guy who got his selection in spite of losing the popular vote just wants to be close to his adoring people?
