Obama Outdoor Speech May Be Rained Out

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On September 2, 2012 @ 5:51 pm In The Point | 4 Comments

First the rain washed away Obama’s 16-foot sand sculpture and now it may wash away his outdoor stadium speech.

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.

Forecasts show the potential for rain and possibly thunderstorms on Thursday for Charlotte, creating the potential for the soaking of the tens of thousands of attendees and casting a cloud over the carefully-staged event.

So much for being able to lower the seas. Obama doesn’t even seem to be able to control the rain. He has trouble even using an umbrella.

“There’s been some conversations that the forecast is already predicting storms,” one convention official said. While stressing that no decisions have been made, the official said: “Of course there’s some conversations about contingency plans.”

When asked to outline what options that plan might include, the source said, “We will only announce contingency plans in the event that an emergency/severe weather actually arises, so that we can be sure that we communicate only one plan, the one that is accurate and relevant to the situation at hand.”

The most technocratic campaign ever is having “conversations about contingency” plans for an outdoor event that they planned on the coast during hurricane season. Why does anyone think that the future of America may not be safe in their hands?

But don’t worry, in the event that a downpour begins, somebody will announce a contingency plan involving a trillion dollar bailout and some shovel ready jobs building levees out of the remains of Obama’s giant sand sculpture.

America needs a contingency plan for another four years of Obama.
