The Democrats have apparently modified their earlier plans of holding Obama’s nomination acceptance speech in the Bank of America stadium and have, instead decided to go indoors into the Time Warner Cable Arena because of fears of sudden bad weather conditions.
The decision has apparently been taken keeping in mind the safety of the public because, in case there are sudden thundershowers while the program is on, it would lead to pandemonium.
This decision would be a huge disappointment to thousands of Obama supporters because while the stadium could accommodate 74000, the indoor arena has facilities to seat only 20000.
But – has the change been necessitated due to fears of inclement weather or of fears of inability to fill the stadium with supporters as hoped for?
The Romney camp wants to believe the latter.
This has been reported in foxnews.com of dated 6th of September 2012.
The Democrats want to see Obama get a second term and, with an adversary like Romney who appears to be forever on shaky ground roping in Hollywood actor of yesteryearsto address an empty chair, the Democrats feel they have a reasonably good chance to ensure a win for the incumbent President.
Former President Bill Clinton has had his say – he has suggested that the 90s-style economic boom will continue if Obama returns to the White House and has added that US would be better off if Obama is brought back.
Earlier, vice Presidenthad reminded the voters that ‘Osama bin Laden is dead, General Motors is alive’.
And – before that the First Ladyhad said - give Barack another chance to complete his unfinished agenda because change takes time.
It is all a sparring game – while Obama may be seen by some as having lost his magic touch which had been evident 4-years back, the alternative available to Americans in the form ofis not that attractive enough.
It seems in a new poll conducted for The Hill – Obama managed to get acceptance of only 40% of voters to remain in office but 52% wanted that he make way for another man. It has been concluded that he stands no chance to win on his own merits but can win if his opponent gifts it to him on a platter.
It all boils down to the simple fact that the voters would have to make a choice between a person they have known for the last 4-years and a new one who may or may not deliver.
