DOES AN AWESOME ENOUGH VENUE EXIST TO DO JUSTICE TO HIS AWESOMENESS?
Damn. Is that an impressive image, or what? Is it just me, or does it remind you of the Wizard of Oz's setup in the Emerald City too? I have to be honest; with the plethora of disastrous morsels provided by the Obama Regime over the last three years, I forgot all about the (Hollywood-produced) epic scene of The One's acceptance speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
To be fair, Denver's Pepsi Center wasn't large enough, (20,000 capacity), nor nearly regal enough a venue in which to accommodate Lord Obama and his minions as he accepted the
coronation nomination of his party. The obvious solution was Invesco Field, home of the Denver Broncos, where His Awesomeness - backed by Greek columns and two massive TV screens - gleefully basked in the frenzied adoration of more than 70,000 Kool-Aid-drinking Obamanites.
Politics: Barack Hussein Obama style.
The problem, of course, is the boy who would be king has mostly remained - a boy. (Save your ridiculous charges of racism, loons.) He has failed to live up - not only to the lofty rhetoric of his pathetic "Hope and Change" campaign - but to the minimum standards of anyone who would be President of the United States.
He spoke in 2008 of "restoring respect for America around the world," only to bow to any foreign leader who would stand still long enough, (including China's Hu Jintao), appease adversaries and abandon loyal allies. He promised to "reach across the aisle and work with the other side," only to call them enemies, taunt them with talk of moats and alligators, and engage in a non-stop divisive campaign of class-warfare politics unseen in the behavior of any of his predecessors.
So, that brings us to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. In a climate where ordinary Americans - including a growing number of Democrats - are disillusioned with Lord Obama and his Regime, what's a boy who would be king to do?
Should he show a little sensitivity, demonstrate awareness that times are hard for ordinary folk - and that he has not accomplished all (anything) that he promised - and dial it back a bit? HELL NO.
(See: Barack Obama: Martha's Vineyard, Hawaiian Vacations, Golf.)
Should Dear Leader say "the proletariat be damned," and go even bigger this time around - Kim Jung-il style? HELL YEAH.
C'mon, folks - you know he had to do it; this is Barack the Magnificent we're talking about here. Therefore, Obamapalooza 2012 will be held at the 74,000-seat Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC. Rumor has it that the Regime will be able to cram over 80,000 people into the venue - SEIU members included.
Lest you think it's only "right-wingers" - present company included - who see the brazen hypocrisy in the decision to re-coronate the Boy King in front of 80,000 sycophants, various Democrats view it the same way:
“God almighty, I can’t believe it. This is an amateur’s mistake.” said one top Democratic fundraiser when he learned of the decision to move the speech to Bank of America Stadium. (Home of the NFL's Carolina Panthers.)
“It’s a surprising and disappointing choice,” said Mary Boyle, vice president of Common Cause. “Bank of America is the poster child for corporate greed and corporations out-of-control. The president would be better served by choosing a large public space with no corporate logo attached to it.”
Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, a group that lobbies against corporate influence, added: “Speaking at a stadium named for one of the financial firms that plunged our country into deep recession, we can only hope that Barack Obama will counter the optics by laying out a meaningful plan to control the Wall Street giants.”
These hand-wringing Democrats seem to forget two basic tenets Obamunism:
The Boy King actually believes he deserves the adulation of his lemming-like groupies; he is BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA - the fourth-greatest president in the history of the United States of America. Secondly, anyone and everyone who fails to realize the awesome greatness of this god-king is irrelevant anyway; he doesn't give a damn what they think. Again, he's BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.
Can BOTV be far behind?
Oprah did it. Glenn Beck did it. Nutjob Al Gore even sort of did it. Why can't Barack Obama do it? God knows how much Super Dude loves being on television 24x7.
BOTV: "All Obama - All the Time."
Hell, how much different would it be from the way it is now? He breaks his neck to get to his trusty teleprompter at the drop of an opportunistic hat.
Come to think of it, I can't wait to watch Captain Teleprompter's speech on Punxsutawney Phil's decision in Gobbler's Knob on Groundhog Day this year. The question is, will el presidente make an executive decision to tour the site? If so, will he do a walk-through with his entourage of sycophantic "journalists" in tow, or will it be an official helicopter flyover? Ah, the weighty decisions of Lord Obama.
Anyway, BOTV would definitely be a move in the right direction for the Boy King. The only downside I see is the obvious overlap in programming with the Obama Media Group. Perhaps they'll all merge into one big happy commune.
The Boy King - standing at the royal podium - reading from the royal teleprompter - lookin' all presidential and stuff over Puxsutawney Phil. Probably tellin' us he has to consult with "our allies." Love that.
Maybe he could even get the old Air America crowd back together!
