Geez, why are they trying to lighten people?
President Obama acknowledged that there will be “less fanfare” when he accepts the party’s nomination Thursday night because of the change in venue but urged supporters not to let “a little thunder and lightening get us down.”
“We’re gonna have to roll with it,” Obama said on a call with thousands of supporters who will not be able to attend the speech because of the decision to switch the setting from the larger Bank of America Stadium to the smaller Time Warner Cable Arena.
It’s not like this imbecile “reporter” screwed up once:
“I could not ask you, our volunteers, law enforcement, first-responders to subject themselves to the risk of severe thunderstorms,” he said. “Getting 70,000 people into a place is tough. Getting them out of there is even tougher, and if we had started seeing severe thunderstorms and lightening in particular it would have been a problem and we would have had a situation where we were putting you guys at risk.
Not sure what’s more sad, Obama’s excuses or this reporter’s stupidity.
Oh, as to that thunder and lightening:
Update: After tweaking the reporter, she figured out how to spell lightning. Well, at least in the first instance.
She still hasn’t gotten to this one. D’oh!
We helpfully gave her a hint and she finally figured it out.
