    “Well said, he’s not a very popular person at the moment, he will be liked better as an ex-president, and the sooner the better.”According to the Fox “News” crowd. But then they go out of their way to put a negative spin anything they don’t support.

    This is a meme on the right, and was even before the convention, that somehow Democrats can’t get a crowd excited. Several cartoonists obviously get their marching orders from Fox News. It’s a lame joke, and based on a false pretense. Did the Republicans cancel their first day because they couldn’t fill the stadium? No, it was the weather. And their convention wasn’t even outdoors.

    First, they moved indoors because of a threat of LIGHTNING, not just “rain”.

    Second, as it came up before anyone had arrived (to fill the arena beyond capacity) the “issue” of whether Jerusalem should be the Israeli capital (It should NOT, under the U.N. terms that CREATED the modern nation of Israel), has NO RATIONAL REASON to be in the platform of EITHER AMERICAN political party.

    OUR Constitution is quite rightly, and deliberately, SECULAR, not sectarian. Despite what Pat Robertson declares on “700 Club”.

    Which, the reason Hillary Clinton, as the appointed Secretary of State, will NOT be addressing the convention, is that the Constitution, and law, prohibit such “political” activity by said appointees confirmed by the Senate. Something Republicans under “w” regularly ignored to “play politics”.

    The news interview people that had waited 6 hours to see the Pres. He would have very easily filled that stadium. This strip is; out-of-touch, petty and lame.

    ….and you are so full of it. The DNC is being more caring by moving the venue indoors than leaving people out in the rain. Tell me, dude – have you ever been hit by lightning or had a relative/friend hit by lightning? The way you’re going on, it sounds as the answer is “no”. I have, and I live in an area that gets THE MOST THUNDERSTORMS in the World, much less the US. Every meteorologist in the US is agreeing with the DNC’s decision to move indoors..Next time, dude – get your facts straight BEFORE you post and make yourself look like an idiot. Otherwise, someone who actually knows about said subject may make you look like one.

    for more than a week, the NEWS had reports that the DNC was having difficulty finding people to GIVE tickets to come and occupy one of those 74,000 seats!-they resorted to asking faraway churches and organizations to BUS people to the Thursday night convention…even from Atlanta, Georgia!-then the DNC dems began “explaining” that Charlotte, N.C. did not have enough rooms for all the stayovers this week. DUH.so not only the Obama administration shows incompetence, the DNC Planners must have been incompetent on the choice of an Open-Air stadium, and on the available accommodations…p.s. the GOP had serious Weather Bureau warnings on storm/hurricane Isaac…..plus the Tampa authorities advice…the threat of a thunderstorm in Charlotte on Thursday night was not a weather top level warning.

    They handed out 64,000 tickets with another 9,000 in standby. Watching Bill’s speech, it would have been standing room only even in that huge stadium.

    On 2 different Charlotte radio stations today, there were news reports about the mad scramble to establish satellite venues so that the nomination could be viewed by those that wouldn’t fit in Time Warner Cable Arena. If they have to stream the speech to various auditoriums, I doubt that it’s because of poor attendance.
