RUSH: No sooner had I finished our first segment than I looked at a computer and I see one of the lead items on Drudge: “Democrats Set to Move Obama’s Big Speech Indoors.” This is Toby Harnden reporting from Charlotte, North Carolina, UK Daily Mail:
“Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his partyÂ’s nomination before a partially empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor arena and citing ‘severe weather.'” There have been thunderstorms rolling through there for the last few weeks or so. It’s the usual late-afternoon condensation buildup that’s been roaring through there, and…
Well, that’s the thing. I mean, if you’re going to heal the planet and lower the seas, stop the storm. After all, this is The One. This is The Big O. “The Obama campaign has been working desperately to ensure that the 74,000-seater Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte would be filled.” It is Bank of America Stadium. They paid millions of dollars for the naming rights. The Democrats have refused to call it that.
They’re continuing to call it “Panther Stadium.” It’s not “Panther Stadium.” The Democrats had buses for students all across North Carolina, and even members of black churches in neighboring South Carolina have been arranged. They’re having to bus people in there to fill up the 74,000-seat stadium, and I don’t think they’re anywhere near it. They’re obviously nowhere near it. So now they’re going to move it inside (that’s the latest), and use “severe weather” as their explanation.
RUSH: I have a headline. I have a headline if anybody wants to use it on Thursday night. If they move the speech, if they move Thursday night’s proceedings from outdoors to indoors, the headline is: You Didn’t Fill That! And then show a picture of Panther Stadium/Bank of America Stadium. You Didn’t Fill That! We might even use it ourselves at RushLimbaugh.com.
