Facing a major deficit, Democrats are scaling back on their convention festivities

posted at 10:41 am on June 26, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Well, ain’t that a darn shame! With their convention just over two months away, the Democratic National Committee’s party planners are about $27 million smackers short of their fundraising goal — which means that they’re finding it suddenly necessary to cut down on some of the initially planned bells and whistles of their party’s main event.

Democrats canceled a political convention kick-off event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and will move the activities to Charlotte’s main business district, the convention’s host committee announced. …

The move comes as party planners are grappling with a fundraising deficit of roughly $27 million, according to two people familiar with the matter who requested anonymity to discuss internal party politics. With a party ban on direct contributions from corporations, the host committee has raised less than $10 million, well short of its $36.6 million goal, said one of the people. …

In January, Steve Kerrigan, chief executive officer of the convention committee, said that Democrats were shortening their convention from four days to three “to make room for a day to organize and celebrate the Carolinas, Virginia and the South and kick off the convention at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Labor Day,” Sept. 3.

Kerrigan also announced that Obama would accept his party’s nomination at the almost 74,000-seat Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers professional football team. The outdoor finale would echo Obama’s convention speech at Invesco Field in Denver four years ago. …

Republicans have not placed any restrictions on where they raise money and have secured corporate contributions from such companies as AT&T Inc. (T), Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and Coca-Cola Co. (KO) to meet their $55 million target.

It wouldn’t be funny, except that they dreamed so big — President Obama, for example, felt that he wouldn’t be able to confine his self-glorification to anything less than a gigantic football stadium — and they’re finding themselves forced to realize that even celebrations of President Obama’s magnanimity are built on budgets, not enthusiastic projections of grandeur. Kind of strangely similar to how they run the government, huh?

And of course, it looks like their high and mighty decision to decline contributions from — quelle horreur — eeeevil corporations hasn’t done much to inspire ‘the little people’ to pick up the fundraising slack. (Also, President Obama’s nomination acceptance is going down in the Bank of America stadium. Uhm, hello?! Conflicting messages, much? Oh, that’s right, those eeeevil corporations and big banks and whatnot are the ones who do such eeeeevil things as build football stadiums. It much be such a troublesome paradox for those high-minded populists.) Whether it’s more because of their self-imposed corporate donation limits or whether people are just generally unable or unwilling to give, it definitely doesn’t feel like they’ve been able to drum up the same level of riotous enthusiasm  as 2008, and it does not bode well for them. Sad face.

The Democrats are of course claiming that the move has more to do with logistics than money, but after announcing they were scaling back their convention from four days to three in January, and with some Democratic politicians starting to pointedly announce that they’ll have better things to do than attend the DNC convention, I wonder if they shouldn’t be feeling a little sheepish. The Democrats chose North Carolina in part because it’s an in-play swing state and they wanted to engage and excite the whole city, but it’s turning into kind of a nightmare — the hits just keep on coming.

Excuse me while I reflect on the “fiscally responsible” party (if you believe Obama’s economic justifications) and this situation:

And yet these idiots think they can solve the country’s financial problems when they cannot even solve their own. Millions from Soros alone and they are out of money? I wonder which ones of them have cash stashed away in their freezer like that New Orleans Dem Rep did. I guess they will have to get the styrofoam Greek columns out of the storage vault and use them again…on second thought perhaps anything that reminds them of bankrupt Greece isn’t a good idea. It’s as I always say, you have only to look at Detroit to see what 50 years of unchallenged Dem governance can do. Look at California as well. Now look to my own very red state of Texas. Who you going to trust on the economy?

Consider this as well:

Outdoor football stadium in Charlotte, NC in early September.

Could very possibly be a tropical storm or hurricane to deal with, perhaps even a major hurricane, cat 3 or higher.

The GOP isn’t much better off because they are in Tampa, FL in late August.

Remember that folks, it is entirely possible for either convention to be disrupted by tropical weather.

See, Democrats will cut spending when they can’t get money with a gun pointed to people’s heads, or borrow and print it as if by magic the bill will never come due. The real world can be harsh, which is why the children in the Democrat party don’t want to live in it.

For some reason I ended up on the campaign’s e-mailing list urging me to donate to the convention (as a reward I would get my name on a NASCAR car or something). If I am typical of their target audience someone inside the campaign is either woefully inept or a double agent playing a cruel joke on them.

Buy Danish on June 26, 2012 at 11:03 AM

Ever since the conservatives dropped out of the primaries and Romney won the nomination, it doesn’t even seem like an election year. Obama is doing what he’s done since he was elected, traveling around raising money, lying and issuing executive orders, and who knows where Romney is. I doubt I will watch any of the convention coverage because I can’t think of anything more boring than Romney and whoever he picks. I’ll just read the headlines and the blogs. I hope I don’t forget to vote.

It is heartening to see the edges fraying for the Democrats, but they still have managed to get around 50% or more of our fellow citizens beholden or dependent upon the government. That entitlement mentality is likely to be a powerful electoral force against any person or party that runs against the Democrats.

To my way of thinking, life is infinitely better when you are not dependent on government, but those of us dedicated to limited government will need to be twice as vigilant, twice as persuasive and work twice as hard to get and keep these Democratic party statists out of office.

If we start thinking a Democrat Party defeat this November is a sure thing, we are liable to be very unpleasantly surprised.
