Sununu on DNC venue switcheroo: “You can’t believe a thing this administration says”

posted at 4:41 pm on September 5, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

After this morning’s news that the Democrats are now planning to move Obama’s convention speech from the outdoor, 70,000-capacity Bank of America football stadium to the indoor, 20,000-capacity Time Warner basketball arena because of ostensible weather concerns (meaning, the 30 percent chance of thunderstorms on the forecast practically every night in the summer for the mid-eastern seaboard), there’s been no shortage of mockery from the Right for the Democrats’ retreat from much-heralded enthusiasm to defensive sheepishness. The campaigns have been trading barbs, and the Romney camp’s resident ‘honey badger’ John Sununu pointed out that this is yet another Obama promise gone awry:

“You can’t believe a thing this administration says,” Sununu told reporters at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “This campaign promised you, rain or shine, the president would be speaking there. Then when they couldn’t get a crowd they brought it inside. I think those facts speak for themselves.” …

“You would think they’d be smart enough to lie about things that weren’t easy to check,” he said. “Almost all the speakers last night accused Romney of wanted to raise taxes on the middle class. There is a very simple declarative sentence that is Gov. Romney’s position on the middle class: ‘We are going to cut their taxes by 20 percent.’ That is not a complicated sentence. It might be for Barack Obama, but that is not a complicated sentence.”

The Obama campaign has tried to fire back. It’s pretty precious:

The Obama campaign is facing a barrage of criticism and mockery from Republicans for scrapping plans to hold the final night of their convention at downtown Charlotte’s more than 73,000-seat Bank of America Stadium. But they’ve got a message for their detractors.

“I’ve got two words for you,” a senior Obama campaign official told ABC News, “Ford Field.”

The official was referring to Mitt Romney’s February 2012 speech before a crowd of 1,200 at Detroit’s Ford Field — a stadium that seats up to 80,000. Democrats on Wednesday circulated a now-famous photo of Romney speaking in  the almost-empty venue with the tongue-in-cheek headline: “Mitt Romney’s idea of a successful stadium event….”

Feeble, Team O. Nobody’s made a bigger deal out of Barack Obama’s ostensible abilities to fill a stadium then you guys, and let’s be serious: The lack of enthusiasm that previously committed Obama-voters are feeling right now is a huge problem for their side. If there had been a real opportunity for the Democrats to showcase a football stadium chock-full of wildly supportive Obama fanatics, I doubt even a dang monsoon would’ve stopped them from doing so.

Update: Oh, this just keeps on getting more and more humiliating. I almost feel a little badly for piling on. …Almost. Via BuzzFeed:

kingsjester on September 5, 2012 at 4:45 PM

So they’re admitting that it’s the optics of an empty stadium that they’re worried about.

Of course they’re admitting it by LYING, but then again, it’s the democratic party and apparently their supporters really couldn’t care less of their representatives lie to them.

KMC1 on September 5, 2012 at 4:46 PM

If this is about the ability to fill a room then I suggest they reschedule again out of the Time Warner arena, and find something more within their ability. Google tells me there’s a Waffle House kind of near the airport.

Gingotts on September 5, 2012 at 4:46 PM

The only problem is, these filthy Commie faithful think that the demo-deity can control the weather.

This “excuse” should be an eye-opener, for their religion.

Remember when Hillary’s biggest attribute was “inevitability”, which Obama then punctured? Karma’s a bitch, huh?

Can’t wait for the riots when the 50,000 Dems find out they’ve been cut out of “The One’s” coronation.

O.K. Maybe not 50,000—would you believe 35,000. No? How about 20,000? Not quite? Would you believe 3 alcoholics and a newperson from MSNBC?

Reference to Ford Field absolutely cracks me up !!
IIRC, those 1200 people were moved into the stadium at the last minute, BECAUSE THEY HADN’T PLANNED ON THAT MANY SHOWING UP !!
The original room couldn’t hold them all, hence the move.

Talk about up is down !!
ROFLMAO !!

pambi on September 5, 2012 at 4:50 PM

Remember when “inevitability” was Hillary’s biggest asset? The MSM has been pushing that same meme for Obama during the 2012 campaign. Looks like it’s gonna bite him, just like it bit Hillary in 2008.

ardenenoch on September 5, 2012 at 4:50 PM

I think the reason why they did this move is because they are worried that the electric “APPLAUSE” signs might malfunction in the rain so they had to find a venue with better cover.

OK, fine. I get it.

Obama can’t fill a full stadium in NC in summer, while in winter a primary hopeful couldn’t get a lot of people in Michigan during winter.

News2Use on September 5, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Reality doesn’t meet expectations. That they can’t fill the stadium like the thought they would tells us something about the enthusiasm on their side.

That they won’t even come close to raising a billion dollars like they said they would says even more.

These people were so deluded by Obama’s Messiah Myth that they were making these predictions in 2009.

Hubris is their worst enemy. Pride before the fall.

A friend of Harry Reid’s phoned me to say that Barack ‘Our Savior’ Obama planned to start his speech by saying, “And may lightning strike me if I’m lying about that felon Romney not paying any taxes for ten years . . .” Could be why they had to move it inside.

Reminds me of a story about Stalin. When he would give a speech to the Party faithful, of course, they would all stand at attention, with roars of approval. The only problem was – they were all scared shitless to be the first one to stop clapping and sit down. It got so bad, that Stalin ordered that a bell be rung, so that all would know that it was safe to sit down.

I could see The Commie doing this, easily.

Over 250,000 people voted for Obama in Mecklenburg county – for those that don’t know, that’s the county Charlotte is in – in 2008. If the O is so popular, I can’t believe they couldn’t find 73,000 to fill the stadium from that county. Not to mention the Dem voters garnered from nearby counties.

That they had to resort to busing people in from across the state and from other states and they still couldn’t fill the place says quite a lot, and none of it good for the Dems come November.

albill on September 5, 2012 at 4:59 PM

I wonder how many people won’t be able to attend Thursday night’s speech? You know, people who traveled on their own dime and booked rooms in advance and so on. While Zero can’t fill BOA stadium, he would have had more than 20,000 people show up. Me thinks there will be more than a few pissed off people Thursday night. Eh, they’ll still vote for him anyway…

joejm65 on September 5, 2012 at 5:00 PM

The official was referring to Mitt Romney’s February 2012 speech

Brilliant, Michael Falcone and Devin Dwyer of ABC News, your link results in a 503 error message. It’s just pathetic what passes for “journalism” these days; the article was apparently rushed out (Sep 5, 2012 3:28pm) and nobody bothered to check it for link integrity.

Romney Grabs Lead in Ohio Poll

A new Gravis Marketing poll in Ohio shows Mitt Romney with a small lead over President Obama in the key battleground state, 47% to 44%.

Obama held a one point lead in the firm’s previous poll.

Republican Senatorial candidate, Josh Mandel, has taken a 44.3% to 43.5% lead over Sen. Sherrod Brown, representing a 3 point bump for Mandel.

bayview on September 5, 2012 at 5:03 PM

I’m listening to all the Dem’s trying to spin this stadium thing and I’m thinking of how it’s so obvious that they’re covering up for Obama’s own ability to fill the stadium, and THEN, not once, but twice, I hear the weather woman on FOX talking about what a smart move it was to move the speech because, “gosh, oh gee, there IS a 30% chance of some showers, maybe even some lightening”. And no, she was not being sarcastic.

Why is FOX bending over backwards during this miserable DNC convention to carry Barry’s water? Every show I’ve seen today has been SO deferential, and awed by all that is to come. How many times to we have to hear Bill Clinton reverently referred to as “The Big Dog”? Maybe the big hound dog. Sheesh.

Being for Canada, I see that you do not understand that, in the SOuth, we have more days than not with a 20 – 30% chance of rain, where nothing happens at all.

Keep shovelin’.

They are going with the Greek condums this time around.

Heck, the Charlotte Theater is available and has 221 seats.

Seems like a good venue for the Dems.

Uh, I dunno…a venue that big might end up half empty. They should probably meet in some devoted Charlotte lefty’s living room. Then the LSM could put their “standing room only” spin on the event.

That campaign appearance clip: Pathetic. And I’m not referring to the puny size of the “crowd.”
