Droplets Force Obama – Regretfully – To Move From His 8.5 Million Seat EnormoDrome to a 20 thousand seat arena
Those are the breaks, people. If not for the drizzle EIGHT AND A HALF MILLION PEOPLE would have been falling out of the rafters of the EnormoDrome, all to get a rare glimpse of the incumbent president.
Oh, a top Charlotte meteorologist is saying that there is little to no chance of rain Thursday.
Daily Caller -
The chief meteorologist at a Charlotte television station is questioning the decision by Democrats to move President Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention to a smaller venue because of the weather.
“Thursday night will likely be the best weather of the entire week,” Brad Panovich of WCNC-NBC TV wrote on Twitter in reference to when Obama’s speech was planned to take place at the outside Bank of America stadium, which can accommodate 70,000 people.
The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday announced that the weather is forcing them to relocate Obama’s speech to the Time Warner Cable Arena, which is inside and holds a far fewer 22,000 people.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday morning after the news broke, Panovich said there’s only a 20 to 30 percent chance of rain or storms and argued that “if you are going to move inside for this small risk you could have done that days ago.”
Said Panovich: “My main point is if you were going to move inside for the small [weather] threat Thursday [,you] could have made that decision a week ago.”
“It’s a simple question.. if you had a #Panthers game, Concert or Soccer match with a 20% chance of storms would you cancel 24hrs prior?” he asked.
