"A fresh round of Democrats has announced they will not be attending the party convention in Charlotte. Most troublingly for President Obama, several of them are from North Carolina, and not only have they decided not to drop in on a convention held in their own state, they’ve refused to endorse Obama for president in 2012.
The latest round of Democrats fleeing from Obama include North Carolina congressmen Mike McIntyre and Larry Kissell, plus candidate Hayden Rogers. Additionally, news broke just before the Fourth of July holiday that Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas has decided not to attend the party convention, although he does support Obama for president."
I imagine some arm-twisting and possible threat/ bribery will occur to get some Dems to the big show.
When President Obama was asked today if he is bothered by these Convention Demfections he shocked the crowd in Ohio by NOT blaming George Bush...he said it was all Romney's fault.Joke.
While President Obama has the mainstream media in his pocket, he will never be bothered by any such inconvenient queries. segue
Does anyone out there ever recall a Presidential campaign that held fundraisers in other countries?
George Clooney is the draw, though I wouldn't pay a dime to see him chew food. It just seems so strange-Switzerland and France? President Obama complains that Romney outsourced jobs, but he sends Clooney around the world to raise funds?
Maybe his infernal polling has shown that he's more popular overseas-is this the first step in his campaign to become a future Sec Gen of the U.N.? They can have him. Cheap-make offer/OBO.
