Democratic National Convention Cancels Kickoff Event, Due To Monetary Costs;
Claire McCaskill Cancels Convention Attendance, Due To Political Costs

The DNC had planned to open their convention with an event at the Charlotte Speedway; they'll be moving it somewhere cheaper and smaller.

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.

They claim it's for "logistical" reasons. Well, money is logistics, too.

Back in January they decided to shorten the convention from four days to three.

I guess that fourth day would have been when Claire McCaskill spoke. Because now she's not coming.

Supposedly this is her standard practice in years in which she's seeking election. She did skip the 2004 election (but then, Missouri voted for Bush, and she might have had similar concerns about the haughty liberal senator from Massachusetts).

Exit question: How many convention cancellations does this make? McCaskill, Manchin, Tester, Matheson, Tomblin, Rahall, Critz — who else? Good lord. No wonder they’re moving to a smaller venue. At this rate, Obama, Biden, and OWS will be the only ones there.

Update: Dan McLaughlin: “If this many in his party were bailing on attending the convention of an incumbent GOP POTUS, media would spin it as sign of his extremism.”

Fantastic point. If Obama can't hold his coalition -- if he's getting cancellations and people distancing himself from him -- doesn't that mean he's too liberal, too extreme, for the Democratic Party, and for the voters generally?

But no. The "extremist" label can only be applied to the GOP. It's in the Media Narrative Stylebook.

21 Basically Obama was able to rely on big companies to throw cash at him last time, and this time around he only has hardcore leftists and celebrities to give him help. The corporations and big time business donors always go with the winner, they always bank on the one they figure has the win because that way they're on the side of the guy with power.

They ain't going with Obama this time around.

I know this is rhetorical, but the Obumbles campaign is going through cash faster than a sailor on leave. Mostly because all the volunteers three years ago will now show up, so he actually has to pay for staff. So yes, there will be a major re-allocation of resources from the campaign. Soon.

And, he won't share what he does get with his Democratic party guests (winky).

As an added bonus, the crowd there is slightly less red-state than a NASCAR venue, but only a little less, since they want to demonstrate their bipartisan outreach.

117 What this tells me is that her internal polling in Missouri and Democratic insiders there must be saying that Obama is toxic this year. Missouri has been shifting red for awhile, but I think it's now definitely red.

There's a scenario where Romney wins this thing in a wipeout, losing only the NE and the West Coast. There are scenarios where Romney wins a smaller victory, or where Obama ekes out a victory by threading the needle (including by winning Nebraska's Second Congressional District). But there increasingly is no scenario where Obama wins a blowout. Which is good, because that means that we'll very likely have a Republican Senate and keep a Republican House.

152 We remember how quick Claire was to hop on the Barack Obama bandwagon. The fact that the Republican candidates are, shall we say, less than memorable personalities and she's still running scared speaks volumes. As for governor, even as politically informed as I try to be, I could not tell you who is running against Nixon. (It might be Spence, but he may be one of the Senate candidates...) Claire McCaskill got elected because of the urban vote. I think that's also part of the reason she glommed on to Obama so quickly. She figured the city folks would turn out in 2012 as they did in 2008 and keep her in office.

Huge forehead aside I mostly like Akin. (He's been nonresponsive to his constitutents lately saything Polliwogette, but that's part for the course for congress.)
Also keep in mind, currently Claire running against NO ONE. I've seen a few Crossroads ads, maybe a primary ad directed at her, but that's it. Except for her ads to keep her treading water.
And the shit hasn't even begun to travel in the general direction of the fan. Google "Claire McCaskill scandal" and see the shit the R's are going to have to work against. And there's rumors in the air about how she may (or may not) have helped her husband's Nursing home business when she was state auditor.
She won in the '06 anti-R and Anti-incumbant wave, that ain't gonna happen again. (Remember Carnahan lost her senate bid by something sad like 12 pts.)

The unions are going to fund a convention in a right to work state where there are NO unionized hotels. (Yep, they have plenty of money after their pyrrhic unvictories in Wisconsin)

They forbid support from eeeevvvvilll corporations. (Until last week when they set upa committee to launder the funds)

But at least they have an energized Democrat base full of volunteers. (ignore the sex (same-sex) harrassment suit against the NC DNC leader that refused to leave.) (They have that really popular governor too)

167 maybe the Regular Persons among the democrats (like claire the loon?) are wising up to the fact that 08 was a "sick and fucking tired" vote after all and that listening to the hegemonic ultraprogressive wing of their party is no way to stay elected given a moderate or average electorate.

here's fodder for thoughter: we all get apoplectic when the media calls our right-wing extremists...well, right-wing extremists. you know, the ones that are busy implementing the most regressive social agenda they can possibly imagine presenting to the congress?

the decmorats are apparently wising up to the fact that only a small portion of the electorate will walk with the extremist ideology of the left. will it take a Major Electoral Repudiation before we on the right finally accept the same about our own hardliners?

this is an exciting time in nat'l politics...the repubs will have an agenda-setting mandate like perhaps never before. i've disliked mitt romney for years...not big on oil; i much prefer overdoing the vinegar personally...but i, for one, am really fucking glad he's gonna be leading the charge and not rick santorum.

employees of 15 top tech companies, as compared to $1.6 million donated
by the same companies’ staff four years ago. …

Romney has raised almost $340,000 during this election campaign from
the 15 tech companies’ employees, far behind his opponent but already
ahead of the roughly $240,000 that Republican presidential candidate
John McCain picked up through May 2008.

199 Officials in
Durham, New Hampshire insist they weren‘t trying to cause problems for
the president’s re-election effort when they requested reimbursement for
his Monday campaign stop.

“While pleased that the campaign has chosen Durham, a quintessential New England college community as the backdrop for Monday’s scheduled campaign visit,
community leaders do not believe that costs associated with the
campaign should be borne by local taxpayers,” town administrator Todd
Selig said, estimating the trip would cost between $20,000 and $30,000.
While a Friday CBS article said an Obama official assured the city it would be reimbursed, as of Sunday, it seems, the administration said they wouldn't pay (ABC reports that the campaign "demurred” when the town sought reimbursement).

Now, an anonymous donor has stepped up to the plate and offered up to $20,000 to defray the cost of the president’s visit.

As long as the primary doesn't get ridiculously ugly, Claire isn't going to win.

366 Knott's Berry Farm has a fun anti-Disney attitude about it.

The last time I was there we rode the train around the park. This is the train that is robbed by outlaws on horseback. Anyway, one of the robbers used the line, "Don't worry, lady, this isn't Disneyland. We aren't going to rob you for real."

367 Anybody who votes for Clair Bear McCaskill is simply too stupid to be allowed near rotating machinery.

368 When you've been reduced to shaking down newlyweds for their wedding gifts, "logistics" excuses seem kinda thin.

369 I'll bet you one of Michelle's cheeseburgers that the stadium event is moved, for "logistical" purposes, ahem.

370 Maybe they should have a virtual convention and just claim that millions of people watched.

371 The Libs not attending the convention are just doing what they used to do - acting all moderate to get elected then back Pelosi and the left full bore.

What has been amazing these past 2 or 3 years is that a major portion of the Libs have quit trying to hide behind the "moderate" moniker and just openly espouse socialism in all its glory.

I say get the popcorn ready for election night on Nov 6.
