Obama's Mile High Fantasy Flight

Dr. Bill Smith, ARRA Editor: My Opinion! Barack Obama's move to Mile High is an exercise in stagecraft and a smoke and mirror job for the American people.
  • First, it is an affront to the Hillary Clinton delegates who would have comprised half the room if Obama were to appear at the Pepsi Center.
  • It is a calculated move to force networks into the very real choice of only covering his speech on the final day - denying the American people a true look at what the Democrat's platform and policies are all about, and denying the American people a true look into the divided nature of the convention.
  • If Obama's choice results in the networks only covering one day, would they then feel obligated to curtail coverage of the GOP convention? If so, Obama's calculated move then denies the American people a fair look at John McCain.
  • This begs the question of the true nature of Obama's calculated decision. Is it because he wishes to keep voters in the dark over real issues and only provide them spectacle? Is it because he is afraid Hillary's supporters might not provide applause (or even boo) a speech in a room that wasn't guaranteed to be stacked with his zealous followers?
