Democrats In A Panic

10 May

Looks like the Democrats could very well move the Democratic convention out of North Carolina.

“Democrats who already were queasy about the site of their national convention could be excused after Tuesday’s election in North Carolina if they asked, “Tell me again just why we’re going to Charlotte this year?” In fact, many Democrats privately are asking exactly that after the state’s voters overwhelmingly approved a measure outlawing not just same-sex marriage — which already was illegal in North Carolina — but also any form of civil unions. Almost immediately after the vote, more than 20,000 people signed a “move the convention” petition being pushed by a New York group called Gay Marriage USA. And Twitter accounts lit up with hundreds of angry tweets demanding the party pull out of Charlotte.

And it’s not as if things were going swimmingly for convention organizers before Tuesday’s vote. Fundraising was lagging with the Democrats’ decision not to accept money from corporations, making it much more difficult to reach the needed $36.6 million. That led to more pressure on labor unions to pony up. But they would rather spend their money on grassroots efforts and are still miffed that the party decided to go to a “right to work” state and a city with few unionized hotels.”

Looks like the United States of America Democratic Political Party is in MELTDOWN mode. Prepare the popcorn!
