Dems Giving Away Tickets to Obama's Speech

You need to be at Manuel's Tavern by noon Friday.

Dunwoody Democrats have a chance to see President Barack Obama's acceptance speech in person at next week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC.

The DeKalb Democratic Party sent out this message Thursday night.


In Atlanta: Manuel's Tavern, 602 N Highland Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

In Macon: Bibb County Democratic Party, 835 Forsyth St. Suite A, Macon GA 31201

Here's the rules:

Everyone who is at Manuel's Tavern or the Bibb County Democratic Party by noon is eligible for two tickets. Arrive early if you want, but it won't give you a better chance to win. Just be there by 12 noon!

If less than 50 people arrive, everyone will get a pair! If more than 50 folks arrive, we will do a random drawing to determine our winners.

There is no cost involved. We're not selling the tickets, we're giving them away.

Since we're not selling tickets, you can't sell them either! If you sell your tickets to someone else, they will be deactivated.

For planning purposes, we expect that President Obama will speak at 8pm on Thursday. To insure that you are in your seat for the speech, you should arrive at the stadium that afternoon. There will be strict security at the event.

Your trip to Charlotte to see the President's historic speech begins tomorrow.

KTCOREY August 31, 2012 at 09:51 PM
What a rotten lie!!! The libs aren't giving tickets away...they're paying the losers on welfare and the illegal aliens to take them and promising benefits after the election! VIVA LA ROMNEY/RYAN!

I am so jealous. I live in Northampton county, PA, where there seem to be a lot of BHO supporters. Damnit do I miss Atlanta! Have fun with this, guys!

Teri it is really simple. The polls are reported mostly by the MSM and you know they lean a little toward OBUMMER and tend to skew the figures a little in his favor.

They are ALREADY busing in 20K Muslims....THAT is gonna be a show......

I love David Parker's comment above. Cynthia needs to make sure to come back to this site and post updates for us all. I can't wait for the report. 1). Complain if they ask for an ID but show one of course; 2) Ask where your swag bag is and IF it contains a condom or a coupon for free birth control; LOOK for Hannah Giles & James O'Keefe who were the undercover couple who in disguise as a pimp & a Ho & went to the ACORN clinic to see about about an abortion for the under-age girl. Their video this time interviewing DNC supporters Is gonna be great!!!

Hey guys whoever gets these tickets I hope you don't do anything that would reflect badly on the repubs. Here's a suggestion, whenever Obama starts to speak all of you just stand up and turn your backs on him. No words or posters, just the turning of your backs will say it all.

Just read another story out of South Carolina. The Democrats are guaranteeing the Stadium will be a full capacity, for the Great Ones' speech. Now I understand how they will manage it. I wonder what other cities have bars as designated ticket brokers/distributors?

Tickets to any obama speech = toilet paper as best use
Lacey September 04, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Can some body tell me where I can get two tickets to see obama at charollte nc on thursday?
Nancy September 04, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Retaliation is what the liberals do, not conservatives. Don't do anything that liberals could point to as negative. No booing. If you have to be there, just stand there in silent protest. Leave the rude and obnoxious for Obama supporters.
M Miller September 04, 2012 at 09:14 PM
Keep bashing Obama. But don't read today's retail business headlines. Who wants to hear good news now that the whole country is supposed to be imploding from such a "failed" presidency . (Reuters) - Nearly all U.S. retailers posted better-than-expected sales gains in August at stores open at least a year as parents and students wrapped up back-to-school purchases, setting the stage for a strong third quarter. August same-store sales rose 3.6 percent at retailers tracked by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S, trumping forecasts for a 2 percent rise. The results exclude teen retailer Zumiez Inc (ZUMZ), which reports numbers later Thursday. "It's a much stronger back-to-school season than even the most optimistic analyst could have forecast," said Joel Bines, managing director of AlixPartners' retail practice.

I pray you are right. With all the cheating ALLOWED the Dem-wits could win. Check this out : http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=GqMVxeZhflI&feature=player_embedded# . No wonder Al Franken is the MN senator. Our country is is serious trouble.
Dave September 05, 2012 at 02:37 PM
So did Patrick Rafinni, usually very quick. He must have missed Drudge, as he just tweeted from Charlotte. 17 minutes ago. Patrick Ruffini ‏@PatrickRuffini Democrats were trying to give away tickets to Obama stadium speech as far away as Macon, GA: http://bit.ly/NcDm39
Tony Spera September 05, 2012 at 04:20 PM
I know that Obama loves his country very much...... The only problem is.....his country is Kenya! Also remember that Obama did not give the order to get Obama...... Oops, I mean Osama. It was George Bush.... Remember he said, " he wanted Osama " Dead or Alive" Any president who won't salute the flag of the United States, who minimilizes our military's sacrifices, who golfs more than Tiger Woods, and who picks a moron for a vice president........ Well as My man Clint Eastwood said, " We gotta let him go!"
Mally Malus September 05, 2012 at 04:53 PM
The big question: WHY DID THEY MOVE OBAMAS SPEECH INDOORS? GOD controls lightening, not the bilderberg. Remember to tax the rich, like george soros, warren buffet and bill gates.
A concerned American September 06, 2012 at 03:15 PM
Dear Lord, I pray that you will protect us from the hatred and ignorance of the people on this site. I pray that they educate themselves, stop watching Fox News and open their minds. Help them udnerstand that they may not like everything that a president does but they need to look at the larger picture to protect the American dream, and to protect it citizens from being brainwashed by the large corporations who are fighting hard to maintain their control. I asked this in Jesus' name. Amen
Gray Wolf September 06, 2012 at 03:47 PM
Amen, Bro! I say this as a confirmed agnostic. The hatred and negativity spewed by the voters brainwashed by the GOP/TP is enough to make you weep for our country.

Anyone here going to Manuel's tonight? Bring your smart phone and you can participate in this: www.heartbyte.com/events/acceptance-speeches.html

Cynthia - did you make it to the convention? What was your experience there? Please update us - I am sure there are a lot of people curious about how it went. Tanks so much.
conilynda September 08, 2012 at 01:47 AM
Cynthia: I thought you were going to report back to us on the convention? Are you out there? Did you make it home? Please give us an update. The gall of the DNC to strut three movie starlets who make millions of $$$ per movie to try and win over young women voters. Don't these idiots women realize what fools they made of themselves? Average women in America want to work, move out of their parents homes, be independent, pay for own apt/house, buy shoes, clothes and handbags; they want to date men/women w/a job and go on dates; they want to own computers & sit at wifi cafes and check out men there & do planning & homework. The three dumb broads (starlets) at the last night of the DNC did what for whom? Oh, they got their egos fed by all the mesmerized dumb-asses in the audience. BigFdeal! By the way, Obama's speech sucked just like his presidency. Vote the failed POTUS OUT! Women nor anyone else for that fact can afford four more of this crap called hope and change.
conilynda September 08, 2012 at 01:55 AM
Obama is controlled by big corps. BP, GE, Wall St are his biggest donors. Google it if you don't believe me. GOP wants women working so they can buy their OWN birth control and abortions. GOP wants women to be independent. GOP wants people to marry, have children, work, live the American Dream. Dems want women, men, everyone dependent upon the teat of the gov't dole from cradle to grave. Look at Dem policies; they mandate, infiltrate, regulate every aspect of your life - what you eat, the car you drive or can't drive, what lightbulb you will buy. They encourage coveting, race-bating, hate, jealousy. What's "fair" about 47 million people NOT paying fed taxes? How's that fair to those of us who do pay taxes? Romney/Ryan want to stop Obama's wasteful spending, save Soc Sec, save medicare (Obama has already raided that for Obamacare). Do you really want bureaucrats in DC deciding YOUR personal healthcare choices? Well, that is what you will get. Remember this "Concerned American". When the government politicians GIVE you things; they can TAKE those things away. You need to google things you question by GOP, Foxnews or whatever people say. Find the truth on your own as it appears you have been bamboozled into believing hope and change from Obama is a good thing. See the movie: 2016 Obama's America. Go to the site, check out the trailer 2016themovie.com & runawayslavemovie.com to see your plantation. Wake Up Lemming. Google that if U don't know what it is.
conilynda September 12, 2012 at 12:39 PM
I agree with Joanne & truthdetector.
conilynda September 12, 2012 at 12:41 PM
You're funny and right.
