Democrats Giving Away Tickets to Obama's Speech

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

The DeKalb Democratic Party sent out this message Thursday night.

DO YOU WANT TO GO TO CHARLOTTE AND BE THERE IN PERSON FOR THE PRESIDENTS"S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH?

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 are the rules:

Everyone who is at Manuel's Tavern or the Bibb County Democratic Party by noon on Friday, August 31 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 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6. 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 today.

Dear Diane As usual, like most intellectually challenged Liberals, your essay is seriously flawed. 1. No one has contended Barack Hussein Obama did not submit a budget. He did submit one and he did not get a single vote in the House or Senate from even a Democrat! So much for his budgeting prowess.Check the record and become informed. 2. It is the Democrat Senate that has not produced a budget in 3 years. Check the record, become informed. 3. Barack Obama has escalated the war in Afghanistan and has not funded it. So he is no different than George Bush on that issue. He is responsible for $5 Trillion in debt in 4 years, almost 1/3 of the total debt accumulated since our founding. 4.Leaders lead and do not cast blame. Losers whine like little school girls and cast blame in every direction. Barack Hussein Obama is a Chicago Politician steeped in the strategies of deceit and corruption. He is a Divider, not a Uniter and possesses no Leadership Skills. He hasn't met with his Job Council in 7 months and has held only 1 Cabinet Meeting during the same time. He should be prosecuted for being AWOL and he will certainly be voted out of office for being incompetent. Just like you and your essay, he has been measured, weighed and found sorely wanting. I will now retire to my Man Cave, have a nice crisp Chardonney and allow you to reflect on the fact you have met your betters in the matters of State.

Oh yeah.".. Obama is ineffective so I'll vote for him anyway because he thinks like me"? How sad. How do you fix poverty, you ask? Well since Lyndon Johnson's war on poverty in the 60's tons of $$ have been spent. The result? No real impact on the poverty rate. But the family unit has almost been destroyed in many minority communities as a result... furthering the cycle. When will you realize that big government is not the answer. Individual responsibility and freedom best address the ills of society.

This is an important election in defining the direction of America. We cannot provide things like welfare, health care and jobs with no MONEY! I have worked with the United Way, directed a program for runaway kids and been a guardian for abused children - so not a heartless person. People do not need more hand outs - that only results in more hands out. They need education and jobs. Jobs are going to foreign countries who do not have the added costs and restrictions that the U.S has. Our school boards have no money and cannot provide superior education without money. The national debt at an unprecedented level. All due respect and I had hope, but Obama had 2 years of democratic congress to push through anything he wanted -- all they pushed thru is health care program that we can't afford -- and stated that millions are coming from Medicare "WASTE"?? If they identified that much waste in Medicare years ago, why wait for Obamacare to fix it?? We need leaders who will balance the needs of the people with the economic challenges and GET CONGRESS TO WORK TOGETHER. While that goal may never be 100%, Romney/Ryan are not as divisive as the current administration, who constantly point fingers and call names. WE ARE AMERICA - not the clowns in office/congress. Please, Americans - stop listening to campaign propaganda and think for yourself!!
