A political analyst and New York Times bestselling
author says it's increasingly evident that 2012 will be a far cry
from 2008 for President Obama at the Democratic National
The Associated Press has reported that desperate Democrats
handed out tickets to students and volunteers in a scramble to fill
seats at the 74,000-seat Bank of America stadium in Charlotte,
North Carolina for President Barack Obama's Thursday night
acceptance speech. Then on Wednesday, the Democrats announced that
the acceptance speech would be moved to a smaller location
indoors because of weather.
Jerome Corsi, a tea party activist and author of The Great
Oil Conspiracy, says doling out seats to just about
anyone is a far cry from the "hope and change" fervor that
permeated the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.
And indoors attendance has not even been all that good.
"The Democrats have put the delegates up in the bleachers
because they have so few people attending this convention," he
observes. "The truth is I think millions of Americans have seen
through the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, the lies. This is a
statist Democratic Party. They want central government planning,
just as much as any communist government wanted it."
And Corsi suggests Obama will not be able to truthfully
respond "yes" to the Republican question, "Are we better off than
we were four years ago?"
"I expect the flowery language and the lying to continue, even
though Obama cannot show that we are better off than we were four
years ago," he tells OneNewsNow. "By any objective criteria, that's
not the case."
If Obama wins, Dr. Corsi believes the country would be headed
into a depression that will make the 1930s look like a yard
