Conceited Obama Already Spending Millions On Election Night Celebration
Barack Obama took a lot of ribbing for setting up Greek columns on the larger-than-life set of his nomination acceptance speech in Denver two months ago.
But at least he knew for certain then that when the ballgame was over — he was going to be the Democratic candidate for president.
Now, with the Nov. 4 general election still 12 days away, the front-running Illinois senator is already planning a massive ego-fulfilling election Night celebration that will put his Invesco Field party to shame.
Kanye West, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead … Senator Barack Obama? The Democratic presidential candidate has booked the same area in Chicago’s Grant Park that hosts several of the stages at the annual Lollapalooza Festival, and if early estimates hold (250,000+), the crowd in his hometown on the evening of November 4 could best the daily totals put up by the granddaddy of alternative-rock festivals.
A huge stage is being constructed in Chicago’s Grant Park, where Obama hopes to declare victory before a cheering throng that could dwarf the one at the Democratic convention. Back then, “only” 80,000 fans were in attendance that night. This time, it could be hundreds of thousands in the park and its surroundings — closer to Berlin in July than Denver in August.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the price tag of the fanfare has been pegged at $3 million +, to be picked up by the Obama campaign. Mayor Richard Daley reportedly suggested Obama use a cheaper venue, but was turned down, by the stuck on itself Obama campaign organization.
Asked how many people the campaign was anticipating in Grant Park, Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor quipped, “At least 10.”
“We have a lot of supporters who have given their time and effort to the campaign, and we want them to share in the election night with us. We fully expect to surpass the 350,000 people who turned out for the Pope”.
It is now more obvious than ever that Obama is a an insecure narcissist who needs flunkies, yes men and the adulation of a massive crowd at all times, to feed his huge ego. He honestly thinks it is his “due”.
