If you no clue about what I've posted in this topic, then I suppose we are done with the discussion.
If it were just him in town for a brief stump speech, cool. But what about the other gazillion senators, congressional representatives, gubners, mayors, etc....you can't be serious?

Exactly... Obama has been here before and we didn't shut down the city. Half of Congress will be here, not sure why this is being viewed through a conspiracy lense.

What about them? If people were going to go after them then they wouldn't pick an event such as this. A conspiracy theory would be this notion that terrorists are headed to charlotte to off every political hack in the US government. Maybe you guys don't listen to what you are saying.

Hardly. Since they seem to be making more appearances in a crowd control capacity I was wondering if they might be used here as well.

There was an attack at the DNC why didn't you have more police on hand?

Chief of Police: *shrugs* "This is crazy... never thought it would happen with all these cameras and people"

some people want to attack "us" and this is the perfect event to get recognition. People are coming from all over the US to protest because they know the cameras will be on Charlotte and Tampa.

I doubt anyone is preparing to pick off every member of congress... lol.
