All Hail Obama! Invesco Field acceptance speech includes miniature Greek temple

barack obama invesco field acceptance speech

On Thursday, Barack Obama will accept Athens' the Democratic Party's endorsement at Denver's Invesco Field on a set resembling a miniature Greek temple. A somewhat close-up is above (via CQ Politics' collection, link).

There really isn't much more to be said, except to point to ThinkProgress' lame attempt to downplay this by playing tu quoque. They point out that the 2008 Virginia Republican Convention was conducted with a backdrop featuring Greek columns (thinkprogress.org/2008/08/27/greek-columns-hypocrisy/). What they fail to note is that their setup resembles the Virginia State House (link).

UPDATE: If you go to 4:45 here there's a pan. There are two pair of large round columns on either end, with smaller square columns in the center portion, complete with bases and fillagres. I'll leave it up to architects to identify whether that's Greek, Roman, Romulan, Arugulan, Mordorian, or what.

Did it ever occur to you that that is a recreation of our CAPITAL??? Where MLK did the I HAVE A DREAM speech, on the anniversary of which Obama accepts the nomination? Did it occur to anyone to ask before mocking it as Greek theatre? even as you stop to note the Republican version of this was a RECREATION OF A STATE HOUSE?? This shows how uncharitably you have to see everything Obama does. Sad. And spiritually bankrupt.

MLK is just like Obama, except Obama hasn't accomplished anything in his career. Other than that, they are just like each other, including the communist affiliations. I have a dream too: that race hustling grifters like the Obamas never occupy the oval office. Is "spritually bankrupt" in reference to the rejection of the false messiah? Funny how the party of atheists/secularists (Dems) use the religion card when its suits their agenda. Obama favors late term abortions (infanticide) and racist affirmative action policies against whites, which is about as "spiritually bankrupt" as a politician can be. If you want to see spiritual insolvency, you only need to look at your candidate, comrade. Also, I just read Obama attacks our law enforcement by voicing his objections to 287(g). The emperor has no clothes, or respect for the laws or citizens of this nation. He is a self-denying mulatto crypto-muslim despot, and he will get what he deserves on election day.

Sad that the morally bankrupt republican hypocrites refuse to acknowledge that this stage is similar in theme and design to the 2008 Virginia Republican Convention.

Oh come on this is absurd. You can't throw a stone in D.C. without hitting a building with columns like this. The same goes for nearly every county courthouse, state capital and post office in America. Besides, the Bush campaign used a similar backdrop in the 2004 GOP convention. Don't believe me? Look at the pix for yourself: http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0808/Bushs_2004_temple.html

The 'Greek Temple' analogy preceded Lonewacko's reporting. It originated with those tools of the vast right wing conspiracy at Democrat HQ. Or ABC. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=5660266 Or MSNBC. Or Kos, or Wonkette. Take your pick. Democratic convention planners had misgivings before that. Repubs were the LAST to pick up on the story.

Obama's efforts to connect to the Republican Party, specifically Bush, and Dick Cheney, of the Halliburton Company, dates back to the Presidents Grandfather, Prescott Bush, and indeed Cheney was once an executive officer of Halliburton. The American military pounds Iraq with Artillary, bombs, and the like, destroying large sections of cities, and infra-structures, then Halliburton comes in to rebuild. Halliburton and Halliburton associated companies have raked in ten’s of billions. Obama is just like the BIG HALIBURTAN. Haliburton has contracted to build detention centers in the U.S. similiar to the one in Quantanammo Bay, Cuba. Halliburton does nothing to earn the Two Dollars for each meal an American Serviceman in Iraq eats. http://www.halliburtonwatch.org/ Halliburton was scheduled to take control of the Dubai Ports in The United Arab Emiirate. The deal was canceled when Bush was unable to affect the transfer of the American Ports. Now we see what some might suspect as similiar financial escapading from the Democrats. Two years ago, Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity gave a $50 million contract to a start-up security company - Companion- owned by now-convicted businessman (TONY REZKO) Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley, to train Iraqi power-plant guards in the United States. An Iraqi leadership change left the deal in limbo. Now the company, Companion Security, is working to revive its contract. Involved along with Antoin “Tony” Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here. LIKE FATHER LIKE SON -- Recently, Obama's campaign staff have been vetted by the IRS to disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming Tax Fraud charges — Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM "PATWANG-FWEEE" and disclose Obama's MUSLIM Farrakhan eat-with-the-Mafia mob connection to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan and Chicago's Trinity United Church are trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah. Oddly enough, Barack Obama, and his mentor Rev. Wright, failed to mention Planned Parenthood, an organization established by eugenicist Margaret Sanger expressly for the purpose of black genocide.
