    The Obama campaign was forced to scramble after the University of Virginia rejected a request to hold a rally on campus next week. In another hiccup, the campaign late on Friday canceled Vice President Biden’s plans to visit Tampa, Fla., next week, which is hosting the Republican National Convention. The campaign cited concerns connected to a looming hurricane. Read & Comment

    Probably because they heard they had to provide all the security for "free". Illinois is still trying to get back the $50,000 they've been owed since 2008 for his "hometown" rally in Springfield. Doubt they ever get it since anyone from Chi-town knows that Springpatch doesn't exist.

    There's a good article in the related articles column, that Obozo is intentionally making the crowds at his rallies smaller to save on security

    Yeah right like he pays for it

    Catpower, just another scam. He wants to hide the fact that people are losing interest in him. I said it before and i'll say it again. The silent majority is not going to be silent this election. Mike.

    They (The DNC) doesn't want Biden speaking in Florida or anywhere else for that matter.

    Wasn't he offered a different venue but turned it down because it wasn't collegiate enough? So,it's not the speech, or the audience but the photo/video opp he's looking for?

    "They (The DNC) doesn't want Biden speaking in Florida or anywhere else for that matter."


    Joe would slip up by stating the Republicans would be forcing Floridians to take swimming lesson so they could make it back to Cuba!!
