The official reason for the cancellation of Joe Biden’s visit to Tampa the same week that city hosts the GOP convention was given as consideration for Tampa having to deal with possible damage from Tropical Storm Isaac. In the meantime, the Obama campaign has decided to push full ahead with campaigning during the GOP convention – a rather unusual (some might even say rude) move for a sitting president:
President Obama this week will take the unusual step of campaigning during the opposing Party’s convention.
Vice President Biden was even scheduled to be in Tampa Monday, the day the Republican convention begins in the city, but has cancelled his appearance.
The reason given is that the very considerate people in Obamaland want the city to be able to focus entirely on dealing with Hurricane Isaac, which is supposed to pass nearby in the Gulf of Mexico, and not have to worry about the logistics of hosting the vice president.
But maybe the Obama people thought better of such an obviously classless move – even for the Obama campaign – or became concerned Biden might pull some buffoonery that would provide red meat for the conventioneers. LINK
The question UlstermanReport.com readers have though, is if the Obama campaign will still attempt some version of distraction politics in the coming days as warned to us by Insider last week:
That Biden visit to Tampa got my wheels spinning. What the hell are they up to? How far is Biden willing to go to remain relevant? To stay on the ticket? So I put some feelers out to the WH. Got lots of people willing to talk and share these days.
…I’m giving you and your readers a heads up here. False flag. The real deal. They will try and control it but make it look uncontrolled. Dangerous. Make it reflect poorly on the Republicans and their supporters. A dangerous and desperate operation here. Even a dimwit like Biden has to know how dangerous.
…Will update if more becomes available. The Old Man is on it now. Pushing heavy influence to deflect. One or two secure media sources made aware. The Romney people will be alerted, though they might have already been thinking along the same lines. Trying to confirm that now. If this thing is legit, we are going to try and shut it down within the next 48-72 hrs. Won’t say more on that.
