by Lone SharkNow that it’s been confirmed that Vice President Joe Biden will be in Tampa on Monday and Tuesday of next week- the first two days of the GOP Convention, we really have to scratch our heads and ask what Biden’s and the Obama administration’s motives are for pulling this kind of classless publicity stunt. Of course, it’s not as if this administration has in any way carried itself with class for the past three and a half years, but I digress.
Of all the 57 states that Biden could have chosen to visit next week, Biden is now set to host a campaign rally in Tampa on Monday, and no doubt DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will also have a prominent role in the “counter-convention” that will be going on throughout next week. But aside from wantonly attempting to steal some of the spotlight and attention from Republicans during convention week, was this move by Biden intended to be a provocative one?
Given the violence that’s already occurred with #OWS, suspicious activity within the vicinity of the Republican convention and the recent threats made by the New Black Panther Party against Republicans who will be attending the convention, is it really so far flung to believe that the atmosphere will now be even more ripe than it already was for ugly confrontations and incidents of violence? And gee, doesn’t the possibility exist that the ensuing media coverage of such incidents could be distorted and framed to make Republicans/conservatives/tea parties look bad?
I’m just sayin’.
