WATCH: San Diego’s epic firework fail

The Blaze reports:

Last night, tens of thousands gathered in and around San Diego Harbor for the Big Bay Boom fireworks show. The Glorietta Bay show is billed as one of the largest in the country and was supposed to be a 17-minute, pyrotechnic spectacular scheduled to start at 9pm. It wasn’t.

Instead of seeing a choreographed, computer-controlled fireworks show synched to music, people saw less than a minute of chaos. Thanks to a glitch in the system, all of the explosives ignited at the same time.

    Thus we see the end game of the United States under Commisar Obama if he is allowed to get away with his treasonous activities. May God keep us whole and safe, and allow us to vote him out of office and the rest of the progressives as well, this November.

    Pres Obama on the Moscow Hotline to PM Putin:

    “No Putin I did not permit Biden to play with the BUTTON; it was an accident there, it just blew up all at once…oh, yeah,…just like all of my policies…thank you Putin…”

    (Click, hangs up phone)

    (Considering, hand under chin): “Maybe I should let Biden play with the BUTTON after all; just for a few missile launches…say at Pelosi and Reid’s mansions?”

    LOL. What’s really funny is that the watchers never realized it was a screw up until way after the fact.  They thought it was a good thing by their hollering and clapping.  There is a message in that for you Californians.  It can come quicker than you think and be over before you know it’s started.
    An omen perhaps?

  • landofaahs

    It’s Bush’s fault.

  • landofaahs

    Just blame it on Bush, that seems to work every time.

    With all of Mitt’s flip-flopping I think he is in for a tough road.  I fear we are sunk either way.  Time will tell.  Roberts provided the last necessary nail.  There is only one solution but it will take a collapse to even get a few people to realize it, so I am prepping for travel(hoping not to have to).

    I live in San Diego and didn’t even know this happened. I was at a home in Del Mar watching no less that 5 beautiful displays at once!  They all lasted about 15-20 minutes! It was a patriotic feast of lights! Guess it pays to play in the suburbs!

    The best laid plans of mice and men…it must have been the politicians and central bankers in control of things….You know…the “Experts”.

  • mdkrause

    OH You beat me to it.  hahaha   I bet Palin also had something to do with it.   Conspiracy against San Diego by the GOP.

  • mdkrause

    Prob. what happened was Biden was allowed to push a button.

     A Computer or California. Just look at moonbeam to prove my point.

    It didn’t all go at the same time, but it looks like the “launch sequences”  were sped up by a factor of  about 100. Imagine there will be intense interest how it happened by any insurance company that might be on the hook under certain conditions.

    The computer that controlled  the fireworks was made in China.

    It was sabotaged by the Obama’s Liberal left idiots  who hated the biggest naval presence in San Diego harbor.

    Can we not have any more headlines with the word “fail” where it is used to clearly mean something other than the real definition of the word? These headlines with the word “fail” look like they were written by a jackass and not a serious journalist.

  • landofaahs

    You could say it’s Arnold’s fault or just any conservative white guy. 

  • landofaahs

    I’ll bet 10 to 1 if he did, he pushed the button that said “DO NOT PUSH”.

    The Pyrotechnists were probably union and were told due to cutbacks they would not receive an hourly rate but just a flate fee.

    They can’t run their state properly. Why would they be expected to properly execute a fireworks display?

    Kind of like Obama…. a big display and then…. NOTHING!

    Premature pyroelation.

  • Lioness

    The running joke is on OBAMA. For he is the ass who kept blaming Bush for all of our problems. It’s not whether Bush was a good president or not, it’s just a joke mocking OBAMA and his administration for placing the blame every where else. If something goes wrong it’s always someone else’s fault. Of course it’s clear the OBAMANATION administration is squarely at fault now. Lighten up man!

    Don’t forget Barney and Laura…They each had a hand/paw in the conspiracy too!!

    Sounds like California fireworks, last about as long as California Bailout funds… a state that demonstrates how to be frugal with other peoples money…..

  • Sandie

    That’s a good comparison…. LOL

    Because California is Barry’s state of bundlers and illegal money laundering! Ask Dianne Feinstein what happened to her campaign funds. Who IS Kamala Harris? and how does she know Tony West. How did Kam Kuwata die? There’s more fireworks in politics in that great state than the 4th of July debacle.

    It was incredible alright – It was incredibly stupid. We have reached the point in this country where incompetence is almost a virtue, or at least the norm.

     . . . let’s not discount the fact that the Koch Brothers and their minions were in town recently.  rumor has it that they donated a new computer to the harbor district.  luckily i’m safe up here in the San Luis Obispo area, but i do monitor attacks on my hometown ! ! !

  • landofaahs

    I’ll take my chances with the Koch bothers and leave you to your chances with obama and his coke brothers. )

    The Tea Party misses your spark Glenn. We are still here and we will be the difference in the November election, but it sure would energize everyone if you made an appearance now and then.
