This election isn’t just a choice between a different set of policies. The road has come to a decisive fork. Obama’s supporters have made it obvious what kind of country we will live in if we choose the left-hand path.
In Lake County, Florida:
Police are searching for the vandals who apparently torched more than a dozen campaign signs and American flags in a Howey-in-the-Hills veteran’s yard.
William Overbay said someone ignited the flags and signs, which supported Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, that he had lined along his yard. The vandals also painted a sign on his driveway reading “Obama for life,” at his DuPont Circle home, Overbay said.
Overbay, a vet from the Vietnam era, sees the bigger picture:
“To give that many years for my country and to see it desecrated in such a despicable way angers me. We have freedom of speech and to desecrate any kind of signs is absolutely despicable and a violation of the constitution of the United States.”
We are not dealing with people who have any regard for the rights enshrined in the Constitution.
In Alta Loma, California:
Someone keyed the word “Obama” into two cars and slashed seats in another outside a residence that had Mitt Romney campaign signs.
A little irony: Ken Slown, owner of one of the vehicles, is actually an Obamunist.
He explained … that he and his wife — both currently unemployed — are staying with her parents and it’s her parents who support Romney.
I wonder if the wife has a faded Hope & Change poster on her bedroom wall.
A neighbor, who also has a Romney/Ryan sign in their front yard, were also hit. “Obama” keyed in the hood and on the black gate of an SUV.
If you’ve seen more Obama than Romney bumper stickers, the reason is that Romney supporters don’t key cars.
In Racine, Wisconsin:
The Racine Tea Party’s “Rally for Jobs” kicked off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday inside the old Sam’s Club at 6200 Regency West Drive.
Before the event could get under way, though, organizers say a truck affixed with “Obama” stickers drove through the parking lot and dumped quantities of nails.
Needless to say, if a Romney supporter ever did something like this, it would be national news.
Where Frank Luntz finds his undecided voters remains a mystery. A stark choice between high and low should not be hard to make.
Hope & Change applied to a car hood.
