Conservatives Protest Obama Campaign Stop

Obama ventured into Northern Virginia on Saturday for a campaign event in Centreville, drawing several hundred protesters that demonstrated just how much things have changed in Virginia since 2008. Last time around, Northern Virginia localities like Fairfax County were Obama’s core political turf. This time, it’s a contested battleground.

This turned out to be a lot friendlier than I expected, with only a few minor instances where Obama supporters displayed any visible anger towards their political opponents. For the most part there was quite a bit of acceptance of differing viewpoints and even some friendly conversations between Obama and Romney supporters, particularly when they both were driving cars with Virginia license plates. That’s good to see, and speaks well of the Commonwealth. Hopefully the out-of-state folks that have descended on Virginia to help out the Obama campaign will come away from that experience learning a few things.

I’d expect Obama’s going to see quite a bit more of this sort of reception each time he has a campaign event in Virginia, and most of them will be pretty much like this one. They’re fun events to participate in when folks on both sides demonstrate some civility.

    Getting questions from people about the sign that says “white tickets” and figure it’s easier to post a comment about this than respond to each individual email I may get about it.

    All sorts of people were pointing the “white tickets” sign out to me yesterday and I didn’t think it was a big deal. They’d say it’s racist and I’d be scratching my head wondering how that would be. So there’s a white ticket, and in order to get in one of the doors you need one of those. Hardly notable, I thought.

    Then I pondered about it a bit and realized that the “white ticket” allowed you to get in the front door of the school. There must then be other tickets that would allow you to go in other doors, and they certainly would have to look different than the “white ticket”, so I deduced that the other tickets, which would be something other than white — colored — gave you permission to go in other entryways to the school such as the one in the back that Obama used to go in. Hence “white tickets” let you go in the front door, and “colored tickets” let you go in the back.

    Not well considered, at all. I’m sure Rosa Parks would be real proud of this setup.

    They did the same thing at Morans town hall a couple of years ago. The “regular” folks had to wait in line to go through the front doors but SEIU went through the back doors and didn’t have to wait in line.

    Obama event and there’s no issues. Romney event in Mechanicsville, and there’s vandalism from the left. Maybe this election season in Virginia isn’t going to be as gentlemanly as I hoped.

    It’s not the election you need to worry about, Greg, it’s the aftermath, regardless of who wins.
