Teabagger Protest Photo of the Day from NM Obama Event


There were only a handful of anti-whatever teabagger-type protestors outside today's Obama town hall at Rio Rancho High School, despite right-wing predictions there'd been a huge crowd of them. This is my favorite shot of them taken, of course, by Mary Ellen. Click on it for larger version.

Wow! Half or more of the utter HATE for Obama is just racism. So sad.

imagine the energy and focus that went into making this sign. The guy had to painstakingly paint each one of these letters. Probably with a beer in his hand. And rage in his mind.

I actually found the picture rather amusing. The gentleman on the left was a cretin but the sign on the right is rather interesting. It seems the extreme left and right can agree on one thing.

Yeah that's a great idea to end the Federal Reserve. Crazy fantasies like this are fed by the likes of coocoo Ron Paul who also wants to ditch the IRS. The amazing thing is that people buy into this sci-fi silliness.

The Albuquerque journal shows their true colours again with the first five photos of the protestors in the montage on their front page on the web.

Why is the guy with the sign hiding his face? Coward. I wonder where this guy's forefathers came from and I wonder why he thinks it matters. This is anti-American.

Sure-the Journal crams all those photos of the handful of teabaggers at the front of the queue. They don't include a single photo of the pro-Obama demonstrators who were there. In the paper version they only printed one color pic-the other was inside in black and white.

I am really enjoying the fact that the anti-Obama folks can't spell, notice federol reserve on her sign. It is al not ol. Maybe before they protest again, they might consider poster sign "spell Check"
