Northern Virginia Tea Party Protests Barack Obama, Supports Mitt Romney In Centerville, 14 July 2012

Stacy McCain already laid down the 5 W’s on the protest yesterday, but here are more pictures to keep the Tea Partiers stoked.
Clicking on images will open them at full size in a blank tab:

 The Tea Partiers mustered in the parking lot of a nearby elementary school, so that parking would not be a challenge.
The guy carrying this sign had a megaphone, and was completely unafraid to use it.
 Shortly after 1 O’Clock yesterday afternoon, there was a line going from the front of the school to the street, down a block to the south, and back into the parking lot.
 With only about a day’s lead, the Tea Partiers were outnumbered, but completely undaunted. The Obama supporters were mixed in at the start, but kind of melted away after a while.
This is one of the pictures that I sent to my Twitter stream. Having a smart phone with a full charge and a Twitter client like Seesmic is very handy for events like this.
Some of the Tea Partiers braved the Commie radiation emitted by the Obama supporters. Brave souls, indeed. There was a curious absence of patriotic emblems amongst the Obama supporters. That may have had to do with security restrictions for the presidential visit.I hope that when Romney runs for re-election in 2016, bringing flags and such to a political event will encouraged.
I thought this was the best sign I saw. Chains we can be leavin‘.
I’ll have mine iced, and hold the sugar. Get off me: I’m not a born Southerner, and I don’t need diabetes.
 Also a well-done sign.
Good sign, too many words. Brevity.
 Overall, he is hiding his wretched, boring mediocrity.
 Hope isn’t hiring, but it still wants credit, because if hope could have just told its story a little more hopefully, it was hoped it could have hopped to success.
She knew this; you know this; I know this; the thousand lemmings across the street awaiting the Pied #Occupiper, not so much
Nice colors, and right about the limit for content, in my estimation.
The oft-repeated point about being conservative and being lovely.
No mistaking the neon yellow.
These were the interns from the bus, of which Mataconis still disapproves, AFAIK.

    No legitimate tea party would support Mitt Romney.

    Mitt Romney’s George Washington compared to the other guy.

    -Thanks for taking the pics so we could see what happened – the MSM certainly didn’t.

    -You wrote: I hope that when Romney runs for re-election in 2016….

    Bite your tongue!  If Willard wins, he’ll just be keeping the seat warm for a real conservative.
