Republican Deer Smashes Obama Yard Signs
Fox News ^ | September 21, 2012 | Joshua Rhett Miller

Posted on 09/22/2012 7:10:17 AM PDT by PittsburghAfterDark

Rudolph the red-state reindeer?

A Texas couple determined to find out who had been damaging a sign in their front yard proclaiming their support for President Obama's re-election bid caught the offender on Wednesday. Tom Priem, a software support engineer in Austin, told FoxNews.com he and his wife, who live on a block where political signs dot front yards, were fed up with seeing only their Obama sign repeatedly defaced.

“The sign had holes poked in it like somebody had stuck a knife through it,” Priem said Friday. “At first I thought it was somebody who didn’t like Obama.”

Priem said he even called a city hotline to document the incident in case a more insidious offender was to blame. He couldn’t believe his eyes when his wife showed him the surveillance photo she snapped seconds after the campaign sign was destroyed - by a buck.

The varmint's vandalism began about 10 days ago and it’s unclear what the animal has against the sign.

I have the feeling that the sign had been marked by a few neighborhood K-9's and the deer was being territorial.

Either that or it's just one really smart deer.

The deer probably doesn’t have much use for stupid people either.

An engineer of any sort supporting the Obamadork?

Evidently, the “engineering” part didn’t really catch.

Must support Microsoft products.

Seriously???

You think that all those hippie looking Applebots hanging outside the Apple stores are natural conservative voters?

I would venture to say Republicans and conservatives use more MS or Android products than Apple products.

“At first I thought it was somebody who didn’t like Obama.”

I agree with you - smart deer who has more sense than he who put up the sign. The question is, if even a deer can figure it out, why does half the so-called superior life form on the planet have so much trouble?

“Tom Priem, a software support engineer in Austin”
I am assuming this is the case of a Californian who lost his job and had to come to Texas. So there you go. The voting record of liberals destroy their economies and they move to other states and then destroy theirs. Luckily, I have not seen one Obama sign in my Houston neighborhood. Saw a lot during 2008.

This will explain a LOT as to why Obama won the “yoot vote” in 2008

Yes, that is most likely the case, although do not rule out the great University of Texas (a very fine school BTW) also turning some native Texans to the dark side

Austin is over-run by Californians. They complain incessantly about how bad California has become but the first thing they want to do to Texas is turn it like California

I just don’t get it. You just saw the most beautiful state in the country (yes... Cali is ridicously naturally blessed with natural beauty and climate) be destroyed by liberal policies and you want to come to Texas and do the same?????

That about sums it up. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. It proves what a mental disorder liberalism truly is.

billyhilly have now been quoted, that they paid the deer. This goes deeper than knives. zer0 is said to be furious, and reports say it was commented TAKE A GUN, HECK TAKE ALL THE GUNS. Secret Service is refusing to become involved. Saying send someone else.

I want to start a software company, hire that 'hole, get him to relocate to, say, Montana, then pull the plug on the entire operation so he'd be out of a job. And that's just the reaction that I dare post.

I recommend the homeowners place a picture of Granny “Fauxcahontas” Warren next to the sign. Studies have shown that this will repel all sensate creatures, even those of limited intelligence (except Massachusetts democrats, whose lack of intelligence is unmatched).

First off, the people that support Apple are not what I would call conservative.

Second, Apple’s operating systems are like an electronic nanny. You can do whatever you want as long as it’s exactly what Apple has already decided you can do.

I’m an “Apple Bot” (whatever the hell that is), and I’m very conservative. Sometimes, it’s best not to paint with a wide brush, especially when you don’t know what you are talking about.

We “Apple Bots” happen to like Mac products. We don’t work with PC’s (Pieces of Crap)

Basil,

I am hardly painting with a wide brush. Quite the contrary. I was responding to the OP who said that because the protaginist in the story was a democrat/liberal he MUST be a Microsoft user.

My point was, you could hardly make that assumption as Apple probably attracts an equal/higher number of democrats and hence that is not a valid data point.

Cheers!
