In a sign of the effect the nationwide Tea Party movement is having on politics, both the Associated Press and Barack Obama mentioned throngs of protesters outside the Obama town hall meeting held this morning in Raleigh:
The welcome was in contrast to criticism Obama met as his motorcade made its way from the airport to Needham B. Broughton High School. Thick groups of protesters held signs that said "Obamacare is Socialism," "Politicians + Health Care Disaster," and "Hands Off Our Health Care."
In an ad lib from his prepared remarks, Obama mentioned the protesters he saw in Raleigh on his way to the town hall:
"There were some folks cheering, and then were some folks with some signs."
When your opponents acknowledge you, you know you're being effective. Good job Raleigh tea partiers!

He thinks he is in charge and winning and I do believe he is a dictator..or rather soon to be!!!
A TEA PARTY NEEDS TO BE FORMED OUTSIDE AT EVERY PLACE WHERE OBAMA INTENDS TO PIMP HIS DEATHCARE.
There has to have been a Freeper in that crowd who could provide an onsight report.

AP magic camera lens: becomes telephoto for clarity in snapping anti-GOP protests, becomes fuzzy wide-angle when snapping anti-Dem/Obama types.
Just wait Obama people are going to turn up in droves to protest what YOU want for America.......
If this was really a Tea Party event we won't have to worry about AP photos. The Tea Party Photos will show up soon enough.
Its just the beginning Obama. The american people are pissed, and that includes libs who voted for you but who also have the sense to know their health care and freedom is at jeopardy too by your fascist legislation.
We’ve got to keep showing up with very explicit signs wherever BO shows his face. We, the people, are getting to him, slowly but surely.
Wish I could have been there! Did you go?
“I’ll take the description of ‘thick groups of protesters’ as an impressive turnout.”
If it’s a liberal demonstratrion, they multiply people by ten. Conservative, they divide people by ten...the MSM “New Math”...
Wow he is off his rocker!!!
Now that's the North Carolina I know!
he is a communist. all of his friends have been socialist communists or islamics... and we put this couterfeit in office without even asking for proof that he was eligible to serve.
I pinged (above) a friend who I think was going. I will ping you if she responds.
My favorite sign for ozero.
