Skip to comments.What We Didn't See in Santa Cruz: "Obama 2012" Bumper Stickers
Posted on 06/16/2012 7:41:02 PM PDT by ProtectOurFreedom
Our daughter graduated with a BS in Biology this morning from the University of California at Santa Cruz. I did not see a single "Obama 2012" bumper sticker today -- not one!
We drove about 40 miles from home to the campus and saw many hundreds or thousands of cars on Highways 85, 17, and 1; the local Santa Cruz streets; throughout campus; in the campus parking structure; and in the parking lots on campus. We walked quite a distance on campus and didn't spot a single Obama sign on any buildings, bus shelters, housing units, dorms, or student bulletin boards. It was stunning.
Not only that, we saw only one crusty and faded Obama 2008 bumper sticker as well -- they've all been scraped off.
There's probably no hope of capturing California, but this sure is an encouraging sign. Huzzah!

That’s good news. The last time I was in Santa Cruz it seemed to be a totally left-wing town.
If even the denizens of the People’s Republic of Santa Cruz aren’t for him, he’s really in deep doo doo.
Interesting! I’ve seen maybe a dozen or so in Silicon Valley.
Forgot to mention - I haven’t seen any Obama 2012 bumper stickers in the Morgan Hill/Gilroy area either. There are a lot fewer Obama 2008 stickers than there were a few years ago as well.

Sadly, that's not our experience. I still see plenty. < |:(~
The remarks tonight on yahoo regarding the illegal dream act nonsense are startling — you can’t find ONE positive comment for him. If they make one, they get so many thumbs down they have to pull them.
People are mad. They’re out of work, or they know people struggline and out of work, and then they see this dumbo coming in and pulling this political stunt. They are not fooled, perhaps, this time.
I still don’t have high expectations, but the tide could be starting to turn.
I have seen dozen of Obama 2012 in Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Los Altos.
I saw one here in NW Arkansas not long ago. Only one so far.
I’ve seen four or five polls on the illegal dream act from CBS in LA to the WSJ to some small local TV stations. They are all running 80% against! He stepped in it big time...again.
Still is. I've always called Santa Cruz, "The last bastion of hippiedom." Notice, they've still got the VW bugs and vans and longhairs riding bicycles everywhere. I guess Obama's so bad, even the hippies don't like him anymore.
I see a lot of them up here in the Portland area. Then again, this is where the people who are too kooky for California escape to.
Second of all, thanks for the encouraging news!
I just spent nearly 2 weeks in Fresno, CA, driving to and from the SF Airport. I didn’t see any Obama stickers either throughout our travels — not even old ones. I saw Ron Paul placards everywhere.
What I did see were hundreds of people in the Central Valley begging and pushing shopping carts full of junk around on the streets. People were begging at every stop light and in every median. People were posted at all of the driveways to Home Depot. Signs ranged from “Help with funeral” to “My mother and I are just trying to make it”. It’s very sad.
Obama is undoubtedly not left-wing enough for them.
The Bay Area still a Socialist stronghold, regrettably.
