Obama to Speak at Centreville (VA) High School Saturday
Centreville Patch ^ | July 11, 2012 | Alexandra Mendoza

Posted on 07/12/2012 3:20:11 PM PDT by stratman1969

President Obama will be speaking at Centreville High School on Saturday, reportedly the last stop in a two-day campaign swing that will take him through Virginia.

Tickets to the campaign event are free but must be obtained beforehand. The Fairfax Obama for America office, located at 11215-P Lee Highway, will distribute tickets starting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are first-come, first-served. Tickets are also available at the Falls Church OFA Office at 7285 Arlington Blvd.
, Falls Church.

Doors at the high school will open Saturday at 2 p.m. Attendees should allow extra time for security checks.

Obama will spend two days, Friday and Saturday, traveling throughout Virginia on a campaign swing conducting grass-root events, according to his campaign. He will visit Richmond, Roanoke and Virginia Beach. The entire state of Virginia has emerged as a battleground state for the upcoming election.

Obama’s visit coincides with his campaign’s Voter Registration Weekend of Action, in which groups of campaign volunteers will meet at the Democratic National Committee Headquarters in Washington, D.C. and travel throughout Northern Virginia. Various locations will have volunteers helping to register voters for the November elections.

Obama has visited other Fairfax County locations, including an April 2011 visit when he spoke at the Annandale campus of Northern Virginia Community college about the deficit.

Obama has also made recent trips to Annandale and Falls Church.

Obama won Virginia in 2008 with a 6.3 percent margin over Republican nominee John McCain.

Speech at a high school but too busy for NAACP?

I’ve been wondering why he keeps going to high schools and community colleges...

...are the good taxpayers of Virginia donating the use of the gym to the Obama campaign?

Apparently we are. I wish to Heaven he’d stay out of our Old Dominion. The cleanup afterward is horrendous.

There is a “Welcome President Obama to Henrico” gathering at the Glen Allen Softball Complex. See http://www.facebook.com/events/429644477080951/.

Yup, 2 PM, then an hour or so, then traffic out of there ~ that'll be worse than the traffic into the site.

Here's my problem ~ we were all going to Ekoji Temple for Bon Odori starting at 5:30 PM ~and these guys are going to have New Braddock Road screwed up 'til midnight.

Wasn't enough for him to skip over the NAACP thing, but this? This is an outrage!

These facilities are all available for rent and politicians regularly rent space for similar events.

The Secret Service also has a say in where they go ~

Yup. And the Secret Service likes schools beacuse schools are generally designed to allow for controlled (and observed) entry and exit.

This is written as if anyone can just call up the DNC offices in Fairfax and show up at the event on Saturday. Ha! Fist, the organizers call known local Dems to fill up the venue. If that doesn’t fill the place, the public is allowed on a first-come, first-served basis. The campaign would close out the attendee rolls in time to do the necessary security checks.

Since Obama IS the sitting POTUS, those wishing to attend will each have to give their SS# and a quick FBI/DHS check will be run on each attendee. Then they get to stand in line for a couple of hours, waiting for their SS screening, at which they will show photo ID, before going into the venue to wait another hour or so for the star to appear.

This protocol is governed more by SS than the DNC or RNC or any presidential campaign. But WHO gets to attend is controlled by the parties/campaigns.

Actually Obama is going to the Walkerton Tavern (http://www.co.henrico.va.us/rec/recreation-centers-facilities/walkerton-tavern.html) which is near the softball complex. I think the venue holds maybe 200 people. Very small. The Obama campaign is calling it a ‘small gathering of grass roots supporters’. Not exactly true since the tickets were available to anyone willing to stand in line. Maybe University of Richmond was getting sick of all the disruption his visits were causing. Or the alumni and donors were getting sick of it.

I think the protestors are gathering at the softball complex.

Someone should film all and follow these “supporters” home and find out where the live. Their address should be posted for all to see. Remember the Tom Cruise movie “All The Right Moves” when the coach lost the football game?

He’s making several stops in Virginia (geez, I really am hating being a battleground state). One to Centreville and another to Henrico.

Looks like he’ll be here in Henrico in the morning and at Centreville in the afternoon.

Youns have fun out there today. Give 'em hell. And have lots of cameras to catch any bad behavior... by 'Rats, union goons, and any misbehavin' po-leece. Hopefully, your good humor and pretty faces will stall any bad behavior on their part before it happens.

I hope every patriot within fifty miles comes out to say “hi” to Zippy.

The protest pictures would spread like wildfire even if the LSM ignores it.

C’mon, Fairfax!!!

Head’s up!

Zero is running an hour *ahead* of schedule here in Richmond. Be advised he may be running ahead of schedule for the Centreville event. Get there early and give him h@ll!

It’s raining, thundering and lightning here. I think God is not pleased with the visit to the birthplace of Presidents by this pretender.

No rain. Jimmy Valentine’s brother, stratman1969, 3D-JOY, RonGKirby, and myself made it to the event. We all got there around 1pm. Zer0 arrived around 4pm. I’m sure stratman will have a full report with pics out sometime tonight or tomorrow.

Here’s my post, and I included the video walking with you when you went by the Obamabots with your sign.

http://maroonedinmarin.blogspot.com/2012/07/protesters-welcome-obama-to-centreville.html

After I got my car at the elementary school, I came by to see if you were still there, but you’d left, so I never had a chance to say goodbye and good seeing you (and everyone else).

I would dare to speculate nobody will be allowed to have any sharp object, no pens, no hair clips, absolutely no cellphones, no recording devices.

And perhaps each member of the audience will have a background check and finally a laser definition test that will scan for any explosive particulates.

To you two guys, all I can say is “Breitbart Lives!”

Thank you for being there.

When the President was in Fairfax County last Saturday, some anti-Obama Virginians showed up!

Yes we did. See post 32. Thanks for the youtube link.

Great! I copied the link off of facebook, so it’s getting some play. May Obama be soundly defeated along with his friends in Congress.
