Where are the Obama bumper stickers?

Posted on 10/15/2012 8:59:41 AM PDT by HalTa

During the Democrat convention, it was noted that the various speakers touted the slogan "Osama's Dead, GM is Alive" more than TWENTY TIMES.

It is my opinion that this slogan was going to be their rallying cry for Obama;s reelection.

The events in Libya have thrown a monkey wrench into this GRAND PLAN. I'll bet there is a Printing Company somewhere in the United States {or China} that is sitting with Millions of "Osama's Dead, GM is Alive" bumper stickers in their warehouse.

Driving through the back roads in Georgia, I can tell you we have seen dozens of Romney signs and nary a single BO sign.

We saw ONE yesterday as we came home from church.

It's the first we've seen in maybe 2 years ... SW Pa.

(PS .. it was an Ohio tag)

So far here in N.Georgia I have seen ONE democrat sticker.
I’m sure in Atlanta you’d see a lot more.

I see “Obama stickers” but not many are polite.

I live in L.A. Four years ago this time it seemed as though every other car had an Obama bumpersticker on it. Tons of yards signs as well. This year, practically NOTHING. You have to actually be on the lookout to spot an Obama bumpersticker. I’m on the freeways every day. I drive past downtown and pass by South Central on the Harbor Freeway-—the most heavily Dem neighborhoods in all of LA. I still hardly ever see an Obama bumpersticker. There is no obamamania here like there was four years ago. Not saying that Obama will lose CA. I am saying there is absolutely no enthusiasm whatseover for Obama especially compared to four years ago.

I have seen ONE Romney sign in our town. No bumper stickers. Lots of signs for local elections.

People are afraid. A relative told her husband to take off the RR sticker they had received in the mail. She was afraid the car was going to be keyed.

They are here in Madison, WI, at about 30% of the frequency of “Recall Walker” stickers last year. Most are those white ones with the tiny blue letters in the middle. Hard to read.

I have also seen a half dozen or so “I Heart Obamacare” stickers. Unintentionally funny?

We were just talking about that the other night. There really aren't ANY bumper stickers here in our part of Columbus Ohio.

We decided the conservatives don't want to get their cars vandalized by the libtards, and that theres a strong silent tide coming to wash the turds out of Washington.

In Malibu and the West Valley, I’ve seen a few “Obama-Biden ‘12” stickers. Not as many as in ‘08, but still a few. I always try to get a look at the driver; I want to see what lunacy and idiocy look like outside the asylum...

Haven’t seen very many.

Saw a car a few days ago that still had an old 0bama-Biden sticker on it, and also on Friday I saw a woman in Walmart wearing an 0bama ‘08 T-shirt.

Millions of Obama 2012 hoodies, T-shirts, underwear will be seen on future newscasts in Zimbabwe, Sudan covering the starving poor.

I wonder if the person that had the contract to print this stuff had the money to throw down the toilet?

Did that this weekend and you're right. There were some huge anti Obama bill boards along I75, too. One said something like "Obama foriegn Policy: analyze till you're paralized, the apologize."

Driving from Maryland to Florida I saw 1 Obama and 6 Romney bumper stickers.

In SE Florida for almost 2 weeks I’ve only seen 1 Obama and 2 Romney bumper stickers.

It seems EVEN the old ones have been peeled off. I find it especially interesting that a sitting President doesn’t have more!!!

Down here in San Diego, it is the same. I am here on vacation for a month, and thought sure this would be Obamamanialand. I have seen only 3 Obama bumpers stickers in two weeks, and one of those was a 2008 one still on the car.

I used to live in Darrell Issa's district, so I didn't expect to see any over there, but here on the coast, I thought there would be many Obama signs. Also, the only yard signs we see are for local contests, nothing national.

Interesting. Romney has a home in San Diego. I wonder if that makes a difference. BTW I was at the San Diego Zoo a few weeks ago, saw more Romney bumperstickers than Obama bumperstickers on the freeway and in the zoo paking lot.

Same here in Southwest Florida. I was just discussing this with my wife yesterday. Romney/Ryan yard signs everywhere while there are none for Obama.

I think the enthusiasm gap is huge. Certainly bigger than the MSM media will allude.

There are plenty of signs around here. In fact in one town that is usually plastered in dem signs - RR signs are running about 10 to 1 .

As to your comment about people being afraid - unfortunately you’re right, and I am one of them. My daughter is the only white kid on her school bus and she had problems on the bus back in ‘08 - I’m not putting out any signs for the first time in about 20 years. I fear for her safety and sanity. and I will be driving her to school the day after the election - and the rest of the week if necessary.

I hate it, I truly do.

I have an “Impeach Obama” sticker on my vehicle that’s been there since early 2010. Since then I’ve driven to the east and west coasts from Knovxille, TN. In all of those nearly 50,000 miles I’ve received several compliments and no vandalism, even though two of my destinations were Davis, CA and Boston, MA.

I typically travel Monday through Friday and I commented about the absence of Pro-Obama signs around the U.S.

In the past month, I’ve been to New Hampshire, Connecticut, Georgia, Wisconsin and Ohio. I live in Western PA. Very few bumbler stickers or yards touting the Messiah. I hope this is a sign of good things to come.

I saw my first ever Obama Biden 2012 bumper sticker on the back of a educator’s car on the way to dropping off my kids to school this morning. This is in South Forsyth County north of Atlanta. Otherwise it is deathly quiet for the Obots on the north side of the metro area.

At that minimal Omaba frequency, looks like RR are going to win in WI.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I always thought SouthWEST Florida was one of the more conservative and GOP regions of the state. More midwestern retirees than East Coast retirees who tend to settle on the Southeastern part of the state in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties.

A few here and there in Northern Virginia =about 50/50 between 2012 and 2008 ones, however. Very few Romney ones, but it seems most cars don’t want to advertise their political leanings, including me.....

It’ll be interesting to see how Virginia falls out. No. Virginia will be the tipping point for the whole state. And...I’m sure getting tired of folks calling and trying to poll me —get 3-4 of these calls a night. This election can’t happen soon enough.....

I hate that we’ve gotten this far in this country. It’s frightening.

However, looking at the crowd sizes at the RR rallies and the ones on Chick Fil A Day......I have HOPE for November. I truly think there is a ‘silent majority’......and they’re pi$$ed!

Y’all stay safe!

It's true! I haven't seen any either -- in NYC or out here on Long Island. In fact, I've seen barely ANY signs for the presidential election, though there are signs for the Congressional seats.

That said, I took a road trip to NE Pennsylvania last week and counted the lawn signs starting in Sparta, NJ, through that rural part of the state, up across the Delaware Water Gap, and through Pike and Wayne Counties in PA. We also went to Scranton, and through Lackawanna County. Here's what I saw:

Romney/Ryan signs: 47
Obama signs: 10
Plus, one very large, hand painted wooden sign reading, "FOR GOD'S SAKE, WAKE UP AMERICA! HE'S RUINING OUR COUNTRY!"

Quite a difference from last time, where you couldn't swing a dead cat here in NY without hitting an Obamalamadingdong sign.

Regards,

Central Illinois has mostly local election signs and R&R signs run 10 to 1 over Obama. Could he lose Illinois. Quinn barely was elected over the Republican challenger.

Here in northern California Saturday, we were driving to the San Fran east bay area. Saw three obama bumper stickers on cars all driven by 60 old hags.

My daughter and I always stare and laugh when we pass their car because we always like to see what “Stuck on Stupid” looks like.

There’s a guy in the little town east of me that has a truck with an ever-expanding collection of anti-0 stickers.

Every time I drive by, I slow down to read his latest acquisition.

This is true. However in 08 Obama mania was alive and well here as anywhere else.

Although Lee County was a win for McCain it was the by a very, very small margin.

Trust me, if you live here you would see the difference.

You are not going to get any disagreement from me.

I was raised to not pay attention to a person’s skin color and we have tried to raise our daughter the same way - and it had been working - until the past 4 years. It’s disheartening.

I honestly and truly believe this man has set back race relations 50 years. It bothers me, it really and truly bothers me.

4 years ago I had to explain to the then 10yo what one of the men at church meant when he referred to Obama as a “common field n****r” - following the first debate 2 weeks ago, that now 14yo said to me “now I understand what Mr. M was talking about.”

I do agree there is a silent majority and we are pi$$ed!

I’m in Madison, too. The Hopium Pusher in the WH is not drawing much support these days, judging from the dearth of visual evidence out there - I’m on the Beltline everyday in rush hour and the 2012 stickers are few and far between.

I've seen a few by the city nearby, but in my area there's a bunch of Romney signs and a few stickers. I live right outside Ann Arbor.

Away from the city, it's almost all Romney, no Obama.
