Went to a Romney rally today in Omaha, NE

Got sunburned holding my Ron Paul sign in front of a Romney rally today. For some reason my comment "flip flops belong on your feet, not in the oval office!" wasn't nearly as funny to the people waiting in line as it was to me.

Anyhow we were interviewed by a local TV station (channel 7). Can't wait to see it! The best part was when a Romney supporter, who couldn't think of any intelligent response to our critiques of Romney, blurts out, "well why don't you serve in the military!"... and the Ron Paul supporter next to me is an Iraq War vet. It was priceless. "...Oh.... well... thank you for your service."

In terms of size it was only a few hundred people. It filled a large restaurant.
Hah, they got nothing on Ron Paul.

Dangit

I should have shown up too. I just didn't bother to look up the time of the rally.

New title for Romney crowds:

Mittance| mitt - ance | noun : a small crowd at a Romney rally; very few people in attendance; gathering that takes less than five minutes to conduct a head count; low numbers of sheeple.

Mitt's sheep.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Love it!

The other night @MRC chat the 5 souls imprisoned there

were talking about how Romney will be speaking to his largest crowd ever coming up at some college's graduation. The 4 bored housewives and Chris were going on and on like:
“how many people will be there?” and
“will it be televised?!” and
“Oh ma gawd, it will be historic!!!”
They really are better than TV over there–>
Let me get this straight, Romney's biggest crowd is going to be composed of people who have to be there anyway?!
Priceless

I Have A Serious Question...

Was everybody in line Baaaaa-ing?

Suggestion

instead of just holding up signs how about showing them some pictures the MSM hasn't shown them of the crowds Ron Paul pulls. Remember these sheeple going to Romney rallys think we're a minority

That's what we need!

After attending the UC Davis Rally with 5000 others, my husband and I wanted to see what kind of crowds Romney was drawing. We could only find one video of a group that took up the endzone area of a stadium - it was pitiful.
It would be good to see not only the size of his crowds but the lukewarm reception his message gets from them.

Put some aloe on that burn

and Good job patriot, sounds like you really riled them up. Nothing like foot in mouth, that must have been a funny moment, like when Romney said he liked trees. Next time that happens remind them that we support the man the troops support

RP R3VOLution

LOL

That's legit. What a terrible Romney supporter. I can just imagine...

"Bring our troops home! Stop the wars!"
"Well, if you hate the wars so much, why don't you serve in the military?!"

nice man

and what all did you say on your media interview post a link please of your video or youtube it ty

ron paul 2012 no one else

You should've told the old

You should've told the old geezer that Romney ran from his draft and lived in a mansion in France instead of serving in the military when his number came up!

A rally in a restaurant....LOL

This is classic with the Romney campaign. When he whizzed through my city to snag half a million at a fundraiser hosted at our resident billionaire's compound, the media couldn't pan the cameras or videos anywhere outside the entrance to the estate because there were nothing but demonstrators from OWS and Ron Paul supporters there. The only interview the media could come up with was from an anti-Romney protestor.

Our "front runner".....making friends and influencing people all across America. NOT.

Romney In West Virginia

Damn ! That draft dodging chicken-hawk Romney did the same thing here in Wheeling West Virginia. Bob Murray, the local multi-millionaire coal baron held a fund raiser and they wouldn't let any cameras anywhere near Wheeling Park, where it was held. I heard that he got a million while he was here though. 2500.00 bucks a plate.

Come on, that is no way to

Come on, that is no way to treat the underdog in the race. Just because Paul is picking up all the caucus state delegates doesn't mean we should belittle others working hard in the Romney campaign.

Oh I'm close, I should have

Oh I'm close, I should have went with an RP sign too, haha. I'm from Nebraska and have NEVER seen a Romney sticker or sign anywhere, only Paul and Obama ones. Only people with their heads in the sand will vote for him (and sadly this includes my parents).

That said, Ron Paul needs to come to Nebraska, specifically the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Please, please, please? :)

do what the other colleges have done

start ayouth for Ron Paul chapter and INVITE HIM

Here's a picture of the event...

I was there...we chatted before I walked in

Just returned from the Romney rally in downtown Omaha. I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but alas...less than 500 showed, people waited for over two hours to hear him speak for maybe 20 minutes. He didn't explain his plan(s) and didn't take questions. But he "loves babies and mothers." Highlight for me was being incognito, seeing some of the local Ron Paul crew outside, being mistaken for secret service and the Press, and being interviewed by local news TV. And, I was waived in without being on the list. Pays to wear a shirt/tie/jacket and dress shoes sometimes. LOL Not a bad day in all :)

"We marched in, we can just march right out"

No it was very funny

Flip flops don't belong in the white house, they belong on your feet. That is hilarious. LOL

Also you should have told him to go die in the sands of the middleast as well. I would have.

Great activism

What station?

Someone needs to record it, I hope the station kept your part in it. What a brilliant idea for your sign!

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Lol @ the flip flops comment.

Lol @ the flip flops comment.

Didn't even know he was gonna be here.

Seems like the "Republican Nominee" would be able to get the word out and have some buzz about an appearance in a deeply red state. I don't think there was a single person, that I talked to, knew he has going to even come near Nebraska.
