Vanity: And behold a Romney bumper sticker
Me | July 16, 2012 | Me

Posted on 07/16/2012 6:05:34 AM PDT by C19fan

Just as some background I live in Central VA as freepers know VA is one of the states that will determine who will win the POTUS election in November. I was at Costco during the weekend and I noticed a car parked with a bumper sticker and I beheld it was a ROMNEY sticker. This is the first one I have seen during this year long whole campaign sticker. I have seen plenty of Obama stickers, there is a significant African-American population in the metro area, and many Anti-Obama stickers but so far this sole instance of a Romney sticker. I got a bit annoyed when the Romney sycophants criticized Speaker Boehner for speaking the truth that except for Mormons nobody is going to cast a positive vote in favor for Romney but voting to fire Obama. All the anecdotal evidence supports Boehner's statement.

Wow.

Stream-of-consciousness posting is quite unreadable.

It doesn’t matter if they vote “for” Romney or not - as long as a majority large enough to overcome the voter fraud vote AGAINST Obama. That is what matters.

I have never put a bumper sticker on my car in fear of vandals.

I had a Bush-Cheney sticker I wanted to put on my car but I was working on a project in which I had to park in a lot that was shared with union trades at a project at the Pentagon.

I live in a very conservative county in SE VA and I have not seen any Romney stickers.
I will be an, “anybody but Obama” voter but I will not actively support Romney.

That's because milt is eminently unlikable.

99.9% of his vote will come ABO voters. The only people who actually vote FOR milt will be a few LDS'ers and Karl Rove.

I’m in central VA, too. I haven’t seen a single Romney bumpersticker, but I have seen some for Obama....sported by blacks, ugly white women, and in one case, a fat white college student type with a carrot-top afro and a beater car.

Quite right. I have seen the clipped hairs with the Obama stickers.

I live in Central VA as well. Likely a little east of you toward's Charlottesville. I've seen no Romney stickers at all, and lots of Anti-O stickers. I thought of making this one and putting it on my car..

ROMNEY

(Because he's not Obama)

Or his VP.

I’m still cautiously optimistic about Romney’s VP.

That’s a good one.

I love the sticker with a picture of Obama, and text, “Does this ass make my truck look fat?”

I can count on two hands the number of Romney stickers I’ve seen here in the Hampton Roads area in the past few months. LOTS of pro-Obama stickers.

I wouldn’t put a bumper sticker on my car if you paid me. I think they are tacky and ruin the car. I can’t believe some people put stickers on the bumper of their new car. Never would I do such a thing. Our cars are 2-years and one-year old and there is no way. My last car was a 97 and STILL refused to put anything like that on my car (gave up the car in 2011). Even if Palin or Ronald Reagan were running, I would not put a sticker on my car. So tacky!!!!

Slightly off-topic but I saw this sticker recently. I guess union workers are part of the LGBT community? This is a T-shirt with the same message as the sticker:

Well to be fair, Romney isn’t even the official nominee yet...

Thankfully you left out the mug shot. There are way too many ‘angry white womyn’ already.

And the insinuated ‘sex’ message showed she has not been enjoying any.

Around here people won’t put on a Romney sticker because they are afraid that Obama supporters are violent and that they or their vehicle would be harmed.

As far as your tacky comment, I just bought a car on Thursday. When it got home I put on a brand new bumper sticker. It’s for sailing.

I found that image through a Google search and with that the credit belongs to someone else. The image I saw was limited to a circular sticker.

Looking at the glass half-full, for all the A-As we have here in Hamp-Roads, the pro-BO stickers are pretty scarce as well as Kaine which I haven’t seen one on a car. Just a guess but I don’t think the A-As will be voting too fast for The One this time....pro-gay marriage, etc.
And I echo the “ he’s not the official nom with a veep pick” opinion.

LOL CofA.

Peeling Obama ‘08 stickers on rusted Subarus at my dog park. Lanky bushy haired pale mountain women with yellow teeth and long gray braids...paired with thin mountain biking men sporting professorial beards. :-)

I know other people who worship their “stuff” — but the way they treat human beings is worse than “tacky”. Hope you’re not one of ‘em.

Here in suburban Richmond I have only seen one Romney sticker (probably the same guy you saw). The closer you get to the city, especially the Fan district, the more Obama stuff you see. I have a magnetic Gadsden flag for my car but figure the open-minded love and granola types with their disdain for private property (except theirs) are likely to key any car that expresses a contrary opinion.

I have to agree, sadly. Years ago when Sore Loserman was the ticket, I had a Rush Limbaugh “AlGore is a risky scheme” sticker in my back window.

Parked at the airport (Atlanta) and came back to find my car keyed all across the hood and down the driver’s side to the left rear quarter panel.

$5000 repaint, covered mostly by comprehensive insurance.

Police at the air port were kinda like “Oh well ...”

LOL, that is EXACTLY the look!

I recently saw a Volvo with an old Kerry/Edwards sticker on it. IMO, that’s as pathetic as it gets.

I have the same concerns when it comes to Bumper Stickers. I found a way to get around it though. You can purchase magnets the same size as bumper stickers. When you park your car they are easily removed and then replaced when you leave.

I am NOT affiliated with this company at all!!! I have used them though and they work!!

Same here.
Living in the Bay Area I would never put a bumper
sticker on the car.I know the car would be vandalized.
My daughter lives 50 miles north of me and was parked in a large parking lot.While walking back to her truck, she saw a couple in their 50-60’s ,walk up to her truck and spit on it.
Yeah,she had a Bush-Cheney sticker on the truck.

I haven’t seen many Obama stickers, but some of the anti-Obama stickers are catchy. I guess I’ll have to put on a Romney sticker, since he is the only course available for getting rid of Obama.
