Patriots Welcome Comrade Obama to Phoenix

Posted by Dave Blount at August 17, 2009 12:55 PM

Chairman Zero is in the Valley of the Sun today to exploit veterans at one of his phony dog and pony shows. Moonbattery staff photographer Varla recorded his welcoming committee for posterity.

Patriots gathered at Tom's Tavern at the corner of Washington and 1st Ave to hear from the great J.D. Hayworth and Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), among others. It was far too crowded to get inside, but those who were too busy blogging to show up early could listen thanks to speakers out on the sidewalk.

Contributor Troy was on hand with original artwork Moonbattery readers have seen before:

My own sign was less creative:

After awhile, some of the patriots headed over to the Phoenix Convention Center, where the spectacle was to be staged. Bused in union thugs and Obamamites yelled mindless slogans from across the intersection. The moonbats are learning; organizers were reportedly giving out hand-made placards, in contrast to the printed-by-the-thousand identical signs that usually make their astroturfing so obvious. But the only signs worth photographing were on the patriot corner.

Aside from the mob boss, the crowd seemed pretty innocuous for an angry mob. But no doubt any media that covers it will turn the gathering into an orgy of bloodthirsty fiends.
