Thug tactics for a thug candidate.

LAKE COUNTY, Fla. — Police are searching for the vandals who apparently torched more than a dozen campaign signs andAmerican flags in a Howey-in-the-Hills veteran’s yard.

William Overbay said someone ignited the flags and signs, which supported Republican presidential candidate MittRomney, that he had lined along his yard. The vandals also painted a sign on his driveway reading “Obama for life,” at his DuPont Circle home, Overbay said.”

This is the first thing I saw was this sign painted on my driveway,” Overbay said.

Howey-in-the-Hills police say no one left any clues behind to identify themselves. Overbay said as a Vietnam-era veteran, the hard feelings caused by the vandalism run deep.

“To give that many years for my country and to see it desecrated in such a despicable way angers me,” Overbay said. “We have freedom of speech and to desecrate any kind of signs is absolutely despicable and a violation of the constitution of the United States.”

Overbay said he’ll be replacing the destroyed signs and flags in time for the election.

Actions seem to speak louder than words in that you do not see Romney people doing any of this to Obama supporters.  And where is Obama in this.  A responsible candidate would be speaking out and asking his supporters to not resort to these things; it has happened before and that is what you expected from the candidate.  Not Obama; this sort of thing is what he has been telegraphing to his supporters all along; support of OWS being a good example.

He called Romney a bullshi**er."   Imagine that...Mr. Likability....falls from grace after destroying our country over a four year period.   Who would've thought?

He's setting a perfect example for the younger generation, isn't he? Now I think I have a much

better knowledge of the term "Dumbing Down America" really means.

Back in the good old days (which to many of us would mean the 50's and 60's, there may have been some animosity clearly showing between some of our lesser intelligent citizens when it came to politics, but I do not recall any of them STOOPING to this lowly level of behavior.

And they are the FIRST ones to criticize what is happening over in some of the foreign countries when in reality, they have absolutely no room to talk.

They should all look in a mirror and give thought to whom they are representing.

Tara Jane, I sure love the idea of those a great deal; they sound perfect in fact.  Good illustration of what one thinks of Obama, too.

Also glad that things are being left alone.  There are here in may area, as well.
