28. To Address Some Possibilities
First of all, I'm certain it's the same person/family, because I do recognize them. It's an older couple (probably in their 60s), but the only interaction I've ever had with them is to nod hello to them as I walk by and to occasionally pet their dog when we meet on the sidewalk during one of my walks. Unfortunately, I don't know them well enough to just walk up and start talking to them
If I had to guess, I'd say that they are either former military, or they have children in the military, or both. That would explain the intense love for McCain. I just can't imagine someone loving McCain but then ardently supporting Obama the following election. It doesn't seem to make sense. I even allowed for the possibility that it was a practical joke that somebody played on them, but I drove by again later in the day and in the evening and the signs were still out (if it had been a practical joke, they would have taken the signs down as soon as they noticed them).
I suppose if they're very pro-military, they might respect Obama for getting out of Iraq and getting Bin Laden. That combined with an intense hatred of Rmoney might do it.
I also would like to point out that one of the other houses I mentioned above seems to have removed its Rmoney sign purposefully. I remember noticing it a few months ago (it was very visible from the street). Then one day, it was just gone and has not returned. If it had been stolen, there has been ample time for this person to get a new one. That sign is gone for a reason, I'm virtually certain of it.
