I Had My First Obama Yard Sign Stolen Today...
Advertisements [?]
My house is on the main street of my town and about a 1/2 mile from the highway, so we get a lot of traffic going by. I've had two signs in my yard for a few weeks now and we bring them in at night because they seem to last longer that way.

In 2004 I had signs for Kerry/Edwards stolen a couple of times a week until I rubbed poison ivy leaves on them.


In 2006 I had signs for Casey, Rendell and some local Democrats that were never messed with. I guess they just go after the presidential signs.

Today my wife was out planting her flowers around the house and she ran in and told me someone took one of them while she was in the back and that she had seen them just minutes before. They were doing some roadwork down the street and traffic was stop and go at different times, so somebody must just jumped out while they were stopped and grabbed it. My son and I are doing some canvassing tomorrow so I won't need to make a special trip to pick up extras since I'll be at headquarters anyway.

On a side note, my son is on the varsity tennis team and he had a match tonight (he plays singles & doubles) and when he got home he made over 50 calls for the campaign, made 30 contacts and only one said she was for Mrs. Clinton. Some still claim to be undecided but most of the people were Obama voters.
