Remove Obama Protestors: Effective or Not?

The LaRouche PAC movement has been staging sidewalk protests in Milford for several months. The group is promoting Rachel Brown, a LaRouche Democratic candidate on the Fourth Congressional District primary ballot.

For several months, people who support the Lyndon LaRouche candidates have held sidewalk protests in Milford.

They stop cars at lights, hand out leaflets, and carry signs that advocate the impeachment of President Obama.

The LaRouche PAC has a candidate, Rachel Brown, on the Democratic ballot for the Fourth Congressional District, which now includes Milford. She spoke briefly to Milford Selectmen Monday, and is expected to hold a policy forum in Milford on Saturday.

Are these sidewalk protests effective? Will Brown gain support in Milford because the campaign is comparing Obama to Hitler? What do you think?

I don't care if you agree with President Obama or you do not...the office is the highest office in the land and deserves respect. The image of President Obama likening him to Adolph Hitler??? Are you kidding me??? The LaRouche people better take a break to brush up on their World War II history. Personally, I find those comparisons beyond offensive.

Robin, I completely agree.
