PHOTOS and VIDEOS: President Obama Visits Northern Virginia

President Obama made a campaign stop Saturday at Centreville High School in Clifton.

President Obama visited Centreville High School in Fairfax County Saturday as part of a campaign swing through the state.

The photos were taken at the speech, in the high school gym, as well as outside the school, where some local protesters gathered beforehand.

Dave, I completely disagree with your assessment that the anti-Obama "crowd constantly demonstrates" the hate and bigotry you write about. Rather than broad generalizations, please provide us with SPECIFIC examples of racism, bigotry and hatred and then maybe someone can take you seriouisly. In the absence of that, despite your years of experience,you are no better than the folks who you claim are racists and bigoted and hate. Why do you think it is o.k. for you to cast those aspersions on others (without specifics) and think that you make any sense. My take is that you're buying into the Left's tactics, believing that the Right is full of demons, haters, bigots and racists....and I completely reject that assessment. Thnk about it. President Obama is anti-capitalist, pro-government growth, and wants to "fundamentally transform" this country into something that he has yet to define. Would that be his idea of Utopia? What exactly is the goal? Do we want more of the Obama-era policies and results? I think not and I think the ire of the Tea Party movement and the Right lies in policy and direction. Not the President's skin color. Nothing could be more meaningless. Historical, yes; significant to policy - no.

Whew -- all these rants, name-calling and finger-pointing posts are making my head spin. A couple of comments: 1. I was present at the rally too. There were some “protesters” on the outside and the gym was packed on the inside. Who knows that the exact numbers were. Does it really matter? Any reader who is interested in that can get an idea of the crowd sizes by looking at the pictures accompanying this article. 2. Centreville H.S. was available for this rally because school is out and the building was empty and available. 3. I hope you all consider sending some of your well thought out recommendations to either President Obama or Governor Romney for them to consider, for the good of the country. 4. Isn’t it great that in our country we can all express our varying Republican or Democratic opinions on a blog or at a rally and not get shot or disappear in an imprisoned or re-education camp as a result?

@Barbara Glakas +1 on all points. And about the inane competitive discussion about attendance numbers inside and outside (belabored by the outsiders): it seems completely natural that there were far more people inside than outside. I would fully expect the same for a Romney rally. Matter of fact, I expect an infinite ratio at a Romney rally: 100% inside and nobody outside.
