PHOTOS: President Obama Arrives in Weston for Fundraiser

President Obama arrived in Weston around 8:45 p.m. Monday night.

President Barack Obama arrived in Weston Monday night to cheers and waves from well-wishers and camera flashes from spectators as his motorcade traveled down Boston Post Road toward a home on Winsor Way.

at the intersection of Boston Post Road and Wellesley Street, where Winsor Way begins, after 5 p.m. on June 25, waiting for a glimpse of the president's motorcade. The crowd grew from a dozen people to more than 60 as the evening wore on.

Traffic was stopped on Rte. 20 for several minutes around 8:45 p.m. as the motorcade traveled west toward 38 Winsor Way,

Sindhu Sreedhar, 16, Shalina Sreedhar, 15, and Madison Stanwich, 17, all of Weston, stood for several hours, holding signs that read "We love Obama" and waving to passing cars.

"We want to see him (Obama), hopefully," Sindhu Sreedhar, said, while Stanwich added, "we really like Obama."

Obama's motorcade passed by without stopping, traveling up Winsor Way to its destination at the Krupp home. Guests had arrived earlier in the night on buses. Tickets to the dinner cost $17,900, or $35,800 per couple.

Wow a wopping 12 people showed up what a loser.... The same man thet creates class warfare againts the so called 1% he goes to for money Typical liberal do as I saw not as I do.

Jay: How is it class warfare to support the US middleclass and education for all? Historically, it was the rise of the middle class in England that led to representational government, secular education, emphasis on science and documentable hypothesis (Isacc Newton, building on Renaissance predecessors, like Galileo, Copernicus and ancient Greeks, like Euclid and Archimedes), the spirit of inquiry and rational debate that fostered the Industrial Revolution and British naval supremacy? Were there excesses, limited franchises (rotten boroughs) and chauvanisms galore? Yes, some were gradually repealed. Do you want to return to President George W. Bush's policies that brought the world economy to the brink of the abyss with crony capitalism like a Texas baseball team taking private property in the name of his own purpose? William C. Crum

Uh, Yes William Jay does want a return to the good ole days of Geroge W----Remember that even when most of America hated W for bankrupting the country and getting hundreds of thousands of people killed in two worthless wars----all with borrowed money from China, he still had the firm approval of 25% of Americans..... Oh, and Obama is black and a Democrat, two other reasons to rail against him---as most of the GOP did---before he even was inaugurated....Weather must be great in their world

Jay - it started out as about a dozen people, but grew to more than 60 by the time the president arrived.

Abby: Thanks for the empirical fact update. 60 people constitutes a significant turnout for Weston on short notice. I wish Ms. Jancourtz would "act locally" and help Diane Anderson and Alicia Primer collect voter signatures for a Citizens Petition to ban hunting on Weston public lands. If anyone thinks bow hunting is safe, they should google search "Archery Accidents". William Crum

NO I like the fact we have a President that thumbs his nose at the supreme court because he did not like there decision so he blocks the database the can check the status of an illegal alien (aka voter) I love all the new regulation that are job killer and then when companies leave the country he call them greedy because the need to make a profit? Where you wok do they not make a profit? Healthcare that forces people to buy something of they get fined? You seem educated to I am sure you can see the resemblance of a DICTATOR! An obama supporter is a socialist and we are in America land of the free not land of the ‘Do I as I say not as I do. If you don’t like it leave and MOVE TOU CUBA they are doing great there . This country has been ruin by socialist ideas in the last 5 years. You bitch about Bush your scumbag hand a man killed in Fast & Furious and it was all because he could not take certain guns off the street using congress and the RULE OF LAW like most people. Mr Transparency is a huge hypocrite this past month , why? Because he is losing so he let in 2 million illegal for hope and change votes. There are many other things I could say oh Mrs Peolsie “You will see what’s in the bill you pass it” are you kidding ? How about the liberal media playing duck cover. you call that normal not reporting the news…

Mr. Fuller how do you know the color of my skin? Is this the new liberal argument if I don’t agree with a person it's must be because their skin color? Are you kidding what a loser you must be.... Liberals when you don’t have an good rebuttal you call the person a racist, Gee I guess I hate white people too because there are no black people that live in your protected land of Weston and that is mean, maybe I should start a petition to have housing projects for people that live in Roxbury and Dorchester in Weston on your big lawns or golf courses so yes I am a racist I hate white liberal that live in Weston. Oh and when you protest it we call all of you racist and 1% ers Race card loser!
