Biden Draws Supporters in Manchester [VIDEO]

VP rallies Dems at NH Institute of Art in Manchester.

The sun was out, but a cool breeze couldn't chill the flame that ignited hundreds of Barack Obama supporters to stand for hours outside the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester waiting to attend a grassroots rally with Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday afternoon.

Indeed, the line of supporters – most clad in Obama 2012 buttons, hats, tote bags and other paraphernalia, many holding signs – wrapped around the block as they were slowly guided through tight security and into the building where Biden was appearing with U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who was recently named one of Obama's campaign co-chairs.

Yet while Beatriz Bearden and other supporters said they didn't mind waiting outside, even with the stiff breeze, to show their support, New Hampshire Republicans questioned the motives of the visit.

“With the President losing ground with Democrats, Independents, and young voters, it is no surprise that Vice President Biden is in New Hampshire to shake the money tree," said RNC Regional Spokesman Ryan Mahoney. "Barack Obama and Joe Biden will need all the money they can get to cover up their failure on jobs, the economy, and soaring gas prices.”

Check back with Patch later this evening for more on the visit.

post 2 of 2 The evaluation of the meaning of “natural born citizen” in the Constitution comes from Dr. Herbert W. Titus, of counsel to the law firm William J. Olson. He previously taught constitutional law, common law and other subjects for 30 years at five different American Bar Association-approved law schools. From 1986 to 1993 he was the founding dean of the College of Law and Government at Regent University. And before that, he was a trial attorney and special assistant U.S. attorney with the Department of Justice. His degrees are from Harvard and the University of Oregon, and he’s admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, appellate courts in the 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th and other districts. His practice has taken him into courts more than a dozen different states.

I'd love to but you damn socialist liberals cut down all the trees to build your socialist utopia here in the late great state on NH

Exhibit a, folks. Here is what the right-wing attracts. Shameful.

I was just talking about this with someone... mental illness?

Mental illness for sure, Jan. I'd say brain disease but I'm not sure disease can exist on such obviously tiny hosts. I actually laughed out loud when I read Jim's boasting of his "expert" being a founding law dean at Regent - televangelist Pat Robertson's own little school of propaganda. Guess Jim doesn't know that Titus was fired from Regent's Law School, originally called the CBN (Christian Broadcast Network) School of Law, at the originally named CBN (Christian Broadcast Network) University. Robertson changed the name to Regent stating " . . . a regent is one who represents Christ, our Sovereign, in whatever sphere of life he or she may be called to serve Him.". The school's motto is "Christian Leadership to Change the World". (gag) The law school came to be when Michele Bachmann's alma mater, Oral Robert's U School of Law, went under, and the law library was given to CBN. Then, POOF!, Robertson created a law school. Some credentials, eh? (chuckle)

I did not know that there are still these "commie " suporters of "socialism " still in the "LIVE FREE OR DIE " state . We take our freedom serious here in NH . And we stand by the U.S AND the NH constitution , which I am told , supercedes the U.S. constitution for NH citizens !

I'd rather have Joe campaigning than doing anything in DC...
