The aftermath of Obama sending his budget to Congress Monday will be felt throughout his town hall meeting in New Hampshire as conservative and independent voters plan to crash his event inside and outside Nashua High School Tuesday.
The heaviest promotion of Obama's visit to the rock hard Granite State has been by those opposed to his budget plan for 2011. nhteapartycoalition.org has been routing people directly to the White House registration site for the event, which has been flooded with requests and closed before it's Saturday 5pm deadline. From the New Hampshire Tea Party website:
On Tuesday February 2, Obama is scheduled to visit Nashua High School North for a 2:00 PM Town Hall. The doors will open at 12 Noon. If you really want to get inside to ask a question you'll have to apply for a ticket, but we are sure that like last time, the deck will be stacked to make it appear that the majority supports his spending and big government takeover schemes.

After Obama's speech at a nearby hotel, opponents will respond with a town hall meeting of their own: A Townhall Response with Steve Moore of the Wall Street Journal. That goes like this:
Keep in mind there will be thousands of pickup-driving Scott Browners wearing barn jackets tailgating and inside the venue. Should be an interesting follow up in Southern New Hampshire to the January 19 Brown victory in neighboring Massachusetts. Independent rise predicted. Is the White House ready for it?
