Has anyone else heard this?

Gossip is. That if Obama is elected president, that he will be assinated...

Politics is just one of those things that you talk about at a bar, over a beer with friends. But it does seem that this rumor has been getting around...

so it's completely racial? Because I don't see what would make him more objectionable ideologically to the wingnuts than Kerry, Gore, Clinton, Dukakis, Mondale, etc....

I've never heard anything like that before. Can you imagine if people were talking about killing GWB?

Not to mention, Obama pretty much swept the south didn't he? This seems to lay some stereotypes to rest IMO.

It puzzles me that people will cry for tolerance, new age accpetance, Tiger Woods blah, blah, blah...

...and in the same breath entertain statements or conversations this morbid.

I guess we do have a long way to go.

I don't see it as people entertaining the idea so much as people being frightened that there are folks sick enough to do such a thing.

Thorin, maybe so...

When you read something like this, regardless of your color, it is hard not to be cynical. For some, a conversation like this can feed an inner desire, without ever having to commit the act or witness it.

We currently have more than 301,000,000 citizens according to cia.gov.

It only takes one nut to do such a thing.

Remember the guy shooting an ak47 at the White House when Slick Willie was in office?

Remember the guy who tried to fly his airplane into the White House around that time as well?

The assassination attempt on Reagan?

It happens. There will always be some nut looking to make a name for himself.
