He will certainly be safe with the NYT, once he gets the nomination.

The Obama Camp has been pushing this story in the blogosphere. Figures the NYT would try to give it legs.

This has the making of one of the most tumultuous political campaigns in American history. Aside from the issue of Obama’s safety, I think there is a real danger of unrest should Obama, as is likely, be defeated in November.

I’m so sick of hearing this crap. Why don’t they just come out and say that they think Americans are a bunch of racists. If you don’t support Barak Hussien you must be a racist.

If something happens to Obama it will be from the Clinton camp who will be sure to make it look like the work of a “right wing radical.”

Gimme a frickin break.

This is another attempt to idolize Obama as a mythical martyr type ‘cult of personality’ candidate.

NYT mindgame.

To understand how absurd it is .... try ...

There is a hushed worry on the minds of many supporters of Senator Joe Biden, echoing in conversations from state to state, rally to rally: Will he be safe?

There is a hushed worry on the minds of many supporters of Mike Huckabee, echoing in conversations from state to state, rally to rally: Will he be safe?

... or how about ...

There is a hushed worry on the minds of many supporters of Barack Obama, echoing in conversations from state to state, rally to rally: Will his youthful drug use and secret smoking habit kill him in office?

There is a hushed worry on the minds of many supporters of Barack Obama, echoing in conversations from state to state, rally to rally: Will terrorists use the opportunity to blow up a nuclear bomb in a US city when he is in office?

These questions are at least as reasonable as the question the NYT poses.

Just remember that a grieving widow makes for a sympathy vote as well. I went to see the Impeached One in a rally and there was VERY lax security. It was a little unnerving....

I thought the article was going to be about the worry that the doofus will start getting specific about his Podunk version of Communism, and the Dems will lose big.

Good morning.
“If he gets hurt, it will be from the Clinton Camp.”

It would be more likely to come from his own socialist handlers. Osama Obama is far more useful to them as a martyr than alive.

Ditto that. That’s why he can’t make her his VP. She will be just a heartbeat away from being president and that would not, I’m convinced, ever stop her. Just think of Patty McCormick in the “Bad Seed” and how she calmly explained to her mother why the little boy had to die.

Yep, some raving looney tunes will be found with a rifle with the serial numbers expertly removed. They will ask him to confess and he will ask for a crispy creme and the case will be closed when it's discovered that he was born south of the Mason Dixon line. He will be executed in a week because of the heinousness of the crime. His last words will be reported as whispering "Ronald Reagan".

Yet worry they do, with the spring of 1968 seared into their memories, when the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated in a span of two months.

Yep, all the white people are worried about Hillary running - I mean Robert Kennedy was "white" after all. His brother, Jack was also "white". Therefore all white people are at risk.

This strikes me as bulls-it put out by the Clintons to suppress black vote - - and of course, the MSM is carrying water for them

That clip will disappear into the MSM "memory hole". The only way it will be viewed is if it is run as a Republican ad. Will the MSM refuse to sell the air time to the Pubs?

It's a twofer for the Clintons - fewer vote for Obama, and the right wing takes the blame for something that hasn't happened. It was the same when Hillary expressd fear the right wing would expose Obama's youthful drug use - while it was her and her campaign that was doing it.

The Clintons are known for projecting onto others what they're up to...

The weenie is trying to play the sympathy card. Stanley’s poor little boy in danger from the forces of evil. The last thing I would want, is to see this slime revered by history as a martyr because of some misguided act of violence.Imagine being stuck with Obama day or the Obama monument on the mall in DC. Ugh.

It’s not a threat; it’s a near certainty. The only question is how many lives will be lost; how many billions in property damage and how many days/weeks will it last? When it does break out, the local gov’ts won’t be able to contain it and the Feds don’t have enough Nat’l Guard left to respond either adequately, or quickly. Best be far away from any major metro area on Election day and plan to stay away for 7 to 10 days or more thereafter.

Hes an apostate muslim. Not the best position to be in, unless he never turned his back on islam to start with. According to the koran it’s ok to lie to the infidels.
