This is the idiot who allegedly told them at his bank that he was withdrawing a large sum of money because he and others planned to kill the President of the United States.

“With all this mess going on under President Obama with banks and the economy, I’m sure if citizens happen to lose their money, they will rise up and we could see killing and deaths”

And, since the whole nation’s money reserves amount to 85K, the first step of his plan was set in motion.

I read about a lot of threats against President Bush on the internet. Were all those sick people arrested too?
This guy sounds like a nutcase wanting attention.
He was probably gambling that $85,000 away at one of the casino in Laughlin.
He should be committed instead of jail.

Agree with you on all accounts IA.

He's a wingnut and Bush had many, many
threats made against him, none of which
got this much attention.

The MSM has been waiting for a story like
this for months now and are probably
surprised it took this long.

Well, they will make the most of it now.

Obummer won’t stand for any dissent. He is in charge and if you don’t agree with him, you are a racist and deserve the rath of his power.
This could get ugly.

I should have said the MSM was probably “Disappointed”
instead of “Surprised” that a threat on Obama has
taken so long.

The MSM loves talking about all the “right wing”
nuts there are out there.
I'd love to find out that the guy is a registered Democrat.
You would not hear that mentioned on MSLSD.

We think exactly alike Ice.

You are the only other person beside myself,
whom I have heard use the nickname “Obummer”.

"I've been worried the democrat party is fixin to matryr him.."

Oh my gosh... I never even thought of that.

If he died and made it look like some white racist did it the republican party would be finished for decades.

AND the democrats wouldn't have to worry about what stupid thing he does next.

I googled “arrested for threats on President Bush”. There were plenty, including a 14 year old who sent a threatening e-mail.

Question 1: How many threats on President Bush’s life
were investigated by FBI and SS?

Question 2: How many people were arrested for threats?

Question 3: How many went on trial?

Be careful about shooting your tv. Might be some law against it. I know Elvis got away with it years ago, but that was then and that was Elvis!

hosepipe,
I’ve thought the same thing, BUT ya have to know they would wait til the punks numbers finally tank when this economy fails to come back under his “leadership”.
I figure shortly before the 2012 elections.
And I’m surprised he doesn’t have some govt. thugs come visit all of us who even bring up the subject.
OH wait, there’s a knock at my door now.

With any luck at all, the fawning media types will be thrown on the funeral pyre to accompany the One into the afterworld.

If you think about it, the democrats have done this before ... think JFK. Say some white guy sends Zero to meet his virgins and lives thru the arrest. As soon as he says that he is a Republican who listens to Rush, he will die of unexplained causes. Think Jack Ruby here. And, as you say, the democrats get a two-fer; case closed and Zero gone.

These people getting arrested are all cranks and crackpots. As a former police officer and federal investigator, I’m certain that the Secret Service has already advised Obama that the one to worry about is the one who keeps his intent secret and he/she will not be known until they are discovered in an attempt, or, are actually successful in their attempt.

Look at history - Czolgoz, Oswald, Hinckley, Sarah Jane Moore. They either actually did it, or came very close to succeeding because they spoke to nobody of their specific intent.

As Kennedy said in Ft. Worth on the morning of November 22, “If someone wants to shoot me from the roof of a building there is nothing I can do to prevent it.”

Thanks for looking that up.
I wonder how often the threats on internet chats and forums are followed up? That could keep the SS very busy.
I might look into applying for a job searching for those threats.............

Exactly... nutjobs are common. But Obama is the king.The media was probably itching to paint him with a Christian right brush.

Kennedy actually said that? Do you think Kennedy was speaking cryptically about “taking a bullet for the team” then?

Gotta be the worst part of the job. Constantly wondering when you’re gonna take one. Personally, I find anonymity to be the height of freedom.

I’m not certain of the context, but I believe it was in response to a comment Jackie had made about the S.S. suggesting that the removable bubble top of the limo be bolted on.
