The Romney Death Threat Tweet Rate is probably more accurate than Rasmussen in measuring who’s winning over the electorate.

Twitterers are pussies. If they meant it, they certainly wouldn’t be posting it on twitter.

You won’t see this on the MSM. Let one person tweet something similar about hussein though, and I’d bet the MSM would be all over it and he/she would be in custody within a few hrs.

labor unions

for a while in my industrial career I administered the labor contract for the plant and received death threats during times negotiations got sticky or they went out on strike. It is in their play book.

There was a day in this country when threats against elected officials or candidates for President was not tolerated at all, verbal or what have you.

Such toleration now pushes the envelope. True the actual posters may be bluffing but to ignore those statements brigs us closer to the 1960s in American politics and it's not pretty.

These people must be made examples of immediately. No excuses, no “I was only kidding”, they need to be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law right away. It doesn’t seem at all like that is being done, which is a shame. This is completely unacceptable. These are very scary times to say the least.

These people really are violent. We have a discreet bumper sticker that merely reads ‘We need a different president’ and have been physically intimidated while driving through different areas of our city.

Where the H is Diane Sawher on this. She was so worried her Bamster was going to get shot when he was elected. No worries when books and movies (during GWB’s time) or now twitter and Romney.

My first wife was the team leader for hiring replacement workers (aka “scabs”) at a Firestone Plant during a Rubber Workers strike. 4 or 5 union thugs showed up on my back deck one night. Once they saw that I wasn’t exactly Wally Cox and was holding my Winchester Model 50, they mumbled about looking for “Dennis” or some such. There was no one named Dennis anywhere near my house. After that, we had 24/7 armed guards from the company contracted to protect the plant during the strike.

This sounds like a crock to me. Anyone stooopid enough to tweet that kind of stuff would have the Secret Service on them before you could say quick!

Obvious violation of the following Federal Law:

18 USC 879 (a)(3) - Threat to inflict bodily harm upon the GOP Presidential Nominee, Governor Mitt Romney.

Quite possibly also:
18 USC 875 (c) Interstate commerce transmit of a communication containing a threat to injure the person of another.

One Secret Service Agent was passed out drunk in the street last week. I guess it was okay because Obama had left town. Sheesh. Like him or not, he is still our President and needs to be protected. The Secret Service seems to have squandered a proud history of late.

If true and the liberal folks have the nerve, they should show a little less talk and a lot more action. Otherwise, it's just talk...

Probably in interviews with the SS and don't have time to plan anything. lol

You should’ve told them that “Dennis” was in the living room and invited them in.

Goes to show how seriously our government takes the socialist ghetto thugs.

Most of them will shoot each other before they get around to shooting Romney.

Investigation and arrest for these kind of threats are just for white males. Git it right!

Equality before the law without regard to race and sex? Old fashioned notions.

upon reading these tweets, I think most of those posting the threats need to remove a mitten to count to three...

That was pathetic. Reminds me of the Lincoln assasination. His "bodyguard" was at a tavern getting drunk while the POTUS got shot.

And the sick joke is, he wasn't fired, and in fact was allowed to continue his "career".

Given the sub-elementary school syntax and language, guarantee that most are homies.

Of course, they’ll skate and Holder will protect “his people”.

A race war is coming, and it is being forced upon us. It will be ugly and decisive.

With all the threatened riots and assassination attempts our LEO’s should have their hands full. Me I'm just cleaning my guns, sighting them in and counting my ammo for hunting season. I sure hope the boat doesn't sink while crossing the lake like it has for the last 3 years.

Can the identity of the Twitterer be clearly identified and tracked absolutely back to the sender? I.E., can they clearly and with certainty identify the sender for prosecution later.

I’m not worried. If they assassinated Romney, we’d get Ryan.

I worked as a scab at Continental Coffee the summer after I graduated high school. The job was crap, but I am proud I did it.
