Armed Man Arrested for Threatening to Kill George W. Bush
Breitbart ^ | Feb. 1, 2014 | Wynton Hall

Posted on 02/01/2014 1:20:15 PM PST by PROCON

On Friday, the U.S. Secret Service arrested a New York man with a loaded rifle, machete, and gas container on charges of threatening to kill former President George W. Bush over an apparent fixation with Bush's daughter, Barbara.

"Bush will get his," yelled Benjamin Smith, 44, while being taken into custody.

Authorities were tipped off by the suspect's mother, whom Smith lives with

Hmmm, a 44 year old living with his mother, the new normal in 0bama's America.

He will get his in the millions in speaking tours, so in a sense the insane guy is correct.

Admittedly, there is some inconsistency in the notion that the way to win Barbara Bush's affections is to kill her father

Yeah, well, thinking things through is not a string suit of people like this.

Maybe he took Obamas non-stop “It’s all Bushs fault” to heart.

At first I was going to laugh at your remark, but sadly, you may be right.

Reading the headline, I was unsure how many arms this man had, but for more than a moment thought that Richard Kimball’s killer was back.

...with whom Smith lives.

Seriously. Pulling "whom" without doing it right is like trying to maim a Yale man with a soggy Valentine's card.

With Kerry it might work, though.

The Insanity is rising.. The first comment on the Breitbart article said to remind the man that Obama had two daughters.....Oh my. Nuts everywhere!

One of the Bush daughters got married, Barbara?

A jury may let him off the murder charge as long as he refrains from saying any more, since it’s not really clear what he means by “I have to slay the dragon.”

He does seem a bit confused, if he things that Bush is still running the Pentagon.

I think that's actually correct. Try it this way "...with whom Smith lives."

Actually, he wrote “I have to slay a dragon and then Barbara Bush is mine.” and not “I have to slay the dragon and then Barbara Bush is mine.”

By using “A Dragon” the accused could have just slain and dragon and he would get his wish.

If he had used “The Dragon” that would be specific to just one dragon and that dragon would understandably be threatened.

A few decades in a rubber room and daily ample doses of Thorazine should make this guy realize that there is a reality that does exist even if he is unwilling to participate in such.

I see what you did there.

Texan: Well, let’s try this. Can you tell me where the administration building is at, asshole?

BDS continues

Something I noticed lately in talking with libtards...

Almost everyone of them no longer defend Obama...sort of hard to defend the defenseless...even when you are an Obot...

Their fallback position is now..."Well at least Obama is better than Bush"

BDS is a psychosis

“I’m going to work for George W. Bush and the pentagon,” Smith allegedly wrote.
“I have to slay a dragon and Barbara Bush is mine.”******

When he was asked about his marital status, he responded, “I am divorced
and not currently seeing anyone but I am working on a relationship with Barbara Bush.”*****

I saw the movie. I thought the guy who played that SS colonel made the movie. I also saw him in Water For Elephants.

Yeah, him. Great actor. Will have to do a filmography of him to see what other movies he’s been in. I also like the guy who played Hitler in Downfall. Saw that movie and it was hard not to laugh because of all the Hitler parodies I’ve seen.

I don’t usually go for these off-beat movies, but I really enjoyed “Inglorious Basterds” (I think I misspelled that correctly). I don’t care that much for Brad Pitt, but he did a great job playing Aldo. The concept of the movie was good. I liked the guy that played the Nazi detective.

Same here. That SS guy made the movie. He was great. I saw him in Water For Elephants as the head of the circus. Did a great job there. I want to find out what other movies he was in.

“I also like the guy who played Hitler in Downfall.”

Yes, I really want to watch that movie for real sometime.

I think it’s a mark of what a good movie it must be that those parodies work over and over again. That acting of everyone involved seems to be excellent.
