    The secret service actually got involved with all the threatening tweets, posts, etc., about Obama since 2008? Seriously?

    Sir, you better be careful...otherwise you will get a stern letter from a Special Olympics athelete too
    Just like Ann Coulter did for her "retard" tweet during the debate ...she's being attacked thru the media. :eek:

    He can no longer distinguish between reality and reality show.

    First, how does he know the secret service was getting involved over threats to Obama in 08?
    Second, how does he know the secret service isn't getting involved over threats to Romney now?

    Does Mr. Jones have some sort of special relationship with the Secret Service which allows him access to their records and ongoing investigations?

    More of history repeating itself:



    From an FDR 1936 campaign speech in Madison Square Garden:

    "For nearly four years you have had an Administration which instead of twirling its thumbs has rolled up its sleeves. We will keep our sleeves rolled up.

    We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

    They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

    Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.

    I should like to have it said of my first Administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match. I should like to have it said of my second Administration that in it these forces met their master."

    Obama could have given that speech as well.

    I hope these assholes keep blaming the media and ignoring the glaring problems with their own ideas. Doing so will speed them on their way to obsolescence.

    As if right wing religious nuts belong in government to begin with. There should be a sign at the entrance of every government building. "You are now entering a secular establishment. Please check your religion at the door."

    The poster girl for the ignorance and intolerance of the right.
