  1. #1 Four held over 'assassination plot' against Barack Obama

    UP to four people have been arrested over an alleged plot to kill Barack Obama at this week's Democratic convention.

    Reports from Denver have said three or four men with possible links to a white supremacist group have been arrested and the plot had been to kill Senator Obama when he accepts the Democratic presidential nomination at the end of this week.

    The reports say the men were found with guns, ammunition, a rifle scope, a bullet-proof vest and walkie-talkies.

    One report says one of those arrested made threats against Senator Obama to police, but that some officials believe he might have just been causing a scene.

    "It's premature to say that it was a valid threat or that these folks have the ability to carry it out. It could also turn out that these were nothing but a bunch of knuckleheads," officials were quoted as saying.

    Whoever they are, please be my guest and lock them away in a cell that wont see daylight for a hundred years. Forget there ever was a key.

    Allow them in with the general population in prison.

    And I don't care what your feelings are about Obama, if he is assasinated now it will have negative repercussions for the nation for years.

    Better to just beat him at the ballot box :D

    Of all the nightmares in US history, I'd have thought that this would have been the worst.

    I agree. Obama maybe a useless piece of trash, but he still doesn't deserve to be murdered or hurt for that matter.

    Just deplorable. I highly disagree with the man's politics and generally think he'd be a horrible president but to threaten his life? That sickens me. Put these idiots away for 25 years of hard time serving in Gen Pop at Sing Sing or Rikers, see if they last a week.

    Freaking idiots like this are the people who give us logical, rational, law abiding, country-loving, SANE Conservatives a bad name. How much you wanna bet that this plot by Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel is touted by the Soros/MoveOn crowd as concrete proof of "right-wing conspiracies, racism & hatred"? :mad:

    You can tell the difference immediately between a conservative site and a liberal one because after looking at the replies about those who wanted to harm Obama the conservatives are against those who wanted to do it while if it had been a conservative who was threaten the liberals would have been all for it and issuing threats of their own.
