Man Sought for Shooting at White House, Right Wing Goes into Frenzied Denial
Police in Washington DC are searching for a man they suspect of shooting at the White House, after the discovery of a bullet that hit a window: DC Shooting Suspect Could Be Threat to Obama, Police Say.
ABC News has learned authorities are increasingly concerned that a man sought in connection with a bizarre shooting incident on the Washington Mall last week may pose a threat to President Obama.
The Secret Service now suspects that a bullet fired in this incident may have hit the White House after a bullet round was found in a White House window, though the round had not yet been conclusively linked to the incident. The round was stopped by ballistic glass behind the historic exterior glass, while an additional round has been found on the exterior of the White House.
Police believe the suspect, 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho, is mentally ill. Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House.
I just took a quick run around the right wing blogs, and their main concern right now is laying blame for this shooting on “the left,” and denying any connection to the Tea Party or the right wing.
Even though nobody has suggested such a connection yet.
Andrew Breitbart camp follower John Nolte claims the AP is covering up the OWS “connection” … then links to a story that explicitly says the police searched the OWS camp and found nothing: Could a Possible #OccupyWallStreet Connection Explain Lack of MSM’s White House Shooting Coverage? - Big Journalism
But check out the headline of that article as well as this AP headline. The disconnect is obvious. The AP headline doesn’t connect the shooter to the Occupy movement, and the Huffington Post headline doesn’t connect the Occupy camp search to the White House shooting.

Schlosser says police searched the Occupy D.C. encampment in McPherson Square after callers said they had seen a man matching Ortega’s description, but the search turned up empty.
Breitbart’s clownish bloggers are completely beyond parody. They don’t even try to hide the fact that they’re making up nonsense out of thin air.
