Being the President is a much harder job than I CAN B PRESIDENT Barbie and the movie First Kid make it seem. In fact, one of the occupational hazards of the job are near-constant death threats. And — SURPRISE — the same President who inspires billboards more racist than a cartoon version of Birth of a Nation starring the cast of Loony Tunes has also moved tens of thousands of people to make threats against the First Family’s life. How many, you may ask? Try around 30 a day. Or about 40,000 since Barack Obama first began receiving death threats, back in 2007.
Pretty good article and overview of the problem. It’s NOT the same as when Bush was President, not by any stretch of the imagination. This is pretty much hard evidence that the right hates Obama with a passion and a level not found before.
Since Mr Obama took office, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400 per cent from the 3,000 a year or so under President George W. Bush, according to Ronald Kessler, author of In the President’s Secret Service.
This defines the problem. Of course, according to the TP, it’s the Liberals who are the haters, the Blacks who are the racists, and the Women who are the sexists. This disturbs my calm in a deep and profound way.
