"Death to Obama"

According to NBCWashington, a man in Hagerstown, Maryland was taken into custody by the Secret Service for displaying his "Death to Obama" sign at a rally.

I guess this is a good reminder that the Right has its lunatic fringe just like the Left.

Those of us on the sane Right wing do not wish any harm to come to President Obama. On the contrary, we wish him a long and happy retirement after he loses the election in 2012.

Those who express sentiments of violence toward our President should be detained and interrogated by the Secret Service.

Unfortunately, out of about a thousand good Americans who came out to this rally, my guess is that the mainstream news media will only focus on the tiny lunatic fringe.

Just a word of caution. You're making an assumption that the individual was a right-winger.

The point is that we really don't know. If he is a right-winger, then shame on him. But he could be an Obama supporter trying to make the right look bad. It wouldn't be the first time.

Just the other day, an Obama supporter was arrested for running around the Internet posing as a white supremacist who said he wanted to kill Obama.

During the campaign, Obama supporters tried to start rumors of assassination plots to garner sympathy & votes for Obama.

Connie,

You make an excellent point. It wouldn't surprise me in the least of this was a Left wing plant. If so, I certainly hope he gets exposed.
