bet if you looked on the ladbrokes site or william hill betting sites they also have a odds listed for this.......... personally I really hope he does NOT get shot at, the damage that would cause would far outweigh anything he could do whilst in office for the next four years.

This is outrageous. Anyone that does this is an American Terrorist and should be treated as such. Lock them up and throw away the key. This store owner needs to be prosecuted!!
What a nutjob!

Although it's a bit tasteless, he hasn't broken any laws. I'm sure there are plenty of incidents similar to tis concerning President Bush and others. And yes, he very well could be a nutjob...LMAO

He would probably die by the hand of a black man upset because he didn't help him pay for his gas and mortgage! I'll be sure to stay out of the hoods on that day because I'm certain they will burn down. On a positive note.....the properties can then be cleaned up and condo's can be built....LMAO

which was my point, yet I get stupid ratings for it, and to be honest the very last thing I want is for him to get assinated, but it is a fairly safe bet that the two main betting companies have books running on this in the UK, heck they have one for when california breaks off and floats away, either from earthquake or the rest of america bombing it and getting rid of it.

I TRULY hope he stays safe and sees his 4 years out, as he is now the president elect, the very least people should do is give him a chance to prove him self one way or another.

Hell if it happens there won't be a black at work for a week. They will all claim they had a relative die!

I see this as wishful thinking on many peoples parts. This is really sad and awful. I care for Bush at all but he is still my president and I will defend him. No matter what your thoughts are on him the office commands more respect than what it is being given.

By the way would everyone still think it was funny if a similar pool was done against the Pope? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Of course no one in their right mind wants a president assassinated.

As to the judging icons (stupid rating) your posts receive? Consider the source. There are actually idiots that think the "red lips" icon has to do with race.

Don't disrespect the Pope like that. Obama can't be compared to the Pope in any context. Stick with the topic please.
