"he was stunned by the question"

With as many people that have been arrested and / or investigated for making threats against Obama, why would anyone be stunned?

Retarded liberals pull out all the stops to take the focus off the total collapse of the economy. They plant their liberal people to ask stupid questions and wonder why people look at them like their from Mars.

Sounds to me like Obama [and his cronies, the media] has realized that he may have gone so far in destroying our country, as to plant the idea in a lot of heads that wouldn't have considered it before. And even though I am well aware of how a person can be arrested for even thinking out loud, I would be stunned at hearing someone do so! I'm sure lots of people think about it though. They don't act upon their thoughts because they still have impulse control. Or because they don't believe that acting upon their desires is worth the penalities.

Yeah, the only response I would have had is "get that guy and lock him up right now". I'm a firm believer in free speech and the expression of opinions (however abrasive they may be), but saying somebody should shoot the president in a crowded room is crossing the line. Any person with an iota of sense knows that. That is an opinion that is best kept to oneself.

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit is it?

No one said somebody SHOULD shoot the president.

"Rep. Paul Broun, a conservative who has harshly criticized the president, confirmed that at a town hall event in Oglethorpe County, Ga., on Tuesday a man asked, "Who's going to shoot Obama?"

You're right. Most just read the headlines and start pounding the keys.

The article went on to say that the lawmaker reported the incident to the Secret Service. The Service investigated the incident and found the elderly man to be no threat to the President.

It took this idiot 3 days to condemn an outrageous and un-American question? These tea-baggers will learn that Americans will not tolerate them making comments like this against the President. I wish that I was at that town hall; he would have been dealt with appropriately as I would have forcefully held him there for the Secret Service to arrive.
And that Congressman should resign immediately if not sooner.

No, they didn't. The RADICAL LEFTIST Oliver Stone and his RADICAL LEFTIST fans glorified that movie, not mainstream liberals, media, or mainstream Democrats.

Reading isn't my strong suit? I can pretty much guarantee my reading skills are better than yours, idiot. Don't even get me started. Besides... I heard the audio clip, I didn't read it. When you hear the audio, you can hear the implied intent. You're a jerkoff. Try choosing a battle you have a sliver of a chance of winning. Next.
