They should be prosicuted as criminals. All threats are criminal acts, and threats agaist a political figure, especially a US President, is not only illegal, but morally wrong and disgusting.

Go get an education. How else will they be prosicuted(prosecuted), as victims? It's definitely wrong but you need to learn how to spell.

So if this is true then Bush is vindicated for going to war in Iraq since the US was threatened by 10 attacks under Clinton and 9/11 under Bush.

Obama will serve two terms if the liberal news media has anything to say about it.

No matter how much he screws up they will spin it as someone elses fault and him as a combination of Lincoln, FDR, and MLK Jr.

I just hope he decides to leave the White House after 8 years.

No U.S. Drilling = dependency / no US jobs
No U.S. Clean Coal = dependency / no US jobs
And if you add these two factors,
and take Marines out of the Mid-East,
it will be the death of U.S. all.
Also, I don't think Wall St. likes it when you promise to punish success.
Socialisim and Capitalisim does not mix,

Don't forget no nuclear power either under Obama and the Dems.

If anyone has money left after the Obama tax increases they might want to buy stock in candle and wool blanket companies because without an adequate energy supply we're in for some dark, cold winters.

WE have a President elect who was never in charge of anything and listen to him he has the answer to all the wows of the world and how to fix them.
He will run this country into the ground with all his social views and programs he wants to have.
Funny he ran on change but his Cabinet is being filled with thugs from Chicago and those from past administrations.
THIS IS NOT CHANGE. THIS IS DECEPTION

GO HORSE COUNTRY!!! AMen OH BTW, did you notice his commenmorative Coin removed "In God We Trust" and replaced it with his name? NO OTHER PRESIDENT had a memorable coin made like that!! SHAME ON YOU OBAMA!
If you want to blame someone for the economic issue, why dont we look at Clinton and Enron where it all began???? He invested public money in tech stocks and then the result is they were all over valued.They lied! Wasnt until Bush administration that the Enron situation was made aware to public. Too Late, Billy Boy already invested all the MONEY!!!
Lemonade and Cookies served in the back!

You better hope he serves his entire term. Trust me you don't want to endure the consequences if someone does Obama harm.

That's odd.

No one threatened the Bush haters with dire consequences should anyone shorten his term unexpectedly.

Does that mean that Bush conservatives are more civilized and less prone to violence than the Obamatrons?

What's even odder is I don't recall anyone I know making threats toward Bush. Talking stuff about his decisions yes, threats NO.

NBC News broadcast a picture of Bush43 in the crosshairs of a telescopic sight.

While no serious threats have been made to Obama. A couple of yahoo's who plan to rob a gun store to get weapons are not going to harm the Anointed One.

But in recent years it has been only Republcans such as Ford and Reagan who were actually attacked by leftwing nuts.

I need further info. How does a picture broadcast on NBC translate into credible threats to W? I don't recall reading about or hearing that AMERICANS were making threats against Bush's life.
Here is something else you need to know, if something happens to Obama our country and its creed will be in jepordy.

That's all there was to it.

NBC broadcast a picture of Bush in the crosshairs of a rifle sight.

Naturally they said it was not a threat but most Bush supporters saw it as one.

And yet they didn't make open-ended threats against everyone on the left as a result of it.

"Here is something else you need to know, if something happens to Obama our country and its creed will be in jepordy."

It is never a good thing when any president is murdered in office.

Obama is no more important than any other president who has served.

And his death would be no more of a loss than theirs was.

But again, since JFK the last two serious attempts to kill sitting presidents came against Republican presidents Ford and Reagan.

Never said Obama was more important. Just stated that there would be significant uprisings throughout this country if something happens to him. Especially by American hands...

Who would do the uprising and who would they be making violence against?
