The Question Is....

Do the Two Americans in Tennessee, Come from "Palin's Real America small rural towns Americans", like Bells Tenn. and West Helena, Ark

and "Not Anti-American" as Sarah "Neiman" Sixpack Tells US?

"They said that would be their last, final act -- that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama," he told The Associated Press. "They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."

Allegations against the two men -- Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of West Helena, Ark.-- have not been proven in court.

Officials with ATF said they seized weapons from the pair, including a rifle, three pistols and a sawed-off shotgun.

Cowart and Schlesselman are charged with possessing an unregistered firearm and threatening a candidate for president. They are also accused planning to steal more weapons for the plot.

Kudos to the AFT for catching this plot early. They have saved many school children and a distinguished candidate that the country needs. Senator McCain has nothing new to offer this country--just the failed policies of the current president, which have been tried for the last 8 years and found very sorely wanting indeed. Take care of yourself, Senator Obama. Your country needs you. Wear a bulletproof vest, please. I won't be offended if you gave a plastic shield when you speak in public, either. We don't want to add you to the sad list which includes JFK, RFK, and MLK.-A late middle aged, middle class white guy for Obama

I don't think McCain understands what he and Palin do at their rallies have an impact on how people act. People are already upset that their county is financially unsound, food is sky high and shelter are almost out of reach. Add to this the fact that jobs are going away many to overseas (thanks McCain). Then they have the nerve to stir up the hornets nests by using "terrorists, Muslim, unAmerican and most recently today " the democrates will TAKE OVER" Washington.
The wording alone will scare those who are already afraid their country is going "Socialist". What are they thinking when they write this crap to sprew at their rallies. Do they think that everyone in the crowd is an upstanding citizen who will let the voting public elect officials or that it's possible they could heat up the race. McCain had an absolute fit when Obama wouldn't censor Mr. Lewis for his comments, yet he can throw fuel on the fire every chance he gets.

He should practice his speeches in front of a mirror to see and feel the effect his choice of words has.
"They will take over Washington" is what they hear, you know the socialists, the black thugs, the ones your mother warned you about.

It's disgusting

RE:Neo-Nazis arrested in Obama plot

IF THERE, IS ANY QUESTION IF BARACK OBAMA ISN'T COMMITTED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IF HE ISN'T A REAL AMERICAN, IF HE DOESN'T LOVE AMERICA; PLEASE ANYONE ANSWER WHY IS HE RISKING HIS LIFE TO MAKE AMERICA BETTER.

IF THAT DOES NOT SPEAK VOLUMES TO THIS MAN'S CHARACTER SOMEONE TELL ME OTHERWISE.

YES McCAIN, IS A VETERAN & POW SURVIVOR BUT NOBODY IS TRYING TO KILL HIM, NOW.

Riots? The last of our worries. Can you imagine what will happen if Obama is put in the White House? If there are people willing to commit the crimes these two are "accused" of, the 88 & 11 will be nothing.

But what's always baffled me is where these "home grown terroris" get their funding? Every time they're about to "fold" a new mystery benifactor dumps a pile of money on them. Now under the terms of the Patriot Act we were able to stop funding to the IRA and they've settled down now. So why can't we do that here? Some believe it's because without home grown terrorist many Federal Agents would be out of work. Kinda like how the DEA would loose Agents if marijuana was legalized.

Wonder who the "friend" was who got these two guys together? Why hasn't he been charged too?

Should we expect anything else. When JFK was killed there was no riots but if he had been black there would have been. It seems all blacks know how to do is riot. We do not need a radical in the white office and if obama gets elected, which seems like the case, the odds are against him living long enough to be sworn in. Myself if we get a black president I will leave the US because it means we are on the decline as a country. The next thing will be a meeting with osama & obama to discuss how to divide the country.

Bulletproof vest? Plastic shield? What do you think sabot bullets are for. JFK, RFK, MLK? How do you figure that is a sad list. One of the best things that this countries people have done. Only thing sad about that is we got LBJ. This country should have been divided in the 1860's with the bleeding gheart democrats in the north and the smart folks in the south. Would have been except for Lincoln and his refusal to accept the loos of the best part of country.

I cannot believe that ppl are still that close-minded in 2008. I know racism still exists, but it is ridiculous. Get a life and quit worrying about the color of ppl's skin, and worry more about the status of our country. If Obama can help fix Bush's messes, then that's great!! I have no problem with him. I could care less that he's black. As long as he's better than Bush, or any other Republican, then so be it, we need him. Grow up, get a life and open your mind. Maybe our country would be a little bit better if ppl quit worrying about race and petty stuff and start worrying about real issues we would be better off.

It doesn't surprise me that they hadn't tried sooner. I had no idea that they would allow it to go this long without some ignorant person/group trying to kill Obama. There is so much hatred in people. Satan is very happy with you all. He doesn't discriminate he wants you, you, you and even me. I'm not happy with everyone or everything but I sure have no hatred in my heart for anyone.

Call me a white racist all you want to. I do know that my company has developed a prototype engine that is capable of making this country totally energy independent within 6 months time and provide totally green electric power and green vehicles. I also know that if obama is elected president it will not be released for use anywhere in the USA. It will be moved to Canada and released there. Obama is as racist as Osama bin Laden and does not deserve anything like this energy source. I can say this for a fact because I am the owner of the company and it is not a public traded company. Obama has already said that if you are smart enough to make money he will raise your taxes. Open your eyes and smell the roses.
