80k in his pocket and driving around a 2001 Buick LeSabre-this guy will hands down be the richest guy in Wal Mart.

I think it was Wanda Sykes that summed up how Obama presidency is going to be viewed in the future.

If you do a good job, you will be the first black president. If you mess up you will be that stupid white guy.

Probably not her exact words, but fairly close I think.

How ridiculous! That is why I'm so concerned when one or other poster starts insulting Barak Obama. So, think twice before you say something about the US President.
People, again, freedom of speech is not when you say EVERYTHING you want!!! That what I was trying to underline in one of my previous posts!

Exactly.

First of all, I hate to pull the race card but there are SOME (not all) people who just simply cannot stand that Obama is not all white. I PERSONALLY know two people who want Obama assassinated as soon as possible. It is sick. One man is my neighbor from my old neighborhood and the other man is my good friends dad. My old neighbor is a racist and I mean that. I am not just pulling the race card here-he literally trained his dog to attack black people and then was angry about having to "put his baby down for one 'em black ******s". I WISH I was making this up. He is a man who would REJOICE if he heard Obama was dead.

My friends dad blames GM failing on Obama. He says Obama should have bailed them out and not let them go bankrupt. He is angry because he is losing his benefits. He also wants Obama dead.

Second of all, I think it is worse because of the crises we are in. People are getting more into a panic mode and screaming around for their jobs and money. If the economy was not bad and if we were not in two wars, there would not be as many threats against him.

Now, there are SOME (not all Republicans) right wing whackos who are so damn scared that he is a "socialist" or someone who is a "Muslim" and out to destroy America. It is kind of like what the "prolifer" did to Dr. Tiller. This guy is probably an extremist rightwing nut like the killer of Dr. Tiller.

I sincerely hope the President has his guards near him and I sincerely hope that this man is captured and all plans foiled.

Tonight, I will send my well wishes to President Obama, as well as to our troops and everyone else in the world.

I agree with you about the safety of our president...I hope nothing happens to him. I actually hope he does do more to change this nation to a better place. I think it is silly for anyone to think he is something other than a man trying to make a difference...I have heard from some who actually think he is the anti-Christ...one even suggested that he was Osama bin laden with a great plastic surgeon...lol

That's a riot.

On a sadder note, many actually believe he's a terrorist in disguise. This is from one of McCain's lynch-mob rallies last year:


YouTube - For GOP Partisan, The Real Obama is a Terrorist

Scary people. Even McCain was taken aback by the response he got.

His next line was probably, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong" (as was obvious from the Dow Jones numbers that day).
