I ask that because here is a collection of tweets from Tuesday night that should be investigated since this kind of threatening is not allowed by law. These people show very little knowledge of federal law with some lack of knowledge about spelling, etc. Also, I think that race may be very strongly involved in these threats.

In 2008 Obama had more threats than any other president:

This one threat was dropped:

"Re: Obama, fk the *****r, he will have a 50 cal in the head soon,” Bagdasarian wrote in one post. "Shoot the nig," he said in another.

I must confess I sometimes feel the urge to strangle a Kardashian.

I wouldn't worry about them. If these threats are legit, the FBI will take care of them.

"race" according to you "may be very strongly involved in these threats".................such as in trying to mock/imitate the stereotypical "black person" tweeting.

Some of those tweets are so stupid I would suggest that those are from Republicans trying to make Obama supporters look bad.

I don't think anything will be done about these threats. Two good reasons: They are obviously very racist in nature and they aren't against Obama.

I am not sure I ever saw any threats against Obama, but then I don't read left leaning blogs. I am concerned about these only because I have seen so many posts here about how many threats there have been against Obama. The fact that these people show very little intelligence tells me that they don't know about the law I asked about.

Doesn't it make some of you leaners mad as hell thinking that whenever anything like these show it must be people from the right trying to stereotype? I really don't think your suggestion has any truth but you may be right since I am willing to admit that you could be right. What would you say, about 2 or 3?
