Watch as CNN and MSNBC blame Rush Limbaugh for this.
Predictable as the sun rising.
That said, the possibility of Hillary’s SS team and Obama’s SS team engaging in a firefight against each other is now 100% more likely to occur....(chuckle)
Someone want to explain to me how a Presidental candidate(who hasn’t even won a primary), rates SS protection?
Yikes! Hill-de-pants’ thug machine must have slipped up and left a bit of evidence behind.
He must be gaining on Hillary
CCN front page:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has been placed under the protection of the U.S. Secret Service, reportedly because of a threat against him, the Secret Service said Thursday.
They all get USSS protection.
I’m a little surprised at this story. Normally, all the candidates get USSS protection. It’s by law.
I do not agree with Obama about much of anything, and I do not want him to be elected. That said, jerk-offs like this who make threats, and thereby interrupt our political process, need to be dealt with VERY harshly.
They have Gestapo?
Why the heck has it taken this long?
You know what I mean...(chuckle)
Gestapo comes after Hillary getting elected...
I thought only party nominees got protection. No?
Are you sure that’s true for candidates in the primary, 7 months before the first primary?
And how far down does this go? Can I get USSS protection by declaring myself a presidential candidate?
I thought all our senators had bodyguard protection. I just assumed as much of our money they lavish on themselves this would be one of their perks they insisted on.
Who are all those people that surround them when they are out, private security?
I’d be surprised if they all weren’t threatened regularly. There are just so many whackos of every flavor.
Excuse me while I have a bit of a chuckle over this. The very anit-gun Obama gets a threat—and he wants armed guards to protect him. Do I since a bit of irony here?
