Obama did the same thing when he made up the story that a McCain supporter said “kill him” at a rally. Two nuts. Unfortunately, one is running for president.

Have any of you considered the possibility that Ashley Todd was motivated to this level of extremism because she was truly convinced that Obama is an Anti-American Terrorist or a socialist?

I think it's time for Sarah Palin and John McCain to explicitly retract some of their more inflammatory rhetoric and assure their supporters that an Obama victory does not portend the destruction of the United States.

It's one thing to speak strongly against your opponents policies. To try and scare people about the opposition with lies and insinuations is both dishonorable and, evidently, dangerous.

Only the candidates themselves have the sway to calm some of the more radical elements of their support. Let's hope they do this before anymore incidents like this occur.

Anyone who would have understood the basics (1), would get it from the first second this “story” appeared in the media, which agenda was being advanced with actor Ashley Todd. (2)

(1) One of the basics:
- this “story” would never be published (not to speak about becoming headlines) if it was not part of an act staged to advance some agenda item.

(2) The agenda served by this story is:
- manage the anger of Obama supporters, in particular blacks, preventing that riots will not get out of control, once Obama is impeached and asks them to “elect” Clinton.

Not a problem. I sure do not take pleasure in being right. Like I said before, the situation sucks either way.

Chrystal Mangum gets rich off a book deal and this silly girl gets arrested. Something wrong with this picture.

Last I checked, I didn’t carve a “B” in my face and claim it was a political act. You are free to speak for yourself when you claim this little criminal as “one of our own,” OK? Leave me out of it.
