Hmm.. Democrat in town, and a 6th floor window was involved. Yup, must be an assassination plot!
 
2008-08-25 07:11:56 PM
It's just more bullshiat to get more media coverage for the poor guy
 
2008-08-25 07:12:35 PM
Don't worry. Even if someone does kill him, he'll rise back up from the dead three days later.

Good god, if that actually happened... what a horrible day for America that would be
 
2008-08-25 07:15:02 PM
Yeah, then we'll have to hide Obama eggs for our children to hunt at that time of the year every year.

/once a year is enough if you're in to that

Then Hillary would be the nominee. Horrible indeed.

Drug dealers carrying guns? In my Denver? Say it ain't so.

Who do you think is happier about this fanciful story ... Hillary or Barack?

Poor stupid meth heads. Probably small-time dealers.

But: The cops have decided that they were going to try to kill Obama. So, we have guys with meth, a rifle that is now called a "sniper rifle" and "one of the officer's (sic) who was briefed says he was told at least one of the suspects made statements to that effect." After how many hours of questioning?

Really. Think a meth head is steady enough to hit anything from a sniper's nest?

I'm just getting sick of FBI and other law enforcement drawing a conclusion and then cherry-picking the evidence to fit their assumptions, and ruining lives in the process. It nearly got my cousin booked on a murder charge when all the evidence cleared him.
 
2008-08-25 07:18:41 PM
Anybody get the creepy feeling that this is going to be a very commonplace headline for the next four to eight years.

You are just as stupid as the FBI if you assume that what happened to your cousin is standard custom and practice.

Maybe the idiot meth-head did plan to it. Maybe the cops aren't lying.

We don't know

Oh, I don't know...I think it might be rather pretty to watch the cities burn down while CNN ponders the collapse of western civilization.

It's a great way to get rid of the NRA.

"well they had guns! and..and...they don't like Obama!"
"obviously terrorists. waterboard 'em 'till they tell us what we wanted to hear!"

Have you seen what happens when a law enforcement agency names someone a "person of interest?"

Hell, even I was scared shiatless because I found some football tickets, and used them. Next thing I know, I'm hooked up to a lie detector, denying that I had broken into a store and cracked the safe. Then the cops tell me I failed the polygraph. Who knows if they were telling me the truth, but it was obvious that they were out to close the case rather than solve it.

Maybe you shouldn't have used football tickets that weren't yours?

I mean, what the f*ck did you think...the football ticket fairy dropped them on the side of the road for you to use?

Yeah... Hillary would be the democrat on the presidential ticket.
That would be horrible.
/I'll bet Hillary hired them.

See? They were totally justified in arresting that guy in Denver who wanted to shoot Nanci Pelosi with two rifles (and two handguns that he forgot about).

If Obama was killed, Hillary would become the Dem nominee and the wave of public sympathy for Obama would sweep her into the White House.

If Obama was shot and survived, McCain might as well pack up and head to one of his homes the next day.

I'm pretty sure Hillary hired these bozos.
Are they from Arkansas?
 
2008-08-25 07:57:08 PM
I Obama so much as stubs his toe for the next eight years, I'm going to assume Hillary is to blame.

She probably has Voodoo fetish dolls full of pins and a shrine to Kali set up in one of her bedrooms.
 
2008-08-25 07:58:35 PM
...and this is news how?!?!

oh wait, this is FARK.

sadly, and I don't condone any such actions....Obama's life WILL be endangered once he is elected....because some white nut-job is going to want to be famous for assassinating the 1st black president.....friggin nut jobs.
 
2008-08-25 07:58:41 PM
make me some tea: Then Hillary would be the nominee. Horrible indeed.

I've had horrible visions where Obama gets gunned down on stage. Hillary comes out and steps over the body to reach the podium. "Can I get some clean up over here?!"
/scary

Didn't Hillary already loan him her plane which malfunctioned in mid-flight and nearly crashed? One of the slides deployed which knocked out the stabilizer fin control if I recall correctly.
/I'm sure that happens all the time.
 
2008-08-25 08:00:33 PM
Meth-Heads for McCain!
 
2008-08-25 08:01:07 PM
Investigate Hillary, the assassin might be on her payroll.

Nope. McCain won't be much of a target.

here's a thought, they were some methed out retards who said the wrong thing while speeding on meth?
Or The story about killing obama is just to get more viewers on the 6 o'clock news.

Yeah, because up to now, a lack of media coverage has been a big problem.

Hillary is behind it, rest assured.

I've had that dream, except in mine she reaches into his chest, pulls out his heart, and holds it over her head, yelling "I'm the one! you all love me cause I'm the one".

That's the way the system works, the cops try to clear the case and the prosecutors want a conviction. To hell with the truth or justice, those are for pussy liberals.

It's actually just possible, you know, that there are white supremacists in this country who are angered that Barack Obama has a plausible chance of becoming President.

Did I say "possible?" I meant to say "factual." In fact, there was just a report on how they were sure the election of Barack Obama would cause white people to flock to the white banner in the coming race war.

Odds are it was just drug dealers, but why would the media miss out on a perfectly good chance to sensationalize a story?

Not going to vote for Obama, but good God, this would be horrible for the country. Hate to read stories like this..

captain_heroic44: It's actually just possible, you know, that there are white supremacists in this country who are angered that Barack Obama has a plausible chance of becoming President.

Absolutely. But do I think that these guys are them? No. In this particular case, I think we have some small-time thugs who are suddenly getting painted as Obama assassins.
