Default Speculating presidential assassination is unacceptable.

Don't do it.

It's a legit topic, there is a real danger that is presented with this president that we have never seen about the likelihood of attempts on his life. I'm sure threats have already been made.

It's a legit topic maybe on another forum.

On this one, I won't allow this sort of nonsense speculation to go unchecked. If an attempt is made on his life, or something in the news drives this topic, so be it. But someone just openly speculating that he's going to be assassinated doesn't serve anyone - and puts people (including yourself and this forum in general) at unecessary risk.

I would have openly speculated of a GW assasination but there was always Cheney in the wings, and that would have been much worse. So I have bitten my tongue. January can't get here fast enough.

Well yeah threats have already been made. One thwarted in Colorado another in Tennessee. But this is tied to stuff said last night.

Its ok to say I hope it doesn't happen. Thats not what TJ is refering to I think.

Has anyone who has posted in this thread called for the assassination of Bush. I don't think so and that wouldn't make anyone here hypocrites. No matter how bad you think a president is there are lines you never cross.

You're right. We have all shared the nightmare of George Bush.

LOOK at me , I'm a POS who finds joking about a world leaders death funny, if it's one i disagree with .. But don't you dare say something about someone i agree with ... You look like timothy leary on crack i might add ...



.... Now I'm one of the people who went after Bmarsh615 saying stuff lastnight about Obama in PMs to Buff AND I PUSHED FOR PERM BANNING ...

But it goes both ways .... so can maybe both side stop wishing people die and $hit ...


TJ I think any cheering the subject of a politician being assassinated should get you one month ... and then perma ban if you can't learn .

Show me where I have ever wished any sort of physical harm on Bush.

You liberal clowns have done nothing but cheer the death of any conservative, or Republican for that matter...remember Tony Snow, Jerry Falwell?

You wrote some of the most hateful crap on here for eight years....

I'll take that as a "no, I can't point to any instance where you ever wished physical harm (let alone assassination) on Bush."

TJ, this is from Newsweek today. I take it this kind of thing is okay to post (if not, feel free to delete it).

Quote:
The Obama campaign was provided with reports from the Secret Service showing a sharp and disturbing increase in threats to Obama in September and early October, at the same time that many crowds at Palin rallies became more frenzied. Michelle Obama was shaken by the vituperative crowds and the hot rhetoric from the GOP candidates. "Why would they try to make people hate us?" Michelle asked a top campaign aide.

If there is news driving the discussion, I don't have a problem with it.

Where I have a problem is when we start seeing this sort of thing:

"Oh well, it doesn't matter anyway because he's going to be shot in the head within a year - I'm just worried about Biden after that."

"Any guesses on how long it will be before Obama gets to see his 72 virgins..."


This is the sort of gutter politics that I would like to see this forum be above.
