I remember when MSNBC was covering Obama's first 100 days in office and a black pundit was asked how she thought our first black president was doing. She replied that many in the black community were just glad that he was still alive. I'm so glad I live in a christian nation. Good christians with a bible in one hand and a gun in the other. This is such horrible news that I hate to even post it. Where were the assassins during Bush's two terms--the worst president in our history? Oh, but he was white so we don't have to kill him.


Secret Service strained as leaders face more threats

WASHINGTON - The unprecedented number of death threats against President Obama, a rise in racist hate groups, and a new wave of antigovernment fervor threaten to overwhelm the US Secret Service, according to government officials and reports, raising new questions about the 144-year-old agency’s overall mission.

The Secret Service is tracking a far broader range of possible threats to the nation’s leaders, the officials said, even as it also investigates financial crimes such as counterfeiting as part of its original mandate.

The new demands are leading some officials, both inside and outside the agency, to raise the possibility of the service curtailing or dropping its role in fighting financial crime to focus more on protecting leaders and their families from assassination attempts and thwarting terrorist plots aimed at high-profile events.
