Trotta: "And now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, uh Obama. Well, both, if we could."
ThinkProgress reported last week that Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal (R) was forced to apologize to First Lady Michelle Obama after forwarding an email to fellow lawmakers that called her “Mrs. YoMama” and compared her to the Grinch. Earlier that same week, the Lawrence Journal-World was sent another email that O’Neal had forwarded to House Republicans that referred to President Obama and a Bible verse that says “Let his days be few” and calls for his children to be without a father and his wife to be widowed.
Let his days be few; and let another take his office
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
O’Neal forwarded the prayer with his own message: “At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”
PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Republican sheriff in Massachusetts is defending a joke he told at a St. Patrick's Day breakfast in which Abraham Lincoln visits President Barack Obama in a dream and suggests he go to the theater.

For every Trump supporter rallying behind this, just remember the left will use this against you someday. And it won't even be someone saying "assassinate." It'll be much more tame.
I don't think she actually meant this. My guess is she was in a spurt of anger and wasn't thinking coherently. She DID delete the entry, so she had some presence of mind.
A lot of twitter and bloggers and other should be weary what they say. This could easily be a free speech issue. Also remember Trump's wife has spoken about "bullying". I would be very careful what this because it could balloon into something very scary. And I was bullied growing up. These people will go too far, mark my words. The road to hell is...
.....paved with good intentions.

How great would it be, if people who advocated for free speech (especially in these times) fought for her to stay?
Yeah, she'll carry that stigma for the rest of her life, but the right to speak freely is a cornerstone in a free society.
