Because Dronetek - everything with Obama has to do with race - GAAAWD- didn't you know that? I agree with you 100% - you can't even tell anyone your not voting for him without the "why because he's black ?" question.
You'll note his supporters only mention hes mixed when it suits them. Any other time hes black again, because it suits them. All the while not realizing that THEY are the racists and the rest of could care less what his skin color is.

Anyone that is sick enough to consider assissination (or murder of any kind) should be locked away. Death threats to public officials have been around a long time and, sadly, they aren't something that will ever go away in the political arena.

Looks like a second man has threatened to kill Obama, this time a North Carolina man. The first guy was from Florida.
This just goes to what I said before - I feel that Obama's security team is going to need to be on the ball constantly and on the watch from whacko's like these, especially radical nutjobs from popular hate groups.

Did you read the entire article? From what I can tell, the only proof anyone has that this man harbors any serious intention of harming Obama is that people "overheard" him threatening to kill the senator. How many thousands of people have muttered, "I'd love to kill (insert political figure here)" in some form or another?
Did the man even have weapons or some sort of itinerary?
For all we know, he didn't even make the statements.
You ought to take these kinds of stories with a grain of salt. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama's camp floats this stuff out there in order to gain sympathy for their incredibly flawed candidate.

What's different in America today vs. 8 years ago? I'm not talking about the higher stock market or the lower unemployment rate of today, even at these times of pressing economic woes. I'm not talking about the lower taxes thanks to the Bush tax cuts. I'm not talking about the more secure borders, more secure airlines or the increased national security.
