I don't know what he can do about it. Perhaps put secret service guys in the audience and when the idiots shout 'kill him' then they can pounce on them and arrest them - charge them with threatening a POTUS candidate? Perhaps have cameras stationed to see the audience and focus in on whoever is doing the shouting?

What I want is for these people to stop trying to demonize Obama as a "terrorist" for being associated for being associated with a guy who was a "radical" during another turbulent time in the course of US history.....the 60's...back when Obama himself was only a child.
Ayers absolutely was (and still is) radical.
There is no excuse for his behavior. None.
In fact, nobody died as a result of bombings in which Ayers said he participated as part of the Weather Underground, at the New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, in a men's lavatory in the Capitol building in 1971 and in a women's restroom in the Pentagon in 1972. The deaths to which Clinton referred were of three Weather Underground members who died when their own "bomb factory" exploded in a Greenwich Village townhouse on March 6, 1970. Ayers was not present. Also, two police officers were murdered in connection with the robbery of a Brinks armored car by Weather Underground members in 1981. That was about a year after Ayers had turned himself in and after all charges against him had been dropped.

My opinions on this election:
McCain was "given" the nomination as repayment for the dirty tricks pulled on him in 2000. This is his last hurrah, the last chance to atone for dirty tricks.
Obama, on the other hand, is a different case. He has come up too far, too fast. Nothing in his background warrants this. His associations are suspect. He is beholden to someone, whether you call it the "Shadow Gov't" or whatever. But he is in someone's pocket, imo. And they aren't Boy Scouts.

But do you forget that each man is convinced they are just and in good faith?
This is, at its core, a battle of ideas and a battle of perception. I can recognize that
people fear and mistrusts OBAMA. But this judgment hinges entirely on a personal world view. Just like people are attracted to types or enjoy a certain flavor of ice cream. Punching is okay but pulling hair is out of the question.
I'm not a fool... I read and I enjoy to learn. My parents are highly educated and I am a
black sheep. I believe with all my might that the USA has been going in the wrong direction. I have seen many choices and decisions that I have viewed as borderline lunacy. I am not mentally, deficient or criminally insane. Better yet, I can really understand the idea behind peoples ideals. My attempt is to establish myself as an independent free thinker.
These current political realities are often converse of my will, morality and logic.
This particular action seems akin to the mindset that has contributed to the current
conundrum. In short, my instinctual reaction is to to be reminded of the last eight years.
What I view as good to some is the antithesis of hell for another.
Why this is so I don't know???
