PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A local newspaper in northwest Pennsylvania apologized on Friday for running a classified advertisement that called implicitly for the assassination of U.S. President Barack Obama.
The Warren Times Observer, with a circulation of about 11,000, ran the ad in Thursday's paper and pulled it as soon as it was discovered by a manager, said publisher John Elchert.
The ad read: "May Obama follow in the footsteps of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy," Elchert said.

I don't see a problem with it as they neither suggested action to enable such an event, nor did they propose others act on such a suggestion.
To state an opinion is fine.
Morrisey of the Smith's did so on his website.
Like saying I wish Obama was (white, conservative, juiced, etc.)

Poor taste. I don't like Obama. I don't like his policies, his cabinet, his ideology, but the majority of sheep did vote for him so he is our president. We can only hope to uphold certain standards that the liberals DIDN'T when Bush was in office.
