The Boston Globe reports that a new internal Congressional Research Service report and government sources say there are an unprecedented number of death threats against President Obama -- and that the Secret Service is insufficiently funded and staffed to deal with them.
According to The Globe, a report issued by the Congressional Research Service shows that the Secret Service is investigating more threats against government officials than ever before, and questions whether the 144-year old agency should continue probing financial crimes, as was its original mandate.

We are talking about a human being with a wife and kids. Take away the title of President he is still a person. Not just a stuffed suit without feelings.

I doubt Obama's going to be assainated. It's a different time, the secret service is better than ever.
They might lack the people to investigate threats, but they don't lack the people to protect the president. And if they do, the president should re-think his travel plans.

It is a sign that perhaps maybe President Obama needs to be paying attention to, and that is that the people of the country are not happy with the policies and direction of the country.
