Secret Service probes comment about Obama in Louisiana


www.usatoday.com

Santorum was at the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office Rifle Range on Friday morning as part of his campaign through Louisiana before Saturday's Republican presidential primary.

While Santorum was firing off some rounds from a gun at a paper target before delivering his campaign speech, an unidentified woman in the crowd shouted: "Pretend it's Obama."

I have no idea what you all believe or who you believe in the upcoming election but this sh!t is getting out of hand. People making remarks like this at particular functions knowing all to well that security is beefed up and ears are all stretched out, is simply asking to be dragged away and questioned.

Why on earth would anyone voice such a threat let alone a threat towards the President is beyond me. In my opinion she should have been dragged by her hair to gtmo and held indefinitely. I wonder how she or anyone would feel if a gang parked outside her home and shouted the same thing " hey b*tch, we know who you are..! click click ! , > Anyone care to guess how long it would have taken her to dial 911 to have the gangs arrested and investigated ?

Stupid people are either genetically stupid or have some ill concept of what freedom of speech is.

Well in all fairness if she just said Obama, it could of been anybody. Now if she said President Obama then they have a case. I am sure somewhere in this world there is another person named Obama. Just sayin is all.

People have always made joking remarks like that. What has gotten out of hand is ultra-sensitivity and the inability to think rationally and consider context. All that does is stifle freedom of speech.

I totaly understand and respect what you have said but given that it was said during " Saturday's Republican presidential primary function" does and make it clear that it was directed to the O.B. and not some other guy who was cooking beef at his home named Obama.

Oh, the irony. 'cerebralassassins' would like to 'drag someone their hair to gtmo (sic) and held indefinitely' for what they think.

'a gang parked outside her home and shouted the same thing " hey b*tch, we know who you are..! click click ! , >' (sic) is totally the same thing as making a quip about someone whom is probably many hundreds of miles from you at the moment.

I feel nauseated. Alas, I've been the victim of a cerebral assassination.


Wait.

Maybe it isn't irony at all, and this persons goal is to try to ruin rational thought across his internet paths. I AM A VICTIM!

Threat?

Your kidding me. There was never any threat to our presidents life. What if Santorum were throwing water balloons at targets? I suppose you would think that is just fine but thinking about hitting Obama with your bullet is wrong? That's just using your imagination. Santorum can do that, no law against it. The lady who shouted broke no laws either. No harm was done. There was never and INTENT to actually go and blow Obama's head off.

Dragged by Her Hair to Gitmo - for suggesting that Santorum use his IMAGINATION ??? Dude.. what kind of sick twisted horrible person are you?

Are we now to have Thought Police? What about Freedom of Speech? Dude if that's Your America then I have to tell you you are suffering from massive delusions.

Lets exercise some Imagination. Try not to think about these things. If you do, your guilty, and should be dragged off to gitmo! ( by your account)

Obama under a bus doing 80 on the freeway.

Obama falling off a 1000 foot cliff.

Obama, his wife, kids, and whole cabinet getting poisoned and dying from the bad fish served at the White House dinner.

How about something less graphic like the White House getting nuked?

Did you think of any of that.. even for a split second? - Imagination. No harm, no intent to do harm. There are even video games on the Net where Obama is getting killed in different ways, just for fun because everybody likes to pole fun at the presidents now and then. What you suggested is much more harmful than anything I, this lady or Santorum imagined.

Er.. No. I don't. Words are just that - words. If there is no intent to action and never was, then who cares how it personally makes one "feel". It's a non issue. If this woman urged Santorum to actually get a posse together and act on something like this - then that would be a whole different ballgame.

I'm with you on this one. If you don't think people already say similar things in the comfort of their own home or with friends sometimes than you are living in a fake reality. Just because you think or say something like that doesn't make you a threat of any kind.

I deeply respect what you have posted and do support what your idea is , but hey, go say that in a safe zone when he, himself is present, and you begin to understand how fast and swift # happens. Its one thing to say something among friends or in an open gathering and its an entirely different issue when your within the impact zone. Get my drift. ?

Ridiculous. This is the equivalent of a thought-crime.

Second line.

I will only grant you that the remark was in bad taste. Sure the lady was not thinking - she should have known there would be some backlash ( due to the Press) and perhaps she did and did not care. The investigation probably is standard procedure for anything like this - they do a background check to determine if this lady is a threat. it's short, simple and closed quickly with the findings like the thousands of other background checks that say , nope, she's just a normal citizen exercising her right to free speech.. that's what they find most of the time. The Press just likes to sensationalize these things for ratings.

Yes i understand and agree, but out of those hundreds and thousands that do make such remarks it only requires one individual, this is my point.

It only takes one person and that is a sh!t load of resources that are used and sadly that also has a cost factor that sadly the tax payer will pay. I am in no way trying to tie in the cost factor to any event, i am merely making it obvious that anytime some individual makes such a remark in an open space and within a political gathering its standard that a great deal of resources are immediately put online....now wouldn't those resources be far more productive in another aspect of leadership rather than investigation. But hey, let me add, i am in no way saying not express your opinion but perhaps a more rational approach to self expression should be thought out prior to making such obvious sub standard intellectual opinions when anyone is within the impact zone.

Its not what Santorum would do but what would an individual who lacks mental stability would do. Its similar to if the president went on national television and said, its fine to loot public stores but we must do it in an orderly manner, do you see my point or is that also not clear. Again, its not what is being said but by who and during what event that holds the key and in unlikely scenario if someone went ahead and did what she voiced and the person was detained and explained to the officers that he heard that on television and so he though it was okay to do so, would that lady be in a world of sh!t ? , yes she would, would she be jailed...no she wouldn't.

Its all about using ones cerebral cortex or in plain English " use it, don't abuse it "

Now that's cool, but i would rather not school you as i am not qualified to travel down that road but i am sure those who are qualified would gladly offer their services for further education. In closing, you and myself who are simply posting does fall under the freedom of speech or within the parameters of such a term. Now we could drag this topic on for hundreds of pages and we both know what is and what isn't freedom of speech so i guess we both agree to disagree and disagree to agree.

p.s. you might be surprised as to what lengths i go to enforce what you assume or may not assume what and how i support such terms as freedom of speech or freedom of information.

Exactly, and IMHO it wouldn't surprise me if lady that said it wasn't a plant and that this incident wasn't set up just to help tighten the noose on us just a little more. 10 years ago I would have never thought like that but now days I question all I see. Anything they can do to justify infringing on our Bill of Rights is done.
