Obama faces 30 death threats a day, a 400 percent increase over those against George W. Bush when he was president, according to Ronald Kessler, a veteran investigative journalist and conservative and author of the new book, In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect.
The right-wing hate speech polluting the debate over health care is generating more and more threats against President Barack Obama, some truly frightening.
[W]hen Obama visited Phoenix on Aug. 17, local minister Steven Anderson of the Faithful World Baptist Church, who strongly expresses hatred for Obama in many of his sermons, told his congregation that he wished him dead.
In a disturbing twist, it was discovered that Chris Broughton, the man who brought an AR-15 assault rifle to the Phoenix rally where Obama spoke, had attended Anderson's sermon. In a later interview, Broughton said he concurred with his pastor's wish to see Obama "die and go to hell." As many as 12 men were seen walking around the Phoenix Convention Center with guns on that day.

Just because a person brings an unloaded firearm to show his support for gun rights and the NRA that means he wants to kill the president.
Let me clue you in on something, if our presidents policies are really that mainstream and popular, than surely the masses should easily be able to drown out any opposing sentiment

It is really pretty disgusting. It is also so very telling. Absolute loonies and their guns. All the talk about 'I can bring my gun to any rally I want because it is my RIGHT' really looks pretty pathetic when you realize, this was nto happining with Bush and now it is with Obama and it just so happens that there is a 400% increase in death threats.
The right has lost their minds, and please don't tell me this is not just the work of the right.
How absolutely disturbing that the right side of the political spectrum believes that violence is the answer.
