Can you see where this is going yet? or where it has already went?!

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- The Secret Service is investigating a man who authorities said held a sign reading "Death to Obama" outside a town hall meeting on health-care reform in western Maryland.

The sign also read, "Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids," referring to the first name of President Barack Obama's wife, said Washington County Sheriff's Capt. Peter Lazich.

Lazich said deputies detained the unidentified, 51-year-old man near the entrance to Hagerstown Community College about 1 p.m. Wednesday after getting calls from a number of people attending the meeting held by Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md. Obama was not at the meeting.

The sheriff's office turned the man over to the Secret Service, Lazich said.

  • I see this going to martial law very quickly. We will have troops in our towns. People need to stop acting crazy unless they are prepared to die. Noone wants that.

    Where was your outrage when people were doing this to Bush? Where was your outrage when antiwar people (not the Phelps family even though they are democrats) picketed funerals and spit on soldiers when they come home. Oh thats right the liberal media does not air that for all to see. They pick and choose. Bush had more death threats than any other President. There were signs made that called for him to be brought in dead or alive with a gun pointed at his head and alive crossed out. I heard no outrage about that from Democrats. You said we are crazy and made that stuff up. Even when there was a news story on it your people would say it was the person fault and they don't represent your whole party. Well I am saying that now. This person is a nut and responsible for his own behavior. You can generalize with your small brain all you like.

    I am from Kansas you half wit and he was a Democrat. Phelps ran on the Democrat ticket for Govenor more than once and 20k of your kind voted for him in the Democrat primary. He helped Al Gore actually campaigned for him way back in the day. There are photos of this. He is an extremist that came from your party.  Unlike you I do know my facts before I speak.   I realize you will have a hard time wrapping your tiny brain around that but he was a Democrat loved Gore voted for Democrats.  Now he hates both parties demonized Bush as much as Obama.  You guys are responsible for him if we are responsible for this idiot in your original post.

  • Since Mr Obama took office, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400 per cent from the 3,000 a year or so under President George W. Bush, according to Ronald Kessler, author of In the President's Secret Service

    I think the media is somewhat at fault, especially Lumbaugh and Glenn Beck!
