  • I agree with Boehner, "We need to take that anger and channel it into positive change."

  • Boehner and his buddies encouraged this behavior. Their rhetoric and ridiculous behavior stirred a frenzy, him and his peeps are some of the cause...Death panels, taking away our freedoms, granny die sooner.....


    The solution, ARREST and PROSECUTE...

  • Violence and threats are unacceptable. When the perpetrators are caught they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  • Your opinion, sweet... Funny... It looks like something Maddow, Olbermann, or Mathews said.. Right before they cut the shot of the racist [black] man with a gun at a tea party... Sure glad your opinion isn't the majority of America.... Given your comment~Stick to the low ratings of MSNBC.. It suits you. :oP

  • The cause: Republican party have far more CRAZY people in the party.

    On the heels of health care, a new Harris poll reveals Republican attitudes about Obama: Two-thirds think he’s a socialist, 57 percent a Muslim—and 24 percent say “he may be the Antichrist.”

    Totally insane.

    Solution: Republican leaders need to be responsible and NOT provoke these insane people.

  • They should be prosecuted and given jail time. Just like anyone else threatening assault and/or bodily harm.
    I am sure that all those that have been providing very provocative rhetoric that fuels these nutjobs will be shocked, and appalled. No big surprise there.

  • They should be prosecuted.

    In addition, both sides of the isle should work towards more honest and civil discourse. Fact checking is great, unfortunately not everyone does so. A lot of people just listen to the talking heads and get fired up. It's irresponsible for people who have a public platform to inflame people's emotions. Everyone is stressed out right now, the economy sucks, and people don't feel like they can trust their representation (both sides of the isle).

    Those who resort to violence are solely responsible for their actions, but the political environment is not supporting rational efforts towards resolution.
