    US Secret Service hunts Facebook user after presidential death poll
    The US Secret Service is hunting for a Facebook user who posted a poll on the social networking website asking if President Obama should be killed.

    The poll offered four possible answers – “yes”, “no”, “maybe” and “If he cuts my healthcare” – and received 730 responses before the authorities were notified and Facebook removed it from its site.

    Threatening the President is a crime under federal law and the Secret Service, which is responsible for Mr Obama’s safety, said last month it had seen a 400 per cent surge in death threats against him since the launch of his push for healthcare reform earlier this year.

    News of the poll prompted demands from Democratic Party activists that whoever was behind it be prosecuted and jailed, but the Secret Service left open the possibility today that it was a high school prank that could still go unpunished.

    Posting a poll was not necessarily against the law, a source close to the investigation told The Times, adding: “What we have to do is determine the person’s intent and the only way we can do that is to interview him.”

    A Facebook spokesman said the poll had been posted to the site by a “third-party developer”, whose content is not subject to screening for offensive material.

    Some of those who would like Mr Obama dead have said so with little obvious fear of repercussions. One demonstrator at an anti-healthcare reform rally in New Hampshire last month carried a gun and a placard with the message: “It’s time to water the tree of liberty” – a reference to a warning from Thomas Jefferson, often quoted on the extreme right, that “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots”.

    Earlier this month the Rev Wiley Drake, a Southern Baptists minister in Orange County, California, told an interviewer that he was praying for Mr Obama’s death. Far from being muzzled, he has won a first-round victory in an effort to show in court that the President was not born a US citizen. A preliminary date for a hearing has been set for January 2010.

    What the hell does this have to do with the open carier in New Hampshire?

    Both are persecuted for publically stating their anti-Obama views?

    He's not suggesting that this action should be taken.
    He makes no claim of planning to execute this action himself.
    It's an OPINION POLL, not a threat to BHO nor the office of the POTUS - nada mas, nada menos

    It's free speech and it's being stifled.

    what I see are two unrelated events stung together by a "news source" in an effort to make a coherent argument that OC'ers and gun owners are evil....

    Nothing in the OP leads me to believe the same person was involved in both events. However, that is exactly the conclusion that the London Times would have us believe. I hate the communist Times--it is a worthless example of a socialist newspaper.

    If Obama dies, "Babbit Biden" is president. :?Get rid of Biden and President Nancy Pelosi is the result :shock:Get rid of HER and it's President Hillary Rodham Clinton :what:We all need to pray the SS does its job and well. This is a problem best solved by the BALLOT.

    The gubernatorial elections coming up this November are looking good. In Virginia Creigh Deeds is tanking badly, and the appalling Gov. Corzine of New Jersey is about to be tossed out on his kiester. Those electoral results will likely show waffling "Blue Dog" Democrats that they have much more to fear from angry voters than from Rahm Emmanuel. And it will definitely show that the "Tea Party" activists are not 'rentamobs" but a real expression of voter rejection of this runaway socialism.

    The SS is understandably nervous, and IMHO carrying a firearm AND a sign announcing that maybe it's time for some bloodshed is damned stupid. I understand the frustration, and we all need to be prepared for the horrible day when the Second Amendment may be called upon to defend the Constitution. (And may that day never come) But right now the best cure for what ails us is vigorous application of the FIRST Amendment, such as we have here and in thousands of other forums. Check my blog, does it seem to you I am afraid??

    As to the "link" between the NH Open Carrier, that seems to me to be largely in the mind of the weenie who wrote the article. I half expected him to be the guy who posted the poll, but as far as I can tell he was not.

    As for myself I have a vid on YouTube wherein I call Obama a POS out loud and in so many words. That was posted months ago and the SS has yet to contact me over anything. And they won't. It is my RIGHT, and it is yours. USE IT.

    Actually, third in line is Senate Majority Leader.But then POTUS, VP and Speaker of the House would allhave to die at the same time for him to move into 1600. But then the U.S. Constitution does not address beyond VP. So ifPOTUS andVP were to die simultaneously, would it be Constitutional for it to go to Speaker of the House? I don't think so. The line of succession was passed into law, but the Constitution is silent past VP. If the Constitution is silent on a subject, the Feds can't do it. Well, not legally anyway. These days they do what they damn well please. Pelosi is probably hoping that BHO and JB get knocked off the same day.

    Hey, Ya thinkmaybe Pelosi is "third-party developer"?

    Actually, you are also incorrect as the Senate Majority leader is not even in the top 18.

    It is the President Pro Tempore of the Senate (Robert Byrd) that comes after the House Speaker.

    Oh, yeah. I stand corrected. President "sheets" Byrd, former Imperial Genius (or whatever) of some Ku Klux Klan faction. Robert Byrd, who has said "ni%$er" on the floor of the Senate, but is still treasured by the Ratz for his party-line vote. Yeah. But do you think that doddering old fool would get in Hillary's way? Yuri Andropov lasted longer as President of the USSR than Byrd would. He would blink out faster thn Cherninko, even.

    Right now it is a fond hope of mine that, now that Roman Polanski has been captured and is fighting extradition for his statutory rape conviction and half of Hollywood and a large part of the idiot Ubamanistas plus a good part of Europe is mounting a "Free Roman Polanski" movement, Obama uses his Executive Clemency power to pardon the pint-sized pervert. Or at least (since Polanski was convicted under State charges) orders the DOJ to cool it. THAT would be the worst mistake ANY American politician has made since Ted Kennedy left Mary Jo to drown.

    Sooner or later Obama will bring about his own downfall, and he will drag the Ratz who sold him to us with him. I don't care where Lee Harvey Oswald is. We don't need him.

    Oh, it hurt his career alright. He was never elected President amid the bumper stickers saying: "Chappaquiddick 1, 3 Mile Island 0."

    And how much money did he not make as a senator for eternity? He had more power in Senate than he would have as president.

    Which is more than we can say about "President" Obama, who doesn't wield any real power, je's does whatever Massa Ried and Missy Pelosi tells hin t' do. Jejune calls for a nuke-free globe while North Korea and Iran laugh at him; public speeches that sound like whistle-stop stumping WHEN HE IS ALREADY ELECTED and now, in the face of all kinds of stuff, where is he?? In Copenhagen trying to get the Olympics for Detroit, of all the ratholes in this country. (That's kinda like having a ratty miniature golf course host the PGA Tour). Every single day he shows himself to be the imbecelic nincompoop he is. Make no mistake, there is a BIG damp spot showing on the face of the DemonRat dam. They thought that foisting this hustler off on the American people would be their ticket to get total control. Believe this: They are aware that it will not work much longer and are in full panic mode right now. They are pulling out every tired stop and corny old trick in their playbook and it is NOT WORKING.

    Geeze I really should have put this in my blog. Well, I guess I get more readership here.....

    I stand corrected. Obama is trying to get the Olympics for CHICAGO not DETROIT. I shoulda known better than to think a DemonRat would do anything that would actually benefit the people who need it. Then they might not be poor anymore, want to hang onto their stuff, and start voting Republican.

    Hey Reb, I know from my history books and restaurant-ordering Vietnamese that "Viet Cong" is short for "Vietnam Cong Sam" OR "Communist party Vietnam"; I even know that Dac Cong is "Special Communist (forces)". What's a "Sat Cong"? personally I think they're "Dien Gai Dao Cong" (rough translation chicken head or Bird brain).
