29. The Secret Service is overworked by the Tea Terrorists. And this line from the story:
A Tribune reader who alerted the newspaper to the display said it is getting attention in the small town, with people even stopping to take photographs. The reader asked not to be identified because he has relatives in the neighborhood whom he fears could face retaliation.
Just imagine, living in a neighborhood controlled by the mafia. Speak out and we'll hurt your family. This is nasty stuff.
I saw where a house where a veteran has a lot of GOP signs in his yard and one of those white-faced Obama posters in his window. He has Christian signs, too. Does he think Jesus likes his poster?
As far as the Secret Service goes read this:
Report: Unprecedented Number Of Death Threats Against Obama -- And Secret Service Overwhelmed
The Boston Globe reports that a new internal Congressional Research Service report and government sources say there are an unprecedented number of death threats against President Obama -- and that the Secret Service is insufficiently funded and staffed to deal with them.
According to The Globe, a report issued by the Congressional Research Service shows that the Secret Service is investigating more threats against government officials than ever before, and questions whether the 144-year old agency should continue probing financial crimes, as was its original mandate.
In total, the Secret Service regularly protects 32 people and arranges security for high-profile events. But the election of Barack Obama has increased threats against the president's life by 400 percent from his predecessor, according to "In the President's Secret Service," Ronald Kessler's account of presidential security. The Secret Service has looked into a number of race-based threats since Obama took office, and a Facebook poll that asked "Should Obama be killed?" President Obama also had a Secret Service detail 18 months before the election, the earliest of any Presidential candidate.
