Threats on his life

You’ve all seen the news item of a Florida man arrested for making public statements threatening Obama’s life. What a kook!

But someone pointed out that he was making similar threats on GWBs life at the same event. The talk show host wondered why the man wasn’t arrested for threatening a seated president.

Perhaps the Secret Service decided not to charge him for threats against Bush because the media wouldn’t cover it anyway!

It brings to mind the comment made on the floor of Congress in 1975 after Lynnette Fromme tried to shoot President Gerald Ford. Weary of the Nixon Watergate days someone said something to the effect, “Finally, a President worth assassinating.”

(If anyone can fill in the memory blanks of the exact quote and who said it, please drop in a comment.)
