Why does everyone want Obama dead?

It's a bit scary. So many references have been made to assassinating Obama that it's almost a bit nerve racking. Everyone from Nobel Prize winners to Fox correspondents, maybe even his rival, Hillary Clinton.

Doris Lessing, British Nobel Literature Laureate: "[That] would certainly not last long, a black man in the position of president. They would murder him."

Liz Trotta, Fox News Correspondent: "Now we are reading suggestions that somebody knock off Osama....ahh, uhmm, Obama. Well, both if we could."

And, finally you have all heard of the Hillary Clinton RFK remark, right? In which she says that she is going to stay in the presidential race until the end, just like her husband, because anything may happen. She meant to say that anything can and might happen but it ended up sounding like an indirect way saying that Obama will be assassinated.

Hillary said: "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June. We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June."

What makes it a bit nerve-racking is that we are about to start the month of June. Hillary should have probably not said anything about assassinated Presidential hopefuls in the month of June.

I honestly, never thought about the idea that Obama might be assassinated and it's a bit scary. The more people bring up this idea the more likely it will be that someone will actually follow through with this event. Hopefully nothing happens and Obama loses quietly to Hillary Clinton, haha.

That is scary! I NEVER would have thought so many people want Obama dead for just being a presidential hopeful. This is the world we live in. We can only hope and pray that nothing does happen to Obama.

This is a distubing phenomenom I was playing an online game tonight when one of the players started bashing Obama. I said uyou may be talking about our next president. he or she came back with "I'm sorry but he's going to die". What are these folks scared of. It's not race... I believe anyone who talks of helping the average American is marked and the hounds come a sniffing.
