    Default Barack Obama Postsecret card, slightly worrying..



    It says under the postage label 'It's only a matter of time...'

    I don't quite know the sentiment of the sender, but my husband was talking to an American who said that Obama will probably be assassinated if he comes to be prez. I hate this world sometimes.

    I don't normally post much about politics, it's totally over my head, but I wanted to share this with you and hear your opinions on this card. It chilled me, TBH.

    It's just a prediction. It's nothing people haven't thought of. I hope Obama is cautious before an after the election.

    The level of hate in this country sickens me sometimes. I am disgusted that there is a single person that would even consider not voting for, let along KILLING a man because of the color of his skin.

    Sure, it happens, and has happened a lot. I know. People are threatened...

    But for fucks sake its 2008. This is a man that is giving HOPE to millions around the world.

    I sincerely hope nothing like this happens. But, I too, wonder......

    It is something we all worry about-for every President,no matter the color. There are nuts that crave the fame. Good ol Ragean took the last bullet. He was pretty popular-just nuts.

    I think that makes it clear we have outgrown that fad.

    I think the crazies shoot only good Presidents. So Dubya was safe.

    I find the message in the card disturbing, but I've been hearing almost the same thing from some of my African-American friends. 'I hope he doesn't get assassinated' is the thing I hear the most....it's amazing how worried some people are about Obama's safety.

    But as much as it sucks, the worry is sort of justified, especially from those right-wing wackos.

    It's a sick card. But the degree of anger that's apparent in the general population now, because of the level we have sunk to as a nation, because of the failing economy, the failing war, the failing foreign policies, I think that if - godforbid - somebody would attempt to assassinate our next president, he'd be lynched at the spot by that angry mob - forget about a trial.
    But, just to be on the safe side, I think Obama's campaign should start using an Obama Hologram at rallies.

    I saw that postcard too this morning. I was worried too.

    We've been discussing the US elections alot at work and sadly enough a majority of people believe that he will not make it through a first term because of all the crazies out there. I hope they're wrong.

    GW has an insurance policy. It's called Dick Cheney.

    Quite possibly one of the most strategic VP picks ever.

    A lot of people are concerned and I must say I am too. I worry about him and hope he and his family have one Hell of a Secret Service team. The attitude in our country is very explosive right now and people are doing crazy things to themselves and each other.

    The sad thing is that i have heard it said that NOONE is safe from an assassin if the killer is willing to trade their own life. If someone really wants to get Obama, they will .
