    This was a complete falsehood pushed by a guy who was writing a book.

    The director of the Secret Service today disputed widely-reported claims that President Obama is receiving more death threats than previous presidents.

    At a congressional hearing into the White House security breach that took place last week, when Tareq and Michaele Salahi "crashed" the White House state dinner, Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan said the current threat level against the president is normal.

    "The threats right now ... is the same level as it has been for the previous two presidents at this point in their administrations," Sullivan said.

    I read the polls about how irrational many Republicans are about Obama:

    24 percent think he wants the terrorists to win.

    31 percent think he’s a racist who hates white people.

    36 percent don’t think he’s a U.S. citizen.

    And 63 percent think he’s a socialist. (I wish he were.)

    And I’ve seen some of the comparisons of Obama with Hitler on the farthest reaches of the tea party rallies and on Glenn Beck.

    And 58% aren't sure where he was born.... that's the number that will kill his reelection chances unless he does something about it.

    Ain’t helping the trust factor between the voters and the democrat party either.

    No, like two crazy US citizens trying to test airline security - perhaps news reporters? I tried to consider ALL possibilities.

    That whole 400% thing turned out to be BS.

    Depends on who you want to believe.

    UPDATE: Kessler emailed Salon to say he stands by his story, but declined to give any sourcing for his story. "The book cites a number of instances of the Secret Service misleading the public or Congress, so I am not surprised that they are not being forthright on these issues," he wrote.

    I would guess that anyone in the public eye has probably received at least one death threat at some point...

    Are we gonna start comparing numbers now?

    I can't help what they title their articles.

    Tit for tat?


    After Health Care Vote - threat to Democrats



    Reps. Louise Slaughter and Bart Stupak have received death threats.

    A tea party participant published what he thought was Rep. Thomas Perriello’s home address and urged disgruntled voters to “drop by” for a “good face-to-face chat.”

    Vandals broke windows at Slaughter’s office in New York and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’s office in Arizona.

    And angry voters are planning to protest this weekend at the home of Steve Driehaus — who’s already seen a photograph of his children used in a newspaper ad published by reform opponents.

    If they've got shaved heads and Nazi tattoos, you can bet I'd be doing a thorough check on them. Or members of Phelps' "Church". There are more "red flags" out there than just being Muslim, but Muslim is a legitimate reason to look a little deeper.
