    Not saying anybody should do it, but killing you wouldn't destabilize the global political climate. No offense, but unless you're a major world leader or the head of the Illuminati, you're probably not very important. In any case threatening to kill anybody is still illegal.

    The level of hatred coming out of the Far Right is really quite staggering. I think deep down it's fueled by good old fashioned racism.

    Every first lady is going to do all the same stuff Michelle is doing, until the United States collapses or the sun goes supernova. Whichever comes first.

    I never heard of Nancy, Barb, or Hillary milking the position for all its worth. Well, toward the end Hillary wanted some china and curtains...maybe some stationary as souvenirs for her 8 year vacation...but I have never seen a woman just take all she can get as much as Michelle.

    No crap its a friggin law. This is a political website. We're debating a point. Please try to keep up.

    Also, whether threatening to kill someone is crime or not is vague and varies. For instance, many people threaten bodily harm to athletes and their families all the time. You never hear of any of those people being prosecuted.

    That's because either
    a)you're really young, or
    b)you're focused in on Michelle more than the others.

    Meh, the world moved on when JFK and Lincoln were killed. Just sayin. I'm not wishing death upon anyone, but one man isn't so important that the entire world will fall into chaos if he's killed.

    Whatever chaos will or will not ensue the president is a major and obvious target. And if some of the comments in this thread alone are anything to go by the Secret Service is entirely justified in feeling a little jittery.

    34 and not focused on anyone/anything. The biggest claim you can make is that "media wasn't as all-encompassing in those days" with the lack of 24 hour news channels - and if Betty or Rosalynn or Nancy took some posh million-dollar getaway, it slipped past the men with the cameras.
