    And then I went on to list a variety of reasons why, to me, it would not make sense at face value for the net number of death threats towards Obama to be the same as those for Bush and Clinton.

    The title of my diary is a direct quote from the article(s) in question, and a separate issue.

      But I notice the article you link doesn't seems to have either a source or date that I could find.  So I am unsure how much stock to put in that one.   We have an unsourced blog saying four times higher, and a quote from the head of the Secret Service saying no marked change.  

      And the additional stuff you cite doesn't necessarily get to this question of the number of threats. If the facts as try appear to be does not seem right to you, then either the facts are wrong or your suppositions are.  In fact it appears that the collection of vile racist statements out there has not translated into a sustained uptick in actual threats.   There are a number of reasons why that might be.

        ...is precisely the apparent paradox my Update 2 tackles.

      I'd missed you additional links.
