  •  When President Obama visited Dallas... (2+ / 0-)

    A couple of weeks ago I remarked at the bar "The President, Dallas, November...what about that makes me nervous?"

    Imagine my shock when a woman...a nurse for Christ's sake...said "We should be so lucky."

    To me the entire notion of endorsing the murder of the President...any President...is just shocking.  Even as I detested Ronald Reagan but I was happy that he survived John Hinckley.

    I wish I could say that the diarist is far off.  But I can't.  A trifle hyperbolic perhaps, but perhaps understandably so.

    In any event I can't support the notion that remarking on the phenomenon, depressing as it may be, is worthy of censure by a HR.

      I too have heard similar remarks about the President. The most recent was a wistful musing that if something would just happen to Obama and Biden, we would have President Boehner, and that would be wonderful.

      I confronted him on the remark, and he said "only kidding", but he wasn't. His wish was sincere.

        This woman is one of those people who always insists she is a Democrat while parroting right-wing NRA, Focus on the Family, etc. talking points.  She "votes for the person, not the party."  

        I understand not wanting to be a Republican but don't claim you're one of us.

        I never even rooted for harm to come to W...just wanted him to go away.

        There is a deep rooted sickness out there.  And no matter how much they want to deny it a big part of it is racism.
