  •  The problem is that they've planted these seeds (0+ / 0-)

    for the last 2.5 years and the nutjobs carrying out these acts is only the beginning of the seeds blooming.

    There's a lot more to come. All of the fear techniques that we have seen the GOPosaurs use will stoke more violence against liberals, Blacks, LGBT, Hispanics, and even Women.

    Notice that Republicans have denounced the act, but not the (very thinly veiled) threats.  Putting stuff on hold is more about GOPosaurs keeping their powder dry so that they can demonize and stoke more hatred by using the HCR repeal vote than it is out of any sense of respect or decency.

    We will soon go back to "2nd Amendment Remedies" and similar talk as the 2012 Prez election gets underway.

    Unfortunately, the GOPosaurs have learned that the rhetoric works and energizes their base so that they will not be willing to give that up. Lee Atwater may be dead, but his use of hatred for political gain is thriving.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
