Are you really that sure?

What are we talking about here?

How many of the posters in this forum would change their vote if someone was believed to be targeting McCain.

All this election is coming down to is a very small number of voters, 2, 3 maybe 4 %.



Many of these undecideds could just think why elect Obama when there are so many crazies out there.
The country could not survive the first Black President being assassinated.
It is too risky, he has two young daughters, why risk it?

Perhaps you would like to give your thoughts on the situation?


Are Keith Oberman, Chris Matthews and the rest of the media is some conspiracy to kill this story so Obama does not get a bounce in the polls?

Nice poem, but it doesn't work that way. There are many voters who are hesitant to support Obama because of assassination fears. There have been forums on the topic.

But the story has been played down for security reasons, not political ones.

Link posted by BVS is from a UK newspaper (which I would consider reliable).

Are the US media not reporting this, perhaps to avoid any possibility of a copycat attempt?
Yes, they are. In the form of broadcasting.
