    So, what will you do if Obama is re-elected? You might want to admit such a possibility considering your extreme partisan remarks this campaign season, but the want things look there is a 50-50 chance of that happening. Obama had a better chance if you just look at Ohio and Pennslyvania.

    I'm sure you'd like to do more than just take a swing at him. It is truly amazing how the vitrole that has developed since Obama has been elected has been an essential part of the conservative strategy to get a Republican back in the White House. The only thing possible is a overwhelming desire by the conservative power elite to get back to the Bush policies that place them on the fasttrack to plutocratic self-definition.

    A joke? You call such a comment a joke?

    This is more a conservative fantasy (albeit one far less severe that what many on the Far Right would like to do) but it is serious because it concerns the president. Such comments (much like the rifle target symbolism used just prior to the Gabby Giffords shooting) has an effect with the crazies out there.

    I'm sure his mother and father had a serious talk with him about the stupidity of saying such things. If it had been a regular, wingnut, anti-Obama nutcase saying this, I'm sure the Secret Service would have that individual in for a talk.

    You can rest assured that they take it a whole lot less seriously than you do.

    where did ferry say they where offended. I realize you get labeled victim a lot on these threads but clearly you still fail to understand what it means.

    This is all hilarious, from the story right on down the line of comments, including mine. Somebody smack me—I think I must be dreaming.

    After Nov. 6th he'll have the protection of the Secret Service for the next 4 years.

    Maybe Tag has his own battalion of lawyers now and can therefore say pretty much anything that comes into his head with impunity.

    Tag, this is no joke! You threatened the President of the United States with violence. Like his dad, Tag Romney is just another spoiled brat Chicken Hawk. The American Presidential elections have resulted in numerous disasters due to violence. Robert Kennedy and George Wallace were Presidential candidates whom were victims of assassination attempts. Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan all were victims of violence. Tag, you threatened violence against the President of the United States of America. That is no joke!

    @ azgal

    I think your comment and even your joke were right on target!

    All I think is that Tagg might like to slug Josh right about now for that very last line. LOL!!

    During the debate itself, I was wondering if the president or the president-to-be wouldn't like to just slug the other and be done with it!

    But no, such things would not be accepted nor tolerated from our leaders - and Tagg knows that. He behaved accordingly. What's wrong with saying what you felt like - an appropriate response to the question asked.

    Wow - the manufactured outrage machine really found a non-issue to scream about here, and their robots have been programmed to turn on now.

    I don't know whether rational people are yawning or laughing.

    @ Rifleman
    I'm sure you could make good money writing for the Iranian press. They would agree with you and wouldn't bother in asking for you to verify your sources.

    Give it a try, President Obama is so horrible in your view that you may be making a service to the country. May be not to our country, but to some country.

    Out with one corrupt politician, and in with another. Can't wait to see all the righties defend Romney in about a year, blaming everything on Obama, and saying Obama made it much worse than Bush, so that's why it's okay to keep blaming Obama for things that don't go right for Romney. Rifleman, save this comment for a year from now.

    There is another secret that Obama isn't telling us. His campaign is in serious trouble and he knows it. Over a year ago Democratic strategist James Carville tried to warn him. At the time he had just one word of advice for President Barack Obama: Panic.

    Those cheering for Obama now may not know it but they are aboard the Titanic, and it is going down.

    Ahh the professional victims are out in force

    Love hearing how furry is so deeply offended and oppressed when somebody dares make a comment that is mild by her own hostile standards

    "I wonder what the Secret Service thinks about these comments."

    You must not have heard. U.S. Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan is too busy worrying about charges that he lied to congress about the Colombia prostitution scandal to worry about someone's feelings regarding Obama.

    Our Federal Government is riddled with corruption, Obama has vacated the White House, and we are like a ship without a rudder. Nov. 6th just can't get here fast enough. And no, it doesn't have a happy ending for the liberals so laugh now while you still can.

    To Kent C. DeForrest 11:45 a.m. Oct. 18, 2012

    Mitt and his family think they're entitled to anything they want. They think they ar entitled to say anything they want, and have it instantly believed. They think that the mere fact they say something makes it true. They think they're entitled to have anything they want.

    If you want to see a truly "entitled" family, just look at the Romneys. And, of course, they are extremely miffed when they have to face the truth.

    This is NOT waht the country needs.

    Perhaps Tagg would should read The Guardian piece, "Mendacious Mitt." It's not the least bit funny.

    I'm sure Tagg would like to take a swing at me too, because I've called his dad a liar. Come to think of it, Tagg would probably like to smack all the fact checkers too, especially PolitiFact, who has given his dad 16, count 'em, 16 "Pants on Fire" ratings for the whoppers he's told. Are these folks so out of touch that they can't even tell when they're lying?
