President Obama is the most threatened American President in United States history with numerous assassination attempts.
The threats haven’t stopped at Barack; one of the most disturbing ones I remember was in 2009, when a woman who knew the Obamas’ Hawaii vacation itinerary and threatened to “blow away” the First Lady was arrested a mile from where the First Family was staying. Others have threatened the Obama girls, Sasha and Malia.
On September 5, 2013, the Daily Caller wrote:
As Congress debates whether to support President Obama’s call for a limited strike against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons, Iran is vowing to back Bashar al-Assad’s regime to the hilt and threatening to unleash terrorism should the U.S. strike.
And in an unprecedented statement, a former Iranian official has warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.
Currently and according to the AP, “President Barack Obama’s hopes for a nuclear deal with Iran now depend in part on his ability to keep a lid on both hard-liners on Capitol Hill and anxious allies abroad, including Israel, the Gulf states and even France.”
More from the AP:
Each of the wary parties is guided in some measure by domestic political interests. But they also share concerns that Obama may want a breakthrough with Iran so badly that he would be willing to accept a deal that prematurely eases economic pressure on Iran and gives the Islamic republic space to pursue a nuclear weapon.
“All of us want to see diplomacy,” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told NBC News. “But we’re also concerned about an administration that seems really ready to jump into the arms of folks and potentially deal away some of the leverage we have.”
I wonder if Republicans and Sen. Bob Corker are aware that President Barack Obama is the most threatened President in history, and recently former Iranian leaders are threatened to have his daughters raped.
According to THTBAW:
President Barack Obama is the target of more than 30 potential death threats a day and is being protected by an increasingly over-stretched Secret Service. He is the most threatened President in history.
Since the President took office in 2008, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400% cent. Some threats to the President have been publicized, including the well known alleged plot by white supremacists in Tennessee to rob a gun store, shoot 88 black people, decapitate another 14 and then assassinate the first black president in American history.
I wonder how leaders of the Republican Party would feel if rape threats made against their daughters were made? Er, wait, don’t some within the Republican Party have a woman and rape problem to begin with?
