    That's interesting since I believe it is illegal to make a threat against the President. But asa we've seen in the last couple of weeks, Congress is above the law....... Or at least they think so!

    If one of us said that same thing, can just about guarantee a visit from the US Secret Service.

    UPDATE -
    Official Apologizes For Saying Bush Should Be Shot Between Eyes
    http://www.wnbc.com/politics/9306297/detail.html

    NEW YORK -- State Comptroller Alan Hevesi publicly apologized Thursday for a "beyond dumb" remark about a fellow Democrat putting "a bullet between the president's eyes."

    Hevesi called a mea culpa press conference hours after putting his foot in his mouth at the Queens College commencement.

    "I apologize to the president of the United States" and to the fellow state politician, Sen. Charles Schumer, Hevesi said. "I am not a person of violence.

    "I am apologizing as abjectly as I can. There is no excuse for it. It was beyond dumb."


    At the news conference, a contrite Hevesi repeated what he recalled saying in the speech. The comptroller said he was merely trying to convey that Schumer has strength and courage to stand up to the president on major policy issues.

    According to a videotape of the speech, Hevesi said:

    "The man who, how do I phrase this diplomatically, who will put a bullet between the president's eyes if he could get away with it. The toughest senator, the best representative. A great, great member of the Congress of the United States."

    Hevesi said he hadn't been in touch with the White House but he hoped his apology reached President Bush.

    Hevesi, a longtime professor of government and politics at Queens College before becoming comptroller, also referred to his comments as "remarkably stupid" and "incredibly moronic."

    "I do speak extemporaneously," he said. "And I've never said anything like this."

    Schumer spokeswoman Risa Heller said the senator was satisfied with Hevesi's apology.

    "Comptroller Hevesi was trying to make a point," Heller said. "He went way too far, and it was inappropriate and wrong. He has apologized to both the senator and the president, and we believe that ends the matter."

    A White House spokesman did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment Thursday. But at least one Republican seized on Hevesi's words.

    "Threats against the president are no joke, and this incident raises real concerns about Alan Hevesi's fitness to hold public office," GOP Comptroller nominee J. Christopher Callaghan said during his acceptance speech at the Republican state convention in Hempstead, N.Y.

    Sounded far from that to me. But, apparently all is forgiven. That would earn any of us a file with the SS, wouldn't it?

    Amazing how ultra liberal left wing a-wholes can see a real use for guns and bullets when they want to go gunning for our prez.

    I say lock him up in a lolly pop factory for a few months of psychological evaluation. Screw his fake apology.

    I thinks it's pretty prevalent. There's a story right now about two pit bulls that were found shot 37 times in the woods down on Cape Cod. There's discussions about it going on in a thread on a mountain bike board I frequent. One of the confirmed, left-wing lunies on there yesterday made the statement that he had no problem with pitbulls being shot -- he'd have a problem if they were golden retrievers. I gues guns are OK if they fit into their personal adjendas.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. The reason why the anti-rights crowd is afraid of guns is because in any given situation we would walk away from, they would pull the gun and start shooting. They would shoot people who made them mad in traffic, politicians who made them mad and dogs that scare them. They attribute this same emotional and uncontrolled response to everyone, so they believe all us legal CCW people are just as irrational as they are.
