    Congressman: Safety Concern for Obama Because of Folk Around this President with Guns

    I am posting this as 'Politically Neutral', however I have concerns that these idiots (on both sides of the isle) in elected office do not understand the basic premise of what our country is founded on.

    They do not have your basic rights in mind!

    Be sure to remind them, occasionally!

    Video of this at the link (Below).

    By: Bridget Johnson


    The ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee said on CNN this morning that there’s extra concern for President Obama’s safety seeing as how he’s around people with “guns strapped on their legs.”

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) spoke with Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” about the Secret Service scandal. Cummings and Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) sent a letter to Secret Service director Mark J. Sullivan last week asking for a full accounting of the events and a history past disciplinary trouble with agents’ behavior abroad.

    “It bothers me a lot because I know that there are a lot of folks who are perhaps looking for opportunities to do harm to the president or others that the Secret Service, you know, guard,” Cummings said. “And you never know what they think that is a moment of weakness.”

    He was asked if he has more concerns for President Obama’s safety because he’s African-American.

    “First of all, let me say I have concern about all presidents and everybody that the Secret Service guards,” Cummings said. “But the fact is that African-American people have always expressed concern to me about this president. They see, Candy, folk around this president with guns strapped on their legs. And they say, you know, how can that be?”

    “And they’re just — they worry,” he added.

    The congressman said he thinks the Cartagena incident was limited to the 11 relieved from duty, “but we’ll find out.”

    Well, that soundbite was pretty worthless. Another case of the media looking for ratings via race-baiting?

    Many Senators and Representatives have ceased to be the peoples' emissary to Congress; rather, they have become Congress's messenger to the people. Note the "us/them" mentality. If they lived like most Americans instead of in a nearly gun-free swamp, perhaps their view would be different.

    I'm getting sick and tired of the Dem's, trying to paint to certain voting group of people within our Country, that the President is somehow in more danger than any other President we've had. It's bogus.... it's an "implied" race statement, and some don't even imply it, they flat say it.

    It's BS to suggest that "law abiding" citizens who own guns, are suddenly going lose all of their senses and go bezerk.
    The "crazies" and "criminals" who won't care what the law is ... are the one's to be concerned about.

    Duh !!!! When you GUARD someone you DO have weapons . . another half-baked idiot in Congress with the Brady Bunch mentality. How often do you REALLY SEE a weapon on a secrect service person . . nada . . they ALL conceal. Strapped to their legs, right, NOT !!!

    About the only reason THIS President is more vulnerable probably goes to what his values, admin policies, and associates are all about . . crap, nonsense, and the de-stabalization of the country at most all levels. Sure, some nut case might attempt to harm him, hell, any other politician for that matter, but without armed security to protect him, he would be instant fodder if that situation happened. If they are all so paranoid about guards, maybe the real issue goes to WHY are they so paranoind??

    I have never understood why someone would want to try to assassinate a President, or any politician, after all, they do a good enough job of shooting themselves in the foot . . and after both feet are done, they work toward self-assassination.

    Could someone translate that? What did they say? Rambling thoughts? Are they talking about civilians or SS? And generally speaking conservative gun owners don't fit the profile for that behavior. Oh, that's right, we can't profile.

    Well, are they talking about the SS agents or the folks in the military?

    I'm pretty certain those are the only two armed groups seen around the President (you can pick any active President here) on any consistent basis.

    The stupid in some people just makes your head hurt.

    Me too, but we'd be arguing the opposite side of the coin. Not against gun owners as a general matter, but against the notion that there is no additional danger to this president from nuts then there was to others. I think there is, I think it is considerable, and I think there are folks who should know better than to egg the hatred on who deliberately persist in doing it--even here on this board.

    IMO...........the anti-gun sentiment conjured up by the administration is building for their next term.

    Obama has a secret weapon for protection.....Biden. What person would want to see that ditz sworn in as President?

    I would hate to see Obama killed. It would make him a rallying point for the looney left, besides putting the "gaff master" in OUR Oval Office.

    To be quite frank about it...the group who has made these kind of threats have been Louis Farrakhan and that looney bunch. I don't think he has to fear law abiding gun owners.

    I'm not sure why you would assume this since you don't know which view I was referencing but we can leave it at that.

    Cummings, already anti-gun, had a nephew gunned down at ODU in Norfolk VA last year.

    As usual, anti-gunners eventually start thinking ALL guns are bad, not just the government's guns. It's idiocy overkill. I guess we now need a "SSS," AKA "Super Secret Service." They would simultaneously overwatch the SS as well as provide bodyguard "inside" and "outside" protection around the SS's middle shield. And of course they would be unarmed, and have the capability to deactivate the SS weapons with an electronic kill switch should a SS agent attempt to assassinate the POTUS.

    Even better, replace the SS firearms with Tasers and puke ray guns. In the unlikely event that there even is an assassination attempt. Everybody knows that Obama is worshiped like a God, no one would risk eternal damnation by harming him!
