Reader comment on item: Predicting the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election
in response to reader comment: Secret Service could NOT confirm cries of "kill him!"

I personally had attended one of the rallies and some of my fellow dog handlers at my training club had attended the same and other rallies. I, and my fellow handlers, are all college-educated from the finest first and second-tier universities. We know exactly what we heard. Denial is ruining this country. So some crazies were instigated into these calls for Obama's death? What's new? Not all Americans are perfect, nor can they possibly be perfect. After all, we are only human beings.

The fact is that these people were clearly riled up by the speaker at the podium. These crazies were not discouraged; they were encouraged. As a graduate student of political science and Near Eastern studies, I know what I saw and heard. I don't practice denial. Instead, I believe in fixing whatever is damaged, especially when it involves protecting the very lives of my fellow American citizens. You should really start worrying about and focusing on fixing America's public health system. It's about thirty years behind the EU's. Americans are now suffering horrifically, if not dropping like flies.

The elections are now in the past. Now is the time for all Americans to unite to fix our country. We already have too many expatriates living in the EU. Why not fix the country, so that more Americans will not choose to become expatriates? We are losing our best and brightest. After all, the EU is not taking our uneducated bums and parasites.
