    I dont even know what to say... Ive tried several times and i wind up making myself upset. All i can say is this, if mccain doesnt want this resting on his shoulders because its nut jobs like those people that make up the republican party, then he should immediately hold a press confference telling people that he doesnt need or want those kinds of people voting for him.

    oh, this is from wikipedia.
    "Naming rights controversy

    Many fans opposed a corporate name and wished to retain the previous venue`s name, "Mile High Stadium." The Denver Post initially refused to use the INVESCO label and referred to it as Mile High for several years before changing their policy and adding INVESCO to articles. Post columnist Woody Paige created more controversy when he revealed that INVESCO officials referred to the stadium as "the Diaphragm," a reference to its shape resembling that of a birth-control device"

    I think people are scared of a "black" president .. I say what the hell give him a shot (not literally lol). If people hate the way the country is going right now, why pick the same type of leader like Mccain (even though I have respect for him)? Hey Morgan Freeman was a kick-ass President in Deep Impact lol. Why not hehe.

    They didn`t say anything about race. Why project that? Former assassinations were based on ideals, yet when someone who is physically different comes into play, it can only be about ethnicity. Sure, it`s a possibility, but not the only one, and I personally think that the more assumptions are made, the more fingers will be pointed. It`s just silly. I absolutely agree with Maddog, though.

    Not long ago a guy was found dead in his Denver hotel room from cyanide poisoning. He had nearly a pound of the stuff in his possession.

    Police are out in areas equipped for riots and there`s helicopters flying around with men mounted on the sides.

    I plan on going downtown to see some hippies catch tear gas later today.

    Colorado`s gonna be awesome this week.

    seriously, why the hell has no-one done this to Bush. He is a moronic hateful waste of air. The only good thing about your ridiculous gun laws (or complete lack of them) is that it is easy to murder moronic, mass-murdering war mongers.

    Mouichi - I have heard they were white supremacists so I think this is to do with race although seeing as my news source was perez hilton I wouldn`t take it as gospel. :D

    kikij, it`s not so much that this might`ve been about race, it`s just that people jumped to the conclusion that it automatically was.

    Also, if I remember correctly, there was an attempted assassination of Bush, but it was pretty early in his presidency, so the media was leaning more towards the war coverage.

    Some people say that the vice-presidents this year might be more important than the actual candidates. There is still a huge amount of racism in the US and Obama may very well get hurt on the job, and McCain is just so bloody old he might die of the stress.

    1. Didn`t click on link, but based on other post it looks like everyone is assuming that it is racist. I still dont see how Obama is black, he is Beige.

    2. "Damn", you people are taking that word out of context. I believe you people are using the "Damn, he should`ve killed him" when it seems pretty clear that it is "Damn, poo, Thats WhacK"

    I can see where people are getting it due to the second sentence after the word damn. "Assasination attempt foiled" The second sentence acknowledges the first... or so it seems.
    Whatever McCain and Obama are pretty much the same to me

    And Bush did have an assassination attempt, but it was earlier, not to mention there are probably others that aren`t mentioned.

    Let me start by saying I would LOVE to see a president that is something other than a white male...however I do NOT want to see Obama in office. ever. If the Dems. would open up there eyes they would see that this man is a socialist. He is quoted saying he would re-distribute the wealth in this country...how you ask? By taxing the hell out of people that work hard just to give money to those that do not. he`s against guns...Australia tried taking away peoples guns once...violent crime went up 400% IN A WEEK. use you head when you go to vote, don`t vote in someone that is going to bring down our economy just because you think it would be nice to have a black president. Obama will ruin everything all of you have worked for and some of you are even willing to thank him for it. If you want to live like that move to a country where freedom is not an option. And yes I know my spelling sucks, I`m dyslexic. Now, on with the hate mail I know I`ll get for this. p.s obama`s middle names hussein

    personaly what i have notice is that he does not seem to be american at all and he needs to go back to where he came from. not that anyone needs to kill him but get him out of our country. he should have knew before he even started to run that he would be a large taget with his name alone many people are very leary. so he should learn his place and thats not at the whitehouse!!!!!

    I am afraid every day that Obama might get hurt in his run for the presidency. All Americans should be. Anyone who would make light of the possibility should ask their parents what the 60`s were like (JFK, MLK, RFK, among many). Or just look back to what happened in Pakistan late last year, and the ramifications that still echo in that so-called "ally on the war on terrorism" today.

    The very prospect of assassination of our leaders, whether you agree with them or not, should make a true American`s blood run cold. For too many of you it`s just a joke.

    Shame on IAB for allowing such a horrible title for this link.

    I know that some here are giving IAB the benefit of the doubt by suggesting they meant, "Holy $h!t! Someone was plotting to kill Obama!!!". But what I read was: "Damn! Plot to Assassinate Obama Foiled". Wait... that`s what the title was.

    There is a difference. So shame on IAB, shame on anyone who doesn`t shame IAB, and shame on anyone who

    ...doesn`t shame IAB all day long.

    Assassination is serious. Forget whether or not you support Obama. Do you really think a couple of nut-jobs with guns should be able to rule over American politics?

    Damn? As in, Gosh I wish it had happened? What?!?!

    And people are saying things like, why doesn`t someone do Bush?

    I have to say that I am disgusted. I don`t want to be associated the kind of people that would advocate violence as a means of political expression. Or even the kind of people who would think that it`s ok to joke about it.

    Iwon`t be back - so, to the sane people here... thank you, and good-bye. To the growing numbers of idiots, good ridance.

    Oh this is absolutely awful. I don`t care how bad the person is, murdering political leaders is horrible. I hope those pieces of poo get life in prison.
