[QUOTE]In Response to Re: FORT HOOD...... : Try as I might but I didn't find ONE post in this thread that blames Obama for the shooting. Could you be so kind as to point out the post that I obviously missed? Thanks!

Check some of the conservablogs, which clearly spawned, almost verbatim, some of the comments here.
Remember, moderation on the right is not allowed. To wit: "Did you really expect Obama to be saddened by the massacre at Fort Hood? This man is our enemy. He cares nothing for Americans let alone for the American military. This man is in solidarity with Jihad and was probably pleased to receive this news – especially while anger was revving up against Pelosi’s health care vote."

One doesn't need an IQ of 160 to see what's going on here. From the so-called "tea party" yesterday (which G. Liddy claimed a million people when in fact it was more like 8,000):
The angry folks at the protest -- which attracted several thousand conservatives -- held up signs with messages of hate: "Get the Red Out of the White House," "Waterboard Congress," "Ken-ya Trust Obama?" One called the president a "Traitor to the U.S. Constitution." Another sign showed pictures of dead bodies at the Dachau concentration camp and compared health care reform to the Holocaust. A different placard depicted Obama as Sambo. Yes, Sambo. Another read, "Obama takes his orders from the Rothchilds" -- a reference to the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory holding that one evil Jewish family has manipulated events around the globe for decades.
This is bar-none, grade-z bulls*#$, and it's getting out of control. Some here are a party to these sentiments and are thereby philosophically implicated in them. It's one thing to debate the real, reasonable issues and the solutions for them, but this other stuff is beyond the pale, embarrassing, shameful stuff.
