Default BANG!!! oh bugger

and so now that the good news has come, the first murmurs of worst case scenarios are already rising. (honeymoons are so brief these days).

for all the reassurance given to the world by, and praise offered to america for, its agreeable choice of 'president elect', many are indulging in crystal ball gazing.

despite the high turn out of voters and the vast majority supporting Obama, it does of course require just one nutter with a sniper rifle to fuck things up! and it is certain that there is more than just one nutter in the US of A.

and so....Obama suffers a fatal assassination attempt.

what happens next?

no he hasn't. not yet anyway. there's already been plots uncovered & people arrested for previous attempts that were in the works, but no one has managed to pull them off yet. no one has even gotten close.

so i don't understand your post...? are you saying "what if?"

he is definitely the most threatened president, but will also be the most protected one because of it.

I think what Paolo is saying is that there are going to attempts on Obama's life and that this is just the beginning. Sadly I have to agree with him. There is so much hate in this country, based on ideology, religious beliefs, and not the least on race, that there are going to be plenty of people who will believe that assassinating Obama is the only way to "save" America. Of course they do this by abandoning all the principals and beliefs that made this country what it is. They only believe in them if it suits thier beliefs at whatever time it is. Hopefully the Secret Service is up to the task and no one is successful in their attempts. I see the first 6 months as the most vunerable time, after that I think they will know how they have to protect this president. The likelyhood of a succesful attempt goes down drastically after that point.

Joe Biden steps up to save the world??? The whitehouse clones all its presidents since Kennedy???

There isn't an easy answer, would it immediately spark riots across the US? I kind of it would if you look at history. One thing that wouldn't change is that the country voted in the first black president, regardless of how long he serves that in itself is a step forward. Tragedy yes, but no matter the outcome, Obama has opened doors that have never been opened until now.

I would imagine the secret service will be on its A-game, but I know I'd be calling Tim McCarthy out of retirement

These Idiots should not be given any press, not do they deserve any..skinkheads, KKK members whatever.
The publicity only serves too motivate copy cat wankers.

The Secret service is up to the task as it protected Shrub for 8 years as was mentioned earlier.

i never heard of any Bush assassination efforts tho.

mind you, i have neverheard of any Obama assassination efforts neither.

for sure the 'media' report that Obama has had 'presidential level' protection since 2 'attempts'.... but these attempts were little more than 2 incidents of rascist pindicks getting arrested, who then (inexplicably) admitted to an inclination to shooting Obama.

to me, this is far from an attempt... hell theyhadn't even initiated a plan, but one lot had been picked up for motoring offences and the other pair for shooting at a church!

attempted assassination!!!? buh!?

FOX news and others have a tendency to sentationalize things like this so they can perpetuate the Fear and consumption model. This is what they do the best. FEAR=CONSUMPTION.

What did Shrub tell us all to do after 911?? Go shopping and take the Kids to disneyworld.
