Pierce, the president of the College Republicans at UT Austin, told ABC News the comment was a “joke” and that the “whole [shooting incident] was stupid.” Giggling, she said that an attempted assassination would “only make the situation worse.”
Yeah, granted these are college students, but clearly not very intelligent ones. If they were in middle school or high school, they’d be suspended or expelled for talking about something like that.
Do you ever wonder why a good chunk of the country has signed on to the idea that it is important that this particular president be a failure? Nobody talked that way about Clinton or Carter. Obama’s certainly not doing anything more “liberal” than they did. Why is it so important that he “go down in history as the worst president”? (Not that that is at all likely, especially as his predecessor has such a leg up on him it wouldn’t even matter what he accomplished.) D’ya think it’s because he wants to put taxpayer money into infrastructure projects? Or that he managed to pass some health reform? Hardly.
If they can just succeed in turning Obama into the country’s worst president, then all the ugly racists can feel better about their ugly insides. Imagine the “told ya so”s.
