More Post-Racial AmericaYes, the latest attack on Obama becomes personal with an ad that calls for his assassination.
As reported by Francis L. Holland, Michael Morrill and Philadelphia Enquirer The Warren Pennsylvania Times-Observer (www.timesobserver.com) published an ad on Thursday calling for the assassination of President Barack Obama.
Francis L. Holland has a link to the AD. The Warren, Pennsylvania Times-Observer has apologized, saying that the person who approved the ad "didn't recognize the significance of the names" and that they have "notified the authorities." Seriously? Garfield and McKinley...sure. But Lincoln and Kennedy? MORE HERE
Get this, as reported by the Reuters, the paper says it mistakenly ran ad urging Obama killing.
AAPP: It seems that the newspapers in the United States are comfortable with these attacks. Now the question is when will the Secret Service and the Justice Department say, enough is enough? When will they stop making it a PR Campaign for NBC?
A representative of the U.S. Secret Service was in Warren Friday, accompanied by a Warren City police officer to investigate the circumstances surrounding the placement of a classified ad in the Times Observer on Thursday. Get this, Secret Service representatives, who interviewed the ad taker and the publisher, and indicated that they would also talk to the person who placed the ad, requested that the paper not publicly reveal the name of that person because it would hamper their investigation.

Update on investigation into Obama classified
AAPP says: Why not publicly reveal the name of that person? Shouldn't the people of that city, state and country need to know the person who would like to do harm to elected officials? If it where a black man they would have released that fact in a heart beat.
Note: There have been multiple assassination attempts on Presidents of the United States; there have been 90 known attempts to kill sitting and former Presidents as well as Presidents-elect. Four attempts on sitting Presidents have succeeded: Abraham Lincoln (the 16th President), James A. Garfield (the 20th President), William McKinley (the 25th President) and John F. Kennedy (the 35th President). Two other Presidents were injured in attempted assassinations: then former President Theodore Roosevelt and then sitting President Ronald Reagan. Source
