Re: NYT: Say, Why Don’t Republicans Want President Obama to be Killed?

That’s not the only ridiculous element of that Times story, Charlie. Tom Maguire makes another good point about it.

And I’ll make another point. The story quotes Democratic think tanker Matt Bennett, who suggests that Republicans are holding hearings about Secret Service incompetence to undermine the administration in advance of the election. Anyone want to guess what the Democratic spin would be if Republicans hadn’t held such hearings after the last week’s news?
