Plot to Assassinate Obama?

After they arrested a hunter, color me skeptical on this story:

One of the suspects told authorities they were “going to shoot Obama from a high vantage point using a … rifle … sighted at 750 yards,” according to the KUSA report.

The station said police found two high-powered, scoped rifles in the car along with camouflage clothing, walkie-talkies, a bulletproof vest, a spotting scope, licenses in the names of other people and methamphetamines.

A public affairs official with the attorney’s office in Denver said they would provide no other information on the news conference.

Great, just what we need.  I hope this turns out to be hype.  There are a lot of whack jobs out there still who are probably losing their shit over the idea of a black man being president.  If there is indeed a plot, good work on the part of the Secret Service for busting it up before they could carry it out.

    SS already said this was not a ‘credible threat’.

    C’mon, what assassin walks around with his rifle in a case looking like a rifle in a case???

  3. DJK says:

    and….Camouflage clothing?? For what? to blend into the hotel room>??? No, he was going on a hunting trip.

    The Dems probably planted the guy for a story…. They know he won’t get any time anyway…

    SayUncle – What does the Schutzstaffel have to do with this?? I thought they were long gone.

    ABC News Radio reports the “high powered scoped rifle sighted in at 750 yds” was .22

    I’m a lot more alarmed by the prospect of a communist president than a black president. I can think of a lot more black people than communists that I like.

    What I don’t get is how someone with no more planning than a desire to impress Jodie Foster could get close enough to shoot Reagan but people who decide to go hunting within 10 miles of the messiah are thrown in jail. Does not compute.

  7. DJK says:

    I’m with you Jim… this is just more liberal PSH.

  8. I would be very interested indeed to know whether the Secret Service investigation started with an anonymous tip.

  9. K-Romulus says:

    News reports are a .270 and a “sniper scoped” Ruger 10-22. Good luck with that 750yd shot, “warriors.”

  10. AntiCitizenOne says:

    how exactly did they know it would be 750 yards…unless that was some serious planning…

  11. I’d like to see the meth-head who could make a precision shot at 750 yards–hell, I’d like to see the would-be assassin who could get a rifle within 750 yards of Obama.

    Jimmy Carter’s “deranged swamp rabbit” was a bigger threat than these idiots.

    From this CBS4 Denver story I read, the Secret Service had no part in uncovering this “plot”. It was the result of what started as a routine motor vehicle stop by an Aurora, Colorado, patrol officer.
