Can anyone explain why there has been a 400 percent increase in threats against our president?

"Secret Service Secrets: Obama Threats Up 400 Percent
A new book by Newsmax Chief Washington Correspondent Ronald Kessler features startling revelations about current and former U.S. presidents, including Barack Obama.

'In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect,' released Tuesday, discloses that threats against the president have increased dramatically — by a staggering 400 percent since Obama entered the White House.

Kessler is the first journalist to penetrate the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service, and his book is based on interviews with more than 100 current and former agents.

Once Obama entered the White House, the Secret Service experienced a 400 percent increase in the number of threats against the president, in comparison with his predecessor George Bush. While most of the threats were not credible, each had to be checked out and adjudicated."

    It's nothing more than the typical manufactured hype of the 0bama administration. Just like when he sent out the union thugs From the SEIU to manufacture support for his failure of a HC bill

    He sees his approval ratings going into the sh!tter so he is trying to create sympathy with this BOGUS threat BS...

    This type of behavior is becoming so predictable from the moonbats. The Dems are about to suffer the biggest defeat in the 2010 elections and they know it. Why do you think Reid and Pelosi and the rest of the gang are attacking taxpaying citizens with their manufactured hate (your Nazi's and it's all Astro Turf) Bawhahahaha

    This whole thing is nothing more than:

    gang attacking taxpaying citizens manufactured hate nazis astro turf bawhahahaha

    Claims of a huge increase in threats against BHO is an attempt to distract people from the really bad job he and his radical friends are doing trying to run our country (unless their goal is to run it into the ground, in which case they are doing as great job).

    Why is there no coverage of the huge increase in the number and vicousness of threats against anyone who dares challenge Obama's agenda?

    Perhaps the threats have nothing to do with race, maybe people feel Obama is destroying our country, and instead of working thru the proper channels resort to extremes. What about this article points to racism? Were the people that hated Bush and wanted him dead racist against whites? Or according to you, maybe they just hated Texans.

    Yes, Healthcare REFORM is needed. NOT Free Obamacare nor the Public Option.!!
    It certainly does have something to do with greed....Greed of the lawyers, greed of the drug companies, and greedy politicians.
    No government controlled healthcare !!! I can take care of myself. Reform what we now have by regulating the GREEDY!

    I don't think anyone should threaten anyone unless they are about to lose their freedom or have their property stolen.

    Sure sounds like the government, heh now.

    The world is coming to an end in 2012 so don't worry about a thang.
    freedom property stolen sounds government heh world 2012 worry thang

    Does that mean there are 4 now or 400? Up 400% doesn't really give one an idea of how many there are!
    Could it be used as a sympathy number?

    It could be 400% of 200 = 800 Or 400% of 20,000 = 80,000. Who knows, I guess it sounds important to Sir Gibbs.

    During the Bush years, if you went to any protest, you'd see 400 death threats in one day.

    This figure has already been disproved.

    And I thought this president was going to transcend race and heal the racial wounds of this country............that is what Michelle said on the stump. Seems that all the careless charges of racism have just increased racial tension, which is higher than it has been since the civil rights laws were passed.

    he has done nothing to heal the divide between the races if anything he has iritated it more with his openly courting the muslims and turning his back on our long time friends the isrealis,he has also tried to court terrorist groups with peace dialogue rather than hard sanctions that they deserve.
    he has appointed czar after czar rather than have a cabinet and staff like a normal president. these czars have all th power of the office and answer to no other agency

    He has increased the racial tension in this country by using racism to
    his advantage. Then there are all the 0baminations accusing everyone who disagree with 0bama as being a racist. A man who was to transcend race and heal the racial wounds in this country has done nothing to achieve that and instead has increased them. The Gates incident is a great example of Gates/0bama using racism. That one blew up in their face.........trying to make a teaching moment out of
    racial profiling when there was no racial profiling. gates incident gates0bama racism blew teaching racial profiling racial profiling

    Now I ask you, who is the respectful one showing dignity.
