Arrest people who threaten the President and then deal with them based on their position on water boarding... I for one would think it's important to get information out of them about possible coconspirators and if they think water boarding then use that.

I don't agree, but...oh, I would like to see that put into practice.

A truly fair and balanced approach. They get what they ask for.

A Republican not knowing when they're crossing the line of bad taste into areas that are illegal? Can there be any surprise this kinda' thing is coming from the party that thinks waterboarding is A-Okay?

Did he delete the particularly egregious tweets?

Looks that way. The apologies for the original threat tweet have been documented regardless. The article links to his Twitter account and the first apology tweet, so you can investigate from there. One thing you can still see, he fits the FOX/Drudge conservative propaganda loving Republican profile.

To add to this one, here's a Facebook account assassination threat by somebody else using a picture.

He won't be flying anytime soon! At least not without a cavity search first!

I hated having GWB as my President, but never once did I ever even come close to wanting or desiring his assassination .

Same here, but I was actively requesting the simultaneous impeachment of both. I wouldn't have complained if the doctor performing Bush's colonoscopy would have accidentally shoved a large sharp instrument in there or Cheney's heart doctor would have had a fatal mishap. ;)

Toss him in jail for 5 years
