I've never seen House of Cards.
I do wonder, though, if, say, someone in Obama's family received a letter with an unidentified substance, was taken to the hospital as a precaution, and there was "no sign the substance was hazardous or that anyone suffered injuries," and a thread was started entitled ... "Obama Family Attacked," I bet words like "hysterical" would be thrown around about the OP, and the episode dismissed as nothing but a hoax.

That's not to say I believe sending even an innocuous substance with, what I would guess was, the intent to frighten is acceptable.  It isn't, not by any stretch of the imagination.  The fear it caused is real, and trying to instill fear in someone just because you don't agree with them is really fucking pathetic.

WTF is wrong with you ?  All I did was post a link to a breaking news story.

While the Obamas endured a moderate number of threats, someone once fired shots against the White House, the closest anything comes to this is when a woman sent ricin addressed to Obama as part of a faux plot.  Ricin isn't anthrax though, which is almost surely what this assassination attempt is meant to simulate.  A number of officials in the Bush II administration had anthrax letters sent to them, a mixture of both real, poisonous powder and hoaxes, though Bush and his immediate family were not affected.

No one was trying to make you feel bad, Cali, just because you might harbor desires to see Republicans hurt or killed.  When an armed gunman attacked Steve Scalise and others at a practice for a charity baseball game, it wasn't an attempt to personally shame YOU when news outlets reported on it.

I'd say any attack on government officials or their family is wrong, regardless of political ideology.

I was too young.  I didn't understand things like assassination attempts, bulletproof ricochets or men lusting after Jodie Foster.

I think so.  Hinckley was kinda dumb and creepy, in addition to having a screw loose.

I think pretty much everyone did.
I was just a kid, but I remember how much it upset my mother, and she was no fan of Regan, by any stretch of the imagination.
If I remember correctly, that was the first time she told me about her experience with the Kennedy assassination.
She was working for Rand McNally as a book editor, they refused to close for Kennedy's funeral, which, as I understand it, was a national day of mourning, so she led a walk-out.

I think anytime a president ( democrat or republican or whig ) is the victim of an assassination or attempt, a person feels sympathy or sorrow  and it's not toward the person as it is so much toward the position. I was a young lad when JFK was shot and I didn't really know the man but I felt a sense of hopelessness for our leadership as a nation. I remember my mother crying and my father saying oh no not that goddamned Johnson  for president ( they were both democrats too ).

If you were to try to assassinate a king, sir, the — how shall I say it? — the aura of royalty would cause you to miss. But, a president—  I mean, why not shoot a president?
