New York Times writer Peter Baker is puzzled as to why Republicans don’t wish Obama harm.
Recently, he wrote:
“President Obama must be touched by all the concern Republicans are showing him these days. As Congress examines security breaches at the White House, even opposition lawmakers who have spent the last six years fighting his every initiative have expressed deep worry for his security.”
“The American people want to know: Is the president safe?” Representative Darrell Issa of California, the Republican committee chairman who has made it his mission to investigate all sorts of Obama administration missteps, solemnly intoned as he opened a hearing into the lapses on Tuesday.”
“Yet it would not be all that surprising if Mr. Obama were a little wary of all the professed sympathy.”
What do you think? Are there many Republicans who wish the President physical harm? Or is this a gross exaggeration and mischaracterization?
