Presidential power has always been controversial. Congress and the Judiciary have clashed with both Bush and Clinton administrations over matters of executive privilege, impeachment, and the war on terror. Almost all modern presidents have moved to expand their power.
Other Countries Threats to Bush made in other countries are obviously not germane to this essay, since the Secret Service has no jurisdiction outside the United States.
You may want to turn off your computer volume before clicking on the first three links below, as the pages have annoying embedded music. Michelle Malkin has a roundup of a few uninvestigated threatening images about Bush. Gateway Pundit has the story of a video made by a child threatening to kill Bush; it was removed from YouTube, but still can be seen here.
To follow the complicated argument: Also see my previous essay about the ubiquitous comparisons between Bush and Hitler: Bush as Hitler, Swastika-Mania: A Retrospective Counter-Examples There are two different kinds of possible counter-examples which would incrementally weaken my two-pronged contention that a Protesters threatening Obama are almost always detained or questioned by the police or Secret Service or at least are widely publicized by the mediaand b Protesters threatening Bush almost always got off scot-free, with no investigation and no media outrage.
The first type of counter-example would need to show protesters whose threats to Obama were ignored; and the second type of counter-example would need to show protesters who actually were arrested for threatening Bush.
Threats to Obama at Protests that Seem to Have Gone Uninvestigated Obama supporters originally claimed that only Obama gets threatened at protests, and no previous president ever experienced this level of hostility.
However, this essay has proven otherwise. In fact, the opposite of their claim is true: It is Bush who got threatened frequently at protests, whereas Obama not nearly so much.
Furthermore, just about every overt threat to Obama by protesters seems to be properly followed up by the authorities. Still, to be as even-handed as possible, I present this section to document threats to Obama at protests which were never investigated by the Secret Service and which were ignored by the media as were all the threats to Bush documented above.
If you are an Obama supporter who knows of any other examples of death threats to Obama at protests which were ignored, then please post them in the comments section below and I will add them here if they qualify.
This is the one example I could find of what seems to be an actual threat toward Obama which went uninvestigatd by the Secret Service and ignored by the media. Look at the sign carefully to see how, if you really concentrate, it could sort of be construed as a death threat to Obama.
But aside from those two signs, I have not been able to find any more solid examples. Readers are encouraged to post links to any additional examples in the comments section.
A few of the stronger examples: Why am I mentioning this?
Does this count as a threat, equivalent to the threats depicted at the top of this report? Anyway, Obama was not the president nor even the Democratic nominee for president yet, just one of many hopefuls hoping to run for the Democratic Party nomination.
Threats by protesters against Bush which were investigated by the Secret Service. As with the other type of counter-examples, there seem to have been very very few if any examples of this, but the closest one I could find is presented here: The charges were later dropped anyway.
So even if they were removed from the event unfairly, this was not about a death threat, but rather about campaign managers not wanting any protesters in a photo op, as the article mentions. So — do the counter-examples listed above damage to any significant extent my contention that Obama threats are being pursued more vigorously in general than were Bush threats?

None of these guys were ever prosecuted. None of these magazines — people made films, there was an award-winning film made about the assassination of the president.

Urban Infidel has a couple of photo essays from various places around NYC: Well, the problem is the non hyper partisans remember the deference shown bush until he evaded Iraq.
After all but the hyper moon bats got behind bush. The rage and fury directed at Obama just seven months in rings hollow to moderates and independents. But it is intellectually dishonest on several levels to compare the two situations.
Right now articles like this, and the general hostility emanating from the right will repel the very voters we need to retake the house. Despite moderates and independents having policy issue with the Dems and Obama they will never vote the extremist into power.
Zombie has once again done a service for all who think critically by pointing up the hypocrisy of the left in an objective, thoughtful and logically unchallengeable manner.
