    But I understand your sentiment.  I think things are gonna get very ugly for the next few years.

    •  There was a serious difference (3+ / 0-)

      in violent rhetoric after Obama got elected the first time, so that a visiting expat asked me if it really was  as ugly as he thought (and he is pretty conservative).  When I tied it to Obama, and to racism, he thought about it and decided it made sense.

      It's sad that this may become physical violence is terrible, but not unthinkable.  What does that say about us?

      But let's be careful before assigning motives when we don't know the facts.  I remember after the Giffords shooting how so many of us thought it was political - after all, it had been political during the healthcare debate.  And for all Loughner's latching on to some political rhetoric, he was essentially a crazy kid with a gun.  (I have a crazy son of my own, and believe me, I know the difference.)

      Nice to see you, EV.

        And I get your point.  I know I am speculating some here.  We'll see where this goes, but for no good reason, I think this one is gonna be a right wing nut job of some sort.  I don't have any evidence to justify it, that's why I put so.many disclaimers in the diary.

        Nice meeting you the other night as well.

        Best,
        EV
