    ANY suggestion that Jared Loughner was a right-wing nutter, despite significant circumstantial evidence that he was/is.

    •  What will they do now, given that... (3+ / 0-)

      ...the latest attack occurred at the very place where the other side claims it wants to "trim the fat"?

      Like I said, things are going to get worse, because there are no more presidential elections for Obama to wsrry about.

    •  Laughner is a Paranoid Schizophrenic hearing (10+ / 0-)

      voices and was actually a fan of Giffords before the mental illness took over....

      His political leanings, if there were any coherent political thoughts at all, had nothing to do with the shooting....

      Laughner is a prime example of our medical system as well as Pima community college failing both Laughner and the public.

      Had he been ordered to Kino for observation and diagnosed then, the tragedy could have been avoided...It was not political or necessary.....

    •  He wasn't a right winger (6+ / 0-)

      Although "nutter" is not the best term, it comes closer than defining him by politics. He was extrememly mentally ill, and the deterioration in his condition in the days/weeks leading up to the shooting should have been obvious to many who had reason to cross paths with him. For the delusional it is not a matter of politics that they may fixate on a visible political figure. I've met too many of them who are hearing the voices of the CIA in their TV sets, instructing them to learn and reveal the truth about the Kennedy assassination. This kind of thinking does not reflect someone rationally expressing political views.
