    Of course JFK was hated. But do you truly believe that any other president in American History has faced the hatred and rage that Obama has had to put up with.  If you're looking for statistical verification of my point, maybe you ought to talk to the Secret Service.  The fact that JFK was killed and Obama is still alive is not a reflection of how much effort has gone into trying to assassinate our first Black President.

      ...would the Secret Service provide?

        If you're confused about whether the Secret Service could provide data on how many thwarted assassination attempts and threats have been made on various American presidents, I have an even easier measure for you to use.  Please research the number of times Jacqueline Kennedy was publicly referred to as "a monkey."

          ...I suspect it's because you keep changing the subject.  I thought we were talking about the Secret Service and threats against the president. You brought that up, and now you'd rather talk about racist epithets being used against the First Lady.
