The cult of Obama apparently doesn’t extend to everyone. Four idiots are being held on suspicion of plotting to kill our next President. The story itself is highly suspect. The parts don’t add up.
Law enforcement sources told Maass that one of the suspects “was directly asked if they had come to Denver to kill Obama. He responded in the affirmative.” The story began emerging Sunday morning when Aurora police arrested Tharin Gartrell, 28. He was driving a rented pickup truck in an erratic manner, according to sources. Sources told CBS4 police found two high-powered, scoped rifles in the car along with camouflage clothing, walkie-talkies, wigs, a bulletproof vest, a spotting scope, licenses in the names of other people and 44 grams of methamphetamine. One of the rifles is listed as stolen from Kansas.
A 750-yard shot from a high vantage point is very difficult on a human sized target, even with an high caliber rifle and an appropriate scope. You’d need to pre-sight your weapon from your actual vantage point, or have a spotter assisting you. Maybe both.
The last person who could make such a shot is a methhead. Look carefully at these two individuals. They are supposedly charter members of the Methhead Presidential Assassin’s Club. These doofuses don’t look competent enough to tie their own shoes, let alone carry out the type of plan that would end the life of Barack Obama from 750-yards away.
I think there are two possibilities.
A) These idiots were actually plotting to kill Obama. If so, they had a snowball’s chance in hell. I’d put 200,000 to 1 odds on failure.
B) This is just some sort of publicity stunt set up by the campaign to help further the cult of personality Obama seems to have become.
Either way, Obama was never in danger. He’ll be the next President and I’ll be irritated by most of what he says and does for the next four years. Remember kids, drugs and hitmen don’t really mix. Competent assassins don’t get high and drive around in pickup trucks with their weapons waiting to be arrested.
This whole story is just a plot to distract us from the fact that Obama’s only meaningful contribution to society is that he promises to take money away from some people, take a cut, and give the remainder to other people – all in the name of fairness.
