Exactly. Love Obama or hate him, we most certainly don't need the instability that would go with an assassination. I don't think anyone would disagree with that.

Oh there certainly are people who would disagree with that -- they're just loons. :-)

I figured it was understood that the loons were excepted.

This poor couple. They've been devastated by this, apparently:

WASHINGTON – The couple that got into the White House state dinner for the visiting Indian prime minister without invitations denied Tuesday that they were gatecrashers.

Appearing on a nationally broadcast morning news show with his wife, Tareq Salahi said the furor surrounding his and his wife Michaele's attendance at the dinner a week ago has been a "most devastating" experience. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs described President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama as angered by the incident.

Salahi told NBC's "Today" show Tuesday there's more to their side of the story — an explanation that would exonerate them from allegations of misconduct. Gibbs insisted the Salahis had not been invited.

"This wasn't a misunderstanding," the spokesman said. "You don't show up at the White House as a misunderstanding."

Said Salahi: "We're greatly saddened by all the circumstances ... portraying my wife and I as party crashers. I can tell you we did not party-crash the White House."

They should write a book, give interviews and make millions on this. "Most devastating"? For a couple with enough moxie to pull this off, they sure aren't very adept at seeing the potential $ to be had. What a waste of their 15 minutes... unless this is all part of the plan. :-?

I've met some Secret Service guys and I was shocked how out of shape they were.

A buddy from college went into the Secret Service. He was definitely not out of shape, but he was a pretty odd guy. Odd but cool.

My dad knows this guy; says he's always been sort of a playboy, trying to hang out with the rich/famous.
