  • I surely hope not. If he is then it only shows how racist America can be, and how afraid they are.
  • My husband I were just talking about this yesterday. We both felt that he would be assassinated, though not necessarily before going into office. My husband thinks he will be assassinated by some racist redneck. I think, if it happens, it will be orchestrated by the Clintons. Something like that wouldn't be too far past what they've done already.
  • I doubt it. Maybe after.
  • i think that's kind of a pessimistic thing for your dad to say. i hope not, because honestly america would really be down the drain if people are that sick in the head. i doubt it would happen but more than anything i hope not
  • Does your father plan to kill him?
  • I hope not ..But I heard lot ppl been saying and asking about it ..Do you think they will let a black man become their president?? doubt it!!!
  • No, and your father is being a conspiracy theorist before the fact. It's one thing to start in with Conspiracy Theories after the fact, but there is no need to start sounding paranoid before the fact.
  • I pray it does this does not happen. I do not want Obama to be President but to put it in perspective, if I had a choice of seeing him assassinated or serving two full terms, I would chose the latter in a second.
  • I would think they would wait until he is the president, before shooting him. He has a 50/50 chance.
  • They will rig it, would never let a blackman become president, and i think Obama should know that by now.He's wasting his time doing what he's doing. the whiteman will never let a blackman rule over them, and he's also from a partial Muslim background.
  • I think it would be highly unlikely ,or almost impossible.Candidates are well protected,and he is liked by most of the nation.I could not see a motive for that to happen.
  • As I recall, presidential candidates have been protected by the Secret Service since the assassination of RFK 40 years ago. I think the chances of Obama being assassinated are a lot less than they were then so I doubt that will happen. Otherwise, I sure hope it doesn't.
  • Sadly, he may be right. My father feels the same way. It just indicates what a narow-minded world we live in. MLK Jr. was assasinated even though he made great strides for African-American/Black American rights, Obama may end up with the same history. I hope not, the US doesn't need another president to be assasinated.
  • Sounds like the same kind of person who are saying "America ain't ready for no nigger president". No joke, I've actually heard that said, the country can be disgusting sometimes. I doubt he'll be assasinated, but it's a possibility. People are pretty careful after that whole JFK thing ya know ;).
  • Sadly,yes their will most likely be an attempt if he gains office because some people have the delusion of being superior to other people and races.Hopefully,he won't be althought I can almost guarantee their will be an attempt on his life but with all the security presidents have, it probably won't be a sucessful attempt.Either way,if hiliary or Obama were to be elected this scenairo would probably happen because of raciest America.
  • from an outsiders point of view I would say he has a very good chance of someone trying to kill him after he is president about 70/30 but he also has a good chance of being killed if(when) he beats clinton 60/40... I wouldn't like to be in his shoes
  • Everyone sees it coming, but now it wont happen because there is so much talk about it. So now we'll never know. UGH *headache*
  • Unfortunately I too am concerned about the safety of Obama and his family since we have a lot of whack-o racist in the USA. I think it's interesting though that everyone seems to ignore, or forget, the fact that Obama's mother is White. So considering that do you think he hates White people or will be partial to Black people? Well if he is partial than realize that American society pushed him to be partial through the same mentality that still exists and calls him a Black man although he genetically is only 50% Black. This is a label system that goes back to slavery days when anyone with even a little Black blood in them was considered Black. In my opinion this is because Caucasian people did not want to use the term Non-White for reasons. Obama is a multi-racial as myself but neither of my parents is 100% White. I do not look Black but I am part Black and I grew up with Black people in 50's and 60's inner city Chicago. I suffered a little because of this but it made me stronger and I understood why it was happening. I am intelligent and educated like Obama, but not as much as he. Even though I grew up with Black influences and understanding I never allowed myself to harbor severe resentment or hatred towards White people because I realized I was part White and therefore harboring negative feelings about White people meant doing the same to part of my own heritage. So I encourage you to open your mind and believe Obama could possibly really be what our country needs right now. And as far as the Muslim background thing: he is a Christian and a member of a Christian church in Chicago for many years. There are a lot of other devoted Muslims in the US and maybe we need to worry more about some of them. I attend a big church in a small California town and there's a Muslim meeting place down the street that was a lot more packed Sunday than my church was.
  • No. I believe if Obama appointed Hillary as VP she would have him assainated to take the presidential seat.
  • I know I'll get down rated for this answer but, I too think that he'll be assassinated if he's elected. I just hope he doesn't get elected. That said, if you care about Obama, don't vote for him as you will be signing his potential death warrant.
  • Oh sweet. a "Let's not vote for the black guy because he might get hurt" campaign. That goes with the "Gosh, his name is Hussein. Was he in Iraq" campaign. You have an imbecile in the White House now. Soon you will (I hope) not.
  • He probably will and not by Hillary or any of the Clintons (dumb ass remarks!). He is a Muslim, he probably will be assassinated by his own kind!!!!
  • pray to whomever your father is wrong.
  • Well, he is a lot like Kennedy and we all know what happened to him. I hope it's not true though.
  • I think he'll get his feet in the door and stretch a little before it's taken to that extreme but I don't think your father's completely wrong in his presumption.
  • I don't think Obama will be elected to the office of President of the U.S.A.
  • I don't support his views, nor will I likely vote for him. However, I wish him a long, healthy life.
  • As an outsider I believe it is quite possible, there are too many fronts. The white supremacists, the black supremacist groups, the Muslims, all those who without being part of a racial group will not allow a black man to be president of the United States, the wackos, loonies, hate groups and so many more. Chances are quite high. I have not forgotten his mother is a white woman, but as far as I understand to determine if a person is black a single drop of black blood in his vains makes him a black man. I have seen this in Cable TV and have read about it in Internet. Not that I believe that black people have black blood, no I know better. Remember that singer who's grandma was black but she was white? When her husband wanted the divorce because their child was born black, she was determined a black woman because according to the judge "if she had a drop of black blood then she was black". Unfortunately true.
  • We can only hope.
  • I hear a lot of crazy talk on this Q&A, but weather you agree with his politics or not he has more courage then a lot of the people who hide behind a keyboard and hurl insults. At least he is doing more then giving lip service to try too make this country a better place.
  • the KKK does still exist, so that can play a factor
  • If he goes in with a huge agenda like the Kennedys the possibilities exist.
  • Well if not before, definitely after. We are a white America. Whether you like it or not and agree with me or not. It's called the White House for a reason.
  • I think your father is right! If he does get to select a VP he should pick Hillary so when it happens she will be president by default! If it happens it will probably be by a jewish extremist and they will make it appear as if it was a redneck!
  • Unfortunately your father is probably right. Obama or anyone is likely be assassinated before they could do permanent damage to the military-industrial-zionist interests who have been in power for the past 40 years or so in the USA. Anyone who thinks that building 7 collapsed by itself or that the twin tower bombing scenario exercises preventing interception were a coincidence, or that Robert Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman instead of to prevent the possibility of avenging his brother's death, or that Marin Luther King died because of another looneyman - i.e. 99% of the USA population that are being lead around by their noses - get ready for another "tragic coincidence". I wonder if Obama understands what he is up against.
  • If he takes McCain up on his offer to go to Iraq with him, I have a sneaking suspicion that he will.
  • Anything can happen,he is kind of rude not in a good way.
  • I have heard this from other people. I belong to a voters organization in my county and the president of this organization says pretty much the same thing.
  • He won't. America is not a racist coutry like most Liberals and him make it look. His wife though is a racist, she learned everything her preacher thought her
  • I think there isn't much chance while he stays out of the south.
  • I hope your dad is right.
  • We've been discussing that for ages - he is too far outside the establishment and yes we think somebody will try and 'do a Kennedy' on him. All presidents need excellent security, but his are going to need eyes in the backs of their heads, I suspect.
  • i am a black man and history shows that all of our most prominent black leaders have been assasinated. i pray that we have come further than that as a people when it comes to race. i live in louisiana and i gaurantee it got some racist a-holes out here. if he gets killed the future of this country will be on the verge of a new era of racism.
  • The sad thing is, even though Obama does deserve to be president (in my humble opinion of course), there are still many people who are against a black man being president. It's incredibly sad that our society has evolved so much and yet we still have this terrible prejudice that is in fact quite silly and ridiculous. But the truth is, if Obama is elected president, the security will have to be extremely tight. He has already had threats on his life and the election hasn't even passed. There's also the problem of the KKK. It's quite pitiful that some people believe that a good man can not be president because of his skin color. It's absurd.
  • everyone had been saying that, its so annoying. Do i do not think he will be assasinated, he has too much security for something like that to happen. And when or if he gets in office it'll be even less likely that something like that will happen due to the secret service protecting him, i would prefer the secret service to protect both candidates during the race, anything can happen.
  • I think unless your dad has insight into some plans, he shouldn't say negative things like that.
  • I will not be surprised if there is an attempt and it will most likely be some idiotic racist who can't stomach having a black man for a president.
  • Probably not because everybody loves him. I dont want him assasinated and i dont want him in office either.
  • I pray that doesn't happen. Aside from the fact that I just wouldn't want that in any case, there is the great possibility that, if it did happen, Biden would last about an hour as president and have another aneurysm and drop dead. That would leave us with Polosi. God, please save us from that catastrophe. Hey, maybe that's why he chose Biden in the first place...insurance.
  • What are your father's plans?
  • Obama has had the secret service on him since 2007. Almost two years ago. The odds of this happening are slim to none given his security. Chances are no-one will be close enough to see/touch him in the next 4 years, did you notice the huge bullet proof glass surrounding him when he gave his president-elect speech? he is a guarded man and will remain as such. It would take an inside job to have this happen.
  • I would set tight surveillance on your father.
  • Any president has the possibility of assassination. There have been several attempts, some successful, on presidents in the past. Hopefully it won't happen.
  • I think is security is pretty tight so i think your father is wrong. On a personal note I hope he is wrong it would be very bad for our country. Having said that I sure like to see him lose the next election
  • i think it is a stupid question. you should respect your father and not list his questions on this website. this information is all available on google dotcom. you are saying it too. such crap.
  • People. Read what Cowboy said before I made my comment. My comment was in response to that. I respect everyones views and I was voicing my opinion on what Cowboy said.
  • well aparently he was wrong : ]
  • just because he is half black, half muslim does not mean he will be assasinated. it's sad to think that racism still exists after all these years.
  • I think people should focus on what they want, not what they fear.
  • i know a lot of people that hink that. i think he'll be okay, at least i hope so.
  • No I dont think so but ive heard it a lot. That would be insane.
  • No, he wont be.
  • I hope not. There will be blood in the streets if that happens. If he is going to succeed or fail- let it be by his own actions.
  • hes fine
  • Not before no.
  • I think he is now officially wrong. Somehow, despite shoes being allowed at the inauguration, Obama wasn't assassinated.
  • Probably. I think he is the strongest candidate to be assasinated since Kennedy. So, thats why I don't necessarily think that if it happens it would be on the grounds of 'race'. I know this question is out of date and he is already in the White House, but you have to consider if ANY president of any country leads their country to war (North Korea?) and they make a mess of it and it affects their people...it surely increases the chances.
  • ive heard the same if it had been Hilary....all people can cry is "racist" ..because of color....they are as "petty " and "unfair" and "no common sense " as the ASSASSINATOR.......i thought the same....if not before......some idiot is gonna "have enough " sooner or later.....2 wrongs don't make a RIGHT..:)justme
  • So far that hasn't been a problem. But then, look at who would take over if he were! President 'foot in mouth' Biden, anyone? How about Prez Pelosi? AAAAAUGH!!!!!!!
  • nope, quite sure he made it. But he can still go JFK-style
  • I hope not, but I do feel that one of these white patriot militia klan member freaks will certainly give it a try! Maybe then the government will finally accord these right-wing terrorist groups the treatment they deserve: carpet bombing.
  • I think he's be assassinated while in office...
