Mentioned it on the radio. Nothing more than he said. Heavy insinuation it's domestic/politically related.

did he have any facts of evidence to back it up Raven, or was it all just hearsay??

Someone told me that according to some pattern of assassinated Presidents, that Bush should be next in line.

He only said what I said. Drudge wouldn't say who told him, but said those who should know (i.e., security agencies) would know what he was talking about.

Drudge has people who tell him some deeply secret stuff.

With that said, I take his info with a bit more than a grain of salt.

Rember when he had a report thet people were droping on to the roof of the Fleet Center in Bosten when the Dem. Convention was taking place. That is all was heard. Now was he lying or did the goverment cover it up???

It's officially called the 20 year curse.

Kennedy, Regan and if the curse holds true, Bush.

No, it was about dying in office: Wm. Henry Harrison (1840), Lincoln (1860), Garfield (1880), McKinley (1900), Harding (1920), Roosevelt (1940), Kennedy (1960), Reagan (1980) WOOPS!. . . .

It was supposedly a curse laid by Tecumseh, an Indian who died at the hands of troops commanded by W.H. Harrison, the first victim of the supposed curse. If it existed, it is apparently over, since Reagan was elected in a year ending in 0 and did not die in office.

You do realize that Reagan was shot in office, don't you?



Yes. See the preceding post. Nobody has ever suggested that it was a "hurt while in office" curse.

I read a short time ago that some members of the old WEATHER UNDERGROUND were recently released from prison and involved in planning/training for the protests at the Republican convention. Put them together with some foreign left wing terrorists, the anarchist nuts, and some Al Qaida funding Hmmmm, maybe a splinter group called MOVE ON ASSASINS.ORG Anyway there's alot of hatred for W unfortunately. I love the guy, GOD BLESS HIM AND KEEP HIM SAFE!!!

I could most definitely believe someone would be looking into this. The left is so vehemenently anti-Bush that they would absolutely have an anyeurism if he won the election -- which is exactly what it looks like is going to happen.

And, with the modern left, the end justifies the means, so they probably figure why NOT off him?
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 6:59:56 PM EST
Not to ignore the assasination aspect, but I'd also be concerned about the 'other' affects..

For those who can remember...the anti-gun backlash and resulting laws after JFK, RFK and King assasinations, as well as the Reagan shooting! If it were to occur, imagine the AWB law that would be passed...even if the shooter used a single-shot .22 with BB-Caps.

bbbuttt... Liberals hate guns...

Maybe a bomb, then? They seem to be good at those (just ask anyone at UW Madison during the Vietnam war)...

Your point is invalid. Sarah Brady hates guns. She also bought one for her son. They only hate guns when they are in OUR hands.

Thinking about the possibility.....and I don't know what to say. Asshats. God bless GWB and keep him safe!

The protection that exists around President Bush is the best in the world. Each time I have seen Bush, I have been thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of the Secret Service and they have my every confidence.

I always heard it referred to as “the zero factor”: from the time of William Henry Harrison, every President elected in a year ending in “0” died in office:

1840 – Harrison – died of pneumonia.
1860 – Lincoln – assassinated.
1880 – Garfield – assassinated.
1900 – McKinley – assassinated.
1920 – Harding – probably drank himself to death in 1923.
1940 – Roosevelt – stroke in 1945.
1960 – Kennedy – assassinated.

Reagan appears to have broken the curse (allegedly placed on Harrison by an Indian shaman).

Kennedy actually wrote a short essay on the subject shortly before his election.

... Hell, I'm not sure the liberals even have the capacity. But I'd sure bet the Secret Service is probably concerned with foreign terrorist cells. Cells with ties to those getting their asses handed them now.

... Terrorists prefer pacifist leadership in this country

This cross country campaigning he is doing is incredibly dangerous even with the security that they put in place at each whistle stop. Very worrying.
