    Another:So much for civility.

    Other websites displayed some of the posts which were vulgar along with threats of torture and death to his wife and children.

    I really hope some of these people are prosecuted.

    This is yet another example of how vile and vicious the left is, the left that has made in roads into taking over our country, just another example of their true colors.

    Most emphatically agree!!
    And I sure hope that most of the folk who have decided that Romney is not ---- (you fill in the blank) ---- enough "---for me to vote for him", keep in mind that a vote for a 3rd party or not voting at all equals a vote FOR THE ZERO.
    Your conscience will be really clear:)rolleyes:) if you help give a liberal legacy to your kids & grans.:BangHead:

    Yes these are vile and viscious.

    I hope they are not representative of the law-abiding liberal citizens of Wisconsin but are the over-the-line zealots.

    I also hope that these hate-mongers don't spread their disease to others or attemp to carry out their threats.

    To be fair, the far right also has its share of over-the-line individuals.

    Hopefully every threat is tracked down and prosecuted to the fullest of the law.

    It really is troubling at how conservatives can be targeted for violence.

    Different topic than the Wisconsin governor, but saw on Michelle Malkin's sight, she is having a "going dark" protest on her sight to bring attention to other conservatives that have been targeted for extreme hate of late.

    "Going dark to urge congressional action: Who will protect the freedom to blog?"
