Obama has a town hall meeting in Portsmouth New Hampshire today, and the nuts are out in full force.
Get this: MSNBC this morning caught a live shot of a man with a gun in a holster. No, he is not a law enforcement person; he's one of the protesters. And the sign he's carrying? It's got that famous Jefferson quote on it: ""The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
MSNBC was told by local police that the guy with the gun has a legal permit to carry, and he's nowhere near where Obama will be, and he's under constant surveillance.
UPDATE: The Obama town hall meeting was televised; it seemed to be civil (invited participants and heavy police guard probably helped)
It's kind of embarrassing (for our country's level of discourse) that it's come to the point where the President of the United States has to publicly state that he's not in favor of killing Grandma.
