Apparently there are mobs of people with guns attending town halls to complain about health care in the US. I've often told people that they should ease up on Obama because he's not the messiah, but this is starting to sound quite familiar...

This is pure leftist politics view and I don't mean that you hold the view. No guns, one incident from a librarian that wore outside a meeting where it *was* legal to do so. It was a non issue turned into a rhetorical comment maid by a liberal reporter who was told by the anchor that he was wrong.

And ya maybe some people think he is the Messiah, but best I can tell he is just a miss-guided man.

Best to ya.

Sadly, what I have to go on is US News media, which is in worse shape than it's politics.

I would like to hope that Americans can engage in friendly debate over how best to remove problems like people dying from third-world diseases like TB and medical-related bankruptcies. Sometimes I get the feeling that American's don't all agree that this is even a problem. =(

Media hype for sure. I wish they'd focus more on the right to carry - regardless of the event. The carrier was not near the president.

If you want balanced view (in U.S. politics or anything else), your only option is really to take the story from the partisans on both sides and make your own decision---the mainstream media, especially in the U.S., is notorious for their bias these days, and it's the kind of bias that you can't see unless you know it's there (i.e. in what they choose to report).

I'd recommend that you get the stories from hotair.com and dailykos.com (two largest right wing and left wing blogs that cover almost everything political) and make up your own mind.

And, as for "Messiah", well, if you are a Christian, the next one to get assassinated is actually the Antichrist---Jesus is not coming back a second time in a mortal form. I guess the Jewish messiah hasn't come yet, though.

I think the Jewish messiah came and went without anyone noticing.

He was the one to re-establish the state of Israel, so presumably it was Arthur Balfour, or the second Baron Rothschild, or one of their contemporaries. All long dead.
