I find it interesting that when I googled DNC Delegate threatens to kill Mitt Romney...ABC is the only major new agency that pops up with it. I thought at least FOX would show up in the search. The media is what gets to me.. I just wish Nov would hurry up and get here. The political process is dividing this country more then anything else.
A threat is a threat. If I said this of potus you can bet your arse I'd be arrested. So what diff? That she is older? Words have meaning.An intent to assault. My understanding is that SS is looking into and they have to take steps. If they dont then when someone does this to potus there will an outcry for more of a two face/lies of this admin.
What a disgrace this woman is to the people of PR . I hope they disown her fast!
NY delegation was reported to be 2/3 against reincluding god and Israel stuff. Now this. WTF dept, isn't it. May they all get pancreatic cancer.
LOL - Obviously, she was at a loss for words and her frustration took over. But I guess the right-wing media being as desperate as they are will take what they can get.
And finally the Secret Service will investigate!
THE SECRET SERVICE SHOULD BE ON THIS WOMAN...THAT WAS D DIRECT THREAT ON MITT'S LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She's in the political correct party, that's for sure. She wants to "kill" and that's exactly what the Democratic Party of America's ideals are all about - the Culture of Death.
Infanticide, eugenics, euthanasia, health-care rationing, assisted-suicide, abortion, partial-birth abortion, forced sterilization, etc.
And, for her race, in New York city, a 53% abortion rate must really please her thirst for blood.
I had to be a PUERTORICAN, I lived in PR for over 10 years, my parents are from there and still living in PR. What a disgrace, what a fool, what a clown and what a typical idiotic DEMOCRAT she is, buy hey, she is a DEMOCRAP and what else do you expect?
As many Borriquen I've known since growing up in New Jersey, you can't tell me this woman has been living in the Bronx for 40 years and CAN'T SPEAK THE LANGUAGE properly. She hasn't a clue; she's been fed the Left-Good, Right-Bad mantra since she came here, and if she truly knew what she was saying, she needs to be questioned by SS...the same way all of 0's detractors seem to be.
This woman's comment is reprehensible, and I agree that she should get a visit from the Secret Service, absolutely. Threats of violence are beyond the pale.
That said? This is one old woman, clearly upset and possibly -- probably? -- egged on by an interviewer for a comically right-wing outlet. (We don't know what led up to that weird outburst.) Hard to imagine that anyone, even the most hysterical partisan, considers this old lady a threat.
What's more disturbing to me are the 100+ comments here, many of which are vile, hostile, xenophobic, and/or nakedly racist.
What a tremendous and shameless outpouring of hate.
Imagine this nitwits vote counts as much as yours. As a delegate we pay her way to go down there as a representative? There are so many hypocritical, self serving, uninformed people making comments such as these it's hard to believe. No substance in their comments because their either uninformed, misinformed or just plain hypnotized by the halo. I always thought the Puerto Rican bloc as a whole, were a God loving people with a sense of family, love and values. The Public Housing Project that this senile, ignorant moron represents must be a real doozy. If this is the best they have to represent any point of view God, yeah God, help us.
I think she is such an example for Democrats and the Obama administration that they created the life of Julia in her honor...LOL
Is there no one in the Democrat party that isn't unhinged? Even the speakers at DNC and leaders are unhinged.
This woman is a delegate? To what, the Fraternal Order of Insane People? Wow, with "delegates" like this running the Democratic party, Republicans should be ashamed of themselves if they don't win.
How patriotic, she's carrying a Puerto Rican flag.
Where's the media outrage over her comment? How about her flag? In their pathetic, touchy-feely world, this should get on their last nerve... oh, but wait... she wants to kill Romney, not their beloved messiah... oh, okay... my bad.
There's no fool like an old fool. I was shocked to hear that old woman say what she said. For heaven's sake the Left is losing it big time. I guess that means they feel like the election is slipping away and they are getting desperate. A person couldn't say anything about harming the president without facing serious legal problems, so why can she say that about a presidential candidate without the same consequences?
Romney or Obama no difference. we need people from the middle class and the down & out to do right for this country.
My goodness. I am truly saddened to hear this little old woman talk this way. "If I see him, I would like to kill him." She is obviously speaking out of ignorance, but I believe that she truly believes what she is saying, that "Romney will completely destroy this country." But ignoring the sheer idiocy of that belief, it should bother all of us that her response to that belief is "I [want to] kill him." It's one thing to want someone lose an election, and quite another thing to want them dead & be willing to say it out loud....on TV!
Why do liberals approach everything from such an angry, violent, hateful point of view? Do they conduct their entire lives this way? It must be terrible for them & everyone they know.
I'm guessing that will be thoroughly ignored by the MSM.
This is the "are you better off?" problem: For almost half the population, they are doing exactly the same as four years ago. They were getting their government cheese then and they're getting their government cheese now. If Obama wins, they will continue to get cheese. if Romney wins, they may not get more cheese. They could not care less about the economy or the $16 trillion in debt or tax rates. Those mean nothing. They just want their cheese. That's what "shared opportunity" means to them. We work and pay taxes and they get cheese.
Destroy this country HOW?
Point 1: Yeah, she sounds nuts but the Blaze reporterette should have asked for DETAILS of how Romney would do a better job of destroying the country than Obama is doing right now.
Point 2: Had someone from CNN or MSNBC gotten a similar response from her opposite number in the Tea Party re Obama, the Secret Service would have been called in to investigate. By the next day there would be hours of video devoted to "exposing" her and her family, including the shocking revelation that her third cousin Orville drove off a bridge and left his dog to drown back in 1969. (And Chrissy Matthews would ask if the dog had been strapped to the roof.)
I wonder if the lapdog lamestream media would ignore the same comment if it was made by at the Republican convention by one of their delegates. That if they meet obama they would just want to kill him.
Nope, she didn't threaten to kill him. She said that if she sees him she would like to kill hiim. It's a technical difference, but it's a big difference.
It was still completely out of line and very wrong.
Kong: say publicly you would like to kill -sayu, FuBar Ack.
............"would like"....of course.....
See you in a few years or decades.
The folks in La Raza could use her. They are full of haters and subversives. She'd actually feel right at home, I think.
Mrs. Rodriguez is the kind of "women vote" Obama is seeking. She should first learn English and then kill some weight and not people........Go back to Puerto Rico and learn to say Country!
I wouldn't kiss that sow with Bonnie Fwanks lips. But she is an icon of the left, throughout history. Hope she gets her entitlement checks on time.
There it is. Civility for me but not for thee. If someone said that about Obama, they'd be detained in Guantanamo probably for the rest of their natural lives.
