I wondered when the good pastor would be arrested for threatening the life of the President of the United States.
There are some follow-ups to the story.
Anderson has refined his position on the President's demise:
"If you want to know how I'd like to see Obama die, I'd like him to die of natural causes," said Anderson. "I don't want him to be a martyr, we don't need another holiday. I'd like to see him die, like Ted Kennedy, of brain cancer."And Broughton (bless his heart) adds:
"I concur, I think we'd be better off if God would send (Obama) where he's going now instead of later," said Broughton. "(Obama) is destroying our country."That's enough. Add Chris Broughton to the list of Arizonans who should be arrested for threatening the life of the President of the United States.
When asked if he was advocating violence against the President, Broughton said he wouldn't answer the question directly.
TPM had this from the Secret Service:
Asked about pastor Steven Anderson and gun-toter Chris Broughton's repeated wishes for President Barack Obama to die, Special Agent Darrin Blackford of the Secret Service sends along this statement:Which is probably all we'll get from the Secret Service (and rightly so) at this point.
"We are aware of the situation and appropriate follow up will be conducted."
