Obama's Healthcare Plan, Twittered Assassination Threat

Obama's healthcare plan has passed but assassination, impeachment, and vetoes to Obama's second term are flooding Twitter, the White House, and the media wave.

On Sunday, after the passage of the healthcare reform bill, Solly Forell posted assassination threats on Twitter. The Secret Service is investigating this incident as well as one other. Forell's Twitter post read: "ASSASSINATION! America, we survived the Assassinations and Lincoln & Kennedy. We'll surely get over a bullet to Barrack Obama's head." Forell wrote, hiding behind his Twitter "handle" and obviously not the author's true identity. Forell is profiled as an "authentic African American" and a self proclaimed conservative blogger.

Forell went on after the initial post to tweet that anyone with a "clear shot" should attempt to assassinate the President.

The Secret Service will assuredly identify and prosecute Forell for his assassination threats.
