Louisiana Senator threatens to punch Bush

US Senator Mary Landrieu (Moonbat-LA) made what could be construed as a threat to physically assault President George W. Bush during an appearance on ABCNews' This Week this morning.

Sen. Mary Landrieu threatened the president of the United States with physical violence on Sunday, saying that if he or any other government official criticizes New Orleans police for failing to keep civil order in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina - "I might likely have to punch him - literally."

"If one person criticizes [our sheriffs], or says one more thing, including the president of the United States, he will hear from me - one more word about it after this show airs and I - I might likely have to punch him - literally," Landrieu railed on "ABC's "This Week."

While I, personally, don't believe that Landrieu meant that she wanted to attack the President physically, a number of people are now calling for a formal censure of Landrieu by the US Senate for her statements.

Landrieu used her on-air soapbox to lambaste the President for what she called a photo-op, specifically his Friday trip to the region to survey damage first hand. Bush is scheduled to return to areas hard-hit by Hurricane Katrina, including New Orleans, tomorrow.

It is illegal to threaten a US President physically.

If the president had NOT gone, he would have been heavily condemned for not caring enough to visit the disaster area and its people. He cannot win. But he did the right thing. He really does care about people and is tryig to encourage them and lift their spirits by letting them know they are important enough for the President of the USA to come down and see how things really are.

This Senator from LA. is simply un-fit to hold public office.

This is true for about 99.9% of public officials in Louisiana, unfortunately.

United States Senator Mary Landrieu from the State of Louisiana committed a felony when she publicly threatened the life of President George Bush. I call upon the Justice Department to follow through on an investigation and prosecuite this individual to the fullest extent of the law. Any other American committing this crime would by now be in Federal Custody. President Bush represents every American Citizen and it is not his or the White House's responsibility to enforce Federal Laws, it's the Justice Department who is responsible for enforcing this law.
