"Bomb Obama!" he said repeatedly. "Get rid of him," he told the cameraman. "I've had a number of people in the...when he gets in the White House...(mimicks the sound of a gun firing)." The exchange was reported to Pottsville police and the Secret Service. Pottsville Police Captain Richard Wojciechowsky reportedly said it "did not sound serious."Looks like Murtha had a point.
"I'd never vote for a black man," said a Democratic McCain supporter. "[I don't] want to sound racist here," said another participant, "but I do not want a black man running my country."
"Catholics must not vote for Obama," a protest sign read. "They will be ex-communicated from the Catholic Church."
Various rally participants, while waiting to greet Senator McCain's "Straight Talk Express" tour bus, called Senator Obama a communist, claimed his stances and connections were "un-American," and one said that Obama was born in Kenya. (He was actually born in Hawaii.) One referred to him as "President Hussein."
