Murderer Who Planned To Assassinate President Obama Sentenced To Death

Murderer Who Planned To Assassinate President Obama Sentenced To Death | Politics & Policy | Scoop.it
A man who murdered a senior citizen as part of a plot to assassinate the President Of The United States has been sentenced to death.

There are many conservatives who make a good living by demonizing Obama. Their tactics have helped to polarize our politics, and create an ugly situation that President Obama has had to govern through."
