Yea, Obama said that.
(Wall Street Journal) That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. [...] Obama made the comment in the context of warning donors that the general election campaign against McCain could get ugly. “They’re going to try to scare people. They’re going to try to say that ‘that Obama is a scary guy,’” he said.
When contemplating ‘whose ass to kick‘ next – yes, Obama said that, too – he and his administration have no problem using phrases like, ‘keep our boot on the neck of (fill-in-the-blank)‘ — all conveniently shoved down the memory hole by psychopathic mainstream media as ‘reporters’ and politicians attempt to pin Sarah Palin on the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.
Sure, there may be little hope for the sheeple continuously feeding at troughs filled with laced recycled tripe mainstream media likes to call ‘news’, but maybe, just maybe, alternative media (aka new media) can upset the sh*t factory before it ensnares more addicts.
So instead of me spending the next umpteen days elaborating on everything that is wrong with the tainted ‘news’ of Gabrielle Giffords shooting, my new media colleagues have done a masterful job – a surgical job – of locating and draining the political poison administered by mainstream media and supporters regarding this sad, unfortunate affair perpetrated by a lunatic.
I’ll start with a few ‘smoking guns‘, then turn it over to some of the best in the business, by adding relevant links to their sites.
Warning: Many of the ‘smoking gun’ links are being removed from the web as I type (surprising, I know); so if the link doesn’t get you there, it’s probably gone. But that’s why God created screen captures.
First, a list of Twitter tweets from Catie Parker, the friend of Jared Lee Loughner (shooter):

The Associated Press and NPR ‘link’ Palin to Giffords:
(AP – NPR) Giffords has drawn the ire of the right in the last year, especially from politicians like Sarah Palin over her support of the health care bill.
Her Tucson office was vandalized a few hours after the House voted to approve the health care law in March, with someone either kicking or shooting out a glass door and window. In an interview after the vandalism, Giffords referred to the animosity against her by conservatives. Palin listed Giffords’ seat as one of the top “targets” in the midterm elections because of the lawmakers’ support for the health care law.
“For example, we’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list, but the thing is, that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realize that there are consequences to that action,” Giffords said in an interview with MSNBC.
