Since Barack Obama announced he would run for president, there have been stories of assassination plots. On October 27, 2008, it was reported that the ATF uncovered a plot by neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Obama. The two men arrested, Paul Schlesselman and Daniel Cowart, planned on going on a “killing spree” at an African American high school and then assassinating Obama.
Concerns over a possible assassination attempt have been increasing since Obama won the Iowa caucus in January 2008. Obama, his wife Michelle and their children have been under Secret Service protection since that time. 2008 is also the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, when he was a presidential candidate.
You can get Keep Obama Alive t-shirts here. The site sells more than just shirts, you can also get mugs, tracksuits, buttons, stickers, hats, and my favorite… the thong. I’ve heard rumors there may be a more “controversial” slogan version coming soon as well.
