It’s a good thing the authorities already have a suspect in mind, or else somebody might have blamed this on those darn Teabaggers (if they haven’t anyway).

As a matter of fact, the truth could be in the opposite direction:

ABC News has learned authorities are increasingly concerned that a man sought in connection with a bizarre shooting incident on the Washington Mall last week may pose a threat to President Obama.

The Secret Service now suspects that a bullet fired in this incident may have hit the White House after a bullet round was found in a White House window, though the round had not yet been conclusively linked to the incident. The round was stopped by ballistic glass behind the historic exterior glass, while an additional round has been found on the exterior of the White House.

Police believe the suspect, 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho, is mentally ill. Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House.
[...]
Authorities suspect Ortega has been in the area for weeks, coming back and forth to the Washington Mall. Before the shooting, he was detained by local police at an abandoned house. U.S. Park police say Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters.

He certainly would blend in nicely with the Occupiers, that’s for sure.

Meanwhile, the MSM refuses to stop linking the Tea Party and Sarah Palin to the shooting of Rep. Giffords, when in fact it was the work of a mentally ill lunatic, probably not unlike the person above who the media would never dare link to the Occupy protest.

Update: AP reporting the suspect has been arrested at a Pennsylvania hotel.

Update II: More on the suspect here. Thankfully he was caught.

    I would suggest that maybe he wants to occupy the White House, but the White House is already occupied.

    With all the sniping and blame-gaming that goes on in the WH one might be hard pressed to know whether the bullet came from outside or within.

    Yeah, yeah, we know, it’s not their fault, blah, blah, blah.

    Looks like FLOTUS plopped herself down in one of those “underserviced neighborhoods” she was talking about, you know, where it isn’t safe to go out of the front door after sunset.

    Well, there goes the neighborhood. Pretty soon all the grocery stores will be closing, and the kids won’t have access to vegetables and they’ll be doomed to obesity. etc., etc., blah, blah, blah.

    Comments appear to be running 80% ( rough estimate ) toward the Conservative camp/Anti-OWS even at HuffPo!

    Has the world gone mad..!?

    "Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. "

    And he's only 21? Wow. Must be kin to the Occupiers. Did he come from a basement in Idaho?

  6. Marshall_Will on November 16th, 2011 2:32 pm

    Hyper,

    Thought it was an impressive track record in such a short span myself! Sounds like he and Loghner roomed together? Great links Doug included btw. Diane Sawyer needs to either RETIRE or sign up for some relaxing electroshock 'therapy'.

    Hang it up Di.

    I want to be extra cautious here, and not just b/c Gabby may be the (1) decent and only remaining Democrat in the country. Not in any WAY to make light of her situation or brave recovery!:

    But excuuuuse me!? How much better 'off' are any of the independent business people in this country that were taken out back, summarily executed, thrown in a trench and covered in lime?

    After the 11th Hour Bush Tax 'Cuts' debacle, several Prog/panic driven ballot measures and the ultimate blooper, ObieCare, having spent the last three years in a coma is looking better and better? It was an Economic Cleansing, designed to GUT the small business community and send us -begging- for the dole/crumbs of crony capitalism! There, I said it. It was a way of 'killing' people ( read self-employed conservatives ) without all the stench and messy clean up.

    Even at HuffPo ?! Now I know you`re just talking CRAZY ! ;-)

  9. SignPainterGuy on November 16th, 2011 5:28 pm

    All intentional ! I can`t see it any other way !

  10. SignPainterGuy on November 16th, 2011 5:31 pm

    Gabby spent two weeks here in a rehab center, it was big in local news. She will have a long, rocky road to recovery, "iffy" at best !

  11. SignPainterGuy on November 16th, 2011 5:42 pm

    "Suspect arrested" … they found his car, gun nearby to WH. His fingerprints and ID should have been a real head start ! Good for the cops !

    Paul Harvey would have had a field day, like the time a guy uses his pickup and a chain in attempt to rip an ATM from bldg wall, but managed only to rip his bumper off. He fled the scene, but cops had no trouble, since the guy`s tag was on the bumper ! Heh heh !

  12. backwoodsconsr on November 16th, 2011 6:00 pm

    Now he gets to occupy a jail cell, and everything he needs will be provided for him. He should be happy!

  13. Marshall_Will on November 16th, 2011 6:39 pm

    Pffffttt!

    Fo' LIFE Yo'. Just might be the (1) OWS'r to actually get his list of demands met?

    Look for more DOJ-style sleight of hand as this leads to a broader investigation involving everyone from J. Edgar to GWB!

  14. Patriot on November 16th, 2011 7:56 pm

    Yup, yup- if you're part of team Obama's OWS crew for example and do this, you're defended and supported as simply being "mentally ill". I mean, what else could explain it, right? But otherwise, well you're doing as commanded by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, etc and the rest of those hate spewing, racist conservatives.

  15. Marshall_Will on November 16th, 2011 7:57 pm

    Again, by way of careful analogy, is the prognosis any better for the REST of us? What I see happening in the biz community is, everyone wants a "total makeover". New CPA, new employees, new vendors. A clean SLATE!

    It's been so painful, the way a spouse will just GIVE away the few things their S.O hadn't already walked off with, rather than LOOK at them every day?

    It's WRONG. It's STOOPID but that's what we're doing. I understand rape victims wanting to take a shower but this won't just 'wash off'. It's more like being branded. BHO style..!

  16. SignPainterGuy on November 16th, 2011 10:39 pm

    Did you see where the docs relating to any connection with the Terry killing have "mysteriously disappeared" ?

    Yeah, that`s it, It`s Hoover`s fault !

  17. SignPainterGuy on November 16th, 2011 10:42 pm

    That kind of malcontent wouldn`t be happy with a rap star`s income and bling !
