    Facebook: "Should President Obama be assassinated?"

    Secret Service Probing Obama Assassination Poll on Facebook

    The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a "poll" posted on Facebook that asked users the most unsocial, unspeakable question: Should President Obama be assassinated?

    Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said the agency will take "appropriate investigative steps" in connection to the survey, which was posted on Saturday and was quickly removed when Facebook employees were alerted to its existence.

    "We are continuing our investigation," Donovan told FOXNews.com, declining further comment.

    The poll asked respondents: "Should Obama be killed?"

    The possible answers were "no," "maybe," yes," and "yes if he cuts my health care."

    Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt said a "third-party application" enabled an individual user to create what he said was an "offensive poll."

    "The application was immediately suspended while the inappropriate content could be removed by the developer and until such time as the developer institutes better procedures to monitor their user-generated content," Schnitt said in a statement to FOXNews.com.

    Facebook is now cooperating with the Secret Service, Schnitt said.

    Bob Beckel, a Democratic Party strategist and FOX News contributor, said the individual responsible for the poll should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    "This is the kind of garbage that's generated from the extreme right against Obama, and it's going way over the line," Beckel told FOXNews.com. "It's got to be stopped. Find him, prosecute him and put him in jail."

    Regardless of political persuasion, Beckel said such threats are "un-American" and simply not acceptable.

    "If they don't like what Obama is doing, then maybe they ought to go out and vote for someone else," he said. "But relying on this kind of attack is un-American and unacceptable."

    In November, prior to Obama's landslide election victory, officials from the Secret Service declined to comment on the number of threats he had received, but they said they saw more threats against him than any other candidate during the campaign.

    Bloody rediculous! Dont people have better things to do with their time than create this crap? At the end of the day, elections create leaders and elections change leadership. Whoever did this needs a valuable lesson in what is and isnt appropriate. Looks like theyre gonna get it too.

    serious question:

    If Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, John Hancock and the rest had Facebook, do you guys think they would have put a poll like this about local judges/govenors/the king?

    I was in a restroom at a gas station near Bowling Green, KY a few weeks ago and someone wrote on the walls in big black writing "OBAMA MUST DIE!!!" which made my heart sink.

    There is just no excuse for such words regardless of your political affiliation. He is OUR president. If you don't like him, vote him out. But all this fear and hate gets us nowhere.

    And I would say the exact same thing if it was Bush or any other president.

    the gate keepers of facebook need to monitor this shit.

    And, to the people who put this type of shit on facebook - I'd call you fucking retards - but that would insult fucking retards around the world. I'm sure the only reason you were born is because your dad barely beat the dog over the fence.

    I hated Bush..hated him. But would never stoop to this type of shit. Seriously cut their nuts off, put them in a blender and serve it to them on a cracker.

    Does the Secret Service have a Facebook page? Can I friend them or just become a fan?

    Two years ago, some Canadian made a movie about the assassination of President Bush. I didn't think it was funny. This is poll is just fucking stupid, the murder of the President - ANY PRESIDENT - is just out of line.

    As for Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, and Hancock, those men were patriots. What if Hancock posted a poll questioning if President Washington or President Jefferson should be shot?

    Same thing.
