Keystone Progress blog has video where a McCain support is seen to be chanting “bomb Obama” outside a rally in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.

“One of the McCain supporters was caught on video shouting “Bomb Obama!” repeatedly. When asked what he meant, he said, ‘Get rid of him. I’ve had a number of people in the… when he gets in the White House…’”

“He then formed a gun with his hand and made a shooting sound.”

“The incident was reported immediately to Pottsville Police Captain Richard Wojciechowsky, who said it did not sound serious.”

“The video later was shown to the Secret Service.”

This video is from KeystoneProgress.org, broadcast October 28, 2008.
