A man in Washington State has been arrested for threatening Obama

via AP

This from FOX news:
Anton Caluori, 31, was arrested at an apartment in this south Seattle suburb for investigation of making threats against the president and assault on a federal officer, said Brian Leary, a Secret Service spokesman in Washington, D.C.
Also this:
A Secret Service agent and a Federal Way police officer went to an apartment in a four-plex at the Panther Ridge Apartments, knocked and announced themselves for about three minutes, then found themselves facing a man armed with a shotgun when the door opened, Schrock said. 
"The shotgun was coming up to point in the direction of the agents," she said. "The two officers were able to close in and take control of the weapon before anyone was harmed."
The officers also seized a gun in the man's ankle holster, she said. 
Because the resident made statements about explosive devices in the apartment, the Federal Way bomb squad was called to evacuate the four-plex and sweep it for explosives, Schrock said. None was found.
This sounds like an extremist. We'll definitely see Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin or the Tea Party blamed for this.
