WASHINGTON — The U.S. Secret Service is looking into two death threats against President Obama that surfaced on Twitter regarding the historic health care vote in the House, according to the Daily Telegraph of Australia.

“We are aware of the comments and are taking the appropriate investigative action,” the U.S. Secret Service said, according to the Daily Telegraph. “We respect the right of free speech, but in such instances we have a right and an obligation to ask questions and determine intent.”

The paper reported that as the House debated the bill, someone tweeted on Twitter: `America, we survived the assassinations and Lincoln & Kennedy. We’ll surely get over a bullet to Barrack Obama’s head.”

“The next American with a Clear Shot should drop Obama

like a bad habit . . . Turn on Barack Obama.”

A second Twitter user wrote, according to the paper:“You should be assassinated!! @Barack Obama.If I lived in DC. I’d shoot him myself.”
