I notice Obama pointedly did not use the "t" word in his speech.
Wonder who will take the "credit" for this cowardly, horrible act???
Sadly, I'm wondering when conservatives will twist this for political gain...
Do you mean conservatives like Steny Hoyer and Barney Franks?
Asked by a reporter whether Monday's attack makes the argument for addressing sequestration, Hoyer explained, "I think there are multiple reasons for ensuring that we invest in our security -- both domestic and international security. That we invest in the education of our children. That we invest in growing jobs in America. And don't pursue an irrational, across-the-board policy of cutting the highest priorities and the lowest priorities essentially the same percentage.... I think this is another proof of that -- if proof is needed, which I don't think frankly it is."
“Yes, exactly — I’m talking common sense,” Frank said. “I’m saying that if the sequester had gone through, as we had not had enough money, we couldn’t be able to do this. Yeah. I’m making an argument about reality. And I think that’s the only sensible response. We are spending a great deal of public money here. I am glad that we are.”
Frank called it a “teaching moment.”
“And yes, I do want maybe for this to have some people be less enthusiastic about reducing our ability to respond to a crisis like this."
I doubt it was pointed as the government had already categorized it as a terroristic act when he gave that speech.
Writes Hans Damaske on the Boston bombing:
"My heart goes out to the innocent victims of this tragedy, and their families. However, I couldn't help but wonder, upon hearing the news, which of my few remaining liberties will be denied to me to prevent this from 'ever happening again'. Until it does happen again, of course. At which point the bureaucrats will assume even more power."
"Never let a good crisis go to waste" - Rahm Emmanuel.
You mean like the Democrat congressman who blamed the GOP for the bombing because they did not approve the ATF appointment? Or like MSNBC blaming the right as long time radical bombers, I guess he never heard of the Chicago Seven, or the The Symbionese Liberation Army.
Ah, the Chicago Seven!
"President Lyndon Johnson's Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, discouraged an indictment, believing that the violence during the convention was primarily caused by actions of the Chicago police."
AH Liberal Democrat Attorney General Ramsey ClarK, Imagine that: he discouraged prosecution of the Left group CHicago Seven. Kind of sounds like Liberal Democrat Attorney General Eric Holder refusing to prosecute the liberal Black Panthers. Hmm, a pattern there?
BTW, you think the convention was the only action the seven ever took alone or collectively?

Right now, I'm following live updates on Yahoo about this tragedy. It's just terrible. Two were confirmed dead and hundreds wounded. There is so much speculation as to what could have been the cause and, of course, terrorism being the first possibility (and seemingly the only possibility to some...
