Oh, one last thing; you left out that credible roommate's name from your post (I'm SURE it was an accident tho :-)).
"Mohammed Badawood" (LOL).
We will see who it was when the truth eventually comes out. COULD be a gutless rightwing nut like Eric Rudolph, but I doubt it. Reeks of muslims....
funny you bring up Rudolph. the comparisons i've seen concerning the M.O. of the bomber also mentioned him.

The Saudi Arabian man who has been investigated in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings is not a suspect, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

The man had been questioned in a Boston hospital while recovering from injuries sustained in Monday's blasts, and his Revere, Mass. apartment was searched by state and federal law enforcement officials. But one of his roommates adamantly insisted that the man, who is in his 20s and studying in the Boston area, was not involved in the deadly bombings.

On Tuesday, that was confirmed by federal officials, according to a report published in the Washington Post and detailed during a broadcast on CNN. The man, who has not yet been identified, has been questioned only as a witness.

Hah, and the chief surgeon's (2) who are explaining the injuries on FOX are furriner's. Don't tell Flack or Nobama__they think furrin doctors are the result of ObamaCare.

BTW there's a Starbucks at the corner of Berkeley St and Boylston, right where one of the bombs exploded. There must have been quite a crowd gathered there.

<quoted text> I'm with you on Obamacare. I don't have a problem saying Obama's wrong, but your going to act like you didn't notice that you were completely taking credit from dems, & completely shifting blame on the dems. How is that unbiased? My political ideology probably leans left more than right for 1 reason. The right set the deck & after they're winning have the nerve to ask everyone else to play fair. After dropping the ball on 9/11, they believe they know what's best for the country. They don't care the rest of the world is starving as long as they're making record profits. My problem with the left is, they want to live in a world with no boundaries, like life is a blissful event. It's not & there's a need for laws. Without boundaries & laws to govern the country, America becomes a 3rd world country in a state of anarchy. One of my favorite rappers"Nas"said, "who you going to elect, satan or satan." This holds true & it's a shame. Maybe you don't agree with the president. Sometime I don't, but negative thought produces negative results. IMO, America has outgrown the constitution. This is not the same country as back then, but some of our sharpest minds should draft another 1 that reflects on the day & time we're living in, not the 1600s to the early 1900s. That's the biggest contrast between the 2 major parties. The interpretation of the constitution!
The problem we have here is both of us not admitting there was a mutual "dropping of the ball" that caused 9/11 to happen.

Clinton had the ball for five years leading up to it. Ironically, it was the same amount of time the plot was being planned.

No blame there?

Why would you blame Bush for not knowing the day, the time, the place and the targets for 9/11? No one knew that.

When Clinton was elected his first term, I was disappointed but thought of him as my president too. Then the scandals kept coming and dragging us through the mud during his second term.

As for this president, I've never trusted him any further than I could throw him. He doesn't understand the heart of America and formulated his own "vision" of this country from an Ivory Tower and privilege provided to him by this country. The unsavory influences throughout his lifetime actually go against everything this country has stood for and has spent precious blood and treasure preserving.

So like I told you yesterday, I blame Obama for just being Obama. I blame my fellow Americans for so willingly forgetting all the good we have done in the world and becoming tools of the state.

If more Americans don't wake up soon, you, too, will look back and know I and many others have been right all along.

The country actually isn't the same anymore. We all basically once shared the same values. Not anymore. It's a matter of what kind of country we're going to become that sets you and I apart.

Like I’ve said anytime Obama makes a statement it has an expiration date, within 24 hrs. After saying the Boston Bombing was a ‘Tragedy’ today for the first time, President Obama used the "T" word to describe Monday's deadly bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon!! This wasn't a presser, this was a clean-up on aisle four!!

Sharing an excellent comment:
"At this point there are only two possibilities. Either the Boston bombing was a false-flag, or it was a real act of terror. Personally, I am leaning towards false-flag; we are just waiting to see who (other than Muslims) gets framed for it. But if this was a genuine act of terror, what it tells us is that DHS, TSA, FBI, CIA, the Fusion centers, are all a complete waste of taxpayer money. All the databases, all the warrantless scanning of our emails, social media, phone calls, all the crotch-grabbing, cameras, microphones, GPS tracking, naked scanners, were totally and completely useless. Even the bomb sniffing dogs, on site in Boston supposedly for a training incident, failed to sniff the bombs. From top to bottom, the entire security industrial complex laid a big fat egg on this one. They failed, simply and utterly. And therefore, there is no more justification for the people of the United States to put up with this erosion of Our Constitutional Rights. Simply on the basis of total incompetence, Boston justifies the firing of the Federal government.

We still live in a free country. Preventing random acts like this is virtually impossible. Homemade bombs can be made relatively easily and cause much damage.

Preventing everyone with a backpack from entering a subway or an open arena or anywhere where there's a crowd and exploding a bomb is just not possible.

We can only monitor plots to a certain extent even though we've managed to disrupt quite a few of them.

But we are always going to be vulnerable. Just like everyone else in a free society.

Obama was just too quick to announce he had the enemy on the run. Another sign of poor leadership and indictative of a heady president.

Still slinging slurs.

Most people believe that people that resort to using racial slurs are below average intelligence & generally uneducated & uninformed.

So we go from slurs to the "Obama is a Muslim" lie to the "apology tour" crap.

"NJ raider 1"
We are out of the recession? You do live in La La Land. Let us take a look;
- GDP growth in the 1st. quarter of 2013 minus 0.1%
- Millions more American's on Food stamps
- Millions fewer American's paying Federal Income tax
- Average household incomes declining
- 1/2 a million American's leaving the job force because of the lack of jobs in March alone
- Nobamakare on the horizon which will cost billions
- 6 trillion in new debt in just over 4 years
- Creeping inflation, particularly on food products
Get your head out of your ass.

Obama on Boston: The Question of Terror
President Obama’s statement on the explosions at the Boston Marathon was brief and restrained; he was navigating not just the terrain of violence and loss, as he did in Newtown, but the basic mystery of what had happened.“We don’t yet have all the answers,” he said.“We still do not know who did this or why, and people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. But, make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this, and we will find out who did this and we will find out why they did this.” As vague as that was, it was, at least, unambiguous about there being a who—that this wasn’t some freak accident.(The Boston police commissioner, at his first press conference, had said,“Reach your own conclusions.”)
“Terror” wasn’t a word Obama used, either—perhaps because it’s a word that only affixes itself to a crime when we know, as Obama said, who did it, and why, or at least have a better sense of it. Monday night, Richard DesLauriers, the special agent in charge of the F.B.I.’s Boston office, which was taking the lead, called this a “a criminal investigation” that was “a potential terrorist investigation”(Some in the Administration, CNN reported, had been less cautious.)
If so, one should ask whether we are simply driven to apply the terror label (or leave it off) because of the who, or because of the why. We can talk about whether a lone mad man with only personal demons counts as a terrorist, or how political a crime needs to be to count, or about why we discard other words, like “murderer.” Maybe what matters is that the public life of a city was so violently compromised. Those are good and complicated questions. What is not right is whether the killers of at least three people in Boston, and the maimers of dozens, who tore apart a crowd, only count as terrorists if they look a certain way, or come from a certain place.
From some perspectives, that “why” comes across as almost radical—there were times, especially after 9/11, when it was brushed away. They hate us; don’t inquire more; it’s wrong to inquire more. But that was never helpful. Even if one’s only impulse is to defend, who wants to shoot in the dark?
“Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice,” Obama said. In the three minutes or so he was out there, he said the other things he had to: that he had called the Governor of Massachusetts and the Mayor of Boston—“they have every single federal resource necessary”—and members of Congress, and that there were no Democrats or Republicans on days like these.(We’ll see if that is also the case tomorrow.) That the first responders “responded heroically, and continue to do so as we speak.” That a lot of people had been hurt,“some gravely.” That, again,“we are still in the investigative stage”—there would be more briefings.“Boston is a tough and resilient town. So are its people.” He also said,“the American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight.”

Piece by piece, evidence has begun to accumulate that after four years of lackluster performance, the U.S. economy is on track for stronger growth than many people had expected.

The latest support for that view comes from data on consumer spending, which grew at a surprisingly quick pace in February, pushed upward by robust demand for cars and building materials.

The report this week from the Commerce Department came just a few days after employment figures showed faster improvement than most economists had projected, in large part because of the strong rebound of the market for housing. A measure of first-time unemployment claims fell to a five-year low last week.

Despite speculation indicating otherwise, most employers don’t plan to drop workers from their healthcare plans as a result of Obamacare, a new survey finds.

Nearly 70 percent of benefit professionals said their companies “definitely will” keep offering coverage to full-time workers next year, when many of the provisions of President Obama’s healthcare reform law take effect, according to a recent survey from the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans. Just one percent of the respondents said their companies definitely wouldn’t be offering health care coverage to full-time workers and two percent said it was “somewhat unlikely.”

This is the Golden Age of deficit reduction. Really.

You wouldn’t know it if you listen to the professional deficit hawks, who have plowed hundreds of millions of dollars and countless op-eds into a fruitless effort to drive a grand bargain on taxes and spending. But it is. Policy is nobody’s idea of optimal. But nonetheless the gridlock of the past few years has produced spending restraint and higher tax rates. President Obama has proposed more of both in the budget he released on Wednesday. The sequester has just kicked in. And sustained economic growth, the miracle deficit cure, continues to work its magic. The expansion is now in its 46th month.
