Vice President Biden _ Prayer for Boston
"Apparently there has been a bombing," Biden said. "I don't know any of the details of what caused it, who did it. I don't think it exists yet. But our prayers are with those people in Boston who suffered injury."

I believe Biden is a decent and good man at heart.

He's just misled like so many others.

But "al Qaeda on the run" is no longer a talking point for both Obama and Biden. Just sounded good during an election year.

Just noticed something. If you change the "s" in Osama to a "b" and take out the "n, l and a" and squeeze together the remaining letters in bin Laden, you have Obama and Biden.

Just seems a rather unusual coincidence. Nothing more.

Illegal?

Gee. That's a new one on me.

How did he get away with going over the head of Congress and the American people?

Do you work for Hollywood by any chance?

Do you switch off part of your brain to accommodate your bias?

What about all the deaths caused by Obama?

Congress gave Bush permission to go into Iraq including 111 Democrats.

You really must keep all switches on at all times.

As Hillary predicted, the haves would rub sht in the faces of the have nots. And as she also pointed out the "average" American has no clue as to how insurance actually works or how the health insurers have stacked the deck in their own favor.
Hillarys CHIP program is a good thing.

It's all the lazy azz slackerTics that do nothing but drain it just because they can, that ruins it, and drives up healthcare costs.

Where's the REFORM on all the the socia freeriderl HANDOUT programs? There's plenty of room for some--it;s time for the WORKING class ABOVE table tax payers to reap some of what they contribute to, year after year-and the abusers and loserTics to take less!

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.
http://sherriequestioningall.blogspot.com/201...
Even though I did say it's next to impossible to prevent random acts of violence in crowded open events, I don't disagree with you about firing the Federal government....

If this had happened under a Bush or Romney presidency, that's all the liberal media would be talking about - the blame game would have already kicked into high gear.

Not one conservative news or commentary source has even eluded to any fault on the part of this president.

That's the difference between us and them.

Right-Wing Media Sleuths Try To Create The New Richard Jewell

Days after the 1996 Olympic Park bombing, media and federal investigators focused on their top suspect: Richard Jewell, the security guard who had first discovered the bomb which killed one and injured 111. It took more than a year for Jewell to clear his name; he would successfully sue several outlets for their coverage but remained haunted by the memory of the reporters who went after him "like piranha on a bleeding cow" for years.

In the 24 hours following yesterday's tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon, several right-wing media figures have attempted to create their own Jewell. Echoing the same piranha-like voraciousness seen in that case, they have published the name, home address, and what they claim are Facebook pictures of a 20-year-old Saudi national that police have since identified as a witness -- not a suspect -- to the Boston bombings.

Less than two hours after the bombing took place, The New York Post -- citing unnamed "law enforcement sources" -- claimed that a "Saudi Arabian national" was a "suspect" in the case and that he was "under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital." Several right-wing outlets quickly trumpeted that report. But the claim quickly unraveled (as did the paper's similarly sourced claim that 12 had been killed in the explosions), with law enforcement telling reporters that no one had been arrested in the case and that the Saudi was a witness who was cooperating with authorities.

By the next afternoon, Fox News was reporting that "a federal law enforcement official is confirming... that Saudi man, the college student who was described as a person of interest in the Boston bombings, has now been ruled out as a suspect in this bombing."

But in the interim, the right-wing media -- led by popular conservative blogger Jim Hoft -- swallowed the initial Post report and began posting as much personal information about the man as they could discover.

In "silly's" world profit is a nasty word. Health care should be government loser, guaranteed to lose money and drive healthy care professionals out of the health care business. On the other hand she brags about how good her business is doing, sales and profits up 20%.
"silly" is a hypocrite.

There are heroes, and then there are people who make things worse

It's a bit early to hand out the award for Worst American, in the wake of yet another act of mass murder on the national stage, but I would be surprised if anyone manages to beat professional conspiracy peddler and continued actual cable news guest Alex Jones. His contribution to the discourse was a tweet immediately speculating whether it was a "#falseflag" operation, e.g. government-based, which would by itself be merely stupid, but when paired with actually sending a correspondent to troll the first press conference elevates itself straight to go to hell territory.

The unseen fellow asking Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick whether the Boston Massacre was a “false flag” operation so TSA agents can “put their hands down [his] pants” is apparently Dan Bidondi, a “correspondent” for Alex Jones’s Infowars.

While we have no absolutely evidence to suggest that Alex Jones and his crew personally planted the bombs so that he'd have a new conspiracy theory to sell, hey, let's not let that stop us. Jackass.

Among others whose initial first-twitch reactions come down on the worse side of valor:

A large contingent of conservative and tea party types who convinced themselves that Wolf Blitzer blamed the tea partiers for the bombings yesterday. He didn't. That didn't stop Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), already well known as a spouter of previous strings of offensive gibberish, from calling on Blitzer to apologize.(For the record, Blitzer's crime was pointing out, correctly, that the 15th was "Patriots' Day". Those who chose to read more into his remarks than that did so of their own choosing.)
Other speculation, however, was less restrained. Pat Robertson was among those apparently presuming a Muslim perpetrator, commenting: "Don't talk to me about 'religion of peace,' no way."
The Stupidest Man On The Internet is on the case, noting that an injured Saudi national interviewed by police afterwards was once photographed holding a metal pipe. Not kidding, sadly. Nor is it all. We'll just use TSMOTI here as a case study in the kind of genius that passes for respectable conservative "analysis" nowadays, thus allowing us to skip a bunch of other equally stupid/nasty links I really don't even want to add. As an aside, that Saudi national has now been ruled out as a suspect, not that that will stop anybody. Case in point:
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) says the bombing shows we should slow down immigration reform. Why? Because other people are "speculating" on how it might have been a foreigner:

"Some of the speculation that has come out is that yes, it was a foreign national and, speculating here, that it was potentially a person on a student visa. If that's the case, then we need to take a look at the big picture."

Not the stupidest man around, but probably the single meanest man in Congress, and that is saying something.

All right, that's all I can take. Winners, your only prize is national shame. Please collect it quietly and then go away.
