Barack Obama, our next President

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.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) cautioned reporters on Tuesday that it would be wrong to connect the immigration reform debate to the Boston bombing given the lack of available information about what happened. Earlier the same day, immigration reform opponent Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suggested legislation should be delayed just in case the bombing is linked to a foreign suspect.

“We should really be very cautious about using language that links these two things in any way,” Rubio told reporters, according to The Daily Caller.“We know very little about Boston other than that it was obviously an act of terror. We don’t know who carried it out or why they carried it out, and I would caution everyone to be very careful about linking the two.”

What about Benghazi dummy? Where are the survivors, there were supposedly 27 Americans airlifted from Benghazi airport, why can't John McCain or Lindsey Graham get a subpoena and make them suckas talk. Hilary said that her State Department lost two people in that attack__the ambassador and the data guy Smith.

Two is not four__who was paying the other two, the ones who died defending the CIA compound__could they have possibly been CIA operatives? What were they doing there and how long had they been in Libya? Why don't we know why the ambassador was in Benghazi over 300 miles from the US embassy in Tripoli? Why didn't the public get to see Petreaus testify?

Stooge!

Listen Mighty Dumb Builder, you blamed Obama for the security issues in Boston during a local event.
I guess if you stubbed your toe, you would blame Obama.
Try blaming Obama for something he did for a change.
Boston Marathon ... a local event? My god, you have such a small world you live in, dimwit!

People from around the world come here to run in the Boston Marathon. It is one of many global sporting events. THere were film crews from around the world present for the event which then quickly became a terrorist news event instead.

Wake up, little boy.

I see Eed is still defending the use of racial slurs.

Yet another example of the ridiculous right who now stoops to defending the use of these racial slurs.

My God, just how stupid are you people?

Calling a black man boy is a racial; sur.

You know it.

I know you know it.

So why post it?

And better yet, why are you defending it?

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.
You right whiners are so predictable.
ImaginaryDave, YOU are predictable. As predictable as a monkey with a banana. As predictable as a junkie with heroin. As predictable as a Liberal Progressive Ultra Left Wing Socialist Democrat with tax revenues. As predictable as a Fool and his money.

As predictable as a liar in his disregard for the truth.

I get it,. George W Bush took 3 years before he called Bin Laden irrelevant and never did get him after invading a country in the longest war in our history. Here you are bitching about 8 months.

Just like after Benghazi, you f*cking idiots are having a fit because President Obama did run screaming " Terrorist Attack" up & down the street within 5 minutes.

This demonstrates just how GD ridiculous you & your ilk have become.

My God you people are stupid.

Most sports stadiums do not allow backpacks at major events.
