Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.

Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

Be mad at me if you need to. Feel free to express your moral outrage and indignity at me. But then shut up and focus on convincing people not that the President of the United States duly elected by a majority of the American people is a traitor willfully trying to destroy the country, but that our policies will allow people to make the most of their lives and not be dependent on the rising and falling fortunes of Washington, D.C.

Be happy. The anger is unbecoming of the party of Lincoln and Reagan.

And if you must be angry, don’t be angry at a President doing what he set out to do, be angry at a Republican Establishment not doing ... well ... much of anything.

i'm not of the party that needs to tell people to 'move on'.

one has to wonder how many years it will be before those who are highly selective with what the retain(like Clinton is solely responsible for 9/11, but Bush is not) will no longer have to tell the majority to 'move on'.

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.”

Hysteria-caused by their own minds?

Shrapnel bombs blowing off at a marathon is so FAR from anything being "a delusion in peoples minds" it makes one have to wonder-what the hell PLANET some that would even think such a thing, are living on.

A large majority of adults say the Republican Party is out of touch with average Americans, according to a new poll.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll released on Tuesday found that 70 percent of those surveyed say the GOP is out of touch with “the concerns of most people in the United States today,” while 23 percent say that the party is in touch.

They also say the Democratic Party is out of touch, but by a closer margin of 51 to 43 percent. President Barack Obama is in touch with those concerns, said 51 percent of those surveyed, while 46 percent said that he is not.

As the Senate looks to tackle gun control issues, 55 percent of those surveyed said it is “possible to make gun laws without interfering with gun rights,” while 38 percent said such measures “always interfere with the right to own guns.” Eighty-six percent of those surveyed said they would support background checks conducted on those purchasing guns at gun shows and online.

The survey of 1,003 adults was conducted April 11-14 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percentage points.

Off year for the Yankees. I'm undergoing cataract surgery. Left eye was done last wednesday, right eye scheduled for the 24th. Eye surgeon had an off day last wednesday and put a 2mm scratch in my cornea. It's like sand in your eye and you can't flush it, can't rub it, and can't use anestetic eye drops.

Both grandkids are here today. A new grandson due later this month.

Full weight of justice under Obama???
Domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh was convicted 675 days after the Oklahoma City bombing.
It's been 1258 days since the Fort Hood shootings and Nidal Malik Hasan has not been tried yet?
Is this the justice Obama is talking about?

Boston Marathon bombing: The initial theories

Early reports link twin blasts to right-wing extremists or al-Qa'ida

notice how the two have become linked?

both groups practice the preaching of hate, so it's a very short walk to make the link.
