The moron is likely caniving to take guns from law abiding patriots while ignoring terrorists running around with bombs!
So what's he supposed to be doing Waxman, riding through Boston in a Humvee in full swat gear literally physically looking for the bomber himself? He gave a speech already. There's nothing else to talk about until he has full Intel of the situation & something worth telling the people!

Talk about nonsense. He lowered nothing. He could have prevented nothing. No one could have.

A breakdown in communications between the FBI and CIA was cited by the 9/11 Commission Report as one of the major lapses in preventing 9/11. Clinton was responsible for that breakdown in trying to cover up another possible scandal involving donations from the Chinese.

So please shut it. Either that or explain why Obama couldn't prevent Benghazi or today's attack even after Bush restored those crucial lines of communication.

He actually did make a comment to the press on the attack today. If we weren't living in the Land of Oz, it would have been more credible and easier to believe.

But "getting to the bottom" of anything by this administration has lost any meaning.

I'm not blaming Obama for the attack. I blame Obama for just being Obama. We need a leader - not a reader.

For those who pray, say a prayer for Bostonians and for our nation and this ever increasing unstable world in which we live.

God help us and give us the strength to endure whatever comes our way. We can't do it alone.

Look it up yourself. Bush was warned numerous times by both the CIA & FBI, & his response was,"okay, you've covered your ass now. He was warn only 5 days before the"attacks" actually happened. The FBI & CIA both warned him, yet you claim he had no warnings. Both agencies tracked those same terrorist for weeks informing the white house of the pending attacks. Even to the point that they also included airplane hijackings & all. Bush ignored all the warnings & y'all see the outcome. It's no way anyone couldn't stopped it! What are y'all talking about? All he had to do was raise the level of security at the airports, he did nothing! Now y'all want to act like y'all don't know this stuff. The man wasn't only incompetent, but dumb as the say is long. I'm willing to bet he came up with the no child left behind act, because his Daddy & grand Daddy pushed his retarded ass through school. I can't believe y'all are defending his incompetence. He was literally that empty chair on stage with Clint Eastwood!

He led us out of Bush's recession, out of Iraq, through the deaths of the top 10 Al Qaeda leaders, into Pakistan to get Bin Laden, stock markets breaking records, equal rights for woman in the work place as far as pay, universal healthcare, & plenty more. All with republican obstruction from day 1 of his presidency. Let me guess, you voted for Romney huh! Give NE list of Bush's accomplishments. There are none!

Supreme Court Declines Gun Law Case

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court said Monday that it would not weigh in on a major Second Amendment question that has divided the lower courts: May states bar or strictly limit the carrying of guns in public for self-defense?
The justices turned down a case concerning a New York State law that requires people seeking permits for carrying guns in public to demonstrate that they have a special need for self-protection. In urging the justices to hear the case, the National Rifle Association called the law “a de facto ban on carrying a handgun outside the home.”

War Zone at Mile 26:‘So Many People Without Legs’

BOSTON —...
“These runners just finished and they don’t have legs now,” said Roupen Bastajian, 35, a Rhode Island state trooper and former Marine.“So many of them. There are so many people without legs. It’s all blood. There’s blood everywhere. You got bones, fragments. It’s disgusting.”

Well congrats to all you white people who voted for obama in some misguided attempt at race relations. Now we know ever black person capablevof voting chose obama. When the president crys on tv every other week other countries take notice and feel more likely to pull off an attack on us. A strong president can send a message to all leaders. Mess with us and get vaporized. Obama sending message of hey brother lets share iced teas a play basketball.

Obama's the racist, you're the idiot, and everyone who voted for this caramel clown is an embarrassment, not only to America but to our allies. The only people applauding Obama are Islamists and welfare junkies. Oh, and let's not forget butcher-shop abortionists and the women who go there.

The administration is proposing to extend a freeze on the income brackets at which seniors are liable for the higher premiums until 1 in 4 retirees has to pay. It wouldn't be the top 5 percent anymore, but the top 25 percent.
"Over time, the higher premiums will affect people who by today's standards are considered middle-income," explained Tricia Neuman, vice president for Medicare policy at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. "At some point, it raises questions about whether Medicare premiums will continue to be affordable."

It's much more astonishing to me that the left is so astonished Obamacare is a disaster.
It will be this president's legacy.
We know that reading comprehension isn't your strong suit Carol and you have a penchant for picking points that would tend to validate your views so it's not surprising that you missed this little gem in the article you cited;
"Fiscal conservatives say it makes no sense for government to provide the same generous subsidies to people who can afford to pay at least some of the cost themselves. As a rule, taxpayers pay for 75 percent of Medicare's outpatient and prescription benefits. Even millionaires would still get a 10 percent subsidy on their premiums under Obama's plan. Technically, both programs are voluntary."
Are you carrying the liberal flag these days Carol?
