  1. Someone earlier today joked about Obama inviting Adam Scott to the WH but was not too far off. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, sheesh. What next, National Pick-up Sticks champion? In the event, after what happened today in Boston, I think he should cancel.

  2. The last thing the American public wants to see after a day marred by terrorism that caused the death of some of us, and the mutilation or amputation of limbs of others is the President glad-handing a NASCAR driver for whatever wonderful thing he did.

  3. Well we won’t be making any protocol mistakes in England in front of the
    Queen and Prince Phillip at Lady Thatcher’s funeral. Obama is snubbing
    the service no one from his administration is going not even old Joe.
    George Schultz and Baker will be there for us at least they knew her and
    won’t make any errors. The Thatcher family were surprised and saddened. Could this man be any less qualified for office. I guess old
    Michelle’s still mad because she didn’t get a wedding invitation and they
    wouldn’t send her the whole series of Dowton Abbey before it was shown
    here.

    • The Thatcher family should not be saddened or surprised by the ignorance of this White House. Surely the family recognizes small, weak and petty when they see it. Lady Thatcher certainly did. RIP.

      And that sleaze bag Menendez is holding up the congressional tribute to Lady Thatcher.

      The Iron Lady and Sir Winston will have a few things to say about the Obamas I’m sure. Unfortunately for us, they will not be recorded.

        Menedez of the underage-hooker infamy? Whyyyyyyyyyyyy? He’s pro-Argentina?

    • There is NO ONE worthy in this current government (White House, Congress, Federal Depts, etc.) to attend Thatcher’s funeral.

          • Does that rule apply if a Muslim did it? I don’t recall FCMABBHO going to any of the funerals of the people Nidal Hassan killed. Did he and I just don’t remember?

          • He refuses to call that terrorism too, and no one at Fort Hood will receive a Purple Heart for that reason. He doesn’t want to prejudice the trial.

  4. Somehow today’s terrorist bombing makes our national debate on personal gun control issues seem puny and irrelevant. Our political leaders have become so absorbed with controlling the actions of Americans that they appear to have forgotten that billions of people around the world wish us harm and have proven, over and over, that we have no defense against their evil designs.

    We are horrified and outraged that someone could set off explosive devises that kill and maim our people without warning. We forgot that our President sends explosive devices into foreign lands to kill and maim those he fears might harm us in the future or whom he suspects did harm us in the past. There is no doubt that collateral damage is inflicted on others in the vicinity of the target, but we don’t consider that important.
    Well, now we have collateral damage to more than a hundred Americans from a lethal device meant to terrorize us and to punish our President.

    MrObama’s pledge to find and punish the terrorists is hollow and not quite reassuring. Other terrorists captured by this administration have been given civil rights that should only be available to an American citizen, a taxpayer sponsored legal team, and access to our judicial system that mocks us in it’s fairness.

    The loss of life from today’s terrorist attack is not as great as what we endured on 9/11, but the fear and horror we all feel is the same.

      There is no way to compare what happened yesterday to collateral damage in a war zone. Those bombs were meant exclusively to kill civilians. Our ROE in a war zone are designed to minimize the loss of civiilan life.

    • Did he think that he could just use drones with impunity? Did he forget
      9-11 they are patient and will wait to extract their revenge. He’s too busy
      trying to create his little Utopia he forgets the rest of he world and those who hate us don’t care.

  5. How terrible ! And at a sports event in Boston and then the JFK library ?! Is there a message somewhere ? Well, we remember Breivik and his deeds over here.
    I watched Obamas response. Uninspired, hollow, no emotions, no leadership. And that overused phrase ” make no mistake”. I guess that he and his handlers now are trying hard to spin this as effectively as possible but it must be difficult at the moment to combine it with arguments for more gun control and more immigration.

    • swedishlady, I agree with your description of Barry’s little speech. He read most of it, there was no real fire or emotion, no genuine reaction to the horror of the event, or the suffering of the victims. He’s probably annoyed that the Boston bombings will distract attention away from his gun control agenda, or maybe climate change.

  6. Reading the NY media today, I see various accounts of “Obama’s GRIM response” etc etc. I’ll give it 48 hours before we start hearing “the Sequester caused this…..” grumblings. 96 hours before the need for gun control woven into this tragedy. The FBI, ATF, etc will do their jobs while the politicians jockey for position.

    Side note: I’d like to congratulate the Boston Police & Fire Departments, EMTs and hospitals for what looks like a efficient, rapid response. I’m sure lives were saved by these brave men & women.

    • Otis Driftwood posted a link to Brietbart about blaming the sequester last night around 10:30.

      I cannot imagine how even the most skilled rhetorician could link guns with what happened yesterday. But, what do I know? I never imagined a Commie could get elected to the White House the first time, let alone the second time.

  7. “12:30 pm || Holds a working lunch with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates!!!!!!!” What in the hell would they be working on? Name one issue with the United Arab Emirates that comes to mind that needs to be worked on during a lunch? Work is a four letter word to Dictator Obama. Look at that schedule. Can’t be more that a 4 hour day at most. My guess is he works part time to make sure he doesn’t pay the Obamacare fines and insurance requirements.

  8. He really cares… each time I see him and when he speaks to us. You can see how American he is and how much he cares for our country. NOT!
