    • Have I mentioned how much I hate this current resident of the White House ??? Muslim lover much ?
      Wait ….is that black ( racist, right ? ) helicopters I hear ? Nope…they would have a hard time finding this place with GPS and dogs.

    • Yes, after he, through Axelrod and others, basically accused the Tea Party because it was tax day. Or, how about Trayvon Martin. No, no rush to judgment.

  1. I thought it odd that the President ended his comments with the last phrase in the pledge of allegiance “and justice for all.” For who? Strangely, it somehow felt like he was referring to justice for the bombers.

  2. Nice to know he’s sticking with his claim that one of his duties as president is “to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear”!

  3. Once again, his affect is odd and detached. He doesn’t seem to get it that it wasn’t Boston, or the marathon runners, or those watching the race who were attacked, it was the USA. All of us were attacked, threatened by crazy Muslims who live to harm and kill anyone who is not like them.

    A crazed criminal was wandering around Watertown armed to the teeth and all the homeowners had was hope that the police could catch him before he killed again. They were defenseless in their homes, hiding under the bed.

    • Barry does not want to admit that his war on Al Qaeda is a bust and that these terrorists are MUSLIM jihadists. radical Islam is the problem you dopehead Obama.

      meanwhile, King Narcissus has been partying, vacationing, and golfing while leaving average Americans vulnerable.

      Obama is an insufferable, incompetent moron.

  4. here’s a speech:

    “two perpetrators of evil have been stopped.

    we will do all we can going forward to never let the enemy cow us into submission and fear no matter what their color or religion, those who kill or make Americans live in fear will be dealt with swiftly and mercilessly”

  5. I love this on NRO. An Answer to Liberals’ Prayers by Kevin D. Williamson:

    Who says prayers are not answered. David Sirota led the Liberal Tabernacle Choir in beseeching the Almighty that the Boston bombers should turn out to be a coupe of white guys, and, lo and behold, we end up with a couple of literal Caucasians.

    And one of our peers here on WHD wrote this morning while the massive manhunt was ongoing that maybe that was what Obama meant when he said that he had the terrorists on the run.

    • All the public funding of NRO and Sirota didn’t have access to any historically references to Bosnia-Hercegovina !

      He could have checked with Hillary, who “under sniper fire” could have provided him her first-hand account. sarc off/

  6. Another lacklustre performance from the President. He looked, as srdem65 wrote, oddly detached. ” Not rush to judgements……entire groups of people…” Well, he is lauding “the American people” for this and that , but obviously he feels that it is necessary to emphasize the protection of a certain group, we all understand which one, anyway.
    First, I would like to pay homage to the law enforcement professionals . Excellent job ! Then I must say that it is extremely worrying that the Jihad again raises it´s ugly head in the West. There are many examples of seemingly well adjusted Muslims who suddenly become killing machines. We had a suicide bomber in Stockholm 2010, Abdulwahab, born in Iraq, living in Sweden for many years before going to Luton, Britain, were he was radicalized . He went back equipped with a suicidevest to this country that had treated him so generously. Fortunately, he failed and was the only one dead in that mission. And we have the seemingly well adjusted young Muslims from Yorkshire, Britain, who came to hate their new country so much that they went on a suicide mission that killed 50 people 2005. We have many, many Muslims in Europe and we often debate the assimilation problems even if the politicians and the media are very reluctant to do it. That´s one of the reasons Nationalist parties are on the rise in Europe. I believe that the events in Boston have weakened this President and his agenda. By the way, what happened with the “Ground Zero Mosque” in New York ? I remember that Obama supported the plans.

  7. Remember Ft. Hood massacre and Benghazi – wonder what will be done with this terrorist? Couldn’t even watch Obama who acted like it was his actions that brought an end to this tragedy. Sickening.

    • I think this attack has a higher profile, and easier access to to MFM and the public, due to the fact that it took place not on foreign soil or on federal property.

  8. Allen West’s Facebook posting from F/4/19:

    Allen West
    Let me be very clear, the terrorist attack in Boston and evolving events indicate we have a domestic radical Islamic terror problem in America. We must no longer allow the disciples of political correctness and the acolytes of the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, MAS) to preach to us some misconceived definition of tolerance and subservience. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. Carlos Bledsoe in Little Rock, MAJ Hasan in Ft Hood, the Ft Dix Six, Faisal Shahazad in NYC Times Square — these are just the examples I can type now. When Rep Peter King attempted to have hearings on domestic terrorism he was attacked for being racist. No more excuses. No more apologies. We are in a war of ideological wills, and we shall prevail. Congratulations to all the law enforcement agencies.

  9. From Howie Carr, Bostonherald.com:
    “…We bring in thousands of Muslims from a primitive society that has been battling Christians for centuries, and put them into a peaceful Christian society — what could possible go wrong?

    This is what I was thinking about yesterday, with much of the city under what amounted to martial law. Once more, law-abiding American citizens were paying the price for the insane immigration policies that have so damaged this society in recent years.

    You can see the decay everywhere — in the emergency rooms, in the courts, in the welfare offices and, yes, in the epidemic of senseless murders. The only difference this time was one of the bloodthirsty fiends was actually a naturalized U.S. citizen….”

    • Thanks for indulging me.
      AND he forgot the schools. When the o isn’t borrowing/spending us into debt forever, the immigration polices are finishing the job, bankrupting us.

    • Sport, thanks for that info. The last paragraph of Carr’s article made me curious about the death penalty in Massachusetts. I’m stunned to learn there is none. So this bomber/terrorist will receive 3 hots and a cot for the rest of his life, courtesy of the taxpayer. I assume federal law will prevail but then to assume anything with this current admin is foolish.

  10. Obama aside, here is a snippet that might makes us feel good.

    “But after the capture, celebratory bells rang from a church tower. Crowds lined the streets into the center of town. Teenagers waved American flags. Every car that drove by honked. Every time an emergency vehicle went by, people cheered loudly.”

    Church bells, teenagers waving American flags, honking cars, cheering people…who would have thunk it? No matter for what reason or for how long I’ll take it. And oh yeah, it was an AP article.

  11. The backslapping last night was sickening. The only guy not put in front of the cameras was the janitor from the courthouse.

    No miranda? That’s disturbing, but I’d like to see how it plays out. I’m very leary of giving up someone’s civil rights (even terrorists) for the “greater good.” How could I say that? Well, you never know when posting on a blog like this might get you labeled a subversive and subject to a national security exemption. The government has a long history of abusing people’s civil rights when given latitude, especially in the name of security… just ask all the Germans and Japanese during WW2.

    The government has already failed to protect us from these two. Why should we give them any more power for next time? I can’t wait to see if the stories of how the older brother should have been deported for a criminal conviction… why he was questioned by the FBI for extremist links… why he left the country for 6 months… get buried by the media and the regime.

    • I must be an old prune but all the hoopla on Boston Common by young people who were probably rounded up by the media leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Yes, we should be glad that this bad egg was captured and his brother dead. But this was a serious act of terror: a boy of eight, two young women and a policeman all in their twenties killed and nearly two hundred adults and children injured, some losing both limbs. It was not an NCAA championship win, and I wonder how the families of all the dead and harmed feel about that celebration.

    • The missing Miranda is disturbing because I have already read that Obama would like him tried in the civil courts instead of as an enemy combatant. The absence of a Miranda reading could affect the outcome of a civil trial. But I hope Obama doesn’t get his way on that.

      • I don’t know for myself yet. But this is just a seed of a thought — if he is treated as an enemy combatant (which bothers me not) — how does that affect that drone and Americans on American soil issue — perhaps not at all. But this is Obama’s Amerika and I don’t put anything past this Administration when it comes to restricting the civil liberties and constitutional rights of Americans.
        Guiliani says enemy combatant. I tend to agree. Maybe if we start treating all terrorists as enemy combatants ( !) there would be less or fewer domestic terrorists. Just sayin’

        • We’re going to be getting into murky territory with this case. I’m wondering if law enforcement had to read his Miranda rights to him immediately. There was no questioning. Once he has recovered, can they read him his Miranda rights then before they start questioning him? Any lawyers on board?

  12. I liked the police chief’s praise of bystanders–detailed, heartfelt, people putting out fires and plugging arteries with their hands. RealIy moved me. All the word salad from the president–been there. The WashPost this AM was all about those two in the violence of the Caucasus–well, go fight there then! And it still bugs me that they got scholarships and went to such good schools when so many American students are wanting. Oh, well, we can’t write a script and get people to read it in real life. That Dr Ablow person was already blatting on this AM about what radicalizes people–sometimes mental illness. Oh, don’t EVEN!

  13. I’m with Rick. Couldn’t watch him try to grab the spotlight last night. After watching his speech this morning, I have to agree with srdem. He seemed very detached, like he was reading a list of bullet points written by the snl writers he employs. He also appears to be the only one around who doesn’t seem to know what motivated these legal immigrants from the muslim culture of Chechnya. All one has to do is look at the social media accounts of the oldest terrorist to see what motivated them – Islamic radicalism. That’s probably the reason for Obama’s slam at social media last night. That, and the younger terrorist appears to be an Obama follower. He followed him on Twitter and retweeted Obama’s post election message to his followers on Nov 6th.

    Maybe this attack on America will be a wakeup call for us, and will change the current direction of investigating radicalism. Instead of haranguing Americans who have opposing political beliefs from the current president, maybe the authorities will start looking toward the enemies we are importing from countries that hate US.

    • Susan, I agree with you about the wakeup call aspect of this horrible event. We Americans have an attention span not unlike a gnat and we do need a kick in the pants now and then. I just wish death, dismemberment and trauma were not part of said kick.

      The lawyers will have a field day with this. I was unaware of a Miranda exception when the public safety is threatened (Wouldn’t an armed robber, rapist, etc qualify??) but I will yield to more informed people. This “thing” is an American citizen and performed these acts of terror on American soil so I fail to see the “combatant” link. All I can say is that Holder’s Justice Department will screw up the prosecution royally. Lets hope the interrogators get as much information as they can from this “thing” and then let the prison population handle the sentencing. Thats one thing they are good at.

      • I am not a lawyer, don’t play you know where, but it seems logical to me that this is in an immediate danger to the public area–don’t get lawyers involved if you want to know where the second bomb is or something…time sensitive. Hardly the case here. Or at least I hope not.

      • Re the enemy combatant link, check out the inside pages of a US Passport and loss of US citizenship. Amoung other things, taking an oath or making a declaration to a foreign state or serving in the armed forces of a foreign state. To me attacking the US in accordance or support from foreign entities is sufficient.

  14. People, I really feel like there is soooo many wrongs with how we handled this and what is to come from it. The last time I felt this bad for our country was when Bush said we were going to war… I knew nothing good would come from it and this will be the same.
