    I don't see the President's job as being Reporter-in-Chief; I see him as Uniter-in-Chief.

    Says authorities were there with bomb sniffing dogs, and announcing it was a drill. No doubt this will be made into CT fodder, but it's interesting for what it is.

    He didn't say much. I doubt they know much.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If memory serves me Harris and Klebold used propane cannisters rigged to blow, but didn't oxygenate it properly or something so they didn't get ignition, that's off memory though. OKC was a fertilizer/diesel bomb.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Some of us are adults and can handle the real world.

    Your not suppose to remember that guy. It happened on Obama's watch just like the terrorist attack at Fort Hood.

    The Obama administration says because the kicker charge on the underwear bomb failed to set off the main charge, there was no terrorist attack.

    Obama has to use the situation to up-sell UHC before the blood dries.

    It wasn't long, less than 3 mins.....and he reiterated that all was in the Investigative Stage and that as they got Info they would give it to the press. Condolences and Grads to first responders.

    Guess I was right, didn't take long for the head CT in charge to jump on that one.
