    Excuse me but that's kind-of a racist thing to say. What we need is to have a national discussion on the issue.

    Obama started his political career in the home of a couple just like the Boston Bomber

    Neither can missiles or howitzers but that doesn't stop anti-gun'tards from bringing those up.

    And most banned guns weren't used in the commission of crimes. So we're right on.

    I am saddened and sickened by the fact that these people will not just think of the children!

    Not really, and not even close.....since it does not specifically relate just to the ME. With India and Pakistan being up in the Mix.

    Similar pressure-cooker explosives have been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to a July 2010 intelligence report by the FBI and Homeland Security. Also, one of the three devices used in the May 2010 Times Square attempted bombing was a pressure cooker, the report said.....snip~

    So what you're saying is Obama should support the UN Culinary Treaty and help enforce international common-sense pressure-cooker regulations?

    After all, terrorists can't make these bombs if they can't get pressure-cookers....

    It is doubtful that that idea came into play in the timing of the announcement. Even then, what difference would it make waiting to call it a terrorist act? He called it a terrorist act today. A rush to judgement was not necessary yesterday. It was not needed. In fact, with television networks flogging the tragedy for every goddam ounce of viewership they can get, it was a good decision on the part of the White House to let things settle a bit.

    What difference does it make in the scheme of things to Joe and Jane Sixpack? Sure political partisan dickwits are going to try to play "Gotcha!" with exactly what Obama said, exactly when Obama said it, and exactly how Obama was sitting in the Oval Office when he was being briefed. NONE of that matters except to partisan pukes, most who have the brains of a large rabbit.
