    Re: Obama Says Boston Bombings an Act of Terrorism.....

    We should all be clear now, following the Benghazi attacks, that Obama plays with words and "an act of terrorism" does not necessarily mean "an act committed by terrorists". Obama referred to the Colorado theatre shooting as "an act of terror", an alternate choice of words as well.

    All of which allows the man, supposedly the most eloquent President ever to live, to obfuscate until such time as his friends in the media save him.

    Now he did not say it exactly right? Again, why is this so important?

    I find myself agreeing with you that it makes no difference what Barrack Obama says.

    The guns we've banned are not the guns used predominately for crime. They are typically perceived as the "deadlier" guns, assault rifles, fully automatics, etc. And because of essentially "size" or aesthetics, they are chosen as the scapegoat for the gun ban movement. Likewise, by pointing to the larger "scarier" pressure cookers and making them the scapegoat, while taking little to no real measure to "police" against the smaller ones actually used in crime, it has become analogous to the gun banners' own arguments of assault rifles and magazine limits.

    Probably because this most eloquent and articulate President in the history of the United States should have a grasp on the facts and some idea of what he is talking about.

    Because it speaks to his patriotism, or lack there of. We are talking about a President that went abroad and stopped just short of calling America evil. We are talking about a President that would rather cover his privates than put his hand over his heart during the national anthem. We are talking about a President that has repeatedly said "I'd like to fundamentally change [America]". So when he hesitates to call terrorism terrorism, I have to wonder....why?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    It's not terribly important now, he won the election last November, but in the lead-up to the election, as evidenced in the debate moderated by Candy Crowley, Obama used his obfuscation to claim he called the Benghazi attacks a terrorist act the morning after when he actually did no such thing and lied on national television in order to save his ass and Crowley and the media gladly wiped it clean for him.

    Many people stopped listening years ago, particularly now that he's totally irrelevant in the aisles of power.
