Man, when you progressives are wrong you are really wrong....There are an average of 44 murders per day in the United States (by far the highest in the developed world). Everyone of them is a tragedy. Do you want the president to address the nation for each and every one of them? We kill each other in this country at quite a rate. Hell more people die from murder in any given year in this country then terrorists would killed in at least a couple of centuries.
"Washington (CNN) – As terrorism increasingly becomes a tactic of warfare, the number of attacks and fatalities soared to a record high in 2012, according to a new report obtained exclusively by CNN.
More than 8,500 terrorist attacks killed nearly 15,500 people last year as violence tore through Africa, Asia and the Middle East, according to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism."

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: How People Are Murdered in the United States
Now by looking at this even though the numbers are 2012 for terrorism, and 2010 for murders, they represent the latest numbers out by these organizations, and even comparable in amount. But, the number of terrorist killings in the world at this point in time outweighs the number of homicides in the US. So we can conclude about your statement here that either you pulled the number out of your arse, or are just plain out lying about it in order to diminish the state of war Obama has us in today, against the enemy that has called for exactly this scenario to occur. Either way, it is a bogus argument.
