Boston: Fact and Spin UPDATED

Obama opened the doors to Saudis.

January 11, 2013, NationalVisas via Ann Barnhardt:
Saudi Arabian nationals will experience better chances of traveling to America and getting their American visa. This is as a result of US President Barack Obama having lifted most of the restrictions of Saudis entering the country.
That is the fact.

Here is the spin:
It was a video that triggered the Boston bombings.

It was workplace violence.

America can do better.

Turn in your guns.

It is Bush's fault.

_________ (Fill in the blank)

President Obama has avoided responsibility.  His.  Entire.  Life.  

What makes you think he'll take responsibility for his skewed security priorities now?

And as for the many DHS affirmative action employees making over $100k a year to protect the nation from attacks like we saw in Boston?  Never mind that they failed completely today.

Homeland Security won't fail to fill out their expense reports in Boston.  They won't fail to find fault with other agencies or a 'pervasive right-wing influence'.  And they certainly won't fail to record every minute of overtime in the coming days.

They'll keep their jobs, and they will continue to pursue the easy threats - the law abiding citizens who happen to own guns, raise families, share their love of country on the web, and criticize that which deserves to be criticized.

A quote from The Investigative Project on Terrorism from last month, via Doug:
Saudi Arabia sends thousands of travelers into the United States each month, and more than 92 percent of Saudis who seek entry visas receive them, Asharq al-Awsat reported. In 2012, 20,677 student visas were granted to Saudi citizens.

UPDATED 4.16 10:30am:

Drudge links to the spin in this Weekly Standard article (with video):
"The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11," Axelrod said of the phrase "terrorist attack."

"You use those words and it means something very specific in people's mind. And I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day. Was it someone who was pro--you know, you just don't know. And so I think his attitude is, let's not put any inference into this, let's just make clear that we're going to get the people responsible."
"Pro" what, asshole?

A pro-life person tried to kill people?  Pro-Constitution?  Pro Progressive Tax?  Pro-Bomb?  Probably Pro-Gun, right?

When a Liberal Progressive Communist says they's "get the people responsible," what he means is they will NOT hold anyone in the government responsible.

Remember, intentions are what counts with these people.

Our next prediction: DHS and Obama will try to absorb the high and worthy praise we and others are heaping onto the Boston PD and EMS responders and on the public who helped the victims.  Nothing will be said about the pre-bombing f**k ups that occurred or the government's role to prevent attacks.  The only praise we have of Homeland Security at this point is the guy who cut cell communications to prevent cell-triggered bombs.  Somebody was at the switch.

We shudder to think of the laws that will be passed after this event.

The solution to this type of crime is to post an undercover TSA loser next to each trash can.  They can feel up every piece of trash to ensure our safety.

Thanks IOTW for the link!

death and destruction returned to Obama!
(from those who suffer this scenario every week)

Whilst i am very saddnened to hear of the deaths in Boston yesterday because of yet another attack. I will quote President Obama when making his case to have drone strikes legal upon any place in any part of the World at any time! Your President Obama kills many innocent children on a daily basis in other parts of the World and yet nothing is said because President Obama says; Deaths of civillians will happen as they are "collateral damage" please understand I'am not being disrespectful to those that have been killed nor those that still may die because of the injuries they have recieved and i am deeply sorry that this has happened however, we must now try to understand why? if I recall just before these two explosions OBAMA dropped a bomb shell on the American public did he not? with a range of NEW Taxes designed to inflict further punishment upon everyday working Americans the subject was getting very heated when all of a sudden there is now a diversion? from the Obama's Tax increases? mmm, Ok lets say this was not special ops job, lets say this was in fact a bombing from terrorists either from outside or inside America you still have to ask WHY? Pres OBAMA kills innocent women and children through drone attacks every week and you America allow him to do so the destruction, heart ache and dispair Obama causees other people may well have come back to wake the American people up. Dont you think that others in the World are affected by "drone attacks" that create the loss of many young and innocent lives and now because Obama has some of his handy work come back at him he vows to get those responsible? just a bit of a hypocrite dont you think?

I would like real Americans to now speak out against the un-necessary deaths caused in other countries by Pres OBAMA with his drone attacks anywhere, at anyone and at anytime! Let your voices be heard America enough is enough and this madness must stop NOW! the American people can demand Pres OBAMA stand down as his policies have brought on this attack so that you the American people begin to understand what is happening in other parts of the World because of your drone attacks! innocent lives are lost every day!

Obviously the ball was dropped. The bombing is significant as it was allowed to happen! As Homeland security shifted their emphasis and focus upon the law abiding citizens of this country the FBI investigating the Occupy movement and Obama top secret plan to wage all out warfare upon the law abiding gun owning American public those that our forefathers would be most proud of.... this can only be described by the age old "Nero Fiddled while Rome Burned" adage ! Can this shift in focus be explained by the picture of Obama bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia? While arming the drug cartels Al Quaida in Syria and Libya and who knows where else it is as though he efforts to weaken and disarm the American people but secretly promoting the onward march of Islam thru out the world? Nevertheless heads should roll Janet Napolitano did not prevent this attack. Surly the finish line should have been protected. Homeland security turning against the public vilifying the law abiding an Orwellian police State titled agency as sure to be used against Americans despite their stated purpose is an apt example of the selfish power driven as are the president efforts themselves to criminalize previously widely accepted and practiced law abiding activities ! Have we forgotten what the word Freedom even means?? People talk about it sing about it potificate about it but forget the meaning Doesnt it mean freedom from government intrusion upon their private affairs . This is what our forefathers intended not that we be left open to attack from our enemies because of an administration preoccupied with disarming and criminalizing its law abiding citizens.

I agree HDTV and have for sometime wondered why there is no outrage in our country. Drone attacks save our military forces which are short handed but they are still killing. I have no warfare data, but I can only imagine that they are as accurate as the operator himeself. What if someone tells him wrong? But then considering Obama's take on abortion alone, why would drone attacks not receive the same attitude. I fear for our country as we get further and further from our founding fathers beliefs. As we distance ourselves more and more from each other and God, as a nation we begin to fail. I do not support the drone attacks anywhere without a declaration of war approved by the Senate and Congress. Reality is, it is war, just because on our end only the operator is human, on the other end are human beings and not just the bad guy. My prayers got out to those in Boston. I prayer that at some point there is peace in their souls but it is doubtful. God Bless and it would be really nice if the whole world would wake up, way too many innocent people are dying.
