Silence Will Ensue

President Obama Looking SadNow that the terrorists who committed the April 15th bombings at the Boston Marathon have turned out to be Chechen, Muslim immigrants, it’s pretty safe to say that Obama and his various proxies at the White House won’t have anything else substantive to say on the circumstances. Silence will ensue, except for, possibly, some vague promises of increased security, calls for “understanding,” and some form of apology on behalf of America to the Muslim World for our, once again, goading their spawn to violence.

I can’t see where the Campaigner-in-Chief or his handlers and overseers are going to want to talk much about Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev since, not only are they immigrants, they’re Muslims and, while racially Caucasian, are honorarily Brown People. To say anything meaningful that was even slightly honest would interfere with- and undermine Obama’s current primary task of trying to make House Republicans look bad.

Yes, I’m willing to bet money that Obama and his coterie are royally pissed and disappointed that the terrorists didn’t turn out to be natural born, White, Tea Party-esq Americans. If they had been this would have been a crisis and tragedy that Obama could have continued to make use of.

    Okay jonolan, here’s just one statement – from last night:

    “Obviously, tonight there are still many unanswered questions. Among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here, as part of our communities and our country, resort to such violence? How did they plan and carry out these attacks, and did they receive any help?

    And so I’ve instructed the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security and our intelligence community to continue to deploy all the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence . . .We will investigate any associations that these terrorists may have had. And we’ll continue to do whatever we have to do to keep our people safe.

    One thing we do know is that whatever hateful agenda drove these men to such heinous acts will not — cannot — prevail. Whatever they thought they could ultimately achieve, they’ve already failed”

    “We will determine what happened. We will investigate any associations that these terrorists may have had.”

    He basically said the same thing every time he made a statement although in the first instances he stayed away from characterizing them because it would have been irresponsible until more was known. And also, we absolutely can’t call it terrorism because that has a specific meaning: violence in the service of a political message. The crazy kid in Tusccon was not a terrorist. And in Boston,, we didn’t know until we knew.

    Of course you can go ahead and simply say that he didn’t mean what he said to which there really isn’t any answer.

    I don’t really consider the long-winded equivalent of “we’ll look into it,” to be a substantive statement, Moe, though at this particular time that’s the only statement he could make so I won’t, again at this time, fault him much for it.

    I find it interesting that the left can’t get off their prescribed March-April talking points. They’re still trying to twist and bend this into a gun control and anti-NRA spin. It’s anti-Terror efforts are a holding ground game only now. You can never really solve a problem if your unwilling to address the core issue at hand because it’s unpleasant or unpopular.

  4. jonolan Says:

    It’s not hard to explain. One, they have nothing else that can say other their prescribed March-April talking points. Two, they hope that they can change the dialog and/or shore up support among their fellow travelers.

    President Obama said after the killing and capture of the terrorists, ” That’s why we relentlessly gather the facts. That’s why we have courts, and that’s why we take care not to rush to judgment, not about the motivations of these individuals, certainly not about entire groups of people. ”

    Oh yea, but didn’t he rush to judgment when he assumed something and said the Cambridge Police acted stupidly in the 2009 Professor Gates arrest? Which of course lead to the famous beer summit. Or infamous because the beers served were all made by foreign owned companies. Can’t even help out domestic brewers.

    Then he managed to jump in feet first into the Trayvon Martin case when he said ” If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon. ”

    Do as I say, not as I do.

  6. jonolan Says:

    Obama doesn’t so much rush to judgement as rush to being judgmental and all or most of his judgement are race-based as anyone must expect from him.
