Mayor: Times Square Suspect Acted Alone
CBS ^ | 5/3/10

Posted on 05/03/2010 7:31:37 PM PDT by Kartographer

Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone.

"If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything," he said.

I suggest that the only mentally deranged person I have seen evidence of in connection to this case is Hizhonor!

Only 25 cents.

Sounds like he knew he was mumbling out his butt.

Using the mayor’s illogic, it could have been him who did the dastardly deed. What a macaroon he is.

If the Pakistan connection pans out, then it appears he was wrong on all counts.

“Salt Shaker” Mike is clueless. Isn’t there a crystal ball somewhere that needs dropping? I know it’s not New Year’s yet but Mikey really needs to find something useful to do with himself.

You can watch NYC Mayor Bloomberg state his opinions on CBS National News with Katie Couric here.

He could also be a Klingon agent working on behalf of the Romulan empire. I have no proof, but then neither does he so....

must be one of the Pakistani Christian tea party members that we’re always hearing about. He’s probably pissed off about our slow progress over there in Afghanistan.

Just another reason the people of New York were glad to have Rudy as their Mayor. He at least got it when it came to terrorists and knew you don’t soft peddle what the enemy does especially when you see the aftermath and have to deal with it.

What ever happened to public officials shutting the hell up and letting the professionals complete their investigation? Mayor, STFU until all the evidence has been reviewed and the investigation is complete! Then ask the professionals what they would like you to say, so you do not damage their prosecution! What a pompous jackass this guy is!

There is NO WAY this Times Square Bomber could be anything other than a straight, white, Christian male anti-government teabagger!!!

No other classification of human is as dangerous and as stupid and intolerant and bigoted and racist and sexist and homophobic!!!

The world would be a perfect, crime free, idyllic progressive paradise with without the awful straight, white, Christian males ruining it for everyone and everything!!!

And since we don't know, we will blame every conservative we can. The thought of looking overseas never occurred to Mr. Bloomers.

What you said only happens when conservatives are in power. Liberals want to run everyone's life, and have something to say about everything. They are the masters of "Words without wisdom."

They seem to be oblivious to the fact that it may be a mooslim enraged by a cartoon.

"There is no evidence here of a conspiracy, there is no evidence that it's tied into anything else. It looks like an amateurish job done by at least one person," he told Couric.

Yes Katie, using my formidable mental acumen I deduce that at least one person was involved.

An archaeological team, digging in New York City, has uncovered 10,000 year old bones and fossil remains. Experts are unable to determine if they are of past Mayor Bloomberg, or of SeeBS News gender diversity Anchorette clown Katie Couric.

It was a white guy named Whitey, who owns a white van, and is known to wear a White Sox’s hats and white T-shirts.

Be on the look out.

Funny, but no one uses the word, Terrorist, Islamic, Fanatical, Jihadist. They really would like to tie this all to some right wing group. I hope MSM wakes up before it’s too late. I’m afraid we’ve already lost as no one wants to aknowledge we have an Enemy, and it isn’t a religion of PEACE. WHERE Is the outcry of CAIR? Come on now, Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright? Is this more of your God D. America?

Not everybody in NY is brain-dead...

"We're at war with Islam.
"We're gonna be at war for the next 30 years; we're afraid to call them muslim islamic terrorists. We'll call them anything but --because we don't want to alienate muslim countries.

"That's ridiculous!

"Of course the vast majority of muslims --there are a billion, four hundred million -- are not terrorists, but there are hundreds of millions who are!

They want to kill every Christian, every Jew, every Hindu who won't convert.
And we ought to put that on the table.

When a terrorist drops a NYC skyscraper on his head ... or when he's voted out of office.

Bloomberg shows why America is doomed. As long as we refuse to even name the enemy, he will defeat us. While chuckling, which is an added bonus.

Political correctness is the death of America.
