Invoking the Boston Marathon bombing, President Barack Obama told CNN in an exclusive interview to be broadcast Friday that he can’t “discount” the possibility that a terrorist might target the Winter Olympics Games in Sochi, Russia. Obama also told the news network’s Jake Tapper that he prefers it when American authorities have “full control” over security measures.

If only Hussein had credibility — people might care what he thinks.

How come Baraq, MooseChelle, Malaria and Sharia aren’t heading to Sochi for the winter fun?

They’ve been back from Hawaii for a couple weeks already.

Insinuating danger at Russia’s Olympics because he doesn’t like Putin.

What a bratty child Obama is

Since both Russia and Muslims don’t particularly like homosexuals, maybe we should send a delegation of butch lesbians over ther to poke pointy sticks in their eyes?

That’ll teach ‘em to mess with Obama!

Obama should treat the First Lady to the Games just like he did at the last Winter Olympics. I recall seeing her face splashed on the TV screen much to my dismay. Actually she should be in the Olympics she is good at everything.

I suspect the safest place in Russia will be at the Olympics. With so much security concentrated there, the remainder of the country will be protected by only a cadre and thereby soft targets for the enemies.

I wouldn’t hesitate going. I enjoy summer Olympic sports greatly, and have had the privilege of attending two. But I no longer can travel long distances.

Every cancellation is a victory for radical Islam.

The Boston Marathon was supposed to be safe, no? Shut up, Obama.

His remark will probably cause something to happen in the US just because he said this.

And what type of terrorists threatening the Winter Olympics would those be, Mr. President?

Christian terrorists? Nope.

Jewish terrorists? Nope.

Buddhist terrorists? Nope.

Just the same hard-core religion that it is in every case - Islam - the one that you, Mr. President, vowed to stand with.
