Obama: 'We've Closed An Important Chapter In This Tragedy'
President Obama addresses the apprehension of a suspected bomber, and the tragedies in both Boston and West, Texas. By Michael O'Brien.
The nation has "closed an important chapter" in its response to a terrorist attack on Monday, President Barack Obama said Friday evening at the White House, capping what the president called a "tough week" that captured much of the nation's attention.
After a day of anxious waiting that played out live on national television and in social media, police apprehended Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the second, remaining suspect in Monday's bombing of the Boston Marathon alive following a daylong manhunt that shut down much of the Boston metro area. (snip) The president warned against any rush to judgment. "When a tragedy like this happens
it's important that we do this right. That's why we have investigations. That's why we relentlessly gather the facts. That's why we have courts," he said. "That's why we take care not to rush to judgment -- not about motivations of individuals, certainly not about entire groups of people."

Your post is worth repeating, so I am:
“That’s why we take care not to rush to judgment — not about motivations of individuals, certainly not about entire groups of people.”
He should write that on a Hallmark card and send it to George Zimmerman.
and how his injuries consisted of burned hands
You wrote: Had they deported him aka enforcing our existing laws, Boston would not have happened. And because a foreign country made an inquiry, I have to believe that he was on a list and they’re lying through their teeth.
Well let’s cut them a break. It isn’t as if we’re spending billions a year on overblown agencies to keep us safe. We musn’t profile. We musn’t accuse anyone of anything until they actually blow some of us up. Now move along with eyes closed, and be sure to take off your shoes and get scanned and probed at the airport like a good little subject. It’s keeping us safer; I’m sure it is, because they say so.
Not sure from his tweets but it sounds like the one they caught was glad 0bama won last year. Can you imagine the media reaction if these perpetrators expressed support for Paul, or Palin, or anyone on the American right??
Obama looked disinterested and quite frankly peeved that he had to speak to this issue. His facial expressions at the end of his charade were disturbing.
Notice how he doesn’t condemn the murders. He NEVER does anything that would annoy his buddies.
When the ROP kills Christians, he’s silent. When a Christian insults his buddies, he’s outraged.
This only means The Won is in full damage control mode. The Islamic brand has suffered a major setback with the revelation that the perps represented major players in the struggle for dominance and the establishment of the Worldwide Caliphate, now being played out in Syria and under the Muslim Brotherhood. It is rather curious as to why this struggle was taken to the Boston Marathon, but score easy targets where you can, one would suppose.
This may have been an error in judgment by a couple of overzealous young soldiers of Allah, but clearly, it does not end with just these two young sons of Chechnya. The ties go much wider and deeper than that, though it may be doubtful whether the Current Regime is willing to make any of these bonds known. Not to worry, the Russian Federation is very good at connecting the dots in the Chechnyan puzzle, as they have wide experience in dealing with them on a direct basis.
Didn’t he say it’s been a bad week? It sure has for him. First guns, and now immigration... along with a whole bunch of questions that’ll come out about to the Boston mess.
This piece of crap still covering for islam.. There is no rush to judgement Obama. We understand that islam’s goal is our death and destruction. No amount of covering by you will change that.
Massachusetts is a cursed socialist land that put the likes of Barney Frank, Kerry, and Ted Kennedy in Congress for years.
These raghead pukes wouldn't try this in Wyoming, they would stick out like a sore thumb.
Obama intentionally uses the word “tragedy” instead of the word “CRIME.”
Weren’t there rumors of Chechnyan fighters in Libya and Syria? Maybe the Russians can help clarify... the Islam loving US gov’t won’t.
Sorry, but this is not a tragedy. At tragedy is a story in which the protagonist dies due to a flaw in his character that proves fatal. This was a terrorist attack.
How about “He is a talking dog with parasites”?
Obama: ‘We’ve Closed An Important Chapter In This Tragedy’
OK, then we’ve closed an important chapter in regards to Sandy Hook. Closed. “Shall not be infringed” remains central to our way of life. We no longer need a “national conversation about guns”.
... unless, of course, you are ready to have that national conversation about Islam.
Since the President’s friends from the Weather Underground dropped terrorism and took up indoctrination on college campuses, no other enemies have attacked America from without or within. Except Islam.
It’s time for that national conversation on Islam.
“If Romney were president now every Democrat and most members of the media would be saying this was a failure of his administration to keep Americans safe.”
Yes! The angle of every newspaper this weekend and every talking head show Sunday morning would be about how the Romney administration caused this by cutting government spending and focusing too much on tax cuts for the rich.
The re-branding of the muslim terrorists will be in full force this Sunday. by next Sunday, they will be just a few “yuts, out on a lark” fighting against Capitalism and an unjust oppressive system run by Christian bigots who hate gays and women while all the hopes of the left and the democrat party that this was perpetrated an actual American will be swept under the rug.
I really wish Democrats would just join islam and leave us alone. The burkas would be an improvement for most of them.
Bent on destroying America?
Their goal is to destroy all of Western Civilization, and, ultimately, the entire non-Islamic world.
After a full 3 months in office the Romney/Ryan administration would have been expected to root out ALL the bad guys in the country.
No materr WHO set this into motion, Bill Ayres or Radical Islam, we will see more.
Agree with both. It does seem that the wheel is turning, but we’ll know more if illegal immigration “ reform” bites the dust. We do know that even if is proven that Zero is the antichrist, the drive-by media will still be his lapdogs.
I listened to B-HO’s monologue. Sounded like a professor listing items on a summary of a social studies course. We didn’t need an empty lesson from B-HO. Actually, we needed him to go back inside and shut his stupid mouth.
Mr. President, aren't you ashamed to even ask those questions when it is evident, even to the least intellectually developed that the "young men who grew up and studied here" only put in practice what you and your ilk have been teaching and preaching and then you have the nerve to act all innocent and surprised!!!
The president added: "We will determine what happened, we will investigate any associations that these terrorists may have had, and we'll continue to do what we have to do to keep our people safe." (My emphasis)
There you go again, Mr. President with your warped sense of your duty and responsibility. You shouldn't be determining anything (as in Benghazi) Mr. President because those actions either create more problems or cover up evidence.
Facts, Mr. President, facts should determine what happened. Facts without your or your minion's actions interfering, covering up, delaying, withholding and exercising executive privileges.
Mr. President, if you want to play 'king of the mountain' at home with your wife, daughters and dog, that is between you and them but when you are performing duties of your elected, temporary (4 yrs) job as chief executive, being paid with public funds, living in public housing, it would serve you well to remember who employs you and to whom you MUST answer.
This’ll be swept under the rug so fast it’ll make your head spin.
“Glad to hear he thinks it is all over....”
OK, well, glad that’s over, and now, back to gun control and immigration reform...
“Didnt he say its been a bad week?”
It’s all about HIM, you know...this really throws a monkey wrench in the machinery of his agenda. Very bad.
“Obama intentionally uses the word tragedy instead of the word CRIME.
This needs to be reinforced. Words matter, and these choices of words are NO ACCIDENT.
Has the jihadist been Mirandized yet???????
The part of me that believes we have very evil people in government right now wonders if an order came down not to Mirandize him for a specific reason.
He has worms and fleas. Wonder if a veternarian can prescribe a medication to deworm him and other for the fleas. Might have to have an exterminator come in and delouse the White House. Just thought it would be a god way to clarify what Our Parasite in Chief is truly.
Why wasn’t he on TV telling the MSM not to rush to judgement when they were trying (hoping) to pin this on some old white guy/NRA/Tea Party/Conservatives?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
He’s a “Move On” guy. Al Queda is defeated (forget Bengazi); move on. What a tool.
Flies love to land on him, too, since he smells like $#!7. Even his family says so.
In an interview with Glamour magazine, Michelle Obama reveals that her husband, Barack, is so snore-y and stinky when he wakes up in the morning that their daughters wont crawl into bed with him.The interview, in the magazines October issue, was conducted by Tonya Lewis Lee, who is married to Spike Lee, the filmmaker.
Islamic immigrants like the 2 brothers and Obama are the greatest real threat to america in history
This is only two. There are many thousands of others.
It’s not over. Not even close.
There is only another million or so motivated Muslim Democratic terrorists hiding on the campuses.
This was just two, possibly three if one does accept the reality the Saudi national was indeed involved, possibly the instigator working on the behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Why would ANYbody listen to Obama? I can’t stand to hear his voice, I mute him whe he comes on...I ‘ve about worn out my mute button.
Quit telling us how to think, Bammy. Can’t you take a break from trying to control us for a moment while we celebrate this capture?
The Chechens have a lot of oil money which they use to send their kids here to live the high life. Not all are radical Islamists but I’m sure some are. It’s probably pretty easy for someone to pull the trigger since the one I just found out about (during a discussion of Boston) has no skills. That means he is utterly reliant on the money stream and whoever controls the money can control the kid.
You thought I was referring only to Chechens?
Not at all. The Chechens are just one example.
Glad to hear he thinks it is all over....
I am hoping that Glenn Beck’s story will show all of us that it is, indeed, not over.
...Obamas 15 minutes of mojo are up.
Oh, how I wish you were right, but the game and the lies will continue. The media will see to that.
Even FDR, with all of his misguided socialist goals, probably thought he was doing something good for this country. Obamugabe hates this country and wants to destroy it, which is why Soros picked him as his window dressing.
Exactly. Good observation.;
It still blows my mind that a mere 7 years after 9/11, we elected a Muslim.
