Didn't you just know it was only a matter of time until Fox News started blaming President Obama for the Boston bombings? On Fox Nation right now, there's a post called, "Telegraph: Boston Bombs: Obama Lulled America Into False Confidence Over Terror Threat."
You don't really need to read the article to get the gist but here's an excerpt:
In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was "confident" of achieving "our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda".
Although he acknowledged the need to pursue the "remnants" of the terrorist group and its affiliates, the overall message was clear – al-Qaeda was badly degraded, the tides of war were receding and the US was winning this fight that was no longer even officially a war.
I mean, he abandoned the war on terror to invade Iraq….oh, wait, that was W.
He said he wasn’t really worried about Osama bin Laden’s whereabouts….oh, wait, that was W.
He was on vacation for a month before the attack….oh, wait, that was W.
He gave the order to kill bin Laden. That WASN’T W.
Thank you for gathering all together in one place the stupidest of the stupid, leaving the rest of the internet a reasonably safe and sane place for the rest of us….. except maybe for a few of my right-wing nutty nieces and nephews and brother-in-laws, who don’t watch news anyhow because there noses are usually buried in their iphones as they post pictures of themselves drunk and puking up all over somebody lawn somewhere on facebook….
Honestly, sometimes I wonder what a composite PCL-R for a Fox supporter looks like. How functional they are really is a good question.
Fox needs and wants to keep us divided. Anything that has the slightest possibility of a flicker of having the country united as one, even temporarily, must be extinguised immediately.
Oh my! It must be those special hypnotizing powers granted to him by some powerful being. I mean, Hannity keeps calling Obama “The Annointed One”, right?
Oh so true!
All they have to offer is hatred fueled by the fear that they, themselves, do so love to foster and tend …. and then they have the gall to include themselves as citizens of “the land of the brave and the free”.
Their constant fear mongering makes me understand them to be enslaved by their own fear fueled by wilful ignorance.
I guess they really do get my goat!
I cannot respect ditto-heads!
Clinton attacks terrorists, GOPtards say “Boo! Just tell us about your BJ!”
2001 Bush goes on longest vacation ever, comes back to read “My Pet Goat” while America is clobbered. GOPtards say “He’s The Man!”
2002-2003 Bush says “Darth Cheney told me WMD in Iraq! This means unnecessary war!” GOPtards say “That’s leadership!”
2004-2008 Bush goofs off while OBL escapes, New Orleans drowns and Wall Street plunders the lower 99%. GOPtards say “Our Hero!”
2009 to present GOPtards say “It’s Obama’s fault!”
And that is how Fux Nuze reports it.
So true — the elder brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, entered the US in 2002/03, and became a permanent resident in 2007.
Seems it was Dumbya who “lulled America into false confidence over the terror threat” . . .
@ Brian Hicks: “It always makes me laugh when these fools make demands like this with an ‘or else’ tone when everybody knows they are full of shit.”
Becky’s just channeling his inner Donald Trump — remember when Trump “made” the President produce his long-form birth certificate, and took credit for doing so afterward?
“Oh yeah—and Beck has already called for the immediate impeachment of Obama.”
We were discussing that over on PoliticusUSA:
It seems there’s no end to what rightwingnuts will call for President Obama’s impeachment for — the use of Air Force One, signing healthcare reform legislation into law, making recess appointments, offering a congressman a White House job, etc.
But, let a white GOP president wiretap US citizens without warrants, out a covert CIA agent, start two wars based on fake intel, or play air guitar while a major US city drowns — and any talk of ACCOUNTABILITY, let alone impeachment, is considered “treasonous” . . .
