    Who's speculation, this wonderful administration we are enjoying? The very same ones that completely missed the timing of Benghazi on 9/11 and called it just a random act? As much as the current administration and mainstream media wants of avoid it, there is only 1 common denominator in these attacks.
    Unfortunately the front line of terror has moved to the first responder. Their mistake was playing it out in a tough, self-made, blue collar city like Boston. You don't descend from the same stock that carved out this great country by turning the other cheek.

    Not so easy to stereotype when you know the facts.

    Secondly, given the perps stated those reasons for both the Columbine and OKC incidents, I am making my assertion with some degree of historical knowledge.

    I freely admit I could be wrong. Again, hence the use of the term "speculation."

    So who is turning the other cheek? What is the link you are trying to draw between the two events? Was the Administration responsible for not predicting the bombing in Boston? Why don't you just go one step further and blame the explosion in West, TX on him as well.

    But why say it in the first place? That is my point. I ran all kinds of possibilities through my head, but felt no need to add to the anxiety people felt by pointing fingers.

    Definitely NOT Boston!
    Nope, but your speculation was of a crazed right-winger marking some holiday or such. The link is this administration and media will do anything not to put blame where it needs to be on the fallacy of hurting their feelings. Using the right as a convenient scapgoat. Much like you alluded too.

    It's not like there is no precedent for my premise.

    Your claims about the media and not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings doesn't make any sense. Could you be more specific.
