It's a good thing Obama made us more "likable" so stuff like this won't happen on our soil...

Obama thinks that we need reductions in spending in the military and our national security. He thinks we're "over secure" and that our national security interests hamper our ability to better defend ourselves. Care to re-think your position?

Foreign/domestic, it doesn't matter. He wants to reduce security spending, period.

um...I kind of agree...to me homeland security should not exist. Their job is already supposedly being done by the FBI... 2 orginizations doing the same job is a waste of money IMO

No problem with being angry, completely understandable and expected. However, considering as its too early to know anything that happened, especially what the cause was, stating that its because of Obama, or anyone else for that matter, seems rather overzealous and, IMO, wrongly placed. Perhaps the first thoughts could be something along the lines of ensuring those immediately affected are as safe as possible, stopping any further incidents and gathering evidence and facts.

I'll just leave this here for you:

Sorry, but screw your "first thoughts" they're nothing I can do anything about. I can and am pissed about what happened though, and like I said, unless it was some sort of gas-line accident (no way in hell), I have properly directed my anger.

Just wondering, if it turns out to be 'domestic terrorism' is it still Obama's fault? At this point, the only thing I'm willing to claim is that it was a nutjob.

Care you layout your case?

Still waiting for your proof, so far all you've provided is opinion.

I'm sorry, but this is about a tragedy and not a place to go off on a political tangent. My .02

Agreed. I allowed myself to be sucked in by a previous comment; my apologies.

Really?

That Democrats want to cut national defense spending isn't really "new news" that needs "proof."

Sorry, I didn't know there was an "appropriate" place to talk about the real problem. Maybe we should make another thread?

This is no different than the Democrats discussing the AR-15 ban 2 hours after the latest school shooting.
