    I wish the Obama folks pull out the report and send it to Boehner and the other Repubs and demand an apology but but.. that would be politicizing a tragedy right?
    Obama's hands are tied, because it's an election year.

    I'm sure there are a dozen things Obama would love to do right now concerning domestic terrorism, but it's an election year.

    Therefore, per Beltway conventional wisdom,  since it's an election year, Obama is rendered ineffectual as a leader.

      True, there are some things that play politically better than other things. However, look at the Gays getting support and Latinos getting support. Neither of those things has done anything other than strengthen Obama's lead and you know why? It is because he is giving the base reason to come out and vote for him. 2010 went badly because there were no rallies for health care or student loans and the most timid blue dogs lost because of it.
