Very pleased to see the Boston area police and the local people who stood up tall in the face of danger to them, and being of assistance to the victims in the midst of confusion of two bomb blasts. The American people are not wimps, unlike too many of our politicians.  

    It appears we are now back to pre-9/11 in failed government planning and coordination among the FBI-CIA and other “government intelligence” sources when it comes to sharing and dealing with terrorists. The Obama administration was told twice by the Russians we had a terrorist cell, yet they took no action. If it had not been for the Boston-area citizens and local police identifying and catching these two terrorists, their next stop was New York’s Times Square, with 10 explosive devices found in their residence.  

    But let’s not just blame the Obama administration, what was Congress doing? Well, trying to take away our guns through the excuse of registering all guns for our safety, and of course immigration reform, both being championed by the brilliant Sens. Schumer and McCain, and many other fools. How would you like to be ordered to secure your home when a terrorist is loose in your neighborhood; but you had no weapons to protect your family, because the Obama administration took them away for “your safety?”

    This just confirms that the majority of our elected federal officials are out of touch with reality. They are more interested in getting money and votes, than protecting our freedom and security.

    Do you feel Obama and the majority of senators and U.S. representatives have your back? I believe the American people have voted. Try purchasing a gun or ammunition, they are not available.

    For sure I don’t believe Obama will act to protect our safety in an attack, it will be another Benghazi. He said on August 20, 2012, his “red line” for action was if Syria used chemical weapons. On April 26, 2013, it was confirmed by blood tests that Sarin gas was used in Syria. But, Obama then said on April 26, that he has no “on or off switch” that would trigger his action if chemical weapons were used, this would require a lot of study, it’s very complicated.  

    What message does this send to our enemies — yes, we have a wimp as a president, and a terrorist apologist.  

    Protect your family.
