  •  agree mostly but it does indeed matter who did it (8+ / 0-)

    because if it's AQ or even home grown Jihadists then Obama is in for some major heat and distraction from the GOP and all of his haters just because.  
    If it's homegrown Timothy McVeigh types then Alex Jones and all those other right wing losers and 2nd amendment absolutists will get their deserved scorn and scrutiny.

    •  I really don't think it does. (12+ / 0-)

      If it's home grown - every right winger will call them a "lone wolf" and insist that normal right wingers don't do that shit, despite a growing list of evidence they do - or insist s/he is a Muslim, democrat, mentally ill, etc.  Because reasons.

      If it's a foreigner - still doesn't mean their reasons were Allah hu Akbar - it's an assumption until they go to trial - while everyone freaks out about OMG jihad let's bomb some more middle eastern countries for no actual reason. Not effective as a strategy, not making us safer.  Because reasons.

      The sooner we get over the idea it can't happen here - because clearly, it can and does - and get on with just living life the sooner the shit becomes much less effective as a tactic.  We are making it worse with our belief Americans should be immune to death or consequences to unpopular policies abroad.  We need to just get on and get over giving people who blow shit up power based in fear of them.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
