Nice to see the goptp wasting more taxpayer money trying to pin something on Obama. They will make this tragic event another circus like Benghazi.

The investigation after it happened was impressive. The vetting that allowed the bomber to become a US Citizen was very poor. His mom and brother were both on the watch list. How in the world was he allowed to become a citizen?

Wasn't it obama's main squeeze, Rahm Emmanual, that said "Never let a big crisis go to waste?" It looks like the GOP is just using the liberal approach...just sayin'!!!

"The first of a series of House hearings is set for Thursday before the GOP-led House Homeland Security Committee."----Lets call it what it really is. It's a GOP-led waste of MY TAXES! I'm sick of the GOP going on crusades and wasting MY MONEY. If they want to go on a crusade they should do it within their own party (and in their own time on their own clock with their own money) and get rid of the kind of people that think women can stop a pregnancy if they are being raped and those that make ridiculously false claims about history like Michelle Bachmann who also says HPV shots cause autism. This behavior the GOP displays is so far beyond annoying. I am sick of them wasting MY MONEY on their ridiculous childish crusades. We get it. You hate Obama. You don't like him being president. To bad. He is until his term is over. Then you can try again. Until then do your job and quit wasting MY MONEY. I don't get to act like that at my job and neither should they.

So glad that the prosecutor and the federal magistrate walked arm-in-arm to Dzhokhar's bedside to deliver his Miranda warning before he could speak to investigators. Funny, I don't recall having a judge come to my house after I got my last traffic citation.

GOP on Bengazi: This is an outrage. We demand an explanation about how this happened and why it wasn't prevented. GOP on the Boston bombing: This is an outrage. We demand an explanation about how this happened and why it wasn't prevented. GOP on Sandy Hook elementary: This is a national tragedy. Nothing could have been done to prevent it.

I don't expect the FBI and CIA to prevent every act of terrorism, but I do expect them to have a database of young foreign nationals who have been identified as potential terrorists. This database should have been instantly available to match the photos of the killers in order to apprehend them without further violence and turning a city upside down.

Nice to see the goptp wasting more taxpayer money trying to pin something on Obama. They will make this tragic event another circus like Benghazi. So "formergop", has anyone been arrested for Benghazi? Four Americans are dead and no one has been brought to justice, this whole event has been left off the headlines from the mainstream media. Maybe you should show a little more respect for those that have died, instead of spouting off about things that are clearly above your intelligence level.

"Obama says the FBI "can't arrest somebody just based on a rumor."" ----- That is true, which is a good thing. However, the FBI should be able to prevent someone from entering the country and also prevent them from becoming a citizen.

We are simply letting too many people immigrate to the US who come from a violent background and a violent ideology.
