In the immediate aftermath of the multiple explosions that rocked the Copley Square area of Boston during this afternoons marathon, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof took to Twitter to say that the tragic events are a reminder of how Senate Republicans blocked the appointment of a new director for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
[E]xplosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment, he tweeted with a link to a Washington Post article on the Senate GOPs threats to put a hold on President Obamas nomination for a new ATF director.....

Did anyone watch “A Puppy Named Scooby Doo?” It was a weekly cartoon sort of lampooning the original series. There was this one unlikable character named “Red Herring” and every week whenever something bad happened, Freddy would always say with certainty “I bet Red Herring did it!”.
Of course, the Red Herring never was the one behind the different crimmes.
The MSM so much reminds me of Freddy on that show.
Just another NYT intellectual ideologue caught floating in a toilet bowl that escaped the first flush.... Them floaters are hard flushers!
The mantra is everything bad happens because the left doesn’t get its way. That will never change no matter the events or the issues.
Jerks never apologize. They “take it back.”
note: those foolish comments are NOT me, I am reporting “tweets” from Cenk Uygur of CurrentTV
Where is the evidence?
They are saying the suspect is a Saudi national.
What are these Saudi men having?....
Ergo, it was the TEA PARTY!
Yeah, they sometimes “take” it back or “walk” it back,
but they just can’t resist saying it in the 1st place.
The walk-back and take-back never get publicized, the way
the idiot initial statement does.
You make a good point about the Tea/Saudi thing.
I never saw the connection be4, but it IS there.
Oh, OK, so then places where the left was virtually unopposed would obviously be paradise, like the Soviet Union......oh, wait....
It is alleged that Administration also had placed family members of the Sandy Hook victims at the end of the marathon run course.
12 dead, at least more 50 injured after 2 explosions rock Boston Marathon, suspect identified and being guarded in hospital

No surprise...I’m sure the liberals and the MSM are ginning up all sorts of false and malicious stories about how the Tea Party, talk radio, right wing extremists and I’m sure the NRA and the budget sequestration are somehow responsible for this attack.
The BATFE doesn’t need a new director: it needs to be abolished.
he and 90% of all the others in the media are a bunch of communist / socialist / islomist enablers...did i mention liars too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The “Drive-by Media” term is quite appropriate.
The 'fibbies' ought to already have a search warrant to go through his various properties in the vicinity of New York city.
Yep, and they will do gymnastics trying to figure out how to blame it on Bush, or Sarah Palin, or Rush, or Beck, or.......
