Has Mumbles Merino spoken..IIRC, when the guy tried to blow up Times Square, Nanny Bloomberg blamed it on someone who was upset that Obamacare wasn’t being passed..

Anyone want to bet against me that when Chris Matthews comes on the air later today, he’ll blame it on the Tea Party?

Sounds like the police may have intentionally detonated something suspicious?

Yes, I’m expecting that. As well as the subsequent embarrassment and hushup when they suddenly discover a Muslim or group thereof as the actual perpetrator.

It'll get quiet real quick and disappear from headlines when it's found out that the ROP perpetrators came in across the southern border.
