The logic is simple:

Liberals have held since 9/12/2001 that the Bush Administration was aware of the 9/11 terrorists beforehand, and therefore the blame rests with him for not preventing it. Whether it is true or not, this is long-held liberal belief. In fact, many liberals right here on this forum have alluded to Bush's complicity on numerous occasions. No reason to try deny it. There's too much evidence to the contrary.

Accordingly, the evidence is clear that the Barack Obama Administration was fully aware of the Boston Bombers. It was his Administration that placed the elder bomber on a terrorist watch list. It was his Administration that fielded a tip from Russia. It was his Administration that interviewed the elder bomber. It was his Administration that dropped the ball.

Therefore, it's time to throw liberal ideology back in the faces of the irrational and irresponsible liberals who have consistently and persistently blamed George W. Bush for 9/11.

The blood of Boston is on the hands of none other than Barack Hussein Obama. And don't you forget it.

9-11 was already in the final stages of preparation when Bush took office thanks to Clinton who refused to dirty his hands with al Qaeda.

Obama has been in office for four years and had lots of warnings about the older brother, but they dropped the ball.

I'm a liberal and I never held Bush Responsible for 9/11. I hold the FBI and CIA responsible in as so far that their policies during that time prevented the sharing of information that could have help determine what the next steps by Al Quaeda were.

Barack Obama's admisnitration wasn't fully aware of the Boston Bombers. OR did you forget WHO was the President when both brothers and their family entered the US (hint: It wasn't Obama). Information about the older brother was given o the FBI and as far as I know, the FBI are presidential party less. They hold no allegiance to one President over another.

another fail of a thread.

If George W. Bush Is Accountable For 9/11, Then Barack Obama Is Accountable For the Boston Bombings


Yeah, like the mainstream media will EVER make that connection.

They only use that on Republicans.

You don't think they were trying to promote the TRUTH when they used that line after 9/11, did you?

Are you rejecting that "irrational and irresponsible" approach, or embracing it?

If it's "irrational and irresponsible" to blame Bush for 9/11, then it's also "irrational and irresponsible" to blame Obama for 4/15.

Oh, and also:

Death toll on 4/15: 4.

Death toll on 9/11: 2,977.

I know you'll argue that the death toll doesn't matter -- which is an odd argument coming from someone who is, presumably, "pro-life."

Bush had mountains of info and warnings from Clinton that Bin Laden, the leader of a major terror cell was planning a terror attack on america, W ignored it.

The boston bombers were low level nobodies, on a terror watch list along with over half a million other people.

Trying to blame Obama for the boston bombings is like trying to blame the NRA and gun owners, because they claim having guns everywhere makes all crime go away, and someone with a gun didn't stop them.

It was my understanding that Bush was "warned" ahead of time, with sufficient detail that "problem behaviors" might have been avoided. I haven't heard that Obama was warned in any way ahead of the Boston bombings.

remember all the lefty hecklers who said that Condi Rice was to blame because she ignored a briefing about 'Bin Laden determined to attack' in US.

Good for the goose, good for the gander. Certainly we are now learning that there were red flags regarding Tamerlan Tsarnaev that were available to the Obama admin. But were ignored.

I wouldn't blame either. They doubtless get a mountain of tips and warnings that they have to sift through. But good for the goose, good for the gander.

The only failure here is that you are quite obviously not an astute political observer.
