Bloomberg and Obama Disappointed Bomber Wasn’t a Tea Partier

Bloomberg thinks Times Square bomber may have not liked health care

Here's the video of Bloomberg telling Katie Couric that the bomber was an angry Tea Partier upset with Obamacare. Small problem for the mayor. The bomber is a Muslim of Pakistani descent and naturalized American citizen who, as such, had to be read his Miranda rights.

Bloomberg's appeasement of the Islamic community is not new. In the days after the Fort Hood shootings last year, Bloomberg welcomed an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Siraj Wahhaj, to a meeting to discuss that shooting. That'd be like asking the fox into the hen house to help identify what killed the hen.


El Rushbo: Bloomberg & Obama Disappointed Bomber Wasn’t a Tea Partier

RUSH: You know, folks, if this weren’t so serious, it would be hilariously funny. The mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg is telling anybody and everybody that the Times Square bomber had to be somebody unhappy with Obama’s health care plan, a tea partier. And then after it was learned that, no, no, no, this guy’s a Muslim extremist from Pakistan, and there’s a lot more we know about the guy, then Bloomberg comes out, “We’re not going to tolerate any backlash against Middle Easterners or Muslims in New York City.” Of course, backlash against the tea party people was expected, it was hoped for. You have the entire Democrat Party, you have the entire United States legacy media hoping and praying that it was a domestic Republican tea party terrorist who listened to me, that set that bomb in an SUV in Times Square. That’s where we are in the country. I mean everybody knows that Faisal Shahzad, the mayor of New York shoulda known this, Obama shoulda said this in his presser today, everybody knows this guy was upset over the new Arizona immigration law and so he decided to blow up Times Square.

Why didn’t they go for that instead of the tea party and the health care bill? Bloomberg, you’re an absolute blithering, embarrassing idiot. If you’re going to try to relate this to modern politics, tell us that this Muslim from Pakistan is upset over the Arizona law. Health care is yesterday’s news. You are an absolute embarrassment. The whole Democrat Party is an embarrassment, the leftist movement in this country is an embarrassment and the media is so far gone that they’re a joke, an absolute, irresponsible joke. You would not believe what they’re trying to say about me and this oil spill. Before they’re through with this, it’s going to be my fault, not Bush’s, not Obama’s, not BP’s, but mine. I got e-mails last night from people: “Rush, did you really say that oil and water mixed is fine and we shouldn’t do anything?” This is my NFL St. Louis Rams purchase all over again. They’re making up things I didn’t say, and of course these absolute… (sigh) I’m thinking of an anatomy on the human body I could use in a family show to describe these absolute, total, worthless pieces of human debris at MSNBC. I’m in a great mood here, folks, don’t misunderstand anything.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had our boot on the throat of Muslim extremists just like we have our boot on BP, a company who is attempting to produce energy for us to improve our lifestyle and our economic output and our standard of living? Oh, no, we gotta keep a boot, a jackboot on the throat of British Petroleum. We gotta blame them for everything. When we have an obvious example here of predictable terrorism, no, can’t call it what it is. Gotta hold out hope it was a tea party guy run amuck. Guess what? Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. I wonder if this SUV had an Obama sticker on it. Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. The original New York Times headline on this was: “US Arrests SUV Owner In Times Square Case.” They then changed it but that was their first headline: “US Arrests SUV Owner.” Fine, so he’s a Democrat. I want to see the Obama sticker on his car. Notice how quickly they got it outta Times Square before anybody could hop and maybe see an “Obama 2012″ bumper sticker on the damn car.


Obama administration says Emirates Airlines Dropped the Ball ( Obama Blames someone else AGAIN)

ABC News

Senior administration officials say that Faisal Shahzad was put on the no fly list on Monday at 12:30 pm ET.

So how was he able to board the Emirates Airlines flight to Dubai?

“It takes a few hours for the airlines system to catch up,” a senior administration official tells ABC news.

Another senior administration official adds that Emirates refreshes their system to update with US intelligence information periodically – but not frequently.

In any case, the first official says that airlines were “within minutes” of Shahzad being put on the no-fly list told to “look at a web-board” and manually check its passenger manifest against the news on the web board.

“That appears to not have happened” the official says. “For whatever reason there was a breakdown at the Emirates level.”

Emirates Airlines provided its locked-in passenger manifest to the Customs and Border Protection agency. The plane at that point can leave. But a CBP official caught Shahzad’s name on the manifest and the plane never left the gate.

“That redundancy is built in,” the official says. “It’s not luck it’s design. It was good work by CBP.”

Former 9/11 Commission vice chair and Democratic congressman Lee Hamilton seems less impressed.

Hamilton reminds ABC News that “the 9/11 commission recommended that you had to have biometric evidence, documentarian evidence of people coming in and exiting” the country. “We’ve done a pretty good job on the first part of it people entering the country. But with regard to those exiting the country we simply have not been able to set up a system to deal with that and it showed in this case.”

Hamilton says “we need to have in this country a system of checking people leaving the country so that we can protect against the very sort of thing that happened here -- or at least almost happened here.”


Wild Thing's comment........

Bloombergis an idiot to say the least.

And Obama would never stop blaming others for anthing. Freaking jerk! With him it is always someone elses fault.

Hamilton reminds ABC News that “the 9/11 commission recommended that you had to have biometric evidence, documentarian evidence of people coming in and exiting” the country. “We’ve done a pretty good job on the first part of it people entering the country.


Hey, Hamilton, go peddle your moldering tripe in southern AZ, CA, NM and TX.

Good luck with that.

Hes all we need to listen to. Only one Rush, Guess that's why he's been around for so long. During Clinton, he was a life saver, today he's the whole llife raft.

Mark, I agree, I learned so much from Rush during the clinton years. The timing of Rush coming on the scene for all of us has been so perfect.
