President Obama made a wandering and odd speech on the capture of the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing on Friday. Stranger still, no one really cared what he had to say.
The President spent his political capital on gun control. A wasted effort to get Americans to agree that allowing the government to have more rights than the people was reasonable. Again, no one really cared what he had to say.
Gun rights and the Boston bomber are both incredibly important issues that most Americans have paid close attention to. The difference is that Obama has next to no credibility on either of these issues/stories so no one really wants to hear from him on either of them.
President Obama hit the rose garden with a speech he obviously felt would raise the spirits of everyone in Boston. What he failed to realize is that Boston was strong before he ever got elected and they don’t need him to feel safe.
