    There is no real need for the President to actually go to Boston. Technology is already in place for him to make what ever speech he wants, to any audience in the world, yet actually remain in the White House. Because of the President's own sequester cuts it is too dangerous to fly and too expensive to travel. The federal government cannot even afford to provide White House tours let alone the President to take unnecessary trips. The President should just stay in Washington and let the professionals do their job.

    "So it's clear the authorities are absolutely clear. This is a terrorism investigation. It's a terrorism case," he said."
    The only thing unclear is whether it is domestic or foreign. That will be revealed as the evidence is gathered, just like any other criminal case that the FBI handles.
    Of course, I am certain that there will be some commenters here that won't understand that basic.
    No, first there will be liberal bashing.
    Then there will be retaliation conservative bashing.
    And in the end, regardless of whether the terrorists are domestic or foreign, they will have won.
    They will have divided Americans and pitted us against ourselves, and manipulated us into claiming that both liberals and conservatives lie and are just disgusting people and they aren't Americans.
    And that is exactly how they want it.

    Thank you Noone UKnow

    Thank you Mr. President for leading us in this horrible event. You are ten times the president, man and humanitarian that President Bush was. Stay strong, God and the country are with you!

    it must be said

    Of course he is. Was there any doubt he would? He uses every opportunity he can to get in front of the TV cameras. Pretty soon he'll start showing up at every fire as well. Please stop this constant pursuit of media events and stay in Washington and do your job.

    That tinfoil hat must be fitting a little snug because the little bit of sense is having trouble escaping. This is the president of the United States. There was a terror attack in Boston that killed Americans and seriously injured many others. Get a grip on yourself and try to get over the faux news rhetoric. Its old tired and vapid

    Sure. Maybe he should sit with his finger up his butt like GW Bush did with 911. Then invade Korea....

    Sarah Palin as President? Are you nuts? And of course Obama is going to Boston. No matter what he does, or where he goes, you ODS sufferers would trash him.
