Moving photos: The US Capitol, White House flags at half-staff to honor victims of Boston bombing

A moving photo in the aftermath of the horrific Boston Marathon bombing.

More photos of the U.S. Capitol yesterday:

The American flag that flies over the US Capitol is at half staff in honor of the victims of the #BostonMarathon attack. #regram from @uscapitol

The American flag at The White House now also flies at half-staff.

It has. It has now been lowered.

White House flag lowered to half-staff

We continue to pray for the victims and their loved ones.

    I don’t remember the White House lowering the flag for the victims of Benghazi, did they?

      Or for those who die in Chicago every week. Nope. They don’t count. They must expect their deaths simply because they are in Chicago. You know, the city with lots of gun control.

        In the neighborhood organized by BHO …

        But that was probably another stupid thought / post.

    • SpinMeNot

      Actually, Obama did order that, the LSM didn’t cover it much — Politico did have a story as I recall.

  • SpinMeNot

    The pertinent section of the Flag Code says, “by order
    of the President, the flag shall be flown at half-staff upon the death of principal
    figures of the United States Government and the Governor of a State, territory, or
    possesion, as a mark of respect to their memory. In the event of the death of other
    officials or foreign dignitaries, the flag is to be displayed at half-staff according
    to Presidential orders, or in accordance with recognized customs or practices not
    inconsistent with law.

    The left cares about the votes lost, nothing more.

      What a remarkably dumb thing to think much less say or post.

      • SpinMeNot

        Prove me wrong. Where is the outrage over Gosnell? Where is the outrage over Benghazi? Where is the outrage over the left blaming the bombings on the republicans, tea partiers, etc.

        No, its you that have continually proven yourself to be stupid … once again you project, like the rest of your lefty buddies.

        • Sons Thunder

          I’m outraged! Does that make you happy?
          Maybe we don’t all live our life in a state of perpetual outrage and blame. Maybe we recognize that horrible things happen and that’s just the way it is and it would be better to quit being whiny little babies about it.
          Some of us realize that Michael Moore is mostly an absolute idiot. Of course, Ann Coulter will be coming along to say the grieving family members of those dead are actually ecstatic over their deaths.

          Grow up. Realize that most of the targets of terrorism are going to be in major cities. Those major cities are full of liberals.

          Projection? Do you just throw words out there and hope they have relevance?

          • SpinMeNot

            No it doesn’t help if you are outraged — because Hillary wasn’t, “What does it matter!?” were her words not mine.

            And there you go, committing libel … I don’t like Ms. Coulter personally, but prove she is going to do what you assert you say she is going to do.

            Did I hit a nerve? Good. Look at the twitter followers of Michael Moore, many people don’t think he’s an idiot. Many people believe the crap in his so called documentaries.

            Grow up? I grew up in the rice paddies of Viet Nam, carrying a rifle, my ruck sack, and many occasions a buddy.

            I stand by it, you are projecting — my comment isn’t stupid. It was opinionated … there is a huge difference. If you aren’t going to vote for them, the democrats don’t care about you. Look at what they have done to the inner cities and how they have not helped a single person. Look at how the LIVs demonize any black person that dares go against the plantation masters.

            EDIT: Wait, you are right it was a stupid comment. The democrats, and in fact all the kleptocrats in DC only care about your votes, so they can keep their power. They don’t care about any of us personally.

            And as far as throwing out words, want to continue to deny the Left Stream Media steering the narrative that the bombing was carried out by a right winger, extremist or otherwise?

            I wasn’t being literal about Coulter but I was referencing a well-publicized line of hers.

            “These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands’ death so much.” – Ann Coulter on the 9/11 widows
