Chris Matthews has actually said that President Obama is “the perfect American,” so we’d encourage him to try harder to emulate his hero, who in a statement just over an hour ago declared that “people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts.”

Is is possible that the bombings at the Boston Marathon were somehow related to tax day? Certainly — anything’s possible at this point. But what’s this malarkey about domestic terrorism being a right-wing phenomenon?

Real Clear Politics has the video:

Normally, domestic terrorists, people tend to be on the far right, well that’s not a good category, just extremists, let’s call them that. Do they advertise after they do something like this? Do they try to get credit as a group or do they just hate America so much or its politics or its government that they just want to do the damage, they don’t care if they get public credit, if you will?

Oh, and what does it say that the “terrorists” went after the JFK Library, which honors one of America’s most beloved Democrat presidents? Probably not a lot, as the fire there is now being called an unrelated incident.
