Writer takes 'asinine' to whole new level

I read Bob Franken’s op-ed referencing the Boston bombings. It took one paragraph before ol’ Bob launched into a NRA tirade. Since Bob Franken and logic never seem to involve each other, I thought this was just another asinine example of the media not letting facts get in the way of their agenda.

However, Franken took asinine to a new level in his next column. He stated all right thinking people were hoping the Boston bombers were not muslims. To think otherwise was bigoted. What? and Why? Bob, you are the bigot, and a hypocrite. If these cowards had any connection with the Tea Party/NRA/Right-wing or Christian group, you and your ilk would be shouting those connections from the roof tops. A continuing trend of violence is now called bigoted. According to the Obama/Kerry run State Department, there are 34 countries with travel advisories for USA citizens. Bob, would you like to guess what 30 of them have in common, or am I being bigoted?

Maybe Bob should investigate why one coward was allowed back in the USA after the FBI had a file on him (and other countries warned us about him). Maybe Bob should invsestigate why the other coward was allowed citizenship when his immediate family members had potential terrioist ties. Maybe Bob should investigate why this coward was on welfare.

Try something new Bob. Get rid of the agenda and look for the facts. At the very least, be honest. The next column should start with Barrack Obama stating, “I approve this editorial.”
