Bloomberg worried that the person who tried to blame Time Square bombing on someone upset with government health care takeover

Did Katie Couric object to this? No. Note that while Tea Party people haven't gotten arrested once in all their demonstrations and the anti-Arizona rallies have produced all sorts of arrest, the media and certain politicians have a story line that they want to push against conservatives.

With Katie Couric drawing him out, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg agreed the Times Square car bombing was likely “homegrown” as he proceeded, in an interview excerpt run on Monday's CBS Evening News, to speculate it could have been placed by “somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something" ... the first thing Bloomberg thinks of are those who don't like ObamaCare, presumably conservatives or Tea Party activists. . . .

But it turns out:

Appearing in person in the Justice Department briefing room at 1:30 a.m., Attorney General Eric Holder said the suspect, a Pakistan-born American named Faisal Shahzad, 30, was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport while attempting to board a flight for Dubai.


He is Muslim of Pakistani heritage with dual citizenship in the United States, a registered Democrat in the state of Connecticut who may be an Obama donor. He was recently naturalized as a U.S. citizen under the Obama administration’s lenient open door policy." . . .

Why does it never occur to anybody that it could be a guy upset about the repeated bombs being dropped on his native country?

The major mystery (followed by the minor mystery) is:

Who cares what Couric does?

Why does anybody listen to him?

Opps. Did I say "he"?

Silly me. I must have been thinking of Katie Olbermann--all same thing.

Oh, it does occur to every soft-headed liberal enemy.
