And now twitter is annoying the crap out of me. The GOP certainly has their faults, and there are MANY, but people piling the blame on the GOP as whole, and specific individuals within the GOP, for these suspicious packages is dumb. I hate to agree with CC, but this very easily could be an effort of leftists attempting to drum up support right before the election. I'm not saying it is, but it's certainly happened before. I remember several semi-recent cases of vandalism targeted towards minorities being perpetrated by leftists looking to spark outrage against the right.

I'm keeping an open mind of who it is, but as I said it doesn't matter. Each side will paint that person/s in their own light.

The President did a nice thing today with his statement. It was the right statement...now, let's see if he stays on message tonight at a rally.

This isn't the America that Merrick Garland wanted for us. He's definitely looking down from heaven in sadness.

And whoever the perp actually ends up being, putting Debbie Schultz's name on the return addresses was a pretty good troll.

He seems incapable of taking a win and just moving on. Either on his own or by getting prodded in some way, he'll give back the point he scored by not being able to ever STFU.

a few things:

 

1.  Do we know if the so called "bombs" were actually live?  

2.  Why would a right wing group do this 2 weeks before an election?  Timing doesnt add up.

3.  4 or 5 bombs and letters on the same day does not fit the profile.  Especially mailing to 2 former presidents.  

 

None of it passes the smell test.  Someone is trying to hard for a october surprise.

And Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Shumer came out with a joint statement saying his comments "ring hollow" because he condones acts of violence. Forgetting all of their own party who encourage incivility at peoples homes, restaurants, places of work, etc. Get real.

They make Trump look like Patrick Henry

Anyone see the picture the news posted of what it looks like? Doesn’t look very legit, basically screaming hi I’m a bomb.

Also, #magabomber, was the top trend on twitter. Guess the whole wait for some evidence missed everyone

So, I had surgery today and still a bit drugged up. What did Trump say that was so great? I don't mean word for word, but the gist of it.

He condemned the attacks and said violence has no place in politics.

This is already going as expected. 

Pro Trump folks=bombs are left crazies trying to change the narrative before the election 

Anti Trumps folks=crazy MAGA folks and Trump is to blame. 

Also, the White House going all anti-media is so expected and just sad. 

I'm still holding out judgement, but it is going exactly as expected. People are so quick to retreat to their corners.

It'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out. The only certainty at this point is that it won't be surprising in the least.

The media are going to continue to push people out to vote, for the right. You'd think the leaders of the left would tell them to tone it down at some point.

I think it is safe to say whoever did it is a moron, and the bombs were most likely hoaxes, and have fun going to jail.

The partisans are both doing their NPC responses per their programming. Those who hate the two in nearly equal measure see a lone idiot (or very small group of idiot losers) who'll be in jail by election day.

It is sad and dangerous. Will the NPCNN types at some point acknowledge their complicity in the situation and dial back things to where they at least fake fairness as they used to?

I think the media deserves every criticism they get.

They do deserve a decent amount, but in this case the "how" matters. The bull in the china shop approach used by Orange Man is not helpful.
