BOSTON » President Barack Obama declared "there is a piece of Boston in me" as he paid tribute to a city shaken by what he has called an act of terror. He said: "Every one of us stands with you."

Obama addressed an interfaith service in the aftermath of Monday's twin blasts that killed three and injured more 170 people at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Obama said a day of beauty was shattered when a celebration became a tragedy.

He said Boston gathered Tuesday, quote, "to reaffirm that the spirit of this city is undaunted."

He declared: "You will run again!"

Of the perpetrator, he said: "We will find you."

Does anyone think that this guy will lead anything before his eight year is up? It's always blame this,or blame that, with Republicans being his only, and primary target. It's sad that we've elected a guy who constantly nags one side, and finds no ability to lead a coalition of people in any one direction, but what else could we expect from a community organizer?

This is neither the time or place to continue your anti-Obama nonsense. Classless.

It was a rousing speech. Everybody applauded loudly. He needed a win after being so thoroughly and completely rebuked on both gun registration AND limitations on magazine size. When in doubt, give a speech.

Have you noticed President Obama did not use any phrase such as, "act of terror." The same with the Ft. Hood shootings, and even the embassy attack in Benghazi. Is there a reason to be so averse to calling an act of terror an "act of terror"?
