“And I don’t know if it’s related, but I can just sense, not only in my election but since being here in Washington, people are frustrated,” he said. “They want transparency.”"Remember. This guy killed two people. He certainly could have killed more in this act of terrorism. And I agree with those who say this guy seems hard to pin down ideologically. He spouts anti-government sayings that sound Tea Party-like but also rails against the failure to get healthcare reform--which does not.
But the indicator is really how the Right has responded. They wanted the Christmas day bomber waterboarded and are furious that he was Mirandized, but don't even see Stack's actions as terrorism, and even see it with sympathy. Brown followed up that ridiculous line about transparency with an acknowledgement that this was an "extreme" act to fly into a building, but "no one likes paying taxes, obviously."
All you have to do is change Stack's skin color, and his suicide note to mention Islam--and the Right would be calling for Obama to resign for allowing the terrorists to win.
