Santelli: Why Doesn't Obama Want To Take Credit For The Stock Market?

Limbaugh: If Boston Bomber Is Muslim "The Media Will Circle The Wagons"

GOP Rep. Peter King On Boston Bombing: "We Need More Cameras"

ANDREA MITCHELL, MSNBC: Congressman, briefly, do you think that this will lead to more cameras? I know it's controversial, there are privacy issues. Boston does have a lot of cameras.

Barney Frank On Boston Bombing: "No Tax Cut Would Have Helped Us Deal With This"

BARNEY FRANK: In this terrible situation, let's be very grateful we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, has been for some time, to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think is their assessment of health care.

Axelrod On Boston Bombing: "I'm Sure What Was Going Through The President's Mind Is It Was Tax Day"

CHUCK TODD: I got that sense that there was this frustration that [President Obama] didn't have more facts at hand and I think, frankly, not just him, talk to those investigators in Boston.

Dem Strategist David Sirota: Boston Bombing Tragedy The "New Normal"

SIROTA: I think you're right to note that we don't know exactly what happened in Boston.
