Dennis Miller Rips Obama, Axelrod & Barney Frank For Bombing Reactions

DENNIS MILLER: On day two, when the president says anytime bombs are used against innocents, it's terrorism -- at that point, day one, it becomes important to me. In a vague way, I just go, 'wow, yesterday he didn't say that.'

And the second thing is, when he says we want to find out who did this and why they did this. I find why to be such a superfluous situation at that point. I don't need to know their alibi. I think when you parse madness it is a fool's errand. I just want to know who did it and I want them to be brought to justice. So there were a couple of things there.

And lastly, when Axelrod says the president did not want to use the word terrorist because everybody knows what that means these days. I think he was saying that what they mean is radical Islamic terrorists. Listen, when I say food stamp recipients, I mean food stamp recipients. I don't mean black people. When I say terrorists, I mean terrorists. I don't necessarily mean Islamic terrorists.

I want Axelrod to do the ultimate gesture and quit figuring out what I mean.


DENNIS MILLER: Sometimes I find that liberals, in lieu of actual empathetic gestures -- heartfelt empathy -- they turn it into an affair of their mind. They intellectually empathize with you. Barney Frank will tell you everything he does is for the disenfranchised, the people under foot. And you just want to say, 'Can you start your empathy by just not being a jerk to the people you come across in your day-to-day life? Can you take a moment and not be so arrogant about your inner-voice, that you bring it out immediately in the wake of a tragedy like this and tell us what you feel. Be heartfelt empathetic, not head-driven empathetic.
