Why can't Obama say "TERRORIST"?

The whole darn world knows that it was an act of terrorism. even CNN is admitting to it. doesn't matter if it was foreign or domestic planned, it was an act of "TERRORISM". The only one who is shallow on the concept is the President. "HELLO"..ANYBODY HOME UP THERE"?.

Update:

Yes, i agree.tv is bad for you.and yes, Obama has said terrorists only when his butt was on the line.

    Because Obama sees his heroes as " Freedom Fighters", not the vulgar word " Terrorist" that the infidels use to describe them. Allahu Akbar!

    Source(s): Common sense and observation of his actions. Shunning his supposed faith of Christianity to praise muslims, fighting muslim extremism like it's a tickle fight with a baby, and the middle name " Hussein" is a nice HINTHINT.

    That's a tired talking point from the right. In the case of Boston, there is no evidence that Islamic terrorists were involved so there is no reason for Obama to say there was. When the federal government designates an incident as terrorism, that commits certain federal resources to the investigation. The president, as head of the federal government, can't engage in idle speculation like he was some internet blogger or new reporter. His comments have real world impact. That's something his critics seem unable to understand. If he said the word terrorism today and not yesterday it's because he knows more about what happened today than he did yesterday. Adjusting thinking based on new information is another concept the right seems to have trouble with. Our last president seemed to have a real problem with that.

    I'm curious as to what you're implying. If Obama doesn't say the word, what does that mean to you? That he doesn't realize it's terror? Keeping in mind that this President has no problems killing terrorists like Bin Laden, please explain what this signifies to you. This seems to be something that Fox News and company love to harp on but what it signifies is absolutely nothing.

    It's a murderous act. Who cares if it's called terrorism? Terrorism in today's modern context implies murder of people by groups like al-Qaeda. We don't know if this was done by a foreign group or someone disturbed without a political cause.

    "TERRORIST" automatically leads to arabs, once it does that, people will start hating on the arabs once again. But that's not the thing, the press is usually stupid and sells you donuts live on TV, a good politician doesn't speak without knowing exactly. Remember he said the word "Terrorist" a lot of times, but those times, he knew what he was talking about.

    Because he is a man who uses words carefully. When unarmed citizens have been intentionally attacked, it is an act of terror by definition. Using the word adds no information, but thanks to his predecessor's careless use, it is inflammatory. (A "war" on terror?? How do you wage war against a 'tactic'?) Why is the word so meaningful to you?
