I will not fear Pio as long as white, non-muslim men from Canada continue to be far less of a security risk than a military-aged male from Afghanistan.

Now we're getting somewhere. I wish more liberals would admit this. The U.S. government has no obligation to save the life of someone living in Somalia. It has an explicit obligation to protect the lives of its own citizens. And in fact, any government official importing refugees under the twisted logic that 1,000 dead in a terrorist attack < 100,000 imported refugees should be hung.
Liberals are tripping over themselves and the bodies of people killed by terrorism in a race to prove how non-racist and enlightened they've become. The ones most vocal about how virtuous they are don't have to live with the consequences of their ambitions - they have armed security, send their kids to private schools, fly privately and live behind walls and gates (the non-racist kind of wall).
Apparently the suspect responsible for these bombings hated gay people which, if you haven't noticed, is sort of a big thing among Muslims in Afghanistan. Unfortunately for the LGBT community, in the hierarchy of political correctness Muslim trumps gay.

3. 2 months from now when people are voting, they won't remember any of it.
If this had been a 9/11 like attack, maybe that would change the electoral outcome, but not these incidents.
I doubt it, and if she tries it's going to be a tough sell considering she's campaigned against that this entire time, and Obama has governed against any such common sense for 8 years. A more gifted politician might be able to do it under different circumstances. Too many people don't trust her and she sucks at public speaking.
