New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent elected on the Republican line, actually engaged in some Obamaesque speculation about the attempted bombing, NewsBusters.org reports. Asked by CBS's Katie Couric if the attack was "a home-grown," the mayor replied: "Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything."
