BOSTON MARATHON-POLITICAL RESPONSE
A year later, little government response to Boston bombing as politics of terrorism shift

There's little evidence of any lasting impact on the political world a year after the terrorist bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Polls suggest voters have little appetite for a renewed focus on national security after a decade of anti-terrorism efforts — plus wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — that consumed tremendous public resources.
