Obama: Boston capture closes out a ‘tough week’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barak Obama and Republicans used their weekly addresses to celebrate the resolve Americans demonstrated after the attack on the Boston Marathon.

Obama says “the world has witnessed one sure and steadfast truth: Americans refuse to be terrorized.”

In the Republican address, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina praised the first responders as “amazing Americans, some of whom charged through fences and barricades.” He says they “put their own lives on the line to help others.”

Both addresses were recorded before yesterday’s tension-filled capture of the surviving suspect.
