What Part Of ‘There Will Be Blood’ Is Open To Interpretation?

Yesterday a Michigan lawmaker declared “There will be blood” in response to the passage of right-to-work laws in the state. White House spokesman Jay Carney was asked if the administration condemns such a remark, and Carney refused to do so, saying it was open to interpretation.

“The president believes in debate that’s civil,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today. “I haven’t seen those comments and I’m not sure that they mean what some would interpret them to mean. I just haven’t seen them.”
