Obama Heads To Texas With No Plans To Visit Border





” For President Barack Obama, the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is increasingly becoming a political liability, giving Republicans a fresh opportunity to question his administration’s competence and complicating the debate over the nation’s fractured immigration laws.

  Still, Obama is resisting calls to visit the border during his two-day fundraising trip to Texas, where he arrives late Wednesday afternoon. Instead, Obama will hold a meeting hundreds of miles away in Dallas to discuss the crisis with faith leaders and Texas officials, including Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

  Obama’s trip comes one day after he asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to get more resources to the border.”



* We use the scare quotes around the word “border” because the “border” essentially no longer exists . If the theoretical line in the sand can be crossed with impunity then it is not a “border” which is defined as:

” the line that separates one country, state, province, etc., from another; frontier line: You cannot cross the   border without a visa.”

   Even members of his own party are starting to question his desire to deal with the “humanitarian” crisis of his own creation …

” Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, raised the prospect that Obama’s failure to take a firsthand look at the border crisis could be akin to former President George W. Bush viewing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina from the air instead of on the ground.”

    The only problem with Rep Cuellar’s comparison of the illegal immigrant crisis with Bush’s Katrina moment is the fact that in Bush’s case the press had a desire to embarrass the administration whilein Obama’s case they are doing everything within their power to protect him from the same sort of scrutiny .

Mark Halperin of Time :

“Romney also has the luxury of an open schedule. Although without the gilded mantle of the presidency, he can spend every waking hour as a full-time candidate, while the President is required to do his day job.”

Could have fooled me . Since when has Obama been concerned about the job he and the bootlick media got him hired  to do ? I mean between the golfing and the fund raisers and the vacations and the TV appearances tell me when exactly does he find the time to do his “day” job ? What exactly is his ‘day’ job ? Would that be accepting unearned prizes ? Or perhaps we pay him to be a salesman for his Chicago pals ? Let me know when we have a man ready to step into the shoes of the presidency , until then on with the perpetual ” Obama for King ” campaign .
