Two things, first…
- Nobody- nobody ever in the future- should EVER run for office promising “solutions” (not that Hope and Change were “solutions”) when in fact your favorite saying after taking office is: “I inherited…”
- I have said many times on this blog that this man was not ready for prime time. But most of you that read this blog KNOW/knew that already.
If Aliens came to this planet and said “Take me to your leader”, well… most of us would have to shrug and wonder what the hell they were talking about. “We don’t really have one. But, we DO have a guy that said he could change it all, and blames everyone else for his inability to do so…”
Barry is now under a flood of negative information. Unemployment. Economy. Terror attacks increasing under his watch. Expansion of government power grabs. Trying to buy Sestak out of the race against Specter. The gulf oil disaster.
If you listen to his advisors, it is no wonder why we don’t make progress. They all blame everyone else. And, yes of course, Bush comes up often…
And yes, Barry now has his own Katrina. He didn’t create it. He failed to solve it. And the ramifications of the oil spill are going to be around for DECADES.
But what I really want to focus on today is Barry’s response today to Republicans complaining that the administration is not doing enough on the southern border with Mexico.
Barry had a rare meeting behind closed doors with Republicans today. I say rare, to remind everyone that any kind of open, transparent meeting is rare in the first place with this ass who claimed he would have the “most transparent” administration in history (lie), but that he would also try to change the partisan nature of Washington. This meeting with Republicans today was NOT an olive branch. It was not “bi-partisanship”. It was something else completely. What exactly is “was” in a minute. Let’s recap first.
Today in his meeting behind closed doors with Republicans, Republicans basically called him out on the AZ law. They told him he was irresponsible for mischaracterizing the reality of the text of the law. During this conversation, he bristled, and said little. The Republicans requested a large amount of troops be added to the border, as well as more money to aid the problem. Not ONCE did Barry talk about anything that was “in the works” from the White House on the issue.
He then left, and shortly, ever so shortly thereafter, the White House announced that they would be increasing the money spent on the border and the troop level. $500 million, and 1200 troops.
WHY did Barry do this?
FIRST off, this PROVES that this colossal asshole has the POWER to at ANY TIME increase the intensity on the border in order to secure it. And we all know, in fact, it is the RESPONSIBILITY of the Federal Government to do so… Period.
But what does it reeeeealllly say?
This man is a politically clever ass who thinks of himself and his party first. Why do I say that?
Because he did NOT acknowledge that the White House had already planned such a thing, he insulates himself and the left from the ramifications from the left and hispanics that HE ever had a plan. His meeting with the right shows he really wanted political cover for the action. Blame the Republicans, I was just trying to be “bipartisan”. How do we know this?
Because – as I said, Barry never told the Republicans when they asked for these things, that he already had a plan. NO President comes out of a meeting like this with the opposition and enacts a decision like this within hours without already knowing where he wanted to go with this. He needed Republicans for cover. He used them to allow him to cover his ass for the minimal move he already had planned.
He did not give the Republicans the level of support they wanted, so he has that “excuse” as well. “I was bipartisan, and I offered an olive branch to the right even though I knew it was not the whole solution.” If he reeeeealllly wanted to solve this, he would understand that half measures and backroom deals that are halfheartedly implemented will NOT solve the problem, but rather serve his political needs…
This is not leadership.
2,600-3,000 illegal crossings PER DAY in ONE county in AZ… PER DAY… 1200 troops? Over the WHOLE border, not just AZ?
We don’t give a DAMN about what you “inherited”… We give a damn about what you can DO. PERIOD.
Mr. President. SEAL the border. LEAD.
