Texas Governor Rick Perry has invited President Obama to come down to the US/Mexican border and see first hand the human crisis his irresponsible policies have created. Although Obama will be in the area on yet another fundraising trip, he says he can’t be bothered to accept Perry’s invitation.
“Right now there is no plan to visit the border. The president’s getting regular updates on the situation,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
It doesn’t seem like that big of a deal for Obama to go down to the border. He’s already going to be in Dallas and Austin. He could easily hop on Marine One, check out the crisis, and be back in time for a round of golf and rich people schmoozing.
Gov. Perry is equally confused by the Presdient’s snubbing of his invitation.
“If the president of the United States is really serious about securing that border, we can show him how to do that. But I haven’t even had a phone call from this president,” said Perry.
But that is going under the assumption that Obama really wants to fix the growing crisis of unattended illegal immigrant children flooding into this country. Obama, instead, is using this as a platform to push his amnesty agenda.
Press secretary Earnest said, “the most important thing [people in border states] can do is not to offer public invitations but to lend their public support to comprehensive immigration reform.”
Is it just me or did that come off really bitchy?
“The president’s getting regular updates on the situation,” added Earnest.
Really? Obama is getting updates? Usually he likes to keep himself out of the loop so he can claim innocence at any possible hearing or investigation that might arise. Remember how blissfully ignorant of the VA scandal, the IRS scandal, and Benghazi he was?
At least three times this week Obama has chided the Republicans for doing nothing while he, the self-appointed emperor, has been forging ahead on his own. From where I sit, the only thing this guy does is fly from fundraiser to fundraiser all on the taxpayer’s dime. He doesn’t even pretend to do anything presidential. If he had an ounce of integrity, he would go down to one of the immigration facilities and see what’s really going on. Notice how I said “if.”
As for the “do nothing” Republicans, they actually are doing quite a lot. They are chairing committees and launching investigations into the vast array of Obama administration scandals. Just because they aren’t passing his socialist pet programs doesn’t mean they aren’t doing anything. If Obama wants more legislative action from Congress he should stop distracting them with illegal unconstitutional activities and try serving the country with honor.
