Why Isn´t Obama Going to the Border?
National Journal, by James Oliphant & George E. Condon Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/7/2014 4:45:57 PM

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.

Comments:
The simple answer to the headline is, as an illegal alien himself, the border patrol might not let him back in.

His Secret Service detail can´t protect him from contagious, communicable diseases like tuberculosis and God knows what else these illegal aliens are bringing over the border. Ft. Belvoir´s golf course is more to Zero´s liking. He also likes that the Border Patrol has seen its traditional duties usurped in favor of babysitting. This fellow ought to be pitched headlong from the Oval Office.

Does the man seriously believe that if he doesn´t show up on the border, no one will believe him responsible for the chaos? In Klein´s book, he quotes Jarrett as saying Obama has trouble staying focused, that he would rather surprise people with his dazzling intellect.

What? Clinton loved to be the smartest person in the room, too, but at least we could depend that Clinton understood the issues.

"Why Isn´t Obama Going to the Border?"

Simple...by orchestrating this kidnapping of Mexican children from the WH, Obie avoids the appearance of owning the issue. He wants to let the issue fester for a while and together with the msm´s help, apply pressure to the pubbies in hopes that Boehner and McConnell et al will cave and support amnesty.

Meanwhile, us commoners have to pick up the slack and confront the buses and federal agents. Will be amazed if no one is killed by the gummint during this crackdown against the people.

Obama does not associate with those kinds of people. If you are not able to donate huge sums of money to him, he has no use for you. Surely, you don´t expect Obama to mingle with the great unwashed. Anytime he has to interact with the regular folk he is so uncomfortable it is painful to watch. Standing before the influential and monied crowd is more his speed. He likes to harangue the opposition from a position of opulence and privilege. He uses children, he does not need to associate with them.

At this late date, anyone who continues to refer to President Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. (no relation to Sammy!) as an illegal alien must truly be blind, as Honolulu-born Liar is a dead-ringer for the guy his own "autobiography" refers to as "Pops."

Besides, for 17 years, Liar himself stated in his publicity package that he was Kenyan-born (in order to scam the system). Is this not enough to convince us that Liar was NOT Kenyan-born?

Sheesh!

TOP FIVE REASONS
5) No good golf courses there.
4) If he hit a ball and accidentally chased it into Mexico, Biden would make no effort to arrange for his return either.
3) Perry might ask him to complete the fence.
2) He might have to hold a baby that needed a diaper change.
1) It´s too dangerous due to his order that the Feds cannot return gunfire.

He´s not going for a couple of reasons:
1. He´s still a smoker and that makes you more prone to catch airbourne illnesses like TB.
2. Even though it´s his mess he thinks that he´s too good to see what he´s wrought.
3. No golf courses or Subways to be noticed at by the LOFOs
4. Too many fundraisers to attend in Texas.
5. Governor Perry has already made him look like the idiot that he is why add more fuel to the fire. Oh to be a fly on that meeting wall.

Like all of his other "devious" plans, this one also blew up in barry´s face. We were supposed to act stupid and not question why thousands of Central American children suddenly appeared at the Texas border. They obviously all developed a thirst for freedom at the same time. We were supposed to open up our hearts, arms and wallets and welcome the poor things in. Little do they know that becoming a U.S. citizen will give them less freedom in the new obama world. Now he can´t face the dilemma that he caused, ChickenShiite PINO.

Last week Obe demanded congress give him 2 billion to handle the mess --Today he upped it to 3 billion.
He won´t go to the border because he is afraid.
With the lack of the real border guards working their real jobs his security couldn´t tell friend from cartel assassins. with probable left over Fast and Furious donated heavy fire power they could line up just over the border and he would have nowhere to hide --not even behind a bullet proof glass shelter.
Worse yet some of those older illegal Immigrants( what a moron label that is) could be part of those cartels. Their youngest hit man was after all 14 years old.
Obe should just run back to the WH and stay there.

In December 2013, when Vladimir Putin released Mikhail Khodorkovsky from prison after 10 years, the former oil tycoon and political prisoner said he would not enter politics. Only months later, however, he is spending millions to build a new political infrastructure to prepare for what he says is the inevitable fall of Putin’s regime. “When I left prison, I announced that I am not interested in engaging in politics. I never promised anyone I wouldn’t engage in it and I continue to be not interested in engaging in it,” Khodorkovsky told The Daily Beast in an interview in Washington. “At the same time, I feel it imperative to

CDC officials have rushed to Newark Liberty International Airport after a passenger believed to be from Liberia showed symptoms of Ebola. The man traveling with his daughter on a United Airlines flight from Brussels was reported vomiting as they landed in New Jersey at 1.50pm. They were both removed from the plane by a CDC crew in full Hazmat attire. It comes as the Ebola patient in Texas is said to have deteriorated to a ´critical´ condition.

Biden spoke directly to Erdogan to “clarify” comments made on Thursday at Harvard University and apologized for “any implication" that Turkey or other allies had intentionally supplied or helped in the growth of the Islamic State or other extremists groups in Syria, the White House said.

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1.

Turkey approves military operations

Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola
