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.

The nation’s highest immigration court has found for the first time that women who are victims of severe domestic violence in their home countries can be eligible for asylum in the United States. The decision on Tuesday by the Board of Immigration Appeals in the case of a battered wife from Guatemala resolved nearly two decades of hard-fought legal battles over whether such women could be considered victims of persecution. The ruling could slow the pace of deportations from the Southwest border, because it creates new legal grounds for women from Central America caught entering the country illegally in the surge this summer

In a polarized region and a complicated world, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria presents a unifying threat to a broad array of countries, including the United States. What’s needed to confront its nihilistic vision and genocidal agenda is a global coalition using political, humanitarian, economic, law enforcement and intelligence tools to support military force. In addition to its beheadings, crucifixions and other acts of sheer evil, which have killed thousands of innocents in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, including Sunni Muslims whose faith it purports to represent, ISIS (which the United States government calls ISIL,

After more than three years, almost 200,000 dead in Syria, the near collapse of Iraq, and the rise of the world’s most sinister terrorist army — the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which has conquered vast swaths of both countries — President Obama’s admission this week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to deal with this threat is startling. It is also dangerous. The president clearly wants to move deliberately and consult with allies and Congress as he considers what to do about ISIS. No one disputes that goal. But the threat ISIS poses only grows over time. It cannot be contained. It must be confronted. This requires a comprehensive strategy,

One of two football players convicted of raping a teenage girl in a case that made headlines around the globe, Mr. Richmond served a year in a juvenile detention facility and must register as a sex offender.

Ramallah, West Bank - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas blamed Hamas on Friday for extending fighting with Israel in the Gaza Strip, casting doubt on the future of the Palestinian unity government that the Islamic militant group backs, while Israel´s premier said the end of the war could mark resumption of peace talks with Abbas. Benjamin Netanyahu stressed that it is still early to tell "if the new reality" would allow a political process to resume but said he is examining the possibility. (Snip) Several Egyptian mediated cease-fire attempts during the conflict failed. Hamas eventually accepted almost the same truce offered at the beginning.

Washington - Jimmy Carter is scheduled to be the keynote speaker this weekend at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). (Snip) Carter raised eyebrows recently by calling Hamas a legitimate Palestinian political group that Israel and the United States should recognize. Hamas is designated by the US State Department as a terrorist organization, and the group´s founding charter calls for the destruction of Israel. But it’s important to note upfront that ISNA is not Hamas. It’s one of the most prominent umbrella groups representing American Muslims, the vast majority of whom are law-abiding citizens.

It shows a cruel masked killer standing behind the captured fighter before the murder. Two more jihadists hold guns next to him.

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in
