thegreek - As you've pointed out, Obama is NOW asking for multiple billions of dollars to "solve the problem". Shawn Moran (Vice President Border Patrol Council) said that when the BP requested funding north of $100,000,000 for increased enforcement along the border, they were rejected. The Border Patrol is a segment of the Department of Homeland Security, so it would seem logical that it was a functionary of Barack Obama's that wouldn't push for the funding request.
Here's where Kendall steps in and reminds us that HHS possibly turned down a shipment of peanut butter going to some school 20 years ago.
"I expect my representative to tell him to..."
Hey...it would be nice if the Reps in both political parties would do something. If Obama is wrong, then I wish the Reps would grow a pair and do something instead of worrying about reelections.
And if it turns out that his plan is the right thing to do, I wish they would put their egos aside and approve it.
" It is unbelieveable that someone would stand up for a president.."
You have some huge blinders on don't you? I have not stand up for any of the President's policies now have I? All I have done is do the sinful act of trying to be realistic and moderate.
"I would say your tax money ken but most Obama worshipers dont pay any tax."
You are so deluded.
"Oh I have done research. That is why I never voted for him and only hope that you spoiled brats that did.."
We have that in common Greek....I never voted for him either.
"all of Obama's sins are forgiven for what Reagan may have done. Does it change anything?"
I don't care about whether you or anyone else forgives him for anything. We have laws and justice that should see to that.
All I want is for the political drama queens around here to stop acting like Obama is doing something that is so uniquely wrong that no other person ever did anything like it.
There is nothing wrong with the President playing pool, riding a horse, drinking a beer, chopping wood and other things. Why? Because he has a freaking staff that is in contact with him at all times. Only a fool would think that if the President is playing pool for a few minutes that he must be completely out of touch with the world.
"that wants to point to the wrongdoing of others,"
You are being rather dense Kun. Have I tried to say Obama is good because of the bad other Presidents have done? No I haven't. Leave the drama behind you, it would do you good.
"in order to justify the righteousness of continued, unpunished and unaccountable actions of someone he/she obviously idolizes."
HAHA...I don't idolize Obama. I just realize he is a person and not the spawn of Satan that many on the Far Right wishes he was.
If he goes unpunished, it is Congress's fault. If he has done something actually wrong, then Congress needs to put their big boy pants on and do their job.
I'd suggest a branking iron on the forehead that says "dont come back to the USA".. We send our kids there they decapitate them and put it on YOUTUBE !!!
AND He goes to Texas meets with Perry, coms up with a figure of 3.7 BILLION that HE and the Dems need to solve this problem. !! Where did he get that number??? And then in the middle of the speech starts slaying the repubs for NOT comprimising ??? Dictator says he needs 3.7 Billion blank check. I expect my representative to tell him to stick his head up a donkeys arse !!
Now if Obama, Pelosi and Reid would take their personal fortune and fly over and drop it on us that would be different. But since they are hogs, they aint gonna do it only with my tax money and kunects tax money. I would say your tax money ken but most Obama worshipers dont pay any tax. 47 PERCENT RECEIVE !!
Oh I have done research. That is why I never voted for him and only hope that you spoiled brats that did will not be the cause of the downfall of the country because of your blindness and willingness to take all them TAXPAYERS "gold coins that fall out of the sky" as you said. I know Kunect. Thanks for the advice but I get seriously tired of this lame mentality as you do also so I argue. It is unbelieveable that someone would stand up for a president that is so inept, but is likeable because he smiles and is cordial. I like Obama as a person. I have said he would make a great sports or movie star but as a leader, he cannot take action to solve anything at all. Hasnt yet in 6 years and aint gonna cause he is not a business leader like Romney or a leader at all.
thegreek - You may do as you like but I see no logic in trying to argue with a mental derelict that wants to point to the wrongdoing of others, from years past and under very different circumstances, in order to justify the righteousness of continued, unpunished and unaccountable actions of someone he/she obviously idolizes. Doesn't that practice scream out immaturity and irresponsibility?
Little Susie says "Look mommy, I know you caught me taking a cookie and it was wrong for me to do it, but Billy took one last month".
Kendall78 says - "...but it was ok for Reagan to ride a horse or shake hands with West Virginians during the Cold War?"
OK Kendall, all of Obama's sins are forgiven for what Reagan may have done. Does it change anything?
I have, now you may go and do some.
I just don't see the point in trying to make it out as if he is the worse thing ever.
Do some research.
"Congress is getting pretty fed up. I would say they gonna hammer him soon."
HAHA...yeah real fed up. The Dems are going to hide from Obama so they can get reelected. It doesn't matter if they actually hate him or love him..it's good politics.
Look at Bush during his last 2 years, the Republicans wanted nothing to do with him if they were running for reelection.
The Republicans do NOT want Obama to leave by impeachment. They want to tie Obama like a dead Albotross around the necks of the Dems for the next 2 years.
"WHY you people defend him appalls me."
I haven't once said that Obama is doing a good job. I just don't see the point in trying to make it out as if he is the worse thing ever. I argued against the Left when they tried to do it to Bush and I will do it against the Right that tries to do it to Obama.
Obama isn't the first President to make mistakes and he won't be the last. Many of our problems are political illusions that are made worse by people that don't look at things in context.
I swear, Obama could have a plane fly over WV and drop solid gold coins for the people and there would be those that would curse him because a coin hit them in the head and hurt. From a political POV, Obama is doing the right thing by ignoring all the irrational haters. Bush learned that trick too and ignored the Far Left and still did his thing.
Congress is getting pretty fed up. I would say they gonna hammer him soon. GONG. Look it up.. He has broken the ACA for starters. He doesnt like a law he doesnt enforce it. You brought up use of Executive Orders. His CONTENT of his orders is the problem. Control this, control that. Far cry from pardoning some people or sending money and relief to South Africa !! And bragging to the constituents that he will use his pen and phone... PHHHFFTTT .. Nonsense !!! You need to do some unbiased research but you wont believe your own lying eyes so forget it. Yeah everythings fine. In November I will say, I dont know what happened cause all the Dems got ousted!
"not lift a finger by way of sanctions on Mexico for holding one of our service men."
What kind of message is that to send the world? It's ok for us to hold people from other nations without trial for years and years in Gitmo but don't you dare hold one of our people because he might have broken one of your laws. Oh...he's a marine..of course he should get extra good treatment.
That US Citizen is about to get a trial and it only took a few months. We have foreign nationals in Gitmo for years without trial. How the heck can you say we should put sanctions on Mexico for them enforcing their own laws.
WHY you people defend him appalls me.
Greek- if he is violating his oath so badly, why hasn't Congress did anything about it? Why hasn't the Surpreme Court?
Could it be because he hasn't broken the law?
The laws of this nation is not so cut and dry as people want it to be. As head of the Executive Branch, Obama has the right to use the Executive Order and Congress has the right to smack him down if he is wrong.
"NO, You idiot! It's Tony Blair!"
