The White House is making a very bad mistake when it comes to their attitude towards the border, as witnessed by this interview snippet featuring DEMOCRATIC Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas. Background is, somebody from the White House called to complain to Cuellar about his call for the White House to do more about the current border crisis.
“Who called you?” [Fox & Friends] host Brian Kilmeade asked.
“We’ll just leave it like that,” Cuellar responded.
“Did they tell you to pipe down?” Kilmeade pressed again.
“We’ll just leave it like that,” the congressman repeated. “But notice what I’m doing: I’m still talking about it.”
Rep. Cuellar is kind of a mixed bag on the issues generally, but he is not an immigration hardliner. The administration should have gone into full crisis mode the moment the Congressman made clear that he wouldn’t be providing useful cover to Barack Obama on this one. That they did not… doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. Frankly, Barack Obama is not as good at domestic policy as his opponents think that he is, let alone his supporters.
PS: Oh, to be a fly on the wall for this conversation between Obama and Texas Governor Rick Perry. Dagnabbit, if only Perry was ten years younger (I do think that he’s learned the proper lessons from the last campaign, actually).
PS: Hot Air reminds of us of the President’s priorities.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES So I’m getting a lot of emails from people – some friendly, some hostile – asking “what’s next” for the #NeverTrump movement. Quite frankly, I’m puzzled at the question. I mean, the entire meaning of the phrase was intended to convey that we would never vote for Trump, at any time, for any reason. It’s rather unambiguous, the word | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Ted Cruz has finally thrown in the towel, announcing from Indiana that he is suspending his campaign.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES In the over-looked Democratic Primary in Indiana, Bernie Sanders has pulled out a big win over Hillary Clinton. Sanders is staying in the race, which makes him little more than a nuisance to Clinton, but it is a very noticeable nuisance. With the win, Sanders now has a good reason to stay in the race even longer. The Vermont | Read More »
