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 Last night after the debate, CNN continued their embarrassing butt-covering campaign regarding the Carsongate fiasco. The essential issue in this story is that the people who are attacking Ted Cruz on this (including Ben Carson) are intentionally conflating a series of tweets that were sent by CNN reporter Chris Moody, and what was said on air by CNN anchors Jake Tapper | Read More »

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sen. Ted Cruz won the New Hampshire GOP debate. Cruz managed to stay above the hand to hand combat between the desperate governors and Sen Marco Rubio and Donald Trump. He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats’ eventual nominee. | Read More »
