Obama Still Talking "Phony Scandals"... And Other News

At a staged town hall meeting in Minnesota yesterday President Obama basically told people not to pay attention to the news stories they hear that show him in a negative light.

Mr. Obama said that the story about Iraq was real but everything else was just "Washington infighting."

"They're fabricated issues, phony scandals," he said. "It's not on the level, and that must feel frustrating. It makes people cynical, and it makes people turned off from the idea that anything can get done."

"We've got a party on the other side whose only rationale, motivation seems to be opposing me," Mr. Obama said Thursday. "Despite all that, we're making progress."

As Ronald Reagan said to Jimmy Carter in that famous debate...  "There you go again."

President Obama knows that each and every one of the "scandals" throughout his administration are real and warranted. But he obviously (and maybe correctly) believes his followers do not have functioning thought processes when it comes to him and his administration. He thinks they will believe whatever he says - and in many cases that seems to be true. People in the audience cheered when the President said "we're making progress." Obviously they hand pick the audiences for these things but my question to the President is "What progress is that?"

Unemployment is still high. The workforce is still dwindling. The economy sucks. The GDP dropped nearly 3% last quarter. Iraq is being overrun by terrorists after we liberated it and walked away. Oh - and computers all over your administration are crashing every time Congress subpoenas information from them. (The latest being an EPA computer that contained e-mails of a former EPA official subpoenaed by Congress.) Apparently the major cause of computer hard drive failure in your administration is a subpoena...

It seems the tide of mindless loyalty may be turning, however. A recent poll shows that 70% of voting Americans, including 52% of Democrats, believe the IRS deliberately destroyed e-mail evidence that was subpoenaed by Congress. That's a majority of voting Democrats albeit, a small majority. And you still tell your blind followers it's a "phony scandal." Mr. President - you become more unbelievable every day.

Changing the subject - let's take a look at what used to be our Southern border. Right now the border seems to have been erased and people, including unaccompanied children, are streaming into the country. The government's answer to the problem is to increase border security, right? Oh, no. The government's solution is to put all of these people on planes and buses, take them to various cities around the country and drop them off with a promise that they will report to an immigration court on a certain date for a hearing. Yeah - that's brilliant. And it'll work....  not.

Those illegals who are actually housed are packed like sardines in detention centers and warehouses with few supplies and only a blanket and a space on the floor to sleep. And still they come across the border. The government just doesn't seem to understand the principle that before you can clean up the mess of a flood you have to stop the flow of water. Duh.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto recently said he is "indignant" over the deportation of Mexican migrants back to Mexico and said U.S. lawmakers show a "lack of conscience" in failing to pass immigration reform.

Really? Well, Mr. Mexican President - who cares what you think? You leave your borders open for people from Central and South America to cross freely on their way to the United States but if an American citizen accidentally crosses your border from the United States you throw him in prison. Your indignation about deportations of Mexican citizens in our country illegal is pretty ludicrous considering you don't bother to control your own borders (except against Americans.) And since your entire country is being overrun by drug cartels and you seem helpless (or clueless) to do anything about it - who are you to criticize anyone?

Want to stop deportations of Mexicans back into your country, Mr. Pena Nieto? Then stop them from coming to the United States in the first place! And close your Southern border to stop the army ant-like flow of illegals from using your country as a highway to the U.S.

And while you're at it - release Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi and let him come home. He's done nothing to deserve being in prison so long. You're whining about the U.S. deporting your citizens who are intentionally entering our country illegally but you won't deport one U.S. Marine who wandered into Mexico by mistake?

Hey - I have an idea...  Show President Obama that two can play the deportation game. Deport Sgt.Tahmooressi back to the U.S.A.right away! That'll show us who's boss!
