"Obama's Illegal Immigration 'Tantrum'"
Good morning dear reader;
Despite my antagonism against any politician catering to illegals for voter support, I couldn't help but be bemused by President Obama's recent trek down to El Paso to, rather than kissing babies, opting to kiss Hispanic "behinds".
Obama knows full well that, in order to legalize 30 million illegals, he'll need the approval of Congress. The last time I looked Congress was in session in Washington, D.C. and not El Paso, Texas. Rather than deal with the issue with the House and Senate, Obama has opted to "throw a tantrum" down in Texas. As I wrote in an earlier blog, "Obama, Naive Child of Wonder", Obama continues his "child-like" Presidency. We need only go back to early in his term when he ceded leadership to Reid and Pelosi to implement the massive and fraudulent and ineffective trillion dollar "stimulus" program. Further, as he sat in the Oval Office "playing President" Pelosi and Reid hammered out a 2,300 page healthcare bill that did nothing to improve the efficiency or cost effectiveness of our health care system.
When really pressed into a corner, as Obama was after failing to act after the BP oil spill, Obama finally flew down to the Gulf Coast, rolled up his trousers, walked along the beaches and railed against the entire oil industry, guilty and innocent alike. Gathering up his courage and inspired by an old Reverend Wright diatribe, Obama threw a tantrum in hopes that Americans could see that he was "feeling their pain".
He then stomped back to Washington D.C. and, in pouting petulance, stopped all off-shore drilling, even for those oil companies who installed the latest, technologically advanced capping systems.
Now, Obama is frustrated by all the Hispanic backlash because he failed to keep his campaign promise to legalize the invaders in his first year in office. Rather than having an "adult" discussion with members of Congress, Obama, in keeping with his child Presidency, flew down to El Paso, and in his best community organizer voice, screamed out a tantrum while ignoring every negative point of illegal immigration.
I, personally, can't wait until we once again have an "adult" in the White house.
