How many times did he say it?
And then, without warning, Obama finds himself impotent. It struck without warning. He’s gone limp.
The guy who was boldly going where no Congress would go with him. The guy who was going it alone. The guy who is going to “Let it rip.” has inexplicably and suddenly found himself completely impotent. All of a sudden he can’t act alone. He can’t stop the invasion. The guy who ignores all the laws he that don’t suit him decides not to protect our borders.
Make no mistake. We are being held hostage. We are being threatened.
Obama has issued a warning to this country that we must give him what he wants. Or else. In reply to an amnesty activist heckling him Obama said ‘I’m on your side, man!.’
Obama proved that he is the liar many of us said he is. He warns us that he is going to take off his mask:
“I don’t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,”
The guy who has spent his entire life mocking the GOP and anyone in his opposition is now going to “let it rip.”
As if he hasn’t been doing that the entire time he’s been in office.
Obama claims he’s impotent to act without action from Congress. The brain dead (that is to say, Obama voters) do not understand that the $3.7 billion of taxpayer money Obama is demanding has virtually nothing in it for border security. The money goes primarily to housing, food and legal representation for the invaders- to help them fight deportation.
Meanwhile, Mexico and Guatemala are working together with Obama to smooth the illegal invasion. The latino MS-13 gang is reportedly actively recruiting more members from the ranks of the illegal invaders.
For all his bloviating, he has not once demanded that Central American countries stop the migration of illegals north. That would cost nothing. Obama has, as Rich Lowry states, created his own “man-caused disaster”:
The White House brushes off criticism that Obama is avoiding the border as mere “optics,” in contrast to its highly substantive focus. But it is still not taking the crisis seriously.
In a letter to Texas governor Rick Perry, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett downgraded the erstwhile “humanitarian crisis” on the border (the president’s words) to an “urgent humanitarian situation.” When pressed on the shift in verbiage, ever-judicious White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained that it is both a crisis and a situation. Yes, it’s that bad.
It’s gotten so bad that even Peggy Noonan sees the Machiavellian calculus:
How cold do you have to be to use children in this way?
Obama spent time in Texas raising money for the DNC, drinking beer and playing pool while dodging responsibility at the border. He spoke to what was described as “an adoring crowd” in Austin, the liberal bastion in an otherwise sensible state. Looking for adoration among illegal aliens and amnesty activists may be useful for pleasuring one’s ego, but it is not governing. It is campaigning. Obama has never been much good at governing.

Good points. It’s a shame that when it comes to securing our borders, Obama is impotent. It’s a shame America doesn’t have a President whose interest is America.
It’s no longer just a punch line.
