What kind of president is this?
All hat, no cattle
Gov. Rick Perry’s meeting at the Austin airport with President Barack Obama on border security lasted a mere 34 seconds, and Perry had to hand a letter on the issue to presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett because Obama declined to personally accept it.
That did not dissuade the governor from inviting Obama to come back to Texas and tour the border with him to get a first hand look at what Perry describes as the threat from Mexican drug cartels.
“Look, he’s got the letter. I suspect he’ll read it. I hope he responds to it,” Perry said. “This is way past partisanship or politics.”
Perry said Obama’s decision to send 1,200 troops to the entire border with Mexico was inadequate, particularly since only 286 are coming to Texas.
I guess it’s a president who believes he is a prince, not an executive, a president who thinks he is supposed to rule, rather than lead, and a president who dares not accept a letter from a Governor because then he won’t be able to say he never read it or hasn’t seen it.
And once again, one senses that Obama only wants to be the president of some of the nation, not all of it.
I don’t think he wants to be president, at all, frankly. And if that is true, I wish he’d stop, and resign, already. My younger son just lost his job yesterday, and since he wasn’t a public employee, no one currently in power will care about that, or about the fact that now both of my kids are out of work. But I care. The middle class squeeze is already on, over here. In January, when the Bush tax cuts are rescinded, it will get worse.
“Remaking America,” indeed!
This won’t help, btw.
