Obama Refuses Perry's Letter

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 In January, when the Bush tax cuts are rescinded, it will get worse.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.

    I was trying to do my best Rodney King.

    Let’s consider a sports analogy. You play hockey and at a certain point in the game, you decide to slash or high-stick an opponent. The referee, if he sees it, is going to hammer you with a penalty. He is not going to say “it’s not for me to judge.” And the game would dissolve into chaos if that were the way it worked. You may be right that it’s primarily for the clergy to issue corrections, but we’re all the People of God now I believe and, once in a while, we need to speak out. In that hockey example, the player who highsticks or slashes stands a very good chance of peer correction in a very harsh way.

    As a “catholic” I believe that the desecration of the Sacrament is no big deal because it’s not really the body and blood of Christ.

    See that? I’m still “catholic”.

    CATHOLIC: It’s the new little black dress. It goes with everything!

    Obama today pronounced that Islam “has always been a part of America.”

    What kind of dope is he smoking.

    Yoram Ettinger:

    President Obama was right when he declared that “Islam has always been part of America’s story.” Indeed, Islamic terrorism targeted US ships between 1776 and the beginning of the 19th century. In fact, John Quincy Adams, the 6th president of the USA, researched the causes of anti-Western Islamic terrorism, concluding that its core cause was endemic hostility toward the “infidel.”

    Diane, good for you.

    To add.

    What bothers me is the ignorance of religion in the face of truth and progress. For example, they fight Roe vs Wade as an antiabortion issue which it is not. It is an interpretation of a right to privacy issue. Second and most importantly, they fail to realize that the best way to deal with the problem of abortion which is to deal with it before it occurs. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Example, states in the bible belt have the lowest high school graduation rates, and students with the highest pregnancy rates. I wonder how long it it going to take before the little light goes off in their brains with the realization that they have been approaching the majority of the problem from the wrong angle over the last 40 years. The GOP really put one over on the christian suckers on the abortion issue. They sold them their little lie, hook, line and sinker.
