Poll: 59% blame Obama for flood of child border crossings
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 06/30/2014 | John Merline

Posted on 07/01/2014 5:11:12 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer

The public largely blames President Obama for the flood of children who have poured over the border in recent weeks, creating a growing humanitarian crisis, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll released Monday.

The late June survey found that the public largely blames Obama policies for the crisis in Iraq and believes the lost IRS emails are an administration effort to cover up wrongdoing at the agency.

The poll found that 59% of those closely following the immigration crisis agree that "current administration policies and lack of focus on securing the border" are behind the human tide of illegal crossings. Six in 10 say ...

Poll: 95% of the filthy, ignorant, sub-human filth who blame him would vote for him for the rest of their lives if they could.

The citizens know he has issued orders to ICE to back off to intentionally create this very situation. Now that its here, its the Republicans fault for not passing laws to fund and fix immigration.

We’re not all that stupid.

We saw what you did there.

With Obama, terrorists before all Americans.

With Obama, criminals before all Americans.

With Obama, Iranians before all Americans.

With Obama, illegals before all Americans.

The most compelling questions: how did so many get here so quickly? Where did their "impoverished elders" get the $8000 cash to transport them here? Did they have "inside info"...did they have guarantees that they'd be riding the US gravy train once they crossed the "border"?....

Illegals Central America trek---they had lotsa help.

Of course he is responsible you don’t need no stinkin’ Poll.

Polls did nothing to prevent his election then his reelection. Polls are never ever to be trusted.

Only 59%, eh?

What the hell ELSE could they blame.. glo-bull warming? The TEA Party? The Koch brothers? Sarah Palin?

If Americans actually had sufficient cranial activity, this number would be near 100%.

With $5-$6 billion missing from Hillary’s state dept., Hilary can create a lot of havoc with that amount of money to get herself into the WH.

“If Americans actually had sufficient cranial activity, this number would be near 100%.”

That would be to presume that a far greater ratio of denizens of that territory once known as “the United States of America” actually considered themselves to be “Americans”, than is the actual case.

This country has been afflicted with a growing number of “Americans in name only” for many decades now and it threatens to become a permanent majority. I have long advocated the formation of a division of the real estate in this part of the North American continent into the “red” and “blue” regions. The “red” portion of the map, which compromises much the greater part of the territory, is nearly contiguous, and if a division were to be made, it should be drawn along congressional districts or county lines, not state boundaries. There would be scattered much smaller “blue” districts, each of which could form its own kind of governance, and adopt whatever set of cockamamie rules they want in order to establish their idea of “equality” in the new republic they would set up.

The “red” region would then be free to re-establish the principles and constitutional incentives that had served the nation once known as “the United States of America” so well during its first two centuries of existence.

There would be, of course, a period of flux, in which those trapped in a “blue” enclave would be allowed to emigrate to the “red” district, once it had been established that they were not some kind of deceitful double agent who intended to carry the virus of collectivism into the “red” district. Any person who harbored sympathies for the policies of the “blue” districts would be summarily expelled, without regard to status, family, or claims to holdings of any kind within the “red” district.

A very well policed boundary between the “red” district and the various “blue” enclaves would be established, with passage over this boundary very strictly regulated and only after the issuance of a visa for the limited purposes stated at time of application. Overstaying the visa is grounds for immediate expulsion, without hearings or appeals.

Has it dawned on anyone else how sick and cruel this little gambit is for those children?

They are being actively encouraged to LEAVE THEIR PARENTS and make a dangerous journey of thousands of miles alone. We are splitting up families, which ultimately is the most tragic thing you can do to a child.

All for the future political benefit of the Democrat Party.

I’m with you. I don’t care if polls show 75% disapproval. We still have to deal with 2 1/2 more years of this POS, and then these same ‘disapproving’ voters will vote in another liberal POS.

Or did Obama and the Dems use our money to pay the $8000 for each kid/druggie to come here? The truth will out some day, just wait and see.

But the split families is only temporary, don’t you see? The lawyers for these children are going to send people back to their country of origin, find all the family members (aunts, uncles, cousins, parent, gparents etc etc) and they will be brought here so these poor souls will again have a family.

All those will be new Dem voters, with new American citizenship and all the freebees you can imagine. Now that is the real plan here.

Amazing.

FoxNews poll this morning shows that 67% want those illegals already here to stay.

Ironic since Fox’s Murdoch met with Valeria Jarrett just a few days ago.

A couple of weeks ago, Brit Hume was decrying those who claimed allowing illegals to stay would be “amnesty.” He went on to say that NONE of the proposed immigration reform bills of the last 15 years even had the word “amnesty” in them.

[Ole Brit, parsing and nuancing like an amnesty pusher.]

Not bad, because around 38% would support Obama if he brought the children to the U.S. for ritualistic sacrifices and cannibalism. That only leaves around 3% uninformed.

And, your point is?

Lets face facts folks - the Emperor doesn’t care what the polls say. He has his agenda and he is immune to political fallout/pushback/whatever.

Until the RINOs grow some spine and other male body parts they have been lacking since the Reagan Presidency nothing is going to happen; supporting poll results or not.

IMHO, the second Republican Primary in Mississippi shows that RINOs at the state and national level are more concerned about maintaining their PERSONAL POLITICAL power than anything else. This political reality used to be only associated with the dimocratic party - now its associated with both. A pox on both of their houses - everywhere.

There is a direct corolation between his DREAM Executive Order last year, which basically gave amnesty to young people who crossed the border, and the influx of youths this year.

Last year the total number was between 4 and 6 thousand. This 1/2 year the number is between 60 and 90 thousand with projections of 150 thousand by the end of the year and potentially 250 thousand more next year.

This one IS on Obama — including the reported death of an 11-year-old victim.

In 2012 Obama decided to bypass Congress, He slackened border security and ordered immigration to stop deporting people entering illegally.

Now he is "going it alone" by giving illegals lawyers at taxpayer expense.

He continues to push because he knows congress will not oppose him. John Boehner has threatened to write Obama a letter!

Once again, African Americans hurting their own race as Obama will cast a shadow on other African Americans due to his corruption and ineptitude. All these so called Black Leaders never help their own race, really sad.

Yep.

This isn’t something that just happened, this took planning and coordination.

If they put out a notice for 65,000 escorts in January, then clearly they had to have come up with the idea and started planning for this months if not a year or more in advance.

Someone in the US govt. had to coordinate with the Mexican govt. a plan to let all the illegals travel through Mexico to get here.

That wasn’t done overnight and it wasn’t some 2 bit Podunk that did it.

It had to be someone high in the govt and there had to be an assurance the next president wouldn’t take any actions against Mexico.

Everyone tends to forget it was Hillary that got the entire “something needs to be done with illegals” debate started in 2005.

Remember in Zippo’s first term Hillary took a trip to Mexico and shazzam there was a disease outbreak and everyone started bracing for all the expected “refugees” fleeing the epidemic?

This has been tried before.

The 250k projection has been in many of articles related to the Child Invasion.

Why would it not increase, especially if those in CA/SA see that the current influx are getting the royal treatment?

So freaking what?!! I knew what a piece of trash he was before I even heard of him. But he doesn't care re public opinion. He's a single digit IQ buffoon who stumbled onto the presidency purely because he from da hood. He's got it made ......... for life, and nobody can touch that.

I'm tired of reading re his plummeting ratings. He doesn't care.

“Until the RINOs grow some spine and other male body parts they have been lacking since the Reagan Presidency nothing is going to happen.”

The hopes in RINOs ability to regenerate body parts, and their respective corresponding character defects, is still, thus far, the stuff of science fiction. They can’t help it. They were born that way. However, these inherent defects, and the accompanying psychopathy, make RINOs abnormally attracted to pleasurable experience and creature comforts, such as grandstanding, large bank accounts, popularity contests, mind altering substances, shiny things, and lollipops. Evidence has shown that moral obligations have no impact upon RINOs. The only effective means to direct the notorious RINO is leave a trail of shiny things and lollipops along a path leading in the desired direction. All other actions are futile.

The fear when John Kennedy ran for office was that he’d be ‘Catholic’ first - and ‘American’ second. Kennedy quickly put that fear to rest. He was an American President - and the country sighed the sigh of relief.

One of the hopes Americans had with Obama’s election was he would do the same - transcend race. Make race a ‘non-issue’ - in much the same way Kennedy made religion a ‘non-issue’. To follow in Kennedy’s careful footsteps. (Example: Kennedy had the wit NOT to put in a controversial Catholic AG who bristled at any possible slight to Catholics.)

Obama’s done the opposite... and you’re right - it’s sad. But the country will get past it - and someday a black person will be elected based on his ideas and beliefs and all this will be forgotten.

Whatever the plan is, in the interim these children are going to be irreparably damaged by the separation from their families. And Democrats are doing it deliberately.
