Dem. Rep. Cuellar: WH Called Me For Speaking Out against President
NRO ^ | July 9, 2014 | Andrew Johnson

Posted on 07/09/2014 10:04:52 AM PDT by don-o

Representative Henry Cuellar (D., Texas) hasn’t been shy about speaking out against the Obama administration’s handling of the border crisis, and that apparently earned him a phone call from the someone at the White House.

“Yes, I have,” Cuellar said on Fox & Friends on Wednesday when asked if he had received a talking-to. “But let me just say that I’m more concerned not about who gets angry at me at the White House; I’m more concerned about my constituents who want to find a practical solution to this question that we’re facing down there at the border.”

“Who called you?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.

“We’ll just leave it like that,” Cuellar responded.

“Did they tell you to pipe down?” Kilmeade pressed again.

“We’ll just leave it like that,” the congressman repeated. “But notice what I’m doing: I’m still talking about it.”

The Fascist in Charge hates it when the people mock him. Representatives are starting to realize they work for the people and not the party. Finally

OK Cuellar has one testicle by actually criticizing the administration —but he should have let the fur fly —then he would really have both testicles.

His office phones must be ringing off the hook! Not only is he a dem, he’s an hispanic dem. I’ve heard of him before, but I don’t know if he’s conservative or a liberal or what. But I think it is safe to assume that many, if not most, of his constituents are dems and I’d reckon a goodly number are hispanic.

Despite what the “leaders of the community” and their white lib enablers would have one believe, hispanic people aren’t all having a group love fest all the time, any more than white people or any other group of people are.

I’m sorry to say this, but the Guatemalens, especially, are bad news.

The Democrat congressman wants to appear to be brave for speaking out against Obama’s behavior toward the border crises. The founding fathers risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to give us our Constitution. The current members of congress, with all the protections provided by the Constitution, won’t even risk the next election.

The congressman got the call from the White House but his courage melted like butter on a sidewalk in Arizona in July when asked who made the call and what did they say. I don’t want him in a foxhole with me.

While the DIMs may start criticizing Clown Prince nobama, they own him. They cannot distance themselves from this several year love-fest they have had with this lawless anti-American poltroon. DIMs/LIBs/RINOs are all not to be trusted and are all mentally ill.

Let this be a lession to all people in positions of power:

Always record your phone callls, because of someone from the white house threatens you, you can release the information to the media and then they dare not hurt you.

Something bad or accidental happens to you and the whitehouse is put under the microscope....

I thought from what's written here that he handled the call just right....with humor about not backing down. That kind of approach might be the best way to get other dems on board criticizing the pres.

It's kind of an "emperor has no clothes" situation. When the dem didn't back down, Obama's WH calling demonstrated they're just bullies only interested in their own agenda.

He also said he was AGAINST building a wall.

So does Cuellar still support Obama? If this fool believed Obama’s private promises to the Dems on the border, he’s a bigger idiot than Bart Stupak.

I hope every DC pol doesn't have a price. I thought Kucinich didn't. But....Kucinich opposed Obamacare after actually reading it. He caved after a ride in AF1 with Obama.

It got Kucinich nowhere....Obama never had his back after redistricting. Moral of my story....anyone who sells out for Obama is a fool.

The “open borders” as instituted by the Current Regime is about to come around and bite the Current Occupant and the entire Democrat party in the gluteus maximus.

At best, they have alienated a goodly part of the Hispanic voters. At worst they have unleashed a health and civil unrest crisis upon the entire country, as well as overwhelming all the potential sources of relief from local communities and private donors.

It was once the policy of the Stalinist Communist government of the Soviet Union, to relocate large segments of the ethnic populations to widely scattered parts of the Soviet empire, like Latvians to Georgia, or Chechens to Leningrad, or Ukrainians to Siberia.

These ethnically diverse people are now being widely dispersed throughout all part of the territory once known as “the United States of America, often without the prior knowledge or agreement of the communities affected.

School bussing with a vengeance. That program worked so well, too.

Time to revive the Republican campaign slogan of 1946 - “Had enough?”

Don’t forget who got married thirty seconds after his party bud Condidit’s intern disappeared. Maybe Obama had a photo of Gary and Dennis in their bottomless chaps.

After the machinations of Ø’care, with phony EO’s on abortion and whipping the votes so that they know who can safely vote against while the monstrosity passes, I don’t trust ANY ‘Rat.

I can envision a scenario where the guy calculated that it was in his best interests to “oppose” Ø, and then he arranged for the white hut to seem to initiate calling him out, so that he could choreograph his “opposition”.

Just love it when somebody sitting at a computer says what a Democrat Mexican Texas congressman should have said when criticizing his party's administration.

This is a good sign. Cuellar must be getting mucho heat from his constituents who are largely Hispanic Americans. The flood of illegals coming to take their jobs and spread crime and disease in their communities must not be setting too well with them.

The Democrats are looking BAD (poll wise) even along the Texas-Mexican border.

Cuellar’s numbers are down, and like some other have mentioned, the Texans with Mexican heritage are NOT happy with all these even MORE third-worlders, and crime riddled thug cultures from Central America!

Cuellar is simply playing to his constituents, but like all good politicians (especially Democrats), as soon as he is re-elected and back in the safe confines of D.C., he will sing whatever song The Won wants him to sing!
