After delivering a statement about his administrations plans to deal with the current crisis at Americas border with Mexico Wednesday afternoon, President Barack Obama addressed for the first time the mounting criticism over his decision not to visit to border on his trip to Texas this week. In answering a reporters question on the controversy, Obama defended his decision by saying he was more interested in a substantive solution to the problem than a simple photo-op. The president explained that his Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson will be making his sixth trip to the border this week and briefs him

The list, Ping

This is nothing but Theater.
Unless it’s Chris Christie hugging me and then we’ll use that photo all over the country...
More like a circus.

“This isn’t theater” So he goes to the home of a movie producer and invites actors and actresses instead for a photo op?
go down tonight
smoke a little dope, drink some more beer, go down tonight ...
go down tonight
But no .. repeat; NO .. photo op
What was Ø’s original invite to Perry for a tarmac handshake, if not “theatre”.
And he isn’t a leader.
Bammy was on a high from second hand choom.
Once an assh***, always...
By the way, Hi! IRS.
I’m sure I’m now marked.
Imagine if Bush had said this during Katrina! Or is Obama a racist for degrading Mexicans?
Dear Congress....just send money.........BO is seeking $3.7 billion in funding for this new fiasco.
$3,700,000,000 / 150,000 new, “immigrant” children = ~$25,000 a head!
Another way to look at the math $3,700,000,000 / 2,000 miles of US-Mexican border = $1,850,000 per mile. You could build a heck of a fence for that kind of money!
This from the moron whose staff’s primary concern is “optics”? It’s all theater and nothing but theater to 0bama, and it’s been like that since the styrofoam Greek columns and the phony Nobel Peace Prize.
Yeah photo op playing pool is fine though-
I guess it’s beneath him to go to border and thank the folks who are changing diapers and feeding babies eh?
How many other photo ops has this President inserted himself into?
He’s quick enough to rush for a photo-op around tornado damage in a blue state though. /S
Drag Obummer down there and and rub his nose in the smelly mess he made coz he is nuthin` but a dirty filthy dog.
Why the hell did Perry give Obammy his photo op?? Thats all the news in Dallas is showing...Perry kissing O’s a$$ on the tarmac! spit
What part of an arse is a tarmac?
What did any dirty filthy dog ever do to deserve such an unfair and mean comparison as that.
Gutfeld is great when he’s not dismissing the homosexual agenda.
There’s a village in Kenya missing its idiot.
He’s more interested in fund raising. I’m getting on board with Dennis Miller. I’m going to check out. He said he now lives in the United States of Miller.

The purpose of a Border is to keep Illegal Aliens out.
Start with isolating the Illegal Aliens by language barriers by banning teaching and speaking Spanish in all Public Schools, then stop all Government Welfare Payments, and then fine employers $1,000 per day per Illegal Alien.
The ultimate goal is to treat Illegal Alien Invaders who cross from Mexico into the USA, the same way that USA Citizens who invade Mexico are treated today.
This is a practical application of the Democrats Fairness Doctrine used in a manner to re-create a Southern Border for the USA.
Obama started this Southern Border WAR, and We, The People will finish it so that this Illegal Alien Invasion from Mexico into the USA NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!
It is time, - - - - time for a change.
I thought Valerie Jarret told him to go to the border... She’s going to kick his skinny butt when he gets back for disobeying orders..!
If it ain’t a fundraiser, it ain’t worth going to.
$3.7B ought to get a lot of Obama’s children here.
YOU PLAYED POOL JACKASS! Someone shove a joint in his pie hole to shut up his bs.
