Mediaite ^ | 7/9/14 | Matt Wilstein

After delivering a statement about his administration’s plans to deal with the current crisis at America’s 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 reporter’s 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

This is nothing but Theater.

“This isn’t theater” So he goes to the home of a movie producer and invites actors and actresses instead for a photo op?

$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?

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 Democrat’s 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.
