Skip to comments.Obama Defends Not Visiting Texas Border, Saying He’s ‘Not Interested In Photo Ops
Posted on 07/10/2014 7:30:18 PM PDT by lbryce
President Obama on Wednesday forcefully defended his decision not to visit the Texas border with Mexico to view a burgeoning humanitarian crisis, saying hes not interested in photo ops and challenging Congress to give him new authority to respond to the situation.
Nothing has taken place down there that Im not intimately aware of, Obama said during a hastily arranged news conference here, where he began a two-day visit to the state for Democratic fundraising and an economic event. This is not theater.
His remarks came after a meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) and local leaders to discuss his administrations response to an influx of tens of thousands of foreign children, mostly from Central America, who have entered the state illegally.

That's right. He's not interested in photo opportunities where the opposition can take opportunity of the sort of mess he's making.
This is not "theater".
Unfortunately, it's not. It's reality where real people suffer real consequences.
Hell get his picture taken playing pool and shaking hands with some stoner wearing a horse head, but he won’t go the the border.
Imagine of Bush had done that during Katrina.
He’s just “not interested” ... in correcting the situation.
Open borders Barry the fraud Soetoro.
No, he isn’t. He’s only interested in inflicting pain on the American people as he did with the “shutdown” of the government. He apparently isn’t aware of everything going on because he didn’t know that the Border Patrol was stationed 45-0 miles from the border. So, once again - he lies.
The other day O'Reilly made the comment that Obama is up for being one of the top five WORST presidents this country has ever had.
As far as I'm concerned he is NUMBAH ONE WORST!
So, what else could we expect from Presidente "Chulo" Obama??
He has Tourette’s syndrome.
He'd have the press tagging along... & they might see something like this!
How cute would a selfie be w/that guy in the pinkie & beard in the back middle of the photo!
Why would he want to fix it?
Obama created this situation to extort and amnesty plan from the congress. If they don't give him what he wants he is knowingly going to let the border crisis keep getting worse without lifting a finger. He knows that the media will take pictures of children dying in the street, diseases running rampant through the community, and it will all be blamed on the republicans.
This is extortion on a national level.
There is noting that is a bigger waste of anyones time, if you have an IQ above that straw, than to listen, let alone believe, ANYTHING that mac daddy says about ANYTHING.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE, MARK ZUCKERBERG?
Well now. Why don't we put that phrase through the Obama Babel Fish Translator that translates Obama Narcissistic Sociopath language into normal every day English.
....Okay. The translator has finished. Here is the result.
Not interested in recognizing one of my own failures.
Well. Looks like the Obama Translator nailed that one.
This 6 minute video may help even the dullest no/low info morons understand what they have done. (Then again...) With assists from academia, liberal Jews (no, I am NOT an anti-semite but support Israel’s right to exist) and a few others, the 47% no/low info voters hooked on free chit put a MAD MAN in the Spite House! And if you thought the last 6 years were insane, wait until next year!
PLEASE SHARE WIDELY!
The HHS isn’t allowing photos. So that excuse is irrelevant.
Obama has ALWAYS been about the photo-op, but his major FAILURE here by running from the border, is gutlessly ducking the responsibility ... again.
The reaction to this “no photo op” crap was devastating on Fox today - Cavuto did a montage of past non-photo-ops with Obama including my favorite, the one with all the stooges in white coats when he was trying to sell Obamacare, and just a few minutes later Gutfeld read an original poem savaging the statement on “The Five”.....
There are posts on this forum right now warning of infectious diseases (TB and many others) the illegal immigrants are carrying. The lack of adequate screening of immigrants and lack of protection for Border enforcement personnel hasten the spread of contagion.
I'm sure it was decided it's just too dangerous for the POTUS to risk exposure. It's fine for you and me, though...
Cloward/Piven is working EXCELLENTLY for him!!! CHAOS....OVERWHELM the SYSTEM....then re-make it into COMMUNISM.
That was HILLARIOUS!!!
Can’t wait for the ice cream photo ops from Martha’s Vineyard.
