Skip to comments.We Could Close Everything During the Gov't Shutdown, But We Can't Close the Border?

RUSH: You remember, ladies and gentlemen, the fuss over the sequester? Real but very small budget cuts, not reductions in the rate of growth, but actual budget cuts. I mean, they were infinitesimal and they outraged Obama. It was his idea, and the Republicans called his bluff, and there was a sequester, and it ticked him off.
But do you remember, during the sequester Obama was able to close down the Washington National Mall. He was able to stop veterans ceremonies. He was able to shut down the Blue Ridge Parkway. He was even able to shut down the Grand Canyon, visits to the Grand Canyon.
He was able to shut down visits to Jellystone National Park. While the World War II Memorial was shut down, he allowed I think it was an anti-Israel or pro-immigration rally or some such thing to go on at that place when he was preventing World War II vets from making perhaps their once in a lifetime visit to the memorial, things they had saved money for, planned for, and he used the sequester as the excuse for shutting things down, randomly selecting things to shut down, yet he tells us that he can't close the border.
And Democrat Party tells us they can't close the border, but look at what they can randomly shut down whenever they want to. They can shut down the Mall. They can shut down veterans ceremonies at World War II memorials. They can shut down the Grand Canyon. You know the things they were shutting down. But, "No, no, no, can't shut down the border." And then in addition to that Obama's been able to keep congressmen and reporters out of all of these detention centers and military bases that are housing the latest illegal aliens, but he can't keep little children from crossing the Rio Grande.
He can keep senators and members of the House out of these detention centers. He can demand that they don't show up with cameras. He can demand that they don't get to see, the media, everybody, but can't keep kids from crossing the border? He can shut down any aspect of the government he wants, but he can't close the border. He uses his powers very selectively, sort of like the way he selectively chooses which laws of the land that he's going to change and those that cannot be changed. Yeah, he's got a phone and a pen, whenever he wants. But he just can't close the border, damn it, all these other things, he can't close the border. It just seems impossible to do.

But it’s challenging because that’s exactly what’s happening. Barack Obama is employing tactics that have been used by people like Nicolae Ceausescu, Saddam Hussein, and Fidel Castro. Fidel Castro released hundreds of thousands of just the most horrible characters from his prisons and they infested south Florida in the Mariel Boatlift — and the same thing with Ceausescu and releasing his prisoners. Not all of them are political. Some of them were hardened criminals
They are working even harder to do nothing to stop the illegals crossing the border and everything in their power to help them into the United States and onto government assistance.
The only conclusion we can make from their response to the border crisis is that they want to bring these illegals into the country and keep them here
They even closed the ocean during the shut down.
Rush is spot on.
Sure, just shut the door. Done.
I thought Obama still allowed the oceans to stop rising. Did he close them as well? His powers are limitless it seems.
The border must stay open for Obama to distract us from his many scandals. He is ready for his vacation where he will blame republicans for everything under the sun.
Dear Liberal Media,
Do you see whats happening under President Obama? IRS fiasco, border fiasco, ISIS fiasco, and that’s just the high-lites. The actual truth is, I don’t really blame Obama because he is who he is...a far left radical/community organizer who’s got by his entire life on B.S. and cool-as-a-cucumber image. No... I blame you-the liberal media-for not exposing this guy to the world! How many red flags went up in 2007? There was Reverend Write, voting present all the time, the Bill Ayers connection, and absolutely zero executive experienc. Did you see any of that? No, all you saw was an historic black President and you ran with it.
I leave you with this quote from MLK: I believe in a world where a man is judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. Uhmmm....you guys get the first major award for screwing that vision all to heck. In any case, I have no idea if you’re ashamed of yourself for the shoddy work you’ve done on behalf of the country, but I’m certainly ashamed of you. You’re all a bunch of blow-hard phonies!!
