On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest refused to answer a simple question from Fox News Ed Henry, Is the border secure?
Earnest dodged Henrys questioning with remarks such as there are more resources that are dedicated to this border right now and securing it and President Obama certainly is supportive of additional security to the border.
Earnest never answered if the Obama administration believes the border is secure. Of course, the answer is no.

Obvious follow-up question is obvious: “Isn’t the assurance of border security part of the President’s oath of office and the specific task of the Homeland Security Administration, in addition to other Federal agencies?”
But Reed (sicKo) insists the border is secure. The proof in his feeble mind is that the border patrol is taking in so many kids now, whereas in the past they just got thru undetected.
If you’ve ever noticed, Harry Reid is ALWAYS on the Senate floor when he makes his blatant lies. He cannot be held accountable for them there.......so when Earnest is out front being a mouthpiece for this adm, he has to tread lightly, as the consequences are a little greater out in the “real world”....lol.
When the true answer would be admitting failure and a lie would be too easily disputed, give an answer full of weasel words.
admit nothing, deny everything, make counter accusations.
