Posted on 07/26/2014 11:46:29 PM PDT by lbryce
President Barack Obama's request for billions of dollars to deal with migrant children streaming across the border set off Democrats and Republicans. Lawmakers in both parties complained that the White House six years in still doesn't get it when it comes to working with Congress.
Top GOP leaders got no notice of the $3.7 billion emergency request. The administration sent contradictory messages about what it wanted to deal with the border crisis. And as the proposal drew fierce criticism, the White House made few overtures to lawmakers in either party to rally support.

He is still a community organizer. Think about how people become successful community organizers. They antagonize and demonize another party in order to get concessions. Obama has no negotiating skills at all. He has never needed them before.
Congress needs to put on their big boy pants and remind the Kenyan about the separation of powers. He may just be ignorant to the fact that his way is not the way we do things in America.
zer0 has nothing but contempt for Congress. We agree on something.
I will try to be kind and say President Obama was and is totally unprepared to be president. Did he ever demonstrate any leadership skills prior to becoming president? No. Did he even display an ability to create the consensus necessary to pass legislation? No. He really has zero leadership skills, and it shows.
It’s bad enough that President Obama possesses a toxic ideology that’s part Marxism and racial grievances. His greatest accomplishments? Being elected to ever more important offices. Actually accomplishing anything while in those offices? Not so much. Even his “signature” accomplishment, Obamacare, wasn’t something he created. It’s something the Democrats wrote and passed. Obama simply signed it. He’s an affirmative action president!
Some people think this is all part of the plan, that President Obama is actually a genius who is following the Cloward-Piven strategy to create a crisis. Maybe so, but if so, the president is an Einstein-level intellect and political genius. Why? Because in all these years, he’s never once let his image as a bumbling, disinterested fish-out-of-water president slip—not once!
Either way, America is going to reap the whirlwind for electing someone like Obama. Yes. Elections do have consequences—serious consequences.
The Imposter and the and the Ex-Imposters are permitted to do whatever they like as long as the Yellen Group-East India Company, never face accountability nor consequences.
Obama has no capacity - intellectually or experienced - to deal with being the president of the United States of America. He is a pot stirer, an agitator, a trouble maker, a community organizer. That’s what he likes and that is what he does....as we speak.
too aloof? This is whining. Obama needs to be impeached now!
well duh! Obama sees himself as the King, the Ruler so he doesn’t have to meet with Congress.
“Obama has no negotiating skills at all. He has never needed them before.”
Somebody who was claiming to be a surgeon but faking it would steer clear of real surgeons because they’d spot him in a moment. He’s not a politician. Once he’s away from the teleprompter he’s a gaff a minute. He steers clear of people who might find him out.
He missed his calling. He could have had a successful career in telemarketing because he delivers the script so convincingly..................
He stays away from them because he is a dictator. They are not needed in his world.
Shame they are so stupid that they haven’t figured it out yet.
I have a different take. The task of Barack Obama is to redistribute. His task is to rob the treasury.
He has robbed it blind, it is empty.
The supplemental bill in question is designed to provide a new pol of money to rob.
The Democrat Party is a criminal enterprise
Hell - all the Congress does is whine - if it wants him to be less aloof, it should start engaging in a meaningful manner - start by defunding a crap load of left-wing money pits...
“He could have had a successful career in telemarketing because he delivers the script so convincingly.................. “
It’s interesting you should say that. Even when the Tammy and what’s-his-name Baker were at their peak, I saw them as frauds. I’ve never been convinced by a telemarketer, or crooked politician. I never even bought into Rubio as a conservative, he just rang false. When my buddies swooned over him I looked on in surprise. Perhaps I’m just cynical to the bone. I don’t know. I bought into Reagan from day one but I kept looking for the betrayal that never came. (I was willing to let a lot slide on GWB as he was attacked 24/7 by the prestitutes so I kept an open mind. But he really showed his colors on immigration.) From day one I read Obama as a fraud. He never convinced me. I shall die because the sign reads “minefield” and I won’t believe it.
God, please grant Trey Gowdy 10 minutes to destroy the fraud Odumbo.
He doesn’t know how to work with the opposition. He can’t take criticism. Even the constructive kind. He can’t come half way on anything. It’s either he wins or he plays golf. He lacks a lot of skills in this area.
After six years they still don't get how Congress works? PLEASE...
The WH seemed to know how it worked when they were ramming down our throats Obamacare !
Oh'... No... they understand completely, they just don't think they need Congress to do anything...
After all has Congress stopped them from anything yet?
