Obama: House GOP Border Plan Is 'Extreme' And 'Going Nowhere'

President Obama blasted House Republicans for focusing on "extreme" and "partisan message bills," rather than solving problems, highlighting how little lawmakers have accomplished before leaving town for a summer recess.

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, Obama noted signs of economic progress, but argued that "we could be much further along" if the GOP had agreed to "even basic" elements of his agenda.

Obama pointed to Congress' failure to deal with the surge of young Central American immigrants arriving at the southern border. Lawmakers left this week without passing legislation to address the problem, although both Democrats and Republicans had declared it a top priority.

"As we speak, they are trying to pass the most extreme and unworkable version of a bill that they already know is going nowhere," Obama said. "They’re not even trying to solve the problem."

And it takes two idiots to write this drivel, one to lick the emperor’s boots and the other to take notes on what to write when the other comes up for air.

I was forced to sit through about 15 minutes of it. Then some old guy piped up and said “get that asshole off the TV please” and we all cheered..

Tell me those questions were not scripted for him. He did everything but turn the page on his notes.

As far as the house not doing anything, not one of those libs had the nats to ask him, er Sire, how many house bills are sitting in the senate and your party refuses to take them up?

Depends on whose perspective. From his, he has made every problem better. The better the problem the closer he is to his final solution for the US.

Obama's gotten himself into a corner. EVERYONE knows he caused this.

And the Repubs aren't going to bail him out.

There's not a damn thing he can do unilaterally.

The pen has no ink.

He’s delinquent in implementing the existing laws.

I think this community organizer has agitated himself into a corner with no out.

I think “extreme” is their new poll tested talking point. The Dems seem to be using it on pretty much every issue.

Obama has given all Republicans running for office a great campaign line for campaign ads. Document any given problem, and show Obama saying “I’ll go it alone.” Then demonstrate how the problem got worse when Obama went alone.

Bottom line is, this man has zero credibility. Why does our lame press believe anything he says? If he is moving his lips, he lying.

We want people who broke into our country illegally to go home.

Why is that extreme?

When did Obama get time to actually read a bill between golf outings and fund raisers???

100% guaranteed Obama has NEVER read a bill.
