This is a real WTF moment and I do not mean “Win the Future.”
U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said Thursday that security on the southern U.S. border “is better now than it ever has been” and that violence from neighboring Mexico hasn’t spilled over in a serious way.
What the hell are they smoking in the White House Romper Room? In addition to inane crap like this, we are increasingly seeing a stonewall thrown up around “Project Gunrunner” While I am hesitant to suggest that this will be Obumbler’s Watergate, There are several things here that are striking.
First, the entire imperial Presidency meme that would have people rioting in the streets if Bush has tried it. “DUDE” doesn’t seem to believe that he is accountable to anyone, least of all not to Congressional oversight of executive actions.
Second, his hypocrisy knows no bounds. “The most transparent administration in history” (borrowed, of course, from Her Majesty SanFranNan Pelosi, she of the “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it” fame) has the most polished lie factory I can remember. Not even Billy Jeff (I did not have sexual relations with that woman) Clinton lied in such a bald-faced way.
Third, everything B. Hussein Obama does directly weakens the country. Whether it’s financial (see refusal to address the deficit), reaction to disasters (see Deepwater Horizon), weakening border security so a nuclear dirty bomb could simply be walked across the border into Arizona or Texas. The more those states try to tighten up security the harder the administration pushes back.
Impeachment threat was the remedy for Watergate. It should be the remedy for Obama. Except he won’t resign. He will just go into permanent campaign mode and hide on left-wing college campuses (redundancy alert!).
Our Whiner-in-Chief likes the trappings of the Office, but does not want to do the work, which is why all the real decisions are made by unelected and unrepentant socialists in various cabinet offices. It’s time to fix the problem.
