Good news: Obama havin’ fun as border crisis deepens

posted at 11:21 am on July 9, 2014 by Allahpundit

I’m not surprised that righties like me and Becket Adams would notice this. I am a little surprised that less conservative brows are starting to furrow. This guy’s supposed to be good at media management, isn’t he?

2008: Hope and change. 2014: YOLO?

Someone at the pool hall in Denver offered him a hit of weed too. O ignored him, but at the rate he’s going it’ll be worth asking him again in 2015, around the time that Iran’s building its first nuclear weapon.

Anyway, furrowed brows:

Lefty Michael Tomasky sees Katrina potential here if Obama doesn’t at least pretend to take this surge of illegals seriously:

For one thing, there is the specific parallel of the flyover: Obama was going to Texas for a fundraiser but wasn’t planning on going to the border? I usually try to ask myself what I’d be saying if a Republican did X, and if a Republican did that, I’d be teeing off. It’s not defensible.

Second, Obama is at a really vulnerable point in his presidency, I think, not dissimilar to the point George W. Bush was at in August 2005, when Katrina hit. Then, Bush’s approval rating was generally in the mid-40s, as Obama’s is now. Hanging on, but vulnerable to one straw that could break the camel’s back…

I don’t understand it. I covered New York mayors. When a crisis hits, you go. If it’s 3 in the f***ing morning and way out in some part of Staten Island you’ve never even heard of, you go. Obama should have been in Texas or California or Arizona last week.

He wants O to visit the young illegals who’ve just come across and kick a soccer ball around with them or something, “a Pope Francis-esque gesture of some kind.” Which, I guess, explains why Obama’s so reluctant to go. It’s not that going to the border will signal that he “owns the issue,” it’s that liberals want him down there acting like Jesus for illegals at a moment when he’s eager to show he’s, ahem, serious about border enforcement. If he goes to the border, shakes hands with a few BP officers, poses for the requisite photo of him peering through binoculars with a concerned look on his face, but doesn’t visit with any kids from Central America, the amnesty shills in his base will grouse that he’s sold them out again. He’s trying to get them to manage their expectations for what he can do unilaterally on legalization. If he disappoints them again, they’ll be less likely to cooperate.

But none of that explains the good times with Horsehead and the new Choom Gang in Denver yesterday. Why do that when even liberals are nervous about the optics here? I assume O’s thinking (a) that the public’s attention span for all news not related to missing jumbo jets is now down to about 35 minutes, which means this will all be distant, distant memory by the time people go to vote in November, and (b) he’s going to infuriate border hawks pretty soon anyway when he issues his mass amnesty for the millions of adult illegals who are already here. In which case, why not laugh in their faces while doing it? Where’s the fun in being a lame-duck king who can rewrite federal law on a whim if you have to walk around looking grim and pretend-worried all the time? Next time someone offers him a joint, he should take it. Choom on, big guy.

Oh, let me see I can come with a whole host of obvious reasons. First of all, he’s lazy. Second, he doesn’t give a sh-t. Third, he’s not worried about optics because his base also doesn’t give a sh-t and the media will never turn on him(and no, expressing concern about “optics” doesn’t count). Fourth, he plans on acting unilaterally on amnesty so why should he care what Republican or even Democrat members of Congress think? And fifth, he wants illegals flooding across our borders so why go down there and potentially get dragged into any effort to stem the tide?

Office of Public Affairs
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Department of Justice Announces New Priorities to Address Surge of Migrants Crossing into the U.S.

Justice Department Proposes Establishing Legal and Law Enforcement Advisors to Aid in Disrupting and Dismantling Immigrant Smuggling Operations

Deputy Attorney General James Cole announced today that the Justice Department will implement a series of steps to help address the influx of migrants crossing the southern border of the United States. These include refocusing immigration court resources to adjudicate the cases of recent migrants; providing support and training to help address violence in Central America; and redoubling efforts to work with other federal agencies and the Mexican government to investigate and prosecute those who smuggle migrants to the United States.

“Individuals who embark on the perilous journey from Central America to the United States are subject to violent crime, abuse, and extortion as they rely on dangerous human smuggling networks to transport them through Central America and Mexico,” Deputy Attorney General Cole said. “We have an obligation to provide humanitarian care for children and adults with children who are apprehended on our borders, but we also must do whatever we can to stem the tide of this dangerous migration pattern. The efforts we are announcing today are intended to address the challenges of this influx in a humane, efficient and timely way.”

Cole announced that the department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) will refocus its resources to prioritize cases involving migrants who have recently crossed the southwest border and whom DHS has placed into removal proceedings — so that these cases are processed both quickly and fairly to enable prompt removal in appropriate cases, while ensuring the protection of asylum seekers and others.

“This refocusing of resources will allow EOIR to prioritize the adjudication of the cases of those individuals involved in the evolving situation at the southwest border,” said EOIR Director Juan P. Osuna. “Although our case management priorities are shifting, our immigration judges will continue to evaluate and rule upon cases consistent with all substantive and procedural rights and safeguards applicable to immigration proceedings.”

To augment its capacity to adjudicate cases as promptly as possible, EOIR is committed to hiring more immigration judges. EOIR this week will also publish a regulation allowing for the appointment of temporary immigration judges. Further, EOIR plans both to expand its existing legal access programs, and enhance access to legal resources and assistance for persons in removal proceedings.

Cole also announced that the Department is seeking new funding, as a part of the President’s emergency supplemental appropriations request, to assist Central American countries in combatting transnational crime and the threat posed by criminal gangs. This regional strategy for law enforcement capacity building would be aimed at addressing the issues that have been a factor in forcing many migrants to flee Central America for the United States.

The department will also redouble its efforts to work with Mexican authorities to identify and apprehend smugglers who are aiding unaccompanied children in crossing the U.S. border. Later this week, the Deputy Attorney General will also be meeting with the five U.S. Attorneys who represent the southwest border districts to strategize on ways to disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations on the border that are facilitating the transportation of unaccompanied minors and others.

Today, Deputy Attorney General Cole will go to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s McAllen Station and processing facility to see the urgent situation at the border. EOIR Director Osuna will be testifying before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to highlight the Justice Department’s efforts to aid in the administration-wide response to the migrant influx.

If I was running for office I would be stressing my border security cred right now while pointing out the fact my opponent is a total amnesty shill who hates border security.Dims have been beaten the GOP to death on this and I think they have put themselves in a corner.

Obama’s rear penetration checklist?

The only big item missing in this report is that last night he arrived all alone at the Denver base. NO one was there, the Greek columns all decayed.

His rats scooted. None want a picture taken with their oaf, because he is political poison for all of them.

The orgasmic “obama, obama, obama” is a nightmare these days.

Schadenfreude pure.

Here’s laughing at you Tomasky. I hope you dope choke in his azz. It w/b the perfect ending for you, the ultimate obama fool, aside from HA’s beloved verbie.

I remember when the Left and the press (but I repeat myself) use to get all pretzeled up when W would fly out to fundraisers and make fun of whatever crazy “official” function that was happening on the trip as a ludicrous justification. Obama doesn’t even bother. “I’m taking my plane out for a spin to steal money from my stupid friends, y’all pay for it and shut up.” Of course, now that he is meeting with Gov. Perry this trip is covered but why does he get a pass before it was scheduled?

WAtching C-Span just now, Senate Mexican Border hearing, they just said that more than 50% of the Unaccompanied illegal “minors” are teenaged BOYS. The women and children who are mother and child, do not count as Unaccompanied, they are “family groups.”

So, if there are 57,000 unaccompanied children, total, then 25 -30K of them are young men.

Obama is the happiest man in America now that Palin wants impeach him.

He lays the traps, and fools walk in.

Do you wanna write your ‘Outrage:Obama took a summer vacation!’ post now and just be done with it?

Remember when Bush visited his ranch with most of his staff in tow and the left went apoplectic.

Good times.

You must really have a sore back, verbaldouche. At 62.5 pounds per cubic foot, that water you’re carrying must be a burden, even for an Obamanaut like y’all……

As Il Doofus aka Barack the Feckless, is so fond of saying, ‘It’s good to be King….’

I wonder what he’ll do when the sans-culottes realize that he’s not on their side?

Obama’s civilian army. These kids are primed for brainwashing. In a few years they’ll do whatever democrats tell them.
