Priorities ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)...

Obama Won’t Visit Southern U.S. Border While in Texas, but Here’s What He Will Be Doing

Quote:
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Wednesday that President Barack Obama will not be visiting the southern U.S. border anytime soon, even though he will be in Texas next week for a fundraiser.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has invited Obama a few times to visit the border to assess the immigration crisis that has evolved as tens of thousands of unaccompanied children have crossed into the United States. But Earnest said Obama at this point has not accepted.

“Schedules sometimes change and if they do we’ll let you know, but right now there is no plan to visit the border while he’s in Texas,” Earnest said.

Instead of visiting the border, Obama will fly from Denver to Dallas for a fundraiser on July 9, then will leave Texas from Austin the following day. Earnest declined to call it a fundraiser, instead saying Obama would be “building some support for Democratic candidates for office who are on the ballot in November.”

Earnest was asked whether Obama was comfortable with the idea of holding a fundraiser in Texas while people along the border are coping with what most agree is a humanitarian crisis. But Earnest indicated that enough senior officials are dealing with the problem at this time.
I do kinhda understand the logic...

It's not a good thing to see the president actually standing in the middle of a crisis most Americans believe he created himself...

I imagine his security force nixed it due to the growing amount of violent gun toting ditto heads down there. just a guess.

What, exactly, are these senior officials doing about Obama's mess?

I would be more afraid of the security surrounding me than of outsiders.

Not Obama's mess and btw he is also not responsible for your fridge going out this week or the rain.

What are they doing? ABIDING BY THE LAW SENDING THE KIDS TO DHS. ASKING CONGRESS TO AMEND THAT LAW. WATCHING CONGRESS SIT ON THEIR THUMBS.

I can't blame Barry for not going to the border. Normally peeps don't hang around the area they took a giant dump at.

Why would Obama wanna be seen at a clusterf*ck he created?

Yes, I agree it is your imaginary excuse for Obama neglecting his office. Remember the outcry when Bush supposedly didn't personally react to Katrina quickly enough. But just like the oil spill Obama ignored for 9 days Obama gets a pass. The double standard is firmly in place.

Of course fund raisers are so very important to Obama he flew out to Vegas the day after the terrorist attack on Benghazi. It should be no surprise he just assigns the work to underlings while he pander to donors.

A good example of the right inventing a scandal. Did you know that Obama isn't visiting the town where a fertilizer plant blew up killing 15 people. That must mean something.
