      Thank you for posting parts of the speech; just getting in and missed, what appears to be, a “DYNAMIC, TRUTH TELLING, and SHOE STUMPING” speech by President Obama.

        JOB, it’s worth stopping whatever you’re doing and watching the tape. Our president is in top form–what a sense of timing and his wit is like a very sharp blade. Naturally, the media will focus on something stupid because that’s all they can comprehend.

      Very good blog post. Blogger must read TOD (post echoes many of the sane and logical comment posted on this site concerning this latest msm/gop created fake scandal). No one has been able to give me a rational explanation of what PBO visiting this area will accomplish. No one has been able to name one concrete problem that will be resolved by such a visit. Yet pundits left, right and center were/are demanding PBO take just such meaningless action (while diverting attention from GOP actively refusing to appropriate funds requested to resolve the situation). Sometimes the stupidity has me questioning my own sanity;)

      • 65 Cindy
        July 10, 2014 at 4:29 pm

        Absolutely nothing will be accomplished.

        This thrust by repukes and MSM to get President Obama to the border, is nothing more than their plans to try and sabotage his handling of this humanitarian crisis.

        It is my personal belief, that they want a picture of him standing there so that the MSM can place it next to Bush airplane moment. That moment when he was looking out the window at those who were suffering in the real Katrina.

        They want to magnify some type of headline that says; “they both had their Katrina moment and did nothing.”

        They want to redeem Bush under his “real” Katrina moment that the world will never forget, and create a phony Katrina moment for President Obama to be taken down.

        It is offensive and painful for many who suffered during this period, to have a man made crisis equated to “real human life”, as if those who died and suffered did not have self worth and value.

          Hi Cindy – I’m late – as usual – but you have a great reading of what is happening here – the President is always ahead of the GOP in every possible way.

      • July 10, 2014 at 4:35 pm

        Agree EricFive….

        Which would accomplish more; PBO going to the border or the House voting on (and passing) CIR???

        EricFive, thank you for this comment. Your comments about this crisis of these children escaping terrible conditions have been fantastic. I agree, the president has been busy working to get problems solved. Ignore the msm, they try to make every issue be a negative about President Obama, and never focus on republican obstruction.

    Okay; off to order some barbecue.
    I love how Josh rubbed it in about the smell of the feast and where they will be enjoying it. That sound you hear is the wailing and knashing of teeth of the jealous haters. PBO and his staff are completely out of f**ks to give. Love it.

    Funny, this week started with President Obama being attacked on all sides about the border crisis and what he was going to do about it and if he was going to go to the border and if he was going to meet with Rick Perry and would they shake hands. And the week ends with President Obama dropping a bomb on Perry and the Republicans and heading back to Washington eating barbeque ribs.

      July 10, 2014 at 4:30 pm

      I’m glad she is pushing back on that because I read somewhere yesterday that Dems shouldn’t be making a big deal out of all the Impeachment talk because when Bush was in the WH we were calling for Impeachment. The difference is that as soon as Leader Pelosi took over the gavel she said all that stuff was “off the table”. I remember this well because that Daily Kos crowd went berserk when she said that there would be no legal action against the Bush administration. So these pundits need to stop with the both sides do it crap.

      It’s one thing to talk about it and another thing to actually do it (ala Bill Clinton).

    • July 10, 2014 at 4:21 pm

      Geezzz…. I don’t get it. It took them YEARS of an awful Bush administration before they dared reported the harsh truths. And Bush gave them PLENTY of scandals to investigate. While for President Obama, they were on his case almost from day one. And they’re “less eager” to investigate because, for goodness sakes, this administration is almost scandal FREE !!!!! Maybe they’re “less eager” to investigate because despite the fact that they are the stenographs of the GOP talking points (make something to talk about without too much work), they know that the majority of the supposed scandals are just that, “supposed”. Faux-scandals.

      I hate the media.

    • 100 EricFive

      This is some prep work for the coming anti-PBO propaganda push the msm will be unleashing later this summer. The GOP/MSM are in panic mode as the midterms approach and the GOP wave is failing to materialize. So expect a them to throw the kitchen sink at PBO. In other words, expect msm left, right and center to become EVEN MORE biased and unhinged. This was their cue.

    Totally OT, but look what @CarolMaeWY sent me!

    I told her that I love silver bangles because my roommate in college (from the SF Bay area) wore them, and so did Janis Joplin, who no doubt inspired Stevie Nicks to do likewise.

    Here’s my reply (@CarolMaeWY was thanking me for a small gift that I sent her):

    And the best thing is that yesterday UPS delivered some silver bangles I ordered from Etsy over the weekend — fast delivery from Hawaii — which I’m thrilled with because they are my size (most stores/websites sell only sizes that are way too big for me).

    Love that Janis is being honored by USPS.
