Cynical Demagogue Obama Holding Border Security Hostage To Leftwing Agenda

June 21, 2010

Obama says the following isn’t true, and Jon Kyle is lying.  Personally, I say the Liar-in-Chief is lying.  But if Obama ISN’T lying, all he has to do is demonstrate that he in fact has been actively working to bolster border security.  All he has to do is show us what he’s done.

Oh, wait.  He hasn’t done crap.  Not a damn thing.  The only thing he HAS done is sent in a battalion of lawyers to sue Arizona for actually DOING SOMETHING TO SLOW DOWN OUT-OF-CONTROL ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

The Obama administration doesn’t have to actually bother to read the Arizona law to know they don’t like it.  Because they don’t like ANYTHING that does ANYTHING to slow down illegal immigration.

He mentioned that he was going to send 1200 National Guardsmen a few weeks back – quickly adding that they would only be used for “desk security” rather than any kind of actual border security.  In the Army we had a term for useless desk jockies who did nothing but make the lives of the actual grunts shorter, nastier, and more brutish: “Chairborne Rangers.”  But even given that the desk security personnel are going to be utterly useless, just where exactly the hell are they?  Governer Brewer says they sure haven’t appeared in her state.

Obama thinks that saying he’s going to do something is just as good as actually doing it.  So he doesn’t need to do anything now that he said he would do something.

Kind of like Gitmo.  Only this time he actually promised to do something that would at least be a tiny step in the right direction, rather than a massive step in the wrong one.

VIDEO – Sen. Kyl: ‘Obama Says No Border Security without Amnesty’

In a stunning revelation at an Arizona town hall meeting this past Friday, Republican Senator Jon Kyl told his constituents that President Obama privately insisted that he will not secure the border until amnesty for illegal aliens passes first. According to Kyl, Obama argued that Democrats would lose their bargaining chips for any type of amnesty if the government beefs up its presence on the chaotic border. “The problem is,” Obama allegedly told Kyl, “If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.”

Transcript (at 3:21):

SEN. JON KYL:  I met with the president in the Oval Office, just the two of us… Here’s what the president said.  “The problem is,” he said, “If we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.”

[gasps from the audience]

KYL:  In other words they’re holding it hostage.  They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with comprehensive immigration reform.  I explained, “You and I have an obligation to secure the border.  That’s an obligation.  It also has some potentially positive benefits.  You don’t have to have comprehensive immigration to secure the border, but you have to have a secure border to get comprehensive immigration reform.  You may be surprised, maybe you don’t think that there’d be any more incentive, but I’m not so sure that that’s true.  In any event, it doesn’t matter we’re supposed to secure the border.”

That’s why this is being done.  They want to get something in return for doing their duty.  And that’s—

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Chicago politics.

KYL: Yeah.

H/T: Scott McKay, The Hayride

The fact that Obama is denying this demonstrates how utterly despicable even he knows it is.

And, yet, just how is it in any way not in complete character with the Obama we’ve come to know and actively despise???

This is the Obama who made every sort of promise about his ObamaCare, and then systematically broke virtually all of them.  This is the Obama who has demagogued the Gulf disaster to try to gin up support for his godawful cap-and-trade boondoggle.  This is the Obama who made BP an “offer it couldn’t refuse” by threatening to criminally prosecute them even though there is no evidence yet of anything criminal, while Obama declared open war on BP’s stock price to force it to do what he wanted.

Obama hasn’t done anything about border security.  And he won’t, because Jon Kyle is telling the truth, and Barry Hussein is a lying demagogue.
