Where is presidential compassion?

From page A7 | July 17, 2014 |

Where is this president’s compassion and conscience? Is he devoid of all humanity save that dealing with partisan politics? He orchestrated this unprecedented border crisis of human misery befalling tens of thousands of unaccompanied children who are entering the country illegally from Central America through Mexico.

Obviously he dismisses the human trafficking, the physical and sexual assaults, the disease and hunger. So far, he won’t even deign to visit the border during a fundraising visit to Texas.

Everything is political with him. He’s flooding the country with these kids because Congress will not grant amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants already in the country and his backers are pro-amnesty. So he uses his pen and phone. A deluge of undocumented future Democrats are part of his fundamental transformation of America into greater government dependency for a vast underclass financed by we the taxpayers.

Gang members and those afflicted with scabies, head lice and now cases of tuberculosis, a communicable and often-fatal disease, are all being bused or flown to destinations throughout the United States. The potential for a health crisis is staggering.

The press has a gag order not to report the unhygienic detention facilities and even a U.S. congressman was not permitted to visit one of the centers. Border guards are under a gag order not to divulge the degree of mayhem and disorganization in the detention centers and are being forced to change diapers and look after children – not to protect our border.

Now Obama wants several billion dollars to clean up his mess? Who’s he kidding? The cost would be considerably cheaper to provide medical treatment and food, then safe transportation home. The National Guard needs to reclaim our border. The president needs to obey the laws of the land.

King Obama counts on low-information Americans to once again accept what he decrees, despite the consequences. In the meantime, he plays pool and does what he knows best – fundraising and blaming Republicans.

    Exactly CD, same old Marci speak, YADA YADA YADA. Mike Kirchubel hit it right on the nose. Now even I, who voted for Barack both times, the first time as a Republican (NO MORE), am disappointed by Barack's overall results, but I still place the majority of blame on the party of, NO>>NO>>NO, BLOCK>>BLOCK>>BLOCK, which led me to become, NON-DECLARED after nearly 40 yrs. of being a REPUG. To be against the man, from day one ("WE will make him fail,">>Mitch McConnell), simply to me was just too obvious (and WRONG) as to WHY, whether folk like Marci will admit it or not.

    SK: No need to pull punches. The "why" was the decision to play the OTHER race card, the one we're forbidden from discussing. Racism pervades America, and it's why McConnell knew, on "day one," he could get away with a remark like that and it would play well for his side.

    CD some of what Fox communicates daily is true and accurate. Don't keep drinking the Obama punch! He is destroying our country for decades to come. Probably will never recover for all of his failures. Thank god Israel stands up and protects its citizens!

    Personally, I miss her fact-less fringe-right rants. It's funny to think she cares about the President's lack of compassion, yet personifies the reason nothing gets done to help them.

    Kirchy why don't you guys ever address the issues instead of throwing out the FOXism rants? Defend the recruiting of foreigners with the promise of free dual citizenship and American worker funded entitlements to foreigners and virtually nothing for American citizen homeless?

    RLW, ain't it though? I almost cried, reading her letter. Her big hearted compassion really shined through. Faniel, what do you want me to defend? And why? I must not be reading the same propaganda as you. Is this something Fox is pushing? Or the Heritage Club for men?

    WE have a problem on the southern border. WE elected a Congress (Senate and HR) that is politically afraid to act. WE elected a President who views and acts on everything politically. Our elected officials operate on the idea that if the "letter of the law" suits my needs in this moment, that's what I do; and if the "spirit of the law" works in this situation, that's what I will do. WE have exactly what we deserve based on the types that WE elect. WE need to wake up, because this American dream is quickly becoming an American nightmare.

    Aren't the "elected officials" you refer to only one, the president?

    rlw, although I appreciate your unique ability to read minds, you are not all that good at reading comments. I never single out the President, however, I do include him.

    OK, who else then? Only the president has the power to issue executive orders.

  • TJ BairdJuly 17, 2014 - 9:55 am

    I never mentioned EO's. The President has made a request to Congress for 3.7 billion, I believe hoping that they will move some legislation through. My point is simply we don't need more men and women "playing" politics, we more men and women being statesmen/women and solving the mounting problems. That is not the atmosphere of Washington and it only continues to get worse, with contributions from both Republicans and Democrats.

    I'm merely asking for clarification, and you're being evasive. What elected officials are picking and choosing when to enforce the letter of the law and the spirit of the law other than Obama?

    Reply | Report abusive comment
  • TJ BairdJuly 17, 2014 - 12:22 pm

    It is the role of the Administration to enforce the laws of the land. Are all the laws good? No. Are all the laws adequate for a situation? No. But to answer your question, it is the President's role and responsibility to execute the laws that are passed by Congress, whether the name of the POTUS is Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, Lincoln or Washington. Or whether they like it or not. It is a simple understanding of the Constitutional responsibilities of the Executive Branch.

    So why did you vaguely say "elected officials" instead of "president?"

    OK, class, let's begin. Ignoring the first two rhetorical questions, how did Obama "orchestrate" this crisis? Some of you have already said the crisis was an "unforeseen consequence" of Obama's executive orders. Which is it?

    Daniel, again you bring BS with nothing to back it up. Faniel, Daniel’s a lost cause with no credibility what-so-ever so let’s try your take. Okay let’s talk about the issues and since you made the challenge, let’s see what you have? I challenge any of you to cite sources and context like Daniel suggests that Obama has promised anyone free dual citizenship. Furthermore, please cite source and context for the alleged “gag order.” And who “issued it.” Please recommend a reputable non-Conservative publication. Marci practically plagiarized this tripe from any number of erroneous sources. Total garbage.
