In a press conference in Dallas on Wednesday, President Obama responded to critics who noted he was refusing to visit the border in a time of crisis. "This isn't theater," the President said, before going further and saying "I'm not interested in photo ops."


'Not' interested in photo ops! !

Whaaat ?

Since when ?

For the last 6 YEARS it has been never letting a good prop go to waste' Quick take my picture' to preserve how 'awesome' Obama is!

Why won't you go to the border Mr. 'President' ?

WHY ?

Playing pool and drinking beer, fund raising 'more' important eh Mr'. 'President' ?

Guess what there oh 'glorious' one ?

Lots of pictures were taken on those occasions!

Democrat lawmaker lashes out at Obama for playing pool and drinking beer in Colorado photo-op instead of visiting crisis-hit border

They say a picture is worth a thousands of words.

Here is one of two.



Not a 'photo op' eh.

Perry: 'I Don't Know' Whether Obama Heard Me

No Perry I don't think he did.

The above is my opinion there are many like it, but this one is mine.

Classic.

This is the same Pres that did a big photo op with Bob Bergdahl's parents in the Rose Garden.

But our Border's security isn't worth the time.

Holy agenda...this guy does suck ass.

Why did Dear Leader have to walk around the Jersey Shore after Sandy?

Sorry, not a right-winger. Not everyone who detests Dear Leader is of that political persuasion.

Obama would visit the border if...There was a nice golf course nearby or...He felt he could cause greater damage if he did.

Because that is his JOB.

Since the Potus can't be bothered to go there.

Not much of a 'crisis'.

Nice political trolling there.

Yeah even more so when one looks up that the US is one of the largest arms dealer in the world.

That arms terrorist regimes in the ME to the DRUG CARTELS down Mexico way.

Not interested in photo ops, eh?

Maybe it's more like "not interested in contracting TB."

I'm so glad he sent half of these kids to Ft. Sill, just 30 miles from my home. I actually had to tell my mom that she can't take my kiddo to Lawton/Ft. Sill to the movies or out to eat for a while
All it will take is one health care worker or social worker to contract TB from one of these children and then go to the movies, the mall or a restaurant and before you know it, it could be all over Comanche county.

Since he cares so much about these children, he should take them to his house and expose his family to whatever they have to offer...but no. He won't even go down there himself.

Did he stutter?

Exactly what kind of photo-op would have satisfied you Neo?

President Obama standing somewhere near the border - looking at a bunch of travel weary children with a stern expression?

President Obama giving a bunch of illegals the finger?

Tell me - what were you looking for exactly?

:-)

I get the feeling you don't actually like President Obama

Politics is theatre.

Read from a script.

Him going to the border would have 'satisfied' me.

Instead of drinking beer,playing pool, and fund raising for his party.

Was there a point there ?

Really ?

Considering he uses government agencies to target people like me.

Like the DOJ, and the IRS.

Doesn't take a degree to know the feeling is mutual.

Coming from Obama, that means it's 100% *Theater*

He has a rich history of distortion.

I don't doubt for a minute that Obama is all about the great photo ops, but I have to give him credit on this one for calling it for what it is.

This "crisis" on the border is a half-assed manufactured outrage by the Right to stir up it's base and grant them an opportunity to not only push a signature issue just before the election cycle, but to also get in some perfect photo ops.

Obama is being hypocritical, but at least he got a good poke to his naysayers in there.

Just for snip and giggles.



I would really love to know the answer to this.

Fixed for accuracy.

Just add water.

Bucket loads of it.

I'd have been happy with a photo of him spending time with, or holding, or reading to the kids he claims to care so much about.

Oh wait... Obama doesn't want to get sick.

Didn't the Governor of this state not just snub Obama for the same reason? No photo op?

Point?

Humor

:-)

If he had gone people would be hollerin' about how insincere he is - and how it was just a photo OP

Maybe a photo of him waving a gun around would do the trick - in the general direction of the border?

I'm not sure why it bothers you so much - all politicians do the photo-op thing. Except maybe when the situation doesn't call for it

Advocates to Obama: Border Kid Crisis Not About Immigration

In a conference call with reporters, Michelle Brané of the Women's Refugee Commission said it was "personally offensive" for Obama to tell children crossing the border that they should not come because they will be sent back, saying many of the children, with adequate legal representation, would win asylum cases.

The governments of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala have a "clear humanitarian situation on the ground," said Leslie Vélez, Senior Protection Officer of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

She said this was clearly the case since the "displacement" was first seen internally within these countries and only afterward did it spread to neighboring countries, not just the U.S.

Between 2012 and 2013, Nicaragua saw a 238 percent increase in asylum applications from children and families fleeing neighboring countries. Honduras has the world's highest homicide rate and El Salvador and Guatemala also wrestle with high levels of gang violence and organized crime.


Some people want him to send in the National Guard - he's not being tough enough.

Some think he's being too tough - and kinda mean

Some just think he's being mean wrong - or nice wrong

What a pickle - I'd be playing pool and drinking beer too
