Yep that that is a trait not unique to the right.
Obama is stopping in Dallas and Austin this week for Democratic fundraisers and a public meeting about the economy.
More than 52,000 unaccompanied immigrant youth have been caught along the Southwest border this fiscal year, almost double last year’s total. The epicenter of the crisis is the valley, where more than 37,000 were apprehended this year, almost triple last year’s total.
We had a small break-through there Neo, but you went right back into defense mode.

Didn't the Governor of this state not just snub Obama for the same reason? No photo op?
It is "bad press" to be seen with Obama these days.
Even some Democrats are avoiding him.
Especially the ones running for office this year.
APME was part of a large group of media organizations that recently sent a letter of protest to the White House about diminished access to President Obama by photojournalists. The groups also protested the administration’s frequent releases of "official” photographs in lieu of allowing independent photojournalists to make their own images. APME is now asking you to help us keep the pressure on the White House to open access to presidential events that were routinely open to the media under past administrations going back decades. Here are two key ways you can do that: ⦁ Avoid using "official” photographs provided by the White House. Many media organizations have unwittingly helped facilitate the White House’s unacceptable closure of routine events involving the president by publishing the official photographs, sometimes taking them directly from the White House Flickr feed. ⦁ Consider writing editorials to expose the White House’s practice of excluding photojournalists and to pressure the Obama administration to change its policies. And if you write editorials, please understand that this is not an attack on the president’s personal photographer, Pete Souza, who is a respected photojournalist. This is a protest not against Souza but against the policies of his employer, who happens to be the federal government – more specifically, a president whose pledge of transparency in government is undermined by such policies of exclusion. It’s important to note that the AP distributes official White House handout photos only when "we feel the news value is compelling and the photo was taken in a place logically off limits to journalists, like the private residence,” said Santiago Lyon, AP vice president and director of photography. Such instances are handled on a case-by-case basis and authorized by senior AP news managers, he said, adding that use of such photos by the AP is unusual. "We reject most White House handouts, because they are photos of events and in locations that we believe should have been covered by independent journalists,” Lyon said.
KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON THE WHITE HOUSE
All you seem to care about it the propaganda and lies coming from the Democrats, but even when you understand the same is coming from the Right and you're all being played like a fiddle on this immigration issue.....you just ignore it and go back to raging about the Left.

Republicans are just like the democrats....they only cry about it being "the law" when it serves their political purpose.
I didn't see them crying about the illegal Patriot Act or warrant-less wire-tapping. Why is that? Hmmmm

All I hear is Republican, Democrat, Republican, Democrat, left, right, left, right.
Can we stop that, are we all so dumb that we do not see that picking a side is not the right way to move forward? We need what is best for the people of this great country. Things will never change though, every argument will always spiral into a left, right crap fest ad nauseum til infinity, and this country falling apart completely.
Sad, sad state of affairs truly.[/quote
Lol I hardly read political post anymore because you see the same morons defending their gangs. It's low frequency BS.
