There is a travesty happening in the Gulf of Mexico with the Oil Spill by British Petroleum. It is spewing oil into the ocean at an unprecedented rate.
This is causing an issue with oil, environment, and the economy.
President Obama recently, in his infamous wisdom, stood in front of a group and proclaimed- “Just Plug the Damn Hole”.
While the Oil continues to spew in the Gulf, there is the conversation around the impending discussion for Cap and Trade, Oil Exploration, and other energy issues.
However, Obama realized that the Oil! was the problem. It continues to spew more and more oil into the Gulf, and thus he frustratingly complained and exclaimed- “Just Plug the Damn Hole!”
Here is where the confusion (and Hypocrisy in my opinion) begins.
For, just yesterday, President Obama met with the Republicans (for the first time in a year mind you), and had a discussion around immigration.
When he exited the meeting, his statements were to the effect of, “we discussed Border patrol, but any discussion on the border would need to be met with the Republicans making a movement toward comprehensive immigration reform”.
Thus, he tied the Border issue (which is leaking like a sieve), to the broader issue of immigration. His statement that in order for their to be movement on one, had to be met with a movement by the republicans on the other.
My comment- “Just Plug the Damn Hole”! What do I mean?
The Border is the hole! It is leaking like the Oil well in the Gulf.
Just plug the damn hole. Meaning- stop the leak at the border and THEN have a discussion on reform.
I don’t see the Republicans tying the issue of immigration and President Obama’s comments together.
So, again, I’m confused.
How is a leaky border tied to a different political agenda of immigration reform, when the oil spill isn’t tied to the larger issue of the environment?
Just a simple question I tend to ask.
Lastly, this just in- There is a terror link to Somali’s who are ….sneaking in through the border of Texas!
I wonder how long it is before there is an attack on US soil, from a group who snuck through the Border.
Yes Mr. President indeed- Just Plug the Damn Hole!
