Well, Obama’s latest commentary on politics was rather unexpected.
While numerous Republicans have routinely excoriated the escalating crisis on Biden’s border, including Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, whose state is especially vulnerable to the catastrophe, Democrats have largely blown off the border.
Instead, the Democrats have been fixated on pushing through multi-trillion dollar spending packages that equate to little more than socialist wish lists on steroids, not to mention periodically ranting and raving over the border when it suits them.
Such as when they can bash law enforcement for “whipping” migrants, though multiple videos have since debunked yet another false narrative peddled by the Democrats.
However, Obama has opted for a different approach in terms of commenting on the border crisis, including the suggestion that the current administration is not “dealing with this problem in a systemic way.”
“[The situation in Del Rio] is a painful reminder that we don’t have this right yet and we’ve got more work to do … As big-hearted as he is, nobody understands that better than Joe Biden …
And the question is now: Are we gonna get serious about dealing with this problem in a systemic way, as opposed to these one-offs where we’re constantly reacting to emergencies? And I think that that’s something that every American should wanna put an end to.” [Source: Fox News]
Oh wow. All of the sudden it’s “every” American with Obama?
Guess Obama’s a fan of unity when it suits him, though it’s unclear why Obama suddenly feels the need to criticize the current state of Biden’s borders, curiously without even mentioning Trump!
Obama’s commentary also becomes especially intriguing when he openly admits that the nation currently has open borders, which flies in the face of the various excuses made by the likes of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and others.
“Immigration is tough. It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that wants to help others … And we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they’re in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe …
At the same time, we’re a nation state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that … as a practical matter, is unsustainable.” [Source: Fox News]
So, in other words, Obama has basically expressed more agreement with Republicans than Biden’s administration.
Then again, consider the “plans” proposed by the Biden administration, notably the “plan” from the aforementioned Mayorkas.
“We have a plan, we are executing our plan and that takes time.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, that’s a compelling plan with an even more compelling time frame (not).
Obama’s commentary is even more intriguing considering that it emerges at the same time that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has launched a lawsuit against the Biden administration over its “catch and release” policies, which in turn threaten the state’s sovereignty.
“The Biden administration’s illegal border policies cause Florida harm … Many of the aliens illegally released by the Biden administration are arriving, or will arrive in Florida, harming the state’s quasi-sovereign interests and forcing it to incur millions of dollars in expenses.” [Source: Fox News]
Provided Florida fights against sanctuary cities, at least “millions” of illegal votes won’t be cast in the state … unless, of course, elections are federalized.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis himself also blasted the Biden administration’s policies in a letter last month, proclaiming that such illegal resettlement should indeed occur in states who are apparently in favor of open borders.
After all, Newsom needed a sizable boost to actually cling to his governorship in the recent recall election in California.
Which is precisely why DeSantis distinguishes between legal immigration and California-style immigration.
“I ask that DHS immediately cease any further resettlement of illegal aliens in Florida and that the aliens instead be removed from the United States or resettled in states that support the administration’s continued flouting of our immigration laws …
Floridians welcome responsible immigration that serves the interests of Florida and the American people, but we cannot abide the lawlessness that your department is aiding and abetting on the southwest border.” [Source: Fox News]
So, in other words, both DeSantis and Obama acknowledge the effective “aiding and abetting on the southwest border.”
The question is, what’s Obama’s objective? While DeSantis’s is clearly patriotism, Obama’s is clearly motivated by some sinister influence …
Who knows, perhaps by openly calling out the Biden administration’s incompetence, and having a media microphone to do so, Obama just might be indirectly ushering in Kamala to “finish the job” of his administration …
