More lies

Obama in El Paso yesterday illustrated perfectly how Obama will lie to win reelection:

Under Secretary Napolitano’s leadership, we have strengthened border security beyond what many believed was possible. They wanted more agents on the border. Well, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history. The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents – more than twice as many as there were in 2004, a build up that began under President Bush and that we have continued.

They wanted a fence. Well, that fence is now basically complete.

Well, perhaps this isn’t a lie because Obama has simply stopped building it. That counts as “completing”, right?

There are 53 miles of “virtual fence” and a combined total of 650 miles of the 1,900-mile boarder fenced. This is “security”? And Obama is mocking Americans who dispute this with his moat comment.

James R. Edwards Jr:

Obama claimed he has secured the border. Not so. The Government Accountability Office says we have operational control of only 129 miles of the 2,000-mile southern border. Apprehensions are down because of Washington’s orders not to take illegal crossers into custody.

Kevin D. Williamson on Obama’s visit:

In case you’ve missed it, Texas has seen about 3,400 square miles of land — an area about the size of Puerto Rico — destroyed by wildfires. Pres. Barack Obama hit Texas to do some political fund-raising and give some speeches about immigration; Gov. Rick Perry suggested that he take a gubernatorially guided tour of some of the damage. The president couldn’t be bothered, but asked the governor to come to El Paso to act as a prop at a political event. Governor Perry declined.

In Texas, President Obama has more important things to do, such as raising money and pandering to Hispanic voters by dangling the promise of “comprehensive” immigration reform before them, knowing that it’s a go-nowhere proposition. He’ll visit a city on a border that his government controls about as well as President Zardari controls his, and which is at times about as dangerous.

To its credit, the Obama administration has dispatched aircraft to help with the firefighting . . . in Mexico.

Of course, it’s not just Texas. Obama could care less about the swelling Mississippi as well.

One last bit before I go … apparently Obama is now spiking that football during his campaign speeches.
