Visuals: Some of the thousands of children suffering in a humanitarian disaster at the US border on the top of the split screen. On the bottom, President Obama drinking beer and shooting pool with locals 246 miles away.
Audio: President on deploying National Guard to alleviate humanitarian crisis: “I’d be happy to consider it,” but it would be “a temporary solution.”
Face it: the press was going to blame George Bush for Katrina no matter what. That’s what the press does. I understand that.
But the Bush administration’s handling of the post-Katrina crisis was a visual disaster on par with the humanitarian disaster.
Don’t worry, though. This isn’t a critique of post-Katrina actions. It’s an observation of Obama’s handling of the what’s going on with the flood of illegals.
The Border Crisis is Obama’s Katrina.
First, Obama’s actions led led to the crisis. As we used to say during the Reagan Administration, ideas have consequences. As Senator Ted Cruz told Fox News:
It’s important to understand what causes this… President Obama unilaterally and illegally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who were here illegally who came as children.
I’ll say it again: no reasonable person will deny that the humanitarian disaster along the US Southern border is a disaster the President asked for.
And the crisis threatens to swamp the scale of Katrina.
Obama’s smug arrogance and complete lack of urgency or compassion for the children dumped on America’s door step borders on pathological. The crisis reveals Obama as a psychopath. If he really doesn’t care, he’s an indifferent psychopath. If the border disaster is a Cloward-Pivens tactic, he’s a power-hungry psychopath. Obama has no path out that doesn’t lead through the psychopathic jungle.
A glance at the mainstream media tells me that Obama’s amen chorus is ready to abandon their former hero. But I could be wrong, and it wouldn’t be the first time.
No matter what, Obama’s psychopathy is undeniable.
