    “Barack the Uniter” Didn’t Last Long

    “Barack the Uniter” Didn’t Last Long

    The appetizer from someone of enormous intellect:

    “As president, Barack Obama would be a genuine uniter.”

    Now on to the main course:

    I noted yesterday, to the surprise of many readers, that Obama’s 60 Minutes appearance was his best yet, and that the bin Laden killing was Obama’s finest moment to date.

    I even pointed out that Obama gave (some) credit to prior administrations, which is not his usual style.  He spoke nice words, with none of the (domestic) enemies-list verbiage which has been his stock in trade.

    That didn’t last long.

    In a speech on immigration today, Obama lashed out at and mocked Republicans, saying Republicans wanted to build an alligator infested moat at the border:

    “We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement,” Obama said. “But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I gotta say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goal posts on us one more time.”

    “Maybe they’ll need a moat,” Obama said mockingly to laughter from the crowd. “Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat.”

    I thought this Twitter reaction to the speech by Rory Cooper of The Heritage Foundation was appropriate:

    As was this tweet from Tim Carney of The Washington Examiner:

    I don’t know about you, but between the sleazy League of Women Voters ad against Scott Brown, and Obama’s alligator moat speech, I think I’m getting motivated again.

    Cowboy Curtis has good instincts. Balaam's ass would be just what the big nothing needs by his side as he wends his way down the pathway of US politics the next 18 months, but fortunately for the country he has neither the humility or self-awareness to comprehend this. In his thinking President Ego can do no wrong.

    El Paso had alligators in San Jacinto Plaza from 1883 to 1965, and from 1972 to 1974, right in the heart of downtown. So a moat with alligators would not be out of place.

    I've been thinking about this a lot lately…. maybe we shouldn't build a wall/fence or moat. Way things are going that desert might come in handy to go south someday.

    That which keeps people out can also keep people in.
