Texas Democrat Calls Obama “Aloof” and “Detached” on Border Crisis

When a Democratic president starts losing the support of Democrats, maybe it’s time to rethink your policy.

Yesterday on MSNBC, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) who represents a border district in Texas, had this to say about President Obama’s refusal to visit either the border or any of the detention facilities during his fundraising trip to the west:

Here’s a partial transcript of his comments:

“If they are worried about putting a face, the president’s face, to this human crisis, humanitarian crisis, I think it’s worse if he doesn’t even show up. Either way, he’s going to be tied into this humanitarian crisis. he either can roll up his sleeves and go down to the border, or he can just look aloof and detached and not go to the border, send surrogates down there, and say that he’s got everything under control.”

It should be noted that Cuellar is hardly a shining star on border security. He is on record as opposing a border fence, calling it “ineffective and misguided.” In short, Cuellar is no Tom Tancredo.

For such a Democrat to criticize a president of his own party on nationwide TV should be a wake-up call to the White House.

    Obama doesn’t want media attention on the border. If Obama goes to see the problem, the media will be forced to cover the story. Besides, Obama prefers the border be overrun with future DEM voters.
