Slightly better than giving you Fvx at this hour, Morning Schmoe is semi-back from break, and Scarborough is all about kicking some PBO hiney about the humanitarian crisis at the Border. Governor Good Hair Rick Perry's stretch o' the fence.
We have all said or thought this a gazilion times about some of the asshats he has to interact with, but "Poor President Obama."
This time it's a Hairy Perry bully demand, not a respectful request for a presidential visit from a sitting governor. Perry has puffed out his Texas chest and bellowed that he wouldn't be doing any handshake on the tarmac with Barack Obama.
This comes on the egregious heels of Perry's Tin Foil Hat PBO latest … Obama himself is behind the humanitarian crisis at the Border. [Perry may be even less in touch with reality than we currently suppose.]
So, according to MSNBC sourcing, the president and the guv'nah will be meeting behind closed doors … and we so wanted a 'shake your fist in Obama's face' photo op, blast. Which fired Ole' One Way Joe, have a gawk for yourself and I'll see you with shared frustration on the other side.
The smug is getting worse as Obama gets closer to the clean exit, it's like Regressive Right blood in the water.
Perry and his glasses may not be running again (Hah!) in 2016, but as Rachel Maddow illustrated Monday night, he has some culpability in this Border Crisis.
President Obama does head out to Texas today, for two days of fundraising and with no advance-noticed plans to visit the border … which some have blown up into a faux Fvx Hair Aflame Scandale, and some conservative hate baiter editorialized this - ahead of time - "Obama's Katrina Moment."
President Obama isn't a showman. He's not going to announce ahead of time that he is going to go down to the borders and see what is happening to the women and children, primarily, caught in this tragic cycle of entry, detention and legal action.
There are not many good options. The president visited the border from Texas in 2011, and though no official plans have been put forward for Obama to re-route there in the next couple of days, liberals can easily seeing him doing that.
Without the hype and Regressive Right sportscasting. For a sane look at the immigration crisis, Lawrence O'Donnell had a factual look.
Praise Jeebus for the evening Voices of Reason.
