Cool Obama taunts Republicans on illegal child immigration and says they must 'rediscover the concept of negotiation and compromise' to approve his $3.7 BILLION funding request

    The president spoke in Dallas following a meeting with officials and church leaders about the children flooding into the U.S. from Central America
    He calmly called the deluge a 'humanitarian situation,' not a crisis
    Obama deflected calls for him to visit the U.S.-Mexico border, insisting that his new Homeland Security secretary had gone five times already
    Said his 'comprehensive' immigration reform bill could have prevented the crisis because it would have freed up resources by no longer chasing longer-term illegals
    Refused to acknowledge that tens of thousands of minors have poured into the U.S. because he relaxed deportations of young people in 2012
    Claimed Texas Gov. Rick Perry asked hm to act without Congress, then mocked House Speaker John Boehner's lawsuit aimed at stopping go-it-alone executive orders

President Barack Obama coolly taunted congressional Republicans on Wednesday for dithering on his demand for billions to handle a flood of illegal immigration children streaming across the U.S.-Mexico border. At the same time he flatly denied that his own policy decisions have led to the rapidly expanding human tragedy.

Calling the deluge a 'humanitarian situation on the border,' not an emergency or crisis, he parried claims that a 2012 executive order delaying the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants – those who had arrived in the U.S. as children before the summer of 2007 – incentivized children in Central America to make dangerous journeys to and across the Rio Grande river.

'I think the challenge we have that has really caused a spike,' Obama said in Dallas, 'is the significant security challenges in the Central American countries themselves, and smugglers who increasingly recognize that they can make money transporting individuals ....across the border.'

Those conditions haven't significantly evolved since he took office in 2009, many Republicans point out. But a series of reports from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador indicate that his policy, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), was widely misinterpreted to mean that today's under-18 set could enter the U.S. and stay indefinitely.

I heard Pat Buchanan, on Neil Cavuto's show. Buchanan urged Republican unity !!

I often disagree with Buchanan, but a wordsmith he was, and continues to be. The GOP culd use more of that.

And what ever happened to "daily talking points?" Does the GOP ever have them, now?

LOL!  'Misinterpreted'?  I don't think so...
