On Obama: “It’s absurd for him now to try to take credit on that issue when he was nowhere to be seen.”

Obama made a speech to the League of United Latin American Citizens today. He made this claim:

It’s why I reached across the aisle in the Senate to fight for comprehensive immigration reform.

One U.S. Representative had a rebuttal. Here’s the full quote from Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart:

I as a House member was intimately involved in many of the meetings where Senator McCain was leading the effort to try to get comprehensive immigration reform passed. And Senator Obama was consistently and absolutely AWOL, nowhere to be seen in any of the meetings that we held on this issue of immigration. It’s absurd for him now to try to take credit on that issue when he was nowhere to be seen.

and…

He was an absolute non-player. He was absolutely AWOL on the issue of immigration. It’s absolutely absurd now to try to take credit for having tried to save that bill.

There’s so much we don’t know about Obama. Gratefully, others who have spent a couple of years with him are glad to fill us in.

Maybe Obama’s the guy that REALLY created the internet!

  1. Same Old…The politics of leading the sheep to the slaughter. He is slicker than “Slick Willie”. People will leave a life of socialism to their children and grandchildren but they will feel “good” doing it.

  2. I guess we better start smokin’ whatever Obama’s been smokin’ all these years.
