Reuters published these two photos from President Obama’s meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry Wednesday. The president and the governor met in Dallas to discuss the humanitarian crisis on the Texas-Mexico border. The federal government estimates that 57,000 unaccompanied children have been taken in after illegally crossing into the United States.

In the two photos, Gov. Perry and his team appear to be taking the moment seriously. President Obama is grinning and laughing.

Obama himself has described the situation on the border as a “humanitarian crisis.”

President Obama refuses to visit the border while he is in Texas this week, despite the fact that while he is in Austin for a fundraiser he will be a short flight from the Rio Grande Valley. The vast majority of the illegal crossings are occurring in that region.

President Obama has requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding to handle the crisis, with most of that going to process and care for the children, not secure the border.

What a photo. Perry is not sitting across from Obama. Why?
It is time for impeachment of this fool. Stop worrying about elections and riots and say enough is enough.

That's the laughter of someone who has his enemies where he wants them, and knows there is nothing they can do about it.

Look at the guy sitting opposite of the woman staffer.

He is frowning big time. Is he thinking "We are getting EFFED, We are getting EFFED"

all the while the Obama team is laughing thinking "There is nothing you can do about it

Impeachment is not going to be stiff enough.
Take what is left of our Military and Bring High Crime Charges onto him.
As Commander-In-Chief he deserted his military post when the Benghazi battle was in progress.
Meanwhile, load those Illegals on a plane to Hawaii incare of the New Obama Safe Haven Estate he has purchased for himself. The grounds would make a super tent city.

You're right! It is just like High School.
Obama acts like he never grew up. I think that comes from his abandonment issues. Both his parents dumped him. Some kids become shy and insecure. Others are insecure, but they cover it up by acting overly confident.

I often think that Obama has to be one screwed up man

I have seen this scene many times before. This is High School, and the popular kids (aka, the mean kids) just made some snide, mocking comment, and they are all laughing about it.

Of course, the other side is not slinking away. They are scowling, because this is a very serious situation, and the other side is goofing.

And yes, Perry is sitting in the wrong seat, probably so he doesn't run the risk of slugging Obama in exactly this kind of situation. Very prescient of him. He knows exactly the nature of this clown.

Nope, not laughing; rather, it is a defiant rictus ( fixed grimace or grin) of derision toward Perry and all who oppose him at the table. Obama's body language and facial expression suggest that he could not care less about the border situation or anyone who is attempting to tell him (how dare they!) that it is a crisis. He will be the last one -- the very last one -- to admit REALITY. Narcissist in Chief!

Everyone should stay calm. The photo opt is O going hyena for his minions back at the WH. He’s also trying to egg on anyone that might want to impeach him. He thinks he will win; narcissists usually do. They always believe they have their opponents on the ropes; right up until the moment the latter come in to finish them off.

The fool’s power will be almost gone after the Midterms and there’s even a slim chance that a more honest Congress will impeach and remove him from office.

Given the calamitous conditions at the Texas border, for which he is mostly responsible, it's obvious that Obama took advantage of the availability of legalized pot when he visited Colorado, and partook of it heavily before meeting up with Gov. Perry in Texas.
And from the look on Perry's face, it's equally obvious Obama did not share any of it with him.

See and share http://www.barrysoetoro.net and take time to thank a Democrat voter for placing a socialist anti-american muslim in the Whitehouse. Might want to also thank a third party vote throw awayer.
