“Dem. Rep. Cuellar: WH Called Me For Speaking Out against President”
What’s so funny about this is that Mark Levin, on his show, played the audio of Cuellar speaking out against the surge of illegals and the Obama Administration’s failure to see it coming [which, wrong assertion: they saw it coming, invited it to come, and are supportive of its effects, which match the aims of a Cloward-Piven Marxist strategy to crash the system and destroy the middle class. But that’s just nitpicking – ed], then joked that Rep Cueller had better be careful, because a “thin-skinned” President like Obama won’t take kindly to being contradicted by someone in his own party.
And he was exactly right.
Which isn’t some miracle of prognostication, but rather an observation gleaned by observation and empirical fact: Obama likes to take to the stage and try to ironize away those who call him a cold, malignant narcissist and imperial President. He loves the cheers he gets when his own corrupted vision of himself is reinforced by handpicked sycophants sent in to keep his spirits up. He’s a permanent campaigner for a reason: he can’t handle criticism, and those who dare criticize him need to be punished.
The truth is, President Pant Crease, sold to us as a center-realist and pragmatic thinker — a faculty lounge genius — is a rank, programmed, Marxist ideologue. His is — and always has been — to “pragmatism” what Daisy Duke was to full-length slacks.
And politically speaking, he’s never, ever, ever, ever, never, ever, ever, ever ever been a “good man” — which is precisely why it was so outrageous and self-congratulating to give him that kind of early cover.
Representative Henry Cuellar (D., Texas) hasn’t been shy about speaking out against the Obama administration’s handling of the border crisis, and that apparently earned him a phone call from the someone at the White House.
“Yes, I have,” Cuellar said on Fox & Friends on Wednesday when asked if he had received a talking-to. “But let me just say that I’m more concerned not about who gets angry at me at the White House; I’m more concerned about my constituents who want to find a practical solution to this question that we’re facing down there at the border.”
“Who called you?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.
“We’ll just leave it like that,” Cuellar responded.
“Did they tell you to pipe down?” Kilmeade pressed again.
“We’ll just leave it like that,” the congressman repeated. “But notice what I’m doing: I’m still talking about it.”
Sounds like a nascent Reagan Democrat. Or even a TEA Partier.
Oh, and notice, too, that he’s not in need of any Hispandering from Jeb Bush or the GOP establishment, whose goal it is to provide cheap labor for their cronies and kickback champions. Instead, he seems, as a man close to the crisis, to be married to principle — at least on this issue, and at least as regards his own empirical observations.
Which means he has all the makings of an outlaw.
A designation you’re supposed to laugh at and dismiss, because it’s only always been about me trying to make money and never about fidelity to first principles. Because doesn’t everyone just go for hits and links? I mean, isn’t that the object of the game? — the very ends that the means are designed to bring about?
