“”The more he talked the more he got upset,” Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) said. “He needs to talk a valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans and just calm down, and don’t take anything so seriously. If you disagree with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re attacking their motives – and he takes it that way and tends then to lecture and then gets upset.”
LOL…another temper tantrum.

Note: Barack Obama announced shortly after the meeting that he would send 1200 troops to the US-Mexico border… that is one person for every 1.67 miles, if they work 24/7 !!

      Personally, I think that immigration reform should begin with all illegals going home and getting in line, just as my great-grandparents did. And a note to Nancy Pelosi, a large percentage of those here illegally are here with their allegiance to their homeland, where 90% of their earnings are sent. They are not here for our healthcare….. they are simply providing for their family back home.

       Healthcare reform is necessary, but not a government takeover, and Immigration reform is necessary, but not woth amnesty programs.
