The Wall Then and Now

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 9, 2018

         IN POLITICS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE CONSISTENT WITH YOUR POSITIONS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT. IF THAT IS THE CASE THE MEDIA WILL CONVENIENTLY IGNORE WHAT YOU SAID BEFORE IF WHAT YOU SAY NOW ALIGNS WITH THEIR BELIEFS.

         TAKE THE BORDER WALL, WHICH PRESIDENT TRUMP ADDRESSED LAST NIGHT. HILLARY CLINTON, BARACK OBAMA AND CHUCK SCHUMER WERE ONCE IN FAVOR OF A BARRIER, OR FENCE, OR WALL. NEVER MIND THE TYPE OF STRUCTURE. THEY WANTED TO REDUCE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. AS A SENATOR, BARACK OBAMA SAID IN 2006: “ THOSE WHO ENTER OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY AND THOSE WHO EMPLOY THEM DISRESPECT THE RULE OF LAW. AND BECAUSE WE LIVE IN AN AGE WHERE TERRORISTS ARE CHALLENGING OUR BORDERS, WE SIMPLY CANNOT ALLOW PEOPLE TO POUR INTO THE UNITED STATES UNDETECTED, UNDOCUMENTED, AND UNCHECKED. AMERICANS ARE RIGHT TO DEMAND BETER BORDER SECURITY AND BETTER ENFORCEMENT OF THE IMMIGRATION LAWS.”

THAT SPEECH COULD HAVE BEEN DELIVERED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP, BUT BECAUSE OBAMA SAID IT THE MEDIA AND OTHER LIBERALS IGNORE HIS WORDS IN FAVOR OF HIS POSITION – AND THAT OF HILLARY, BILL AND SCHUMER’S POSITIONS TODAY. IT’S POLITICS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
