Biden, who’s spent three years denying the crisis and allowing millions of migrants to pour through, now solemnly declares: “We all know the border’s been broken,” and “It’s long past time to fix it,” as if someone else has been sitting in the Oval Office all this time.
“Just give me the power. . . . I’ve asked from the very day I got into office,” he lies.
No: He’s asked for more resources to wave the migrants along, and for laws that let him fully legalize them.
Heck, even the bill he says would let him fix everything is stalled in good measure because Democrats won’t go along with limits on the president’s power to end-run current law by “paroling” millions of migrants who don’t even comply with the rules for seeking asylum.
The dumbest thing about his “powerless” line, though, is that it leaves voters who want action no choice but to opt for a candidate who says he (or she) can and will deliver action, not lame excuses.
