Overheard at Table Two: Border Children

Lucky Moran:  what really bugs me is hearing Boehner talking yesterday about the President wanting $3.7 billion to send the kids back home, and then he just launches off into this tirade about how the President never takes responsibility for his action.

Otis Redwing:  that's a red herring, definitely.

Lucky:  I mean, how in the hell can you turn a border crisis into a personal blame game?

Otis:  that's Washington, my friend.

Lucky: just frikkin' nuts, I mean, look at it:  the President and the GOP want the same thing: TO CHANGE THE 2008 LAW AND EXPEDITE DEPORTATIONS!   So why are the House Republicans all "up in his grill" (as the kids like to say these days!) and blaming him for causing the problem?

Otis: you know what I think, my friend.

Lucky:  dude, no!  Not again!  No, it's not because he's black.

Otis: it's all because he's black.   These dudes have had their panties in a wad ever since they saw his high yellow skin come traipsing across that platform and the DNC.   They were all secretly rooting for Hillary to grab the nomination, because hell, they all know how to beat down a woman, they know how to manipulate and denigrate women, but a black man?  That's pushing all the secret buttons, right there.

Lucky:  dude, you can't keep playing the black card.   This is because he's a liberal, and the GOP just wants all the power.

Otis: how many times do we have to go over this?  You know as well as I do that both parties are in the same deep pocket.   What you just mentioned, that Obama wants the very same thing that the Republicans want, is absolute proof that this is a personal hatred.   They said they wouldn't agree with a damn thing he ever says or does, and they came out in his first time and laid out the plan.   Nobody does that unless it's personal.   And since he really hadn't had the time in Washington to build up any real enemies, and it can't be because he's a man, it's got to be because of who he represents, and he represents the success of the black man.

Lucky:  even when the black man is dancing to your own tune?

Otis:  they may have to allow him into the band, but they certainly don't like him hogging the spotlight!
