Obama's 2,300 Word Texas Speech Doesn't Mention Securing the Border Once

In a 2,300-word Democratic National Committee speech in Austin, Texas, today, Pres. Obama detailed his agenda items - without mentioning a single word about securing the southern borders.

Obama was 2,100 words into the speech before he even mentioned "borders," when he said he has put forth a piece of legislation "to care for them (illegal alien children) and help deal with the borders."

But, before mentioning "borders," Obama first discussed other topics like:

  • "Job Growth,"
  • "The Affordable Care Act,"
  • "The Deficit," and
  • "Our Energy Market."

Obama mentioned the need for "immigration reform" to allow illegal aliens to stay in the country four times, before bringing up "borders" in a recap of his conversation earlier that day with Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Obama said he told Gov. Perry that he was willing to listen to Perry's "ideas" - but, that he's too busy helping illegal alien children to be able to do anything about the governor's concerns:

"I told Rick Perry today, I said, I'm happy to listen to your ideas, but right now, the main problem I've got with respect to these unaccompanied children is I've just put forward a piece of legislation before Congress that would give us the resources to care for them and help deal with the borders, the all the things you say you want, Governor, and somehow I haven't heard yet from the Republican delegation of Texas to say this is such an urgent problem that they're going to move this quickly and get it done. So if you can't even do the things you say you want to do, how are we going to get anything done?"
