Why are all those kids showing up at the border? The New York Times says they’re escaping gang violence in big cities in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.
Should some of them find their way to Chicago they can enjoy the blessings of liberty while feeling right at home. Over the Fourth of July weekend 17 people were murdered and 82 wounded by gunfire in Chicago.
Looks like some have found their way to Chicago.
Colorado Senator Mark Udall didn’t show up for his own fundraiser in Denver yesterday. The president did. He also shot pool with Governor Hickenlooper and shook hands with a horse. He was offered a hit of marijuana but turned it down. Fortunately, Maureen Dowd wasn’t in town to offer him a candy bar.
Rich Lowry calls the border crisis Obama’s “man caused disaster“.
Republicans see something Lebron James didn’t. They’re coming to Cleveland for their 2016 national convention.
If Republicans are betting a Cleveland convention will reel in Ohio’s 18 electoral votes, Al Hunt at Bloomberg might be happy to take a little of that action:
History, however, suggests the convention venue usually has little bearing on the outcome. The last four Republican conventions have been held in Pennsylvania (Philadelphia), New York (New York City), Minnesota (St. Paul) and Florida (Tampa.) The Republican candidate failed to carry those states in each of those general elections.
Anyway, Cleveland is thrilled to have the convention but it still hasn’t forgotten about LeBron. The current front menu page of the Plain Dealer has 2 links to convention stories and 3 links to James stories.
Last week, in Minnesota, President Obama complained that Republicans were “messin”” with him and “calling him names“. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a president say that before. Well, maybe one time. Here‘s President Obama last year.
The constitutional lawyer-in-chief added on Monday that the failure of Congress to get on board with his agenda would be justification for him to further go it alone.
Messin’ with Obama
This came after a week of of being rebuked by the Supreme Court for executive overreach.
