RUSH: A couple of sound bites for you. These are interesting. We’re gonna go back to May 10th, 2011, El Paso, Texas. Obama went down there and in his typical arrogant, condescending way, mocked all of us who said the border was not secure. This is one of the previous efforts that the Regime and the DC establishment were engaged in to secure amnesty, and the anti-amnesty forces like us were demanding that before you do anything, before you talk to us about amnesty or how to bring ’em out of the shadows, secure the border. And Obama went down there to El Paso, which is right across the bridge from Juarez, and mocked everybody who said the border wasn’t secure. We have two sound bites.

OBAMA: They wanted more agents at the border. Well, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history. The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents, more than twice as many as there were in 2004. There’s a buildup that began under President Bush and that we’ve continued. Then they wanted a fence. Well, the fence is now basically complete.

RUSH: Right. So he goes down to El Paso, he mocks everybody for wanting more border security, and then starts bragging about how much more there is. And now when you go back and look at this and compare his attitude and what he was saying to how well whatever he was doing or did back then is working, you find out it’s pointless and minimal. Here’s the next bite.

OBAMA: All the stuff they asked for we’ve done, but even though we’ve answered these concerns, I’ve gotta say, I suspect there is still gonna be some who are trying to move the goalposts on us one more time. They said we needed to triple the Border Patrol. Well, now they’re gonna say we need to quadruple the Border Patrol or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.

RUSH: Never be satisfied. Yeah, could be our motto. “Never be satisfied as long as you’re in charge of fixing things because they don’t get fixed.” So he goes down there, brags and mocks and talks about all these massive improvements, but no matter what he does, no matter how many fixes he engenders, no matter how many steps he takes to secure the border, we’re never gonna be satisfied, we’re never gonna be happy, we’re always gonna be asking for more. Looked at three years later, who deserves to be mocked? Certainly not us.
