Politicians playing politics with political games...

So, apparently Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson (Jeh?) is lobbying for folks to call their congresscritter and demand that the DHS Budget be passed.

For anyone not paying attention--which includes those disgusted with politics, and who can blame them?--the issue is that the House passed a DHS budget which specifically did not include funding for His Imperial Majesty, Barack Hussein Obama's proposed immigration amnesty.

The Senate has not even been able to vote on same due to a Democratic filibuster.

Part of Secretary Johnson's reasoning runs along the lines of "With ISIS/ISIL and Al Qaeda and Boko Haram and Al Shabab and all those other touchy-feely members of the Religion of Peace acting up, this is no time to play politics with money for Homeland Security!"

Some thoughts:
  • If the goat-humping neo-barbs are such a threat, maybe we should be tightening up on immigration, not throwing open the gates.
  • A year ago the filibuster was a tool of the devil. Now it is the sacred right of the minority party.
  • I guess it's only playing politics when the other guy doesn't do what you want.
  • Maybe it's just me, but I'm a little annoyed by a cabinet secretary lobbying like this.
  • I was going to comment on the hypocrisy of blaming the GOP for this, but never mind.
  • And, of course, the media playing cheerleader for HIMBHO & Minions.
I think I need to go re-inventory ammo...
