The right wing media and repub party is making a thing out of Kamala not going to the US/Mexico border

I know she'll go eventually but shouldn't she just do it to shut them up? Obviously it's more symbolic and she's rightfully focusing more on the issues that cause the border crisis. The problem is we know in the right wing world, facts and logic do not matter. Some repub congressmen even have daily updates on their social media about how many days she's been VP and not going to the border (she has been when she was a senator). I fear it'll be the new idiotic rallying cry for the midterms so I hope Kamala goes soon

At the same time, you know some idiots in the mainstream media will be all too willing to keep asking Kamala why she hasn't been to the border yet as VP.

Again the causes for the border crisis matter much more but the symbolism of going to the border is something that a lot of idiotic voters would care about.

Why does Kamala need to go to the border? What's that going to solve? She needs to push immigration reform, not do a field trip.

by Anonymousreply 406/08/2021

R4 the right wing claims without going to the border she can't claim she knows what is going on there.

Again handling the issues behind what causes the border issue is the key but the repubs like the flashy object and symbolism of being at the border. Fox has basically camped out there to exaggerate and inflame things in recent months

It shouldn't be this way but right wing media has proven to be very effective at crafting false narratives and then rallying enough moderates/independents behind it to trouble Democrats

No matter what she does, it will be the wrong thing according to the Talibangelical Right, and their Fox "noise-machine news", and the evil Republicans in Congress. She could go to Tijuana, and they'll say she should have gone to Laredo. She'd go to Laredo and they would say she should have gone to Juarez or Nogales. There's no way to "win" this. They all are talking from the same page, because it's arranged ahead of time.

I still don’t get what the point of her coming to the border would be.

She’s actually in Mexico, talking to leaders there. She went to Guatemala.

This is very true. The same is true about the left regarding Trump and the Republicans (though Trump rarely did anything right as a matter of fact.) The point is that too many people pick a side and are all black and white rather than exercise critical thinking and forming their own conclusions.

There are different reports as to what’s going on. A presidential administration should be looking up close at a crisis. It’s like the kids in cages thing. People who are affected by what goes on at the border - it means a lot to them. After Democrats trashed Trump over his border wall, the least they can do is go and look for themselves. Kamala really fucked get self over with this one. It’s such an easy thing to do. A great photo op. I don’t know what she was/is thinking.

She shot the open border Republican talking point down so now they have to clutch their pearls because she hasn’t done a border field trip. When she does go, they will ask what took so long and claim that she’s only doing it for a photo op. They will make a scandal out of anything.

R23 must be 1 of the posters here who thought Hillary was guaranteed to win in 2016. I am a big Kamala fan and want her to be the next president after Biden whether he serves just 1 or 2 terms. So I want her to minimize as many repub talking points as she can. As I said, handling the causes for the border problem are much more important than a photo op at the border but I think she should also go down there soon to shut down the "why isn't she going there?" talking point. If you don't think the repubs, right wing media and willing idiots in mainstream media can't make a scandal out of this, you're really delusional. The right wing operatives are experts at creating a scandal out of nothing

[quote]because she doesn’t want to be seen where the border crisis that started this year

1. The "border crisis" did not start this year. It has been ongoing for decades. Rightwing complaints verify this fact.

2.If Kamala didn't want to be seen, she wouldn't have gone to Guatemala and told them to stay there, or Mexico to meet with their political leaders and telling them to tell their own people to stay there.

3. Going to the border no more helps the situation than doing what Trump did, which was to stand in front of his failed, half-assed wall and whine. In fact, not going probably helps the situation, because then we don't have to spend all the money necessary to protect her (from rightwing zealots, mostly) and instead spend it on solving the problem.

[quote]Biden undid Trump's' remain in Mexico' policy which was actually effective and when thousands arrived daily he threw Harris under the bus to take care of it.

1. Trump's "remain in Mexico" policy was actually not at all effective — in fact, it was an unmitigated disaster — as evidenced by the deluge of refugees and record undocumented immigration throughout his "presidency".

2. Biden did not "throw Harris under the bus." He tasked her with immigration policy because that's what Presidents do: delegate to someone they trust and follow through to ensure success. Trump would not know this, or how to do this, nor does he know how to delegate and follow through.

We finally have a capable, smart and effective government that is working toward solving one of the most complex issues we face. and the political right can't stand the fact that we're making progress. It doesn't matter the issue, nor do results matter; in the rightwing bubble, the only thing that matters is hating on Democrats, and sacrificing human lives (which they claim to hold so dear) is acceptable if they get to talk smack. They sure as hell didn't care about the people dying at the border for 4 years, even when their first whore showed up revealing the truth of their policy and practice on her back.

by Anonymousreply 4206/08/2021

I just watched her press conference. She is soooo not ready for primetime. She didn't know any of the particulars the journalists were asking about, just tried to come up with platitudes to hide the fact she didn't do her homework.

Gee, I don’t know maybe if Harris was from one of the border states she might have a better idea of what is going on with the border issue.

Doesn't matter r53.

Chances are if she forms a committee and appoint members to go to the border with her the GOP would mostly likely refuse to go.

Yes, the democrats didn't give an inch when it came to crime reform (they wanted to defund police), when Trump suggested background checks, it didn't go far enough, when he talked about DACA, he was "using immigrants as pawns", when he did remain in Mexico policy, it was "racist", and on and on the list goes. The Democrats never give an inch on anything. Someone like her could never have been mainstreamed in American politics, let alone get all this ridiculously lavish press coverage. So your solution R62 is to do more of the same? Just accept half the country don't want to be governed by Democrats.

R16 is right. This is all about the long game. Biden is very popular and pretty much untouchable. Kamala isn't and her ratings are 20 percent lower than Biden's and below water. The GOP is out to weaken the national reputation of up and coming Democrat. As a biracial woman from California who's also the daughter of immigrants, Kamala is easy for the GOP to demonize as everything their base fears. Throw in her being too moderate for the Left, the GOP see a potential squeeze play if she runs for president.

This is also what's behind the recall vote being pushed on California for Gavin Newsom. That one's going to backfire though. Gavin's got that Teflon thing going.
