So, did you like what the President did last week, when he issued the Executive Order to stop deportation of Dream Act kids? Yeah, I did too, in a big way.
But did you know that the whole thing was Domingo Garcia’s idea? Yeah, I didn’t either.
But Garcia didn’t waste any time claiming it was all his doing. It’s my guess that anybody who has the President’s ear on such matters wouldn’t be the sort to immediately take credit for stuff, if that person wants the President’s ear ever again.
Forgive me if I’m a bit skeptical that the President of the United States wasn’t really quite sure what to do about a serious national issue until he got a call about it from a former state representative in Texas. I’m sure it’s just coincidence that this former state representative also happens to be running for U.S. Congress at the moment, and is currently behind the 8-ball looking for extra votes in a Democratic run-off election. No, that couldn’t have had anything to do with him taking credit for Obama’s fine work.
But if so, why stop there? I think Mr. Garcia is thinking too small.
I think Garcia should issue a press release reminding voters that he was the one who urged President Reagan to tell Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall.
I thought it was particularly clever of Garcia to slip Jonas Salk the cure for polio. It’s a travesty of justice that he didn’t get the proper credit for it.
And thank goodness Garcia had the wisdom to give all those tips to SEAL Team 6, or Osama bin Laden would probably still be alive today.
And how about when Garcia whispered in John Kennedy’s ear that Americans should be first on the moon? How in the world did Kennedy apologists get away with crediting Kennedy with that stroke of genius?
Personally, I’ll be glad when this Congressional race is over. Maybe then Garcia will have the time to let us all in on the secret of why Stonehenge was built, where they hid Jimmy Hoffa’s body, and what’s up with that scary Mayan calendar thing. Plus, he’s still got that whole “curing cancer” thing ahead of him.
