During President Obama’s visit to the Sooner State, he was given an Oklahoma City Thunder T-shirt by Gov. Mary Fallin, who briefly met with him on the tarmac at Tinker Air Force Base.

She waited until a little later (via press release) to give him a piece of her mind.

“I was deeply disappointed that during his visit, the president did not address the ongoing illegal immigration crisis or the failure of our federal justice system to stop or even contain it,” said whoever writes things for Fallin to say.

Yes, it was a shame that during his two-day visit to Oklahoma (which does not border a foreign country), the president did not solve the illegal immigration issue that has been vexing some in the United States for decades.

Funnily enough, we took a quick look at Fallin’s record in the U.S. House of Representatives, where she served the Fifth District from 2007 to 2010.

Did you know she didn’t sponsor any bills to address the illegal immigration crisis? How weird!

In three years, she didn’t have time to get to those pesky aliens, but she did have a chance to push for House Resolution 60: Recognizing and commending University of Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford for winning the 2008 Heisman Trophy and for his academic and athletic accomplishments.

Did Obama even spend any time in Oklahoma recognizing Sam Bradford? For shame, Mr. President. For shame.
