President Barack Obama is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't when it comes to whether he should visit the U.S.-Mexico border, where legions of children are illegally  crossing over, says Rick Ungar, co-host of "Steele & Ungar" on SiriusXM.

"It's kind of a no-win situation," Ungar told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"If he flies over, you know, what that gets him — it's the George Bush Katrina moment. If he goes there on the ground, he gets criticized for making a mess when everybody comes in with the presidential detail.

"And if he goes and takes a photo-op, everybody's going to argue, 'well, he just showed up for a photo-op and then he left,'" Ungar said Tuesday.

Ungar's remarks came during a panel discussion with Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute.

She says Obama — who will be in Texas for Democratic fundraising events — is wrong not to see the border problem close-up.

"The fact that he's going down there to raise money at the home of a liberal Democratic filmmaker at the same time we have a crisis shows that this president is weak,'' she said.

Ungar does not think Obama has to go onsite in order to know the extent of the problem of illegal immigrants flooding into the United States.

"In real life, the president knows what's going on there. It's not like he's going to go there and make some discovery," Ungar said.

"He's going to see a lot of children miserable, unhappy. They've had a horrible journey and he's not really going to glean anything."
