"No one is more qualified to deal with these kinds of crimes than my good friend Kwame," the President said in a prepared statement delivered at the White House. "And his efforts will be just as effective as my order to send 1,200 National Guardsman to the border area."
Actually I made up the part about Kilpatrick -- but not the National Guard. Sending in a few troops -- what is that, one soldier per mile? -- is as sincere a security measure as the legendary "virtual fence."
The most glaring sign that President Obama’s announcement of border funding and National Guard troops is one big, phony charade? He apparently didn’t even bother to let the governor of besieged Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, know about it...
...[the Bush White House also used] border security as a campaign ploy and performed Get Tough Theater only to flake out... The only thing worse than open-borders Obama exploiting our illegal immigration woes is open-borders Johnny-come-lately John McCain continuing to do the same.
...Until politicians with proven integrity and commitment to securing this country against invasion step into the leadership vacuum, Arizona’s DIY policy on border security is the only trustworthy one: Do It Yourself.
The one "shovel-ready" Stimulus project that 90% of Americans support -- a 25-foot high, 3-foot wide border fence made of steel-reinforced concrete -- was somehow missed in the President's comprehensive plan.
Along with the actual "security" part of border security.
