Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice—
he inestimable Charles Krauthammer:
- That is why I think the view that this announcement [aka "promise"™] by the White House of half a billion and 1,200 National Guard is a serious effort, a serious way to show seriousness about this, is total nonsense. This is a PR stunt. It's Lucy and the football all over again.
Remember, it was George Bush a few years ago who all of a sudden there was this concern, the border states were up in arms over [illegal] immigration. So he sends, I think it was a couple thousand National Guard. Well, they come and they go. And the problem remains, and the traffickers remain, the drug people remain, illegal immigrants remain.
What we're going to have here, as you said from [Senator] Kyl, they probably aren't even going to be on the border, they might even be just in desk jobs. This is nothing but a stunt on the part of the [mal]administration to try to show that it's interested in sealing the border in order that we'll get a deal on comprehensive [immigration "reform"], which really is a deal for amnesty.
And it's ridiculous. [Juan] McCain [RINO-AZ] had an argument with Obama in the meeting. It was described as rather testy. Interestingly, McCain [RINO-AZ] who was on Obama's side of the argument three years ago is now, because of a challenge [from Real Conservative® & RINO-Slayer™ J.D. Hayworth] in his own state, on the other, on the correct side today, in which he said to the president [sic] "close the damn border." I think he used the word "dang" instead because he's a military man.
And the president [sic], of course, objected. The only answer here, and it is a simple answer I say it again and again, because there was no objection that makes sense — complete the fence. Don't send the Guard down. They're going to go, they're going to come back, won't make any difference. A fence remains. A fence works.
It works around San Diego, and that's why you've got all this increased [illegal] immigration in Arizona because it is funneling, channeling all those who can't enter on the San Diego side into Arizona.
I mean, this is an obvious issue. The Democrats are unbelievably stubborn on this. If you want to really, you want to use stimulus money, you don't send 1,000 Guard. You send 20,000 unemployed and you build a fence quickly. And once that's done, let's have an argument and a debate about legalization and all the other steps.
