Bush, thinking outside the box, decides on military solution for immigration problem
Chimpy McFlightsuit is going to go on teevee tonight and 'splain that he's going to deploy thousands of National Guard troops to the U.S./Mexican border in an effort to stop illegal immigration.
What a shock. Bush? Looking to the military to address a problem? Bush does seem like nothing so much as a kid playing with "army men". (Kin I put some of 'em over here, Uncle Dick?)
Think this is a great move, long overdue?
Or is it a stupid, short-sighted sop to try to stop his plunging popularity?
Are they going to have a guy standing every 10 ft along the entire border?
Will it have much effect on the number of illegal immigrants?
It will have no effect on those already here, so what does it accomplish as far as the immigration debate?
Does this mean that we'll now have a permanent military presense along the border? Should we build a wall along the U.S. Canadian border as well?
How about a giant space bubble that will protect the entire country? Oh yeah, Bush really really wanted that, before 9-11 came along. It was called the Star Wars missile defense plan and was a multi-billion dollar pipe dream.
So.... what do you think about deploying these National Guardsman, who, it's reported, will be sent there as part of their training.
