Reagan: "Tear Down This Wall" - Bush: "Build That Fence"
So the President who completely ignored a terrorist threat memo that turned out to be precisely correct, and his administration that can't respond to a natural disaster with more than a weeks detailed notice, that can't seem to rebuild the damaged levees, who's war plan can't effectively train Iraqi security forces or articulate any sort of exit strategy, who's Medicare drug bill is a complete disaster and who's caught in so many high level scandals and criminal proceedings that no one can actually remember them all - are now pushing legislation to "temporarily" militarize our southern border and build a gigantic 300 mile - 900 million dollar fence.
And we are supposed think that this will solve the problem.
Forgive me if I'm a little skeptical.
Once again props to Senator Feingold for voting against this lame legislation. He was one of only sixteen.
