Still not content, the administration has instituted a no-tasering policy as well.
Do you know how many actual cases the administration studied to come up with these new policies of proactive cowardice? According to the USA Today--roughly 25.
Lastly--in an attempt to look as completely feckless as possible--the administration made sure it sent out press releases, made public statements, and patted itself on the back in the press about the new "direction" of border security.
For the last decade or more residents in southern New Mexico, Arizona, and to a lesser degree California and Texas have been inundated with border violence that has raped their children, stolen their families’ land, life, and work, and more or less created some zones of complete lawless anarchy.
Crowing about how the Border Patrol will be diving for cover when a 1972 Chevy Silverado comes barricading through a border crossing will increase or lessen the fears our fellow American citizens already live with in that region?
I know that it is more important to this president that he make America look as weak as they possibly can be in the eyes of the watching world. But this kind of public pronouncement of a policy that weakens border security--taking tools, opportunity, and rationale out of the equation--is inviting invasion by those who would wish us harm and more often than not figure out a way to follow through on it.
I know that staying up all night and helping our boys run to the fight and save the life of an ambassador who was caught under fire in Libya would've prevented him having his beauty rest for his Vegas fundraiser the next day.
I know that making a three minute phone call to the Mexican authorities to get our Marine out of the grubby mitts of the Tijuana posse was too much for his already packed golf schedule.
Now I know that if El General, El Profe, or El Gori II decide to turn lower Arizona into their version of Afghani training camps, the administration will see to it that they're comfy!
