    That'll be an interesting outcome. It sounds like a temporary solution to a permanent problem. (kinda the opposite of commiting suicide)

    I've heard that they will have NO POWERS. If that is true, then the rest is just for show. Hope I'm wrong. -------

    They are not being used as LE...They are mainly Engineers to build new patrol roads, intelligence specialists, etc etc...He made it perfectly clear that the NG will in no take the place of BP or LE.

    Hmm. All show and no go. Sounds like Dubya is turning into a Democrat.

    While a step in the right direction, I feel the U.S. needs to take drastic measures to keep illegals out. This includes terrorists and drug runners.

    Anything is better than nothing of course but it is darned hard to do much of a cure when the horse left the stable so long ago - and left the door wide open all this time.

    We will see what develops - and I wonder what will be the response from Fox - other than what may have been discussed behind closed doors.

    By lamenting the fact that the NG will be powerless they are in fact offering a better idea by saying we should be letting them (the NG) fix the problem. By not doing that, he's showing that's it all political bluster to pretend to do something. What a surprise though, only president with lower approval ratings was Nixon during watergate. I'll give respect to the CiC when it's earned, not just because he's got the title, but isn't doing his job.

    It started out pretty good and then it turned into a dance. This is the way I interpreted the speech.

    I am sorry but the plan is a 50 year old junkie hooker with a couple of coats of make-up and a new dress trying to pass as a 16 year old virgin.

    It's unfortunate that The President Of The United States cannot win for nothing no matter what he does these days.

    He gets blasted daily and cannot even BREATHE without one side or the other blasting him for just doing that.

    You guys make it sound like it's totally impossible to secure the borders. I don't agree. You want me to come up with a better idea to fix the problem or do you want me to say what I haven't herd anyone else say yet. I'll do both.

    Anyone ever been to Gitmo ? If not it's kinda hard to explain except to say that NOBODY comes across that border,well,.......at least alive. I've herd tell that a few pieces come floating down on the base (American)side every now and then. Put the armed forces(if we have any left that isn't babysitting Iraq,and Afganistan) on the(our) borders with standing orders that "what you see out in front of you is a "free fire zone". If it moves shoot it. (or blow it up)

    How long has the average(intellegent) person known that our borders wern't secure? How many presidents ago was that? Same as "the US is dependent on foreign oil". How many of us actually did not know that? How many of us did not know that 30 years ago?

    Our lawmakers have chose to ignor these problems for how long? The Bushes,Clinton,Regan,Carter,and how many before them chose to ignor these problems until now?

    Our President has kissed,hugged,and held hands with(IMO) our enemies. Saudi Arabia and Mexico included. This on national T.V. It absolutely made me sick.

    But he is the President. Also,I am an American. That's why I have the right to be in total disgust of this whole situation. That's why I have the right to speak up.

    Our border problem CAN be fixed. Our dependence on foreign oil can be fixed. Hell,all we gotta want to do is fix the problem. Up until now we haven't wanted to.

    Why do we have to get approval from the rest of the world before we can protect ourselves ?? Why would it have to be ok with Mexico before we can protect our border with them?? Let's just do it. -------

    We protect S. Korea's border better than ours. I say take all the troops based in S. Korea and stick 'em on OUR border. It's time to take care of our own back yard and it's time for other countries to cowboy up and take care of theirs.
    Press the fight!
