“Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Sunday said that building a 700-mile wall along the Mexican border to deter illegal immigration would amount to “going back to the Stone Ages,” and instead urged the use of high-tech gear and more patrols to secure the nation’s southern boundary. “We are landing men on the moon and in outer space using all these great things. I think that other technology really can secure the borders.” Ummmmm, hasn’t Immigrant Arnie ever watched ANY of his movies?
Don’t Understand OIL? Hell, we don’t understand how someone could get $400 million dollars for retiring because of profits while WE are scraping the change out of the seat cushions to pay for gas! Bush’s measures are largely symbolic–they won’t do a helluva lot to help the consumer…
Just to explain it, you’ve all seen the Magic Eightball, haven’t you? I’m sure Bush thinks more of himself as a super hero like the Daily Show did, but I think he is more the supervillain type I was looking for the references to this when I came across an interesting discussion on Firedoglake…The ‘Decider’ By Taylor Marsh
Close to the bottom of the comment, GrahamG reminds us TO DECIDE OR NOT TO DECIDE…THAT IS THE DECISION
Snips from a transcript of Bob Schieffer’s pre-State of the Union interview with President Bush.
SCHIEFFER: …can you give the American people, Mr. President, some sort of a time frame, for example, where do you think we’re going to be three months from now there, and what will troop levels be, say, come the fall?
PRESIDENT BUSH: You see, I–I can understand you wanting to ask that question and the American people, some wanting to–want me to give the answer to that. I can’t give the answer to that because I’m not the–the decider. What I can assure the American people of is that we’ve got a strategy to victory. We got a plan to see that the Iraqis take the fight. More and more Iraqis are taking the fight, and I’m going to listen to our commanders. [Emphasis Mine}
