    I came across this article at Politico.com and found it laughable. The idea that anyone elected president in a post 9/11 America would neglect the issue of terrorism is ludicrous. As a registered Republican, I can only say that this might very well a new low in fear politics. Giuliani never had my vote, but if he had, he would have lost it with these statements.


    Please Fred Thompson, rescue us.

    Not to mention the fact that, in my opinion, we will be hit again regardless of which party occupies the White House. Especially if we don't start taking serious measures at our borders and our ports.

    With our borders being as porous as they are (both north and south), the lack of personel patroling the borders, the number of people who continue to pour across with impunity, couple with the lax inspections at our ports, it a damn miracle we haven't been hit again already.

    If anyone has dropped the ball at home, it is the current administration. They have failed to properly secure this nation and its borders.

    Yeah you've nailed that one. But was it just this administrations lack of ability or power that has prevented our borders to be more secure? If the answer is wait 'til we get hit again then we are all screwed big time!

    I think it is a combination of the squabling between parties and the Bush administration's ability to squander it's political capitol like a twelve year old with $5.00 in a candy store. The time to fix the issues with our borders and the shipping ports was September 12, 2001. Bush could have had anything he wanted on that day. Anything. He stopped short in my opinion.

    And Congress followed suit, if Bush didn't ask for the border issue to be addressed, they should have. Instead, we have 80 year old Swedish grandmothers being strip searched at airports.

    Yeah but the minutemen brought the ideas up on real border security. The one issue that torques me about the Bush Family is NAFTA, who got rich on that deal.....? Human trafficking, unsafe motor vehicles and inability to search cargo coming across both borders.

    But yes having the new/old TSA folk at work it should be taken serious that security is no joke. I was a customs agent for my squadron while in the Navy and the things people smuggle into our country would blow your mind. You've heard of racial profiling right? Well itis kind of the same thing with customs. And most usually it is correct on the profile. I mean our guys would laden the cargo ares with rum from Puerto Rico and we'd looked the other way, it wasn'tt going to become black market it was going to be drunk.
    But when you mention security in our country it is a very hard deal to do. All parties should have to be required to live in the field for about a week and have to make arrests and detain illegals and I bet with in 90 day we'd have a very effective border plan set for vote and would be passed quickly.
    But hey I'm just a unknown in this world here.

    of course you are deluded. Having America in Iraq is what makes AQ's life so much better. We are NOT actively trying to destroy their organization. We are wasting men money and material in a civil war in Iraq which only serves to make us more hated by the islamic world which plays directly into AQ's hands. OBL attacked us on 9/11 in hopes that he could taunt us into invading an oil rich arab country - which is exactly what he predicted we would do.... we invaded Afghanistan instead and damn near had him at Tora Bora....but Bush decided to outsource the job to the warlords who went into Tora Bora...and then came out again all sorry and empty handed - "oops, we just missed him" - empty, except for the bribes that OBL paid them to let his escape, of course..... and THEN, Bush did exactly what OBL hoped he would do...he invaded that oil rich arab country and occupied it with a christian army: an AQ recruiter's dream come true..and every day we stay there, we further radicalize the arab street and make the arab and islamic world hate us even more.

    Now...see if you can actually answer the above paragraph with more than a two sentence soundbite or a ten page cut and paste oped piece for a change.

    Bush does nothing, liberals called him ineffective.

    Bush secretly wiretapped suspected Al Qaeda or terrorists, liberals and the ACLU cried foul.

    Damn that George Bush.

    and RSR has shown once again that such an intelligent interchange with him is, of course, impossible.
