    Obama's just confusing Border Security with DHS Napolitano's TSA boobs. I had to brave the gator moat to catch a United flight out of Chicago just last week.

    The right has only itself to blame for border security ridicule.

    illegals in this country sucking off the entitlement tit is costing all the hard working people that pay taxes. What wrong with not wanting the illegals here?
    Nothing
    It the shit stains way of acting like a juvenile instead of just dealing with the issue ... after all it is campaign time STILL

    You're probably right. Many Dems would also.

    What was the point of his address?

    Was he trying to to be post partisan? Was he trying to mend disagreements between racial factions? Was he trying to be the arbiter of good feelings and build bridges between the various components of this society?

    Was he trying to drive a wedge into an already sensitive issue? Was he trying to divide the population? Was he trying to create yet another us/them pardigm to foster and grow hate?

    If his policies were working, his perpetual campaign to get re-elected would not be needed. It also would not be so annoying.

    That's not too far off the mark considering that I've heard some conservatives say that they don't even like water stations being left in the desert which are only meant to keep people from possibly dying of thirst/dehydration (a HORRIBLE way to die, by the way) because they think it encourages people to make the attempt to cross the border.

    Additionally, pushing for the expulsion of all current illegal resident aliens before any kind of path to citizenship is considered is another extreme (not to mention both impractical and unworkable) proposed solution.

    At some point, the GOP better figure out that demographics are working against them being primarily a political party of WASPs.
