First, Janet Napolitano is at it again. She wants to make sure the border is secured and is devoting United States military resources. Officials from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Border Patrol, were working to enforce the border.
The border is the border in Afghanistan. If we are teaching the Afghans how to seal their border, do you think we could seal our own?
The family of Brian Terry, Border Patrol Agent, who was murdered earlier this month, might want an answer to that question.
Barack Obama gave Americans a big flip off at the end of the year. He took a huge family vacation to Hawaii. Being President is a stressful job. No one argues that. But America is in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.
Instead of taking an economic vacation, Obama is spending millions so he can have his two weeks in Hawaii. Of course, the millions are not his money. It is our money. He could have cut the expenses considerably by staying on a military base. This would have given him the same beachfront venue, but would have reduced security costs considerably. No, not for Obama. He is instead staying on a private property, about five minutes away from the military base. Of course, he is going on base every day with his family, but why bother him with those pesky details, like saving tax dollars.
Most Americans would love to take a Hawaii vacation. Some of them would like any vacation. Some Americans would like to have a job so they can take a vacation. While gas prices climb through $3 a gallon and more Americans lose their jobs, Obama’s message to them is simple. It is one last obscene gesture at the American people for 2010. Expect more from him in 2011.
