Let Shark Week ensue.
President Obama has yet to visit the site of the humanitarian crisis we are all allegedly seeing through a distorted and divisive politician lens, the mainstream media with a liberal bent. Or, as we like to call it, reality.
Where Jon Stewart is asking Hillary Clinton the tough questions, getting the good answers and all of a sudden The Plum Line at The Washington Post (and no matter how much we love us some mustachioed Gene Robinson, they are still the right-tilted paper of record for the Beltway Bubble) calls out Fvx Nation and Governor Good Hair Perry and the frenzied-up masses.
There's less of an appetite for harsh No Amnesty rhetoric that you thought, eh GOP power rain-makers? Interesting.
From The Washington Post.
But in an interview today, the head of the National Guard under George W. Bush said he had not yet heard a clear rationale for sending in the Guard and suggested it might not be the appropriate response to the problems at the core of the current crisis, though he did say he could envision the Guard playing some sort of part in a broader solution.
So no need to send in the militias? Do proceed. You, H. Steven Blum, are actually someone qualified to speak about Katrina and that hardly ever happens.
“Until mission requirements are clearly defined, it can’t be determined whether this is an appropriate use of the Guard in this particular case,” H. Steven Blum, who was the Chief of the National Guard Bureau from 2003 to 2009 and has been a career military man for decades, told me. “There may be many other organizations that might more appropriately be called upon. If you’re talking about search and rescue, maintaining the rule of law or restoring conditions back to normal after a natural disaster or a catastrophe, the Guard is superbly suited to that. I’m not so sure that what we’re dealing with in scope and causation right now would make it the ideal choice.”
Shut Up! No need to set our hair on fire and find rural causes and "bus lookout" posse meet-n'-greet-ups somewhere near a border to bring loaded guns and Tea Party wackadoo to this week? Hannity is going to be so dreadfully deflated.
And he pouts.
Last night he was primed and ready to incite. And he had Rudy
Noun, Verb, 9-11 Guiliani riding shotgun.
Seriously? "An insecure border leads to terrorism?" Oh, Rudy. A New Yorker should just have more common sense than you display.
