Oh, wow. Bill's at it again. He must be.
Reality and Richardson are two things that should not be used in the same sentence.
Here's an interesting article from the way back machine (check out the date line):
That was valid then. It is even more valid, now that the highest ranking Mexican police officer has been murdered.
War has been going on in Mexico for some years now. Drug cartels, earning more money than Bush is spending are gigantic, profitable and unafraid of police. Even American police. The borders of our country are a sieve allowing Mexicans to cross them at will. Mexican drug lords have been aware of this for a long time. New Mexico, Arizona, California, Texas all have had "border incidents". I say it's border warfare. The criminals usually withdraw from American soil before our Federales are even sent to the locale.
But make no mistake about it. When the drug lords are ready, they'll make their inroads in quick, vicious attacks and then use those Americans who feel sorry for the poor illegals to protect their invasion. They are not stupid men. They're just not good baseball players.
They'll plead they are being hunted down by the Mexican police and ask for sanctuary.
Some news while I was writing this post: Juan Antonio Roman, the No. 2 policeman in the gritty border city of Ciudad Juarez, was riddled with bullets outside his home as he stepped from his pickup truck in the early hours of the morning, a police spokesman said.
A police chief from Mexico crossed the border seeking safety and asylum in America a week or two ago.
So Bill is in Mexico now, and: "New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Wednesday that he has seen an improvement in security along the U.S.-Mexico border." And: "More than 200 people have been killed so far this year in Ciudad Juarez, a city of 1.3 million across from El Paso, Texas that is home base for the Juarez cartel." A wave of organized crime and drug-related violence has shaken Mexico in recent years, killing more than 2,500 people in 2007 alone.
So Bill is down there making syrupy talk, kissing anatomy and pretending that this violence is not going on. What a man. What a governator. What a phony.
America does not need this man in any political office.

Cat, I ran into this story myself recently and thought the exact same thing.

Hi Catmoves - I've been laughing at your picture here - what is he doing?

And then I found the vegetables!

I love your cat remarks, so so true...

Catmoves said...

Hi Lin. Sorry no posts lately. Sound went out. Been fighting to get it back.
I wonder, Lin, since you and I sort of represent the middle road, why the people in power cannot see the danger facing us? Not one of the political candidates has even mentioned this warfare in our country. Strange, ain't it?

Catmoves said...

Merry Weather, I think your comments belong in a different post (A Potpourri) but I'm glad you enjoyed the post.
I wonder if that might not have been a Google screw up? We'll probably never know.

Lin said...

Ya know, Cat, I ponder that same conundrum perpetually since historically the best pro political whores wish to pander enough to garner the greatest number of votes. From where do they get their impressions? Perhaps we are not as middle of the road as we think we are? Or are we being led to believe that? I so wish I knew.

Catmoves said...

I think we are being led down a primrose path, Lin.
There is no doubt that this Administration (and several before it) have lied to the people of this once great country about a number of things. What we need is to simply go to the ballot boxes and vote against any candidate with an "inc" after his/her name. We'll lose a few good ones, but the overall effect will hopefully be salutary for us all.

I thought the Dems were thinking of your "Bill" for V.P.
Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Catmoves said...

Moose, that would definitely not be a hoot. I can think of 300 million other Americans I would prefer to have before him.
