Is Mexico Scared?
President Bush announced he was sending 6,000 National Guard troops to the border in order to help his sagging poll numbers. Well, he did not say all of that. If I were a guardsman, I guess I agree that it beats a tour in Iraq, and according the Washington Post article, around one third of the nation's guard members could participate in this program over the next two years. During this time, the Federal government will hire 6,000 more border patrol agents, which will have doubled the agency size during his Presidency. It is laughable that some conservatives still identify with the Bush Administration. His Presidenctial policies has created a dangerous scenario--runaway government spending while cutting tax revenues. I am no fiscal conservative, but I would prefer true conservative economic policy to this.
