Are our borders the weakest link?

I believe our unprotected borders are our weakest link in the struggle to protect ourselves from another terror attack on our soil. I was wondering, if we have another attack on our soil and the persons who commit the attack came across our borders illegally, will the Democratic party who support keeping them wide open take responsibility? Will they immediately slam on Bush for not doing more when they are the main advocates for keeping them wide open? I have heard several Republicans who believe we should protect our borders from illegal entry. (That is my position also) I don't think the Democrats are on board with all that protecting our borders effectivley would entail.

This is one of those can't win situations for President Bush, either close down the borders and be labeled a racist or leave them open and risk an attack and then be blamed for not doing enough.


If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”
Robert A. Heinlein

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

i know this is the wrong way to think.. but i think foreigners entering this country should have to go through hell to get out of an airport.. or through a border.

At least a machine gun or two pointed at them at all times, til they are cleared for entry.
