0Bama's Alberto Gonzales

The contest over just which 0Bama cabinet member has found himself or herself in way, way over his or her head, has apparently been made. Before you guess wildly, figuring they pretty much all fit that description, see if you can guess whose voice this is...
"I can't talk to that. I can talk about the future. And here's the future. The future is we have borders."
Think you know now? It's the same peanut who brought you the Enemies List! Hooray!

The border for dummies

National Post editorial board

Published: Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo.

In an interview broadcast Monday on the CBC, Ms. Napolitano attempted to justify her call for stricter border security on the premise that "suspected or known terrorists" have entered the U. S. across the Canadian border, including the perpetrators of the 9/11 attack.

All the 9/11 terrorists, of course, entered the United States directly from overseas. The notion that some arrived via Canada is a myth that briefly popped up in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, and was then quickly debunked.

Informed of her error, Ms. Napolitano blustered: "I can't talk to that. I can talk about the future. And here's the future. The future is we have borders."

Just what does that mean, exactly?

Just a few weeks ago, Ms. Napolitano equated Canada's border to Mexico's, suggesting they deserved the same treatment. Mexico is engulfed in a drug war that left more than 5,000 dead last year, and which is spawning a spillover kidnapping epidemic in Arizona. So many Mexicans enter the United States illegally that a multi-billion-dollar barrier has been built from Texas to California to keep them out.

In Canada, on the other hand, the main problem is congestion resulting from cross-border trade. Not quite the same thing, is it?

0bama now wants to work with insurance companies to cut down on medical costs by getting rid of the sick and elderly with his proposed death panels. Democrat liberals now believe they have a backdoor to the death panels through private insurance companies. One strategy that is being implemented by insurance companies use the idea of "pre-existing" conditions, that in some way or form you had the condition before you got insurance, and thus you are ineligible for treatment. Another strategy is the usage of calling treatment plans "experimental", and thus covering or treating you becomes too risky. If you don't want your sick grandmother or your little cousin with leukemia to be deemed "just too risky" to save, then please pass this on.
