Is Obama nuts? Sending 1200 troops to the US/Mexican border is going to be about as effective as sucking oil out of the gulf with a giant straw. Who is advising the President?
If Obama will allow these troops to operate without rules of engagement and allows them unlimited airstrikes and artillery barrages, and switches from guardsmen to Marines, maybe 1200 would be enough to do something. Sending 1200 guardsmen and 500 million dollars to the border is just appeasement. Now he and his EVIL minions will be able to say "We did something!" What a joke. He has just wasted another half billion dollars of our money without any benefit. This guy has to go. We cannot survive another three years of this spending. And he is still claiming its not his fault.
