Will Obama ever defend America and her borders?
(Page 2 of 2)
In Washington, Calderon, still attacking the people of Arizona for daring to defend their border from a flood of illegal immigrants, said we should have a border that unites instead of divides. But borders divide by definition. What would a border that unites our people look like? It would look like no border at all, which is the ultimate goal.
At the state dinner Wednesday night, the White House dangled models of Monarch butterflies above the tables. As Agence France-Press noted, “The Monarch butterfly migrates from Canada, across the United States each year to Calderon’s home state of Michoacan in Mexico.”
That is, the Monarch travels completely unmolested from Canada to Mexico. It observes no borders. What a fitting symbol for the new, enlightened foreign policy Obama wishes to pursue.
But the joke is on Obama, as usual, for as Calderon bashes Arizona for kicking out illegal immigrants, his country’s immigration policies are nearly identical to those in the Arizona law. Mexico doesn’t really want open borders, it just wants its people to have open access to the United States and the abundance of jobs created here. But if Central Americans slip into Mexico for the same reasons Mexicans slip into the United States, adios!
Obama, though, is too naïve to understand that. While he is pursuing some Utopian vision of world harmony, Mexico, China, Russia and others are taking full advantage of his delusions. Obama, desperately seeking the approval of foreigners, is systematically weakening America and lowering her status as a world power. No wonder non-Americans have a more favorable opinion of us since Obama took office. Their chances of overcoming America as the world’s greatest power are greatly improving.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
