In a rare Sunday White House press briefing, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano spoke about emergency steps (including “passive” border protocols) being taken to address the threat of swine flu coming from Mexico. On Wednesday, President Obama plans to hold a prime-time news conference to celebrate his first 100 days in office.
More Pernicious Pork
By Asher Embry
This latest threat from Mexico,
Just couldn’t be ignored by “O.”
But don’t disturb his golfing game,
So Homeland’s problem this became.
Out strode his Sec. of DHS,
To detail how she’d solve this mess.
The chance, she thought with jubilation,
To mend her ragged reputation.
She’s hoping pig flu won’t foment,
A “Brownie”-esque embarrassment.
Napolitano made a vow:
She’ll watch our borders closer now.
Guns and drugs may still deceive her;
Just don’t exhibit signs of fever.
With thoughts of Wednesday’s coming speech,
Did these announcements overreach?
Did Rahm mean this when he said: Seize,
Don’t waste, these opportunities.
The lesson “O” must surely see.
No longer can he disagree.
It may have taken Doctors’ orders,
To finally protect our borders.

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?
