The President is not against the fence/wall. I believe he even mentioned it in his speech Monday.
According to the Vice President yesterday on Rush's show:
"It is given serious consideration, not a wall, for example, from ocean to ocean. There are a lot of places out there where it doesn't make sense. There are other places where it does. I'm told -- I'm not an expert in this by any means -- that when you get into built-up urban areas fences -- "security barriers" might be a better word for it -- are in fact an important part of the overall plan and need to be part of it. There are other areas where you've got vast spaces out there where you need other kinds of arrangements"

Is other arrangements a code word for nothing?

Is this the same country that built the Hoover Dam, the Panama Canal, that built the Empire State building in about 14 months? The one that was at nearly zero aircraft produce before WWII and was producing hundreds of thousands of aircraft within 3 years? The one that mounted the Normandy invasion? Is this the country that built the interstate highway system? That put a man on the moon in the span of one decade's effort?
Will someone please tell me what all this nonsense about "we can't build a fence/wall/whatever it takes" to keep our border secure? What the heck is going on here? I know some people disagree, but this is the same weak, "can't do" attitude that is the primary reason (besides politicians) why there aren't two beautiful, reinforced, taller and grander World Trade Center towers standing alongside that awful hole in Manhattan.
