What is frustrating is that it takes a long time to make such improvements, and yet just a short time to ruin it all.

I'm not defending Obama, but GW Bush's post 9/11 border policies were abysmal.

But considering what has been going on as of late, we pretty much have lost our borders.

At least he tried to build a fence, deployed Nat. Guard troops (maybe for show), and hired more BP agents.

“W never really worked to control the border.”

He was the first illegal alien President. Some of Dubya’s greatest hits:

“Family Values Don’t Stop at the Rio Grande”

“Jobs Americans Won’t Do”

“Comprehensive Immigration Reform”

9/11 did certainly drive the bureaucracy of the time to take effective steps.

All of the good that has been done since 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly


Thats pretty much the working definition of the entire Obama Administration.

You can also add that the systems put in place to protect Americans from terrorism are now being abused and used as a weapon against normal every day Americans and in many cases are being used to enable and protect terrorists hostile to the US.

As one high level government officials has stated, the Taliban is inside the building

Why should that surprise anybody?

After all, all the good that was done in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the War On Terror since 9/11 has been reversed single-handedly as well!

Again, I ask,... why should that surprise anybody?

Non-public Efforts were made to ameliorate AQ's reach across the world in the months after 9/11.

Today, those peeps have been long cashiered.

So was Reagan’s policy - he granted amnesty.
But I still like Reagan.

Include Libya and Egypt. Decades of work to improve relations and establish influence there was flushed down the drain overnight by 0bama.

Reagan was easily manipulated by Howard Baker, Bob Dole, and the first Bush, it seems.
