Obama Is No Statesman
July 29, 2010 by Bob Livingston
America’s Southern border continues under attack and there is no evidence the administration of President Barack Obama even cares.
Two American ranches in Laredo, Texas were seized by the Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas on July 23, according to the Laredo Police Department. The ranch owners escaped.
Laredo police have asked for help from the Federal government to regain control of the ranches.
Incursions by drug cartels, human traffickers and Mexican paramilitary have become commonplace along the American-Mexican border. The Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge in Arizona is under the control of drug smugglers and human traffickers and has been declared off limits by the United States government.
Southwest governors have asked for help and Obama responded by sending 1,200 National Guard troops to assist U.S. Border Patrol. But that’s not nearly enough to do the job.
“National defense is one of the cardinal duties of a statesman,” said John Adams.
Clearly, Obama is no statesman.
