Can You Stomach It?

Karl Rove appeared on The O'Reilly Factor to defend the Bush Administration's blowful performance on Border Security. The best spin Rove can manage is "We sucked at it somewhat less than other administrations."

Rove: You got to try — we had — hey, look, Bill, you've got to try everything. And we put up the fence. We put up sensors that did work. We put up watch tours that worked, but we tried everything. And you can't start something as important as this and throw as much money as we did and expect to have everything work perfectly.

"We tried." Yeah, right. You ignored the problem for five years, and only stepped up enforcement when you were trying to pass your Amnesty Bill. And even then, you tried to calibrate the minimum amount of enforcement that would buy off the public on Amnesty.

In related news, Mexican students from Live Oak High School — the school that sent four students home for wearing patriotic T-shirts on Mexican Beerfest Day — today held their own protest.

About 200 Hispanic teens are marching in Morgan Hill yelling "We want respect!" and "Si se puede!" in reaction to a controversy ignited when the Live Oak High School principal effectively sent four students home for wearing T-shirts with American flags on them during Cinco de Mayo.
Mexican-American students felt the students were being disrespectful on the only day they celebrate their heritage while students sporting red, white and blue said it violated their First Amendment rights.

Begging the question, if Mexico's so freakin' wonderful, why do y'all demand the right to live in the United States!

How long before Sharpton shows up for this one?
