You've Got a Friend

"The president made clear that the United States considers Mexico a friend and that what is being considered is not militarization of the border, but support of border patrol capabilities on a temporary basis by National Guard personnel," White House spokeswoman Maria Tamburri said, describing a telephone conversation between Bush and his Mexican counterpart. (emphasis added)

When I saw this quote, I immediately thought of this song by James Taylor (suggested lyric changes in parentheses),

You just call out my name,
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah,

(And I'll be there, oh, oh, oh)
You've got a friend. (You've got an amigo)
If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name
And you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.

We've been calling Mr. President. Citizens could sure use a friend.

Free health care, free education, a free pass from cops, and a friend of the Chief Executive: how do I become an illegal alien?

I heard this morning on FOXnews the reason why oh why are we so worried about what the Mexican's think.

They were talking about what would happen if a pro-socialist anti-American got elected. I don't know that much about Mexican politics but FOx is the first elected not in the ruling party and that is good thing, but seems to me his promises are ringing more and more hollow.
They have to understand that if we don't secure our border by any means, we aren't a country.
And if the wack jobs want to take it back, we fought them once, we can do it again and the result will be the same, but I digress.

I honestly don't know if tweedle-dee will be worse than tweedle-dum, but what I do know is that as long as we are the safety valve for Mexico, it ultimately won't matter who is elected. At some point Mexico needs to be reformed, and the best way, it seems to me, is mass deportation, through attrition or otherwise.
