Oh Canada! Understanding Janet Napolitano – An Agent of Change – Apologies from Massachusetts

Canadian’s are a bit perplexed over comments made by Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano and the Canadian’s role in the 9/11 terrorists attacks. In newspapers across Canada the horror and confusion regarding the appointment of Ms. Napolitano is hitting headlines, and American’s are posting to sites apologizing for the administration’s choice of a less than qualified individual to head one of the country’s vital bureaucracies.

From the National Post: “The border for dummies”, the Post covers the basics of Ms. Napolitano’s ignorance regarding where terrorists entered the United States before 9-11, and goes on to question what exactly she meant when backtracking after being told she made a blunder and came out with this gem:
“Informed of her error, Ms. Napolitano blustered: "I can't talk to that. I can talk about the future. And here's the future. The future is we have borders."

One has to be proud, as an American, that Ms. Napolitano understands that there even are borders, considering that the manner in which this administration is handling everything from the economy to foreign policy is questionable to say the least.
However, her continued stunning ignorance is eroding what is left of any respect someone who is living in still living in a commune in either San Francisco or Chicago might hold for the poor woman.

From the CBC:
“Canada more lax than U.S. about whom it lets in, Napolitano says” – enough said.

US-Candian Border -

Anyone with the intelligence of a prune understands that there is a vast difference between Canada’s immigration policy and that of the United States, specifically when it comes to whom it lets in and whom it does not: For example from the Hills of Vermont to the rugged North Dakota Mountains, hoards of Canadian’s are not risking life and limb to break into the United States – there are no Canadian drug gangs shooting up the towns along the border – Canada is not Mexico, and border security, getting and out of Canada at least – is tight.

Every so often, a trip into the beautiful province of Quebec is called for, and an easy ride through the Green Mountain State of Vermont, when one reaches the border, the wait to cross is not overly long, the questions, thorough, and the border guards welcoming, proud of their country. Leaving Canada, one is subjected to a more thorough investigation to include a trunk search (in the event of any non-duty free shopping). What one notices most however, is that almost all of the vehicles entering or exiting the United States, contain American’s – with passports (and prior to the need to have a passport: two forms of identification.)

The problem: Ms. Napolitano has most likely never crossed the Canadian border (and in future, that might not be an option, given the opinion Canadian’s now hold of said Secretary of Homeland Security), and therefore, has no idea of what it is like, so she assumed it was just like Mexico, a border with which she is acquainted. Ms. Napolitano arrived in Washington via Arizona, where she held the Governor’s office (cheering Arizonans could be heard as far away as Utah), where Mexican’s, and all individuals from all types of country’s (except Canada) enter freely.
As Governor, Ms. Napolitano “hoped” that the violence caused by the drugs, smuggling and such, was “an anomaly”. The article, from the New York Times, concluded:

“There is an ongoing relationship that happens even in the midst of an immigration meltdown,” Ms. Napolitano said. “I think it’s reflective of the fact borders don’t need to be — how do I say this? — that there are challenges but also opportunities.”

The word Ms. Napolitano was at a lack for in reference to Mexico was “open” – a word she would have been wise to apply to our neighbor to the north, where American’s benefit from the legal trade between two nations.

By way of explanation to our Canadian friends, Ms. Napolitano’s experience has been confined to a previously under populated State on the U.S. Mexican border, she arrived at her current position in the capacity of “crony”, meaning that she was given the post due to an established relationship with either Obama and or the DNC (most likely for championing Open Borders, otherwise known as one of the DNC’s “Get out the Vote” drives.).

Take heart, Canada, only 34% of American’s, according to Rasmussen polls, now “strongly approve” of the President’s job performance and 3 years will go by like a blink of an eye – rest assured, as American’s did when they found Carter to be a complete boob, a sensible Citizen of the United States will, once again, be called upon to repair the damage done under yet another clueless administration. Therefore, when a United States Citizen is in your country visiting, please take a moment and give them your sympathy. We will spend the next 3 years constantly worried about our own safety, while battling a severe recession, being taxed to the limit, and apologizing for the constant blunders of our government.

All who were left scratching their heads when Obama chose this obedient toady to head Homeland Security now can get a handle on it: a serious selection, focused upon real terrorist threats (not imaginary, partisan ones i.e. TEA parties)- like, say, a Rudolph Giuliani, wouldn’t have been a willing collaborator in a sham report trashing US vets... and for political purposes.

Napolitano’s qualification for this job was simply being a liberal Obama sycophant… certainly not any skills, insight, or ability.

Her recent statements on Canadian border security illustrate how incompetent and puzzled she is- Neopolitano completely lacks the credentials to be in-charge of protecting our country from the likes of Al Qaida.

Trouble is, narcissist Obama needs to be surrounded by mindless drones to confirm his omnipotence and pollyanna world view. But such appointments as Napolitano and Panetta to vital national security posts are a show of weakness that will surely encourage terrorists and myriad other rogue characters who see America as their enemy- no matter how hard Barack tries to schmooze them.

Anyone who expected this president to place the nation’s practical defense interests above those of his own political security and radical agenda hasn’t really looked at how he got this far in the first place.

Does anyone remember the surgeon general under Clinton? Don't remember her name but she was a real winner too, wanted to teach masturbation in schools. Americans are maintaining an ongoing tradition here.

Take care, Elli
