this was one of the biggest breaking news stories from inside the beltway to go down yesterday, thanks for posting it
good for ap
this is the stuff of politics, it's how bigtime stakes are won and lost
my question: instead of getting "angry" with senator mccain why didn't obama just reachout, be bipartisan, fulfill his stated purpose for appearing at the gop luncheon, by telling the maverick that yes, indeed, he was gonna put 1200 natl guard on the border?
why didn't the president just tell senators kyl and mccain to their faces what they wanted to hear, instead of getting "testy" with em?
an hour later, he ended up sending the guard anyway

unless this bid to beef up the border turns out to be another one of the doof's declarations for a day, like the spending freeze, the bank tax, the debt commission, the offshore drilling...
obama makes up and changes his mind like a little girl
