    Gov. Goodglasses stands a snowball’s chance in Austin of making it to the White House.

    If by looking out you mean denying them basic medical care access, driving the education system to the bottom of the ratings and developing an economy that only benefits the wealthiest one percent, then yeah he’s watching out for them.

    Where, exactly, is the border in this ‘toon? If anything, I am reminded of the photo of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima. So, Gov. Perry is simply supported by the Texas Nat’l Guard, even as our Flag was supported by the WWII soldiers.

    Using tax payer dollars to send a thousand National Guard troops to the border to stand around and get in the way does seem rather dimwitted. The only thing worse is the Congressional Republicans who want to immediately deport everyone but end up standing around collecting their tax payer funded paycheck. I guess they don’t have a vote to rescind the ACA or an investigation to grandstand with this week.

    It’s referring to Perry’s announced intent to send a thousand National Guard troops to the border — where they are not actually going to help anything (they’re not supposed to. They’re not trained or experienced in the required work). It’s purely a political gesture and a huge waste of taxpayer’s money – on the order of $6000 EXTRA per illegal caught.

    DaSharkie: Yes, the prospect of Clinton or Biden is scary (although not as scary as the Republicans). Elizabeth Warren? Also scary – to the ruling elites.

    This is a pretty good metaphor:

    A platoon of troops are carrying out their mission.

    Their mission is to erect the 2016 presidential campaign of Mr. Perry, which will then flap in the breeze.

    Nicely done, Mr. Anderson.

    “You’re right. No Republican has a chance in 2016.”
    .
    True. With Obama’s food stamp recruitment drive robbing Peter to pay Paul will never be more profitable. Sometimes Peter doesn’t know what’s going on, but Paul does and will always vote to get what is taken from someone else.

    Perry makes Dubya look smart.

    @Ted Lind

    The only reason he is doing this is because we have a president that refuses to uphold his oath of office and enforce the laws passed by Congress. Should be grounds for impeachment, if the Republicans would grow a spine.

    @Joadtom

    A “force multiplier” to do what, exactly? The Guard can’t arrest anyone; are they supposed to stand there and look menacing?
