Michael Graham writes from Boston on Eric Holder`s lawsuit against Arizona
Arizonans seem to take the rule of law seriously. And this is a big problem for Team Obama.Holder is worried that trained and knowledgeable local cops will actually prove that the law is enforceable, blowing his bossâ€™s cover. Remember President Barack Obamaâ€™s claim last week that our borders are â€?just too vastâ€? for us to secure them through enforcement, with fences and border patrols?The borderâ€™s too big. The hole in the Gulf is too deep. The recession is too stubborn. Maybe we should find the president a smaller, easier-to-manage country to govern. You know - send him to the minors for a few years.[Bad posture on amnesty | Funny how feds lean on Ariz., not R.I., By Michael Graham, Boston Herald, July 7, 2010](via Small Dead Animals)
