Napolitano Talks Tough on Border
GLENN: Are we going to start where?
PAT: I thought we would start with Janet Napolitano first talking about the border policy, the current policy as opposed to the prior policy.
GLENN: Okay, here it is.
NAPOLITANO: I can tell you that this administration has pursued a broad new enforcement and security strategy.
GLENN: Stop for a second.
GLENN: I just don't think — what is it that Drudge calls her, big sis, should be saying the word broad. She does sound a little tough. "We've got a broad strategy here." I need a pack of Kool cigarettes and some Alka Seltzer because we've got a broad, broad strategy and I'm just the broad to bring it to you. I'm sorry. Go ahead?
NAPOLITANO: Urgency and care that anything I have seen since I began my career in public service. And the strategy is showing real progress.
NAPOLITANO: Let me point to a few reasons why. First, we have dispensed with the rhetoric and we've just gotten to work. Now, for too long we heard bumper sticker slogans about being tough.
NAPOLITANO: But looking tough just doesn't get the job done.
PAT: No, it doesn't.
NAPOLITANO: We decided that we needed to add some smarts and to make some changes to build a coordinated comprehensive strategy.
GLENN: What is it? Give it to me.
PAT: What is her strategy?
GLENN: We're adding some smarts. That's what we're adding.
GLENN: We added some smarts to this. We're throwing little brains and people out of dogs. We've taken a bunch of dogs that have been covered with oil. We're cutting the brains out of them and we're throwing them at the border. That's what we're doing. We've added some smarts and some brains.
PAT: And some Camel filters over there.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. Nothing like a Camel, when you take a Camel and put it in your mouth and then you have to do this (spitting). I love that.
GLENN: I love that. I got a little bit of tabaccy on my tongue there.
GLENN: All right.
PAT: Let's get back to the smarts.
GLENN: What smarts have they added?
PAT: I don't know, I don't know.
GLENN: Predator drones — do you know, did you see the story last week? We never even had a chance to talk about it. Did you see the story last week that they are now talking about flying predator drones over our cities.
PAT: Yeah, oh, yeah.
GLENN: Do you remember when Bush was talking about running it over our border when we were having people that were coming in, in the Canadian border and they were talking about possibly running some predator drones over the Canadian border?
PAT: The left had a conniption.
GLENN: A conniption? They were using their smarts! Now we're talking about running predator drones over our cities.
