AUSTIN GOP Gov. Rick Perry, who continues to insist he's not interested in the presidency, is nevertheless always ready to tell the federal government how to do a better job on such matters as border security including indicating the U.S. should be open to sending military into Mexico to help fight the drug war.
Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday, Perry was asked, Would you advocate military involvement in Mexico on the Mexico side of the border to help Mexico in this drug war?
Perry answered: I think we have to use every aspect of law enforcement that we have, including the military. I think you have the same situation as you had in Colombia. Obviously, Mexico has to approve any type of assistance that we can give them.
But the fact of the matter is, these are people who are highly motivated with money. They are vicious. They are armed to the teeth. I want to see them defeated. And any means that we can to run these people off our border and to save Americans' lives we need to be engaged in.
Perry has long called for more federally paid National Guard troops on the border and has cited the state's efforts to try to fill the void caused by what he describes as the failed federal effort on border security.
Thursday's answer reflected a difference in tone, though not in substance, from one he gave in an interview this summer with the San Antonio Express-News and Houston Chronicle, when he was asked whether the U.S. should consider sending the military into Mexico as it did in 1916 after border violence.

Now that's a good point. How about just militarizing the border, then?
That’s sexual molestation of a 3 year old, plain and simple.
People don’t need to be fired over this. THEY ####### NEED TO GO TO JAIL!!!
I agree..and we do not know who these people are that are doing all this patting down others..if I was that parent I would have decked that women patting my child down..We teach our children don’t let anyone touch you in private areas and then take them to an airport and have a pervert feeling all over them..
Who is that slanted bitch?
“We would be overun with hordes of refugees.”
What? You mean more than the 20-30 million illegals already over here? We are already overrun. Where do you live that you haven’t seen them?
Rick Perry - BUILD A BIG FENCE. PUT VEHICLE SIZED DITCHES IN FRONT OF THE FENCE. PUT BARB WIRE ON TOP OF THE FENCE. PLACE ELECTRIC WIRE AT BASE OF THE FENCE.
And build a moat full of sharks with frickin' lasers attached to their heads.
You forgot CLAYMORE mines.

Grow burning nettles and poison ivy in front of the moat.
Paging Blackjack Pershing. Please pickup the courtesy phone. We have another mission south of the border. The ghost of Pancho Villa lives.
People on both sides are scared.
Warning very graphic..
this is page 4-4 heads in an ice chest
No kidding. Because once we step in that cesspool, we own it.
Black berry plants work great also.
Thats right, being that close of a neighbor, if we ever went in, even if invited, we could never give it back. Now, OTOH, if we ever did go in, if we ever did go in and clean it up, it would be the vacation spot Cuba was back in the fifties. Of course Vegas wouldn’t like that.
Instead of Ricki Ricardo and Lucy maybe we could get Jaun Vasquez and Jaunita! Man just think of all those daily Soap Operas and all those blueyed brown breasted bed thrashers. Try saying that five times quickly
I always knew we’d have to go back and finish the job James K. Polk started.
Maybe not the casinos, but the mfg of gaming machines would.
My employer would welcome the reopening of Cuba to gaming.
It must be nice when Obama can go traveling around the world while this country is under attack from all sides..Something needs to be done about this and fast..
