The article in Canada's The National Post was not complimentary to Ms Napolitiano: The border for dummies
Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo.
Janet was, until recently, the Governor of Arizona. My guess is that nobody cares what the governor of Arizona thinks. But when she reaches the national stage it appears she has reached the level of incompetence that even the people who would like to side with her notice.
One of her initiatives was (no kidding - its cited approvingly in her profile) to
...limit construction-related pollution on state land and bar the use on state property of leaf blowers and gas-powered mowers.
I will not mention that Ms. Napolitano, 52, has never been married and loves movies, ... especially July Garland movies (I made the last part up). I will not stoop to that kind of scurrilous innuendo. I leave that to the Left.
Having blundered into the thicket of insulting our neighbor, largest trading partner and guardian of our Northern border, Janet "clarified" her remarks:
The U.S. Homeland Security chief has clarified earlier remarks that suggested the 9-11 terrorists entered the U.S. through Canada.
The country's in the very best of hands.
