Janet Napolitano says she can't protect USA borders.

And President Barack Obama said the same.

Let's elect a new President in 2012 who WILL protect the USA's borders.

Vote out Democrats in 2010 to give a balance to our government. Right now democrats control ALL three branches of government: Pelosi, Reid, Obama, plus Obama is appointing LIFETIME judges that will reign after his presidency is over.

Get a balance of representatives, by VOTING OUT ALL DEMOCRATS. Right now, all that has happened is controlled by democrats in the House, the Senate and the White House.

It has to be ALL democrats or Pelosi keeps the numbers and retains Speakership.
