Mr. Bush On The Border

While speaking to the Border Patrol on 6 June 2006 Mr Bush said this:

But it takes the time, and yet, we don't have time to get this border enforced. And so, therefore, I decided to work with our state governors, Republicans and Democrats, to move 6,000 National Guard troops on the border to help the current Border Patrol do the job until the new agents are trained. That makes sense to me, doesn't it? If we've got a problem, let's address it square on. And if part of the problem is we're waiting to get new Border Patrol agents trained and we can't wait, let's move some troops in -- National Guard troops that will be able to help those of you on the front lines of securing our border do your job better.

*Emphasis added

Here is the full transcript.

"That makes sense to me, doesn't it?"

Is he asking the audience if it makes sense to him? Most likely he isn’t, but it gave me a good laugh.
