One can only hope Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry drove one of the final nails into the coffin containing his presidential aspirations by suggesting that a U.S. troop presence is desirable in Mexico.
Certainly it's easy to imagine most Mexicans hoping so, as Perry also managed to say, "I think it is very important for us to work with them to keep that country from failing."
Gov. Perry clearly hasn't yet been briefed on the national economic situation.
