Drug War Politics: Sending U.S. troops to Mexico a "bad idea"

CBS News: "Sending U.S. troops to Mexico to help fight drug cartels is a bad idea, Republican presidential contender and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said Monday, rejecting an idea thrown out by his GOP opponent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

"Let's build a fence first," Romney said in an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader, "and let's have sufficient border patrol agents to protect it. And if the Mexican government want us to help it with logistics, intelligence, satellite images, I'm sure we can provide the sort of support we provided in Colombia.""
