WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Republican firebrand Sarah Palin said Sunday President Obama doesn't have the "cojones" -- the Spanish word for testicles -- to secure the U.S. borders.
In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate whose admirers would like to see run for president in 2012 said Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has shown more fortitude than Obama with her efforts to keep illegal immigrants from crossing the nation's borders.
"Jan Brewer has the cojones that our president does not have to look out for all Americans, not just Arizonans, but all Americans, in this desire of ours to secure our borders and allow legal immigration to help build this country, as was the purpose of immigration laws," Palin said.
"If our own president will not enforce a federal law, more power to Jan Brewer and 44 other states who are in line to help support Jan Brewer in state laws, state efforts, to do what our president won't do."
Palin called the ruling by a federal judge last week stopping the enforcement of key portions of Arizona's tough new immigration law "unfortunate" and "temporary."
