Media Watch: Editor’s Note: An Apology To Our Readers
You really can’t make this garbage up:
“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum [Friday]. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.
You mean like Fast and Furious, Mr. President? Obama really has a ton of nerve to talk about how he’s in favor of “sensible gun reforms” that he insinuates would cut down on gun violence both here and Mexico when it’s under his administration that Fast and Furious started, which has seen an estimated 300+ Mexican deaths tied directly to US weapons “legally” walked across the border to Mexico .
Scott Johnson at Power Line notes how the speech was full of praise for Mexico and finger wagging at his own country in his typically apologetic way. Don’t be too shocked – the guy has been apologizing for America (and on foreign soil at that) since he took office in 2009, and self-loathing liberals all over the world have both embraced it and applauded it. Why would he stop now? After all, a strong belief in American exceptionalism has not exactly been his – nor their – strong suits. Doesn’t make what he said any less infuriating, but it does make it more understandable.
Moving right along …
