In Mexico speech, Obama blames US for Mexican gun violence

Posted by: ST on May 5, 2013 at 4:41 pm

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 …

    Much of what Obhammud says has thinly-veiled insults to the intelligence of his listeners. The Mexicans know full well that Fast & Furious weapons will be showing up at crime scenes on both sides of the border for the next decade, if not longer.

    Other catch phrases are “sensible” or “common sense”, the meaning, of course, being if you do not agree with him you are nuts. His flatulent orations have come full circle to the point they no longer deliver anything of merit but are only reflective of his idiotic and reckless thought patterns, i.e. imaginary “red lines” in Syria.

    The child who begs mercy from the court because he is an orphan (after being convicted of killing his parents) deserves more mercy from the court of public opinion than does Obhammed. At least the orphan was responsible for only two deaths, while Obhammed is responsible for hundreds (if not thousands).

    And the count will only go higher for years to come. But in his mind it doesn’t count because (so far) only one verifiable death is American (just a border agent, who probably deserved to die anyway) and the rest were just Mexicans, none of whom (as far as we know) ever voted for him. In his mind they’re just “collateral damage” (at best) and probably unrelated to real humanity because they weren’t Chicago hoods.

    My real surprise about all this is that the Mexican government has shown about the same level of concern as Obhammed does about his own foreign policy problems: some talk, lots of cover-up, and precious little action.

    Yes, we know that the Mexicans have such a peaceful culture, Aztecs and all…

    Now, come on…considering the state of immigration and border enforcement, what else would you expect him to say to his future voter-pool?

    In other words…..”What difference does it make?”

    @GWR: With any luck, that phrase (“What difference does it make?”) will be repeated all day and night every day and night for ten months leading up to the elections in 2016, with the explanation that yes, the actions of our government DO make a difference both here and abroad.

    And with even more luck, such as Benghazi and Fast and Furious will be tied like an albatross around the necks of anyone even remotely connected to this administration, including Hillarious and Slo Joe.

    He’s not a true American….never was

    These are going to be the new “assault weapon” talking points – despite the fact that AR/AK rifles are used in very, very few shootings in the United States, we must ban them so that they don’t end up in Mexico.
