President Obama, in possibly the most solipsistic action by an executive in chief in recent memory, actually dared show his face in Mexico and lecture an audience that Mexico isn’t really to blame for drug-related violence, but it’s the United States’ fault.
Not the United States of which he is in charge, mind you.
Not the United States of which he is the primary representative, the big honcho, the head cheese.
Not the United States whose policies, laws and actions are controlled and enforced by him and his underlings, effectively making him the embodiment of the actual “United States” for all legal purposes.
No, he meant the OTHER United States, the country which you and I live in but with which he has no involvement, except for turning in the occasional voucher for a round of golf.
Here’s how Reuters reported it:
“Drug-fueled violence in Mexico is not entirely the fault of the Mexican people, he said. Instead, the United States shares the blame because much of the violence is centered around the Americans’ demand for illegal drugs and the fact that guns are smuggled into Mexico from the United States.”
Test your memory with these terms:
Choom gang. Uncle Frank’s hotdog cart. Fast and Furious.
The “choom gang” was what a young Barry Obama used to call the gang of potheads he hung out with. Obama was such a stoner that he was known for the habit of sucking the last bit of marijuana smoke from the ceiling of a car’s passenger compartment so it wouldn’t go to waste.
Frank Marshall Davis was a Marxist, family friend and drug dealer who knew Obama’s grandfather and who sold drugs from his hot dog cart while Barry was hanging out with him.
Fast and Furious is the Department of Justice’s program that put American firearms into the hands of Mexican drug dealers who then used the guns to kill hundreds of people in Mexico and a U.S. Border Patrol officer. Rather than get to the bottom of what happened, Obama has used executive privilege to block any investigation of the attorney general and the operation. Evidence suggests that the entire operation was a cynical effort to raise gun crime levels in border states and encourage support for gun control laws.
President Obama has been a drug addict, assisted in drug dealing, and conspired to arm drug dealers.
In Mexico, he said: “We recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States. … We’ll keep increasing the pressure on the gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico, and we’ll keep putting these criminals where they belong — behind bars.”
Now THAT I’d like to see.
