Fast, furious nerve: Obama blames America, gun smuggling for Mexican violence

Speaking this morning in Mexico, President Obama got to the root of the country’s violence epidemic. From Reuters, via The Right Scoop:

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.

(Emphasis ours.)

Not only is Obama once again blaming America first, but he’s citing gun smuggling from the U.S. as cause of the violence. Uh, beg your pardon, Mr. President? Do you have time for a history lesson?

The gall is strong with this one.
