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.

    And yet 90% of the country doesn’t remember Fast and Furious (if they ever heard about it in the first place) so this is just more left wing hipocracy that will never have an impact at the polls.

    • CatHerder

      Hypocrisy, thy name is Obama.

    • IronButterfly

      Obama must only watch MSNBC to get his news and daily briefing. This is his only excuse for being “unaware” of major news that his administration is involved with. Apparently Obama is a low information voter….

      • Zane Henry

        a low-information presser of the PRESENT button…

        What a disgrace we have in the Oval Office.

    • bradgates

      Anyone have a recommendation for cleaning VOMIT off my computer screen? I read the President’s statement and couldn’t get to the bathroom in time.

      • MJ Pauls

        That’s why I only read transcripts and never watch the video. That and I was teaching my daughter to yell at the TV. Not a great lesson for her to learn.

        Perhaps you can get a liberal neighbor to lick it off, they seem to enjoy the $hit Obama feeds them.

    Obama blaming America for something he did. Is that all this guy knows how to do as President is blame other people? He blamed Bush his entire first term, now in his second term he is targeting other people. Obama is pathetic. If he and his buddy Eric Holder hadn’t have given the drug cartels the guns, it wouldn’t be half as bad south of the border.

    • Ronald

      If I’m a Mexican, it doesn’t matter much if Obama is to blame. I only care that the US is to blame. So in a sense, Obama is right in what he said.

      • Republicanvet

        True low information voting there Ronnie.

      • Republicanvet

        To add, If you had a clue Ronnie, you would be aware of the Univision interview with Barky and how upset they were with HIS gunrunning.

      • grais

        And if you’re an American listening to your president blame your country for what HE did…how do you feel then?

      • http://twitter.com/McCartyGriffin McCarty Griffin

        I think possibly the Mexicans actually shooting those guns come in for some blame, too. But then, that’s no fun. It’s all us, huh?

        And in a sense, you’re a total freaking moron.

      • Cogitation

        Ronald, most of the guns don’t come from here that are killing people there. Maybe you should do some research before buying into the crap this guy feeds the public.

    • Garth Haycock

      Narcissists have extremely high opinions of themselves; they have absolutely no empathy or sympathy for others; they ignore their own wrongdoings and blame others for their failures.

      Obama is a textbook example of a narcissist.

  • arttie

    Their logic is so contorted and painfully contrived, they must have their heads up in a very dark hole.

    He may want to talk to Eric Holder about that!

    Everyone knows that blaming gun dealers along the boarder for those weapons causing violence in Mexico was the real goal of Fast & Furious. They wanted a reason to shut them down. Here’s your proof, right out the mouth of the liar in thief.

    • AaronHarrisinAlaska

      I was pointing this out to my few liberal friends the moment FaF broke news. They called me paranoid. Can’t wait to hear them talking and agreeing with this speech so I can ask if the remember.

    Much like when Obama complained about the sequester, it turns out to be his own fault. Go figure.

  • Wing_attack_Plan_R

    drugs and gun smuggling? from a president who’s done both

  • digitalPimple

    Kind of amazing that the one person in charge of the things coming and going over the boarder stands there and says it’s the people of America that’s the problem.

    • http://twitter.com/R_U_Srs Seriously?

      Right? And remember, with the immigration bill – our borders ARE secure. It boggles the mind.

  • jetch

    so mexico is a country with innocent people being taken advantage of by the mean united states?? is that what he’s saying? it’s not about the corruption in mexico or the lack of human respect in their country, or their lack of education, it’s us?

    i’m curious why it’s mexico and central America with these problems and not Canada or any European countries.
    if i’m given the opportunity, my first impulse isn’t to create a business selling drugs or killing people. yes, there is a demand for illegal drugs, but only someone with low moral standards would capitalize on it. how did *they* get that way?

  • FaithColeridge33

    Ugh.

  • neoface

    More like you and Holder gave the Mexicans guns to kill Americans and themselves. When the truth comes out about “fast and furious” you both should be behind bars. How long can you hide the truth???? And don’t forget Benghazi!!!! These two are domestic terrorists.

  • camnpat

    Another gem from his trip (or was it a press release for this trip?) was saying (in Mexico) that he wants immigration reform because immigrant workers are the engine of this country. The ridiculousness of his statement:

    – If immigration reform is centered around illegal immigrants we are talking mostly about people that don’t have the education or the means to enter the country legally (not in 100% of the case, as many get a Visa but overstay it, but certainly almost in every case).

    – The engine of a country are not the workers but the producers. Without producers the workers would have nothing to work on thus not get a salary and pay taxes. This country right now isn’t lacking workers; it is seriously lacking producers hence the economy has stalled.

    – Somebody without education or financial resources is very unlikely to open a business (somebody with a trade may, but if they couldn’t get a B1/B2 investor Visa to begin with it would be unlikely they have the resources to open any businesses, much less one that can hire labor).

    In other words more of the same from his highness.

    By the way, as he was saying this he said in regards to border security that “Senators McCain and Graham toured the border and saw how safe it is”. Weren’t these two the ones that were surprised when a woman climbed the fence on the Mexico side right in front of them? Good Lord…

    If Barky Dumbmass ordered Nappy to secure the border perhaps he could sleep better at night.

    …but then, given how transparent he is on F&F, I guess he would rather have a crisis so he can exploit it.

  • OLLPOH

    He sure needs to resign…
    He Thinks He Will Shame/Guilt Americans into giving up their guns and freedom and constitution.
    Remember he stated in front of the Latino News Outlet that Fast and Furious was George Bush Operation and when he found out about it Eric Holder stopped it. He Lied Then and He Continues To Lie. He talks like all gunshops are Illegal sellers of guns and no background checks are in place.
    He Wants A Significant Legend For Himself. Remember George Bush upstaged him at his Library last week. His father was tracked by the FBI when he was a student because he had an eye for white women and that was not socially acceptable back then…
    He thinks he is the first black president, yet he is Not. We have yet to have the first black president. He is the first Bi-racial Marxist who is holding office in Airforce One, Marine One, VacationLand, and posing for pictures…
    As he goes around telling the “HaveNots/Oppressed” that “Americans/Oppressors” are the ones he is going to fix/reform!…His books are His Manifesto!

    Obama on Greedy White Folks…
    Taken from his book and in his own words: “Dreams From My Father” page 158 of 235 PDF Form:
    The title of Reverend Wright’s sermon that morning was “The Audacity of Hope.” He began with a passage from the Book of Samuel-the story of Hannah, who, barren and taunted by her rivals, had wept and shaken in prayer before her God. The story reminded him, he said, of a sermon a fellow pastor had preached at a conference some years before, in which the pastor described going to a museum and being confronted by a painting titled Hope.
    “The painting depicts a harpist,” Reverend Wright explained, “a woman who at first glance appears to be sitting atop a great mountain. Until you take a closer look and see that the woman is bruised and bloodied, dressed in tattered rags, the harp reduced to a single frayed string. Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below,
    where everywhere are the ravages of famine, the drumbeat of war,
    a world groaning under strife and deprivation.
    “It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day
    than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year,
    where white folks’ greed runs a world in need,
    apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…
    That’s the world! On which hope sits!”

    That’s diplomacy. Take part of the blame, and work together to solve the problem. Is the US 100% blameless? And if the president has made mistakes (in relation to Mexico-US policy), wouldn’t that be default mean that America has made mistakes?

    • Republicanvet

      Uh, Ronnie, perhaps you want to read up on F&F. I did not run guns to drug cartels resulting in Brian Terry’s death, along with hundreds of Mexican citizens. Don’t smear me with the actions of that marxist fool.

    You know when you see on the news.. all those big blocks of white powder our LEOs bust coming up from Mexico? Ever see big piles of guns busted with all those drugs?
    Yea,, those Uzi’s. AK’s and tons of other guns, many even full-autos?

    Allow me to reiterate,, they are coming up from Mexico, not down from the USA. Full auto’s are not legal in the USA. Those guns flood into Mexico from all over the world, and even from their own military armories (will a Mexican soldier take a bribe?.. no?)

    Those piles of guns travel to the streets in the USA, with all those drugs and end up in drug dealers’ hands. That’s why the gangstas have full auto Uzis and such. However, stopping those illegal guns pouring into the USA, along with all those drugs, are just as easy to stop as the drugs they accompany (meaning, NOT).

    So what does the American government do? They blame it on ourselves.. Riiight. Problem solved,, right?

  • TRONRADIO

    And still, Obama deserves zero respect from any self-respecting American. What a horrible, horrible person, Barack Obama.

    Why wouldn’t he ignore F&F in his remarks. Has he or anyone else been held accountable? He hasn’t had a glove laid on him for much of anything. Doesn’t appear there will be any either so arrogance has been well earned. Only way to change it comes 2014 but then we have to rely on Republican squishes to hold him accountable against a partisan MSM. Feel confident in the result?
