OBAMA BLAMES AMERICA FOR MEXICO’S GUN VIOLENCE

OBAMA BLAMES AMERICA FOR MEXICO’S GUN VIOLENCE



obama-94826304773_xlargeWhich country is Barack Obama President of again? I’m a little confused on this. I mean, a U.S. President is, after all, tasked with protecting the rights of Americans. How does a guy who blames Americans for violent actions of another country and calls for limitations on American rights actually upholding his oath to office?

Via Real Clear Politics.

“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. “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.

It’s also interesting that Obama is in Mexico calling for immigration reform.

Interesting tactic for a guy who is supposed to be representing Americans.

    i guess he forgot about all the guns he and holder sold to the Mexican drug cartels???? Old Barry has lost his mind again

      I think it is the American arms manufacturers who are selling most of the guns to Mexico. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-500202_162-57337289/legal-u.s-gun-sales-to-mexico-arming-cartels/

        Roger you are an idiot, gun manufacturers are legally selling guns to Mexicos military and Police, if the mexican government is reselling them to cartels how is it the fault of the gun manufacturers? Dude keep drinking the Kool-Aid!

        Roger, cut me a break, the guns are coming from their own police and military..

        • http://www.twitterthoughts.com RogerJH

          Nina, did you watch the report on the link I sent? It is the American arms manufacturers who are selling most of the guns to Mexico.

      • SpeedDemon174

        So fast and furious never happened?

    Confused? It’s really not that complicated. (1) Americans want drugs. (2) Drugs are illegal and therefore expensive, so criminals can make lots of money from drugs. (3) Mexicans are poor and desperate, so they sell expensive drugs to Americans who pay lots of money. (4) Mexican cartels fight among themselves for control of the drugs trade. (5) They buy guns from American arms manufacturers who are happy to take their drug money. (6) Ergo, America is to blame for Mexico’s gun violence.

      Doesn’t that make Mexico responsible for America’s drug problem? Oh and those gun manufacturers are selling guns legally. If Mexico doesn’t want it to happen they can shut down the guns being imported. Pretty simple stuff here, Roger.

      • http://www.twitterthoughts.com RogerJH

        Chad, it seems there is a lot of pressure on both sides. US gun manufacturers I imagine don’t mind too much if they are making sales legally or otherwise. My point is that the drugs trade is driving arms sales in Mexico. If drugs were decriminalized in this country, that would go a long way to neutralizing the problem, since it would take profit out of the system, and allow people to not have to mix with criminals to purchase drugs.

      You leftest idiot. Go live in Mexico because people like you and obama are the blame we have stupidity here in the US. Your ignorant comments are only proof why America is dying in intelligence… Go back where you came from and support their ideas because it’s obvious you’re a transplant and have no respect for American pride… What flag do you stand for? Mexico? Then go back there and be proud.

          Yeah, sorry your guy won, that pesky Constitution just drives him crazy.

        Fantastic. Respond to mostly-reasonable argument with name-calling and hyperbole. You’re doing well.

      You are not worth insulting! You already know what you are!! :(

      • http://www.twitterthoughts.com RogerJH

        Some of your friends seem to disagree. Let me be your punchbag today!!!

    • chinagreenelvis

      All correct, except that “America” isn’t “to blame.” What’s more, the President isn’t even making that statement. The headline of this article is politically dismissive tripe that completely ignores whether or not the claims being made are true. It’s completely misleading and irresponsible journalism.

  • papmoose

    this guy obama is a real piece of garbage.AMERICANS better wake up before the STARS AND STRIPES become the hammer and sickle.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kurt.cook.14 Kurt Cook

    YES , most of the guns used in Mexico to commit crimes did come from the United States BECAUSE YOU SENT THEM THERE, ASSHOLE!

      and he wants to allow them amnesty yo come here to live- for free..

  • http://www.facebook.com/martha.l.vincent Martha Lee Vincent

    Obama is the one sneaking guns to Mexico via his gun-running program, which was illegal. Don’t blame the U.S. citizens for everything. Its his fault.

    • http://www.facebook.com/martha.l.vincent Martha Lee Vincent

      He was running these guns to Mexico so that when some of these guns were used to kill U.S. citizens, which they were, he could call for gun confiscation in the U.S. Sorry Oscumma, your fault again for selling these guns to Mexico

    Obuma you and Holder are the Idiots. Fast and Furious resulted in dead Americans which you used executive order to cover your asses. Jackazz.

  • chinagreenelvis

    The headline of this article is completely misleading. But then, I imagine this whole website is pretty much nothing but ideology disguised as news. Tell the reader how they should feel, garner more support for your cause. Don’t worry about whether or not they actually read the articles; by the time they do, they’ll already have formed an opinion that only critical thinking could change.

    Ok. Now don’t let that idiot back in the country.

  • falling321

    So Mexico not only refuses to help close the border, they encourage their people to come here illegally, both to work and to sell drugs in order to keep money flowing back to Mexico. They purchase our guns legally in the guise of law enforcement use and then sell them to the cartels who use them to kill Mexican and American citizens. So Obama runs across the border and blames everything on US? Seems to me he should stay in DC and start looking for ways to enforce the laws we already have on the books, then begin working as hard as he can to strengthen those laws to remove the rest of them and keep them from ever returning! We do not need to welcome those who came here illegally as citizens or even make them legally welcome. And we certainly do not need a president who blames us for their crimes!

    Its the right thing to do….its the right thing to do…..one of his favorite quotes, meaning ….its the right thing to do for HIS agenda, which is to destroy America.

    • BillboyBaggins

      That, along with “common sense”.

  • Mindmech

    It worries me when this guy says “it’s the right thing to do”. I would prefer “it’s the constitutional thing to do”. The right thing is for him to step down. We should fashoin the elections after his method of trying to over ride the 2nd amendment. Keep voting on the candidate until we get the one we want.

      We need to make it easier to IMPEACH Bastards like him! Semper Fi.

  • Bob_Knows

    He’s at least partly right. Odumbo and Holder sold thousands of guns to Mexican gangs. They are responsible. America at fault comes from the President.

    This guy is a sick, twisted, narsassistic, American hating creep and if he was not a CIA creation funded by George Soros he would never of got to first base politically. They plan to make an icon and legend out of this misfit fraud!!!

  • ryandebock

    Ya all the guns in the middle east are ours too. The government is the ones givinng them the guns. Not us. Maybe instead of the government taking our guns we should take theirs.

    Another statement from a non american running the U.S.Impeach this bastard!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/lllSTRIPESlll Ken Pritchett

    From what I understand, very similar to Obama running guns to Syria through the embassy at Benghazi.

  • hansen.levi@gmail.com

    Too bad that he’s right. We intentionally
    smuggled Mexico guns from Bush era laws on – and we continue to ignore
    decriminalization of Marijuana laws which only strengthen their drug
    cartels running drugs into the biggest drug using country in the world.
    Hate Obama all you want but he’s right about this and I recommend that
    you all better educate yourself.

  • gwedem5995

    Yeah, I agree Speed Demon. Ofcourse we will never know how many or who got them. I understand this was also done under Bush but when that adm realized it could not track them, they called off the program. It is a shame Obama was not smart enough. Maybe that is why Homeland security is buying up all those bullets, so they can give them to Mexico and all the other low lifes all over the world.

    Lets see….isn’t it the obamination administration that has been running guns to Mexico?

  • http://twitter.com/concession1 Kimberly Woods

    Obama wouldn’t know the right thing to do if it bit him in the Ass! Obama is the only president I have ever heard blame Americans for every other countries problems, With no mention of all of the BILLIONS OF HARD EARNED TAXPAYER DOLLARS T;HAT WE SEND TO ALL OF THESE COUNTRIES THAT HATE US FOR WHAT WE HAVE AND OUR FREEDOMS. OBAMA NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED, She sooner the better.

  • confused

    I don’t care who is at fault. As the president of the Unites States, neither President Obama, nor any other president, should ever go to another country and speak ill of this nation under any circumstance. If there is something that needs to be dealt with on our soil, we’ll deal with it, but making a negative statement about the U.S. while on foreign soil is absolutely not okay.

    Illegal immigration has tripled since they’ve been talking about Amnesty according to data and reports – so not sure where that reporter is getting her information… must be from the liar in chief’s office.

    It must have slipped his mind that HE and HE ALONE OK’d the sale of guns to the drug cartels in mexico! This moron just keeps getting dumber and dumber, maybe it all the drugs he is on! Semper Fi.
