By STEPHANIE CONDON May 3, 2013 Obama Tells Mexico: We Are "Equal Partners"
Amid attempts in the U.S. to pass immigration reform and build a stronger North American economy, President Obama on Friday sought to put the United States' relationship with Mexico on stronger footing, saying that the two nations are "equal partners."
"Just as Mexico is being transformed, so too are the ties between our two countries," he said before an enthusiastic crowd at Anthropology Museum in Mexico City. "As president, I've been guided by a basic proposition -- in this relationship there is no senior partner or junior partner. We are two equal partners--two sovereign nations that must work together in mutual interest and mutual respect, and if we do that, both Mexico and the United States will prosper."
Mr. Obama on Friday was on the second day of his three-day trip to Mexico and Costa Rica, where the economy has been the biggest item on the agenda. Yesterday, he met with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and the two leaders reaffirmed their commitment to concluding negotiations with other nations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) this year. The U.S. has the opportunity to help lift Mexico up on the international stage -- which, in turn, would help the U.S, given their closely linked economies.
Mr. Obama said that "Mexico that is taking its rightful place in the world," joining the ranks of the world's largest economies and standing up for democracy.

I say we establish the same immigration laws here that they have in Mexico!
Ahh yes, more results on what happens when a foreigner is unconstitutionally elected twice to the office of POTUS.
Can’t wait for the beheadings to start!
This is generic diplomatic boilerplate.
And the horse you rode in on.
And yo’ mama!
And yo’ grandmama.
Too bad you never had a real dad...b*tthole.
Yes they are equal partners, they both want to see America destroyed.I don’ know if we will ever recover from the damage this revolting, hateful, Hell Spawn is doing.
is Obama trying to conquer the country of Mexico by stealing its citizens ?
Obama and his rats and RINOS are equal partners with the Mexicans in soaking the American taxpayers.
Mexico is a third world country where the rule of law has broken down. So I would not agree with Obama, yet, not until he’s had a couple more years in power.
Equal Partners?? Yes, well I had a marriage like that once....I was smart enough to get a divorce!
Just when does Mexico give something to this ‘partnership’ besides it’s criminals and poor?
So is he going to allow Mexico to traffic guns to our unsavory groups?
What is this AHOLE’S obsession with equality. I mean really, he thinks everyone and everything should be equal. Life ain’t like that pal. The more I think about it the more I’m thinking it may come from some deep seated inferiority complex.
Liberals don't like to hear that.
Hawaii, Now That's Good Weed!
Equal partners? You might as well say America and Somalia are equal partners.
I sent this off to my local rag....pretty sure they will print it:
“Open letter to Mr. President Obama:
Dear Your Excellency, Sir:
I notice you were addressing a college crowd in Mexico about your legislative agenda. Are you running for office in Mexico? If so, please let me know when I can contribute.
During the address, I notice you alleged most all the firearms used during violence in Mexico came from the US. I missed the part wherein you could have pointed out it was your administration which was responsible for many of these firearms going to the drug cartels during a program run under the auspices of your attorney general. One of these firearms was used to kill a US Border Patrol Agent but rather than aid the Congress in its endeavor to find out how all this came to be, you used executive privilege to withhold documents from the Congress. Did you include this in your presentation?
I also heard you thank those in attendance for making your election win possible. Are you admitting some illegally registered people voted for you or did they illegally contribute to your campaign?
Lastly, you refer to US policies interfering with the rights of Mexican Citizens. What policies were you talking about? If it is our immigration policy, do you understand you as President are responsible for carrying out the laws of the US whether you agree with them or not? I would like to point out you are President of the US, not imperial ruler of the world or perhaps just of the Americas; so your feelings about specific laws or things like the Constitution are moot regarding your duty to carry out those laws.
Does everyone love us yet?
This is probably the only topic with which this crackhead has any first hand experience.
“Cant wait for the beheadings to start!”
Started some time ago....
Mexican Man Cops No Contest In Arizona Beheading
Thu Mar 21 06:57:15 2013
[snip]ormer DEA supervisor Phil Jordan insists that the drug traffickers’ most gruesome tactics including beheadings are occurring on American soil, and says three beheadings in 2011 — two in Arizona and one in Oklahoma — “have cartel written all over them” as reported by KRGV: “’One is too many; two is too many. Three should send an alarm,’ says Jordan.”
Surprised he didn’t make it the 58th state.
Mexico isnt subordinate to America, but they are far from equal. If anything Mexica is dragging down north America and the world. Obama’s w ords are code for ‘The red carpet has been deployed.’ He should have been saying GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER COMPADRES!
He had no problem insulting Great Britain.
He had no problem insulting Great Britain.
Okay, if they are equal partners then they can begin paying us back all the money they owe the taxpayers that have been responsible for their lazy citizens who have been mooching off of us for years.
Equal my fanny! Equal only in the Kenyans eyes. Lord only knows how much more of this country he gave away while there.
... US policies interfering with the rights of Mexican Citizens.
Seriously? He said that?
How about the Mexican CITIZENS who illegally jump the border and then interfere with the rights, safety and employment opportunities of US citizens?
I’ve been looking for one like that.
Mexico has a much better unemployment rate than we do now. But some people here still feel so sorry for those poor people that “just want a chance to work”. They just want a chance to take our jobs (maybe)and take advantage of free social services. He should be urging Mexico to offer the same redistribution policies we have (and they pay for it), get rid of the drug violence and corruption, and the Mexicans wouldn’t want to come here.
Something to that effect, it was not a verbatim quote but close enough.
He should have started out by saying, “I can only speak for 47% of the country...”
If this bull**** is true, why are Mexicans still risking their lives trying to get the hell out of Mexico and sneak into the United States? Hmmmmmm? Sorry Barry, you are a liar.
So we have troops halfway around the world battling cave dwellers who are so dirt poor, they have no financial means to attack this country all the while leaving this cesspool called Mexico unattended.
Thousands and thousands of violent deaths through the last decade. hundreds of thousands of illegals breaking the law to get into this country. Drugs saturating our cities originating from Messy-co.
Not a troop one to guard our border nor occupy the streets of Mexico in an effort to stop the terrorism down South of the border.
What a hypocrite.
By the end of his term we may be equal partners.
Sickening display of pandering to the Mexicans and his usual apologizing for America. This disgrace for a POTUS always puts American interests last.
He could have referred to Mexico as a partner, no more.
“I say we establish the same immigration laws here that they have in Mexico!”
Great idea...then add. . .
...the same rights of US citizens to own real property in MX ...
. . .give them California as a token of good faith, so we can be rid of Franken-Feinstein, Peloser, Jerry Brown the Clown, Hollywood idiots,et al ...then adjust the Electoral College accordingly.
... and then the newly former US citizens now MX citizens can serve on Mexican juries and demonstrate equality of justice. . .
I am starting to like this US = MX equality view
So will Mexico now give me a bunch of free chit for crossing their border and illegally setting up residence there?
Well, I guess Mexico and Chicago (or maybe Detroit) are starting to be “equal”.
Is Reggie on this trip?
