Obama blames American guns for Mexican deaths
The London Daily Mail ^ | May 3, 2013 | David Martosko

Posted on 05/03/2013 4:54:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

President Obama used a speech at Mexico’s Museo Nacional de Antropología – the National Anthropology Museum – to claim that ‘most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.’

‘I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms,’ Obama said. ‘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,’ Obama added. ‘It’s the right thing to do.’

The president did not say if he was specifically referring to the illegal trafficking of firearms across the U.S.-Mexico border, but Senate testimony in 2011 from a top Department of Justice official indicates that he may be correct.

Lanny Breuer, then the Assistant Attorney General, referred a Senate Judiciary subcommittee to statistics showing that 94,000 weapons had been recovered from Mexican drug cartels in the previous five years, including 64,000 – a 70 per cent ratio – that could be traced back to the United States....

Fast-n-furious went to hell in a basket, but I see Obama is still using the talking points from the plan.

Lazy POS isn't he?

The Kenyan should know. He and his pal Eric the Holder sent the guns there. It was for this purpose that these two Nazi bastards sent the “fast and furious” guns to Mexico in the first place. So he could blame America for the Mexicans killing one another. Now these to commie piggies want to capitalize off of what they denied doing. What a couple bags of ****!

Well ... I have to admit that the President is, actually, in a position to speak authoritatively here. Since he's the one who sent "most of the guns" to Mexico ...

“‘And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.’ ‘But at the same time...ensure no one has access to guns.”

There. Perfect Obama Doublespeak.

More proof the bast*rd not only knew about fast & furious but probably ordered it.

Clearly this entire line was to figure prominently in his anti-2nd amendment crusade.

Sorry to disagree... but I believe your statement should read:

"I'm starting to suspect that Obama thinks WE'RE that stupid"

LOL! ...
I had to laugh. You and me both... I think he really is a very dim bulb who has been sheltered all his life into believing that everything he thinks and says is golden. Whereas the reality is that whenever he opens his mouth you just hear inane banalities. Every now and then his teleprompter waxes eloquent -- but when he is on his own - forget it.

If the President of The United States were not a lying sonofabitch, he would have said that he and his Attorney General were responsible for Mexican deaths. What a detestable, degenerate bastard Barack Obama and his entire Marxist lickspittle entourage is. I despise them viscerally.

The “one” really crapped on U.S. today, also saying that American demand for illegal drugs is to blame for all of the cartel murders/savagery.

You know, he never has to run for election again. He was arrogant and narcissistic when he did still have one more run, now that he doesn't ever have to again, he can really be himself. I expect we'll be seeing many more incidents of outright arrogant slaps to America's face now that he can let it all hang out.

I need something to counteract the stupidity from this guy. Let’s see... What can I come up with. Oh yea. How about this. In Texas we used to call him “good hair” but now we just call him “gov good shot”. Enjoy. There are still real men around:

NO SIR,

He is NOT stupid. He is a white hating racist here to DESTROY the country.

He is a COMMIE PIG, treasonous bustard who despises anything white and western. Especially America.

Dinesh Disousa painted him up perfectly. An ANTICOLONIALIST, just like his father(?).

He KNOWS what he is doing. His destruction of the country is deliberate.

Johnny Boy Balless Boehner, the NO NUTZ PUTZ, knows all about it, but he breaks down and cries when he realizes HE is the one who needs to step into the breach. But he is SO SCEEERED of being called a “racisss,” that he RUNS from any confrontation with the kenyan pig.

The kenyan pig and his sidekick holder should have been brought to heel and impeached years ago, if for nothing else than “fast and furious.”

But the NO NUTZ PUTZ, aka BALLESS BOEHNER just CAN’T bring himself to be a historical figure.

Damn them ALL.

Amazingly Obama is more concerned by gun deaths in Mexico than he is concerned about rapes and murders by uninvited Mexican immigrants.

He should have been apologizing, those guns were intentionally sent there by Obama and holder to cause those deaths, all to expedite a socialist gun grab here in the states. Obama killed all those innocents just because he doesn’t want Americans to have the ability to defend themselves.

He is right. HE sold them to the gunrunners who took them to Mexico and HIS State Department approved the sale of THOUSANDS of M4s to the Mexican Army that were later stolen and sold to the drug cartels.

I’m thinking its “Obama knows the GOP is spineless”...

The Dems would have impeached a GOP president if they did this

This is damaging obama... everyone with any intellects at all knows of fast and furious and knows of obama’s and holder's guilt. Rush was pounding this... Beck was pounding this and Hannity is pounding this. obama let his inner communist get the better of his muslim demon with this speech. He will issue a “correction”... one of his “I am sorry if you people are too stupid to understand me” diatribes... if the heat builds.

I don’t think he’s a racist, but I think he despise the liberty represented by the majority of White American males.

His allegiance is not to the fabric of the Constitution, the Country, Christianity, nor Life. He projects the antithesis of American greatness.

I believe this is the first President to ever go overseas and bash America. Yes Carter has done this but at least he was retired....it doesn’t make it much better, but to see the sitting President ‘bash’ America is astonishing. I can’t believe that people are putting up with this. I am so stunned.
