Awful… Obama Blames US For Drug Violence in Mexico… While in Mexico (Video)

Gateway Pundit

Remember: It’s all your fault. Barack Obama blamed the US for drug violence in Mexico… During his press conference in Mexico.

Isn’t he supposed to be on our side? Reuters reported:

Obama tried out a little Spanish on his audience, saying “Es un placer estar entre amigos” (It is a pleasure to be among friends) and struck a deferential tone in speaking about the United States’ southern neighbor.

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.

“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,” Obama said.

Obama’s goal on a three-day trip to Mexico and Costa Rica is to emphasize the need for stronger commercial ties and broaden relations beyond the security partnerships that have dominated the past.

Obama In Mexico: Without Latino Support I Wouldn’t Be President…

Aided by his non-stop demagoguery.

Via TPM:

President Barack Obama gave a shout out to Hispanic Americans in Mexico City on Friday — an electorate with ever-growing clout widely considered to have propelled the 44th president to a comfortable re-election in 2012.

“In fact without the support of Latinos including so many Mexican Americans, I would not be standing here today as president of the United States. That’s the truth,” Obama said, speaking before a group of students at the National Museum of Anthropology.

Latinos voted for Obama over Republican Mitt Romney 71% to 27% in 2012, according toCNN. In 2008, Obama received 67% of the Latino vote.
