Obama and Claderone presser.
Alright, here goes Obama talking about Mexico.
I have heard investment and green energy and climate change and clean energy several times already.
Interestingly, my FOX News connection went sour, so MSNBC it is.
There he is going on about jobs again. And now on to druuuuuugs. Now he praises Mexico for all its hard work.
Southbound flow of guns? We are putting Gunrunners behind bars? Oh Really? Interesting choice of words there Obama. What a liar.
Blah blah blah about bi partisan immigration reform. Whatever dude.
A quick point to Libya. An effort to squash some questions, it seems to me. " We are responding quickly" he says. Jeez. "Approved the use of military aircraft" for Egyptians? How is that about Libya? "We will continue to send a clear message" ha ha ha ha. Sure Obama. He calls for Gaddafi "to leave".
Calderone talking now- He agrees with "co responsibility". Yup, mexican drug cartels are our fault, well 1/2 our fault.
He congratulates Obama on a coming visit to South America. I guess that is kinda like a nobel peace prize. Congratulations are due Obama before even accomplishing anything.
"The 21st century border"? Huh? Ruh Ro. North American Union, perhaps?
The rights of immigrants, huh Calderone? How about their rights in MEXICO? How about being concerned about them THERE in Mexico? Praise for NAFTA? Unsurprising. "Mexico will be phasing out tarriffs for noncompliance"? That one confuses me. Must be a WTO situation, but I am unfamiliar with that scenario - it has something to do with trucking over the border.
He finally said something about "weapons", but quickly and dancing right over it.
Neither one will mention "Brian Terry", Gee, I wonder why that is????? Will any member of the Press?
Claderone praises Obama's leadership in Africa. LMAO. Suuuure.
From the AP - a question about LIBYA. No fly zone and military intervention is the focus. And then OMG THE NFL!!!!! Then he asks Calderone about arming US agents within Mexico.
Answers - Obama points to how much money the NFL owners make. I am expecting a "at some point you have made enough money" line from him. He raises his voice on the 9 BILLION dollar amount but says it is for owners and players to solve without the Pres__ent. On to Libya. Gadaffi "has lost legitimacy" and "wants to be unambigous". Gadaffi "must step down and leave." "They will be monitored and held accountable." I expect a harshly worded letter from the UN.
Militarily? Obama "wants what is best for the Libyan people". Notice he does not say the priority is what is best for the AMERICAN people. He talks about us acting UNILATERALLY regarding freezing assets as a measure of success.
Didn't the media crucify W for doing acting unilaterally?
Now he says we must "do this" with other other countries. So which is it Obama?
Ah, "as a member of the world community" ---- riiiiight. "Full range of opportunites available". Dang man, which is it?
Now we are going to possibly feed Tripoli.....Obama was like a deer in headlights.
Calderone talking now - "Masacre of civilians cannot go unpunished." Is he talking about Libya or Mexico?? And he points to the the Human Rights Commission at the U.N. Yee Haaaa. He "condemns acts of violence with weapons".
Again with the "shared responsibility" line. He talks about "Legal Restrictions" stopping enforcement ummm stopping our Nationals, government officials, from being armed. I see, he is back to Mexico now. "In dialogue" about the situation (our agents being armed). Hold on a second, I thought Obama said that US officials were subject to DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY as a result of international agreements? That is what he said about the agent in Pakistan accused of killing two Pakistanis. What say you Obama? Crickets! What a chump.
And then Calderone is talking about the NFL. Sheesh. More shared responsibility I guess, maybe part of that North American union. Mexico has exactly ZERO to do with the NFL. Pure foolishness this is. (Afterward, I view the NFL as a filler to facilitate Obama and Calderone wasting time to avoid more questions.)
Mexican questioner now - To Obama about the Second Amendment. He talks about it allowing US Citizens to carry weapons. He doesn't understand what it is or where rights come from, that is for sure. This Mexican asks him to VETO the SECOND AMENDMENT and when he is going to do it! SERIOUSLY! HOLY CRAP! How is Obama gonna field THAT one. This should be good. This Mexican just asked Obama a tougher question than any US media hack ever has! Obama is goona run and duck and bob and weave.
Obama answers- The Pres__ent is "bound by the Constitution" and he "Believes in the Second Amendment." BOVINE EXCREMENT. He even said "HUNTING". Obama is such a liar.
"Constrain gunrunning into Mexico"? He says the "challenge" is "more effective enforcement". He ducks explaining a RIGHT versus a LAW. He says "we have to do more". "Provide additional tools to LEO".
"The battle inside Mexico is our responsibility." MY GOD, did he really say that? Yes he did.
More "guns flowing south" dogma. More LIES fom Obama. Cartels have full autos and full autos aren't flowing south. Its garbage. A huge talking point dodge!
'His (calderone) goals are our goals" says Obama. What about AMERICAN goals you fruit loop??? "Our job is to help with equipment". Where is it written that the US taxpayer has to fund equipment inside Mexico???? Just dang, man. Ridiculous. "We have made great progress" he says. More Bovine Excrement. Napalitano offers that tripe too, but folks in the border area flat out know otherwise - and say so. LEO and private Citizen alike.
Claderone now - Weapons to mexico....the AG is making "important efforts". Uh huh, sure. "More runners caught than ever before" he says. Uh huh, sure. He talks about "political restrictions" upon Obama. Yeah, they are called RIGHTS, you buttnugget. He is talking about "sealing" the ports of entry. By golly, I found something to agree with!!!
Oh, "they didn't know they were attacking US agents". Suuuure, they didn't know. (Talking about the unarmed agents who got blasted in Mexcio) The lies are flying now, buddy. He was absolving his own drug cartels with a sob story. Unreal. Then he says -"Extra ordinary actions require extra ordinary responses". Ouch, that is the "Never let a crisis go to waste!" factor!
Obama jumps in about extradition. But then says he can't really talk about that.....
That is it. Out they go, poof, it is over. One question from the AP and one question from the Mexican press. This was the most controlled and scripted presser yet. Obama was all about his notecards - meaning he had the answers ready before the questions were even asked. The Press "Corpse" had better take notice - they just got SNUBBED bigtime.
MSNBC goes straight to commentary about Libya. It will be interesting to see what Andrea has to say about that Second Amendment talk. Imagine that, not a word!
