Obama Repeats '90 Percent' Stat for U.S. Guns Recovered in Mexico The White House stands by the president's use of the word "recovered" in describing the role firearms smuggled from the U.S. play in Mexico's drug war.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago -- What's the difference between "recovered" and "traceable" when it comes to firearms seized in Mexico's bloody war against drug cartels?
The White House says none.
But that's a distinction with a difference, even if President Obama used the words interchangeably last week to talk about the role firearms smuggled from the U.S. play in Mexico's stepped up fight against entrenched, well-armed drug cartels.
"This war is being waged with guns purchased not here, but in the United States. More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that line our shared border," the president said on the subject in his joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Thursday:

Hmm, here’s a novel idea. Secure the border!
Kind of like the “95%’ will get a tax cut charade. I never realized how totally ignorant the public really is. Amazing.
Short answer: Commies Lie!
He is a Lying Kenyan Commie who sleeps in the White House.
Repeat a lie often enough...
%90 is a load of BS. Orwellian lies, as authentic as the Orwellian pet dog story.
And it is not going to improve with talk alone. Until WE THE PEOPLE get that sand goon by the short hairs and make him listen, it is only going to get worse. Until then he is going to continue to destroy the country and enslave us.
This puppy is so out of his depth that he ran south to be with his commie buddies but finds himself caving to a band of chihuahuas.
Time to replace the TOTUS!
When the facts don’t fit your agenda, change the facts and repeat them as needed.
Obama is a damned liar. Why am I not amazed?
He learned at the knee of communist traitors like Alinsky and Ayers.
Impeach Obama for "Lying To The American People"
(revised moonbat meme)
I am waiting for the day when the headline reads
OBAMA TELLS THE TRUTH
First president in US history (possible exception Jimmah Cartah) who goes out of his way to make his country look bad.
How many weapon factories does Mexico have? I would not be surprised if we manufacture the majority of hand guns in the world. I also would not be surprised if the Mexican weapons were purchased using normal channels and not from gun shops across the border.
Obama is the ultimate lie. see tagline.
I would be willing to bet that 90% of the guns captured in Mexico are NOT smuggled from America.
Odooma’s propaganda ministry is racheting up the lies.
Odooma says “we must destroy America”. Change sucks.
I think that what is REALLY going on here is that Obama is crafting a two pronged approach where Calderon and himself play useful idiots to each other, and on behalf of each other’s purposes. Looking for a new rationale and justification for once again making SUPERURGENT the need to clamp down on ALL THINGS GUN in the USA????? Tell your people that guns “FROM THE USA” are responsible for the out of control drug wars in Mexico.Invite the President of Mexico to say the same thing, and also to blame us for using most of the drugs that “necessitates” traffickers in drugs.At the same time, totally ignore the fact that if this is the case, it would all be over in no time if the real priority would be CLOSING THE BORDERS NOW. In this way you can go after whatever you want to relating to guns in the USA, in many cases whatever remaining resisters there are (think Randy Weaver), who are going to resist you and your intimidation just out of general principles.In other words, they intend to reawaken if not create a new population like the vague ,unsubstantiated ones they identified in the notorious DHS document.In this way you can pretend to be to carrying on your own War on Drugs, when it’s real purpose is going to be confiscation of guns, and new gun laws, actively enforced. This sounds like a wet dream for Holder. If this transpires the way I think it will, they are promulgating yet another new civil war, this one on a new front.
It’s not gonna be so easy this time for them, as it’s been for other Administrations. TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE TOO ANGRY AT TOO MANY OTHER THINGS<>
This Administration is making a fatal mistake in piling too many things on the plate at the same time, and then when we resist eating it, pushing our collective faces in the plate.Every issue is promoted as being of utter urgency, and also solvable if only we take this step or that step NOW! Not to mention DO IT ON A GLOBAL SCALE.
What Obama slickly refers to under common rubrics like “working together” and “our common purpose”.
This is PRECISELY the nature and new look of how they
have chosen to overreach,and since they’re basically cynical and dishonest to begin with, THIS
will be their undoing.
Less than 18% of guns recovered at crime scenes in Mexico during 2007-2008 were traced to the US.
