Skip to comments.Obama Alienates Canada And Mexico At Three Amigos
Posted on 04/04/2012 6:41:51 AM PDT by bkopto
Obama's neglect of our nearest neighbors and biggest trade partners has created deteriorating relations, a sign of a president who's out of touch with reality. Problems are emerging that aren't being reported.
Fortunately, the Canadian and Mexican press told the real story. Canada's National Post quoted former Canadian diplomat Colin Robertson as saying the North American Free Trade Agreement and the three-nation alliance it has fostered since 1994 have been so neglected they're "on life support."
Energy has become a searing rift between the U.S. and Canada and threatens to leave the U.S. without its top energy supplier.
The Winnipeg Free Press reported that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper warned Obama the U.S. will have to pay market prices for its Canadian oil after Obama's de facto veto of the Keystone XL pipeline. Canada is preparing to sell its oil to China.
Until now, NAFTA had shielded the U.S. from having to pay global prices for Canadian oil. That's about to change.
Excelsior of Mexico City reported that President Felipe Calderon bitterly brought up Operation Fast and Furious, a U.S. government operation that permitted Mexican drug cartels to smuggle thousands of weapons into drug-war-torn Mexico. This blunder has wrought mayhem on Mexico and cost thousands of lives.
The mainstream U.S. press has kept those questions out of the official press conferences, while Obama has feigned ignorance to the Mexicans and hasn't even apologized.

Harper is entering full "Don't get mad, get even" mode and he will drop the bomb on Obama this summer primarily on energy and forcing up gasoline prices before the election. Look too for him to pull the plug on a lot of Obama favorites and announce some bilateral agreements with China, Japan and Korea who are all in the market for Canadian energy, coal, natural gas and oil, each one undercutting the US and their green dreaming. Harper will not utter a nasty word, he will just act and screw Obama and his friends on the left...particularly his buddies in Tides Foundation and all the envirowhackos trying to stop the energy development by treating them as foreign invaders and pulling their charitable standing.
Just as I suspected. He's a deadbeat President.
I wish the general American public could remember to contrast this with his bowing to the Saudi king. It seems too many can’t even make the clear connection between his policies and words, and rising gas prices.
Yo, El Presidente, you need to keep up. F&F is water under the bridge. You should've asked Urkel what he intends to do with the 450 million rounds of ammo he recently purchased.
Well wait a minute now. Just the other day I was old the North American Union was near. Now I’m told Obama is screwing over our neighbors and negotiating the relationship.
So which is it? It’s so hard to keep track...

I think he’s worse than deadbeat, he’s actively malignant. I don’t call him a traitor, he never had loyalty to this country. It’s bizarre that this anti-American usurper is in the White House.
He’s digging and punching deeper.
Obama Alienates Canada And Mexico . . . and most of America!!
“Excelsior of Mexico City reported that President Felipe Calderon bitterly brought up Operation Fast and Furious, a U.S. government operation that permitted Mexican drug cartels to smuggle thousands of weapons into drug-war-torn Mexico.

There is no question. Soetoro is continuing to bring this country to its knees.
Same old, same old...
Same goes for Canada's softwood stumppage fees
. Problems are emerging that aren’t being reported. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT......
Re: Your Post #1: And in addition to that, if President Calderone of Mexico, excoriated Obozo, say, around Labor Day Weekend and announced that he believes there will be better U.S. / Mexico relations with a Republican Administration....... that could cut into Obozo’s Hispanic vote more than anything.
ah, his core competency and he still blew it.
bbbb...bbbbbu.....bbb...bbbbbbut I thought that the world was going to absolutely LOVE us once we cast off the rule of that Eeeeeeeeeevil warmonger George W. Bush, and put The Savior in charge.
Now we even have CANADA spitting mad at us? Nice goin’, Barry.
