    Excuse me, Barack Obama actually said “the United States,” but the headline would be more accurate. While the President told an audience in Mexico that “Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” he somehow forgot to mention that thousands of them came specifically under the auspices of the ATF and the Department of Justice during his first term (via Real Clear Politics): And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States. (Applause.) I think many of you know that...

    Speaking to a Mexico City crowd on Friday, President Barack Obama said he would not be president if not for Latino voters, and then he pledged immigration reform in the United States to legalize those who are here illegally. Without the strong support of Latinos, including so many Mexican-Americans, I would not be standing here today as president of the United States, Obama said. Thats the truth.

    President Barack Obama, speaking in Mexico City on Friday, said the United States is responsible for much of the crime and violence in Mexico because of the demand for drugs and the illegal smuggling of guns across the southern border. Obama acknowledged the illegal smuggling of guns into Mexico by American criminals, but did not mention the Justice Departments Operation Fast and Furious that allowed the flow of about 2,000 U.S. guns to Mexican drug trafficking organizations. Fast and Furious began in the fall of 2009 and was halted in December 2010 after two of the weapons from the...

    "Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States," President Obama said during a speech at Mexico's Anthropology Museum. "I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.""But at the same time, as Ive 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...

    By STEPHANIE CONDON May 3, 2013 Obama Tells Mexico: We Are "Equal Partners" Amid attempts in the U.S. to pass immigration reform and build a stronger North American economy, President Obama on Friday sought to put the United States' relationship with Mexico on stronger footing, saying that the two nations are "equal partners." "Just as Mexico is being transformed, so too are the ties between our two countries," he said before an enthusiastic crowd at Anthropology Museum in Mexico City. "As president, I've been guided by a basic proposition -- in this relationship there is no senior partner or junior...

    I'm an eye witness to Obama's motorcade yesterday. The Zocolo and adjoining areas were securely tied up. The city closed down at least two metro stops (that I saw). The microbus I took downtown dropped me off about 1/2 mile from the Zocolo (its regular route) because the city had closed the streets to car traffic. Mucha policia guarded ubiquitous metal gates. Then came the long motorcade. Secret Service everywhere. I honestly did not know that the hoopla was for Obama. I thought it was for the President of Mexico and his very famous wife, Gaviota (Angelica Rivera). I've seen...

    As the White House first announced in March, Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Mexico and Costa Rica later this week. The trip is billed as "an important opportunity to reinforce the deep cultural, familial, and economic ties that so many Americans share with Mexico and Central America." And at yesterdays White House press conference, the president stated that he is "very much looking forward to taking the trip down to Mexico" this week. But the trip wont exactly be cheap for taxpayers, assuming the costs mirror those incurred by the American taxpayers for President Obama's last trip to Mexico,...
