Back in April of 2009, while slobbering all over his incompetent boob counter part to south, the P-BO blamed America for much of Mexico’s drug cartel violence. The blame America first in chief said,
“I will not pretend that this is Mexico’s responsibility alone. The demand for these drugs in the United States is what’s helping keep these cartels in business. 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.”
Many are from the gun shops that line our borders. But what the P-BO didn’t say was that most of the guns were coming from the @$$clowns of the P-BO’s own administration. I’m sure Lex blasted the P-BO for his comments blaming America first for problems in Mexico. Any problems in Mexico have a hell of lot more to do with the rampant corruption of their own government and ridged class system than anything the US is doing along our shared border.
Which makes one wonder, why would anyone be carrying a Mexican flag at those pro illegal alien protests? They left the land of BS corrupt government, know as Mexico, for a reason. Why would they come here to make the money that the corruptocrats in Mexico won’t allow them to earn, then show support for the $h!thole system that kept the boot on their throat?
But I digress. The P-BO and his boob boys were supplying the very weapons that the P-BO was lamenting through some hare-brained ATF scam know as Gunwalker Operation Fast and Furious. Gee I wonder who at the ATF thinks of themself as Vin Diesel? The thought that any grown up in a position of authority is using a code name from a string of triple D movies may point to part of the problem at the ATF. If they were picking operation names from moivie titles, Anchorman, Vacation or Step Brothers would more accuately dipict what was going on. Not since the ATF’s blown raid in Waco has that agency been caught in such a dunderheaded operation.
Makes you wonder how that briefing went down. ATF agents Larry, Curly and Moe stroll into the head of the ATF’s office and say, “Hey chief we got a swell idea. Let’s give automatic weapons to guys trafficking drug across our southern border.” “You boys are geniuses! Get right on it.”
The P-BO, of course, claims not to know anything about the gunrunner operation. Seeing as he knows so little about so much, I tend to believe him. But his Attorney General, Erick the wad Holder should have known. If he didn’t, he’s a clueless buffoon, which in his case is true but still no defense for not knowing.
The more likely scenario in the wad’s case is that he knew about it, but like the ATF clown thought, “Gee, we can stir up some trouble our border and blame it all on the second amendment crowd. Win win. And if a bunch of people get killed in the process, even some of our own DEA, Border Patrol and ATF agents, that’s too bad. They will be martyrs in the bigger war on people who own guns. You got to break a few eggs to make an omelet.”
Heads should roll on this one. Everyone in several agencies are already circling the wagons looking for a sacrificial lamb high enough up the food chain to satisfy congress. Congress should take the lamb and then keep the pressure on until the wad is sent packing.
