“The gall is strong with this one.”

You won’t be surprised to learn that President Obama said this while making absolutely no mention of Fast & Furious. You also won’t be surprised that Obama did insinuate that Americans’ Second Amendment rights are behind the majority of gun violence in Mexico:

President Obama used a speech at Mexico’s Museo Nacional de Antropología – the National Anthropology Museum – to claim that ‘most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.’

‘I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms,’ Obama said. ‘And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.’

‘But at the same time, as I’ve 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.’

Mmm hmm.

Obama then reminded the audience that the majority of the cocaine smuggled into the U.S. comes through Mexico, and asked their government to do more to help stop it. Wait, no, he didn’t say that:

Doug Ross sums it up: “In other words, Obama is so completely surrounded by sycophants that no one objected when he floated the idea of giving a speech indicting his own actions.”
