Video: Mexican president criticizes Arizona law at White House presser

posted at 4:20 pm on May 19, 2010 by Allahpundit

Obama dumped on the law this morning too, of course, in between lying about his Senate record on immigration and uttering greeting-card sentiments about how it’s not our borders but our bonds that define us. And yet, and yet, I guarantee that The One listened to this bit from Calderon through gritted teeth. Voters don’t like when a foreign leader criticizes Americans; they like it even less when that leader is here as a guest, using the White House as a soapbox for his criticism; and they like it less still when it comes from a hypocrite whose own country is not only causing the problem Arizona’s trying to deal with but whose immigration laws are even more draconian than America’s are. It’s pure farce. And Obama knows how it’ll play politically. In fact, here’s what Rasmussen was reporting this morning right around the time Calderon was scolding Jan Brewer and company:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 13% of Adults think Mexico wants to stop illegal immigration. Sixty-seven percent (67%) say Mexico does not want to stop its citizens from entering the United States illegally…

Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Americans think Mexico should be asked to compensate U.S. taxpayers to offset such costs [of illegal immigration]…

Most voters (55%) now favor passage of an immigration law like Arizona’s in their own state. When asked specifically about the chief provision of the Arizona law, support is even higher. Sixty-nine percent (69%) believe a police officer should be required to check the immigration status of anyone stopped for a traffic violation or violation of some other law if he suspects the person might be an illegal immigrant.

In other words, Calderon’s credibility on this issue is near zero, yet Obama has no choice but to grin and bear it. He organized this little photo op as a sop to Latino voters who won’t be pleased when Congress’s new amnesty bill ends up going nowhere this year so now he’s forced to take the bitter with the sweet. Hope it was worth it, champ:

For his part, Mr. Calderón conveyed to Mr. Obama the grievances of many Mexicans who, he said, “face discrimination” now in Arizona.

While “respectful of the internal policies of the United States,” Mr. Calderón said, “we will retain our firm rejection to criminalize migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation will be treated as criminals. And we oppose firmly the SB-1070 Arizona law, given unfair principles that are partial and discriminatory.”

I’m not sure which Mexicans Calderon’s presuming to speak for. If he means Mexican citizens who are in the country legally, fair enough. If he means illegals, i.e. if he’s actually complaining on behalf of people who aren’t even supposed to be here, his balls are even brassier than I thought. And if he means Americans of Mexican descent, he’s belittling Obama’s own authority. Last time I checked, if anyone’s going to do any diplomatic conveying on behalf of U.S. citizens, it’s the president of the United States.

Via Breitbart, here’s the vid of him whinging about Arizona’s horrible “discrimination” against lawbreakers. (The voice is his translator’s.) Exit question via Dan Foster at NRO: Why is Obama so worried about discriminatory potential in Arizona’s enforcement of the law but seemingly not so worried about the same potential in enforcement of federal law? If he’s serious about border security (he isn’t, I know, but humor me) then it’s going to mean lots more cops questioning lots more suspects, which means lots more potential for misidentification — no matter who’s doing the questioning.

Yeah, that’s what I keep trying to point out.

He wants people who are here illegally to register, pay a fine, and get in the back of the line. That’s going to require people to “show their papers”, and it’s going to require a mechanism to discover people who don’t voluntarily register. It’s also going to require a penalty for people who don’t/can’t pay their “fine”, and monitoring of who has paid a fine.

How does he propose we do this in a way that isn’t subject to the kind of demagoguery he and his cohorts have engaged in?

F— you, Calderon, you sleazy loser. And if you’re worried about AZ’s law being “unfair,” we’ll be happy to institute a policy of reciprocity: we’ll treat illegal aliens in our country the same way their own government treats illegal aliens in their country.

That means the millions of Mexican illegals here get their asses thrown into prison for years, before being thrown out of the country. We’ll forget about due process and public defenders and hearings and all that “unfair” crap that you Mexicans don’t believe in when it comes to handling your own illegal aliens in Mexico. Sound good to you, Calderon? Yeah, I didn’t think so. So STFU, hypocrite.

I have an idea(that most people here won’t like).. two fences should be built stretching along the border… those fences should be 2-8 miles apart depending where at on the border… A fence on mexico’s side and a fence on the US’s side… in between the fences should be a jointly administered economic zone…

Obama needs to tell Mexico to change their law so American’s can buy land on the American-Mexican border…

Foreigners can make direct land purchases anywhere except the restricted zones that are within 100 kilometers of the U.S./Mexican border and 50 kilometers from a coast.

Obama needs to tell Mexico that if they’re going to be sending so many citizens up here then they need to start teaching english…

After drinking a potion of Saul Alinsky’s, Jeremiah Wright’s, Rahm Emanuel’s, David Axelrod’s, Bill Ayers’, Adolf Hitler’s, King George III, King Louis XVI and his own creation, Barack is transformed into the cruel, remorseless, pathological, misanthropic, pyromaniac (reference note #1) Herr Hussein, representing the hidden side of Obama’s dual nature brought to the fore. Barack has many friends and has a pleasing personality, but as Herr Hussein he becomes more and more dictatorial, more and more scape goating, makes ever longer enemies lists, encourages demonization and dehumanizing of political opponents and becomes ever more fascist like as time goes by as Herr Hussein grows in dominance. After taking this potion repetitively, he no longer needs to rely upon it to unleash his inner fascist demons.

Reference note #1: Such individuals who lack ulterior motive have traditionally been referred to in layman’s terms simply as a variation of a pyromaniac. Most such maniacs lack conscious motivation although they are fully aware of the acts they are failing to stop or they themselves are committing. Typically they will feel intense pleasure, gratification, or relief when causing destruction or when witnessing or participating in the aftermath. Motivation is also classified as pathological and non-pathological. Some research suggests that feeling such joy at horrific situation is pathological. Other research suggests that some motivation for this comes from rational thought. Taking joy in horrific situations for envisioned gains in political power and/or the concealment of the imposition of devious plans are examples of supposed rational decision making.

In layman’s terms, Barack Obama is becoming more and more like a rabid dog.

Justrand on May 19, 2010 at 5:22 PM

I’m not sure which Mexicans Calderon’s presuming to speak for. If he means Mexican citizens who are in the country legally, fair enough.

There really is a lot of back and forth on that border. Mexicans do come into the country to shop and all sorts of things down there. But then again, if the Mexicans did a better job or keeping their side of the border secure, they could be sure that the only people coming here were people who were supposed to be here. That way, they might not have to worry about laws like this.

Back when unemployment was 4.5% and the drug war was not so bad, more people might have been willing to put up with all this, but patience is wearing thin. No doubt about it.

Simple solution Calderone. Keep your criminals, and your people on your side of the border, and laws like this won’t be so popular. We have enough burden taking care of the people here, who eek out a life on the tax payers backs. We don’t need yours added to it, and we certainly don’t want, nor do we need your criminals.

Take care of your side of the fence, before you go telling us how to take care of ours!

we will retain our firm rejection to criminalize migration

So you are going to throw open your own Southern Border. I didn’t think so. You need to put a sock in it.

When the so-called president of the country trashes the Constitution and declares our laws invalid, we are essentially entering a state of disarray.

If illegals are immune to our laws, why should the rest of us bother? We don’t have to either, do we? Do as you like! It’s a damned free-for-all!!

And when the so-called president sides with foreign leaders who disrespect our country, what should we think?

When our laws only apply to the people our political elite despise what should we think? When laws only apply to the law abiding but not the criminals, we have entered into the abyss. Welcome to Barry World.

No need to draw pictures. It’s obvious.

Tomorrow: Obama to allow Al Queda Representative to give Press conference on White House lawn to complain about drone attacks.

..Then next week,Obama will have Charles Manson on the White House lawn to criticize Americans for our lack of “Family Values”….

….what a pathetic President we have to sit there and let the leader of a country that has failed it’s people so badly that they are migrating here by the millions,
….that has immigration laws that are 10 times stricter than ours……
…chastise and point his finger at us while Obama smiles and nods his head.

Obama actions continue to define cowardice.

Indeed. I do everything I can to avoid hearing him, but it’s almost impossible. Even the financial media fawns and drools over every breath he takes. If he farts, they applaud.

He makes my skin crawl with disgust.
