So sayeth President Obama during a photo op on his tour of South America. If irony be the food of love, Obama’s unintentionally hilarious remarks would make him a google-eyed gourmand. In other words, considering the ongoing ATF Gunwalker scandal, President Obama’s pledge to take guns away form South American cartels has got to have journalists sniggering into their iPads. Actually, no. Here’s how the AP followed-up on that knee-slapper . . .
But Obama, in calling for a new discussion on guns, recently declined to endorse the very gun control measures he had supported in the past.
Right. Gun control measures in the U.S. That’s the key to stopping the cartels. Maybe Mexican Ambassador Carlos Pascual decided to quit his job to join the Brady Campaign.
Meanwhile, former Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo has called for Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano to resign over her agency’s knowledge of, and perhaps participation in, the ATF Gunwalker scandal. The first of many such calls, one assumes.
