And To Take Our Minds Off...

Yet another Obama mugging for the cameras, hopefully, a little change of subject. But first, are you as sick as I am of seeing his face EVERYWHERE??? Hell, you can't even go to the GROCERY store without seeing him on the front of Vanity Fair now. Anyway, he's back on tv, trying to convince us of why his BS plan of expanding the government even more, co-opting companies whole cloth (I could be wrong, but isn't that Socialism with a Capital "S" with a potential move to full on Communism when the government takes over COMPANIES?), and our ever expanding national debt, once again, I want to talk about Secretary Clinton.

Yes, that tireless worker for our country, who does not need a teleprompter every where she goes (I wonder if that is how he has conversations with family and friends, like all of those hilarious YouTube videos out now, showing the teleprompter as Obama's best friend - I'll include a link at the bottom just for fun), and is capable of speaking extemporaneously without looking like a deer in the headlights or stammering for 15 seconds at a time. Ahem.

Secretary Clinton is on her way to Mexico to discuss trade issues, but will also be discussing the increasing levels of violence there as the drug wars rage on. It is a pretty scary time for Mexico, and for the border states in the US. In fact, it is seen as such a concern that Janet Nappolitano announced Tuesday a $184 MILLION dollar boost to border security.

In case you aren't familiar with what is happening, here is one example:

And here is another one:

As you can see, Secretary Clinton will have her work cut out for her. Once she is there, and has had a chance to meet with folks, I'll let you know how it turned out. This is a big deal, though, and cannot be understated - what happens in Mexico definitely has an impact on us here in a NUMBER of ways. The violence alone, especially so close to the borders, is already having a massive impact(feel free to jump in with a way you see the impact, from immigration on). So, I'll get back to you on this very important trip.

And as promised, here is just one of the videos out now about Obama's relationship with his teleprompter:
