Cue Violin Music....Mexico Is Angry At The United States

Boy Vicente Fox is sure making an ass out of himself lately. I want to break down some quotes that Fox and some of his spokesholes have made in the last few days after the House passed the Immigration bill this week. Here is a link to the article I'm going to quote.

Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez had this to say:
"Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall,"

Oh okay there Ernesto, whatever you say. Why don't you go cry on David Dreier's shoulder. What are you gonna do, threaten to send the rest of your citizens over here? Let's continue.

The Mexican government is scrambling to fight on two fronts. On Monday, it announced it had hired Allyn & Company, a Dallas-based public-relations company to help improve Mexico's image and stem the immigration backlash.

"If people in the U.S. and Canada had an accurate view of the success of democracy, political stability and economic prosperity in Mexico, it would improve their views on specific bilateral issues like immigration and border security," Rob Allyn, president of the PR firm, told The Associated Press Tuesday.

Let's break this down to this absolute beauty of a quote..."success of democracy, political stability and economic prosperity in Mexico". I know, I know, please try not to laugh. This one is a howler though. "Success of democracy" = most corrupt government in Western Hemisphere, "political stability and economic prosperity" has to one of the most dishonest, hilarious, disengenuous, etc remark of all time. How in the hell can this guy say with a straight face that Mexico has econonmic prosperity? Why have 20 million of their citizens illegally come to the US if there's so much economic prosperity happening in Mexico? I'm speechless.
