Start with home repairs

The nerve of the Mexican president to tell the United States how to run this country!

Instead of such out-of-line meddling, he ought to be asking himself the following questions about his own government.

Question 1: Why are so many of my people so desperate to leave Mexico? Answer: Because life there is miserable.

Question 2: Why is life so miserable in Mexico? Answer: Because Calderon and his ilk have for decades foisted corrupt government on their people while lining the pockets of an elite few and leaving the majority of people uncared for and impoverished.

If he would spend half the time he spends whining about Arizona’s law and meddling in the internal affairs of the U.S., he might finally do something good for his own people.
