WASHINGTON D.C. - President Obama and his Mexico counterpart talked today about their mutual war on drugs.

Obama said he and President Felipe Calderon have agreed to strengthen their cooperation in combating drug violence.

Obama praised Calderon for his "extraordinary courage" in fighting the cartels that have been responsible for deaths on both sides of the border.

"Tens of thousands of Mexicans, innocent citizens and dedicated security forces have lost their lives. I have reaffirmed to President Calderon that in this cause, Mexico has a full partner with the United States, because whether they live in Texas or Tijuana, our people have a right to be safe in their communities."

The presidents also declared a breakthrough in efforts to end a long-standing dispute over cross-border trucking.

Is this the same presidente Calderon, who met with OUR joint sessions of congress, and scolded us for being the reason for Mexicos problems? Get real Obama and the rest of the pinheads in Wash. Stop kissing ass/and supporting calderon for his failure to take care of problems in Mexico. Declare a no business zone all across the bordcer (from end to end), put Calderons feet to the fire, and see if he responds and really gets serious.

WHAT A HUMONGOUS PILE OF BULL! President Obama must be either drunk or really grew up in Kenya his entire life. The guy clearly knows nothing about our border region.
I agree that by making this public announcement of parnership it tells the cartels that Mexico has a big brother with a big gun that will use it if necessary. BUT THAT ONLY SCARES THE CARTELS THAT ARE NOT IN PRESIDENT CALDERON'S POCKETS.
The USA better be getting some rights to their oil, or something in return, for this BS.

LETS BE SINCERE ABOUT HOW MEXICO AFFECTS US.
1ST:12 MILLION UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS= NO JOBS FOR AMERICANS,WAGES ARE NEVER GONNA GO UP.
2ND:THINK OF ALL THE MONEY TAX PAYERS ARE PAYING TO KEEP DRUG TRAFFICKERS IN PRISONS,ALL THE MONEY THAT IS SPENT ON FEDERAL MANPOWER TO SECURE THE BORDER,THE MONEY THAT IS SPENT TO CLEAN UP THE TRASH THEY LEAVE BEHIND WHEN THEY COME ACROSS.
ETC, ETC.
A LOT OF US HAVE NO JOBS,NO HEALTH INSURANCE, SOMETIMES, NOT EVEN FOOD ON THE TABLE.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

A right to be safe in their communities? Calderon and the rest of the Mexican gov are corrupted and they are blowing smoke up your rear P. Obama. You are seriously being played for a fool.

Worry about your country men. Mexican citizens and its goverment allowed it to happen. Let them take care of it or let the U.N. step in.

Stop being like past leaders and sticking your nose in other peoples business. We have nothing to do with this anymore. Just protect the border and let them handle it
