Singing a different tune

September 7, 2001

PRESIDENT VICENTE FOX: Well, first, I respect the U.S. Congress; they have the final word, and the final decision, no doubt. We don't want to interfere on U.S. politics or U.S. mechanisms, so that's number one.

Now those of you who have read my recent posts like this one and this one know that Fox is now singing a different tune.

On September 7, 2001 I think that Fox was quite comfortable that the man in the White House, President Bush, was firmly on his side and that public opinion on this was relatively muted.

Fast forward to December 2005 and you have an entire country outraged over illegal immigration and it's devastating effects, private citizens willing to take up the call of the Minutemen and defend our border, and groups like OFIR who are willing to follow the Mexican Consulate around the state of Oregon to protest illegal aliens getting sham ID's and government services.

Not only is Fox now willing to "interfere" with U.S. politics and U.S. mechanisms, he has resorted to childish name calling and threats.

Bush really needs to respond to a foreign president trying to dictate our policies and making threats.

I really respect our president, and I wouldn't want to be in his boots any day of the week. But sometimes I just don't understand what he is doing.
