Hypothetical Question

Here’s a hypothetical question for you readers:

What would happen if the President of the United States went to a foreign nation and, during an address of that nation’s government, lectured that government on laws that The United States does not like, pressured that government to repeal that law, and, going one step further, insisted that that government passed a law that voilated that nation’s constitution in order to benefit the interests of the United States?

What would happen? What would that nation’s government do in response to such an event? How would the media, both in the United States and across the globe, react to such an event?

Well, guess what, something very similar to the scenario I just laid out did occur yesterday and is occurring again today. Only it is not happening in the halls of some foreign government, and the President of the United States is not the one doing the lecturing. It is happening in the halls of the United States Capitol, and the leader lecturing our government is Mexican President Felix Calderone.

You can read the whole story here, but the short version is that Calderone demanded that the United States overturn Arizona’s new immigration law, which he claims “criminalizes migration” and will severely damage Mexico’s economy, and he also demanded that Congress instate a new Assault Weapons Ban to help stop the Mexican Drug Cartels (despite overwhelming evidence that the vast majority of the Cartels’ weapons do not originate in the United States).

Say what you will about the situation down in Mexico, but ask yourself this: if the situation were reversed, if it was Obama doing this in Mexico City instead of Calderone doing this in Washington, what would the UN, EU, and mainstream media say?
