The Daily Beast has an interesting piece by John M. Ackerman entitled "Obama's Broken Promise to Mexico." Ackerman writes of how President Obama is becoming a disappointment to many Mexicans. Here is an excerpt: "He has failed to control the sale of assault weapons or stop their flow across the border. Drug consumption remains obscenely high in the U.S. The president has not given immigration reform the priority it deserves. He has not even dared to challenge the discriminatory Arizona legislation in the courts. Meanwhile, Obama and Calderón toast with elegant crystal wine glasses, share their `dreams' for the future and boogie down to Beyoncé." Tough talk indeed!
