Mexico's president-elect to meet with Obama

(CNN) - Mexico's new leader has a message for U.S. officials as he heads to Washington this week: Ties between the neighboring nations must go beyond the drug war.

Just four days before his inauguration, Mexican President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto will meet with U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday. And he says he wants to reshuffle the list of priorities the United States and Mexico share.

    well – regarding the drug war – maybe there is something in the fact that obama and this guy wants to talk – to be perfectly honest, the government should take the "criminal element" out of it – treat it like they done in the days of prohibition – in other words tax it – think about it for a minute – if Liquor was still outlawed , you would see people buying moonshine along roadways / wal-mart parking lots, not to mention every other parking lot, or back alley or wherever – Now, since we've become more civilized, we purchase alcohol in stores, such as krogers & etc – I guess one of these days this thing about legalizing other stuff – will end up being the norm.

  2. just sayin

    he must be really ticked. the economy in the usa has been so bad for so long with obama that all his countrymen are going back home and they are losing billions in money being sent back. i mean what more can we do for these people. we've given away our country to them. what more do they want?! do they want to annex the usa?
