Yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden took the unusual diplomatic step of apologizing to the Mexican government because people in the United States believe that laws matter.
While speaking alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, the veep said that he feels “almost obliged to apologize for some of what my political colleagues have said” citing “a lot of damaging and incredibly inaccurate rhetoric.”
Strangely enough, Biden didn’t cite any of that “inaccurate rhetoric.”
Maybe because it’s not inaccurate?
Here’s what else he said: “I just want you to know, Mr. President, that the most heated rhetoric you’ve heard from some of the competitors for the nomination for president is not who we are as the American people. It is not a view that is the view of the majority of the American people.”
Whoa! What’s that “heated rhetoric” he’s talking about? The idea that border security might have prevented Kate Steinle’s death? The notion that people should follow due process to get into the country rather than entering illegally? Or maybe that we should make it a wee bit more difficult to bring drugs in across our southern border?
Of course, it’s possible that he’s condemning his own Democratic party and the Obama administration for punishing sanctuary cities that harbor illegal immigrants.
Sadly, Slow Joe didn’t elaborate.
Maybe some aspiring journalist will ask him for further explanation.
