In Obama's parallel universe, unemployment is down, business is booming and the borders are secure.

In case you missed this little gem over the long weekend, let’s catch up.

Our esteemed president decided to speak about comprehensive immigration reform, which is Spanish for “amnesty.”

Unbeknownst to Dear Leader, a massive shootout was going on near the Arizona border at the same time he was telling the American people that “The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.”

FOX News has the ironic info:

A massive gun battle between rival drug and migrant trafficking gangs near the U.S. border Thursday left 21 people dead and at least six others wounded, prosecutors said.

The fire fight occurred in a sparsely populated area about 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the Arizona border, near the city of Nogales, that is considered a prime corridor for immigrant and drug smuggling.

The Sonora state Attorney General’s Office said in a statement that nine people were captured by police at the scene of the shootings, six of whom had been wounded in the confrontation. Eight vehicles and seven weapons were also seized.

All of the victims were believed to be members of the gangs.

The shootings occurred near a dirt road between the hamlets of Tubutama and Saric, in an area often used by traffickers.

Fact is, we don’t know if the story is referring to drug traffickers or human traffickers. But does it really matter?

Of course Obama is not omnipresent nor omniscient so he wouldn’t know that around the same time of his speech this incident was happening. The problem is that even if this incident hadn’t happened this statement by Obamy is not accurate. Besides a lot of the reasons why in many areas where the violence has gone down is because of the economy not because of The One’s presence in the White House.

I like Janet Napalitano’s white house amnesia, just because she isn’t there she thinks the problem has gone too. How can they be so blind and irresponsible? truly sickening

They say what they want with no sense of responsibility. The lame-stream media won’t call in to question anything these nit wits say. Whether he’s that clueless or that much of a liar, it’s a danger to this country.

Didn’t that JACKASS Stark just say last week that the border was safer than ever? And didn’t he accuse a Minuteman of being a murderer?

Someone should call his office and ask him about this innocent gun battle….
