Obama Calls for Halt to Convicted Rapist and Murderers execution to improve Public Relations with Mexico

Editors Note: Here is another example of President Obama speaking out on an issue when he should keep his mouth closed.  This is an issue for The Supreme Court to intervene if necessary,  based on the facts of the case not because the President has asked them to act.  The Texas Governor and the Supreme Court the potential intervening authorities in this case.

This is not the only time the President has interjected himself into Texas politics.  Every time he goes to the Border and ignores attempts at meeting with the Governor, Obama shows his elitism and his delusions that he is the all knowing authority.  He also has signed disaster declarations for every state recently, except Texas.
