I couldn't vote. The choices suck. In fact none of the choices were valid.
I'll help you zac.
1. Calderon is a two faced hypocrit neck deep in corruption and has no business judging anyone.
2. Because Mexico is the greatest source of illegals and drugs coming into this country Calderon is the last person who should trash any part of the USA.
3. Calderon if your going to talk smack about us then learn to speak the language first Be otch.

I didn't vote because there is no choice that lets me say that Calderone has no business telling us how to do things.
Yeah, I didn't vote either.

The choices are misleading and don't really embrace my feelings about the whole debacle.

This sort of sums things up very well, written by a hispanic.

Take the time to read the entire article, makes a lot of sense.

Count me as agreeing, too. To take it a step further, no one outside of the state of AZ has any business whining about its laws. If you don't like it, don't go there.

What exactly is upsetting to you about Calderno's speech?

Calderon is a corrupt president from a corrupt failed country whos immigration laws are 10 times more harsh than ours and he comes on our soil and disrespects us! That bum needs to go back to Mexico and not foul our country again. He should also take the anti-American Democrat congress and the traitor hussein obama with him.

Yah wonder how well it would go if one of our politicians addressed the Mexican government and tongue-lashed them on their laws.

Your poll choices are incomplete AND you should have provided a choice for "all of the above".

Calderon's piece of crap country is just that . . . AND they have an extremely strict set of immigration guidelines.

Therefore, he is a hypocrite in expecting America to not enforce its own (albeit weak) policies, when HIS country would never do such a thing.

As the leader of Mexico, he actively encourages his citizens to cross the border and violate the law.

What if Obama went to Mexico and admonished them for their immigration laws and demanded that they change?

Calderon should NEVER have been allowed to speak before Congress. His appearance there was a disgrace, but the REAL disgrace was in OUR government not only allowing it, but giving him a standing ovation.

Mexico is a cesspool . . . and the scum from that cesspool is leaking into America minute by minute, day by day, year by year, and there will come a time when America is barely recognizable anymore . . .

This will be an even filthier nation of taco stands and dilapidated buildings with peeling purple and pink paint and uncontrollable rates of heinous crimes and diseases. And all the bleeding heart liberals who have aided and abetted will be thrown under the bus AFTER they've served their purpose of being the "useful fools".

Calderon needs to stay the hell out of America and America's business.
