    We hold the worlds record for education funding, and yet half our people are on welfare.

    A third of our college graduates are from other countries.

    Mexico would only partner with us for financial gain.

    Almost without exception, every "partnership" that Obama has forged with another country has always been to their benefit, and almost always to our financial detriment.

    It would be nice if someone would take away his no-limit federal American Express card and make him start using cash instead.

    Let me guess...The partnership is as follows:

    Mexico sends the students and America provides the free education.

    This is a revision of the "Good Neighbor Policy" in an earlier time, we are the neighbors and they are the good. Do our United States of America students and their children get "free" medical care and citizenship in the United States of Mexico?

    Was this thought up while Arne Duncan and the President were playing basketball?

    He goes around the world stating how bad we are. What did he say about us in this process? Did they discuss gun programs and violence during this discussion? Did the Attorney General attend to discuss his part in the fast and furious program providing weapons of mass destruction to the Mexican populace to expand the need for medical care? Were the Governors of Arizona, California, and Texas there to discuss how much the federal government was going to take over from the states' rights to do this program? Education and medical care are not just federal programs. The President can't even enforce the laws on the books now. What will happen with the impact of this type of action? There are borders for a reason. He wants us to be nation without borders. He is king of all in new clothes.

    Hey big spender is there one minute a day that you do not think of spending our money?

    Here's how a U.S. Mexico "partnership" works:

    WE pay for it.

    THEY reap the benefits.

    How about a "partnership" where Mexico keeps its citizens, and we keep ours. How about a "partnership" where we stop educating, giving free health care, and incarcerating their criminals. How about a "partnership" where millions of U.S. dollars are not sent across the border to help their economy. How about a "partnership" where Mexico recognizes and respects our borders. I would like a lot of "partnerships" with Mexico, but this is not one of them.

    Would we not be better served to invest in our OWN students?
    Mr. Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg) tells us he has to go to China and India, bring students here, educate them at OUR universities and then give them green cards to work here. He's upset that we invest in their education and then deny them work visas.
    Well, how about spending money and effort to educate OUR citizens, make engineers out of them (the latest education buzzword is STEM) and give them high-paying jobs?
    Does Obama acknowledge the large numbers of college grads who are unemployed and underemployed?
    Is he insane to send money to Mexico to add to the competition?
    Or is he just pandering?

    We already have an education system with mexico, it's called educating millions of illegals for FREE! Enough. It is time to deport all illegals. It is time to demand mexico reclaim these illegals and STOP encouraging its people to come to America illegally. This is a joke of a policy between us and them. Mexico is a toilet of a country replete with political and police and military corruption. The president blamed the US for mexico's ills. Really? Mexican violence is our fault. Well, the demise of our public school system, our welfare system, our health care system, our driver licensees system are corrupt thanks to the 12 to 20 milllion, and counting, illegals abusing all of these systems.
