Chaos in Mexico! Leftists Block Vicente Fox from Speaking

Lopez Obrador promised to respect the outcome of Mexico’s presidential election several times before the vote –It’s even on Video HERE

…But since his loss he has ramped up the rhetoric. Today his Leftist followers blocked Vicente Fox from speaking to the Mexican Congress.

The situation in Mexico is looking very unstable and increasingly dangerous!


The Leftists won’t allow Vicente Fox to speak! (Sound familiar?)

Opposition lawmakers storm the stage of Congress to protest Mexico’s disputed July 2 elections moments before the scheduled arrival of Mexican President Vicente Fox in Mexico City, on Friday Sept. 1, 2006. President Fox turned in a written copy of his annual state-of-the nation report Friday, but refused to address a Congress occupied by leftist lawmakers who demanded he withdraw heavy security surrounding the building. It was the first time in history a Mexican president hasn’t given the annual address. (AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills)
