Just now. President Obama in his Mexico City press conference with Mexican President Calderone:

A demand for drugs in the United States is what’s keeping these cartels in business.

Uh-oh. The guy clearly just can’t control himself. He’s got nothing but bad stuff to say about the U.S. as soon as he slips across the border. I mean, that’s…like, unpatriotic, right? 

Or maybe, as EJ Dionne argues here, he’s just demonstrating a refreshing honesty to a world that, over the past eight years, became inured to an American President who elided the truth. That is so radical.
