Obama and the drug war

This is why I don’t express very much interest in the Presidential campaign.

When I am President, we will continue the Andean Counter-Drug Program, and update it to meet evolving challenges. […]
Mexican drug cartels are terrorizing cities and towns. President Calderon was right to say that enough is enough. We must support Mexico‰s effort to crack down. […]
And we‰ll tie our support to clear benchmarks for drug seizures, corruption prosecutions, crime reduction, and kingpins busted. […]
We need tougher border security, and a renewed focus on busting up gangs and traffickers crossing our border. […]
And we‰ll crack down on the demand for drugs in our own communities, and restore funding for drug task forces and the COPS program.

Just great.
Change will not come from the top. It will only come from the bottom.
