    To me, his statement could easily become 'truthful' if we say, taxed all remittances sent to mexico (say 30%), AND CUT off the bloody millions we send them yearly in foreign aid..

    Unfortunately, we all know that's not what the President meant when he said it.

    It's like saying "I'm gonna pay cash for that $40,000 car. Then I get a loan for it, and take $400 a month in cash to the bank to pay for it. Technically, I paid cash, but it obviously wasn't the intent of the statement.
