Romney implies cultural shortcomings to blame for Mexico and Ecuador’s economic issues. Click here for a link to the story.

Stephen A. Nuño, a political scientist at Northern Arizona University and NBC Latino contributor, says Romney’s comments abroad show that he is a “believer in tribalism reaffirmed by American firepower, ” according to Nuño.

“The only “culture” that is inherently damaging to Mexico is the US’s culture of insatiable thirst for drugs and cheap labor,” Nuño states, adding ”Mexico certainly has it problems, but you can’t understand Mexico’s problems without understanding the role we play in them.”
