Grapevine: Dangerous Border Town or Vacation Spot?

Mexican city's effort to draw tourists


And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

In Good Company?

The Occupy Wall Street movement is getting support from some out-of-the-mainstream groups. The American Nazi party is urging followers to get involved -- writing -- quote -- "Seriously people -- just who is our enemy? The unemployed left-wing 25-year-old holding up a sign, or the Judeo-capitalist banksters who swindled the American taxpayers out of a trillion dollars in the 'bailout' scam?"

The Socialist Party U.S.A. is also asking its supporters to stand with protesters, listing events and times in various cities.

And not to be outdone, Communist Party U.S.A. is telling members to be part of the movement at every level.

Occupy Wall Street has previously received praise from Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, and Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Fault Line

The American public is not so sure about who is at fault for the U.S. economy.

A survey in the Hill finds 56 percent of likely voters feel Washington is more to blame for the financial crisis and recession compared to 33 percent who say Wall Street is the problem.

Another Day in Paradise

Finally, Mexican border town Ciudad Juarez is probably not on the list of your top travel destinations but officials there want to change that.

The city is trying to draw crowds with a 16-day festival of concerts, ballet and speeches. The speaking list includes former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.

Organizers say the crime rate is down about 50 percent over the last six months. But, there have still been nearly 9,000 drug violence killings in that city since 2008.
