President Barack Obama will make more empty promises to Latino people today as he discusses how he can keep control of congress by manipulating the Hispanic vote. Empty promises are nothing new to the nation’s first half-black all-Socialist President.

Many Faces of Barack Obama

First, he broke his word last year

Obama & The Latino Let-Down: No Immigration Reform Despite Promise!! 12/28/9 – “During an interview with Univision in May 2008, Obama continuously voiced his promise that made it sound like there would be immigration reform within the first year of his presidency if he was elected. He was elected with well over 50 percent of the Latino vote and his first year ends on January 20, 2010…“The chants of “¡Si se puede!” have died down” – Big surprise…another Obama broken promise.”

Then, from the Official Obama Administration Scandals List and the President’s “State of Obama” address…

2010 State of Obama # 13 – Immigration Reform & The Latino Let-Down 1/27/2010 – The President promised to “continue the work” on this issue. Continue the work? What work? Obama has been nothing but a Latino Let Down and did not live up to his promise to tackle immigration reform during the first year of his presidency. Words, just words. Obama’s words are hollow.

He’s like the hollow chocolate bunny you get at Easter. You thought you were voting for a great big piece of tasty chocolate. Oh the disappointment when you realize it’s hollow! (That’s good. I think I’ll write that down somewhere.)

— UPDATE 2/7/10: Miguel Perez says Obama is not being honest with Latino Americans and won’t get the immigration reform job done this year either! UPDATE 2/15/10: The Miami Herald saysthe GOP plans to capitalize on Obama’s Latino let-down. 

And then there was this

More Latino Let-Down: Obama Illegal Checker Software Works 46% of the Time! 2/26/2010 Fox News: “The system Congress and the Obama administration want employers to use to help curb illegal immigration is failing to catch more than half the number of unauthorized workers it checks, a research company has found. The online tool E-Verify, now used voluntarily by employers, wrongly clears illegal workers about 54 percent of the time, according to Westat, a research company that evaluated the system for the Homeland Security Department. E-Verify missed so many illegal workers mainly because it can’t detect identity fraud, Westat said. “Clearly it means it’s not doing it’s No. 1 job well enough…” — ConservativeAmerican.org feels this is probably a broken promise. No doubt the President assured his illegal voters that it wouldn’t work this good! 46% of the time, the amount this thing works, the illegals are not hired. His team is no doubt working hard to fix…er, uh, break this software!”

Just as the Jewish American voter is starting to realize that Obama and the Socialist-Democrat party are no longer on their side, it’s time the Hispanic American voter realize the same thing. And there is some hope. From our “Latino Let-Down” Post…

“We looked for a Latin American Obama voter and we found one. In a recent article in the UNLV Rebel Yell, Eva Rodriquez-Saenz wrote, “It was not long ago that Latinos voted overwhelmingly for President Barack Obama in hopes of attaining a greater presence in the minds and votes of legislators.”

“But,” she continued, “As the health care debate heats up, it seems unreasonable for the administration to make a solid move on immigration policy. The risk alienating some voters, as always, rears its ugly head in the campaign offices of the many politicians up for reelection in 2010. Latinos are not the only ones affected – every immigrant who continues to be victimized by a poorly structured immigration system is also being punished. Nonetheless, the largest group affected, without a doubt, is that of immigrants from Latin American.”

“The chants of “¡Si se puede!” have died down as fall approaches with no viable plan yet offered by the White House. There have been meetings where “leaders” of the community meet to offer their ideas on how immigration policy should be structured,but they walk away with empty promises once again. During an interview with Univision in May 2008, Obama continuously voiced his promise that made it sound like there would be immigration reform within the first year of his presidency if he was elected. He was elected with well over 50 percent of the Latino vote and his first year ends on January 20, 2010.”

“It is understandable that he would want to deal with other important domestic issues of concern, but this is beginning to sound like the song never ends. Each presidential candidate attends Latino-based events and gets interviewed by Univision and as soon as the Oval Office opens, all promises appear to be negotiable. “

With President Obama, words (just words) are merely a way to gain power and votes. Their substance means nothing.
