President Barack Obama gets grilled by Univision’s infamously liberal newsman Jorge Ramos? Come again?
Yes, it happened. During Obama’s forum interview with Spanish-language television network Univision, host Jorge Ramos told the President that he “didn’t keep that promise,” referring to the campaign promise the President to enact a bipartisan reform of our immigration system.
Kudos to Ramos for sticking it to the President, as he has done to other prominent Republican legislators, most notably Senator Marco Rubio. Ramos has long been a vocal proponent for amnesty for illegal immigrants, and recently took on Senator Rubio on the issue.
“But it was a promise, Mr. President,” Univision reporter Jorge Ramos said. “This is very important, I don’t want it to get lost in translation. You promised that, and a promise is a promise and with all due respect, you didn’t keep that promise.” (The Blaze)

For the longest time, Rubio refused to go on Ramos’ ‘Al Punto’ Sunday morning show because he felt that Ramos would just use the opportunity to try to attack and humiliate him on his ‘pro-legal immigration’ position.
After a couple of scandals at Univision, including the ‘hit piece’ the network put out on him, Rubio finally agreed to talk to Ramos on camera to promote his autobiography.
Suffice to say, Obama lied and fumbled his whole way through the interview, as he lied about his administration’s involvement and coverup of the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, and he actually had the temerity to tell a college graduate that the best thing she could do to get a job in this economy was to get an education- something that she had obviously already accomplished.This Univision forum could pose a small problem for Obama, but it’s unknown how many Hispanic voters will break from Obama to vote for Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Most of the Hispanics that are in this country either legally or illegally support some form of a pathway to citizenship, and that is because most come from countries whose governments do not offer the same entitlements as the U.S., so they’re oftentimes eager to be supportive of a government that is all too willing to put them on the welfare rolls.
Expect Obama to make an even bigger push for the Hispanic vote, by sending out surrogates such as Eva Longoria, George Lopez, and even my fellow Colombian-American John Leguizamo, who is simply an ignorant hack who has no clue about what he’s saying. Let me say this, all of these ‘Latinos,’ Longora, Leguizamo, Lopez are an embarrassments to cause of Latinos who are seeking freedom in this country and did not come here to become wards of the state. Here’s a sample of Leguizamo’s rantings-

“Latin people for Republicans are like roaches for Raid,” he adds. “It doesn’t make sense. [Republicans are] not for us. You’re not for my values. We’re working class people mostly and blue collar. We’re your cops, we’re your firemen, we’re your carpenters and the things we need – we need to protect our unions, we need to protect our Medicare, we need to protect the working class person.” – John Leguizamo (CNN)
