    Does anyone have a link to the transcript of the event referenced here:



    PolitiFact | The Obameter: Introduce a comprehensive immigration bill in the first year





    I thought I had heard/seen more of that interview than just that quote. And part of what I remember is that Obama was very explicit about how that wasn't just a campaign promise. He said he was very aware that people make promises to Latinos for votes and then don't carry through and he was explicit about how he was not going to be a politician like that. This was one promise he was for sure going to keep.


    Or at least that's what I remember. But my attempts to google for more of his actual words have failed. There are so many sites quoting just that one passage above. I have no idea how to filter them out and get to something more complete.

    Thanks. I'm coming up with the same filtering problems though. Not sure how to get to the quotation I want.


    I'm specially looking for where he said he was super serious about his promise - that he wasn't going to be one of the people who made promises like that just to get elected. A cross my heart hope to die moment.

    Which he transgressed of course.





    So I don't need just the promise itself, but an extended quotation where he underlined it and gave himself an extra layer of responsibility .....

    Lotta people quote the promise - but aren't giving the surrounding words.

    According to a transcript of the interview [headlined "An Advocate for Change"], Ramos said that in last year's interview Obama "made a comment that during his first year in office, he was going to sign a bill that would legalize undocumented immigrants."

    That is flatly false. But Ramos declared his determination to hold the president to account. He told the newspaper: "That is exactly what I'm trying to do right now, push as hard as I can, to make sure that he keeps his promise."

    Most Americans may not follow the Spanish-language networks, but their journalists are not at all bashful about pushing "as hard as they can" for their political aims.

    Candidates make all kind of promises until the are elected and then for some reason they fail to deliver. I do not believe Obama is serious about Immigration Reform or anything to do with immigration. I just belive he is making token attempts knowing in this economy it will fail.

    Obama has the mentality of a dictator! He makes promises that a dictator would make cause a dictator does not have nor need a congress to answer to.
