Who Has Been Most Lied To By President Obama?

If there is one constituency of the Democrat base that should be the most upset with president Obama it is liberal Hispanics.  The president has promised them numerous times that he would deliver on immigration reform. 

Of course, when president Obama says immigration reform, that is Obama code speak meaning amnesty for illegal immigrants.

How many times has the president guaranteed but not delivered immigration reform to Hispanic [liberal] groups and media?

Let us count the ways [lies]:

* In 2008, there is one campaign issue that candidate Barack Obama made, immigration reform, that he guaranteed to Hispanic groups to deliver by the end of his first year in office. [note: he had a Democrat house and senate to work with]

Promise made, promise not delivered.

* In 2009, with it being obvious immigration reform wouldn't be done by the end of his first year, president Obama promised that he would get it done in 2010. [note: again he had a Democrat house and senate to work with]

Promise made, promise not delivered.

* With the midterm elections nearing in 2010 and it obvious that immigration reform would not happen before the elections, President Obama made a lock solid guarantee that he would get immigration reform done by the end of his first term.

Promise made, promise not delivered.

Amazingly, with all the promises made by the president that he would get immigration reform done in his first year and certainly first term, he made this bald-faced lie on Latino-Fox News:  "President Barack Obama said Thursday in an exclusive interview with Agencia Efe, Spain's international news agency, that he had not promised to complete his entire 2008 campaign agenda, including immigration reform, during his first term but rather had said that he would begin working on it."

* In late 2012, with the president up for re-election and with it being obvious that he would not get immigration reform done by the end of his first term, president Obama guaranteed that this time, for real, if you re-elected him in November, "I'll get immigration reform done next year".

Promise made, promise not delivered.

* Early in 2014, after president Obama failed again to get immigration reform [amnesty] for illegal immigrants in 2013, he told Hispanics and the nation that he had a pen and a phone, and because of inaction by House Republicans  he was going to use executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.  But in my article: "Will illegal immigration be the pick six play against the Democrats.?" I noted:  "But in the interview president Obama had this last Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" with Chuck Todd, the president admitted that he would not take the action he had so promised until after the November elections.  He tried to use the excuse that he wasn't taking the action yet because he needed to inform the public better on the immigration issue.  This is Obama speak for:  "I can't take the action now because the American people are against it and it will hurt the Democrats chance of holding on to the senate if I grant this amnesty against the will of the people." 

So, again we have yet another:

Promise made, promise not delivered.

I've got a bridge I want to sell you, and you can
get to it with this used car I want to sell you.
So, I have this one question I would ask those liberal Hispanic Americans who have overwhelmingly supported president Barack Obama and have done so because of his promise on illegal immigration reform:  Do you believe in the modified adage:  "Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me five times, shame on me?"
