I cannot belieave how many latinos are thinking about voting for Obama. Couple of weeks ago two reporters from Univision, their names are, Gorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas, interviwed President Obama. They asked him specific questions and his specific answers were all BLAME the republicans. He took no resposibility for anything. He has been in power for four years, what has he done? When Bush left office there were thirty two milion welfare recipients. The national debt was at eight TRILLION dollars. In addition, we had two wars going on. Four years later there are fourty six million welfare reciepients and the national debt is at THIRTEEN TRILLION dollars and on top of this THERE ARE, CURRENTLY, NO WARS. Ilegal imigrant deportation is at an all time HIGH. NEVER in the history of the United States of America have so many people been deported. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT than make a decition on who to vote for. Obama gave latinos the dream act and OBAMACARE. Thats right he also gave us FIVE TRILLION MORE IN ...
Words to live by: "I am the eyes of the people watching me" Maria Elena Salinas
The president gave an hour-long interview to Univision anchors Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas at the University of Miami Thursday, fielding tough questions about immigration reform.
Univision’s Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas to Get Lifetime Achievement Emmy -
Reader Mail (obama): "I read your article concerning immigration, and am so sick and tired of hearing about this issue.. It seems to me that most all hispanic journalists talk about is immigration. I did not appreciate the fact that the first question Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos asked the President was about immigration. And then they made it a point to get after him for not taking up the issue in his first year in office. That is not the most important thing the Government is thinking about, you know. There are more important issues out there, like the economy and foreign affairs The only people who are always talking about immigration and making a big deal out of it are people who immigrated here, legal or illegal. People that were born here don't think that is the most important thing. And I don't appreciate the way you expressed yourself about the President. He is our President whether you like it or not. You must be a real, real Republican (de hueso colorado) to be talking like that a ...
President Obama speaks with Univision's Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas at University of Miami
There was only one acceptable response from President Obama when he was grilled over his immigration policies by Univision's Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas: âLo sientoâ (I'm sorry). Instead of going on the defensive and retreating into his usual fantasy world where he and his adm...
Isn't that what we should be doing!!? Kudos to Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos.
Univision’s anchor Maria Elena Salinas did some dishing about Mitt Romney and his appearance last week on the networks’ presidential candidate forums
after watching the Univision forums and the 60 minutes interviews, I vote for Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas to moderate the debates.
My fellow voters please read this article that I posted from Juan Gonzalez's column from the Daily News. If this is how he preceives latinos I can't even imagine how he preceives all other races. Mitt Romney went on the Univision Spanish-language network Wednesday, hoping to improve his dismal polling numbers among Hispanics — the fastest-growing segment of the country’s electorate. He did so only days after his now notorious “47%” tape was revealed. The tape where Romney told wealthy donor friends he’s already written off half of Americans — “those people,” he said, who pay no federal taxes and “believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.” In that tape, Romney also disparaged low-income immigrants and joked it would be easier to capture the White House if his grandparents had been Mexican. Juana Velez, who came to this country from the Dominican Republic 25 years ago, didn’t catch Romney on Univision. She was too busy doing her own clean up. Busy ...
Mitt Romney bused in audience members for a taping of an appearance on a Spanish-language network last week, muscling organizers at the last minute to ensure a supportive crowd. The Univision candidate forums held were intended to have audiences of students. But when the Ro …
Mitt Romney appeared on Univision Wednesday alongside Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas, but something was a little peculiar about his appearance -- his skin tone. Looking back at the hundreds of photos logging his every moment on the campaign trail, the Republican presidential nominee is usually not so shockingly tan. While his orangey-brown appearance on Univision could have been the result of bad lighting or a makeup mishap, left-wing blog the Democratic Underground concluded that Romney "dyed his face brown for his Univision interview." The claim is not completely out of the ballpark. After all, as Gawker points out, Romney did say "it would be helpful to be Latino," in a video secretly recorded at a campaign fundraiser earlier this year. Appearing at a campaign fundraiser in Atlanta, Georgia, before his Univision interview, Romney showed a bit more color, but nowhere near the amount of bronze as seen on stage at the 6:30 p.m. ET filming. If Romney did indeed alter his skin tone, it was likely done ...
well, lots of people want to know the referents between Obama and Romney. At the "UNIVISION FORUM" "both campaigns agreed to keep the audience comprised mostly of students, in keeping with the events' education theme." from the university of Miami however wen they could not find enough students to feel the studio Romney campaign threaten to reschedule the event if they where not allowed to bus in activist from around south Florida, so activist were brought in and they ignore request to hold applause. Maria Elena Salinas Univision forum moderator said "we were a little thrown because it was supposed be a TV show, it wasn't a rally... it was little bit of disrespect for us" then Romney almost cancel just minutes before the show because He was not happy with is introduction. Romney agreed at a 35 minutes show President Obama agreed at one hour. Romney was invited out but He never showed. One republican at the taping said Romney "threw a tantrum" refused to go on until the introduction was re taped. Presiden ...

Univision's Meet The Candidates forum at the University of Miami
The co-anchor of the influential Spanish-language channel Univision Network News, who helped grill President Barack Obama at a town hall, said Friday that she often asks Obama about comprehensive immigration reform, and lauded him for explaining why that policy hasn’t been successful yet. &ldq...
Immigration took center stage Thursday as Obama fielded questions in an online forum hosted by the Spanish-language Univision network.
Obama comment on Univision Co-host Maria Elena Salinas began the interview with a pointed question about anti-American protests in the Muslim world, including the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last week that resulted in the death of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Salinas asked if the administration should have been better prepared. Obama never really answered directly, and instead said that the protesters don’t represent all Muslims. He also noted the number of top-level al-Qaida members killed in Pakistan, and the terrorists being hunted elsewhere. But, Obama suggested, the “Arab spring” will have growing pains that the U.S. will monitor. “We cannot replace the tyranny of a dictator with the tyranny of a mob,” Obama said amid a long response that didn’t say much about the preparedness of the consulate or the U.S. Embassy in Cairo that was stormed on Sept. 11. Salinas then pressed Obama on whether the incident was a terrorist attack perpetuated by a ...

Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos of UNIVISION got an "EARFULL" of Presidential "Bull-Crap" - I can ONLY hope them can see thru all that SMOKE and MIRROR...B/S...!!! Maria Elena and Jorge had good questions..but what they got back...My God...!
Enlarge PhotoU.S. President Barack Obama takes … MIAMI, Fla. - President Obama today said his failure to push comprehensive immigration reform as promised was the biggest failure of his first term but blamed Republicans in Congress for the lack of progress. Seeeking to appeal to Latino voters at a Univision News forum, the president explained "when we talked about immigration reform in the first year, that's before the economy was on the verge of collapse, Lehman Brothers had collapsed, the stock market was collapsing, and so my first priority was making sure that we prevented us from going into a Great Depression." In 2008, then-candidate Obama told Univision's Jorge Ramos, who anchored today's event with Maria Elena Salinas, "what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I'm promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible." Today, Ramos repeatedly pressed Obama to acknowledge he had not kept that promise. "I don't wan ...
What the heck did he say? Should Eric Holder be fired? Well let me tell you, We need to stop guns and cash going into Mexico and drugs coming to the states. Let me be clear about this, if we make it political, it makes me look bad, so we don't want to do that. It actually spoils my golf game and when I go to drive the ball from the tee all I can think about is some cartel member firing an AK47 at an innocent civilian and my ball may go off the fairway. Therefore I try not to think about Fast and Furious while playing golf.

A Univision interviewer asked President Obama if it wasn't true that he had broken his campaign pledge to introduce a comprehensive immigration reform package early in his presidency. That was a place Obama wasn't willing to go.
