Yesterday Obama said in his speech "how do we reclaim our Central American promise?" I don't remember any "central American promise" before.

The "central American promise" is not a "Central American promise." He was talking about core values, not Mexico.

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

It's just a pie in the sky talking point he throws into a speech every now and then.
"How do we reclaim that central American promise that no matter who you are, you can make it here if you try ..."


and it is central American promise, not Central American Promise, despite the dual playing cards in his speech (es).

Most immigrants do ( legal or otherwise) usually hope to have a bit better luck making it here, though, no ?

And FWIW, Mexico is not in "Central America"...it's in North America.

THIS is an example of Sam not being all there...

here is the quote in proper context:

"There are too many people out there who are struggling, too many folks out of work, too many homes that are still under water. Of course, we need to do better, the debate is not whether, it is how. How do we grow the economy faster? How do we create we create more jobs? How do we pay down our debt? How do we reclaim that central American promise that no matter who you are, you can make it here if you try.

Beg pardon. "Mexico" worked much better in the context than "Belize."

Not to mention that Mexico, the apparent basis of sams concern isn't a Central American Country. It's a North American country. That may be the real basis of her irritation.

I can't believe nobody caught that Mexico is not in central America, it's in North America!
