Vice President No

Two days ago I wrote about how Joe Biden announced that the administration did not have plans to end the Cuba embargo. Now he also says that there are no immediate plans for immigration reform, something that Central American leaders are very interested in (and they are particularly concerned about the number of deportations, which their economies cannot handle).

The overall theme of his Latin America trip has been "cooperation," and I've heard lots of pleasantries. However, the real message at the moment seems to be that the U.S. isn't planning on doing anything.

So I guess we shouldn't be too surprised that while the Obama administration talks nice and does nothing, the Argentine government decided to get Chinese help to shore up the peso.
