    White House: Obama to Delay Immigration Action

    ....until after the election.

    Expect the last two years of this guys' tenure to be the bitterest No Clinton capable of reaching across the aisle, he.


    Abandoning his pledge to act by the end of summer, President Barack Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections, White House officials said.

    The move instantly infuriated immigration advocates while offering relief to some vulnerable Democrats in tough Senate re-election contests.

    Two White House officials said Obama concluded that circumventing Congress through executive actions on immigration during the campaign would politicize the issue and hurt future efforts to pass a broad overhaul....


    Wait. And they think that won't happen after the elections?

    Those two "bitterest" years will be the ticket to Democratic landslides in 2016. The absolute best thing that can happen to Obama and the Congress is for the GOP to take the Senate this year and then go absolutely bonkers with every crackpot extremist right wing wet dream being enacted into passed bills that Obama can stand proudly before the nation and loudly VETO proclaiming himself as the last line of rational defense against dangerous extremists.

    You could not ask for a better formula for Democratic success in 2016.

    I wish I could tag this so it can easily be brought back out to view in November of 2016. I have a feeling it might result in absolute hilarity all around.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Please do. Of course my prediction centers around one key and all important variable: that Obama will grow a pair and turn into the battling, scrapping, fighting defender of the people..... something that he has been rather reluctant to do during the first 5.7 years of his presidency.

    The key to your prediction coming true might be a different variable. That is that he holds the line on what a broad majority deem crucial. If he continues to play the war on (pick your interest group) he will continue to be seen as just another cheap pol.

    After two terms of Bush, I had felt that dems would control the WH for a generation. Then we get Obama, and it all pissed away.

    Either way the election goes, it will result in hilarity.

    What, "wet dreams", are you referring to?
