Dana Milbank - Obama's fatal flinch on immigration reform
Will he, wont he?
Does he even know what he promised to do in his first year?
Does he even care?

Air Force One was about seven miles over Appalachia this week when President Obama dropped a bomb on his party.
Senate Democrats had that very day circulated an immigration reform proposal, and the Associated Press, receiving a leaked copy, reported on the "draft legislation."
But as Obama returned to Washington from Illinois Wednesday night, he walked back to the press cabin on the presidential aircraft and, in an impromptu Q&A, essentially declared immigration reform dead. He said "there may not be an appetite" for it.)
Much like his decision on whether to go to Louisiana today or tomorrow, this guy seems to have gotten his priorities in somewhat of a tiswas.
His decision to backtrack was hastily copied by all the other wannabe Politicians.
Both Republican and Democrats seemed to vie each other for speed in which they stated Immigration reform was no longer a priority.
