    I think the issue was gaining so much popularity that it had to be addressed. I think he should have waited a bit longer to let the GOP candidates have their say on it and then just show it. It would have hurt their credibility.

    Exactly. He would have been fine if he had continued to ignore the issue and treat it as invalid as it deserved to be treated. This only gave it validation. It gets so ****ing old.

    i still think it would be something for him to whip it out in a debate... I'd give him much credit for that move.

    We do have bigger issues, which is why he shouldn't have even acknowledged it. That's my entire point.

    The only reason it seemed to be gaining popularity is because Donald Trump made it seem like it was a bigger issue by even bringing it up in the first place. By mentioning it, he also gave it validation. Obama just sealed the deal.

    I would have given him more credit if he would have waited until the debate to even address the issue.

    I agree. I think that if he ignored it, then the issue could shoot him in the vote and if he addresses it he shoots himself in the foot. I would have rather him go with the maybe choice than the choice he did make. But the President does seem to cave to things, so I am not that surprised.
