President Obama says he will make a decision on immigration reform before January 1. This means that he has not made a decision.
He says he will review his options when the details are released to him. This means that his handlers have not yet released them.
He says that America is “a nation of immigrants.” (Example: Kenya.)
He thinks that the reform plans that will arrive on his desk will be ready to go. Plug and play. You know. Just like www.healthcare.gov was ready to go.
This is going to be the Keystone Kops.
Republicans in Congress will scream. Democratic voters in Congressmen’s districts are going to scream. Anyone who thinks that a majority of Democrats are in favor of amnesty is probably on the White House staff.
This is going to be the greatest show on earth. This is going to become center ring in Obama’s circus. This is going to be Obama vs. the big cats. This is going to be Obama on the high-wire. This is going to be Obama and 15 members of his staff in a little car.
Gridlock is coming.
There will be New York Times editorials on dysfunctional government in Washington. For liberals, “dysfunctional” means “limited.”
This will give new meaning to “lame duck President.”
