The Dallas Morning News has a good editorial today calling on Pres BO to do something about immigration reform:
Obama may have a similar problem with his own party. The dirty little secret in the 2006 and 2007 immigration battles was that some Democrats were content to let Senate Republicans kill the effort. Labor-friendly Democrats didn’t want a bill, either.
And they may not want one this year. That reluctance is a major reason the president needs to invest in this fight. He must figure out how to bring enough Democrats along, while also reaching out to Republicans."
I'd love to share the paper's optimism.
In reality, "Hispanos" taught Pres BO & Dems an important lesson: "Keep giving "5 de Mayo" speeches, blaming Republicans and never proposing anything.....keep doing that and we will vote overwhelmingly for you"!
In other words, Pres BO does not fear the "Hispano" vote. He is convinced that "hispanos" will blindly get on the "si se puede" parade and vote for him.
Am I optimistic about a rational immigration reform? I am not because the Dem party opposes "work visas", a major ingredient in any immigration reform.
Put me down as a realist pessimist because Pres BO has no incentive to do anything about immigration reform as long as Hispanos keep drinking "el kool aid".
