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.

…until just after the mid-term elections. Very predictable.

I don’t even want to read what Obama told Todd.
He has such a way of twisting words and you won’t get the truth anyway! It seems obvious to me that he is waiting so the democrats don’t lose votes. Well I hope they still lose votes.
I hope the chickens come home to roost for Obama in November!

It won’t matter if the Dems lose the Senate, he’ll just use his pen and issue an EO and the GOP, once again, will sit there and do nothing.

President Obama will delay taking executive action on immigration until after the midterm elections, bowing to pressure from fellow Democrats who feared that acting now could doom his party’s chances this fall, White House officials said on Saturday.

It’s all a political game for Obama. It’s the almighty vote right now. Not the interest of the immigrant or the american citizen.

And now he can go play some more golf.
