The president's long-anticipated executive action to unilaterally afford temporary legal status to between five and eight million adult illegal immigrants may be pushed off until after the 2014 midterm elections, according to several reports. Appearing on MSNBC yesterday, veteran journalist Jim Warren called the plan "off the table through the elections," presumably in reference to a New York Times story published over the weekend:

President Obama is considering a delay of his most controversial proposals to revamp immigration laws through executive action until after the midterm elections in November, mindful of the electoral peril for Democratic Senate candidates, according to allies of the administration who have knowledge of White House deliberations. The president vowed in late June to act unilaterally, declaring a deep frustration with what he termed Republican obstruction in Congress. He pledged to act to reshape the immigration system soon after he received recommendations from senior advisers at the end of the summer. But now Mr. Obama and his aides appear to be stepping back from a firm commitment to that timing, a move that could draw fire from immigration advocacy groups who are expecting decisive action soon.

Obama must have fingered his way into the blue balls book of drippings. Ignoring everything else going on in the world to only say that this pathetic economy is in his eyes better than it was in 2008.
What else is going on in the world??? Surely you don't expect them to give two hoots and a holler about 2 measly Americans being murdered? What does it matter anyway?? The only way it would matter is if those 2 were black Americans and I don't think even ISIS is stupid enough to do that. Wonder how everyone will react when they behead the female aid worker they are holding??? talk about a war on women......

And those are minimum wage jobs STUPID!
Are you really that stupid? Or just pretending?
We all know that you are old, and you grew up in a different era. Do you really think that all of those minimum wage jobs are a good thing?
Have you been to a MacDonnald's lately?
It used to be a place where school kids worked. Now under Obama's economy. it is where adults work trying to make a living and raise a family work.
Can you see the difference?
I doubt it.

No clearer sign of today's defeated liberal mindset could be illustrated than what we've seen on GR Topix. They can't defend the administration they were stupid enough to have elected twice, but they're too ignorant, stubborn and cowardly to admit it. Instead, all that's left is a petty hypocrite posting flawed AP spin and running away.

The "liberals" have taken their balls and gone home.

Even to take it at face value. Six months out of how many months? And how many recovery summers? Pathetic, and a National Debt that keeps climbing. About twice that of all presidents combined. Lol
This do-nothing street organizer habitually voted "present" in his congressional era. His college transcripts are hidden. No one recalls his constitutional teachings. He didn't even write his own books for pete's sake! He certainly didn't write his own health reform legislation. It's highly questionable whether he ever even read it!

He's done nothing but make one anti-businesses speech after another, inflamed racial tensions, and changed his mind on gay rights. He hasn't closed GITMO. He hasn't reduced the debt. He hasn't addressed immigration reform. He hasn't strengthened world opinion on America. He hasn't ended anything in the Middle East.

The radical snake oil salesman has stood by and golfed while Americans have labored through an artificially lengthened recession, or died in poorly-advised overseas "police contingencies".

What would give anyone any indication that he would do more than play act the role of president now?

Goes right hand in hand with this article...you must be really proud...
http://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2014/0...
As they continue to hire more and more part time workers who are now having to work 2 or 3 jobs to make ends meet, the factory output will continue to go up...all on the backs of the American labor force. No insurance, no benefits, no vacation pay, no sick pay, no nothing...just a minimum wage and no chance of advancement.
Why can't you realize the glory of what you are being told is being driven by untold hardships being endured by Americans trying to make a decent living?

yeah, if the growth was actual growth and not part time jobs to avoid the debacle known as the ACA. Of course, someone who takes great joy in reporting fictional numbers won't care about his fellow Americans who have to work 2 and 3 part time jobs. SMH

Yeah,... but in 2016, they will get Hillary elected as our next president, and we will be in the same boat. Benghazi is "ancient history" and "what does it matter" Hillary will get elected by the same morons who put Obama in there, and nothing will change.
Did you know Hillary is a woman?(evidently Bill didn't, hence the whole Monica thing)

Don't discount the republitards' ability to snatch defeat out of the hands of victory!

My guess is the media has been at the door of every republican congressman, trying their best to bait them into saying something inflammatory so they can do their famous "hands-in-the-air outrage" routine again.

Knowing this bunch of flapping gaffe machines they'll eventually get what they want, and if they don't, they'll just make something up.

They are good at making things up. Then the little Poledancers of America soak it up like a sponge.
