    the way a bit don't you think?  A few more pressing matters, but Republican Immigration fanaticism was high this year, like the bullsh*t in your posting. Give President Obama a fracking break, you troll!

      for comprehensive immigration reform within months of taking office. Yes, he made the promise after he was in the White House (thus, after the financial meltdown of '08); he even made the promise while acknowledging the financial crisis as having greater priority.

      So stop making excuses for Obama or waving the "financial crisis" card whenever he fails to follow through on campaign promises. The prez is a pretty good talker, so he can make his own excuses if he has to.

      What it really came down to was that Obama failed to act. There was plenty of analysis in the WH on how to move forward (including Obama submitting his own bill), there were lots of meetings with advocates, but nothing happened.
