Obama Goes Skating on the Third Rail

Talk about tone-deaf.

The Obama administration will insist on measures to give legal status to an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants as it pushes early next year for legislation to overhaul the immigration system, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Friday.

...With unemployment surging over 10 percent and Congress wrestling with health care, advocates on all sides of the immigration debate had started to doubt that President Obama would keep to his pledge to take on the divisive issue of illegal immigration in the first months of 2010.

Unemployment is "above 10 percent", alright. It's somewhere between 10.5% and 19.5%, depending on which of BLS' measures you use.

I used to think that Obama would get re-elected. I'm not so sure any more.

Legalize an additional 12 million Democrat client voters, and it won't be a problem.
