Charles Krauthammer tonight said he believes Barack Obama will now turn to a push on an Immigration Reform (aka “Amnesty”) bill because “he wins either way.” If he gets something passed, he gets millions of new voters for the Democrats, and if he does not, he will demonize Republicans for opposing it in the 2014 Midterm elections.
That’s about the size of it. Obama did the same thing in his first term. He did not even bring Immigration up while Democrats controlled the House, Senate and White House in 2009-2010. He could have rammed something through those two years if it was truly important to him. He just uses the issue to demagogue Republicans. That’s what he’ll try to do again.
