Both political parties are in a state of high anxiety about the possibility that President Obama will allow millions of illegal immigrants to remain in the country, fearing that White House action on the issue could change the course of November’s midterm elections.
In the past few days, Democratic candidates in nearly every closely fought Senate race have criticized the idea of aggressive action by Obama. Some strategists say privately that it would signal that he has written off the Democrats’ prospects for retaining control of the chamber, deciding to focus on securing his legacy instead.
He doesn’t care. Obamacare cost the Democrats the House in 2010, and unconstitutional scamnesty will cost them the Senate in 2014. And you know what? The Gentry GOP won’t do a damned thing to try to roll back those executive orders even when it does control 2/3 of the government.
