For John, BLUF: The President is being very evasive regarding immigration reform. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The President was on Meet the Press and provided new host Chuck Todd a chance to shine. Here is Professor Althouse on the interview.
The Professor has a fairly longish headline for her Blog Post:
257 words into his 393-word answer to Chuck Todd's question about delaying the executive action on immigration, President Obama says "and I'm being honest now."She follows that with:
Now, eh? That was telling!That is followed by a long dissection of the interview. And, there are comments. A couple of them are tasteless. Amongst the comments, this was my favorite:
If the President has the authority to make these changes he has had it for near on to six years, and yet has done nothing. That makes it sound like dereliction of duty.The only other point out of this whole mess is a consensus that Reporter Chuck Todd is no Tim Russert.
The only other explanation is that he lacks the authority, and knows it, and he is trying to run a bluff.
