When it comes from President Obama:
Where to even begin here? He makes out like he spent his first year or two in office working to fix the economy when he was actually consumed with passing his unpopular health care bill. He could’ve spent that time on immigration. He didn’t.
But also — if the whole reason for breaking the immigration promise was that the financial crisis intervened on his plans, which is how he begins his answer here, funny how he never mentioned that in the 2008 campaign. The financial crisis hit in mid-September 2008. That left a full month-and-a-half of the fall campaign, including three presidential debates, for Obama to start qualifying some of his promises. He didn’t.
Instead he went on making promises, saying he’d go line by line through the federal budget looking for ways to cut spending, and saying his budget would include a net spending decrease. Broken promises. And best of all, he told Univision he realizes now that change can’t come from inside Washington. Well, as I heard Guy Benson mention on Hugh Hewitt’s Thursday show, his whole freakin’ campaign was about change. That’s what he promised. That was the slogan. Now he’s admitting it was all poppy-cock.
