Pros and Cons


On the one hand, pretty frustrating to hear Speaker Boehner try to blame his caucus’s flat refusal to pass immigration reform or even bring it to a vote on President Obama’s purported unwillingness to “implement a law as it’s been passed.” On the other hand, heartening to remember that none of the constituencies who care about passing reform – liberals, Latinos, business, Democrats – are fooled by this for a moment.

Leaving the DC press corps, which is probably half fooled. But even them not much.
