Last weekend President Barack Obama told African Americans to "Stop complainin'. Stop grumblin'. Stop cryin'." Today at a White House roundtable targeting Hispanic voters, the president did some complaining and grumbling of his own. Responding to questions about his failure to deliver the comprehensive immigration reform he promised, Mr. Obama said "This notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true."
So desperate was the president to, as usual, blame others for his failure that he almost complimented his favorite scapegoat, "Only a few years ago, you had some Republicans who recognized that we needed to fix our immigration system," he said, noting that his predecessor, George W. Bush, was a proponent of comprehensive immigration reform. "Right now you do not have that kind of leadership coming from the Republican party."
But the failure of leadership here is his. Over a year ago, immigration advocates who meet regularly with White House officials said the Obama administration had been considering several approaches to the problem including convening a summit meeting and putting forward its own bill. But the White House never settled on a course of action.

Obama still fails to lead....
The jackass was out today saying we don’t need 50 states implementing their own immigration laws. This guy is such a liar and misstater of fact to be dilusional. The states want to enforce the law of the US, not their individual laws. 3 card monte dealer was what he was, what he is and what he will be in the future, nothing more. Same thing about his constant lying about the tax rates...millionairs pay a lower income tax rate than janitors (or jews depending on the crowd he is addressing), is just a flat out bold face lie and he gets away with it.
” Obama still fails to lead....
The “Great Procrastinator” leads from behind the lines as he encourages others to mount the foot patrol and march.
It seems like he has to check the polls , the advisory boards, the blog boards , and see what position the NY Times /Wash Po have taken before he demonstrates any position on the matter.
Leadership ~ that’s a joke , right ??
“Obama still fails to lead....
Darn, beat me to it.
His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork.
Maybe not Barack Obama.
His aunt and uncle are taking the lead for him.
Obama when in doubt, blame, Bush..
That whole lack of any substantive experience thing just keeps coming back to bite him.
Guess the dimrat party and their media did a poor job looking into his background. Or was there another reason they picked him?
