    Default Action delayed on immigration until after midterms

    Nope, not yet...

    Article headline:
    Obama: Waiting will make immigration executive action 'more sustainable'

    (CNN) -- President Barack Obama says he's postponing executive action on immigration until after November's elections because it would be "more sustainable" then.

    Speaking to NBC's Chuck Todd, Obama said the immigration debate was affected by concerns over the large number of unaccompanied children from Latin America flocking to the U.S. border.

    "The truth of the matter is that the politics did shift mid-summer because of that problem," he said.

    "What I'm saying is that I'm going to act because it's the right thing for the country," Obama said. "But it's going to be more sustainable and more effective if the public understands what the facts are on immigration, what we've done on unaccompanied children and why it's necessary."

    The decision to postpone means any political repercussions for trying to reform the immigration system by himselfwould come after the congressional midterm contests.

    Obama still "will do something before the end of the year" on the issue, a White House official told CNN on Saturday.

    I thought he had gone back to school so he could get a real job.

    Remember when leaders did something because they felt it was RIGHT and not because of the political implications? This is a clear and obvious move on the Obama Administration's part that PROVES that politics come before actually DOING SOMETHING their voters wanted to be done. In fact, they came right out and said they were postponing it because of the election. How low can you go. If you feel something is right, do it. If you are justified in it being right, people will respect you for it.

    People before politics is extinct.
    Pathetic.
