Just a few weeks ago, a State of the Union call for immigration reform would have seemed an exercise in futility. But now, President Obama, who Tuesday night will urge the House to pass new legislation, might have at least an outside chance of getting what he wants.Yes, of course he will.
Does it strike you as odd that Congress always waits for our attention to become fixated on some of the other myriad HOLY SHIT THE WORLD IS GOING TO END! matters of importance before sneaking through the legislation they really wanted all along but knew damn good and well that the American public didn't.
I think it's a strategy, if you ask me.
