"Today our immigration system is broken and everybody knows it," Obama said. "It's been this way for decades and for decades we haven't done much about it."
For decades, lame duck presidency persisted. Meaning time-out for any impact. I thought about this and tried find how is it possible that two years could be so lame-duck! Then, I found out that it will always, always be possible when there are preys. The opposition congress sees the president and helpless electorate as preys. So, if you take out the preys, then, you end the lame-duck season.
President Obama, tried to be decisive again, and searched for the preys to take out. But, in the process, he set a new tone that will be referenced for many decades to come. The Immigration Amnesty Package, is, indeed, a new game-changer in Washington D.C.
Obama’s step has ‘bold’ quadruple triggers:
- Turn Congress into a lame-duck parliament.
- Expunge mid-term elections’ impact;
- End lame-duck presidential syndrome;
- Rally foot-soldiers for Hillary Clinton or any other 2016 democratic Hopeful.
Obama sort of “TEER” down the Congress, to reposition democrats disaffected by the mid-term break-down.
I watched him on television with decisive steps from inside the White House to push the Republican congress into a tiny hole. They are there now, because, nature abhors vacuum. It seems historic that the lame-duck Congress will find no hotter preys than immigrants! The question is: What is Obama going to do next finally keep his fellow slow-changer democrats and Republicans in Congress out of the way to uplift those totally left behind in America. Millions of Americans are still left behind.
What can we make of a lame-duck Congress? A congress now distracted by 2016. A body that will be busy trying to get out of a hole for the next election circle? Where will the no-vote protest come from? What do you think? Can some bold players in the Congress raise their heads above water and get something moving? Or was everything dependent upon the preys – the undocumented immigrants so-called? Which way Washington DC?
