"Bypassing the sucking, hopeless, sinkhole that is the U.S. Congress, Obama announced a new immigration policy, one that invokes an old, and therefore legal, power: He is taking 'deferred action' on whether to proceed against hundreds of thousands of people who came to this country illegally."
"It is not permanent. He, or any other president, can revoke it. And therein lies part of the brilliance..."
"The choice for Hispanic voters is now simple: Vote for Obama and you are guaranteed a humane immigration policy for your children, relatives, friends, neighbors and fellow Hispanics for the next four years. Vote for Romney and you get the uncertainty of which 'setting' he chooses to take."

….will be markedly different than under the benevolent rule of President Obama for some:
That sounds about right to me. How Romney can manage a xenophobic base better that George W Bush could is beyond me. Bush tried some outreach on immigration reform but retreated after the backlash from the Base.
I guess if the Foxnews and the AM Radio starts cranking out the propaganda to the unwashed teabagging masses, a President Willard could have a shot at civilizing the masses, but this seems a little early in the game to me. In order to civilize the masses, the political scientists tell us that they first must come to know despair. Deeply. Intimately.
A Willard victory in November would lead to anguish for many folks, but I suspect only a few wingers will share this despondency. Likely a Willard victory will leave the unwashed masses less willing to compromise on matters such as immigration.
