Obama's craven delay on immigration [Editorial]

Want to know what average Americans think of a president who makes decisions based on politics and not what he actually believes in? President Barack Obama should rent a copy of "The American President" with friends and listen to the cheers when President Andrew Shepherd as played by Michael Douglas finally figures out to stop paying attention to polls and start doing what's right and back the environmental legislation supported by his girlfriend, played by Annette Bening. President Obama's recent decision to delay executive action on immigration reform is much like President Shepherd's initial endorsement of a "crime bill" in the movie to help his re-election bid - it's a cave-in to certain Democrats running in competitive Senate races.
