President Obama and a Latino Dream Team

The President Obama playbook is a joke t this point. When he does not get his way or no one is listening he reaction is to drown everyone in an all star team. So it no surprise when his immigration overhaul stalled, the play is to enlist an array of voices, including Latino entertainment and media stars, to help jump-start legislation. The timing is because we need votes the crucial Hispanic voters are needed. The problem is they may feel he abandoned his campaign pledge to change the law with an immigration overhaul. The Latino community cannot be happy with the record number of 393,000 deportations and an impasse on revamping immigration laws, as well as President Obama being no help in stopping the tough state immigration laws like the one that passed in Arizona. In comes the dream team but instead of winning the game the idea is be cheerleaders and tell their people the President cares and is working hard. These people included Piolin Sotelo, Eva Longoria, America Ferrera, Don Francisco and Jose Diaz-Balart. President Obama sent the marching order to blame congress as we think President Bush was going to be hard to pin this one on. Congress failure to pass legislation that would have provided a path to legal status for law-abiding young people brought to the United States as children who either plan to attend college or join the military. You start to wonder if the puppet master is smarter than the puppets or if the puppets are just a pawn in a kings game.
