The expression “too little too late” is banging around my head this morning.
It comes up when I think about President Obama’s speech last week on immigration combined with the US Justice Department suing Arizona over SB1070.
There’s this big and obvious push to make it look like Obama and the US government finally woke up.
But I truly believe that it is all about a focused and concentrated political strategy for the upcoming November elections.
Once again, undocumented immigrants and their families aren’t at the center of this issue.
As I’ve stated previously, Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) passing this year is about as likely as one of my cats standing on two legs and belting out a Lady Gaga song.
So why all of the sudden intensity?
Kids, it feels to me like an ex trying to win us back.
You know how it is. Once you’ve made the decision to walk away, the other person wakes up.
But it’s too little too late.
President Obama, you know that ring of hope that you placed on my finger on Election Night in 2008?
I just pawned it for some much-needed cash.
