Default White house backtracks on immigration

Quote:
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs in the briefing just reiterated Shapiro's laments: “That story could have been written a year ago based off of what he's said on the campaign trail… I don't think [Obama] thinks it could be done this year.”

I think that it was a trial balloon. I have seen this pattern for most of the major issues this administration is planning to tackle. Take TARP for example...for a month one would just hear leaks about proposed solutions. Media would pick it up and give a reaction, the next leak would be an updated version based on the feedback. Such articles help keep the issue in the forefront, help gauge the reaction (both positive and negative) and provide a simple exit to backtrack incase of major opposition.

Well they are always saying they "want to start" discussions things can turn quick if they want to ... But the point is whether we "in" or are we "out" of discussions if we have atleast one point representation in those talks I think there would some help instead of asking all of us to go back and start process again, this is what 2007 CIR did and it would be if we do nothing... For me I have sent emails / calls when HR XYZA legislation of Lofgren was in discussions.. but those are small numbers and I wonder whether IV Core is doing something through their Lobbying channels... Surely its coming if not today during the tenure of President Obama.
