From a report at the first link below:
I know the president likes the sound of his own voice, but, really, what was the point of his immigration speech in Las Vegas? He didn’t deal with any of the hard issues — like guestworkers or spousal immigration rights for homosexual couples or how many millions more people a year he wants to admit — and just regurgitated the usual boilerplate about how we’re a nation of immigrants and our system is broken, etc.
The writer supects that Schumer called the White House and asked if they could please schedule a speech for Obama on immigration, then leak that, so he could tell his Republican co-conspirators that they had to hurry and beat Obama so they didn’t look like they were playing catch-up.
So, having announced there was going to be a speech, the Obama administration had to follow through, but they had nothing new to say so they just hit F11 on their keyboard for the stock amnesty speech.
Where were the environmentalists who should have been protesting that the Vegas immigration speech cost more than $500 per word?
Then again maybe the trip was to give Obama’s DC backers time to find a Camp David skeet shooting photo.
