Is he saving it for the last days?
No, he's not keeping his promise. And he was confronted on that today at a Univision forum. Nancy Cordes (CBS News -- link is text and video) reports that he tried to offer excuses but was stopped:
"A promise is a promise," said a Univision interviewer, "and with all due respect, but you didn't keep that promise."
"Well, here's what I would say is that," the president responded, "and we've had this conversation before. There's the thinking that the president is somebody who is all powerful and can get everything done. We have to have cooperation from all these sources in order to get something done."
Good. He needs to be confronted on that broken promise. Why anyone would ever trust him on immigration again is beyond me.
Also being reported by CBS News, the arrest of a music artist I really like:
Fiona Apple was arrested at a border stop in Sierra Blanca, Texas, on Wednesday after police say they found hashish on her tour bus.
Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office confirmed the "Criminal" singer's arrest to CBSNews.com.
Apple spent Wednesday night in the county jail and was released Thursday on a $10,000 bond, according to The Associated Press.
TMZ first reported the news, noting that police stopped Apple's bus for an inspection, when they claim they found a small amount of marijuana, as well as hash, a strong form of cannabis. Police say a Border Patrol drug-sniffing dog detected marijuana on her bus.
Poor Fiona. I really think we need to legalize pot and do so immediately. I think a lot of people would be better off and our police force could deal with serious crimes and not waste time on recreational users of pot who do not harm anyone.
