Obama: We can’t waste time with ‘endless debate’ over immigration reform


Presidenting is all about action, baby! And nobody knows that better than Barack Obama. During his $1.6 million post-campaign campaign speech today, he stressed the importance of “moving forward” on Shamnesty:

Obama: If Congress fails, I will send up my own bill. . . #ooo
