WATCH: White House Admits Obama Delayed Executive Amnesty So Republicans Couldn’t Campaign On It

Moments after he gave a lousy speech on the gruesome beheading of American journalist James Foley, Barack Obama went to play a game of golf. When asked about that callous decision, Obama said he “should’ve anticipated the optics.” This instance was further proof that Obama views absolutely everything through the prism of politics. It was also proof that he and his team of dummies, are a bunch of bumbling idiots.

More proof came today when White House press secretary Josh Earnest flat-out admitted that President Obama decided to delay his long-promised executive action on amnesty for illegal immigrants, in order to prevent Republicans from campaigning on the issue in the run up to the midterm elections.

“The fact is or I guess, the concern,” Josh Earnest said, “is that had the president moved forward with his plan prior to election day, you would have seen Republican candidates do more to make the immigration issue central to their campaign.”

“And in the event that they were successful in their campaign, the concern would be that they would cite their opposition to immigration reform as a reason to their success. That is not a storyline that the president, or that anybody here, wanted to contribute to.”

When Obama was asked in September if politics was behind his decision to delay his executive amnesty, he said “That’s not the reason.” His claim was, however, that he wanted his unconstitutional action on immigration to be more “sustainable.” I’m sure that was a well poll tested phrase.

Calling Obama’s bluff then was Florida’s Republican Sen. Marco Rubio. “It’s definitely politics,” Sen. Rubio said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “He doesn’t want to be held accountable by the electorate in the mid-term elections for an action that he knows is unpopular.”

And the polls are showing that Latino voters are starting to turn their backs on Obama over his failure to take action on immigration.

The midterm elections are now just 27 days aways.
