Before leaving for his vacation on Martha's Vineyard, Barack Obama said the next big item on his legislative agenda -- well, after health care, cap and trade, and maybe labor's bill to effectively abolish secret ballots in union elections -- was immigration reform. What he has in mind, apparently, is something like the comprehensive immigration bills that foundered in the House in 2006 and in the Senate in 2007. These featured guest-worker and enforcement provisions, as well as a path to legalization.Why would you throw more fuel on the fire and get even more Tea Party Protesters out into the street by trying again to inflict immigration amnesty onto America during a recession? Not smart at all.

I thought Obama was supposed to be all Harvard-y smart? Because the opening paragraph of this article here looks pretty dumb to me.
