The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reports on plans for President Obama’s second term. “Obama’s advisers say it is more likely that the President would champion an issue with greater bipartisan support, such as immigration reform.” No doubt the idea of immigration reform suggests itself to the president’s inner circle because the private sector is doing fine.
The article speculates on the foreign policy of a second Obama term, and quotes one advisor, Ben Rhodes,a speechwriter-deputy national security advisor, as asserting somewhat incoherently that “[a] lot of the threads of stories that we’ve begun-from Asia to the Arab Spring, to even Africa, to Middle East peace-the ability to complete the story in the second term will go a long way toward defining the legacy of the President.”
Immigration reform and more of the same foreign policy touch that has brought us Iran, Egypt, Libya, Syria and a bug-out from Iraq with one on the way in Afghanistan.
Lizza has the sources and relays their vision. Ask everyone you know to read it.
