An undocumented ‘dreamer’ in NY sent Obama a question regarding the Dream Act. More to the point, he’s tired of Obama sitting on his hands waiting for some hot Latino girl to come dance with him to get the Dream Act passed:
Mr. President, I am an undocumented law graduate from New York City. I’m just writing to say that your message that you do not have a dance partner, it is not a message of hope. A real dancer goes out on the dancer floor and takes out his or her dance partner. You’re just waiting. You have the facts, numbers, dollars, and votes on the side of granting administrative relief for Dreamers. We are doing our part. It is time to do yours, Mr. President.
Obama wasn’t very happy with this, saying that he can’t just change the laws unilaterally and that it’s doing a great disservice to the cause of getting the Dream Act passed for people to get propagating this notion that he can do it by himself.
But I don’t think the person writing the statement to Obama expected him to do it unilaterally. I think they’ve probably seen Obama’s “pass the bill” campaign and probably wants him to stop hiding behind the fact that he doesn’t have a partner and get out there with his bully pulpit and find one. But of course, Obama translates that to ‘I can’t do it by myself so stop asking me to’.
Sounds like some of the dreamers still believe that Obama is a nightmare:
