Why did Obama wait years to act?

Tuesday’s paper was lying on the kitchen table, opened to the editorial page. After I scanned the letters, the last paragraph of Mr. Robinson’s column caught my eye. (Eugene Robinson, “Did Romney deport all his real views?”)

Referring to that paragraph, I must say it’s never tiresome reading Mr. Robinson’s opinion. Usually the headline and the first few sentences are adequate to tell me everything I need to know about the hundreds of words that follow.

“Predictably,” Mr. Robinson was critical of Mr. Romney’s being critical of President Obama’s executive order. If Mr. Robinson could pause from his “meaningless blather” for a moment, would he be willing to explain how a Democratic president who had a super-majority in both houses of Congress couldn’t pass a real immigration reform plan in two years?
