If what Hillary Clinton told the Ecuador media is true, that Obama’s Justice Dept. will sue Arizona over its immigration law, then November will be a political bloodbath wonderful to behold.
Why do I assert that with such confidence? First, a majority of Americans and Arizonians support Arizona’s immigration law. Obama might as well sue them. And illegal immigration is the sort of issue that gets people angry and voting. Heck, up to 40% (including yours truly) are of a mind to boycott those who boycott Arizona. That’s a lot of anger out there. You can imagine what they would think of Obama suing Arizona. Second, a lawsuit would educate and/or remind people of the Obama Left’s contempt for democracy and the rule of law.
And, of course, things already look bad for the Democrats. If Obama flips off the American people with a lawsuit, it will turn out downright Biblical.
As much as I would detest a lawsuit against Arizona, the political fallout makes me furtively hope Obama brings it on. But, even after Hillary’s remarks, I doubt it happens before November. Surely someone in the White House has a clue how self-destructive that would be.
