Digby makes a good point.
It's interesting that in the wake of a blistering analysis of the administration's blind eye toward Latinos in the Washington Post, the president issues an executive order today allowing the DREAM kids to stay in country. In the article the president seemed befuddled by angry activists, saying, "I'm not a king" and telling them to go talk to congress. But it turns out the president does have some power, after all. Who knew?
