Great expectations and failed actions

Mickey Kaus wonders if President Obama has himself in a box on immigration.
The problem is that Obama’s I’m-pissed-off theatrics“today, I’m beginning a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress”– and the euphoric reactions of Latino activists have raised expectations to such a high level that if Obama now goes “small” he might actually offend, disappoint and discourage some Latino voters in the midterms instead of mobilizing them.
Obama keeps betting Republicans will crack. But he faces few good options heading into the elections.
