Obama To Hispanics: Hey, I Only Have So Much I Can Do Every Term, And In The First Term, I Was Busy Paying Off Unions and Trees

But I'll get to that amnesty I promised you in my next five years.

I just had to keep a more important promise to a more important constituency first -- the Mighty Sequoias, the Humble Periwinkles.

But once I get done keeping my promises to birds and deer-mice, I swear I'll get to you (sneer) humans.

In an interview with Univision, a seemingly confident Obama said hell have more time to work on hot-button issues like immigration in his next term.

Well, first of all my presidency is not over, Obama, who just a few months ago described himself as an underdog in the presidential race, said in a telephone interview.

Ive got another five years coming up. Were going to get this done, he said.

I would have only broken my promise if I hadnt tried, he said. But ultimately, Im one man. You know, we live in a democracy. We dont live in a monarchy. Im not the king. Im the president. And so, I can only implement those laws that are passed through Congress.

Captain Ed notes that Obama had 60 senators plus the house in his first two years but, doggonit!!!, he just couldn't get to mass amnesty then.

He's only one man, you know.

I'm Only One Man

These oceans ain't gonna lower themselves.
