Getting Into Shape For The Election
A reversal of policy like this has to have come from either Holder or Obama. And it hasto be motivated by the fact that November 6, 2012, is less than 400 days away. It’s bad policy (leaning on the landlords is particularly not endearing to me) and a waste of resources (aren’t there any terrorists to detect?), but I can only presume it’s good politics in the places the President wants to keep in his column next year.
