Obama on amnesty: "Politically it's going to be tough"

“Nothing’s more powerful than radio in terms of reaching the grass roots,” he told Warren Ballentine, who hosts a syndicated show on black talk radio networks, today. And he also called in for a conversation with Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo, the popular host of widely syndicated Spanish-language morning program “Piolin por la Manana,” who pressed Obama on the issue of immigration.

“Politically it’s going to be tough. It’s probably tougher now than it was partly because of the fact the economy has been getting worse,” Obama warned Sotelo.
