The day following President Obama’s reelection, a pensive Rupert Murdoch seemed eager to find a comfortable position in a political landscape which doesn’t seem that much different, really. Compromise might be tough when opponents balk at the idea of an America split 50/50.

In August, Murdoch had joined with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a push to convince Mitt Romney to campaign on easing immigration rules for Latinos, who are “naturally Republicans,” he said. Murdoch repeated the call today.

Speaking of the fiscal cliff, inflation and unmanageable debt reminds us of the many hard-working family people here legally and looking for work.
