Add MSBC's senior political analyst Mark Halperin to those suggesting Obama's latest delay of the Obama employer mandate was done for political purposes. Halperin told the Morning Joe panel Tuesday:

“This latest delay, I agree there have been others obviously, but this delay I think is really going to set people off more than the others, simply because it involves a delay past the [midterm] election and that screams of politics without an alternative explanation.”

In a discussion with CNN host Jake Tapper Monday, the network's senior political analyst said the same as well, adding that the delay was also yet another admission by the White House that ObamaCare is still flawed.
