Romney Can’t Make Up His Mind About Immigration
Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama Sunday for failing to pass long-term immigration reform through Congress, but despite three attempts by Face The Nation host Bob Shieffer, Romney repeatedly refused to say whether he would overturn Obama’s decision to end deportations for some young undocumented immigrants if he becomes president.
The first time, Romney ignored the question. The second time, he said it would be a non-issue because he would be able to pass long-term immigration reform through Congress quickly — something that President George W. Bush was unable to do, in large part because of opposition from his own party.
“Well, it would be overtaken by events if you will, by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a president but on a permanent basis,” said Romney.
Romney said Sunday he believed Obama had decided to issue the new directive now for political reasons.
“I think the timing is pretty clear,” he said. “If he really wanted to make a solution that dealt with these kids or with illegal immigration in America, than this is something he would have taken up in his first three and a half years, not in his last few months.”
When Schieffer asked whether Obama “did it for politics,” Romney replied, “Well, that’s certainly a big part of the equation.”
Ya’ll I’m a bit confused. I would like to think that someone who’s a “Presidential Candidate” you would have thought about things like this before the race. You would think , someone would know their own positions and what they’d do….oh let’s see….before they entered the race. I’d be damn sure I knew what my position was before I sat down for an interview. I mean it’s not like this topic was a big surprise. Ugh…this man is an idiot!
Btw…I used that picture above because he looks like a big blowhard.
