What is Romney's plan? Rubio's Quasi-Dream Act, a Daniel D. Portado (Self-Deportation) plan, ...?

I can't keep up with what Romney is supposedly going to go with concerning illegals.

First it was the ridiculous idea from Romney that illegals will self-deport. Remember Daniel D. Portado?

Then there was the buzz that some kind of Kobach plan would emerge.

Now there is supposedly going to be some type of Rubio Quasi-Dream Act.

Who knows what Romney is going to go with. I guess more poll testing, and/or focus group work from the Romney campaign is needed before a plan emerges.

So many possibilities, so little time to poll test/focus group and choose?

What Romney will do is self destruct.

He’s got all the brains and half the charm of Joe Biden.

Nice try, GoP-e ,, you had a good shot at winning it all before and blew it .. you even kept the leadership pretty much intact.

Yur mistake. not ours, many of us will never get to vote in a primary anyway.. and if the lessons haven’t been learned yet by those who should know better.. then, no loss.

"First it was the ridiculous idea from Romney that illegals will self-deport."

BS! Why do some continue with the lie that the only choice is "deport them all" or Amnesty(by whatever name you call it)? FReeper should not be part of that, when historical proof to the contrary has been posted many many times on FR.

The fact is that with seriously enforcement of the law against a small fraction of them, a large multiple of that number WILL SELF-DEPORT. One of those proofs posted on FR many times was "How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico"- csmonitor.com - 2006 is excerpted below:

"... on June 17, 1954, what was called "Operation Wetback"

"By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught in the two states. Another 488,000, fearing arrest, had fled the country."

"By mid-July, the crackdown extended northward into Utah, Nevada, and Idaho, and eastward to Texas. By September, 80,000 had been taken into custody in Texas, and an estimated 500,000 to 700,000 illegals had left the Lone Star State voluntarily..."

[ That's a total of 130,000 arrested and deported and another 988,000-1,188,000 self-deported. ]

Similar results were achieved by prior Presidents Hoover, Roosevelt and Truman with their "repatrition" programs: Deport a serious number and a much larger multiple of that number self-deport. (See LINK)

It's not ridiculous at all. If current laws were actually enforced, many would. Myth says he will vigorously enforce current laws. Not that I bllieve him, but the theory is sound.

La Raza Marco Rubio has a DREAM Act?

Who would have imagined that, months after he opposed AZ1070.

We don’t need a VP who puts his ethnic group first.

This is the Romney plan: (1) beat-up on conservatives and (2) lose to Obama. This winning strategy was brought to America by the RINO elite establishment that are joined at the hip to the Donkey Party.

Yep. The Rubio DREAM Act is basically complete and total amnesty and citizenship for illegals who were here under aged. It might take a tad longer for them to get their citizenship, but they’re here protected and legal all along until it comes through.

Norms comment, “many of us will never get to vote in a primary anyway.. “ WHY IS THAT???
For the last few presidential cycles I am getting more and more pissed-off...
On what stone tablet is it written that the first primary be held in tiny-asse ((new (Olde) england)) fliberal New Hampshire??... followed by a ?caucus? wtf is that? in Ioway?

Sorry but the entire state (how does it qualify?)
of new hampshire wouldn’t make a decent sized wart on Naperville Illinoise arse...

And Iowa?? don’t they have television in that cornfritter state? The rest of the country has primaries but iowa HAS TO BE DIFFERENT!! sit all day in a (no bathroom break) caucus to make their constipated decision! WTF!?

Sorry but it is time for a change...you and I don’t need or want to see a bunch of presidential nominees waste our donated money on political television ads in new hampshire on 10 people who might or not watch? For what seems like an eternity - just so that we get to see who they elected to get their 1 1/2 delegate to the convention - big whoop!

And Ioway... Only Rick Santorum was dumb enough to visit every village in the entire frickin’ state to win their SUPER DOOPER ENDORSEMENT and 2 1/2 delagatii to the cornvention...

Two INCONSEQUENTIAL states that with t.v. MarxStream fliberal pundits help made a mountain out of two tiny anthills - WHAT A FRICKIN JOKE! sORRY - BUT I’M SICK OF IT!

Time to regain our sanity and put the new hampshire’s and ioways in their rightful place of INSIGNIFICANCE!

I think (therefore I is) that we have ?maybe 4-6 regional primaries with say 1-2 weeks between primaries with 4-6 debates in-between! That’s it!
Chosen by lot in Sept/Oct as to the order of the regional primaries!
Just to keep it from getting tooo confusing - MANDATE that each candidate be allowed ONLY 2 TWO - 30 minute ad spots on television (no commercials) to be run FREE on a rotating Major Network basis in each Region.

This way the “playing field” can’t be TILTED in a rich guy’s favor and everybody will have the same opportunity to present their ideas or if they wish to run ATTACK t.v. spots - but remember ONLY 2-30 minute spots per region. And best the Networks don’t get Squat Money!

As far as PAC’s,union and corporate, (attack or pro-candidate) ads, LIMIT the number of $$$dollars that they can spend (per candidate) in each region! Who needs to see the same bogus negative attack ad 5 times a day for weeks on end - Eff Themm! They only influence the STUPID!

Internet Ads.... it’s free! “So let the sky be the limit”!

Ohhh! and you can’t spend any of your own “personal wealth” to buy yourself the Presidency! Like Romney, Kerry, Edwards and a slew of other lameasses..

I’m sure others have thought likewise and this was just off the top of my head and can be - refined.

Time to get the filthy money out of our (campaigns) and get ideas and people involvement, back in!

Mandatory! Presidential debates like Newt suggested!
