THOSE OLD Republican hot buttons are growing cold. For proof, check out a recent interview with Mitt Romney, a former presidential candidate and ex-governor of Massachusetts.
According to TheHill.com, a congressional newspaper that publishes when Congress is in session, "Romney believes that one way to attract more minorities to the GOP is to pass immigration reform before the next election, saying the issue becomes demagogued by both parties on the campaign trail." The article also quotes Romney as saying, "We have a natural affinity with Hispanic-American voters, Asian-American voters."
This could be extreme political repositioning, even for Romney.
. . . . .
How Romney gets beyond the flip-flop-flips of his multiple-choice positions on immigration and other issues is a mystery only he can solve.

Back to his AMNESTY Bill supporting self...
The Boston Globe is losing $85 million this year so screw them and screw Mitt if he is getting cold feet.

I still support any Republican nominee over any Democratic nominee. But Romney is definitely less conservative than Bush, and far less conservative that he portrayed himself to be on the campaign trail. If it’s a choice between him and Palin or Jindal, I would reject him in favor of the alternatives.
WE don’t need “more minortiies”
We need more AMERICANS
Slick Willard *ping-a-ring-a-ring*
But...but...it’s from the Boston Globe, they’re lying about Mitt’s positions! < /Romneybots >
I guess the romneybots won’t attack me anymore for posting this 11 second video.
The guy had tons of money, (belated) establishment support, and he still couldn’t beat McCain. Hell, he couldn’t even Huckabee. Global warming lunatic Mark Hussein Sanford has a better chance.
Slick Willard changes his positions more than a Nevada Whorehouse full of johns.

What a pathetic, opportunistic POS Romney has revealed himself to be.
Romney on the 2007 AMNESTY Bill...
“We need to find a path to citizenship”
“We cant send them back”
The neo-Whig party is just looking for a way to self-destruct.
I voted for him against Juan McCain, but if he’s pulling out that old “conservative Hispanic” chestnut that worked out so well for the GOP last election, well...he’d better go back to Bain and forget about politics. Illegal aliens will latch on to the public tit at the first opportunity. Anybody who doubts that is either insane or dishonest. Mitt must have gone over to Juan’s and had some margarita Kool-Aid.
From the video “..establish legal residence...”
Romney is a traitor...
So when this guy claimed to be a born again conservative over night right when he decided to run for the GOP nomination and many of us didn’t believe it we were told it was because we hated Mormons. Surprise. We were right.
Is K-Lo still drooling over this guy?
