RNC official: Romney’s “still deciding what his position on immigration is”
HotAir ^ | Tuesday May 8, 2012

Posted on 05/08/2012 10:59:46 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

The Republican National Committee attempted to walk back a potentially bruising botched response Tuesday after an official said Mitt Romney is still making up his mind on immigration.

“As a candidate, to my understanding, he’s still deciding what his position on immigration is,” said Bettina Inclan, the RNC’s director of Hispanic outreach…

Within minutes, as Inclan’s comments started spreading on Twitter, RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski stepped in and said Inclan’s comments had been misconstrued.

“We never said the governor is still deciding on immigration,” said Kukowski. “I want to make sure we are exponentially clear.”

Willard Milt: the Ineligible and backstabbing RINO:
"I bet you $10,000 that whatever my position
on immigration will be, which ever day as it mutates,
it will ALWAYS be reported on FOX-Bain "News"
by my anchor-wives as both severely conservative
and exponentially clear.

I know wikipedia is not considered a reliable source, but it looks like this applies:

Metastability

Flip-flops are prone to a problem called metastability, which can happen when two inputs, such as data and clock or clock and reset, are changing at about the same time, such that the resulting state would depend on the order of the input events. When the order is not clear, within appropriate timing constraints, the result is that the output may behave unpredictably, taking many times longer than normal to settle to one state or the other, or even oscillating several times before settling. Theoretically, the time to settle down is not bounded. In a computer system, this metastability can cause corruption of data or a program crash, if the state is not stable before another circuit uses its value; in particular, if two different logical paths use the output of a flip-flop, one path can interpret it as a 0 and the other as a 1 when it has not resolved to stable state, putting the machine into an inconsistent state.

With geometric logic I can prove that it is exponentially clear that Romney is severely conservative.

Wait a minute here. Roll tape on some of those debates where Romney almost took the STRONGEST POSITION of anyone on immigration. Said over and over how he was in favor of removing the “magnets” that draw them here.

Guess that didn’t mean he was going to actually get rid of THEM — just the magnets.

I’m as shocked as you are that Romney’s somewhat firm stances on e-verify, self-deportation, and other immigration issues during the primaries are now being reconsidered as people start focusing on the general election./sarc. off

The half-life of any Romney position is only a minute or so.

Any “severly rational conservative” should understand that he intends to deport all the illegal-aliens except for eleven plus million that he is going to give amnesty.

That’s actually a sensible position (shock! from Mitt of all people). Be permissive about immigration per se, but make it very unattractive to be here illegally.

Not possible , though.
IIRC, courts have already ruled that illegals cannot be denied the same welfare benefits available to citizens. We’d have to cut the freebies to everybody (good idea!) but fat chance of that!

I think he may have damaged some other organs straddling those fences.

It's a strange thing that just days after Ann Coulter declares Romney to have the greatest immigration policy since John Adams and the Alien Sedition Act, the RNC (that's the GOP establishment for those of you in Rio Linda), hedges their bets on his policy.

I'm not even sure the GOP establishment wants Mitt to win.

A “Romnesty” that called for making the least disobedient segment of illegales into permanent residents without the ability to become citizens unless they then spent five years or more back in their home countries, might make sense.

Shoot, Democrats shouldn’t really care. If they can get the dead to vote, these permanent permanents will be a piece of cake.

Magic 8-ball and Etch a Sketch - not toys but essential tools for Myth.

Sorry, I can’t bring myself to vote for this guy, as much as I hate Zer0.

He’ll have liberal policies out the wazoo and will slide them past compliant R’s and complicit D’s in Congress.

I said it. Myth is worse for America than Zer0. At least the GOP will TRY to fight Zer0. Myth? I doubt it.

Pretty simple. There is only one RINO who is “next in line” but the conservative base of the party always gets split between fiscal, social and libertarian candidates. So RINO “wins” some of the key early primary states.

Official polygamy (Mormon and Moose style, a maximum of four spouses) would be less-bad than the utter farce called “gay marriage.” If this is what Mitt wants and he’s just yielding on “gay marriage” to ease the path, he really ought to just quit that and focus frankly on the polygamy. He’d get lots of dissent, but I believe much more respect that way.

You could get a very polymerized clowder that way, of course. Because a wife of a four-wife man could herself have three other husbands, who... and before you know it everyone in the USA is an inlaw of an inlaw of....

You honestly think Blubbery Boehner or Turtle McConnell will do anything but support everything Myth proposes? And what are the odds that a majority of GOPs in Congress will fight against their party leaders?

And by the way... those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Here’s my point though.

Suppose Zer0 proposes an Amnesty Bill. O’Connell and Boehner fall over themselves to oppose it. Every GOP except for the ultra-RINOs fight it as well. The bill either gets held up in filibuster or voted down.

Now suppose Myth proposes an Amnesty Bill. O’Connell and Boehner fall in line. Do you honestly think they would buck the top Republican? Let’s say there are about half of GOP Congress who oppose it because they have integrity, despite pressure from above. That leaves the lily-livered RINOs to fall in line. Add most of the Dims who vote for it because hey! Amnesty is what they’ve wanted all along. Add it all together and you get Amnesty passed.

My conservative buddies make fun of my saying that Myth is worse than Zer0, then I do the legislative math, then they agree with me.

Go ahead and disagree with me if you like, but all I ask is that you run through the scenarios and really think about this before you cast your vote this November.
