He also didn't take a stand. Understanding he's a politician, that's also typical Mutt Romney.

The prime directive is to boot Obama out of the White House.

There is no upside for Romney to get into a debate with Obama over illegal immigration - the upside on that issue is all for Obama.

Romney wins and Obama loses when the daily debate is about the economy and jobs.

Obama will do anything to change the debate to other issues.

Romney needs to avoid being sidetracked from pounding Obama on the economy and jobs, jobs, jobs.

I don't see how this does achieves that end. Mutt didn't even say he'd overturn the order. This may well make him no different from Obama, which is the chief criticism he bears among actual conservatives.

Yes, the debate needs to center on the economy. But Romney needs to multitask. He needs to establish real differences between himself and Obama and for someone who claims to be so hawkish on immigration, this would have been a great opportunity to capitalize on an issue that generates white-hot conservative support.

Instead, he gave us the finger. Again.
