These stories are meant to make us angry and depressed. I’m not playing.

Who was it here that said, “we’ll deal with Romney later”? Mitt Romney ... our own little Socialist.

Mitt Romney told the Denver Post on Monday that is he is elected president he will not cancel President Barack Obama's deferred action program for young illegal immigrants before instituting another immigration plan.

He’s referring ONLY to those who have already been granted the two year visa....

Romney apparently is the one who then is making us angry and depressed. Did anyone twist his arm?

Who really believes anything either side says, 1 month before the election?

Doesn’t that affect over one million illegal immigrants?

Obama’s “plan” was televised more than one month ago, and just now, one month before the election Romney pulls a “I support Obama on this one” stunt.

I really don’t trust Romney on this issue of illegals/amnesty. Don’t really trust him on the matter of gay marriage and the gay agenda, either. And have serious doubts about him genuinely working to overturn Obamacare.

God, I hate this election so very much.

And trying to revoke a two-year visa will no doubt result in a court battle lasting more than two years. I say it's a non-issue. He did not say he would RENEW the visas in 2 yrs.

Yogafist said it best on another thread:

So Romney is saying he agrees with the abuse of power this executive order constitutes. He agrees the president should not be limited by congress or the rule of law.

Hey Romney, which laws am I allowed to break with impunity? Why don’t we start with speed laws. Everyone breaks them. Why should I be punished if I get caught? '

The left-wing press is delighted to report these moments, because they know they will anger and discourage conservatives.

And it’s always a good idea to take a close look at what was REALLY said, because the left wing press lies and distorts.

Nevertheless, regretably, they don’t always need to lie about Romney, the way they did about someone like Rick Santorum. Romney DID recently say that he supports aborting babies who are conceived by rape, even though he’s currently pretending to be pro-life. And he DID just say that he would not reverse Obama’s gift of rights to illegals.

And his record in office was even worse. This is just what he’s admitting to while trying not to turn off his base. Not much doubt that he will favor widespread amnesty if he gets into office, just like the Chamber of Commerce. And abortion. And gay marriage. And gay sex in the barracks. And socialized medicine. And so forth.

If that’s discouraging to the base, Romney bears most of the blame for it. That’s who he is, and it’s delusional to pretend otherwise. He is just barely an alternative to Obama the destroyer.

At this point nothing reported about Romney will keep me from crawling to the polls over broken glass if necessary to vote against Obama.

If Obama’s Administration gives deferred action to a illegal immigrant, if legal or illegal, what is Romney supposed to do? Get in office, find those that are here, as far as they know, legally, and kick them out? I don't think so.

He can shut down the program by Exec Order for people not yet selected pending a comprehensive immigration program; but he's not going to deport those who were given a free pass by Obama.

Let's all hope this is an issue on January 21st!

The left-wing press indeed likes these stories, but did anyone twist Romney’s arm to make him say what he did, and all the other countless times he has pulled stunts like this and flip-flopped-flip-flopped-flip-flopped-flip-flopped, and tossed conservatives under the bus for the umpteenth time?

And I wouldn’t doubt that Romney likes the left-wing press, too, especially at times like this.

I didn't mean to imply that your were baiting anyone, I meant Romney was being baited by the question asked.

What do you think we would be hearing about from now to Nov. 6 if he would have stated otherwise?

I'm no fan of Romney and am hoping he was just sidestepping what would easily become another media attack/diversion.

Yes, it’s painful—we’ve got to work as hard as we can at this point to get, essentially, Olympia Snowe elected as our next president.

See, when a lot of us sat home because McCain was “not conservative enough”, they aided and abetted Obama. Now, they bitch when Obama does what we all warned and circumvented the Constitution.

ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.

Now Romney is being asked of he would revoke legal documents issued by the executive branch which would likely take more than two years to revoke, if anyone has had to deal with the INS/ICE/DHS knows, you can delay any action as long as you want.
It’s pointless to send in armed teams to arrest these people that did something considered “legal” (at the time) when you can just allow the visas to expire. When at that time they will undoubtedly get the legal process started again and wait until the next democrat returns to office or the blizzard of paperwork finally catches up.

more media attempts to suppress the vote.

Well, for 2 years, anyway. Sounds like nonsense double-talk to pander to Hispanics and moderates, while actually promising nothing at all. He did NOT answer a question as to whether he would ever consider new requests should be become president. My sources in the campaign tell me this is all B.S.

How can I be upset when we know he isn’t exactly a raging conservative?

It’s not really shocking he would replace this plan with something else, and keep in mind now he’s running.

If he said anything about getting rid of it or deporting etc., do you think that would help him....not really. It would be in the media for weeks about what a racist he is etc.

Also, it appears he is simply saying only those who got a VISA would be allowed to stay under that provision.

I have no problem with that.

Gov Jerry Brown of Calif sign a bill yesterday that allows these ‘illegals’ to apply for California driver’s licenses.

The Motor Voter Law in Calif REQUIRES DMV staff to give an applicant VOTER REGISTRATION application material at the same time they apply for a driver’s license.

There is enough time for many illegals under this plan to apply to vote in Calif—and they are NOT citizens!!!!!

You could show me video of Romney in bed with 3 whores and eating live puppies and I would still vote against Obama, a white hating - country wrecking - constitution destroying - lying socialist - homosexual loving - corrupt organized crime boss - anti-American - incompetent epic failure - arrogant Black muslim bastard son of a communist whore.

This election continues to be about the very survival of America and the future of my grandchildren.

Obama and his filthy tribe MUST be removed from the Peoples White House, PERIOD. The theft of our country MUST BE STOPPED.

Did you even read the story? If so, did you pass your 3rd grade reading comprehension lessons?

This was an interview with the Denver Post. Romney is in Denver for the debate. Romney did not just hold some news conference to make a statement on this topic out of the blue.

A president Romney will change little or nothing of what he inherits from the kenyan. He may obtaina veto of Obamacare but it will turn out to be a mere renaming of it as "Romneycare.

The presidency is now irretrievably endowed with near absolute power. Romney will think well he will use it for "good" but the problem is the existence of the power. Nothing good can come of it.

I really don’t trust Romney on this issue of illegals/amnesty. Don’t really trust him on the matter of gay marriage and the gay agenda, either. And have serious doubts about him genuinely working to overturn Obamacare.

The Romneybots have conveniently chosen to forget (as usual) that Romney (at least) once employed an illegal alien as I seem to recall and only reluctantly fired him/her prior to the last time he ran for President. And that was only after it was revealed by the MSM and he was called out on it because he was trying to portray himself as being tough on the illegal alien issue. So typical of the Romney we have all come to know and love  

Maybe Romney really wants to re-employ the illegal in question. Hmmmm.....
