Romney would not revoke Obama’s illegal immigrant DREAM Act
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/02/2012 | Neil Munro

Posted on 10/02/2012 3:33:38 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

Republican nominee Mitt Romney had a burrito at Chipotle with Sen. Rob Portman on Tuesday in Denver — the city where the national Tex-Mex chain began. That same day, he announced he would not revoke the two-year work-permits being given by President Barack Obama to roughly 1.26 million illegal immigrants.

He also released a Spanish-language TV ad and posted a pro-immigration statement aimed at Hispanic voters that criticized Obama’s “temporary, stop-gap measure” to defer deportation for select young illegals.

<snip>

“Mitt Romney will keep in place any temporary waivers and work permits the Obama Administration grants. … These young people have already been subject to enough uncertainty and politicking; Mitt Romney will not add to it,” said an Oct. 2 statement from Dimple Gupta, legal policy adviser for Romney.

Damned if we don't vote for em, damned if we do.

Just when I feel like I might be able to actually close my nose off tight enough to keep out the stench and vote for him, we get another outrage.  Well mitt, you go ahead and suck up to those ILLEGAL immigrants.  Gaining the support of ILLEGAL immigrants who are taking jobs away from LEGAL citizens will make you loose conservative American votes that happen to be LEGAL citizens.  Zero sum gain.  Jackass.

As has been heard before, at least if O'crappy wins, we'll be rid of mitt forever.  I wonder who Karl Rove and the GOPE machine will give us to vote for in 2016.  Olympia Snowe?  (~Well sure idiot conservative base.  Mitt lossing in 2012 simply meant that we didn't go far enough to the left!)

What Mitt said is that he will not recall any 2 year visas which have already been issued or will be issued during the remaining DAYS of Obama's term.

To date...only a few have been issued and it's 1.5 months into the program. The visa costs almost $500 and a lot of proof.

It is impossible to respond to all the damage the enemy mulatto has done in a one sentence answer.

Let's get the kenyan bastard out and deal with all his shit after he's gone.

I doubt he undoes much of anything Obama has done.

All the hoops citizens have to jump through to exercise their God-given and Constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms (when that right isn’t totally abrogated anyway), but they can’t and won’t control the border and keep track of people here either short-term or illegally. Instead they reward them while disarming the law-abiding citizens who have to suffer the imcreased crime.

As for Romney-the main reason I have for voting for him is because even though we WILL have to fight him, at least both hands aren’t tied behind our backs by calling us “rayciss” when we oppose him. Hussein is completely protected.

The plan is to get Romney into the White House and then work on him,relentlessly,when needed.Work on him regarding wetbacks,taxes,terrorism,etc,etc,etc.

Why not work on Osama? In a second term,when he never has to worry about another poll or worry about removal from office by the Senate? Yah,that'll work!

I bet Romney wishes he learned to speak Spanish fluently instead of French when he was at the Mormon language school. He could visit father’s birthplace in Mexico and claim to be the first Mexican American presidential candidate.

Everyone already knows Romney is not the ideal candidate. Virtually no one here wanted Willard. Unfortunately, he is who we have. 3rd party's don't work in this county. Even Ron Paul figured that out. Heck, even the LaRouchies knew that and ran as Democrats. Most of the time in a 2 party system like ours we will all be stuck voting for the least bad candidate. That's just how it is. If Obama wins we are going to cross the tipping point and there is probably no way back. Romney, lackluster though he is, at least gives us a slim chance of turning things around.

With Romney telling us he’ll leave Obama’s unlawful actions in place, I guess we really should start ramping up our impeachment machinery as soon as possible ~ these pukes who run for public office have to be made an example of.

Actually, I agree with Romney on this, not just because of the thing in itself, but because of the looming election.

There are a huge number of older teenagers in the US who were brought here as very young children. They went to school here, speak English, are fully integrated, and are effectively de facto Americans.

Mexico is a foreign country to them, and to deport them back to Mexico would result in horrific abuse and murder. But at the same time, they should not be given citizenship outright.

The bottom line is the whole thing is up in the air right now, and will have to be hashed out in congress, that will likely have both houses as Republican. Only then, after January 20th, can Romney even *say* what he wants to do with it.

On his own, not much. And (the new Republican) congress definitely wants their say as well.

So yes, no, maybe, something else. We all have to wait for this one to be hashed out later, not now, when no matter what is done, the Democrats will pound on the Republicans about it.

So, why don't we have the least bad candidate this time?

Seems to me we have the guy who had the most cheaters in his corner.

We need to change that standard.

That's what the primaries are for and conservatives simply failed. Yes Willard had big bucks to tear down his rivals, but Mitt wasn't that strong. He was beatable and everyone knows it. He won the GOP nomination because the other primary candidates were just extremely weak. Conservatives will rarely have the big money. They need to be able to connect with the people with charisma and sound ideas they can forcefully argue and defend. We just didn't have that this time around and that allowed the milquetoast hug-the-center centrist to win.

General elections in a 2 party system are rarely an affirmative endorsement of any candidate or set of ideas, it is simply a choice between the only 2 candidates that can win. That is all.

No, primaries aren’t they problem ~ they are a symptom of the problem. We can fix much of the difficulty by opting for Caucus and state Conventions ~ but we need to do a decapitation of the top end of the party ~ the RNC itself ~ so that we can write rules that keep this from happening again.

A solution, if what you describe is a real problem needing one, is for us to simply seize a couple of border states in Mexico and turn that territory into a buffer state.

The illegals then get sent there to their own country and they can take what rubbed off in American culture with them.

I don't care if they came from someplace else of course ~ just they need to get out of here. We have a legal immigration practice to enforce and keep in place to serve our own interests. NOBODY should be allowed to skip the line!
