Skip to comments.Romney would not revoke Obama’s illegal immigrant DREAM Act
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 Obamas temporary, stop-gap measure to defer deportation for select young illegals.
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!)
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.
Illegally implemented DREAM Act
Expect Romney’s support for Tax Increases tomorrow.
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.
how many more ways can romney suck?
-he is doing everything WRONG!
can we please have ryan instead?
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 doubt Obama undoes much of anything Obama has done.
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.
WEho ever thought he would ???
He ... posted a pro-immigration statement
I doubt Willard did that...
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.
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.
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!
Why don't we get rid of obummer first then see what Romney does in office?
They work cheap.
We can only guess what their policy is ~ Romney will share it I am sure.
You can’t just decapitate a political establishment like that in a democratic setting. They are the establishment for a reason and as such have a considerable amount of support and power. An insurgency of conservative people with convictions and energy working within the party can force their way into power and, over time, take charge. Just remember that in not long this new power will form a new establishment with it’s primary goal being to hold on to power at all costs. It’s a cycle that will probably keep repeating itself in both party’s for as long as they exist in our 2 party system.
FACE PALM ALERT!
That's the only time it's been done. It's the right way. Whatever special expertise the GOP-e might have can readily be replaced by folks who are even smarter than them who have superior expertise. I really have no intention of shedding tears over the GOP-e and their running dog lackeys.
Unfortunately, when I look at our Southwest, it seems as if the reverse is taking place. Our border regions are no-go zones for American citizens, and in several states, so are our schools.
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.
We probably only have to do that once to get the message across.
I really have no intention of shedding tears over the GOP-e and their running dog lackeys.
I sympathize with you, but lets be honest here - we elected a lot of Tea Party folks in 2010 who didn't exactly bring the revolutionary zeal to Congress many/most hoped for. The GOP-e can't be blamed for all of that either. There is a human nature element here that all groups, movements and organizations deal with. Most folks get into power and first and foremost want to stay there. An establishment is created to do precisely that.
Look, Romney is a lackluster candidate who does not represent conservative values. I'm sure we agree on that. I am not even the slightest bit excited to vote for Mitt and have the lowest of low expectations for him should he win. I argue we all must cast a ballot for Romney/Ryan as the only thing we can do on election day that has any hope of removing Hussein from office. It may already be too late for this country (my hunch is that we've already crossed the tipping point), but it's just foolish to entirely give up. If we can somehow drag Willard over the finish line, at least we might buy this nation a few years to come to its senses.
Yeah, that’s quite a “Good cop/Bad cop” act the Republicans and Democrats have going these days.
Two sides of the same coin.
And, this is a surprise to whom??? This is why Romney is such a marginal choice. He won't repeal ObamaCare and he won't strike down any of zero's EOs.
This is essentially why I will be writing in "None of the above" on my ballot.
Flame away. It won't do you any good, but take your best shot.
When it comes to political parties things can be far more freewheeling! In fact, in the United States there are not just 2 parties there are well over 100 parties. We've gotten along with fewer in the past, but today there are over 100 parties ~ at least 50 (possibly 52) of them the state Democrat parties, and at least 50 of them the state Republican parties.
The national committees ~ the RNC and the DNC, are creatures of the state parties.
My proposal is to create a NEW REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE
It starts business with a simplified set of rules that allow each of the state parties to structure internal caucuses for the major coalition partners ~ which we can all name in about 10 minutes. The caucus members, in turn, would have several prerogatives no one else currently has which is to STOP any specific candidate from becoming the party's national Presidential candidate simply by winning delegates in caucuses, conventions and primaries.
US Senate rules have a parallel structure regarding appointees, so it's not something Americans are not familiar with ~ actually it's as American as apple pie and Howitzers!
The states would be invited to send delegates to the new RNC ~ and they could send their existing Republican state committeemen, or a new insurgent party (which we probably need in several New England states) could send delegates (again, as invited, and after a state caucus or convention having met and selected them)
The new RNC would accept or reject delegations.
Something similar as done at the DNC convention where two parties sent delegates ~ and even today there are a couple of states that actually have two separate and distinct Democrat parties.
When the Whig party went down, the Republicans picked up the mantle at the top and spent 2 or 3 years organizing state agencies ~ creating new political parities where necessary and/or possible.
Building a major party up from a small base is impossible, and a slow strike ~ bwahahahahah ~ the GOP-e would destroy the competition as fast as it raised its head. Just forget those guys and go straight to a new party structure that has Florida, Texas, the Lower Midwest, the SE, the intra mountain West, and no California, or NE ~ and no RINOS ~ However you want to define them.
What you suggest was posed for a different problem.
There are so many violent offender Mexican citizens in US prisons, who are supposed to be deported on release, that the Mexican government has officially asked the US to not deport more than a certain number each month, as when they cross the border they are recruited by the drug cartels and immediately start killing people.
So it has been proposed that the US build detention camps just north of the border, for “administrative detention” prior to release.
However, on the previous subject, a lot of the kids who were raised in America are little different than American kids. You can imagine the horror if American kids were tossed across the border into Mexico.
They would face several fates: slavery, rape, or murder, or a combination of the above. While the Mexican kids are not citizens, in the short term we are stuck with them. They are adopted, and they have no sane alternative to staying here.
The next congress will hopefully create some kind of accommodation as national policy, so that the situation can be resolved without committing some horrific peacetime crimes against humanity.
Romney and Ryan are both fine and dandy with a gay military. You don't get much lower than that.
Whatever... They aren't getting my vote.
BTW, American kids go to Mexico all the time ~ so do American adults.
Another point, people from Africa and East Asia have difficulty differentiating between Mexicans and Americans anyway.
Well, that settles it! I’m voting for Obama! < /sarc >
