Back then, like now, Romney was able to easily that accusation out of the park. Because when you hire contractors to do work in or around your home, it is not YOUR responsibility to validate that the workers are are U.S. citizens. That is the responsibility of the contractor, who hires and pays these workers.
I had my roof done a few months ago and the roofing company brought workers that may or may not have been citizens but did I have the responsibility, or even the right, to walk out there, order them down the ladders and inspect their credentials?
There are plenty of legitmate reasons that we should not be supporting Romney for president but this is not one of them.
Well I’m not particular, I don’t care what brings Romney down, as long as something does. If this were to destroy him, I’d be just as happy as I would be if it were something others found more substantive.
