100% our azz…
Mitt’s trying to clean up his controversial “47%” comments aired in an undercover vid we showed you earlier this week. Problem is, he just keeps digging himself into a deeper grave!
The Repub candidate tried to redeem himself tonight, but it fell on deaf ears.
During a live forum on Univisions “Meet the Candidate”, Mitt had this to say in disguise as an apology for insulting those who “feel entitled” to health care, food, and housing:
“My campaign is about the 100 percent of America, and I’m concerned about them…I know I’m not going to get 100 percent of the vote, and my campaign will focus on those people we can think we can bring in to support me…”But this is a campaign about helping people that need help.”
B*tch please. The “forum” was also Mitt’s chance to address the Latino community that he’s struggling to win over.
Robney was asked serious questions on immigration, the main focus of the night, and gave his usual aloof answers when it came to self-deportation, the Dream Act, and undocumented immigrants (or illegal immigrants as he likes to call them). Mitt’s solution to that “little” problem; veto the Dream Act and encourage “self-deportation”, which basically causes “attrition through enforcement,”; making life so difficult that “they” would choose to leave. SMH
Refusing to give a solid answer on the problem, Mitt dodged the questions left and right.
“I’m not in favor of a mass-deportation effort, rounding up 12 million people and taking them out of the country…I believe people make their own choices as to whether they want to go home and that’s what I mean by ‘self-deportation.'”
Oh ok…now we get it.
According to The Huffington Post:
Romney has been evasive on how he would deal with undocumented immigrants currently living in the country. Obama has said he would support giving some immigrants legal status if they meet certain requirements, including paying a fine. Romney has refused to say whether he would end Obama’s new deferred action policy that removes the deportation risk faced by some undocumented young people who would be helped by the Dream Act.
Romney was repeatedly pressed to say whether he would end the policy, but only said he doesn’t need to answer because he would fix the issue through legislation. That was no comfort to many immigration advocates, who know the difficulties of passing immigration legislation in Congress.
“Are you going to deport them or not? Yes or no?” Salinas asked Romney, as translated to English by Univision.
“We’re not going to round up people around the country and deport them, that’s not — I said during my primary campaign, time and again, we’re not going to round up 12 million people … and have them deported. Our system isn’t to deport people.”
Salinas pressed on. “That’s your answer, that you’re going to allow them to stay?” she asked.
“I’m not going to be rounding people up and deporting them out of the country, we’re going to put in place a permanent solution,” Romney replied.
Robney’s on a sinking ship and no amount of SOS’ are going to get us to throw this idiot a life jacket.
